Touch - Kloe



The Experience: All our troubles seem so far away. Said I like the bottle, got a ticker but it's hollow... The feeling of being in love is a wonder. But not every relationship fills that hollow hole in your heart...



Music video: Touch doesn't focus on the relationship itself. Instead, it flips through different parts of her life - girlfriends, bathroom mirror, parties, hangouts, sunrises - allowing us to see that even for Kloe a teenage fling is just one shallow part of a confusing time of life.

The Meaning of Touch: Kloe has stated that she wrote Touch after a relationship with an older man who "made me grow up a lot", and that "Touch is a love song, but it kind of takes the piss out of how much we, as teenagers, exaggerate and over-analyze every single thing about it." (interview here) That's exactly the feeling Touch transmits: a teenage relationship that is emotion and whirlwind, but that somehow rings false and hollow - got a ticker (heart) but it's hollow... I'm never going to be what you need. If you stay out of your head, and always keep your problems in a bottle, you might get stuck for life in a relationship that's not forever.

Ask yourself: How can you worry about your future when your feelings are so strong right now?

LYRICS:

I don't remember what happened
But you've got me dancing
And you light me up like I'm a stage
With a flick of a wrist and a shake of my hips
All our troubles seem so far away
Said I like the bottle
Got a ticker but it's hollow
And I'm never going to be what you need
You can show me everything
But you think I'm just 18, 18, 18, but baby, baby

There's soft sounds when we touch down
Get out of your head, come out
Soft sounds when we touch down
Get out of your head

If you want, I can swing it from the rooftops
One touch and I'm in love
I know it's not forever, but we can stay here together
One touch and I'm in love

I know you shouldn't comply
You should leave, I'm so shy
But it's boys like you who come and fade
What we're involved in, I'm lost in
And the colors combusted into tiny little dancing flames
Keep your problems in a bottle
Got enough of them to swallow
And you're never going to see 'til you're free
I could show you everything
But you think I'm just 18, 18, 18, but baby, baby

There's soft sounds when we touch down
Get out of your head, come out
Soft sounds when we touch down
Get out of your head

If you want, I can swing it from the rooftops
One touch and I'm in love
I know it's not forever, but we can stay here together
One touch and I'm in love

One touch and I'm in love
One touch and I'm in love
One touch and I'm in love
One touch and I'm in love
One touch and I'm

If you want, I can swing it from the rooftops
One touch and I'm in love
I know it's not forever, but we can stay here together
One touch and I'm in love
