"Explosions" as written by John Frederik Fortis and Ellie Goulding....
You trembled like you'd seen a ghost
And I gave in
I lack the things you need the most
You said where have you been
You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide
I wonder why
I remind you of the days you poured your heart into
But you never tried
I've fallen from grace
Took a blow to my face
I've loved and I've lost
I've loved and I've lost

Explosions on the day you wake up
Needing somebody and you've learned
It's okay to be afraid
But it will never be the same
It will never be the same

You left my soul bleeding in the dark
So you could be king
The rules you set are still untold to me and I
Lost my faith in everything
The nights you could cope, your intentions were gold
But the mountains will shake
I need to know I can still make

Explosions on the day you wake up
Needing somebody and you've learned
It's okay to be afraid
But it will never be the same

And as the floods move in
And your body starts to sink
I was the last thing on your mind
I know you better than you think
'Cause it's simple darling, I gave you a warning
Now everything you own is falling from the sky in pieces
So watch them fall with you, in slow motion
I pray that you will find peace of mind
And I'll find you another time
I'll love you, another time

Explosions on the day you wake up
Needing somebody and you've learned
It's okay to be afraid
But it will never be the same

    My InterpretationIf you've ever heard of the song "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac it would pretty much get the same general, if not exact, meaning I think. It seems to be about someone who's left and has caused the other to feel extremely hurt. She/He is letting them go slowly and hoping they they find peace. The "explosions" signify a time when they may might feel the same pain they're going through and they might one day need them just as much as they did or do... But if they try to go back to what made them okay, in context the person they left, it won't be the same.
