Left Alone
Flume featuring 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

"Left Alone" by Flume featuring Chet Faker is a heartfelt song that explores themes of loneliness, heartbreak, and the desire for independence. The repeated lyrics of "This is the sound beating of my loves" suggest a struggle between the singer's desire to be alone and their underlying feelings of love and attachment. The line "All I want is to be left alone" indicates a need for freedom and space, but the later lines "Gonna watch you fake it now" and "Will I freak can I calm down" suggest an inner conflict and vulnerability.


The second verse introduces images of physical and emotional pain, with the lines "Cannot swallow blue found vow/More than that my sleep is wild/All I need is suffering bones/Breathe in sorrow" suggesting a sense of entrapment and desperation. The repetition of "Gonna watch you fake it now/Will I freak can I calm down/And I take it all at a loss/Breathe in sorrow" further reinforces these feelings of insecurity and helplessness. However, the final lines of the song offer a glimmer of hope, with the singer expressing a desire to find peace amidst the "sorrow" and to feel proud once again.


Overall, "Left Alone" offers a poignant portrayal of the complexities of human emotions and relationships. The song's haunting melody and Chet Faker's soulful vocals make it a memorable and powerful musical experience.

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

Left alone,

Cannot swallow blue found vow
More than that my sleep is wild

@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
