Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ok give me a moment here

Sir you didn't realize how much you were loved,
I-I feel like people are gonna show their appreciation for you,
People are gonna come around to your ideas, uhh you know you were right all along now people are gonna start seeing that,
But congratulations this is like a dream for you and then finally now the dream is gonna become true




Overall Meaning

The opening lines of Bones's song Importing convey a sense of posthumous appreciation for someone who may not have realized their own worth when they were alive. The singer seems to be talking directly to this person, calling them "Sir" and expressing a sense of regret that they weren't more fully appreciated in their lifetime. However, there's also a note of optimism here - the singer suggests that this person's ideas will finally be recognized, and that this recognition will be like a dream coming true.


The rest of the song expands on this theme. Bones talks about the struggle of "importing" a certain mindset or way of living, acknowledging that it can be difficult to get others to see the world as you do. He mentions that some people might try to shut you down or put you in a box, but ultimately there will be others who see the value in what you're doing. It's a song about persistence, about continuing to believe in oneself even when others don't, and about the power of having even one person who truly understands and supports you.


Overall, Importing is a song that encourages listeners to keep pushing forward with their visions, even if they face obstacles or doubt from others. The idea of being "imported" - of bringing something new or different to a situation - is a powerful one, and in Bones's hands it becomes an anthem of hope and determination.
