Linkin Park - The Little Things Give You Away Lyrics




Water grey
Through the windows, up the stairs
Chilling rain
Like an ocean everywhere

Don't wanna reach for me, do you?
I mean nothing to you
The little things give you away

And now there will be no mistaking
The levees are breaking

All you've ever wanted
Was someone to truly look up to you
And six feet under water
I do

Hope decays
Generations disappear
Washed away
As a nation simply stares

Don't wanna reach for me, do you?
I mean nothing to you
The little things give you away

But now there will be no mistaking
The levees are breaking

All you've ever wanted
Was someone to truly look up to you
And six feet under water
I do

All you've ever wanted
Was someone to truly look up to you
And six feet under ground now I—
Now I do

[Brad's guitar solo]

Little things give you away [4x]

[6x]
All you've ever wanted (little things give you away)
Was someone to truly look up to you (little things give you away)

Linkin Park The Little Things Give You Away Comments
  1. Justin Sane

    Rinkin Pak was huge in China...just saying.

  2. Tirupati Srinivasa Atma Raman

    One of Brad's best solo after "In Pieces" in this album. Though is song is so under-rated, gotta be the best

  3. Sandy Cheeks

    I think this was the last song on the albumn because I remember falling asleep to it

  4. Eduina Santos

    This song is a masterpiece! ❤

  5. Hana Song

    yeah i was listening to bullshits people was saying about LP, after i listened to all their songs, i realized there are some better songs than the "In The End", "Crawling" etc like this one. still my favorite album from them and still my favorite music from them so far.

  6. Dhrupad Kumar Malakar

    I will miss Linkin Park.

  7. Vivian St.Claire

    This song is so impressive live. I never saw it live but only on you tube.💜🦄

  8. Lee Coetzee

    It's such a beautiful song...... truly

  9. Killer Diaz01

    I love this song 🥺🥺

  10. Zeeshaan Ahmad

    Some of these songs deserve a class of their own...Little Things, Hands Held High, etc.

  11. Lee Petersen

    He so awesome I do miss him [email protected][email protected]!

  12. Ashley Piper

    Helps me sleep

  13. Axel Hamster

    How can you handle all the feelings? I'm just tired.

  14. katiria 77

    His voice is unforgettable ❤️

  15. hobbies and passions

    the song reminds me of someone who got lost along the way...someone I knew very well...

  16. Khalid Saifullah Sakib

    Oh my God that solo 💜💜💜

  17. xlide31

    Future will be the response and will reveal Linkin Park as BEST BAND OF ALL TIME.

  18. monika93lp

    I remeber when i was younger, 16 maybe 17, i had this notebook with all LP song lyrics and i was listening the music and singing to myself. It was healing.

  19. Tetrapex

    I had three dream sequences where this song was constantly playing and it kept repeating "The little things give you away" and it kept the nightmares away when I knew I was dreaming. It kept pointing out the little details about my being in a dream. It was surreal.

  20. phoənix dom

    All you've ever wanted, was someone to truly look up to you, and fix feet under water
    I
    Do.


    I still don't get used to listening to each song, without crying. ♡

  21. 667metalfreak

    i was 12 years old, when this album came out and ive been an a fan of lp since the very beginning, but when i first heard this song i was like "meh, too slow of a pace". now im 24 and this song hits so deep, what an underrated and truly beautiful song

  22. David White

    How does the world, a country, a society produce someone as unique as Chester when statistically, demographically his life and life experience is shared in a lot of ways with millions and millions of people?

  23. Forcowicz

    Why these most talented souls leave too early? :(

  24. Dani Schäfli

    Bitte nid schloh Schatz.. Aber ich wills eifach nomol sägä.. Ich bi dir nix schuldig.. Ich bi verwirrt.. Und ich vermiss dich.. Es git nüt süessers.. Chum etz hei.. Du bisch mir au nüt schuldig.. Usser seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhr, vill Ziit.. 😘👸
    🌹💘

  25. tboyhungary

    i need a friend.

    lofiramen

    tboyhungary didn’t expect someone to be listening to this currently

    tboyhungary

    @lofiramen There will always be ppl who listen to it.

  26. David Uriel Torres Gutierrez

    Cómo es que apenas conocí esta canción😔

  27. 日下部マグマラシ

    One of the most underrated LP songs and one of my favourite ones. I love the chorus and the calm feeling.

  28. WAL ARAUJO

    I love this song!! I'm from Brazil 🇧🇷

  29. Lufrager

    Russia, Siberia. I’m 17. My depression brings me here. I don’t really like myself and my life now. Listening to LP stuff I feel that I’m not alone in my thoughts. I’m new fan of Linkin Park, I’ve listened to them about 3 months yet. It’s a big shame that I didn’t listen to LP when Chester was alive. Rest In Peace Chester.

    P.S. Sorry if I have grammar mistakes, my English isn’t perfect)

  30. MrChrisproductions

    goddamn masterpiece. Every single time.

