Kylie Minogue - Crystallize

"Crystallize" is a song by Kylie Minogue. It was written by Kylie, Dev Hynes and Scott Hoffman (Babydaddy from the Scissor Sisters). The song was released as a charity on June 9 2014 by Parlophone as part of the 'One Note Against Cancer' Campaign.

Background and composition

Prior to the release of the single, Kylie announced that she would be releasing a charity single; fans were given the option to bid on one note in the song on an auctioning website, and once all notes were sold, Kylie released the song. The money made from the auctions went towards the 'One Note Against Cancer' campaign.

"Crystallise" was written by Kylie, Dev Hynes and Scott Hoffman, whilst production was handled by the latter two. At a running time of three minutes and ten seconds, "Crystallize" has a tempo of 118 beats per minute and is set in the key of D Major. "Crystallize" has been noted for its musical similarities to 2004's "I Believe in You" and 2010's "All the Lovers"

Release

"Crystallize" was recorded during the sessions for her twelfth studio album Kiss Me Once (2014), but was not included on the final track listing of the album.

The song managed to chart within the Top 40 in Flanders and Wallonia. In Spain, the song managed to chart inside the top 50 charting at number 44.

Lyrics

When everything is caving in
A you don't know what you're gonna do
When everyone has up and gone
And you don't know what will get you through

When you don't know if you should go or stay
You only have to turn my way

Baby you can always count on me
Just come and look deep into my eyes, crystallize
So don't go runnin' from my lovin' everything's gonna be alright
When you and I crystallize

Crystallize, crystallize
Oh-oh whoa

And now that we are suddenly
Able to take ourselves away
Want you to know I won't let go
Baby I got you all the way

When you don't know if you should go or stay
You only have to turn my way

Baby you can always count on me
Just come and look deep into my eyes, crystallize
So don't go runnin' from my lovin' everything's gonna be alright
When you and I crystallize

In the darkness
When it's all a mess
And when you're swimming through a sea of broken promises
You can find me
Shining like a laser beam

Feel the light

Baby you can always count on me
Just come and look deep into my eyes, crystallize
So don't go runnin' from my lovin' everything's gonna be alright
When you and I crystallize
