Spectrum
Zedd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Breathing you in when I want you out
Finding our truth in a hope of doubt
Lying inside our quiet drama

Wearing your heart like a stolen dream
Opening skies with your broken keys
No one can blind us any longer
We'll run where lights won't chase us
Hide where love can save us
I will never let you go

We'll run where lights won't chase us
Hide where love can save us
I will never let you go

Breathing you in when I want you out
Finding our truth in a hope of doubt
Lying inside our quiet drama

Breathing you in when I want you out
Finding our truth in a hope of doubt
Lying inside our quiet drama

Wearing your heart like a stolen dream
Opening skies with your broken keys
No one can blind us any longer

We'll run where lights won't chase us
Hide where love can save us
I will never let you go

We'll run where lights won't chase us
Hide where love can save us
I will never let you go

We'll run where lights won't chase us
Hide where love can save us
I will never let you go

Breathing you in when I want you out




Finding our truth in a hope of doubt
Lying inside our quiet drama

Overall Meaning

At its core, "Spectrum" is a song about holding on tightly to someone you love despite the obstacles and challenges that may come your way. The first verse sets up the idea of two people who seem to be pulling in different directions, with the singer "breathing... in when I want you out." Despite this tension, however, they are able to find their truth in the midst of doubt, suggesting that their love is strong enough to overcome any uncertainties. The second verse builds on this idea, with the singer likening their lover's heart to a "stolen dream" and a set of "broken keys" that can now open up the world to them.


The chorus serves as a sort of rallying cry for this couple, with the singer promising to accompany their lover wherever they need to go in order to stay safe and happy. The repeated line "I will never let you go" reinforces the idea of unwavering commitment, suggesting that these two people have a bond that is unbreakable.


Overall, "Spectrum" can be seen as a declaration of love that is both passionate and realistic. It acknowledges that there will be times of doubt and tension, but ultimately believes that true love can triumph over any obstacle.
