(Listen to your heart)
(Listen to your heart)

I know there's something in the wake of your smile
I get a notion from the look in your eyes, yeah
You've built a love but that love falls apart
Your little piece of heaven turns to dark

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do

I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
But listen to your heart
Before you tell him goodbye

(Listen to your heart)

(Listen to your heart)

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile
The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yeah
They're swept away and nothing is what is seems
The feeling of belonging to your dreams
To your dreams

Listen to your heart
When he's calling for you
Listen to your heart
There's nothing else you can do

I don't know where you're going
And I don't know why
Listen to your heart
Before you tell him goodbye

(Listen to your heart)

    This song is about a girl who is greatly in love, but the boy isn't what the girl thought he was. At first, everything was perfect for her, but the boy made things fall apart, especially after she realized that he is different from what she thought. In the middle, the artist is beckoning the girl to listen to her heart, to see if he is really worth it. If keeping him and staying in love is worth the dark times they boy creates. The artist is singing of how she doesn't know the girl's choice, or how it will be chosen.done, but all she knows is that the girl is listening to her heart.

    To me, this song is advice to another girl. "I don't know where you're going and I don't know why." Maybe the girl she's speaking to is working towards something (a goal or dream) and she's thinking about letting go of the guy because she's scared the guy will be a distraction from her dreams... "Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile. The precious moments are all lost in the tide, yea. They're swept away and nothing is what is seems, the feeling of belonging to your dreams."

    The singer may have let go of a guy to pursue her dreams, but she regrets it because she didn't listen to her heart. Now, she's trying to stop someone else from making the same stupid mistake.

    "And there are voices that want to be heard. So much to mention but you can't find the words. The scent of magic, the beauty that's been when love was wilder than the wind." She's saying that there are voices in your heart that want to be heard when they tell you "don't let him go."

    That's just kind of what I think.

    My Interpretation

    I think this song has two different meanings really! One for the person that they would like to be with or a dream that they have in their head. They just dont have a clue about what they will have to do to achieve their dream to get that special person! So they are saying that they will listen to their heart before they decide that they are going to give up on them.

    The other meaning that I have seen within this song is that the singer has experienced some problems with their partner so they are thinking about what they will have to do to resolve it or that their trust has been damaged. So they are thinking if they have to let them go so that they dont hurt themselves some more or should they keep them close as they once were. Where something may be eating them up inside and they can put up with it since they love that person and are willing to put up with their mistakes. So they are looking to their heart to see if they have the right idea on what they are doing with their partner.

    This is what I think really so quote me if I am wrong or not as I am really wanting to know what others think about this double meaning that is here!

    Actually. It's about a girl whose boyfriend chose another girl over her, and now she's trying to put away her feelings for the boy and tell the other girl not to let go too easy, to listen to her heart.

    i agree with you shallremain i think their singing from a past experience "Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile" and their aking sure that the person listning to the song is going to make the right decision becasue once you make a decision like breaking up with the one you love you may neva be able to undo that misstake

    i think it could be like yeah, shallremain, advice to another girl- maybe she was in love with some guy, but going to let go because . . . it wasn't 'worth while', but, just, before you really do that, 'listen to your heart'

    to me this song is about a girl that has to leave someone she loves and she knows she will probably never get to see that person again and another person i telling that girl before you leave make sure you are doing the right thing and you know you wont have any regrets after leaving "listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye" but that is just what I think

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"