  31. fiction mind

    Turn off your lights, lay on the bed, plug up your earphone and just listion to this masterpiece.

  32. Brandon Paria

    6ft under and I still look up to you Chester❤

  33. Lucas Gon

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAA linkin park é vida <3

  34. Evelin Acosta

    Cada vez que escucho su voz me dan ganas de llorar no lo supero

  35. Justin Sane

    I have a friend that really doesn't know this band much, I think this is the song that I'll send her....

  36. Maridiaz Zerrizuela

    Octubre 31, te oigo y el dolor no se va!!

  37. THe GERi

    That would be a nice piece of music history!

  38. Invisible Man

    I was sexually abused by a girl in my class from the age of 11 to the age of 16. I ended up with self-harm, nightmares, crying fits, suicidal feelings, fear of intimacy, difficulty with relationships and friendships, exacerbated by the loneliness of nobody having been there for me, and my abuse having been regarded by wider society as amusing and "payback" for what happens to women.


    This captures how I've been feeling ever since, it feels like a source of comfort somehow, especially since the lead singer had suffered something not dissimilar.

    shahed Sh

    I have a similar story... But they were two men.... I still suffer and no one knows about it.....
    I can feel you bro
    We are not ALONE❤️

    Invisible Man

    @shahed Sh ❤❤❤

  39. Nocturne _

    This song hits me differently now. The morning my friends told me that Chester passed this song came immediately to mind. I think of him whenever I hear this song and I’ll never forget how talented he was. It’s never gonna be the same without you Chester. Rest In Peace.

  40. PumpkinPie

    I never knew perfection had a musical form

  41. Antix

    Does anyone know where I can find the Acapella for this track?

  42. Ballack

    I miss you Chester

  43. SheetFiber4488

    Shinoda said this was their favorite song from the record. That guitar solo, damn beautiful. Since my childhood, I still love this song to this day. I wish they had played this more often when Bennington was still alive.

  44. Droolsial

    This song reminds me of Three Day's Grace's album Life Starts Now

  45. Wlliany Alves

    imagina essa música versão acapella, que perfeita seria

  46. DaphneLichtner

    This song hits me harder than anything

  47. Razer Marwan

    R. I. P Chester from UAE 18-10-2019

  48. Rawon Keliling

    12.00 AM on 17.10.2019, 3 times repeat this song and read all the fans comment. Dear Chester, you're a legend of my life. I love you and all Linkin Park music since 2003. Thank You, pal, Rest In Peace.

  49. Sankalp Bhatt

    I was under water and I was suffocating
    now underground I feel the relief
    No air to breathe but still somehow comforting
    Something I realised I just don't need


    I am not a lyricist but I like to pour my thought out on a piece of paper and this one I want to share.
    I hope you found peace, I hope I find it too.

  50. Lauss Link

    Te extraño chester

  51. running out of time

    Best song from the album and a top 3 song from Linkin Park

  52. SleepForever

    More relevant now than ever what with the mass extinction coming.

  53. Muhamad Abdul Rauuf

    the solo in this song is so good, i can't express it through words, it's like a mixture of sadness and idk...but it's freaking awesome, well done brad

  54. さんぺいな〜な

    もっとたくさん歌って欲しかった
    世界を盛り上げて欲しかった

  55. Mrityunjay Dixit

    RIP Chester

  56. Death Raven

    Best song ever. This album is one of the best by this band. Rip Chester

  57. Emma Ford

    All heroes become afraid, just like us. Chester is a hero, in the man he was and a legend we will never forget. X♥️ X forever linkin park, keep going X ♥️

  58. tarfathewise

    So many moments to this song in my life as it passes by. Good memories, smiling at someone you loved. Bad memories, saying goodbye to something too soon. Chester always had to make you really think during his songs. He made you feel like he understood you.

  59. Rad

    Brads guitar solo is very powerful in this song

  60. Rupjyoti Roy

    Water gray
    Through the windows, up the stairs
    Chilling rain
    Like an ocean everywhere
    Don't wanna reach for me, do you?
    I mean nothin' to you
    The little things give you away
    And now there will be no mistakin'
    The levees are breakin'

    All you've ever wanted
    Was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water
    I do

    Hope decays
    Generations disappear
    Washed away
    As a nation simply stares

    Don't wanna reach for me do you
    I mean nothin' to you
    The little things give you away
    But there will be no mistakin'
    The levees are breakin'

    All you've ever wanted
    Was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under water
    I do
    All you've ever wanted
    Was someone to truly look up to you
    And six feet under ground now
    Now I
    Now I do

    Little things give you away
    Little things give you away
    Little things give you away
    Little things give you away

    All you've ever wanted (Little things give you away)
    Was someone to truly look up to you (Little things give you away)
    All you've ever wanted (Little things give you away)
    Was someone to truly look up to you (Little things give you away)
    All you've ever wanted (Little things give you away)
    Was someone to truly look up to you (Little things give you away)
    All you've ever wanted (Little things give you away)
    Was someone to truly look up to you (Little things give you away)
    All you've ever wanted (Little things give you away)
    Was someone to truly look up to you (Little things give you away)
    All you've ever wanted (Little things give you away)
    Was someone to truly look up to you (Little things give you away)

  61. Ranman242

    This album is battling One More Light as my favorite. Something about LP's soft side just gets to me.

