Of Monsters and Men

Little Talks

Lyrics

playI don't like walking around this old and empty house
playSo hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
playThe stairs creak as you sleep, it's keeping me awake
playIt's the house telling you to close your eyes

playAnd some days I can't even dress myself
playIt's killing me to see you this way

playBecause though the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore

playThere's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
playWell tell her that I miss our little talks
playSoon it will be over
playAnd buried with our past
playWe used to play outside when we were young
playAnd full of life and full of love

playSome days I don't know if I am wrong or right
playYour mind is playing tricks on you my dear

playBecause though the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore

playDon't listen to a word I say
playThe screams all sound the same
playThough the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore

playYou're gone, gone, gone away
playI watched you'd disappear
playAll that's left is a ghost of you
playNow we're torn, torn, torn apart
playThere's nothing we can do
playJust let me go we'll meet again soon.

playNow wait, wait, wait for me
playPlease hang around
playI'll see you when I fall asleep

playDon't listen to a word I say
playThe screams all sound the same
playThough the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore

playDon't listen to a word I say
playThe screams all sound the same
playThough the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore

playThough the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore
playThough the truth may vary this
playShip will carry our bodies safe to shore

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

The song is about a relationship. It's about a couple and the husband passed away and it's from the conversation between the two of them. We don't know if she's going crazy or if someone's actually there. We've kind of been inspired by people that lived in my house. This old couple that lived there for 30 years. The woman passed away, so it was kind of different."
