N Side
Steve Lacy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Meet me outside of my palace
Don't need no approval, girl, you valid
Let's make out right by my violets
Don't watch me do it, close your eyelids

Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
My darling
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
My darling

Damn, now we movin' kinda fast
It's cool, I guess you get a pass
I'ma kiss ya neck and grab ya ass
And when I do it, I'ma make it last
Yeah, yeah

Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
My darling
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside? (Inside)
My darling

Uh, hey baby
Um, I know I keep asking this
Um, but I guess I just really wanna know at this point
You know, we've been intimate for a while
We've been crushing on each other for years
But I guess I'd just really like to know if
You feel the same way about me as I feel about you
You know all your feelings for me inside of your heart
Let me know, bye

Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
(Inside, inside, inside, inside)
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
My darling
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
(Inside, inside, inside, inside)
Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?
My darling

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Steve Lacy's song N Side are about a person who is contemplating their relationship with their partner. The singer is asking their partner if their feelings for each other are genuine and if they are truly committed to each other. The chorus repeats the question, "Inside, inside, tell me, is it inside?" which can be interpreted as asking if their feelings for each other are real and internal or just superficial. The line "Don't need no approval, girl, you valid" indicates that the singer values their partner for who they are and does not need anyone else's validation.


The second verse indicates that the relationship is moving quickly, but the singer seems to be enjoying it. They are being physically intimate with each other and the line "I'ma make it last" implies that they want to savor the moment. The bridge of the song is a spoken word passage in which the singer expresses their desire to know if their partner feels the same way about them as they do. The repetition of the chorus emphasizes the importance of the question and the uncertainty the singer feels.


Overall, the song is about the complexity of relationships and the importance of communication and honesty. The lyrics capture the vulnerability and insecurity that comes with being in a romantic relationship.
