Youth
Daughter Lyrics


Shadows settle on the place that you left
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time
From the perfect start to the finish line

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong

We are the reckless, we are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there

And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone
We're setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our home
It was a flood that wrecked this home

And you caused it
And you caused it
And you caused it

Well, I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette
I'm a lifeless face that you'll soon forget
And my eyes are damp from the words you left
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest

And if you're in love, then you are the lucky one
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone
Setting fire to our insides for fun
To distract our hearts from ever missing them
But I'm forever missing him

And you caused it
And you caused it
And you caused it

LYRICS

Shadows settle on the place, that you left
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time
From the perfect start, to the finish line

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong

We are the reckless
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures

One day, we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there

And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead, and they are gone
We're setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home
It was a flood that wrecked this home

And you caused it
And you caused it
And you caused it

Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette
I'm a lifeless face that you'll soon forget
And my eyes are damp from the words you left
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest

And if you're in love, then you are the lucky one
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone
Setting fire to our insides for fun
To distract our hearts from ever missing word
But I'm forever missing him

And you caused it
And you caused it
And you caused it

DAUGHTER LYRICS
"Youth"

Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time.
From the perfect start to the finish line.

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.

We are the reckless,
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there.

And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.
We're setting fire to our insides for fun.
Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our home,
It was a flood that wrecked this home.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it

Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette,
I'm a lifeless face that you'll soon forget,
And my eyes are damp from the words you left,
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

And if you're in love, then you are the lucky one,
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them.
But I'm forever missing him.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it

Wow, with Covid and lock down this song has really taken on a new meaning. Literally every line of the song can be applied to what we have been going through.

"Shadows settle on the place, that you left
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness"
Yep those places that we could use to go to that are now closed and the troubling feeling of life that we are missing out on.

"And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs"
Breathing difficulties due to this contagious respiratory illness that people are lucky to avoid contracting.

"Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong"
Those people that are risking getting sick in order get laid and have a good time.

"We are the reckless
We are the wild youth"
Pretty straight forward, young people being wild and reckless, disobeying the rules.

"Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there"
We are all predicting what the outcome of Covid will be, not all of us believe that it's real but time will tell. If we go out there and ignore the "FAKE NEWS" we could find that it was not fake at all and end up dying prematurely before we get to see our futures.

No doubt Daughter never planned to write a song about a pandemic 7 years ago but the lyrics certainly match up to what is happening now.

First time heard this song in 2014 on a morning commute to work from a random radio station that just played songs non stop. Once I got to my computer I searched for this song by lyrics and fell in love with other songs as well.

Fast forward had a bad situation with someone and had to cut the tie and this song actually affiliated with the whole situation.

One of my dearly beloved friend who used to break in to my locked PC found out this song and also fell in love with Daughter. We loved to exchange newfound songs and movies.

Then he was getting close to a girl whom he liked. I was trying to be supportive, even paired them in queen and king popularity contest, which actually happened since everyone found it's a good idea and voted for them. Too bad on the D Day I went to the biggest rave party here and really can't missed it. From the documentation I can really see that he was really happy, and it made me happy too.

After several months they seemed to split and I was curious of what actually happened but his answers are just confusing and circling.
And not so long after that he ended his life. Found out from our close friend that he told her about his grim childhood trauma and the girl felt disgusted. What makes me sadder is that he didn't even told me about it.
I was angry, sad, and all of the emotions were drowning me because it's too sudden. And I can't even see him for the last time.
Now this song would always reminds me of him.

I hope you are happy wherever you are now, Silly Wabbit. And happy birthday!
Loving you.
Always do.
