Out of Mind - Tove Lo


www.lastfm.deby Ryan Carlin 

The Experience: Out of Mind is a cry of pain in the darkness that remains after we give ourselves away only to find ourselves abandoned by someone who really just saw us as a toy for his own amusement.



Music video: The video begins with a sleepless Tove Lo in bed with a soundly sleeping man singing to us about how she knows he will be gone by morning. What is most disturbing about this is that he is able to sleep soundly despite this fact while she lies awake and suffering his betrayal. She tries to escape her demons in a artistically powerful scene in which she slices open her head and forces out the memories of this and other men who have treated her like an object of pleasure. Tove Lo then begins a walk across town pursued by the demons which reminds us that even as she goes back to her normal routine the memories of such a betrayal will never fully disappear. Her walk across town then turns into a full out flight through a forest in an attempt to escape the demons who eventually surround her in a field and force their way back into her mind as she wakes up in bed beside the same soundly sleeping man.


The Meaning: In Out of Mind Tove Lo tells the all too common story of a commitment free relationship that leaves her alone after she has given her partner the most precious gift she has to offer, her very self. Sadly he does not seem to care and tries to make her believe she will be able to move on just like him. Tove Lo is not fooled by this and the refrain shows us the agony that such a betrayal leaves behind since deep down she knows she has been treated like a toy for this man's entertainment and will never be able to simply move on as if it had never happened.


Ask yourself: Am I using the people in my life that I claim to love or am I in it for the long term in order to give them the best of myself? Can I say the same of the people in my life who claim to love me?


LYRICS:

Lovers
Into friends
Move on
To strangers

Let go
No more us
Move on
I'm trying

Denying
Saying 'Time will heal'
Keep lying
To make me feel
I'm OK
So you believe
I'll forget you
Seriously?

Realy?
Are you kidding me?

You're out of your
You're out of your
You're out of your mind
To think that I
You're out of your
You're out of your
You're out of your mind
To think that I
To think at I could could keep you
Out of mind.

Happy
Used to be
Together
You and me

Things die
Drift apart
Wait for
A new start

Denying
Think you'll fade away
Keep lying
I can hear you say
You're in touch with reality
Baby, I say
Are you kidding me?

You're out of your
You're out of your
You're out of your mind
To think that I
You're out of your
You're out of your
You're out of your mind
To think that I
To think at I could could keep you
Out of mind.

How can you say I'll be alright?
What makes you think that I'll be fine?
Baby you have to be completely out of your 
Your out of your mind
To think that I could keep you out of mind.

You're out of your
You're out of your
You're out of your 
You're out of your mind
To think that I
You're out of your
You're out of your
You're out of your mind
To think that I
To think at I could could keep you
Out of mind.

You're out of your mind
You're out of your mind
You're out of your mind

To think that I
To think that I
To think that I

To think at I could could keep you
Out of mind.
