Splendid
Really Slow Motion Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Here we are
Face to face
Waiting for the last embrace
Eye to eye
Skin on skin
As the nemesis begins
We are free...
Darkness won't kill me
Shelter in fantasy
Never surrender
Our love, so splendid
Now that darkness
Coats the light
And the worlds around collide
Still we stand
Our souls entwined
Disposed to stand the test of time
We are free...
Darkness won't kill me
Shelter in fantasy




Never surrender
Our love, so splendid

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Really Slow Motion's song Splendid seem to describe a moment of intense intimacy and potential danger between two people who are standing strong together. The first few lines bring to mind the final moments before a fight or some sort of battle - the "last embrace" might suggest that these two people are prepared to face any danger together, but there is a sense of foreboding in the air, since they are waiting for something uncertain to happen. As the song progresses, it seems that the "nemesis," or enemy, has arrived, and darkness has descended. The line "Darkness won't kill me" suggests that the singer knows that they will come out alive on the other side of this conflict, and that they are seeking refuge and solace in their own fantasies and love for each other.
