Not Today - Imagine Dragons




The Experience: It's gotta get easier and easier somehow. But not today... Why is loving someone so hard?



Music video: Not Today is one of the tracks from the movie Me Before You. Imagine Dragons managed to sync their message almost perfectly to the story of a woman falling in love with a quadriplegic - love can be true, but it's never easy. 

The Meaning of Not Today: Part of loving is breaking each other's hearts. Because neither of you is perfect, love is hard work. We dream of it being easier somehow. But not today - today love is always work. And that is what makes love real - only true love is strong enough to work at loving, all day, every day.

Ask yourself: Where do you find the strength to keep loving?

Soundtrack: Me Before You (2016)

LYRICS:

There she goes in front of me
Take my life and set me free again
We'll make a memory out of it
Holy road is at my back
Don't look on, take me back again
We'll make a memory out of it

We finally fall apart and we break each other's hearts
If we wanna live young love we better start today

It's gotta get easier, oh easier somehow
Cause I'm falling, I'm falling
Oh easier and easier somehow
Oh I'm calling, I'm calling
And it isn't over unless it is over
I don't wanna wait for that
It's gotta get easier and easier somehow
But not today
Not today

There she goes in front of me
Take my life, set me free again
We'll make a memory out of it
Holy road was at my back
Don't look on, take me back again
We'll make a memory out of it

We finally fall apart and we break each other's hearts
If we wanna live young love we better start today

It's gotta get easier, oh easier somehow
Cause I'm falling, I'm falling
Oh easier and easier somehow
Oh I'm calling, I'm calling
And it isn't over unless it is over
I don't wanna wait for that
It's gotta get easier and easier

So come with me
You'll come with me
So come with me
You'll come with me
Not today
Not today
Not today
Not today

It's gotta get easier and easier somehow
Cause I'm falling, I'm falling
And easier and easier somehow
Oh I'm calling and calling
And it isn't over unless it is over
I don't wanna wait for that
It's gotta get easier and easier somehow
It's gotta get easier and easier somehow
Not today
Not today
Not today
Not today
Not today
