"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 InterpretationI think this song is about a woman who was deeply hurt by a man who was never there for her, yet she loved him anyway. She told herself that he was right for her, because he was...his intentions "were gold", but she needed him when he wasn't there. Something happened between them, and it was like an explosion because it was a horrible experience for her. "It's okay to be afraid, but it will never be the same": no matter how many other men she meets, none of them will ever compare to this guy. "I lack the things you need the most, you said": he never appreciated her the way she deserved. "I remind you of the days you poured your heart out into...but you never tried": meaning he will always love her, but he never admitted it, or showed it. He never tried to be anything more. "You left my soul bleeding in the dark so you could be king": he left her behind, and broke her soul. He scarred her. "I was the last thing on your mind, I know you better than you think": she knows, deep down, he did care for her, but he never knew. "I love you another time": she knows he was the one, but he never accepted it. This song is extremely heartbreaking, and it applies to my own life sadly :(
