My Fault
Imagine Dragons Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I took a walk on a Saturday night
Fog in the air
Just to make my mind seem clear
Where do I go from here?
I see my breath pushing steam through the air
Shaking hands run through my hair
My fears, where do I go from here?
Is it my fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other
My fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other

Walking down to the waters edge
Asking why I'm here instead of home
Now I stand alone
I stop to stare at the ocean side
I'm breathing in just to feel it's side
With his
Like you were here with me

Is it my fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other
My fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other

Oh it's on the wall, it's loud
It's in the brightest light
It's when the world is moving
Oh it's in the faintest cry
It's in the lovers' eye
It's when I need you most
And don't you know

Is it my fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other
My fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other

Is it my fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other
My fault, is it my fault?




We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other

Line by Line Meaning

I took a walk on a Saturday night
I went out alone to clear my head


Fog in the air
There was fog and it was hazy


Just to make my mind seem clear
I wanted to clear my thoughts


Where do I go from here?
Feeling lost and looking for direction


I see my breath pushing steam through the air
Breathing out cold air because of the weather


Shaking hands run through my hair
Feeling anxious and nervous


My fears, where do I go from here?
Wondering how to overcome my fears and move on


Is it my fault, is it my fault?
Asking if it's my fault


We've been missing each other
Feeling a disconnect in a relationship


Walking down to the waters edge
Heading towards the water


Asking why I'm here instead of home
Wondering why I'm not at home


Now I stand alone
Feeling lonely and isolated


I stop to stare at the ocean side
Taking a moment to appreciate the ocean view


I'm breathing in just to feel it's side
Breathing in the sea air to feel its freshness


With his
Partner's absence is felt and missed


Like you were here with me
Wishing partner was there


Oh it's on the wall, it's loud
Feeling the pain and suffering loudly


It's in the brightest light
Pain is felt even in the happiest moments


It's when the world is moving
Feeling lost when everyone else seems to be moving forward


Oh it's in the faintest cry
The pain is felt even when expressed subtly


It's in the lovers' eye
Even the sight of lovers reminds of the missing partner


It's when I need you most
Feeling the absence the most when partner is needed


And don't you know
A plea to the partner to understand

Is it my fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other

Is it my fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other
My fault, is it my fault?
We've been missing each other
We've been missing each other



@VERZUL

CONTEXTO:

Esta canción habla sobre la sensación de sentirse lejos de Dios, luego de abandonar la religión. Comienza con el cantante pensando a la orilla del mar, ¿Estoy haciendo las cosas mal?
El cantante está cumpliendo su sueño, pero siente que se está perdiendo su fé.
¿Es mi culpa?, ¿Acaso habré tomado las decisiones correctas?
"Nos hemos estado perdiendo el uno al otro".
El cantante explica que además de sentirse solo, parece que ha perdido a Dios. Pero se da cuenta que siempre ha estado allí en otras formas.

"Está en la noche más cálida
Está en la luz más brillante
Es cuando el mundo se mueve
Oh, está en el llanto más débil
Está en los ojos de mi amada
Está cuando más lo necesito"
