"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 InterpretationYou trembled like you'd seen a ghost (because she cheated on him)
    And I gave in (to the temptation of hurting him back like he hurt her in other ways)
    I lack the things you need the most (trust)
    You said where have you been
    You wasted all that sweetness to run and hide (from then on all his sweetness and kindness he hid away from her, to hurt her back)
    I wonder why (she wonders why they are like this, and if they love eachother why are they both always trying to hurt eachother back like a vicious cycle)
    I remind you of the days you poured your heart into (before this happened)
    But you never tried (he stopped trying in their relationship as soon as he found something more exciting in his life, and after she cheated)
    I've fallen from grace
    Took a blow to my face
    I've loved and I've lost (she loved him so much and now shes lost him)
    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 (they both need eachother, and are both afraid, but they know they cant go back since nothing between them will ever be the same now)

    You left my soul bleeding in the dark (the reason she cheated ,when he left her alone to deal with the distance of missing him, and his new life)
    So you could be king (making her feel insignificant in his life, as soon as something better came round)
    The rules you set are still untold to me and I
    Lost my faith in everything ( when he made her feel insignificant, over his amazing new life, which is why she resorted to doing the one thing that would hurt him most, cheating)
    The nights you could cope, your intentions were gold (when he didnt think about her cheating because he pushed her away, he was amazing and had the best intensions of moving forward)
    But the mountains will shake (but when it comes down to it, it will always be there, they can mask it, but the foundations will always be unsteady)
    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 ( i think this part is about when she was down, because she was lonely, and he was fine with his new friends and life, she was in the back of his mind)
    'Cause it's simple darling, I gave you a warning (she warned him she would leave him if he didn't help her through her rough patch in life)
    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 (piece of mind from whats happened, and can get over it, over what she did, because she was hurt and in a bad place)
    And I'll find you another time
    I'll love you, another time (maybe in the future when theyre both over it, they can get back together, but for now, they will just push eachother away and hurt eachother if they speak)

    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
