Softly, gently, I will let you down
'Cause I don't love you in the same way now
I can hold you but not with lover's arms
'Cause you are more of a brother to me now
And I can lie next to you, but I can't lie to you

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you the future's easy
So don't weep, for me it's getting

I loved you for exactly who you are
And I'd say you've come the nearest yet by far
And I can lie next tou you, but I can't lie to you

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you the future's easy, so don't weep, for me it's getting

Steeper and in the dark that's where I want to be
Deeper, I'm going somewhere you won't want to see

So walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain
For you the future's easy, so don't weep
Yes I will watch you
Walk into the sun and watch me
Run into the rain drops
For you the future's easy, so don't weep
For me it's getting

    My Interpretation
    The verses, to me, means that the singer's feelings for the person she's singing this to has changed and doesn't love them in a romantic way anymore. "For you the future's easy so don't weep, for me it's getting steep" - depression, perhaps "Steeper and in the dark that's where I want to be. Deeper, I'm going somewhere you won't want to see" - these words make me think that the composer is going into a deep depression and doesn't want the other person to see what that's like.

    this song is about a woman falling out of love with a man. It doesn’t feel right anymore and she can no longer lie about her feelings. She wants to end the relationship because looking down the road, she sees her future with him is getting steep.

"Zombie" is about the ethno-political conflict in Ireland. This is obvious if you know anything of the singer (Dolores O'Riordan)'s Irish heritage and understood the "1916" Easter Rising reference. "Another head hangs lowly Child is slowly taken And the violence caused such silence Who are we mistaken - Another mother's breaking Heart is taking over" Laments the Warrington bomb attacks in which two children were fatally injured on March 23rd, 1993. Twelve year old Tim Parry was taken off life support with permission from his mother after five days in the hospital, virtually braindead. "But you see it's not me It's not my family" References how people who are not directly involved with the violence feel about it. They are "zombies" without sympathy who refuse to take action while others suffer.

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
