Heartbeat - Carrie Underwood


The Experience: Tonight I wanna drive so far we'll only find static on the radio... you dream of being alone with the person you love. You dream of intimacy: a relationship where you know each other completely, trust each other completely, and share everything. But who can actually provide that? Is it just a dream...



Music Video: Carrie Underwood sings about intimacy, but even though it's a beautiful starry moonlit night, she's alone. That intimacy is still a dream. Totally understanding each other, and sharing everything, is a dream that for some people never becomes reality. The video ends with the sunrise: the reality check of everyday ordinary love. Only the strongest dreamers can make it happen there. 

The Meaning of Heartbeat: You can be together alone in a firefly glow without a key experience of true love: intimacy. When you say everything without making a sound, and when you're alone and close even in a downtown crowd. That type of deep love only happens when both of you drive so far away from personal plans, loves and desires that you'll only find static on the radio. Everything that you don't share is quiet, because there's nothing you don't share.


Ask yourself: What don't you know about the people you love? What don't you share with them?

Album: Storyteller

LYRICS:

I love it when we're at a party in a downtown crowd
But I can hear you call me baby with the music up loud
Red wine, good times, no I don't mind being with everyone else
And then there's nights like tonight that I, I want you to myself

And tonight I wanna drive so far we'll only find static on the radio
And we can't see those city lights and I love the way you look in a firefly glow
Saying everything without making a sound, a cricket choir in the background, underneath a harvest moon
Standing on your shoes in my bare feet, dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Oh woah, and we're dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat

And I wanna feel it like a kick drum, beating faster in your chest
I wanna feel you holding onto me and make me hold my breath
You pull me closer, my head on your shoulder, baby we won't beat the song
We'll make a fallen star wish, one more slow kiss, what are we waiting on?

And tonight I wanna drive so far we'll only find static on the radio
And we can't see those city lights and I love the way you look in a firefly glow
Saying everything without making a sound, a cricket choir in the background, underneath a harvest moon
Standing on your shoes in my bare feet, dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat
Yeah we're dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat

I wanna feel it like a kick drum, beating faster in your chest

And tonight I wanna drive so far we'll only find static on the radio
And we can't see those city lights and I love the way you look in a firefly glow
Saying everything without making a sound
With a river rolling in the background underneath the harvest moon
Standing on your shoes in my bare feet, dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat
And we're dancing to the rhythm of your heartbeat
