"Tautou" as written by and Jesse Lacey....
I'm sinkin' like a stone in the sea
I'm burning like a bridge for your body

I'm sinkin' like a stone in the sea
I'm burning like a bridge for your body
I'm sinkin' like a stone in the sea
I'm burning like a bridge for your body

    My InterpretationI'm sinkin' like a stone in the sea
    I'm burning like a bridge for your body

    Sinking like a stone in a sea... he's falling, and fast to a never-ending depth. AKA he is falling fast, and hard to an undeterminable depth for somebody

    "Burning like a bridge" refers to the saying of "burning bridges" between friends. AKA he is ruining relationships with people just to be with that one somebody.


    So yes, in my eyes, this is about an extreme passion/love for someone. But I believe the love is a dangerous (maybe even sinful) one due to the similes/metaphors they use.

    General Commentthis song feels pretty chilling. Its gorgeous, and so simple. looking forward to the new album so very much.
    Is this title something to do with Audrey Tautou (actress in Amelie)?
