Meaning of the song Atlantis by Seafret, and what it is about

Seafret's song "Atlantis" is about loss, longing, and pursuing something that could be out of reach. The vocalist previously knew or loved someone very much, but they have since moved away or been parted from, and the lyrics express her longing for that person or location. For the vocalist, "Atlantis" is a place that is significant and meaningful; it is a metaphor for something that is mythological, enigmatic, and maybe even idealised.


The song is filled with nostalgia and a need to get back to the broken relationship, even though it might not be achievable. The singer considers memories and experiences that are now out of reach as the lyrics' imagery conjures up feelings of melancholy and desire.


Lyrics of the song Atlantis by Seafret


The birds have left their trees

The light pours onto me

I can feel you lying there all on your own

We got here the hard way

All those words that we exchange

Is it any wonder things get broke?

 

Cause in my heart and in my head

I'll never take back the things I said

So high above, I feel it coming down

She said, in my heart and in my head

Tell me why this has to end

Oh, no, oh, no

 

I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall

We built this town on shaky ground

I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh, no

We built it up to pull it down

 

Now all the birds have fled

The hurt just leaves me scared

Losing everything I've ever known

It's all become too much

Maybe I'm not built for love

If I knew that I could reach you, I would go

 

It's in my heart and in my head

You can't take back the things you said

So high above, I feel it coming down

She said, in my heart and in my head

Tell me why this has to end

Oh, no, oh, no

 

I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall

We built this town on shaky ground

I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh, no

We built it up to pull it down

 

And we build it up and we build it up

And we build it up to pull it down

And we build it up and we build it up

And we build it up to pull it down

 

I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall

We built this town on shaky ground

I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh, no

We built it up to pull it down