  62. Stefani Merritt

    2019 still a favorite

  63. Bogas Solti

    This song is a masterpiece loaded with emotions.

  64. Yura Zarakovsky

    I love Linkin Park music, I like listening it.

  65. reanimated

    another song about GW that happens to apply really well to trump, too...

  66. James Louthian

    I couldn't remember what the name of this song was, but my mission is to try and learn to play this on guitar. I'm still fairly new to playing guitar but this is something I wanna be able to just bust out randomly.

  67. TreesenHauser

    I'm going through a dark battle in my head right now... This song hits so hard.

  68. Cheese.420

    Took me a night and a smoke sesh to remember this song gahj

  69. Carys Hummel

    This is my sad song along with 1-800 sung by Logic. This is one my favourite sad songs, I love it! 💎

  70. Albus Bumbledoof

    can we get a reupload of this without all the shitty compression artifacts?

  71. Eyevenear

    Savior.

  72. Tri Januari

    I can't say and imagine how peaceful myself. This song is REALLY-REALLY GREAT. If you really love LP, don't just hear Numb, In The End, What I've Done, Crawling, or Somewhere I Belong. Because This slow song is also WONDERFULL. And this will always be part of my favorite songs from Linkin Park.

    Ranman242

    Don't forget the whole 2nd half of this album from Valentine's Day onwards! Also, One More Light and Invisible too!

  73. GentleGuyDude1234

    If Chester were here rn I think I would show him all the songs dat has purpose in life

  74. AtomicToaster

    Rob where was all this genius on the other records? The drumming is competent and works well in every linkin park song but rarely given time to shine. This song gives every member their moment, and Rob’s is spectacular. I had no idea he was this good, this subtle. Makes this track special.

  75. Josh Johnson

    This song still breaks me down like a new recruit in basic!

  76. Justine Dupré

    💔😭

  77. rofrigo l

    This fits the Bahamas' situation right now. Imagine if they made a song like this for them.

  78. Tamsin Beasley

    Broken heart.

  79. Talhe

    this song really feels like the 'midnight' of the album while the other songs are minutes counting down

  81. Kat Jackson

    The first time I've ever heard this song. I'll admit at the start I was a little bored but by the end they had me. How it builds with all those little parts and harmonies. Man. By the last note I was completely wrapped up in it.

  82. Tom Walton

    597 people off to hell

  83. RobinChanceSon

    Kill me

  84. Mrityunjay Dixit

    This song is so dark and so satisfying. This album has an aura. From given up and Leave out the rest to this masterpiece they hit so right and even so much harder now that Chester is not with Us.😭❤ rip wish WE coud've done SOMETHING to save you from yourself man. You rock in heaven man.

  85. tristan tobar

    Its so hard to hold back these 😢 im not ashamed to admit this! Rest well Chester

  86. Rock And Roll

    Hermoso

  87. Kaine Martin

    AAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL YOUVE EVER WANTED IS SOMEONE to truly look up too you

  88. Yare Core

    Soy de las personas que cada vez que escucha sus canciones llora por su partida☹️💔

  89. Bilguun Munkhbaatar

    3:52 I thought that solo was very hard. I learning guitar for 4 months. I learned that solo under 1 hours on acoustic guitar. It's easy as hell.

  90. 65starlight

    Shining on still !!! Chester 👍🏻

  91. Random Boyz

    2017:many people
    2019:more
    2190:yeah
    3019:legends are remebered
    3910:THANK YOU CHESTER

  92. Richard Dundas

    i can’t....i just cry ya know? losing Chester just really hurt as a fan. we grew up with him as if it was something so profound and spoke for us as a generation. to be honest, i even had Mac Miller in mind when i shed a tear. it’s those who were unaware of how much of an impact they make to millions that we really listened to with our hearts

  93. Tony Vilaysack

    I always thought it was so compassionate and empathetic how this band wrote this song for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. And then the fact that they closed their album with this song.

  94. Blueschy

    I always thought he said "all you ever wanted was someone to truly love come to you" idk why lol

    Arthur M.

    Because a lot of songs are about love... but Linkin Park make songs about heavy minds, heavy thoughts, depression, etc

  95. jayasurya jayachandran

    💙
    Classic.......♾

  96. Beatriz

    this song is a masterpiece. there's something hauntingly beautiful about it and no other song makes me feel the way this one does. I'm glad i'm feeling strong enough to listen to Linkin Park again , I've missed it

    Abhishek Thakur

    So beautiful, comforts the soul. The way it builds up is just amazing.
