With lyrical insight from RM the song is of the journey of a couple whose relationship ends and are now overwhelmed by the loneliness.
Our home is here, it’s us
We’ve been through worse
This can’t be the end of us
So many things left un-doneDon’t- eAeon (feat. RM)
The lyrics are represented by the music video featuring a couple. Many scenes show the couple engaged in everyday activity and how they seem inseparable. But in time things transition to a point where they ae tired and let go. Letting go drives them to feel lonelier than ever and the two are worried if they will be forgotten eventually like how they fade from each other’s memories in the music video.
RM’s verses are the highlight of the song as it holds a lot of meaning and drives the whole song.
What color are waves
White as snow when they break
Did you survive the drift ok
Still as a pebble, could you stay
Turn on the moon
In my small chimney, could you stayDon’t- eAeon (feat. RM)
The first few lines refer to how thundering waves hit the shore only to disperse as tiny bubbles. These waves are metaphorically used to express the growth and fall of a relationship. The waves are strong enough to erode a rock into mere pebbles. These pebbles are memories that the two share and is all that’s left now.
Don’t take away the name only you know
I don’t need magic
I hate any wildflowers
Don’t be new
Just be here
Stay here, don’t goDon’t-eAeon (feat. RM)
Probably everyone’s favorite phase of a relationship is when everything feels perfect and the two are elated. “the butterflies in the stomach” phase which is referred to as magic in this case eventually disappears. The lyrics represent how desperate they have become and to overcome the loneliness they hope to be together again even if the “magic” was missing.
