Boom Clap - Charli XCX



The Experience: In the bounciest of all the songs in The Fault In Our Stars' star-studded songtrack, Charli XCX brings us Boom Clap, about the flashing that love feels like.  

Official Video: Charli dances around the streets and bridges of Amsterdam, while clips of the love story in The Fault In Our Stars phase back and forth. Laser lighting and edited-in stars show up the love-flashes the lyrics call Boom Clap.

The meaning of Charli XCX Boom Clap is what love feels like: explosions, stars, and not even making sense all the time. Love makes your heartbeat sound "Boom! Clap!" not just "thud-thud." Love makes stars spin around your head, crazy things become the norm. (Like the line "sunbathing under the moon.")
Why is love so intense, so real it's almost unreal? I believe it's because love's power is meant to make me go beyond myself. (Charli would say "You make me lose my shadow") Love's power makes me live for someone else. "You are the light and I will follow."

Ask yourself: Is my love still intense... intense enough to make me live for someone else? (Or do I want the Boom Clap emotional fireworks, but not that kind of commitment?)


LYRICS:
Boom Boom Boom Clap

You're picture perfect blue
Sunbathing on the moon
Stars shining as your bones illuminate
First kiss just like a drug
Under your influence
You take me over you're the magic in my veins
This must be love

Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now
Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now

No silver or no gold
Could dress me up so good
You're the glitter in the darkness of my world
Just tell me what to do
I'll fall right into you
Going under cast a spell just say the word
I feel your love

Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now
Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now

You are the light and I will follow
You let me lose my shadow
You are the sun the glowing halo
And you keep burning me up with all of your love

Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now
Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now
Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now
Boom Clap
The sound of my heart
The beat goes on and on and on and on and
Boom Clap
You make me feel good
Come on to me come on to me now
