Rooftop - Zara Larsson



The ExperienceWe could be soulmates. We could be so great. We could be happy. One day... Your life is still open to possibilities, until you start making decisions...



Music video: Rooftop follows the lyrics to a fault, and achieves total unity between rythm, visuals and message: the key line we could be soulmates is always linked to Zara in her car, left with only the memory of the boy she met as her driver ferries her home in a posh sedan. The song is all lost opportunities and impossible loves.

The Meaning of Rooftop: Zara Larsson brings us a fond look at love, when love nothing more than a good feeling, and you're free to follow it up... or not. Sometime circumstances, or others' rules or expectations, represented by the police - the boys in blue - get in the way of your decisions. And even freedom itself only lets you decide. On its own it won't make you happy. Because being happy means making choices, and sticking to them. Being happy is about now. Now can't be a dream. Now has to be real. And unfortunately, you often live to regret how those choices played out.

Ask yourself: Are you so caught up with your possibilities that you forget to build your own future? Your own love? How do you factor other people's opinions and expectations into your own life?

LYRICS:

 We could be soulmates
We could be so great
We could be happy
One day
Some day
Or in a whole 'nother lifetime

It was the first time our love died
Sh-t was crazy
And the second time just blew my mind
Sh-t was crazy

Lately I don't know what I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got someone and baby so do you

It was the third of September
We were hanging up on the roof
It was that hot, hot night
We were having a barbecue

And I said hi
You said hi
Baby that's when I knew
Baby I just c-can't take my mind off you

It was a night to remember
We were hanging up on the roof
Someone got knocked out
And in came the boys in blue

And you said bye
I said bye
Some of that made the news
I just c-can't take my mind off you

(It was an emotion... another emotion)

And the rain came
Someone caught the flame
And it was crazy
And there was sirens and firemen
Sh-t was crazy
Baby rushing the stairs I see you go
It was the saddest thing that I will ever know

It was the third of September
We were hanging up on the roof
It was that hot, hot night
We were having a barbecue

And I said hi
You said hi
Baby that's when I knew
Baby I just c-can't take my mind off you


It was a night to remember
We were hanging up on the roof
Someone got knocked out
And in came the boys in blue

And you said bye
I said bye
Some of that made the news
I just, I just can't, can't take my mind off you

(It was an emotion... another emotion... first was an emotion)

We could be soulmates
We could be so great
We could be happy
One day
Some day

It was the third of September
We were hanging up on the roof
It was that hot, hot night
We were having a barbecue

And I said hi
You said hi
Baby that's when I knew
Baby I just c-can't take my mind off you


It was a night to remember
We were hanging up on the roof
Someone got knocked out
And in came the boys in blue

And you said bye
I said bye
Some of that made the news
I just c-can't take my mind off you

(It was an emotion... on the rooftop)
