Youngblood - 5 Seconds Of Summer




The Experience: You push and you push and I'm pulling away, pulling away from you I give and I give and I give and you take... A relationship dies when both of you take without either of you wanting to give... 


Music video: An elderly couple thank each other - arigato - and then take a pill that gives them 24 hours of their previous young life. They enjoy it immensely and die in each others' arm. The comparison between their easy elderly friendship and the rough and tumble young life in which they definitely aren't centered on each other raises the question: which is actually worth more? 

The Meaningt of Youngblood: Love means giving. Not giving in, but gifting yourselves to each other. That's what allows both of you to receive without ever having to take. The measure of a relationship isn't what you get out of it, it's what both of you put into it. When that mutual gift doesn't happen, when you don't actually want each in your life, neither of you will be more than a dead man walking, crawling, running away

Ask yourself: Have you ever received without taking?

Album: Youngblood (2018)

LYRICS:


Remember the words you told me, "love me till the day I die"
Surrender my everything 'cause you made me believe you're mine
Yeah, you used to call me baby, now you're calling me by name
Takes one to know one, yeah, you beat me at my own damn game

You push and you push and I'm pulling away, pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me out of your life
And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah you need it, all of the time, yeah ooh ooh ooh
Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me back in your life
So I'm just a dead man crawling tonight
'Cause I need it, yeah I need it, all of the time, yeah ooh ooh ooh

Lately our conversations end like it's the last goodbye
Then one of us gets too drunk and calls about a hundred times
So who you've been calling baby? Nobody could take my place
When you're looking at those strangers, hope to God you see my face

Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me out of your life
And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah you need it, all of the time, yeah ooh ooh ooh
Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me back in your life
So I'm just a dead man crawling tonight
'Cause I need it, yeah I need it, all of the time, yeah ooh ooh ooh

You push and you push and I'm pulling away, pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take
You're running around and I'm running away, running away from you
Mmm, from you

Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me out of your life
And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
But you need it, yeah you need it, all of the time, yeah ooh ooh ooh
Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me back in your life
So I'm just a dead man crawling tonight
'Cause I need it, yeah I need it, all of the time, yeah ooh ooh ooh

You push and you push and I'm pulling away, pulling away from you
I give and I give and I give and you take, give and you take

Youngblood
Say you want me, say you want me out of your life
And I'm just a dead man walking tonight
