Holding Onto Heaven - Foxes


The Experience: I need you so bad, when I breathe, it's only you. But you've never been true to me, I hate what you've done. My heart hates you and loves you at the same time. You leave me without answers, full of contradictions... my only hope is Holding Onto Heaven.
Official Video: A lonely Foxes toys with a tinkling music box. While she wanders through a dining room where everyone's got someone except her, the camera opens to a 'heaven' above, where a reckless Foxes initiates dances, love and excitement. Spinning back down, lonely Foxes wishes she could make her dreams come true. 


The Meaning of Foxes' Holding Onto Heaven is the pain of loving someone who is so good at pretending. Foxes wants to reach out to who he really is, to the side to you that isn't running, but I don't know where it is. He tries to pretend their love wasn't for real. Foxes sings back that she still loves and needs him: 'I see the guilt in your eyes, I hate what you've done, what you've made me become.' Will he finally believe in true love? Will she continue to hope and holding onto heaven 

Ask Yourself: Have I got so good at pretending? Do the people who care about me know my true side... or do they say 'I don't know where it is'...? 


LYRICS:
Starless sky
We've got so good at pretending
There's a side
A side to you that isn't running
But I don't know where it is
That you've been hiding
But I need you tonight
But I need you tonight

Cause I'm holding onto heaven
Lights fade but I won't let them
Oh I'm holding onto heaven
When I breath and it's only you

All these years
I've been chasing down the answers
I was here
Always tracing out your shadows
But I need you tonight

Cause I'm holding onto heaven
Lights fade but I won't let them
Oh I'm holding onto heaven
When I breathe and it's only you

I can't take it
Cause you think nobody sees what you doing to me
I'm telling you guilt is in your eyes
I hate what you've done
What you've made me become
No sleep, face the night

Oh I'm holding on

Lights fade but I won't let them
Cause I'm holding onto heaven
When I breathe and it's only you

Cause I'm holding onto heaven
Lights fade but I won't let them

Cause I'm holding
Oh I'm holding onto heaven
