Instant Crush - Daft Punk ft. Julian Casablancas




Experience: Every love comes to an end. Love is still worth the suffering we go through when it's over. But we want more. We want forever...

Music Video: Two dolls fall in love as they stare at each from either side of a room in the wax museum... until he gets sent back to storage.

Meaning of Instant Crush: Julian Casablancas adds very effective - and very human - sadness to Daft Punk's EDM. At least in this life, happiness doesn't always last very long. It's here and gone. So enjoy it while it lasts... Even the best of loves - like the two wax dolls in the music video - can meet tragic ends. And really, every end is tragic. Is that all there is? Shouldn't love be able to last forever?

Ask Yourself: Are you committed to loving until the very end?


LYRICS:

I didn't want to be the one to forget
I thought of everything I'd never regret
A little time with you is all that I get
That's all we need because it’s all we can take

One thing I never see the same when your 'round
I don't believe in him - his lips on the ground
I wanna take you to that place in the "Roche"
But no one gives us any time anymore

He ask me once if I'd look in on his dog
You made an offer for it then you ran off
I got this picture of us kids in my head
And all I hear is the last thing that you said

'I listened to you problems
Now listen to mine'
I didn't want to anymore

And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door

Some more again

It didn't matter what they wanted to see
He thought he saw someone that looked just like me
The summer memory that just never dies
We worked too long and hard to give it no time
He sees right through me it's so easy with lies
Cracks in the road that I would try and disguise
He runs his scissors at the seem in the wall
He cannot break it down or else he would fall

1000 lonely stars, hiding in the cold
Take it, oh I don't wanna sing anymore

'I listened to you problems
Now listen to mine'
I didn't want to anymore

And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door

I don't understand, don't get upset. I'm not with you...
We're swimming around, it's all I do,
When I'm with you

And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door
