Left Alone
Flume(Flume;Chet Faker) 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

The lyrics of Flume and Chet Faker's song 'Left Alone' contain themes of loneliness, introspection and emotional pain. The repeated phrase 'This is the sound beating of my loves' could represent the beating of the singer's heart, a physical manifestation of the emotional pain they are feeling. The lines 'All I want is to be left alone' and 'Left alone' could be interpreted as the singer's desire to be free from the pain caused by their relationships and the need to be solitary in order to heal.


The next few lines contain a mix of rambling thoughts and images of pain and suffering, with references to being unable to sleep and suffering bones. The lines 'Gonna watch you fake it now/Will I freak can I calm down/And I take it all at a loss' suggest the singer questioning their reactions and emotions, wondering if they will be able to handle situations or if they'll end up reacting in ways that could cause them to lose more.


The chorus repeats the same lines as before, ending with 'Breathe out sorrow', possibly suggesting the need to let go of the pain and find peace. The final verse contains a sense of determination to find peace and pride in oneself, despite the pain that has been endured. The line 'What my brain is bleeding for / And it hurts my darling, but breathe out sorrow' could represent the difficulty of letting go of pain, but ultimately realizing that it is necessary in order to move forward.

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

+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
