MGMT - Love Always Remains Lyrics

There's a place I'd like to go
Somewhere out west
It's not specific
And the pictures show it best

I know there's trees
I know there's sand
And I know there's grass
I know it's somewhere in the past

There's a girl out there who's lookin for it too
She's not sure when she'll go
Or exactly what she'll do
If I am doomed am I the first one or the last?
Am I just someone from the past?

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears
And the ocean and sun are always there
To make you happy if you're feeling scared
Of the darkness

If I ever saw a ghost
It'd change the way I think
I wouldn't gasp for air if ever I did sink
I wouldn't struggle
I'd just let it all out fast
And then start living in the past

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears
And the ocean and sun are always there
To make you happy if you're feeling scared
Of the darkness

If we hold the hand that rapes the hand
And everyone can feel the hand
And nothing's gonna change
It could be the time we're living in
We'll never feel so safe again
But love always remains
But love always remains
But love always remains
But love always remains
But love always remains
But love always remains

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears
And the ocean and sun are always there
To make you happy if you're feeling scared
Of the darkness

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears
And the ocean and sun are always there
To make you happy if you're feeling scared
Of the darkness

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears
And the ocean and sun are always there
To make you happy if you're feeling scared
Of the darkness

No one has to hear
The sound of people laughing at their fears
And the ocean and sun are always there
To make you happy if you're feeling scared

    I only heard it for the first time like a year ago and it's already nostalgic. I think that if I had heard it when it came out, me being in high school, I'd almost cry listening to it now.

  56. Nicole Hayward

    To be honest, I have two run away children in my house. I am a 45 year old lady. You can't lock kids up because they don't conform. Why does it matter what colour they are, what they prefer as sex and who they love? It matters a great deal, who they are with. I know they are safe here, but what are they running from. They are running away from foster care. I am not allowed to foster children, however here they are again. We have called the police and social services, nothing. I love our police so much, some I don't want to know. However, the ones who keep going in my town are always worrying about these kids. I've been in touch with them, nothing they can do except take my notes. I will keep noting, keep finding the kids and I will follow up on where they are going. Why are they here? They won't say, however, I can see fear in their eyes and I've just hugged them both. They need guidance, love from a mother and a father. This system is not working, why not try and help the parents look after their kids with your support? Then they won't be torn away and grow up hating their parents. The town I live in is full of masons. I hate this organisation because it protects them. Masons have ruled England for years, yet they deny it. Does the queen know, take a look at Rolph Harris paining the queen and then make up your own mind. Watch the making of John Wick, before you see the film. If anyone can save England, it's Harry. They got all the anger out of him, now he wants to follow his mother. Harry is a free spirit and will always be. However, he knows the truth and he is trying to sort it out. He doesn't want to kill, he wants to save. Nobody will stop Harry, but I bet they try. I am scared for his safety, but he will always keep going to places, always to make sure kids are OK. Yes, he's royal, but he was born into this world, what can we say but hope that he along with children across the world force governments to their knees and stop fighting. Stop lying and tell the truth for once. We are ready for the truth, some have been ready for years. Why all the new films? Do you fear something and are covering it up? Why aren't we allowed to sacred places if they are where are parents are buried? Three was a murder in our town and it's been all over the news so many times. Why is the guy who murdered Adrian Palmer is still out there. I'm not going to say the murders name, only the life of the boy he took should carry headlines, not the one who took his life. I know his mother, she knows the truth. So does his grandmother. Help them cope? Also this is most definitely about myself or my family. I am strong, I will speak the truth and I am honest. I will NEVER lie and they know that. So why isn't anything being done? Next, am I capable of killing anyone. I would be a liar if I said I wasn't capable. However, to murder someone you need to really be cruel, calculating and with absolute power and control driving you forward. Manslaughter, this is the act of killing someone you didn't mean to. Well, I think we need to look closely at a lot of overlooked statements and bring the truth out. I save birds, rabbits, nurse cats, ferrets I find. I rescue everything I can. When someone tried to hurt my children a violence erupts from me I find hard to control. I have to protect, it's like a switch inside my head. Once it goes, there is no going back, I won't stop and will fight to the death if I have to. I know I'm strong enough to kill a man with my bear hands and teeth. Would I do that, NEVER, EVER, EVER. I would rather die than let them near my kids. I have got one of my sons and helped the police arrest him after he pushed me over in the street. I love them, but they are victims too. Life goes on and we are nearly there. I want to educate my children to achieve their dreams. One wants to do plastering, the other cooks brilliantly. Well, all my kids do. I have no money, and I will never ask for any either. I will sell items I don't need in a large house I don't want to live in. I want a small place, clean, modern. For my two youngest sons and my wonderful partner. I have waited 2 years 7 months for a divorce. That's all I want.

