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 lyrics of Flume and Chet Faker’s “Left Alone” paint a picture of an individual who is at a crossroads in their life, struggling with the idea of isolation and the pursuit of inner peace. The song opens with a repetitive chant of “This is the sound beating of my loves,” which can be interpreted as a metaphor for the emotional turmoil that the singer is experiencing. The line “All I want is to be left alone,” further emphasizes the desire for solitude, but as the song progresses, it becomes apparent that it isn’t just physical isolation that they seek.


The line “Cannot swallow blue found vow” alludes to the idea of a relationship or commitment that is suffocating them, and their inability to “swallow” or accept it. The singer is also grappling with their own “suffering bones,” and is struggling to find a way to cope and “breathe out sorrow”. However, through their struggles, there is a glimmer of hope, as they strive to find peace in their loss and hold on to their sense of pride.


Overall, “Left Alone” is a hauntingly beautiful depiction of the complexities of human emotions and the journey towards finding inner peace in the face of adversity.

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
