Walking Back Home
Vira Talisa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Mr. Blue Melville was a sailor at dawn
He sailed on his ship as I walked through the shore
He took all the glitter and left me away
And Mr. Blue Melville has gone

The night was brighter when you lingered
And love was a mystery 'till you walk by my side
But now my heart's singing and tonight I'll be fine
Without you I'm walking back home

The night was brighter when you lingered
And love was a mystery 'till you walk by my side
But now my heart's singing and tonight I'll be fine
Without you I'm walking back home

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Vira Talisa's song Walking Back Home tell a story of lost love and self-discovery. The first verse introduces the subject of Mr. Blue Melville, who is described as a sailor leaving the shore as the singer is walking along it. The lyrics suggest that Mr. Blue Melville has taken "all the glitter" and left the singer behind, indicating he is a symbol of a past love who has moved on without her. The second verse expresses nostalgia for the time when love was exciting and mysterious, and the presence of the past love made everything brighter. However, the chorus suggests that the singer has come to terms with the end of the relationship and is ready to move on, declaring that "Without you I'm walking back home."


The imagery in the lyrics of Walking Back Home is focused around the contrast between light and dark, and the idea of a journey toward self-discovery. The use of the sailor as a symbol of a lost love is a common trope in romantic songs, and the contrast between his departing ship and the singer's walk along the shore emphasizes the idea of moving on. The repeated line "The night was brighter when you lingered" emphasizes the idea that the past love brought light and excitement to the singer's life, while the declaration that "tonight I'll be fine" indicates that she is ready to move forward without him.


Line by Line Meaning

Mr. Blue Melville was a sailor at dawn
In the morning, Mr. Blue Melville left for his boat to sail.


He sailed on his ship as I walked through the shore
While I walked along the coastline, Mr. Blue Melville was busy sailing on his boat.


He took all the glitter and left me away
He took away all the shining moments and left me behind.


And Mr. Blue Melville has gone
Mr. Blue Melville is gone now.


The night was brighter when you lingered
When you were here, everything felt brighter and more alive in the night.


And love was a mystery 'till you walk by my side
I did not understand love until you walked alongside me.


But now my heart's singing and tonight I'll be fine
Although you are gone, my heart is content and I will be okay tonight.


Without you I'm walking back home
I am walking home alone without you by my side.

Surti remaja anak bapak kades
Dan si tejo jejaka baru aja mudik
Berdua saling mencinta sejak lulus sd
Hingga kini beranjak gede
Surti sumringah arjunanya pulang
Tiga tahun berpisah nyari dana di kota
Mereka melepas rindu di pematang sawah
Hingga malam selimuti desa
Jemari tejo mulai piknik dari wajah sampai lutut surti
Tanpa sadar sarung merekapun jadi alas
Mirip demo memasak
Tejo mulai berakting di depan surti
Masang alat kontrasepsi
Surti menjerit serentak menutup matanya
Surti menangis kecewa arjuna berubah
Hilang tejo yang dulu ngampung dekil lugu tapi Surti suka
Berganti tejo yang gaul yang funky yang doyan ngucapin
Pam pam pam pam cuap
Surti berlari kayak kesurupan
Dan si tejo ngelamun menahan konaknya
Diacungkan jari tengah ke arah surti
Penuh dendam dia bilang
F you
Surti menangis
Surti kecewa
Diacungkan jari tengah ke arah surti
Penuh dendam dia bilang
F you (surti f you)
