"Walk in the Park" as written by and Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand Alex Kristian Scally....
You go for a walk in the park 'cause you don't need anything
Your hand that you sometimes hold doesn't do anything
The face that you see in the door isn't standing there anymore

In a matter of time, it would slip from my mind
In and out of my life, you would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

The face that you saw in the door isn't looking at you anymore
The name that you call in its place isn't waiting for your embrace
The world that you love to behold cannot hold you anymore

In a matter of time, it would slip from my mind
In and out of my life, you would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

More, you want more
More, you want more
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me

    General CommentI think this song is about getting over a breakup, and being so aware of the other person's absence from your life because you're so accustomed to it, "The face that you see in the door isn't standing there anymore" , and saying that only time can really fix it when the relationship only becomes a memory and then begins to fade, "In a matter of time it, would slip from my mind"..
    I'm not sure about the last bit, maybe the other person changing their mind about ending the relationship but the idea of it not being able to penetrate the numbness..this song is so beautiful and true

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs of 2010. What I take away from "Walk in the Park" is how time has a way of changing everything- looks, relationships, the world in general. It's a very sad song.

    As for "you want more"- it could be the person she is in a relationship with wants more from her but she is saying time is the only thing that possesses her.

    General CommentI almost feel like the end is what the fella would be saying to her. He wanted more than she had to offer and her response is that only time had only ever really been there to tend to her and mend her. Almost like it was there or going to be there more than she knew this guy was. Also maybe because this is a reoccuring event. That people pass in and out of her life and she consistently finds herself falling back into the hands of time, so shes use to it, though it still hurts and takes time. I really like how round her words sound. For some reason it reminds me of the movie LEGEND or maybe even Fern Gullie.

    My InterpretationThe tone of this song is very depressing. " You go for a walk in the park because you don't need anything...The hand that you sometimes hold doesn't do anything..the world that you loved to behold... etc." In a matter of time, you'll eventually be let down- is what beach house is bringing out through these lyrics. When you experience so many disappointments you feel all dried and hopeless. It's hard to give "more" after a certain extent because you've been damaged emotionally. This problem will exist" In and out of your life" until you let your disappointments slip away with the passing of time.

    My InterpretationHas anyone considered that this song could possibly be about dealing with the actual physical death of a partner?

    General CommentI think for the first stanza, the correct lyrics of the last two lines are:

    The face that you see in the door,
    isn't standing there anymore

    The third stanza may also start with "The" instead of "Your", but I'm not sure. I also can't tell if it's "The word that you learned to behold" or "The world..."

    By the way I really like this song :)

    General CommentI think this song is talking about breaking up. It could be that the narrator is wanting to lay out just what that means for the other person, hence the "in a matter of time, you would slip from my mind." It's about not knowing what you have until it is gone.

    The end makes me think the reason for break up is because its too controlling of a relationship (maybe even abusive) when she sing's "only time can run me" and "more, you want more."
