lock up, swallow the key.

don't read into this song. i just actually listened to this song and i really like the lyrics, even though they are kind of saucy. andrew belle is like a harder to understand version of taylor swift in the way that he writes relatable lyrics using fantasy or fairytale analogies. i also just genuinuely like how his songs to seem to have characterization and tell a full story. but i also really like analyzing lyrics and trying to come up with some sort of understanding of the situation an artist writes about ha!

enjoy.



I'm fighting sleep right now
don't matter why or how
I walked, through the thickness of your heart
Straight through the middle of your deepest darkest dream
I wrote the melody that brought you back to life, love
Come hear it for yourself
Oh, my love,
Come hear it for yourself
Oh, my love

Who says we're wrong for
Opening the wrong doors
Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me
Cause we've all fallen for
Someone we're wrong for
Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me

I kept it safe and still
You changed your shape until
Your weakling anti-bodies
Could stand up for themselves

Outside your window sill
I fell like jack for jill
And you came tumbling after
So stand up for yourself
Oh my love
Stand up for myself
Oh, my love, lest you forget
I'll write this down

Who says we're wrong for
Opening the wrong doors

Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me
Cause we've all fallen for
Someone we're wrong for
Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me

You're blaming all this on yourself
But the photograph that's on your shelf
Is of a younger, dumber, version of myself

But anyway

Who says we're wrong for
Opening the wrong doors
Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me
Cause we've all fallen for
Someone we're wrong for

Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me
You'll never replace me
You'll never replace me

'Cause, back then, I told you
If you fall I'll fall too
Lock up, swallow the key
You'll never replace me
