El disco te parece que es:

La canción cuenta con un audiovisual dirigido por Drew Cox.

El vídeo oficial dirigido por Olivia Rose, se estrena el 3 de mayo de 2018. Rodado por la fotógrafa Olivia Rose en la ciudad natal de Jorja, Walsall, presenta un reparto compuesto enteramente por hombres, algunos de los cuales son conocidos en la región local. "Quería capturar a hombres y chicos de Walsall y Birmingham que tuvieran vidas diferentes en situaciones diarias para mostrar que los estereotipos con los que nos bombardean son engañosos y, en definitiva, dañinos. Elegí rodar en Walsall ya que es el sitio de donde soy y es el lugar en el que me inspiré para escribir la canción", comenta Jorja.

Olivia Rose describe el rodaje del vídeo como "un giro inesperado: acabé yendo a Walsall varias veces en una sola semana, para buscar locaciones y personajes. Lo que es realmente interesante es que muchos de los actores y lugares tienen una relación real con Jorja; su padre, los chicos que inspiraron la canción, el parque donde iba cuando ella era adolescente, el dueño del restaurante donde dio su primer concierto".

El vídeo es una oda a la región conocida como The Midlands. Rose continúa: "Queríamos también que se vieran protagonistas talentosos, sin que sintieran que estaban haciendo un cameo. Si prestas atención, podrás ver al poeta Benjamin Zephaniah, los músicos Jaykae, Despo, Mist y Mike Skinner, y el productor Preditah que trabajó con Jorja en 'On my mind'".


Letra

[Intro]
I wanna turn those blue lights into strobe lights
Not blue flashing lights, maybe fairy lights
Those blue lights into strobe lights
Maybe even fairy lights, not blue flashing lights

[Estrofa 1]
Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
When you hear the sirens coming
You better not run 'cause the sirens not coming for you
What have you done?
You went to school that day
Was a bit late but it was a Monday
Kept after class for answering back
You apologized any harm in that

[Estribillo]
I wanna turn those blue lights
What have you done
Into strobe lights
There's no need to run
Not blue flashing lights
If you've done nothing wrong
Maybe fairy lights
Blue lights should just pass you by

[Estrofa 2]
Gun crime into your right ear
Drugs and violence into your left
Default white headphones flooding the auditory
Subconscious waves you accept
You're sitting on the 4 back home
"Where you at, G? Answer your phone!"
Pause the poison to answer his message
Your boy sounds rushed, fears for his adolescence

[Estribillo]
I wanna turn those blue lights
What have you done
Into strobe lights
There's no need to run
Not blue flashing lights
If you've done nothing wrong
Maybe fairy lights
Blue lights should just pass you by

[Estrofa 3]
Tall black shadow as you're getting off the bus
Shadow shows no emotion so what's even the fuss?
But the face of your boy casts a darker picture
Of the red handed act, he's gonna whisper;
"Look blud I'm sorry 'cause I know you got my back
He was running, I couldn't think, I had to get out of that"
Not long ago you were miming to the "Shook Ones"
Now this really is part two 'cause you're the shook one
Hands you the tool as you question your friendship
How's man like you gonna make me a convict?
Level of a felon when I've done nothing wrong
Blood on my hands but I don't know where it's from, oh
You got blood on your hands but you don't know where it's from

[Puente]
You better run when you hear the sirens coming
When you hear the sirens coming
Better run when you hear the sirens coming
'Cause they will be coming for you
Run when you hear the sirens coming
Better run when you hear the sirens coming
When you hear the sirens coming
The blue lights are coming for you

[Estribillo]
I wanna turn those blue lights
What have you done
Into strobe lights
There's no need to run
Not blue flashing lights
If you've done nothing wrong
Maybe fairy lights
Blue lights should just pass you by

[Outro]
Blud, when you hear the sirens coming
Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
Blud, when you hear the sirens coming
Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
What have you d-d-d-done done
Don't you run
Don't you run
Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
