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 I sleep; it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

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 all be over and buried without past
We used to play outside when we were young, and full of life and full of love

Some days, I feel like I'm wrong when I am 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!
Though the truth may vary, this ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

You're gone, gone gone away; I watched you disappear
All that's left is a 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!

Though the truth may vary, this ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary, this ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary, this ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary, this ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

I kind of see it as a dysfunctional family- they know that "the truth may vary but this ship will carry (their) bodies safe to shore." And the fact that "they used to play out side when they were young..." Then their family was torn apart, but they know eventually they'll be together again. Just a thought, maybe?

I think this song is about two people's memories of each other and they talk to each other cheering the other on! Even though the other is dead... I think it's a cheerful happy-go-lucky type of song even though the lyrics are so sad...

I think the awesome song is about someone who died and the person in the song sees them as a ghost or in their dreams. truly amazing song These guys are very talented and I just love their Icelandic accents.They are kind of like Mumford and Sons because you can hear their accents. - a shy frog

I agree that it's about Alzheimers or dimentia. The mans PoV is one of love and longing for his partners mind to return and for her to hang on. She wants to let go.

To me it seems like its about a couple who are struggling with their relationship. They do and dont want to break up.

This song is about a couple where the woman has dementia or Alzheimers or some kind of mental degression and you can see her struggling within herself and her husband being there for her
