"Is There Somewhere?" as written by and Ashley Frangipane....
You were dancing in your tube socks in our hotel room
Flashing those eyes like highway signs
Light one up and hand it over, rest your head upon my shoulder
I just wanna feel your lips against my skin

White sheets, bright lights, crooked teeth, and the night life
You told me this is right where it begins
But your lips hang heavy underneath me
And I promised myself I wouldn't let you complete me

I'm trying not to let it show, that I don't want to let this go
Is there somewhere you can meet me?
'Cause I clutched your arms like stairway railings
And you clutched my brain and eased my ailing

You're writing lines about me; romantic poetry
Your girl's got red in her cheeks, 'cause we're something she can't see
And I try to refrain but you're stuck in my brain
And all I do is cry and complain because second's not the same

I'm sorry but I fell in love tonight
I didn't mean to fall in love tonight
You're looking like you fell in love tonight
Could we pretend that we're in love?

I'm sorry but I fell in love tonight
I didn't mean to fall in love tonight
You're looking like you fell in love tonight
Could we pretend that we're in love?

    General CommentNo comments? I'm surprised - Halsey is incredible. To be honest, the first time I heard this, I promptly began crying - and I still do so from time to time.

    The meaning is fairly obvious - boy and girl hook up, girl starts to fall for boy, but boy has girlfriend, so she can't say anything because falling in love was never allowed. In the end, she admits to and apologizes for her feelings before asking if they can pretend they're in love, because she wants to believe that he loves her back - even if it isn't real.

    Though the meaning is straightforward, the way Halsey manages to make it so personal, yet relevant to anybody who's gone through this, captures the complexity of friends-with-benefits situations that accidentally become more to one person.

    Song MeaningThis song is absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking, definitely means a lot to me right now. Definitely about someone who's she's falling in love with though she doesn't want too because she knows it's not going to go anywhere, but she can't but help in fall in love with him and she can't have him because he already belongs to another.

    "All I do is cry and complain cause 2nd's not the same" She's crying, heartbroken, and complaining because she's not his first choice and probably never will be.

    The lines that hit me the most are "I'm sorry that I fell in love tonight. I didn't mean to fall in love tonight." You can't control your feelings, and sometimes can't help who you fall for, and she's extremely vulnerable at this stage in the song. Hits home hard.

    My OpinionThe line that hits the hardest for me is "I promised myself I wouldn't let you complete me".

    General CommentI love Halsey so much, a lot of her songs I can relate. I'm a guy! Her songs are so soothing and fun to try to understand. I agree with most of these comments. This girl doesn't want to interferes with love but she is dying because the guy she loves completes her soul. "I'm sorry but I fell in love tonight, I didn't mean to fall in love tonight" "you're looking like you fell in love tonight, can we pretend we are in love" amazing.

    Song MeaningThis song, to me, is about Halsey coming to terms with her sexuality (she is bisexual). The first lyric "You were dancing in your tube socks in our hotel room" is about a woman, as tube socks are typically worn by females who take up dancing.

    "I promised myself I wouldn't let you complete me." as "And I try to refrain but you're stuck in my brain." speak about how she doesn't want to make it a big deal. When she came out as bisexual, #tribi was a trending twitter hashtag, calling Halsey "tri-bi" (because she is bisexual, bipolar, and biracial). She hated it. The lyrics are bout her wanting to conceal it to avoid the "tri-bi" label.

    "I didn't mean to fall in love tonight" is talking about how she didn't choose to fall in love, she just fell in love. "Can we pretend that we're in love" is the line where Halsey comes to terms with the fact she is bisexual.

    My InterpretationI agree wholeheartedly that this song speaks to the complexities of forbidden love.

    The song has a very personal meaning to me and pretty much every word of it describes exactly how I'm feeling right now. Basically, I'm sixteen, I've never been in a relationship, and for the first time ever someone I love has expressed desire to spend time with me and get to know me. He cares about me deeply and often I feel as if he knows me better than I even know myself. I can't get enough of him and sometimes when I am with him I pretend that he can love me. But the thing is he can't love me- he bats for the other team :) So the result is, we are in a hands-off kind of relationship but it still holds all the qualities of a true romantic relationship. And until recently, I was super okay with this. I would pride myself in But after a certain series of events I've realized that
