"Salvation" as written by and Joel Laslett Pott Gabrielle Aplin....
You are the avalanche
One world away
My make believing
While I'm wide awake

Just a trick of light
To bring me back around again
Those wild eyes
A psychedelic silhouette

I never meant to fall for you but I
Was buried underneath and
All that I could see was white
My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my

Oh

You are the snowstorm
I'm purified
The darkest fairytale
In the dead of night

Let the band play out
As I'm making my way home again
Glorious we transcend
Into a psychedelic silhouette

I never meant to fall for you but I
Was buried underneath and
All that I could see was white
My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my

Oh, oh, oh

My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my
My salvation
My, my

    General CommentAplin explained the song's meaning:

    "It's about having something you go to that's consistently there," she said. "You have some sort of salvation - whatever it may be. It could be God. It could be a friend. It could be a girlfriend or a boyfriend. It could be anything."

    General CommentThis is about having someone come into your life when you least expect and they bring you out of a dark place or time

    You are the avalanche (sudden, quick)

    One world away (they can take you into a completely different world to the dark one your in at the moment)

    My make believing (it's like a dream or a desire. It doesn't feel real)

    While I'm wide awake (but it is real. It's woken you up to the rest of the world around you not just the bubble you've been living in)

    Just a trick of light (not really there just a trick)

    To bring me back around again (to bring me back to the tea world)

    Those wild eyes (something new something different)

    A psychedelic silhouette (together you're opposites. They're the colour to your darkness)

    I never meant to fall for you but I (your not in the right frame of mind. Not supposed to be thinking about love right now)

    Was buried underneath and (underneath all the grief)

    All that I could see was white (could only see one thing I.e. One colour)

    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my

    You are the snowstorm (Avalanche again)

    I'm purified (you remove all the bad parts)

    The darkest fairytale (it's like your own fairytale but with a twist of darkness)

    In the dead of night (your life has been like night until they came. Dark, lonely,silent)

    Let the band play out (tell everyone I'm back from where I've been. I've gotten away from that dark spell)

    As I'm making my way home again (back to normal)

    Glorious we transcend (it's amazing how you've pulled through)

    Into a psychedelic silhouette (same as before)

    I never meant to fall for you but I
    Was buried underneath and
    All that I could see was white
    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my

    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my
    My salvation
    My, my
