Cadillac dreams
Birdy Nam Nam feat. Teki Latex Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Love life, drive slow
Let the stars hidden in your mind glow
Cadillac dreams,

Pack your troubles in the trunk of the limousine
Black lights, high heels
A fine lady moving in her tight jeans
Move slowly if you wanna get to know me

Love life, drive slow
Let the stars hidden in your mind glow
Cadillac dreams,
Pack your troubles in the trunk of the limousine
Black lights, high heels
A fine lady moving in her tight jeans
Move slowly if you wanna get to know me

Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies

Cadillac dreams,
Vack your troubles in the trunk of the limousine
Take your time if you wanna get to know me

Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies
Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies




Hit the switch, visualize
Read the lights in the California skies

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to the song "Cadillac Dreams" by Birdy Nam Nam feat. Teki Latex suggest a luxurious and slow-paced lifestyle. The chorus instructs the listener to "love life" and "drive slow", implying the importance of savoring the good things in life and taking one's time. The phrase "let the stars hidden in your mind glow" suggests that these good things come from within one's own thoughts and imaginings. The titular "Cadillac dreams" represent the ideal life of luxury and excess, where one can pack their troubles in the trunk of their limousine and focus on enjoying the ride.


The second verse introduces a "fine lady moving in her tight jeans", who is presumably the singer's love interest. The implication is that she is a high-class woman, as symbolized by the "black lights" and "high heels" she wears. The line "move slowly if you wanna get to know me" suggests that this woman is not interested in a quick fling, and that one must take the time to get to know her before advancing any further.


The repeated phrase "hit the switch, visualize, read the lights in the California skies" suggests a metaphorical journey through the neon-lit landscape of California. The reference to hitting a switch may represent a turning point or moment of decision-making in this journey. Overall, the lyrics present a picture of a slow-paced, luxurious lifestyle where one can take the time to appreciate the good things in life and travel through a sparkling, dreamlike landscape.

So spacy, so trippy. Criminally underrated, and it should stay that way.
