Audition (The Fools Who Dream)

Emma Stone Lyrics


Audition (The Fools Who Dream) Lyrics

Audition (The Fools Who Dream) Song Lyrics

My aunt used to live in paris
I remember, she used to come home and tell us
Stories about being abroad and

I remember that she told us she jumped in the river once,

She smiled,
Leapt, without looking
And tumble into the sand
The water was freezing
She spent a month sneezing
But said she would do it, again

Here's to the ones
Who dream
Foolish, as they may seem
Here's to the hearts
That ache
Here's to the mess
We make

She captured a feeling
Sky with no ceiling
Sunset inside a frame
She lives in her liqour,
And died with a flicker
I'll always remember the flame

Here's to the ones
Who dream
Foolish, as they may seem
Here's to the hearts
That ache
Here's to the mess
We make

She told me:
A bit of madness is key
To give us the colors to see
Who knows where it will lead us?

And that's why they need us,
So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays

And here's to the fools
Who dream
Crazy, as they may seem
Here's to the hearts that break
Here's to the mess we make

I trace it all back,
To that
Her, and the snow, and the Seine
Smiling through it
She said
She'd do it, again

"Audition (The Fools Who Dream)," performed by Emma Stone in "La La Land," is a pognant tribute to dreamers and the beauty of embracing life’s risks and uncertainties. The song begins with a personal anecdote about the singer's aunt, who once lived in Paris and exemplified the spirit of a dreamer. This aunt's story of impulsively jumping into the Seine River, despite the resulting discomforts, symbolizes the essence of taking leaps of faith and experiencing life fully, even if it means facing challenges.

The chorus, "Here's to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem," celebbrates those who dare to dream and pursue their passions, regardless of how unrealistic or impractical these dreams might appear to others. The song honors not just the success but the emotional journey of pursuing dreams, acknowledging the heartaches and the metaphorical mess created in the process of chasing one’s aspirations.

The lyrics, "She captured a feeling, sky with no ceiling, sunset inside a frame," reflect the ability of dreamers to capture and appreciate the beauty and limitless possibilities in the world around them. The song also touches on the theme of transience, with the line "She lives in her liquor, and died with a flicker," suggesting that while dreams and the pursuit of them can be fleeting, they leave a lasting impact.

Towards the end, the song emphasizes that a bit of madness is essential to see life's vibrant colors and possibilities. It calls for embracing the unconventional, the creative, and the passionate – the rebels, the artists, and the thinkers who change the world.

"Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" is a heartfelt ode to the dreamers and creatives who enrich our world with their passion, imagination, and willingness to embrace life's unpredictable journey.

This interesting clip captures the moments of a musical film from the brand new side that we may have captured with songs ‘A Lovely Night’ and ‘Another Day Of Sun.’ In the contrast to them, which were of glorious mood, this composition is smooth and lyrical. It is performed by a hero of Emma Stone. The existing clip as for now has only 1 minute and 24 seconds and it tells a little from the global lyrics of this song that are present on the site in the description of a song (it is started somewhere in between and ends the same).
A girl sings about the mess that is possible to be made and the feeling of nothingness when you're in love with a guy (or a girl, if you’re a guy) you just met maybe hours or days ago, and when you see him and he sees you, you both have a feeling like it is no ceiling above and you literally soar under the sky. In the scene, it is a strong sensation that there are strips behind their backs, which were removed technically at the post-processing stage. Maybe this moment was not good enough rehearsed by the heroes of the musical. But leaving one this small aspect aside we see only the pure misunderstanding of what could go wrong between the heroes – the reflections of a girl. This misunderstanding is fully exposed by a hero of Mrs. Stone.
Despite a little bit gloomy feeling that is made by the song, this piece is about love but not the sad love that it might seem at the first glance. It is sung about the different feelings that may occur when you date someone – the range of them. These are feelings about being the dumbass, about jumping in the river, about going barefoot, about looking, gazing, and staring, when you see the person you like and you just cannot draw your attention away because it would seem that it is impossible – that strong affection you have. You're captivated and overwhelmed by this. You may ask yourself what leads you towards this person and the answer is that you need him or her. There is also a phrase about heartbreak but not necessarily, it has to be so. Let's just consider this song as a small piece of blues in this film. It doesn't say at all that the overall sensation of a film is gloomy as this song – we think it was just made to play on contrast.
This is also a song of a girl who used to be a little one and recalls how her grandmother told her she was in Paris. It partially explains the naivety of a female hero and it totally goes in line with many female characters that are depicted and gathered in Mrs. Stone's hero.
The creators of the film were definitely influenced by 'The Umbrellas of Cherbourg' and 'Singing in the Rain' Hollywood musicals, but everyone agrees that they preserve own identity. This identity also largely kept by the heroes even when they break apart which is necessary to make the plot of the film evolve. Despite the standard way of things, heroes of Mr. Gosling and Mrs. Stone draw your attention from the first time you see them together on the screen. Maybe this is because of the fact that it is distinctively visible – they spent much more than hundreds of hours of dancing rehearsals. This allowed them to make the main photo shoot for the cover of the film almost impeccable. We're talking about the cover when they are freezing with their ‘hands-bodies dance’.
It is also must be mentioned that this song named ‘Audition’ because it should underline the frustration of the main hero who was failed on every single audition that she had. Someone of critics called it the ‘intervention of the reality.’ It doesn't mean at all that the fairytale stopped for our heroes. It only means that a girl faced a reality from which she was withdrawn by the perfect feeling towards Mr. Gosling's hero. It is definitely a part of a fairytale. The genre tells us also that after one sad song it must be at least two cheered ones, at least in this movie.
