Daughter _ Youth

I recently came across this song by “Daughter” and I want to share it with all of you.

Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
Destroy the middle, it’s a waste of time.
From the perfect start to the finish line.

And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones.
‘Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
the lovers that went wrong.

We are the reckless,
we are the wild youth
chasing visions of our futures
one day we’ll reveal the truth
that one will die before he gets there.

And if you’re still bleeding, you’re the lucky ones.
‘Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.
We’re setting fire to our insides for fun.
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home,
It was a flood that wrecked this…

…and you caused it… (x3)

Well I’ve lost it all, I’m just a silouhette,
A lifeless face that you’ll soon forget,
My eyes are damp from the words you left,
ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.
ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one,
’cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
to distract our hearts from ever missing them.
but I’m forever missing him.

and you caused it (x3)

Daughter explores youth as a wasted commodity and we are taking advantage of it. It’s been wasted by our selfish and self-destructive acts. Complimented by the haunting sounds of “Youth”, the song allows listeners to reflect on their life.

 “And if you’re still breathing, you’re the lucky ones”, it’s such a powerful statement on how we are lucky to have survived because the unlucky ones would probably be dead.

Teenage depression is a hurdle that we all must overcome because the constant fear, sadness and emptiness that fills us up will eventually drain away. Yet, it leaves residual memories of what caused the heartbreaks before ‘ringing in [your] head’.

You might cross reference it to Florence Welch but this is mostly haunting is the most  speculative way.

ENJOY THE SONG! Because this is definitely going into my Music Track List.
