"Euphoria, Take My Hand" as written by and James Allan....
Heartbreak, I'm not holding your hand any more
Why can't you understand?
Euphoria, take my hand
Euphoria

Your ways, my ways
Never, always
The future, the past
The first, the last

Heartbreak, I'm not holding your hand any more
Why can't you understand?
Euphoria, take my hand
Euphoria

Right time, wrong line
Myself, I'm alien
I swear to god, lies and bad thoughts
1, 2, 3, 4, let go

Heartbreak, I'm not holding your hand any more
Why can't you understand?
Euphoria, take my hand
Euphoria

I wish upon a falling star
I feel, never felt, I hit
You hit me, sunshine a liking to our evil evening
Heartbreak, I'm not holding your hand anymore

Heartbreak, I'm not holding your hand, let me go
Why can't you understand?
Why can't you understand?
Why can't you understand?

Euphoria, take my hand
Euphoria, take my hand
Euphoria, take my hand
Euphoria

Euphoria
Take my hand
Euphoria
Take my hand

    Song MeaningI think this song is about letting go of heartbreak (not holding heartbreak's hand anymore), and instead embracing something better, freer (euphoria).

    Just heard this, too. Positively amazing song; his vocals really bring the lyrics to life.

    General CommentI think it's about taking ectascy or another drug that produces euphoria, because the song seems to be referring to a more immediate, urgent euphoria rather than just gradually getting over heartbreak.
    Also, the lyric 'right time, wrong line' hints at this.

    General CommentMore than anything, this song reminds me why I love, love, love indie music. Glasvegas make no apology for their bombastic, overemotional wrenching out of all the feelings that we have to stuff down inside ourselves every day in this world where nobody can really communicate with anyone about anything that's eating them up inside. Of course, when the box gets crammed full and the lid finally blows off, a few fine people can channel the explosive energy and you get great music. I'd go with the previous comment that this is about getting hooked on ecstasy after losing love. That's what I did, living up in Scotland for a year or so, going to that euphoric pilled-up place with my Glasgow clubbing buddies every weekend. We knew it wouldn't last. We knew we were all in serious psychic pain, even with the openness of ecstasy we couldn't really open up to each other, but at least there was some kind of mutual understanding there. We've all lost touch with each other now. I recently lost the friendship of a girl I've known half my life because the unrequited love became too unbearable for me, and I've been back on a bit of a clubbing, drink and drugs bender again the last few months. This is my life, I accept it, but without songs like this one I don't know where I'd be. I've been singing it over and over at the top of my lungs on my bike on late-night cycles home - I probably look completely mental, but maybe I might be able to release a little of the pain of passing by all the wonderful people of this world, those I've loved and wronged and lost, those who wronged me, those I met briefly in the depths of a club and shared a handshake and a few heartfelt words with, all of our generation with our divorced and warring parents and our resultant disturbed psychological states that make it difficult for us to sustain relationships. I often recall a line from the film 'American Splendor' - 'Why is life so beautiful, and so sad?' That is the feeling of euphoria that Glasvegas have captured here. Hope it does something equally powerful for you. Thanks for reading!
