Of Monsters And Men – Little Talks lyrics

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as you sleep, it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes
And some days I can't even trust myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Hey!
Hey!

There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young and full of life and full of love
Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore
Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!
And though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Hey!

You're gone, gone, gone away
I watched you disappear
All that's left is the ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart
There's nothing we can do
Just let me go, we'll meet again soon
Now wait, wait, wait for me
Please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep
Hey!

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!
And though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore x2

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore x2

    I think this song is about a soldier who probably faced ptsd and was still physical present after war but mentally he was gone. She misses the old him and thinks he can get better but he won't. She misses their talks and how they were when they were young. Now its all screams and she's living a nightmare. She only gets relief from her abusive husband when she is sleeping and remembers the old him. She hopes and knows that eventually he will recover and turn back to himself again or somewhat of himself. I sing this song all the time with my friend David in front of big crowds and I cry every time I hear or sing it! Whether I'm alone or on stage in front of a bunch of people! Its a story of hope and that's what this song means to me :)
