Little Talks - Of Monsters and Men



The Experience:
Life throws curve balls. Things that seemed easy end up being very hard. People who were always there for you go missing, in spite of their own best intentions. But when life seems bent on tearing you apart, you need a friend to help you through...

Music Video:
Fantasy adventure as the band tries to bring an alien girl back to her people... and find that she has more help to offer than they do. That adds a great twist to the song: it's not just about weathering hard times. It's also about friendships that grow strong when you ignore your problems to help someone in need, only to discover that they have exactly what you  need.


My Take:
Tough times hurt. But they don't just tear us apart. They also bring us together. Don't give up on others just because someone gave up on you or moved on.

Ask Yourself:
Are you a true friend? Even when everyone else is "gone gone gone away?"


LYRICS:


Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

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

Some days I can't even trust myself
It's killing me to see you this way
'Cause though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore.

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over, and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young, and
full of life and full of love

Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear
'Cause though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore. Hey!

Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
Though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Hey!

You're gone gone gone away. I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn torn torn apart, there's nothing we can do
Just let me go, and meet again soon
Now wait wait wait for me, please hang around
I see you when I fall asleep. Hey!

Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
Though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say. Hey!
The screams all sound the same. Hey!
Though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary, this
ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
