The Night We Met
Lord Huron Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I am not the only traveler
Who has not repaid his debt
I've been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to the night we met

And then I can tell myself
What the hell I'm supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Oh, take me back to the night we met

When the night was full of terrors
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched me yet
Oh, take me back to the night we met

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don't know what I'm supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Take me back to the night we met

Overall Meaning

The opening lines of Lord Huron's song The Night We Met express a sentiment that many people can relate to – that of feeling like you owe a debt that you cannot repay. The singer acknowledges that he is not alone in this feeling, but that he has been searching for a path that he can follow. He longs to go back to the night he met the person he is singing to, as if that is where everything began to unravel.


The chorus of the song speaks to the confusion and heartbreak that can arise in a relationship that has gone wrong. The singer is grappling with what he is supposed to do, and is haunted by the memory of the person he lost. He is desperate to go back to that moment when things were still good, when there was still hope for the two of them.


The second verse of the song paints a picture of a scary and uncertain time, when the night was filled with terrors and the person he loves was crying. Yet even in this moment of darkness, the singer longs for the past, for the night they met. He cannot let go of the memory of what they once had, and he continues to be haunted by the ghost of the person he loved.


Overall, The Night We Met is a powerful and poignant exploration of loss, regret, and the longing to return to a moment in time when everything was still possible.


Line by Line Meaning

I am not the only traveler
There are others like me who have yet to fulfill their obligation


Who has not repaid his debt
Who still has a debt to pay, like me


I've been searching for a trail to follow again
I'm looking for a path to take me back to where I want to be


Take me back to the night we met
I want to return to that place where I was happy


And then I can tell myself
If I can just do this one thing


What the hell I'm supposed to do
Then I will finally know what I should be doing


Not to ride along with you
I will avoid making the same mistake again


I had all and then most of you
I once had everything with you, but now only have some or none of it


Some and now none of you
I lost you and now have nothing left


Haunted by the ghost of you
I can't get you out of my mind and you continue to haunt me


Oh, take me back to the night we met
Please bring me back to that moment when everything felt right


When the night was full of terrors
The night was dark and scary


And your eyes were filled with tears
You were emotional and vulnerable


When you had not touched me yet
Before we had made a physical connection


I don't know what I'm supposed to do
I'm lost and don't know which direction to take

this is the type of song that makes you feel something you can't really explain....

@MJ-mb3et

Sarah Claflin nostalgia I think. A lot of folkish songs give me that kinda feeling. It's like longing for something but not knowing what it is

@butterknifebab9681
