Fire Fade
Tove Lo Lyrics


Where did you go?
What?
I'm lost
I don't know, I don't know where I am
I don't know

Final Dictvm

Don't Talk About It
Golden tables, broken mirrors, naked girls around
Young and scared of love affairs so keep your conscience down
The world is beautiful, believe it with another line
Keep it up, if you're lucky enough
You know you're winnin' at life

Piles of paper gonna make 'em roll around in it
Watch it dripping from her lips
And wash your sins with it
Know it's hazy, but amazing
Yeah, you like that shit
Keep it up, if you're lucky enough
You know you're winnin' at life

Safe with me
Move so free
Silently

Don't talk about it
Sweep it under the rug like we do, do
Don't talk about it
If you're sitting with us, then you're in too
We don't talk about it
Your medallion's blindin' your mind too

Don't talk about it
Sweep it under the rug like we do, do
Don't talk about it
If you're sitting with us, then you're in too
We don't talk about it
Your medallion's blindin' your mind too
Know you're loving the highs
You get in-between the lines of a life you don't need
(x2)

We can take perfect pictures
We can take perfect pictures all night
We can take perfect pictures
You better keep a straight face 'fore the camera flashes
But you're fucked

Imaginary Friend
People said you're not a superstar
Can't jump that far
You know better
Got my armor on with super glue
Come power through
Yeah, whatever

Crushing my heart, tear me apart
Hate on this world 'cause reality sucks
Feeling their doubt, shut them all out
Crushing my heart, tear me apart
Hate on this world 'cause reality sucks
Feeling their doubt, shut them all out
'Cause I need you

Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Keeping me dreaming
Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)
Keeping me dreaming
(Don't you know I)
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)

Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Keeping me dreaming
Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)
Keeping me dreaming
(Don't you know I)
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)

Breaking bones to feel like I'm alive
How kids get high
Need to feel it

Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Keeping me dreaming
Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)
Keeping me dreaming
(Don't you know I)
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)

Crushing my heart, tear me apart
Hate on this world 'cause reality sucks
Crushing my heart, tear me apart
Feeling their doubt, shut them all out
Over, over again

(Don't you know I)
Keeping me dreaming
(Don't you know I)
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)
Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Keeping me dreaming
Imaginary friend, stay with me 'til the end now
Over, over again
(Don't you know I)

I don't know, I guess it's kinda like a voice in my heart
Reminding me that there's nothing to fear in the things I'm afraid of

Keep It Simple
I ain't ready, I ain't ready
I ain't ready, I ain't ready
I ain't ready, I ain't ready
I ain't ready, I ain't ready
I ain't ready, I ain't ready
I ain't ready, I ain't ready

I go to bed with you, but dream about him
You think I want to? No, I hate that he wins
How to forget how fucking broken I've been
But I'm healing, I'm healing, I'm healing

Let me keep it simple
So I don't have to face ya
Let it be just my call
'Cause I ain't ready for ya
(I ain't ready, I ain't ready)
Let me keep it simple
So I don't have to face ya
Let it be just my call
'Cause I ain't ready for ya
(I ain't ready, I ain't ready)

Physical to trick your heart
You are moving on
Physical to feel okay
That's what people say
Physical I better try
So this ain't goodbye, ay, ay, oh!

Physical to trick your heart
You are moving on (I ain't ready)
Physical to feel okay
That's what people say (I ain't ready)
Physical I better try
So this ain't goodbye, ay
(No, no! Let me keep it simple)

Let me keep it simple
So I don't have to face ya
Let it be just my call
'Cause I ain't ready for ya

Flashes
(What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
When I fuck things up
When i fuck things up
In front of camera flashes
What about you?
When all built up,
When all built up with sweat blood tears just crashes
What about you?
What about you?
All of these flashes)

"Money is a problem"
You say in a way like I'm to blame
I don't really need them
All I want is for us to stay the same
What about you?

People come, I push them away
People talk, I know what they say
People come, I push them away
People talk, I know what they say
What about you?

When I fuck things up
When I fuck things up in front of camera flashes
What about you?
When all I built up
When all I built up with sweat, blood, tears just crashes
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?

