Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ooh, Aphrodite
Ooh, I wrote your constellation into the sky
S-s-suns at night

We're out late, at 4 AM
He says, "how's the weather, baby?
How you've been?"
You're gonna get sick, you don't know when
They never doubt it at 4 AM
We're out late at 4 AM
He says, "how's the weather, baby?
How you've been?"
You're gonna get sick, you don't know when
They never doubt it at 4 AM

4 AM, 4 AM, falling down again
Unraveling

Ooh, Aphrodite
I wrote your constellation into the sky, ooh
S-s-suns at night

We're out late, at 4 AM
He says, "how's the weather, baby?
How you've been?"
You're gonna get sick, you don't know when
They never doubt it at 4 AM
We're out late at 4 AM
He says, "how's the weather, baby?
How you've been?"
You're gonna get sick, you don't know when
They never doubt it at 4 AM

4 AM, 4 AM, falling down again

We're out late, at 4 AM
He says, "how's the weather, baby?
How you've been?"
You're gonna get sick, you don't know when
They never doubt it at 4 AM
We're out late at 4 AM
He says, "how's the weather, baby?
How you've been?"
You're gonna get sick, you don't know when
They never doubt it at 4 AM

4 AM, 4 AM, 4 AM, 4 AM
4 AM, 4 AM, 4 AM, 4 AM
4 AM, 4 AM, falling down again
4 AM, 4 AM
I'm out late at 4 AM, yeah (4 AM, 4 AM)
I'm out late at 4 AM, yeah (4 AM, 4 AM)
Falling 4 AM, oh, oh
Falling down again, falling down again
Ah, oh

Overall Meaning

Grimes’s song "4ÆM" is about a night out with a lover at 4 AM, where they talk about mundane things like the weather, but the presence of sickness and danger lingers in the back of their minds. The lines "You’re gonna get sick, you don't know when, they never doubt it at 4 AM" suggest an air of paranoia and vulnerability at this hour. The chorus repeats the phrase "4 AM, 4 AM, falling down again" which can be interpreted in a few different ways. It could indicate physical exhaustion from staying up late, emotional exhaustion from the fear that comes with the late-night hour, or simply the feeling of being lost or overwhelmed.


The repeated phrase, "Ooh Aphrodite, I wrote your constellation into the sky" implies a sense of cosmic love or worship for the goddess of love, beauty, and sexuality. The line "S-s-suns at night" could be interpreted in a few different ways. It could be a reference to how love and passion can light up the night sky, or it could be a playful nod to the science fiction universe Grimes often draws inspiration from. Overall, the song captures the feeling of a sleepless night with somebody you care about, balancing the intimacy of the moment with the discomfort of being awake in the wee hours of the morning.
