Trampoline - SHAED

The Experience: Wait if I'm on fire how am I so deep in love? I just found love why does the dream have to end now?
The Vibe: Melancholy.
The Topic: Loss.
The Value: Love.
The Tension: When I dream of dying (losing everything) vs. I never feel so loved (right at the moment when I suddenly have something to lose).

Music video: White chromatic death fuels Trampoline's cold regretful vibe. It's the memory of something beautiful but dead. Like the statue Chelsea Lee moons over. Like the burning white rose. Like SHAED themselves, cold and shrouded in white like something already gone from this life.

The Meaning of Trampoline: Chelsea Lee hangs in the air at the top of her trampoline-fueled jump. She just found love - trip and I fall in. She always wanted it to happen. But she's at the pinnacle about to crash back down to earth. About to lose it all. That bittersweet experience of love and impending loss is the tension that fuels Trampoline's regret: Wait if I'm on fire how am I so deep in love? When I dream of dying I never feel so loved.

Ask yourself: Are life and love worth it if eventually I'll lose both?

Album: Melt - 2018

LYRICS:


I've been havin dreams
Jumpin on a trampoline
Flippin in the air
I never land just float there
As I'm looking up
Suddenly the sky erupts
Flames alight the trees
Spread to fallin leaves
Now they're right upon me

Wait if I'm on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so loved

I've been having dreams
Splashin in a summer stream
Trip and I fall in
I wanted it to happen
My body turns to ice
Crushin weight of paradise
Solid block of gold
Lying in the cold
I feel right at home

Wait if I'm on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so loved

Wait if I'm on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so loved

I never feel so loved

La la la la laa
La la la la laa lala
La la la la laa
La la la la laa laa

Wait if I'm on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so

Wait if I'm on fire
How am I so deep in love?
When I dream of dying
I never feel so loved
