Them Changes
Thundercat Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Nobody move, there's blood on the floor
And I can't find my heart
Where did it go? Did I leave it in the cold?
So please give it back, 'cause it's not yours to take
It must've fell when I lost my mind
Deep in the cut, drowning in a pain
Somebody help, 'cause I can't find my way
Nobody move, nobody move

Somebody tell me how I'm supposed to feel
When I'm sitting here knowing this ain't real
Why in the world would I give my heart to you?
Just to watch you throw it in the trash
I've been traveling so long, I don't think I can hold on
Where were you when I needed you the most?
Now I'm sitting here with a black hole in my chest
A heartless, broken mess

The opening lines suggest a violent event with the presence of blood on the floor, and the singer's sense of loss is underscored in their search for their heart. Interestingly, the singer questions whether they left their heart "in the cold," implying that they may have made choices that led to their heartbreak.

The second verse highlights the confusion that often comes with heartbreak- the singer expresses uncertainty about their emotional state and the reality of the situation, questioning how they're supposed to feel in this moment. Regret and anger are both present as they reflect on giving their heart to someone who ultimately didn't value it, and the final lines suggest a sense of hopelessness and despair- the singer is alone and lost after being hurt so deeply.


Overall, Thundercat's "Them Changes" is a powerful exploration of the aftermath of heartbreak, conveying the intense emotions and confusion that often accompany such an experience.
