Go slow.
So that I can hear everything you're sayin.
Now I know you're goin.
You just threw this away.
You know i ain't gonna take it.
Go Slow.
You know you ain't gonna make it.
I know.
I can't make you stay.
But I'll be hurtin from the heat.
Running from the heat.

Well, well, was it something that I said.
I know that it was something I said.
From your heat now.
I'm going crazy trying hard to forget.
You know I'm trying to hard forget.
From your heat now.
Oh I just wanna go back hold on to the way that I was
Cuz you took away all my young life.
And I hate who I've become from your heat now.
From your heat it's comin, comin.

I know.
I'm givin in and believin every lie.
For now, the moon, it's night.
I turn off the light.
But you should put the foundation.
Go slow.
Now.
With your intimidation.
I know.
You turn away now I'll be hurt from the heat.
Heat.
Running from the Heat.

Well, well, was it something that I said.
I know that it was something I said.
From your heat now.
I'm going crazy trying hard to forget.
You know I'm trying to hard forget.
From your heat now.
Oh I wanna go back hold on to the way that I was
cuz you took away all my young life.
And I hate who I've become from your heat now.
From your heat it's comin, comin.

From the heat now.
From the heat now, now, now, now.

Well, Well, was it something that I said.
I know that it was something I said.
From your heat now.
Well, I'm going crazy trying hard to forget.
You know I'm trying to hard forget.
From your heat now.
Oh I wanna go back hold on to the way that I was
cuz you took away all my young life.
And I hate who I've become from your heat now.

Go back...
Go back...

From your heat now.
I just wanna go back. Go back. Go back.

Go back...
Go back...

    General CommentThis is my favorite Haim song by far. And by no means am I a Danielle-hater, but I would love a recorded version with Alana on lead vocals, chorus-wise. This song is amazing live, and the intertwining of all three of their voices is showcased so much better in that type of forum. The recorded one sounds more like Danielle over Danielle which undermines the power of the song, I feel. Anyway....

    Love, love, love. The song is a slow build. It's quiet, like a ticking time bomb. It musically sounds like the calm before the storm, and then turns into an actual storm, lyrically, when Danielle bursts forth on the chorus.

    It's all about the "heat," the passion, the pressure, the immediacy, all the extremes that contrast so well with the languid-esque nature of the music, itself. The lyrics "heat" is even built up and crescendo-ed upon repetition.

    "Oh, I just want to go back, hold on, to the way that I was, 'cause you took away all my young life, and I hate what I've become." Not a line you throw away nonchalantly.

    I suppose that doesn't contribute much, interpretation-wise, but I can't dote on this song more. It's the one I recommend to all people after the obvious song recs. It's about a slow but powerful burn.

    My InterpretationThis is also my fave song on the album. I connect to this song so much because for me it literally describes my relationship with my ex when we broke up.

    To start off..the first verse to me is the break-up. "Go slow so that I can hear everythin your saying." Someone dealing with the news that it's over. They're realizing they can't do anything at this point to try to make the other person stay and they're having a hard time accepting it."Just threw this away" Sounds like just one bump in the road and the other person didn't care enough to make this work which pains the other person even more.

    The heat for me is the pain. What came from this break-up. And they're trying to run away from it but all they can do is think about everything that has happened and it haunts them. They know they have to move on but it just hurts so much and because of it they've become someone else. Someone afraid and always in pain and unable to trust anyone again. They just want to be normal and happy again but because they put so much love into the relationship and got hurt because of it, they don't think they'll ever be the same.
