Snooze
SZA Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Ooh, ooh-oh, oh)
(I think I know, whoa-oh)

I'll touch that fire for you
I do that three, four times again, I testify for you
I told that lie, I'd kill that bitch
I do what all of them around you scared to do, I'm not
Long as you juggin' out here for me, I got it
Mobbin', schemin', lootin', hide your bodies
Long as you dreamin' 'bout me, ain't no problem
I don't got nobody, just with you right now
Tell the truth, I look better under you

I can't lose when I'm with you
How can I snooze and miss the moment?
You just too important
Nobody do body like you do
I can't lose when I'm with you
I can't just snooze and miss the moment
You just too important
Nobody do body like you do, you do

In the droptop ride with you, I feel like Scarface (Scarface)
Like that white bitch with the bob, I'll be your main one (main one)
Let's take this argument back up to my place
Sex remind you, I'm nonviolent, I'm your day one
We ain't had shit, yeah, it was magic, yeah
Smash and grab shit, yeah
Nasty habits take a hold when you not here
Ain't a home when you not here
Hard to grow when you not here, I'm sayin'

I can't lose when I'm with you
How can I snooze and miss the moment?
You just too important
Nobody do body like you do
I can't lose when I'm with you
How can I snooze and miss the moment?
You just too important
Nobody do body like you do, you do

Main one ridin'
How you frontin' on me and I'm the main one tryin'?
How you blame it on me and you the main one lyin'?
How you threatenin' to leave and I'm the main one cryin'?
Just tryna be your everything
Main one ridin'
How you frontin' on me and I'm the main one tryin'?
How you blame it on me and you the main one lyin'?
How you threatenin' to leave and I'm the main one cryin'?

I can't lose when I'm with you, ooh
How can I snooze and miss the moment?
You just too important
Nobody do body like you do
I can't lose when I'm with you
How can I snooze and miss the moment?
You just too important
Nobody do body like you do, you do

Nah, nah, nah, nah
I think I know, whoa-oh
See, no, I can't lose
I think I know, ooh-whoa, ooh-whoa-oh

the video starts with SZA and her various lovers, different races and environments. a variety of men. she is happy with each lover and this appears to be the honeymoon, infatuation phase.

the lyrics paired with these scenes include her describing how much of a rider she is. she’ll do whatever, steal, kill and lie.
as long as he’ll be there, giving her attention (dreaming about her is her only request)

the first time we hear the lyrics “i can’t loseeee, when i’m with youu” is when she is literally being used as a picnic table, with french fries and ketchup on her back.
she is merely an object for this person she is exclaiming all her devotion.

the lyrics continues, “how could i snooze and miss the moment, you just too important. nobody do body like you do.”
these men aren’t shown doing anything extravagant for SZA. she is in underwhelming places with all of them. a bedroom, a gym, a barn. but she continues call them the most important. (keep this in mind for later)

with the lyrics “in the drop top with you. i feel like scarface.” she is seen riding on top of the tractor (or whatever tf it is) with justin bieber’s character. now correct me if i’m mistaken, but this lawn equipment ain’t no convertible.

she is boosting up these men basic ass antics because she is projecting importance onto them. she sees the world in them because she is in love (with the idea of being desired and wanted? hmm idk)

it continues and we see her whispering in the ear of woody mcclain’s character, while he plays a video game on the side of a taxidermied animal.
he would rather play a blurry, furry ass video game on the side of this animal, than listen to SZA croon in his ear.
because SZA isn’t his time one, she isn’t a priority. she isn’t as important to him
couldn’t be me.

she starts arguing with her lovers simultaneously while the lyrics tell them how much she needs them cause nasty habits come back, the house doesn’t feel like a home and she doesn’t grow.

she then starts stripping in the shower to remind her lover she’s “nonviolent”,

as SZA realizes in the lyrics she is the only one trying, it then cuts to the gym where she dances a number in front of the robot.

with the all men from diff backgrounds, she realized it all ended the same.
she now seeks love, or attention, or desire from a robot. something that doesn’t have feelings or emotions unless programmed. it can be argued that she created it to love her, but it doesn’t show evidence of that.

after this sequence, SZA is seen running towards a man in a field. this scene is expansive and shows endless greenery. the focus is now, not on the man, but on SZA. this could be her era of self love,

the video ends on her frolicking naked through the dark, which we see with night vision. for me, this shows progression from using her body to keep the interest of her lovers to her feeling free without attachment

as a 2nd generation Asian American man, it’s incredible to feel and BE represented. Seeing Young play the role of a 'handsome', 'resilient' male figure was something I rarely got to experience in media growing up. Thank you SZA, thank you Young. This just made my week.

@ztarr

Representation is sooo important!! 🥲