Yeah, oh, what about you?
Oh, yeah, nah, when I fuck things up, yeah
Oh, yeah, fuck things up, what about you?
Oh, what about you (fuck things up)

(When I fuck things up)
Fuck things up
Coming over me
When I fuck things up
In front of camera flashes
(All of these flashes)
What about you?
When all I built up, with sweat, blood, tears just crashes
What about you?
Fuck things up, yeah

Wtf Love Is
(Living up to the best and the worst of your dreams
All the cards with all the love clichés
I wouldn't have it other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then Wtf do you think love is
All the cards with all the love clichés
I wouldn't have it other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then Wtf do you think love is)


I got fire eyes, glitter in my tear lines
And I'm coming down, ready for some new sounds
And I'm holding up all that I can think of
But, where are you?
Where are you? (x2)

Oh, lonely babe, stranded on the dance floor
Look for me, I know that I'm a handful
But you get me, know what you signed up for
Live up to the best and the worst of your dreams

All the cards with all the love cliches
I wouldn't have it any other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then what the fuck do you think love is?
All the cards with all the love cliches
I wouldn't have it any other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then what the fuck do you think love is?

I can feel the lights tingling from the sunrise
And I see the signs clinging to our last nights
Thinking you and I, we are all the same kind
So where are you
Where are you?

Oh, lonely babe, stranded on the dance floor
Look for me, I know that I'm a handful
But you get me, know what you signed up for
Live up to the best and the worst of your dreams

All the cards with all the love cliches
I wouldn't have it any other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then what the fuck do you think love is?
All the cards with all the love cliches
I wouldn't have it any other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then what the fuck do you think love is?

With a hand like this I'm folding
All you need, yeah, I'll be holding
(What the fuck do you think love is?)
With a hand like this I'm folding
All you need, yeah, I'll be holding
(What the fuck do you think love is?)

Where are you?
Lonely babe
(Can't focus)
Look for me
(I lost you)
You get me
(What you wanted)
Live up to the best
Live up to the best and the worst of your dreams

All the cards with all the love cliches
I wouldn't have it any other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then what the fuck do you think love is?
All the cards with all the love cliches
I wouldn't have it any other way
Shake your head, you don't believe this
Then what the fuck do you think love is?

Cling my hand like this and fold it
All you need, yeah, I'll be holding
(What the fuck do you think love is?)
Cling my hand like this and fold it
All you need, yeah, I'll be holding
(What the fuck do you think love is?)

Yes we do

While not as colorful as Fairy Dust and lacks the multiple scenery, Fire Fade explores the stillness of loneliness and the boredom and numbness that follow the fading of emotions. She tells a story from her past about someone whom she loved and loved her back yet denied his feelings for her when word broke out, and eventually she was the one looked down upon. She also chases a haunting butterfly which likely represents her dead friend from Fairy Dust or perhaps a ghost of her past that she keeps coming back to no matter how much she likes to think that she moved on. She lets out a loud scream which perfectly represents the struggle and the rage that follows one's disappointment or how it feels when you feel like the whole world shut you down and you've only got yourself in your own little routine which you can neither get used to nor escape by doing something else as you're too emotionally wrecked to enjoy something else.

She walks on walls and sits on the ceiling and does the same things over and over, showing how she's torn between her reality and fantasy and the days go by and she feels like she's getting older (as she commented at the start, "I'm an old bitch", yet she keeps doing the same thing, being stuck in the same loop, even though she tells herself "why not?"). By the end, even though the fire has faded, she doesn't stop herself from having fun, doing what she wants. After she catches the butterfly, showering and washing away her sorrows, she has sex with the boys next door because she wants to move forward and do something new, even if it's random and soulless, and who knows? it could be just another fantasy in her head. I think it links well with the upcoming Light Beams short film, which I think represents the lights of hope that we come up through the darkness of life.

Tove Lo's artistry always stands out as one time she portrays sexuality, emotions and fun, and another, she portrays the disappointment in love and friendship, hitting rock bottom with drugs and heartbreak and trying to escape reality but eventually hitting the same spot and facing the darkness of where life got her. She remains the most remarkable new artist. Thank you, Tove Lo. Can't wait for Light Beams and Pitch Black.

Disappointed that everyone slept on this short film. Both mean so much to me personally and I think they are both so amazing
