"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

    General CommentI love this song. It's so sincere in it's portrayal of a breakup. It's somewhat bittersweet in the sense that the protagonist is comforting herself to know that 'it's okay to be afraid, but it will never be the same'. That lyric really resonates with me, cause in every falling out there's that feeling that encapsulates confusion, fear of not knowing what will happy from that day onwards and hope for the future that this heartbreak will be over.

    I also think that 'explosions' serve as a metaphor in the sense that she can still shine at her very best, creating magic with another person whom she might meet in the future, tying into the concept that everything will be ok.

    However, I think the most realistic part of this song will be how she 'will love you (him) another time' It's self explanatory but resonates with everyone. Relationships will inevitably end and it truly reflects her acceptance that this breakup belongs in the past. . .
