Lyrics:
I’m coming up slowly
I’m high on emotion
With waves of this feeling
As wide as the ocean

And then I see you
When I feel like I’m drowning
And then I see you
It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay, I’m alright again
It’s okay, I’m okay, it’s okay

Take me to that place where you always go
When you’re sleeping or your day takes you low, so low
When I’m on + off again

Take me to that space when I need someone
When I’m shaking or my mind starts coming undone
When I’m on + off again
You turn me on

See me through this wild tide
Stay with me through all of time
If I’m drenched in madness, tangled blues
Won’t you
Oh won’t you

Take me to that place where you always go
When you’re sleeping or your day takes you low, so low
When I’m on + off again

Take me to that space when I need someone
When I’m shaking or my mind starts coming undone
When I’m on + off again
You turn me on

Take me to that place
Won’t you take me to that place where you always go

Background

In an interview with BBC Radio 1's MistaJam, Rogers stated "This was one of the very first songs—I made it right after 'Alaska'. The lyrics, there’s this sort of sexual cliché in the song. There’s a lyric that says you turn me on, but if you listen to the rest of the lyrics, that is actually about emotional stability and being on and off and finding a person that grounds you. I think that’s one of the most important things to me in relationships."[6] She also said in an interview with Pigeons and Planes's Eric Skelton "It's a song you can dance to and a song you can get down to, but for me there's a lot of heart and soul in it, too."[1]

Critical reception

Mike Wass of Idolator called it "a dizzy love song with breathy vocals and warm, multi-layered production."[7] Paste's Carter Shelter said "there are hints of Sia in the chorus, but the song retains that touch of atmospheric minimalism that made 'Alaska' such a standout. Rogers is batting three for three right now, and the signs don’t point to her letting up."[2] Chris Payne of Billboard stated that "On and Off" "sounds quite contemporary in 2017—not as singularly so as the transcendent 'Alaska'—but a solid offering nonetheless. And as a wistful, glistening, downtempo pop song, it's perhaps her best crossover play yet."[8] Pitchfork's Cameron Cook said "Rogers' voice is practically bursting at the seams with originality, and her new track solidifies her status as a veritable breakout star. Structured around a tight keyboard loop and Rogers' pitch-shifting falsetto, it elegantly recalls a carefree summer that so many dance singles try to capture, but much like her breakthrough hit 'Alaska', retains a homespun feel that sets it apart. After an echoing handclap announces the chorus, Rogers, chants her way across a velvety electronic groove, layering her vocals like a choir. There's an earnestness here that you simply can't fake. Standing at the intersection of so many genres (pop, folk, soul, and dance), Rogers' music is united by the brazen heart she wears on her sleeve."[9]

Music video

A music video, directed by Zia Anger, was released on February 1, 2017.[10] Carter Shelter of Paste described the music video: "[the video] sees Rogers and a trio of backup dancers working through choreography and costume changes in what appears to be one continuous take. Rogers comes across as charming, lacking the distance that often results from traditional pop shine (see: Sia), which makes it obvious why director Zia Anger left in the moment when she and her compadres break into laughter after completing the routine."[11]
