Figure It Out
Royal Blood Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Nothing here to see
Just a kid like me
Trying to cut some teeth
Trying to figure it out

Nothing better to do
When I'm stuck on you
I'm still in here trying to figure it out

Getting hard to sleep
Blood is in my dreams
Love is killing me
Trying to figure it out

Nothing better to do
When I'm stuck on you
I'm still in here trying to figure it out

I let it go, 'cause I won't see you later
And we're not allowed to talk it out
I said I'd go, put myself on show
But I'm still trying to figure it out

I broke my shoe, tripped and fell on you
But you didn't know I planned it out
I said I'd go, yeah, I won't see you later
And we're not allowed to figure it out, oh

Nothing here to see
Just a kid like me
Trying to cut some teeth
Trying to figure it out

Nothing better to do
When I'm stuck on you
I'm still in here trying to figure it out

I let it go, 'cause I won't see you later
And we're not allowed to talk it out
I said I'd go, put myself on show
But I'm still trying to figure it out

I broke my shoe, tripped and fell on you
But you didn't know I planned it out
I said I'd go, yeah I won't see you later
And we're not allowed to figure it out

Yeah

Throughout the song, the singer expresses their frustration with the object of their affection, describing them as a source of both heartache and inspiration. The lyrics touch on themes like unrequited love, longing, and the struggle to find one's identity and purpose.

Unbelieveable that the guitar is actually a bass...

@wkcchampion

Listen to Think for yourself by The Beatles. This kind of fuzz bass sound was already with us in 1965.

@andreasua5719

Actually is both things, he made this special instrument which plays as the same time bass and guitar, plus he sings...

@Harvey Tomlinson No, it isn't
