Left Alone
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 repeated words "this is the sound beating of my loves" paint a picture of intense emotions surging within the singer. The sound of beating, or pulsing, representing the singer’s loves suggests the rapid, overwhelming feelings of love that they’re experiencing. It’s as if their love is so powerful it transforms into a physical, audible manifestation. The lines “all I want is to be left alone” and “left alone” serve as a sharp contrast to the initial lines. The singer wants to be left alone with their overwhelming love, suggesting that perhaps this love is unreciprocated or too intense for others to handle.


The verses delve deeper into the singer’s emotional state. The line “cannot swallow blue found vow” is difficult to interpret, but it could signify the difficulty of accepting a promise or commitment made to the singer, leading to a feeling of sleeplessness or restlessness. The line “gonna watch you fake it now” suggests a feeling of betrayal or disappointment from someone close to the singer. The repetition of “breathe in sorrow” and “breathe out sorrow” creates a pattern of emotional distress that the singer is trying to overcome. But in the end, they will “find them peace in loss” and still feel proud, despite their struggles.


Overall, "Left Alone" is a powerful and emotive song that explores the intense emotions of love as well as the loneliness and struggle that can come with it.

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
