Glorious - Foxes




Meaning: Something is wrong and the teardrops are falling... Don't give it up, don't give it up, it's glorious. Foxes is right to talk about sacrifice, tears, and glory in the same breath - she's singing about love...

Music Video: Still waiting...

Meaning of Glorious: Foxes' vocals and 3 different accompanying beats take Glorious through three distinct movements you have to suffer through if you want true love. Verse one is the pain and tears of separation, of being left a lone - when I drown my eyes in the river flowing, you said you'll stay just a little more. Verse 2 shows the love and hope that still survive in Foxes dreams - when I close my eyes. Finally, Glorious ends with simple facts - along with initially stripped down, almost recited lyrics: the only real recipe for true love is self-giving. I give it everything, I'll give it everything now - even when something is wrong, when love seems gone.

Ask Yourself: Is your love glorious?


LYRICS:

Hollow ground and I keep on falling
Breathing in but it's not enough
When I drown my eyes in the river flowing 
You said you'll stay just a little more 

'Cause the fate is untold
I still hear it calling 
But something is wrong 
The teardrops are falling 
Just before they hit the ground 
Oh when I hear you say 
Oh when I hear you say 

Don't give it up, don't give it up, it's glorious
Don't give it up, don't give it up, it's glorious
No, I can't help it, no, I can't help it 
Don't wanna stay or run away 
No, I can't help it, no, I can't help it 

I close my eyes and I feel your heartbeat 
A deep blue sea rushes over me 
When the thunder cracks, I feel the warmth around me 
'Cause I found a prize I don't even hold 

'Cause the fate is untold 
I still hear it calling
But something is wrong 
The teardrops are falling 
Just before they hit the ground 
Oh when I hear you say 
Oh when I hear you say 

Don't give it up, don't give it up, it's glorious 
Don't give it up, don't give it up, it's glorious 
No, I can't help it, no, I can't help it 
Don't wanna stay or run away
No, I can't help it, no, I can't help it 

When the time is right, when there's no way out 
And I am losing something I ain't got
When the love is gone and I'm all alone
I give it everything, I'll give it everything now
When the time is right, when there's no way out 
I give it everything, I'll give it everything now

When the time is right, when there's no way out 
And I am losing something I ain't got
When the love is gone and I'm all alone 
I give it everything, I'll give it everything now
When the time is right, when there's no way out 
I give it everything, I'll give it everything now
