“A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other… Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.”

Carried Away - Passion Pit (Tiesto Remix)
Cause I’m sorry, sorry ‘bout that,
Sorry ‘bout things that I’ve said.
Always let it get to my head.
Trojans by Atlas Genius
It is titled “Trojans”, and no, not after the condoms, but after the Trojan Horse, a very important symbol during the Trojan War - which was the greatest war in Greek mythology and literature. Basically, the Greeks built a huge wooden horse to give to their enemies, the Trojans (from the city of Troy) as a peace offering. Little did the Trojans know that the Greeks had hidden a number of men inside the horse, whom later crept out, assisted the Greek army in entering the walls of Troy, and destroyed the city, ending the war.
What does the Trojan Horse have anything to do with this song?
After listening to this song several times, you will eventually understand the lyrics and grasp the meaning - especially if you can relate. I came across a stranger’s beautiful interpretation of the song, which I think, cannot be interpreted in any other perfect way.
“This song isn’t just about the breaking off of a love, it’s about the un-entangling of two lives intertwined. This guy created many memories with his love and now he’s trying to get away from them so he can move on, hence the “painting of the walls”. However as hard as he tries the there are still little things that he sees in his everyday life that remind him of her. Even though he’s now guarding the gates to his heart these little things sneak inside unnoticed like a Trojan horse and then hurt him when the memories come flooding back.”
This will always be one of my favorite songs. I am sure, many of you, can relate to this song just as much as I can too.
Please find a VCR and bring that over too or we’re fucked.
This statement, can mean many things, and can be interpreted in many ways.
Do you ever just wanna hug someone so tightly to the point where you have absolutely no intentions of ever letting go because you want them to know just how much they mean to you and how much you love them and you just wanna take away all the bad things in their life and replace them with only good things?
