Arms Tonite
Mother Mother Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I fell in your arms tonight
I fell hard in your arms tonight, it was nice
I died in your arms tonight
I slipped through into the afterlife, it was nice
White light in your arms tonight
I lost sight in your arms tonight, it was nice

And hey, you, don't you think it's kinda cute
That I (I) died (died) right inside your arms tonight?
That I'm fine even after I have died?
Because it was in your arms I died

I cry in the afterlife
I cry hard because I have died, and you're alive
I try to escape afterlife
I try hard to get back inside your arms alive

And hey (hey), you (you), don't you think it's kinda cute
That I (I) try (try) to escape the afterlife?
That I (I) try (try) to get back in your arms alive?
That I died in your arms

That I fell hard in your arms
I went and died in your arms that night

I fell in your arms tonight
Suicide in your arms

And hey, you, don't you think it's kinda cute
That I (I) died (died) right inside your arms tonight?
That I'm fine even after I have died?
That I (I) try (try) to escape the afterlife?
That I (I) try (try) to get back in your arms alive?
That I died in your arms that night

I fell in your arms tonight
I died in your arms tonight
I lie in your arms tonight
I fell in your arms tonight

"I died in your arms.
I tried to escape the after life."

And then mother mother released Ghosting. Which goes like;
"I've been ghosting.
I've been ghosting along.
Ghost in your house, ghost in your arms "

This dude died, escaped after life and came back to her/his arms as a ghost.

No, that's pretty horrifying actually.

@rosericorico4980

Me flirting 😂😭

@keziahavila4827

I find it pretty cute in a symbolic and weird way

@chowchowchu8563

I kind of thought of it as two soldiers that are in love are on the battle field and one of them dies. The other soldier can't save them, instead holding them in their arms as they die.

@boyloverhiiro8937

@@chowchowchu8563 that's exactly how i imagined it too

@CoRLex-jh5vx

It's metaphorical for coming too soon in sex- sorry to ruin all the lovely/horrifying interpretations of this brilliant song.
