"Little Talks" as written by Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir and Ragnar Thorhallsson....
Hey! Hey! Hey!

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear

The stairs creak as I sleep,
It's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

And some days I can't even trust myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There's an old voice in my head
That's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks

Soon it will all be over, and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love

Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right.
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

You're gone, gone, gone away,
I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart,
there's nothing we can do,
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon

Now wait, wait, wait for me, please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

    My InterpretationIts a song about an old couple. The women is probably suffering from alzheimer's or a similar disease that has mental side effects. "Some days a can't even dress/trust myself" answer, "its killing me to see you this way" the chorus is refering to either the truth about what this life actually means or the truth in a diseased mind, either one the ship (life) will carry there bodies (not minds) safe together until its over (shore).
    they begin to sing together when it goes "your gone gone gone away" and then the next five lines because the husband is watching his wife become a ghost of who she was and the wife can hardly recongnize her husband. "Just let me go we'll meet again soon" you dont have to fight to hold on anymore, but "wait wait wait" because there are short periods when she can remember.

    the little voice thats holding her back could even be her old self, holder her back from dying because the husband says "tell her that i miss our little talks" and she then says "soon it will all be over buried with our past" this could be a stretch but the song is titled "little talks"

    I think if you read and listent o the whole thing again with these ideas they will seem pretty obvious. Or I could be 100% wrong...
