"Polaroid" as written by and Daniel Wayne Sermon Dan Reynolds....
I'm a reckless mistake
I'm a cold night's intake
I'm a one night too long
I'm a come on too strong

All my life I've been living in the fast lane
Can't slow down
I'm a rollin' freight train
One more time
Gotta start all over
Can't slow down
I'm a lone red rover

I'm a hold my cards close
I'm a wreck what I love most
I'm a first class let down
I'm a shut up sit down

I am a head case
I am the color of boom
That's never arriving
At you are the pay raise
Always a touch out of view
And I am the color of boom

All my life I've been living in the fast lane
Can't slow down
I'm a rollin' freight train
One more time
Gotta start all over
Can't slow down
I'm a lone red rover

Oh
How did it come to this
Oh
Love is a polaroid
Better in picture
But never can fill the void

I'm a midnight talker
Oh I'm an alley walker
I'm a day late two face
I'm a burn out quick pace

I am a head case
I am the color of boom
That's never arriving
At you are the opera
Always on time and in tune
And I am the color of boom

All my life I've been living in the fast lane
Can't slow down
I'm a rollin' freight train
One more time
Gotta start all over
Can't slow down
I'm a lone red rover

Oh
How did it come to this
Oh
Love is a polaroid
Better in picture (oh)
But never can fill the void (oh)

I’m gonna get ready
For the rain to pour heavy
Oh, let it fall, fall
Let it fall upon my head

All my life I've been living in the fast lane
Can't slow down
I'm a rollin' freight train
One more time
Gotta start all over
Can't slow down
I'm a lone red rover

Oh
How did it come to this
Oh
Love is a polaroid (oh)
Better in picture (oh)
But never can fill the void (oh)
Love is a polaroid (oh)
Love is a polaroid (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Love is a polaroid (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Love is a polaroid

    General CommentThis song appears to be about how he, well, thinks his life is a waste of time, and how the 'you' he often references (probably a love) is in comparison, perfect. He's a head case, will wreck what he loves most, but she's the opera, always on time and in tune. He's saying how love (his love, at least,) is nothing more than a Polaroid, looks great in pictures, but it'll never fill the void he has.

    My InterpretationHe would never meet someone who he blends well with. Every relationship he finds himself in never seem to work out. He doesn't allow it to get him down. He keeps moving forward knowing that to have that "perfect Kodak relationship" is only a dream.
