Love on an atom,
Love on a cloud,
To see the birth of all that isn't now
Can you imagine a love that is so proud?
It never has to question why or how
So I'd abandon the love in my dreams
When I wake up I'm soaking in my sheets

Breathe
Breathe
Believe, believe, believe, believe

For all of our youth
We have craved them
Their beauty and their truth

Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
Believe, believe, believe, believe
Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
Believe, believe

That we are loud like

Love on an atom
Love on a cloud
To see the birth of all that isn't now
Can you imagine a love that is so proud?
It never has to question why or how

For all of our youth
We have craved them
Their beauty and their truth
So we name them
And somehow they pull us through
We have craved them
For all of our youth

Breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe
Believe, Believe, believe, believe

We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love
We are loud like love

We are loud like love

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is obviously about parent/child relationship.
    "Love on an atom, love on a cloud."
    ~ Birth and death.

    "To see the birth of all that isn't now."
    ~ Birth, again.

    "Can you imagine a love that is so proud, it never has to question why or how?" ~ The love of a parent is unconditional.

    "Total abandon, the love in my dreams. When I wake? I'm soaking in my sheets." ~ To me this has to do with how obsessive parents about taking care of their kids. Even when they dream.

    "Breathe, breathe..."
    ~ A woman giving birth

    "Believe, believe, believe."

    "For all of our youth we have? craved them."
    ~ The idea of being a parent is always in our minds, even when we are young.

    "Their beauty and their truth"
    ~ Children are beautiful and truthful.

    "Breathe, breathe, breathe... Believe, believe, believe that we are loud like..."
    ~ Kids carry on our believes... and they are loud!

    "Love on an atom, love on a cloud."

    "For all of our youth, we have craved them. Their beauty and their truth."

    "So we name them and somehow they pull us through."
    ~ Very literal. You name your sons, you give them an identity and take care of them but in the end, they are the ones who give you strength and help you make it through life.

    This song definitely makes? me think about my parents. <3

    My InterpretationI think this song is about childbirth as well. The main character talks about this amazing dream that is becoming a reality for them. They had their love and now he's asking her: 'To see the birth of all that isn't now Can you imagine a love that is so proud?'. He still can't believe he's about to be a parent. Abandoning the love in the dreams might refer to giving up what he once thought was love because when you become a parent, you discover that there's another level of love.

    The love you have for your child is stronger than for any partner you could have. And the main character really wanted to be a parent: 'For all of our youth We have craved them Their beauty and their truth' - Children are innocent and always tell the truth. And that's the beauty about them. And yes, 'So we name them And somehow they pull us through' is showing how much strength we gain by being a parent. It's a whole different adventure. A new challenge unlike anything else, but children give us the strength to. So yeah, this song is all about becoming a parent.

    Link(s)"When you think of the first song 'Loud Like Love' being perhaps the first initial euphoric rushes of infatuation, and innocent discovery and youthful abandon..."
