My Love Mine All Mine
Mitski Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Moon, a hole of light
Through the big top tent up high
Here before and after me
Shinin' down on me
Moon, tell me if I could
Send up my heart to you?
So, when I die, which I must do
Could it shine down here with you?

'Cause my love is mine, all mine
I love, my, my, mine
Nothing in the world belongs to me
But my love, mine, all mine, all mine

My baby, here on earth
Showed me what my heart was worth
So, when it comes to be my turn
Could you shine it down here for her?

'Cause my love is mine, all mine
I love, my, my, mine
Nothing in the world belongs to me
But my love, mine, all mine
Nothing in the world is mine for free
But my love, mine, all mine, all mine

Overall Meaning

In Mitski's song "My Love, Mine, All Mine," the lyrics delve into a deep introspective exploration of love, connection, and the transient nature of life. The imagery of the moon symbolizes a constant presence watching over the singer, offering a sense of continuity and comfort in a world that is ever-changing. The metaphor of sending up one's heart to the moon signifies a longing for eternal connection and a desire for a love that transcends beyond the limitations of mortality.


The repetition of the phrase "my love is mine, all mine" emphasizes the singer's possessive and protective nature towards their feelings, highlighting the intensity and exclusivity of their emotions. The idea that love is the only true possession in the world reflects a personal attachment to this ethereal and intangible emotion, suggesting that love is the most valuable and enduring aspect of human existence.


The mention of the singer's "baby" on earth further reinforces the theme of love and connection, showcasing how this earthly relationship has given their heart worth and meaning. The plea to have their love shine down for this significant person after the singer's passing underscores the depth of their devotion and the hope for a continued bond even beyond death.


Overall, "My Love, Mine, All Mine" is a poignant reflection on the transformative power of love, the fragility of life, and the profound impact that connections with others can have on our sense of self. Mitski's introspective lyrics invite listeners to contemplate the unique and profound nature of love and its ability to shape our identities and perceptions of the world.

Moon, a hole of light
Through the big top tent up high
Here before and after me
Shinin′ down on me

Moon, tell me if I could
Send up my heart to you?
So, when I die, which I must do
Could it shine down here with you?

Cause my love is mine, all mine
I love, mine, mine, mine
Nothing in the world belongs to me
But my love, mine, all mine, all mine

My baby here on earth
Showed me what my heart was worth
So, when it comes to be my turn
Could you shine it down here for her?

Cause my love is mine, all mine
I love, mine, mine, mine
Nothing in the world belongs to me
But my love, mine, all mine
Nothing in the world is mine for free
But my love, mine, all mine, all mine

@straightfromthepsychward

thank you mitski.

you’ve unknowingly saved my life when i was twelve in 2020. i was extremely suicidal at the time because of my abusive upbringing (along with the whole pandemic situation) and one of your older songs started suddenly playing in a shuffle of ‘goodbye music’ i put together that summer, since i was planning to commit beforehand. i don’t think there was much else to ease me out of it either now that i reminisce on that period of my childhood. i was at a peak where i couldn’t even talk myself out of doing something permanent and that fact terrified me looking back on it.

i haven’t ever cried my eyes out the way i did listening to your music for the first time. i wish i was able to verbalize the amount of ‘it’ll be okay’ energy that it just radiated altogether, how much i felt like i was actually alright, as if five minutes ago i wasn’t just considering ending my life.

i ended up deleting that playlist i planned out of course, learned to take care of myself more and eventually i started listening to her own songs as a form of comfort whenever i do reach that mental point.

i’m turning sixteen this december though, doing far better in terms of my mental health and i undoubtedly fell in love with her music all over again w this album. for those reading i hope mitski’s songs help u throughout what ur going thru as much as it’s helping me — it will get better. trust me. ^_^
