Olivia Rodrigo Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hate to give the satisfaction asking how you're doing now
How's the castle built off people you pretend to care about?
Just what you wanted
Look at you, cool guy, you got it
I see the parties and the diamonds sometimes when I close my eyes
Six months of torture you sold as some forbidden paradise
I loved you truly
You gotta laugh at the stupidity

'Cause I've made some real big mistakes
But you make the worst one look fine
I should've known it was strange
You only come out at night
I used to think I was smart
But you made me look so naïve
The way you sold me for parts
As you sunk your teeth into me, oh
Bloodsucker, famefucker
Bleeding me dry like a goddamn vampire

And every girl I ever talked to told me you were bad, bad news
You called them crazy, God, I hate the way I called them crazy too
You're so convincing
How do you lie without flinching?
(How do you lie? How do you lie? How do you lie?)
Oh, what a mesmerizing, paralyzing, fucked up little thrill
Can't figure out just how you do it and God knows I never will
Went for me and not her
'Cause girls your age know better

I've made some real big mistakes
But you make the worst one look fine
I should've known it was strange
You only come out at night
I used to think I was smart
But you made me look so naïve
The way you sold me for parts
As you sunk your teeth into me, oh
Bloodsucker, famefucker
Bleeding me dry like a goddamn vampire

You said it was true love, but wouldn't that be hard?
You can't love anyone, 'cause that would mean you had a heart
I tried to help you out, now I know that I can't
'Cause how you think's the kind of thing I'll never understand

I've made some real big mistakes
But you make the worst one look fine
I should've known it was strange
You only come out at night
I used to think I was smart
But you made me look so naïve
The way you sold me for parts
As you sunk your teeth into me, oh
Bloodsucker, famefucker
Bleeding me dry like a goddamn vampire

Overall Meaning

In "Vampire," Olivia Rodrigo dives into the complexities of a toxic and manipulative relationship. The lyrics depict a situation where the singer's ex-partner, referred to as a "vampire," has built a facade of popularity and success by surrounding themselves with people they pretend to care about. The singer acknowledges the allure and charm of this person, yet also recognizes the harm caused by their actions.


The song explores the singer's realization of being deceived and used for the vampire's personal gain. They reflect on the months of emotional torment, symbolically described as "torture," which were presented as a forbidden paradise. Despite the mistakes the singer admits to making, they emphasize that the vampire's actions are far more destructive. The vampire's manipulative nature is compared to that of a bloodsucking creature, draining the singer emotionally and metaphorically leaving them empty and broken.


The lyrics also touch upon societal perceptions and dynamics. The vampire is described as someone who deceives not only the singer but also those around them. The singer acknowledges how their ex-partner managed to persuade others, convincing them with their eloquent lies. The mention of other girls who warned the singer about the vampire's true nature highlights the cyclical pattern of manipulation and deception.


Overall, "Vampire" captures the aftermath of a toxic relationship, exposing the manipulative behavior of the vampire and the emotional toll it takes on the singer.

The singing? 100%
The acting? 100%
The idea? 100%
The performance? 100%
The mood? 100%
Olivia is not only a beautiful, incredible singer, but she is also an wonderful actor! The way she performs on stage during the 19th Grammys Award is just nostalgic! Along with her director, they all slayed this masterpiece. It's more than a masterpiece! It's a sensational feeling that affects her journey through singing.
Olivia killed it tonight. She will be strong in the future, taking from previous albums and putting them in her future songs.
I am SO proud of Olivia. She deserves more than a top 1 in trending. She is the Goddess of music and arts.
I watched Olivia grow up-from a high school teenager to a betrayed girl to a vampire. Who's with me? WE WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT YOU, OLIVIA!
I am super excited for the GUTS album. Once again, she will bring the best out of her EVERY, SINGLE, SONG!
LIVIES! Let's rise for Olivia's boldness and influences for all her fans!

bleedin' me dry like a goddamn vampire 💜
