For real, for real this time
For real, for real, for real this time
Bitch, I cannot fall short
For real, for real, for real this time (yeah yeah)
For real, for real, for real this time

'Cause you make my earth quake
Oh, you make my earth quake
Riding around, your love is shakin' me up and it's making my heart break
'Cause you make my earth quake (earth quake, ooh)
Oh, you make my earth quake
Riding around, your love is shakin' me up and it's making my heart break

Don't leave, it's my fault
Don't leave, it's my fault
Don't leave, it's my fault (yeah)
'Cause when it all comes crashing down I'll need you

'Cause you make my earth quake
Oh, you make my earth quake
Riding around, you tell me something, baby, and it's making my heart break
'Cause you make my earth quake
Oh, you make my earth quake (earth quake, yeah)
Riding around, your love is shakin' me up and it's making my heart break (you already know)

We ain't gotta ball, D.Rose, huh

Overall Meaning

In "Earfquake," Tyler the Creator confesses his love to someone who makes his world turn upside down. He repeatedly acknowledges this person's ability to make his "earth quake" and how their presence shakes him up to the point where his heart breaks. Tyler's vulnerability is further evident in the refrain, where he pleads with this person not to leave because he needs them. He recognizes that the relationship is on shaky ground and takes the blame for their issues to convince his significant other to stay.


The second verse, however, takes a different tone, with Tyler brashly proclaiming his priorities. He makes irrelevant statements about basketball player D. Rose, and how he does not care about anything else. Despite the apparent change of tone, he still emphasizes his connection with his lover by mentioning Tyler and their shared bond. Switching gears from his braggadocio, Tyler expresses his need for his lover's feelings about their relationship matters. He acknowledges that he wants confirmation and has no interest in complicating the situation. He finishes the bridge saying it's his fault, repeating the refrain because he doesn't want his lover to leave.


Overall, "Earfquake" is a song about love and compels the listener to understand our human propensity for vulnerability in relationships. Tyler acknowledges his fault in the relationship by pleading and ultimately asking his lover not to leave him. The song's seemingly contradictory style variations in tone, touching on Tyler's abrasive persona, and comprises a brilliant commentary on romance.
