"Swelling" as written by and Sarah A. Jaffe....
Hello
How do you feel?
What does that mean?
What does that mean?
Hi
I guess I feel high
Cold sweat
Dripping down
My body

Are you trying to tell me something with your eyes?
All I wanna do now is lay down and die
If you're gonna do it
You better do it right
But my heart won't stop swelling

Hello
How do you feel?
What does that mean?
What does that mean?
Hi
I guess I feel high
Cold sweat
Dripping down
My body

Are you trying to tell me something with your eyes?
All I wanna do now is lay down and die
If you're gonna do it
You better do it right
But my heart won't
Are you trying to tell me something with your eyes?
All I wanna do now is lay down and die
If you're gonna do it
You better do it right
But my heart won't
But my heart won't
But my heart won't stop swelling

    My InterpretationThis song doesn't just talk about a dying love but might talk about suicide as an alternative of heart breaking or in any case an assisted death/suicide by the ones who let you down and didnt love you...

    General CommentI guess this song is about how you feel after a break up and the only person who can do something about the pain, is the person that caused it.
    So people start to search for other things to relief the pain, in this case, she uses drugs.
    she’s also thinking about suicide, the person who has caused the pain could change her mind, but she wants that person to be clear, ‘cause otherwise the suicidal thoughts will win.

    ‘hello, how do you feel?
    what does that mean?
    what does that mean?’
    > she wants to know how the other person feels about the break up and she’s a bit confused.

    ‘hi, I guess I feel high
    cold sweat, dripping down my body’
    > this is about the drugs and the effect it has on a human being.

    ‘are you’re trying to tell me
    something with your eyes?
    all I wanna do now is lay down and die
    if you’re gonna do it
    you better do it right
    or my heart wont stop swelling’
    > I guess her love is playing with her feelings and she wants him/her to be clear. Otherwise she would rather die. He/she is the only one who can save her with his/her love.
