Roses - The Chainsmokers ft. Rozes



The Experience: Say you'll never let me go... Will he ever decide? Love can't happen until both of you have decided to commit. It's frustrating when they can't make up their mind...





Music video: The lyric video follows the boy she loves around the oceanside as he snorkels and dives with a friend. Meanwhile, she is alone, waiting on the beach. That separation highlights the decision that has to be made: what does he value more? Her or his freedom? Commitment means deciding.

The music video shows what happens if that decision hasn't been made. Even if they're happy together, Roses is all about goodbyes - about her anxiety every time that he leaves. She's not sure that he'll come back. It doesn't matter if he left on a plane or by car. She's always worried. And the video doesn't tell if that's his fault, or just her struggling with trust.

The Meaning of Roses: Say you'll never let me go... You could be great for one another - deep in my bones I can feel you. But in the end it comes down to a decision - you both have to decide to love one another. the feelings are there, but without commitment there's no real love. That's a great message, with just one drawback: if drugs - smoke a little weed on the couch in the back room - are one of the things that fuel your love, that makes the truth of your feelings just a little suspect. 

Ask yourself: Are you ready to decide?

LYRICS:

Take it slow, but it's not typical
He already knows that my love is fire
His heart was a stone, but then his hands roamed
I turned him to gold and took him higher

Oh, I'll be your daydream, I'll be your favorite things
We could be beautiful
Get drunk on the good life, I'll take you to paradise
Say you'll never let me go

Deep in my bones, I can feel you
Take me back to a time only we knew hideaway
We could waste the night with an old film
Smoke a little weed on the couch in the back room
Hideaway
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go

Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go

Deep in my bones, I can feel you
Take me back to a time only we knew
Hideaway
We could waste the night with an old film
Smoke a little weed on the couch in the back room
Hideaway
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go

Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Ahh, ahh, ahh
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go
Say you'll never let me go
