I Think
Bladee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Dark outside (yeah)
Uh-huh (whatever)
Dark inside

This is what I really want, it is, I think (mmm)
You think it mattered so much to me but it didn't (nah)
One day I am here, the next I'm gone, extinct (extinct)
I've become so very small, I shrink, it is

Pure love only, baby
Always is, always was
Make and break me, baby
Is this all, is this all I want

Maybe I could be the one for you, I wish
I wish I could play the sport, I hit, I miss
Are you coming back, of course you do, know this
I come out of the abyss but then I sink

Sink into the, into, into
Dark ashtray, I glow as I fade away
One day I'm here, the next I'm gone
I'm going away, that's tough
Pray, I pray for something
I pray all night every day, I pray (please God)
Waste it all for nothing, nothing's all
I'm going away, dissolve

So long (so long)
Love with you, the expiration date
Still stand tall (still stand tall)
Lift off, take away her love the best of all
Yeah

This is what I really want, it is, I think (mmm)
You think it mattered so much to me but it didn't (nah)
One day I am here, the next I'm gone, extinct (extinct)
I've become so very small, I shrink, it is

I know, I know, I know
What goes up won't stay up
You find me, don't mind me
Love, love, love, sex and drugs

At the end, it wasn't worth much, now I think
The duality of life, uh-huh, that's it
Say you wanna have some fun, fuck it, I'm in
Might as well even in case you take my wings

She cut my wings off, baby
Take and take, give a lot
Sunset, sun set me, baby
Give me all, God is love (whatever)





I have a God
You, you

Overall Meaning

The song "I Think" by Bladee is a melancholic piece that touches on the themes of love, loss, and the transient nature of existence. The lyrics suggest a sense of isolation and detachment from the world, both internally and externally. The opening lines "Dark outside, dark inside" set the tone for the rest of the song, which portrays a bleak and introspective perspective. The chorus repeats the phrase "This is what I really want, it is, I think" which suggests a degree of uncertainty and self-doubt. The singer is grappling with their desires and emotions, unsure of what they truly want.


The second verse introduces the concept of pure love, which is contrasted with the idea of wasting it all for nothing. The singer prays for something, but it's unclear what that something is. The repetition of the phrase "I'm going away, dissolve" suggests a desire to disappear or dissolve into nothingness. The outro has a final message of acceptance and resignation, as the singer acknowledges that "What goes up won't stay up". They are aware that every high must come to an end, and ultimately, they are at the mercy of fate.

I wish I could play the sport, I hit, I miss
But I'm coming back, of course you do, know this
I come out of the abyss but then I sink

Sink into the, into, into
Dark I fade, like love I fade away
One day I'm here, the next I'm gone
I'm gone, away, that's tough
Pray, I pray for something
I pray all night every day, I pray (Please God)
Was it all for nothing, nothing's all
I'm gone, away, dissolve

Lift off, take away alot but there's still love
But for what? For what I forgot

Love, love, love, sex and drugs

At the end, it wasn't worth much, not a thing
The duality of life, uh-huh, that's it
Say you wanna have some fun, fuck it, I'm in
Might as well live in a cage you take my wings

She cut my wings off, baby
Take and take, give give our love
