"Chosen" as written by and Dev Hynes Adam Bainbridge....
It was the last weekend of September, I stayed up all night long
Waiting for the fire ache in my heart to subside
It never happened
He was the most beautiful boy I'd ever seen, most beautiful boy I'd ever met
My favorite books, around the clock scars of my knee
I see him behind my lids in a bright grey shirt
I see him running tripping and falling, covered in dirt
I see a lot of these things lately i know, I know none of it is real

It's in the way that he moves but I don't want to choose

Another day and I'll lose, but i don't want to choose

Face to the ground, change the sound
Time in your mind, make it right

It's in the way that he moves but I don't want to choose

Another day and I'll lose, but i don't want to choose

    My InterpretationMan, the intro to this song is so powerful. I love the beat, and it continues throughout the song. The addition of the french woman talking about a lost love invokes a bittersweet sadness to the song.

    "It’s in the way that he moves
    But I don’t want to choose
    Another day and I’ll lose
    But I don’t want to choose"

    Not wanting to choose, to make a conscious decision, even though you know you are just losing another day with the same feeling. It's so hard to let go of this feeling, such a strong feeling of love.

    "Face to the ground
    Change the sound
    Time in your mind
    Make it right"

    You have your head down. Listening to the music of your soul. It's time to move on from the lost love and make it right.

    Ultimately, I think this song is about how hard it is to let go of love. I have listened to it time and again doing the exact same thing as the verse above.

    I have experienced lost love because of my own faults. It's hard to let go.

    Happy interpreting,

    Eric
