Another cover by Astrid and his brother, this time with Aurora at the keyboard. The original song is by Calvin Harris.

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

I need your love

I take a deep breath every time I pass your door
I know you're there but I can't see you anymore
And that's the reason
You're in the dark
I've been a stranger ever since we fell apart
And I feel so helpless here
Watch, my eyes are filled with fear
Tell me do you feel the same
Hold me in your arms again

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

I need your love

Now I'm dreaming, will I ever find you now?
I walk in circles but I'll never figure out
What I mean to you, do I belong?
I try to fight this but I know I'm not that strong
And I feel so helpless here
Watch my eyes are filled with fear
Tell me do you feel the same
Hold me in your arms again

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

I need your love

All the years
All the times
You have never been to blame
And now my eyes are open
And now my heart is closing
And all the tears
All the lies
All the waste
I've been trying to make a change
And now my eyes are open

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free

HIGH= Very happy, euphoric.

COME ALIVE= Alive is when you are living, not dead. To come alive is when you lived without energy, almost like if you are dead, and then you become full of energy and happy.

BREATH /breθ/= The air you take in or out of your body. To take a breath is to breathe, to get air inside your body through your mouth or nose. A deep breath is a big amount of air, like when you are experiencing a strong emotion or when you are nervous and decide to do something. In this case, she takes a deep breath when she decides not to knock on his door.

ANYMORE= Never again.

YOU'RE IN THE DARK= You don't know (in this case, you don't know I still love you).

FELL APART= Be destroyed. In this case, it refers to their relationship.

HELPLESS= Without help.

WALK IN CIRCLES= If you walk in circles you are disoriented and after walking for a long time, you come back to the same place, so you are not advancing, you're not going anywhere. Here, it is a metaphor meaning that she is doing things but with no results because she always ends up in the same situation.

FIGURE OUT= Know, discover, understand.

DO I BELONG?= Is there a place for me where I should be?

THAT STRONG= So strong.

BLAME= Fault. If you are to blame, it is your fault.

MY EYES ARE OPEN= I can see = I understand.

MY HEART /hɑ:*t/ IS CLOSING= I can't feel love.

THE WASTE= Rubbish, garbage, trash or useless things. In this case she refers to all the time, love, energy and devotion she put in their relationship, which is now useless, it was all a waste of time.

 

 

In the beginning she's telling us that she is so in love with this person, she needs him, he is the sun in her life, but their love is impossible.

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right

At first it looks like the problem is that she is too shy to tell him.

I take a deep breath every time I pass your door
I know you're there but I can't see you anymore
And that's the reason
You're in the dark

Then we find out they were together before.

I've been a stranger ever since we fell apart
And I feel so helpless here

It is only at the end that we guess their relationship ended because he did something terrible to her, probably cheated on her, and now she is beginning to realize he is not good for her. She still loves him, but she must move over and forget him... if only she were strong enough.

And now my eyes are open
And now my heart is closing
And all the tears
All the lies
All the waste
I've been trying to make a change

It is now when we understand that when she went past his door and took a deep breath, it was because she had to make an effort not to knock on his door to say hello and see him. And it is also now when we understand the meaning of her walking in circles: she is trying to stop loving him, move on, forget him, and she's doing everything she can, but she always ends up in the same place: she still loves him, though she knows she shouldn't.

Nevertheless, she says that her heart is closing, so little by little, time is working and she will finally forget him.
