360
Charli XCX Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Give me more
Give me more
Like that
We watch it settle down
And capitalize on whatever moves
Grab a little bit for your friends
Before they catch you
You better hide yourself away
Now they′ve set off to come capture you
Get rid of that evidence
They're going to catch you

Help me decipher, secrets
Please don′t tell
Can I borrow some sugar?

On my own
They're going to get you
And all stretched out
They're on their way now
It feels like I′ve been here for hours
And I′m all stretched out

Then when you show your hands
See them glow eight shades of red
Bit late to think of alibis
Just answer the question
Here's where the truth comes out
Veil′s lifted, your secret's out
Quit crying innocence
They′ve already got you

Help me decipher, secrets
Please don't tell
Stand up! Make us proud!
Carry on your back
Hold on, you′re not done yet
Finish what you started
Can I borrow some sugar?
Give me more

On my own
They're going to get you
And all stretched out
They're on their way now
It feels like I′ve been here for hours
And I′m all stretched out

You can't act right
Do not act now
You I can hate

You watch it settle down
And capitalize on whatever moves
Grab a little bit for your friends
And then they catch you

Here′s where the truth comes out
Veil's lifted, your secret′s out
Quit crying innocence
They've already got you
Got you

Give me more
Give me more
Give me more

On my own
They′re going to get you
And all stretched out
They're on their way now
It feels like I've been here for hours
And I′m all stretched out

Help me decipher, secrets
Please don′t tell
Stand up! Make us proud!
Carry on your back
Hold on, you're not done yet




Finish what you started
Can I borrow some sugar?

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Charli XCX's song "360" depict themes of deceit, betrayal, and the consequences of one's actions catching up to them. The repetition of "Give me more" could symbolize the singer's insatiable desire for something, whether it be secrets, lies, or attention. As the song progresses, there is a sense of urgency and paranoia as the singer realizes they are being pursued for their wrongdoings. They are urged to hide, but eventually, the truth will be revealed.


The lines "Help me decipher, secrets / Please don't tell / Can I borrow some sugar?" suggest a plea for assistance in keeping secrets hidden and maintaining a facade of innocence. The mention of borrowing sugar could symbolize seeking comfort or assistance from others in times of trouble. However, the singer is ultimately on their own and must face the consequences of their actions.


The imagery of being "all stretched out" could represent feeling exposed, vulnerable, and ultimately trapped by one's own actions. The lyrics convey a sense of being overwhelmed and exhausted by the weight of deceit and guilt. The singer is aware that their time is running out and that they will soon face the repercussions of their actions.


The repeated motif of being caught and the urgency in the lyrics emphasize the inevitability of facing the truth and accepting the consequences. The singer is urged to stand up, face the music, and finish what they started. The repeated plea for "more" could signify a desire for redemption or forgiveness, but ultimately, the singer must confront the reality of their situation and accept responsibility for their actions.
