"Intervals" is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. It is currently unknown which album this song was intended for. The studio session was leaked in 2013, however, it wasn't discovered until March 17th, 2016, the same day that the alternative version was leaked.

Background

This was recorded during Melanie's acoustic era before she was signed to a label.

Theme

The exact meaning of the song is unknown, however, it is likely about a breakup that Melanie went through in the past. She loves this boy a lot and would do anything for him. In the song, Melanie sings, "You live so far away from me", likely meaning that the boy she was in love with moved away and they had to break up.

Another theory is that the boy was visiting New York (where Melanie lived at the time) and Melanie met him, quickly falling in love with him. However, he lived in another city far away and they couldn't be together. 

Another theory is that, Melanie had a long distance relationship. She states in the song,"The planes that I flew", likely meaning she met up with her lover by traveling to them. But, it seems that Melanie was growing tired of this long distance relationship despite still loving them. "Plates start to shatter and I start to weep, 'cause baby you live so far away from me", She describes how she feels as things are breaking because her lover lives so far away from her.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Everything you've got in my head
Had melted in my heart like butter on bread
And I, I'm so weak for you
What should I do?
I linger on every word you speak
I meditate on them as I fall asleep
And I dream of me and you
It's all that I do

[Chorus]
The size of my heart
Grew larger with you
The circles on these maps
The planes that I flew
Time isn't a problem
When you're already through
Could find someone closer, boy, but they aren't you

[Verse 2]
Plates start to shatter and I start to weep
'Cause baby you live so far away from me
And what, what should I do? Which road leads to you?
Calling your name and wondering if you
Could hear me with all of the trains that pass through
But no, you're too far to hear my call

[Chorus]
The size of my heart
Grew larger with you
The circles on these maps
The planes that I flew
Time isn't a problem
When you're already through
I could find someone closer, boy, but they aren't you

[Bridge]
Please forgive me, you don't know how sorry I am
Never was one to play games but why don't you understand
This sadness, they say is a gift but they lied
Can't help but to feel its a curse in my eyes

[Chorus]
The size of my heart
Grew larger with you
The circles on these maps
The planes that I flew
Time isn't a problem
When you're already through
I could find someone closer, boy, but they aren't you
