Turn Me Well
Micachu Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Get to me and turn me well, I'm a tired soul.
Get to me and turn me well, I'm a tired soul.

I was told desire had a sell by date.
Well it's rotted and altered, but still remains.
Climbs the promise of no real change.
I didn't know you would last this long.
I didn't think I would last this long.

No vacuum is now, and here we are.
Did it hate to last, and here we are?
You squeezed my heart so tight tonight.
You must return it before you leave.

'cause when you get to me,
When you get to me,
When you get to me, you turn me well.

Get to me and turn me well, I'm a tired soul. (x4)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Micachu's song "Turn Me Well" are quite cryptic, but it is possible to interpret them based on their emotional and sonic qualities. The phrase "Get to me and turn me well, I'm a tired soul" is repeated throughout the song and serves as a kind of mantra. It suggests that the singer is overwhelmed and in need of someone to re-energize them or refresh their perspective. The phrase could be a call to a lover or a friend, or it could be a plea to the universe or a higher power.


The second verse introduces the idea that desire has a sell-by date, which could mean that the initial excitement and passion of a relationship or pursuit has expired, leaving the singer feeling empty or disillusioned. However, the line "Well it's rotted and altered, but still remains" implies that there is still some residual desire or longing that persists despite the decay. This is reinforced by the line "Climbs the promise of no real change," which suggests that the singer is aware that their situation is unlikely to improve, but they still cling to hope.


The final verse seems to be an acknowledgement of the temporary nature of the connection between the singer and the person they are addressing. The line "You must return it before you leave" suggests that the singer has given their heart to this person, but it is not a permanent gift. The repeated phrase "when you get to me, you turn me well" takes on a slightly different meaning here, as it could be interpreted as a warning rather than a plea. The singer is saying that whoever enters their life has the power to change them, but they should be careful not to do so recklessly or maliciously.
