Remedy - Alesso ft. Conor Maynard




The Experience: I didn't have no one to turn to yeah, I was circling the drain... When loneliness is a disease with a cure that's not for sale...

Music video: A lonely green martian looks for his lost companion. And hinging on the outcome of that search is the fuel cell (Alesso's music) they both need to make it back home. Represented by the moms at the diner and in the park, adults have their own lives and pay no attention. It's only the children who understand.

The Meaning of Remedy: A poignant look at loneliness. I believe that loneliness is my disease  and it seemed every door was closing on me and I didn't have no one to turn to. Loneliness so deep it's deadly - I was circling the drain. Then the joy at finding the cure - I didn't know that I was broken until I found my missing piece - tempered by the sobering realization that your survival depends on someone else. You have nothing. Nothing but time for them. But they have to say yes. And that makes it so much more wonderful when they do.

Ask yourself: Do you realize how fragile even the best of friendships are?

LYRICS:


O-o-o-o-o-oh
O-o-o-o-o-oh

I didn't know that I was broken
Until I found my missing piece
It seemed like every door was closing on me
And you were so far out of reach

Drunk on the night, you got lips like your wine
I got nothing but time for you
Feeling so high on that look in your eyes
I got nothing but time for you

(O-o-o-o-o-oh)
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe (o-o-o-o-o-oh)
That loneliness is my disease (o-o-o-o-o-oh)
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe (o-o-o-o-o-oh)

How to be okay again, ooh

Feeling so high on that look in your eyes
I got nothing but time for you, ooh

(O-o-o-o-o-oh)
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe (o-o-o-o-o-oh)
