Apple
Charli XCX Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

I guess the apple don't fall far from the tree
'Cause I've been looking at you so long
Now I only see me
I wanna throw the apple into the sky
Feels like you never understand me
So I just wanna drive

To the airport, the airport
The airport, the airport

I guess the apple could turn yellow or green
I know there's lots of different nuances
To you and to me
I wanna grow the apple, keep all the seeds
But I can't help but get so angry
You don't listen to me

To the airport, the airport
The airport, the airport
The airport, the airport
The airport, the airport

I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night
I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night

I think the apple's rotten right to the core
From all the things passed down
From all the apples coming before
I split the apple down symmetrical lines
And what I find is kinda scary
Makes me just wanna drive
(Drive, drive, drive, dr-dr-dr-drive, drive, drive)
(I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night)
(I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night)
(Drive, drive, drive, dr-dr-dr-drive, drive, drive)

I wanna know where you go
When you're feeling alone
When you're feeling alone, do you
I wanna know where you go
When you're feeling alone
When you're feeling alone, do you
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)




(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you)

Overall Meaning

In Charli XCX's song "Apple," the lyrics suggest a deep introspection on the singer's relationship with someone close to them, possibly a parent or a significant other. The opening lines "I guess the apple don't fall far from the tree, 'Cause I've been looking at you so long, Now I only see me" indicate a sense of self-realization and understanding that they have become more like the person they've been observing for so long. The metaphor of the apple symbolizes the connection between generations and the ways in which traits and behaviors are passed down.


The repetition of the desire to go to the airport in the lyrics may reflect a longing to escape or seek clarity away from the current situation that the singer feels misunderstood or unheard in. The idea of throwing the apple into the sky and driving to the airport conveys a sense of frustration and a need for distance from the relationship dynamics that are causing tension. The repetition of the word "airport" emphasizes the urge to physically remove oneself from the emotional turmoil.


The mention of the apple turning yellow or green and the importance of keeping the seeds could suggest a desire for growth and understanding in the relationship, despite the frustrations expressed earlier. The anger and feeling of not being heard by the other person are evident in the lyrics, highlighting a disconnect and a struggle for communication. The singer feels like their words and emotions are not being acknowledged, leading to a sense of powerlessness.


The imagery of the apple being rotten to the core and the exploration of past influences hint at a deeper reflection on familial patterns and inherited traits that contribute to the current state of the relationship. The act of splitting the apple symbolically suggests a breaking down of barriers or defenses to reveal unsettling truths. The repeated refrain of "I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night" emphasizes a sense of urgency and a need to escape or find clarity through physical movement. The ongoing questioning of where the other person goes when feeling alone further emphasizes the theme of longing for understanding and connection in the relationship.

Apple


Charli XCX


I guess the apple don't fall far from the tree
'Cause I've been looking at you so long
Now I only see me
I wanna throw the apple into the sky
Feels like you never understand me
So I just wanna drive

To the airport, the airport
The airport, the airport

I guess the apple could turn yellow or green
I know there's lots of different nuances
To you and to me
I wanna grow the apple, keep all the seeds
But I can't help but get so angry
You don't listen to me
To the airport, the airport
The airport, the airport
The airport, the airport
The airport, the airport

I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night
I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night

I think the apple's rotten right to the core
From all the things passed down
From all the apples coming before
I split the apple down symmetrical lines
And what I find is kinda scary
Makes me just wanna drive
(Drive, drive, drive, dr-dr-dr-drive, drive, drive)
(I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night)
(I'm gonna drive, gonna drive all night)
(Drive, drive, drive, dr-dr-dr-drive, drive, drive)

I know where you're go
When you're feeling alone
When you're feeling alone, do you
I know where you're go
When you're feeling alone
When you're feeling alone, do you
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you, do you, do you)
(Do you, do you)
