Takeaway - The Chainsmokers, ILLENIUM ft. Lennon Stella

The Experience: I'll break your heart so you don't break mine... you push people away because you're convinced they can't love you.
The Vibe: Sadness. Fear.
The Topic: Fear of rejection.
The Value: Love.
The Tension: I'm gonna leave you (Ending the relationship because love is too risky) vs. Before love you and before I'm someone you leave behind (This is turning into love).

Music video: The Chainsmokers and ILLENIUM arrive at the Vessel in New York City by train, car and helicopter. They're looking for Lennon Stella. But as they climb, she descends the elevator and strolls to Drew Taggart's helicopter. They never meet.

The Meaning of Takeaway: You've been hurt. You believe you're unlovable. You think the only way to hold onto your dream of love is to never again put that dream to the test. Because if you love you'll only get hurt. So you leave before it happens - I'm gonna leave you before I'm someone you leave behind. That way it won't be broken again. And you'll never discover that you are lovable...

Ask yourself: Are you truly unlovable? Are you willing to let someone get close enough to prove you wrong?
