Tiptoe - Imagine Dragons


www.last.fmby Simon Cleary 

The Experience: They don't see us. They don't look to see me  comeWe don't let 'em know we're coming. We'll climb higher secretly. Tiptoe, with your head down low. We'll reach the stars without them.  

Video: Still waiting. 


The Meaning of Imagine Dragons Tiptoe is about independence and friendship. The song sings about us (me, you) versus 'them' (society, expectations). Imagine Dragons tells us to ignore 'them' with lines like don't let 'em know we're coming, and they don't see me come. And it doesn't matter. We don't need them. They never seem to catch my eye but I never wonder why. I have greater plans: let my roots take flight, see me fly... But I need a true friend to fly. I need you. Nobody else can take me higher. 

Ask Yourself: Will I keep climbing higher, even when no-one's looking? 


LYRICS:
In the morning light let my roots take flight
Watch me fall above like a vicious dove
They don't see me come, who can blame them?
They never seem to catch my eye but I never wondered why

I won't fall asleep
I won't fall asleep

Hey yeah, don't let 'em know we're coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

From your slanted view see the morning dew
Sink into the soil, watch the water boil
They won't see me run, who can blame them?
They never look to see me fly, so I never have to lie

I won't fall asleep
I won't fall asleep

Hey yeah, don't let 'em know we're coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

Nobody else, nobody else
Nobody else can take me higher
Nobody else can take me higher
Nobody else can take me higher
Nobody else

Hey yeah, don't let 'em know we're coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

Hey yeah, don't let 'em know we're coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