    +Nicole Hayward reach out to someone who is AVAILABLE to actually help you..hope all goes well for you...a frank note however: no one likes walls of text. they are exhausting to read..unless you're a troll...which, I didn't even read the whole thing...because it looked like hard work.

    Nicole Hayward

    Thank you very much, yes I was suffering depression and blabber mouth. Much appreciated. 

    foxy shizzamm

    No prob. I suffer depression too. On that note, I'm going to go follow my own advice. Peace, Love and Light.

    Nicole Hayward

    Alexandria Pinto

    Emily DaCosta me too!!

  64. fallenhard709

    Favorite MGMT song. Just beautiful. Makes my heart ache when listening at night.

  65. sabreen

    s2g they added the auto tune ironically/as a joke bc that's what mgmt does, but the lyrics still hit hard.

  66. Andrew LeMond

    My two cents after listening to this song a quarter million times in 5 years. Whether it is "raised" or "raped" is honestly open to interpretation by the listener. Depending on what mood you are in and how you form the context of the song (ie a happy song about love that remains would be "raised"; seeing the song as one about the melancholy fear of losing innocence and love, "raped" would fit.) Either way, to make it clear, I do not believe anyone in MGMT literally meant that act of sexual assault, but more-so the loss of innocence as we grow older.

    The Joyful

    @Andrew LeMond Thank you :)

    Solar Dile

    +Andrew LeMond its rapes lol

    Ivan Ivaninsky

    Billy Wilder
    I hate you
    I've seen you do gay things too
    Don't make me release it
    Take it back or suffer the consequences

    Alexis Sosa

    Andrew LeMond wrong

    anyssa verdugo

    Even I paradise your words are striking! Rip

  67. Drew Blubber

    It says "Raised"... you can hear it especially well if you turn it up because of the auto tune... there is no RAPED, its RAISED. Just listen. Raped wouldn't make sense in the context of the song anyways.

  68. Ian Atchison

    To the people who say it doesn't say rape, literally every site that has lyrics agrees that it is rape.

  69. noah bender

    This song makes me sad

  70. Viperzsx

    Why don't they do this live?


    Big question. This is better than 70% of what they play live.

  71. Veyyes Sanchez

    Love always remains.... R.I.P Carlos Dume and Maria Herez. Love you guys.

  72. Alan Avila

    My favoirite song after Siberian Breaks.

    Chris Rayment

    My brother. love siberian breaks


    brah, you know what's up..

  73. Rebecca Moos

    This song means the world to me. So much meaning in so little lyrics. It describes all I'm going through right now.

  74. Alberto González

    Does it?

    Deniz k

    "heavy breath"

  75. Tyler Randolph

    Does it say "raised" or "raped"? I've always thought it said "rape". That's what it sounds like to me. Although I've never understood that line. Beautiful song though. 

    The Fakey Cake Maker

    Yeah I think it says rape, the idea being that certain experiences take our innocence away from us (I think).  Personally I'd prefer it if it was raised as I think rapes spoils the song.

    Tyler Randolph

    @The Fakey Cake Maker I agree. I'd rather think it says raised, than rape, because it's such a happy song, and the word rape does kind of give it a dark undertone. But I think that is the point.

  76. Kaylie

    i want this to be the song played at my funeral :P everyone will cry their heads off  

    Brian Foster

    haha cruel

  77. Jung Wee Park

    love this song

    Paulie Favara

    @Taylor Pugliese yea there's alot of songs that do that to me sland by the shins is one of them..check out pope is a rockstar by sales I'm liking that track lately too :)

  84. Chuck Costello

    This song... true love always remains... to feel this bad something wouldve had to make me feel incredible before. Life.

  85. DetailsByThee

    I recently finished writing a book… A book simplistically titled “Details”… The story’s purpose is to convey a message of kindness and unity. Written for those who love to love. I would be more than honored to share it with you. Additional information can be found on my YouTube profile, in the “About” section. Hopefully, this message will trigger a spark of curiosity, taking you straight to the intricate mystery of “Details”… :)

  86. Westerley Campbell

    Love this song....

  87. Swag Money

    They totally need to get rid of the last 25 seconds of the song, ruins the mood.

  88. Rafael Rodriguez

  90. The Fakey Cake Maker

    No you're not. You're going to live and be strong and show the world that you are an overcomer!

  91. kexchoklad4konsum

    @Worgen Freeman
    What the hell man!? How can you encourage someone to commit suicide? Your kind disgusts me!

    @Jayne Bundy
    Suicide is never the answer, no matter what.

  92. cjcgangster

    I'm confused by the lack of drums and guitars on the new releases, what are the other band members going to do?
