Flashing by

It's a beautiful state we're in
But how can we love in isolation?
Think how happy we can be
When we just try

We're nothing like we seem
Passionate words are never spoken
You don't know how I bleed
When I leave your side

In your eyes
Love's alive
We've come untied
'Cause we're flashing by
Like satellites


Take all the rules away
How can we live if we don't change?
We're always on display
Let's run and hide

And in our eyes
Love's alive
We've come untied
'Cause we're flashing by
Like satellites


If we don't communicate
We'll exist in our own space
We have all the love we need
While we're apart, I cannot breathe

    General CommentThis song is serene, like a ukelele festival on your last night in Hawaii. When I first listened to the song, I didnt pay attention to the words because it just put me in a serene mood. But when you listen to it, the song paints a pretty picture. This song is about two people who like each other, but are scared to show emotion, so they just pass each other..... like satellites. (in orbit) GET IT?

    General CommentI think it's about being in a relationship where you are going through the motions without meaning any of it, just "flashing by". It seems she wants it to work, she wants to try but it's about making her other half work for it too. They've become "untied" but it's not how she wants it to be.

    I don't know but that's just what I got when I heard it.

    My InterpretationI think it's about a relationship that's faltering.
    Two people truly in love but never admitting that something is wrong nor trying to fix it.
    Instead of flourishing, they're just existing in this relationship they've built; Just passing each other by.

    General Commentwell . this is what i think....

    ok so they used to have a good relationship but now itz goin downhill. Shez sayin that instead of sittin there not trying to fix the relationship we should make an effort to fiz it because everything we need to fix it is right in front of our face...we jus have to try.
    Shez also sayin that they try to act like they are a good couple and have a solid relationship wheen they both know the truth.

    and some of the lyrics are wrong. it says "in our eyes loves a lie...."

    and yea diz song could be bout jay-z
