Left Alone
Chet Faker; Flume Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This is the sound beating of my loves
This is the sound beating of my loves
This is the sound beating of my loves
This is the sound beating of my loves
This is the sound beating of my loves
This is the sound beating of my loves

Good down, I'm for long
Got my word to be someone
Good down, that's alright
All I want is to be left alone
Left alone, left alone, left alone
Left alone, left alone, left alone
Left alone, left alone, left alone
Left alone,

Cannot swallow blue found vow
More than that my sleep is wild
All I need is suffering bones
Breathe in sorrow
Gonna watch you fake it now
Will I freak can I calm down
And I take it all at a loss
Breathe in sorrow
Gonna watch you fake it now
Will I freak can I calm down
And I take it all at a loss
Breathe out sorrow

Gonna find them peace in loss
Holding by the knees and vow
I can always feel this proud
Breathe out sorrow
Oh I tell you something more
What my brain is bleeding for
And it hurts my darling, but breathe out sorrow
Gonna find them peace in loss
Holding by the knees and vow
I can't always feel this proud
Breathe out sorrow
Oh, I tell you something more




What my brain is bleeding for
And it hurts my darling, but breathe out sorrow

Overall Meaning

"Left alone" is an emotional song by Chet Faker feat. Flume. The opening verses, "This is the sound beating of my loves" repeat six times, setting a dark and brooding tone before the first verse. It speaks of a lover's heartbeat, a sound that is both comforting and haunting, and that represents the physical embodiment of love.


The first verse talks about wanting to be left alone but also needing to be someone. The lyrics carry a sense of inner conflict, the desire for solitude, and the yearning to stand out from the crowd. The chorus repeats several times, expressing the need to be left alone, to be free of the pain and the burden of the world.


The second verse delves deeper into the pain and struggle, using vivid imagery to convey the intense emotions. The singer talks about swallowing a "blue found vow," which could refer to a pill, and then says that all they need is "suffering bones" to breathe in sorrow. These lines convey a sense of self-destructive behavior and a willingness to suffer for the sake of feeling something.


The final verse speaks of finding peace in losing something, perhaps a relationship or a part of oneself. The line "What my brain is bleeding for" suggests that the singer is experiencing some kind of mental anguish or internal turmoil. The song ends on a mournful note with the repeated line, "And it hurts my darling, but breathe out sorrow."

Lyrics
[Intro: Chet Faker]
It's just a sound beating of my lobes
It's just a sound beating of my lobes
It's just a sound beating of my lobes
It's just a sound beating of my lobes
It's just a sound beating of my lobes
It's just a sound beating of my lobes

[Verse 1: Chet Faker]
Goin' down but not for long
Got no love to be someone
Goin' down, but that’s alright
All I want is to be left alone
Left alone, left alone, left alone
Left alone, left alone, left alone
Left alone, left alone, left alone
Left alone

[Verse 2: Chet Faker]
Cannot swallow blue found proud
More than that, my sleep is wild
All I need is softened bones
Breathe in sorrow
Gonna watch you fake it now
Will I freak, can I calm down?
And I take it all at a loss
Breathe in sorrow
Gonna watch you fake it now
Will I freak, can I come down?
And I take it all at a loss
Breathe out sorrow

[Verse 3: Chet Faker]
Gonna find them peaks and lows
Holding by the knees and vow
I can't always feel this proud
Breathe out sorrow
Oh, I tell you something more
What my brain is bleeding for
And it hurts, my darling
But breathe out sorrow
Gonna find them peaks and lows
Holding by the knees and vow
I can't always feel this proud
Breathe out sorrow
Oh, I tell you something more
What my brain is bleeding for
And it hurts, my darling
But I breathe out sorrow

@TheJalexx

+Makayla Rencher Almost completely wrong. Were you trying to get them wrong on purpose or something?

It's just a sound beating of my lobes(x6)

Goin' down but not for long
Got no love to be someone
Goin' down, but that’s alright
All I want is to be left alone
Left alone(x10)

Cannot swallow blue found vow
More than that, my sleep is wild
All I need is softened bones
Breathe in sorrow
Gonna watch you fake it now
Will I freak, can I come down?
Well I take it all at a loss
Breathe in sorrow
Gonna watch you fake it now
Will I freak, can I come down?
Well I take it all at a loss
Breathe out sorrow

Gonna find them peaks and lows
Hold them by the knees and bow
I can't always feel this proud
Breathe out sorrow
Oh, I tell you something more
What my brain is bleeding for
And it hurts my darling, but I breathe out sorrow
Gonna find them peaks and lows
Hold them by the knees and bow
I can't always feel this proud
Breathe out sorrow
Oh, I tell you something more
What my brain is bleeding for
And it hurts my darling, but I breathe out sorrow
