Scared To Be Lonely
Martin Garrix Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It was great at the very start
Hands on each other
Couldn't stand to be far apart
Closer the better

Now we're picking fights and slamming doors
Magnifying all our flaws
And I wonder why, wonder what for
Why we keep coming back for more

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you're holding me tonight
'Cause we're scared to be lonely?
Do we need somebody just to feel like we're alright?
Is the only reason you're holding me tonight
'Cause we're scared to be lonely?

Too much time, losing track of us
Where was the real?
Undefined, spiraling out of touch
Forgot how it feels

All the messed up fights and slamming doors
Magnifying all our flaws
And I wonder why, wonder what for
It's like we keep coming back for more

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you're holding me tonight
'Cause we're scared to be lonely?
Do we need somebody just to feel like we're alright?
Is the only reason you're holding me tonight
'Cause we're scared to be lonely?

Scared to be lonely, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Even when we know it's wrong
Been somebody better for us all along
Tell me, how can we keep holding on?
Holding on tonight 'cause we're scared to be lonely
Even when we know it's wrong
Been somebody better for us all along
Tell me, how can we keep holding on?
Holding on tonight 'cause we're scared to be lonely

Is it just our bodies? Are we both losing our minds?
Is the only reason you're holding me tonight
'Cause we're scared to be lonely?

Scared to be lonely, ooh, ooh
Scared to be lonely, ooh, ooh
Eh, eh, scared to be lonely

Overall Meaning

Martin Garrix's song "Scared To Be Lonely" is all about fear of loneliness and how it can affect a relationship. The song starts with a description of a couple who are deeply in love and can't bear to be apart from each other. However, as time passes, they start to pick fights and slam doors. They begin to focus on each other's flaws rather than what drew them together in the first place. Despite this, they keep coming back to each other, wondering why they can't let go. The chorus reveals that they are scared to be lonely and may only be holding onto each other out of fear.


The second verse highlights the time lost between them and how they've become distant and disconnected. The fights and arguments have intensified, magnifying their flaws even further. The couple is shown as unsure about why they keep coming back to each other, even though they know it's wrong. They realize that there might be someone better for them, yet they hold on to each other because they are scared to be lonely.


The chorus repeats, emphasizing the theme of fear of loneliness in the relationship. The song ends with the couple holding on to each other, even though they know it's not right, because they can't bear to be alone.


Overall, "Scared To Be Lonely" is a poignant song that explores the complexities of relationships and how fear can impact them. Garrix's lyrics show that holding on to someone solely out of fear of being alone can be a recipe for disaster.
