Instant Crush
Daft Punk Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I didn't want to be the one to forget
I thought of everything I'd never regret
A little time with you is all that I get
That's all we need because it's all we can take
One thing I never see the same when you're 'round
I don't believe in him, his lips on the ground
I wanna take you to that place in the Roche
But no one gives us any time anymore
He asks me once if I'd look in on his dog
You made an offer for it, then you ran off
I got this picture of us kids in my head
And all I hear is the last thing that you said

I listened to your problems, now listen to mine
I didn't want to anymore, oh

And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away?
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door
And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away?
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend

Some more again

It didn't matter what they wanted to see
He thought he saw someone that looked just like me
The summer memory that just never dies
We worked too long and hard to give it no time
He sees right through me, it's so easy with lies
Cracks in the road that I would try and disguise
He runs the scissors at the seam in the wall
He cannot break it down or else he would fall
One thousand lonely stars
Hiding in the cold
Take it
I don't wanna sing anymore

I listened to your problems, now listen to mine
I didn't want to anymore, oh

And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away?
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door
And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away?
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a

I don't understand
Don't get upset
I'm not with you
We're swimming around
It's all I do
When I'm with you

And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away?
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door
And we will never be alone again
'Cause it doesn't happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away?
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go




So I chained myself to a friend
'Cause I know it unlocks like a door

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Daft Punk's "Instant Crush" explore the complexities of a past relationship that the singer can't quite let go of. The first verse sets the scene, with the singer reflecting on all the things they thought of and did to ensure that they wouldn't forget their past lover. The chorus talks about how they'll never be alone again, and seems to be a kind of lament, as if the singer is aware that they can never go back to the way things were. The second verse is more introspective, with the singer reflecting on their own inability to communicate clearly. They seem to have chained themselves to their friend as a way of avoiding the uncomfortable reality of their emotions.


The bridge of the song is a bit tricky to unpack. It starts with the line "I don't understand" and seems to be a reflection on the singer's current state of mind. They can't quite put into words how they're feeling or what they want, and this is causing them to feel upset. The next lines, "I'm not with you / We're swimming around / It's all I do / When I'm with you" suggest that the singer is struggling to move on and is constantly reminded of their past relationship.


Overall, the lyrics to "Instant Crush" are introspective and melancholy. The singer seems to be going through a difficult time, and is grappling with the complexities of their emotions. The song is a beautiful exploration of the human condition and the messiness of life and love.


Line by Line Meaning

I didn't want to be the one to forget
I didn't want to forget about you


I thought of everything I'd never regret
I carefully considered what would cause no regrets


A little time with you is all that I get
I treasure the limited time we have together


That's all we need because it's all we can take
We don't need more than what we have, it's enough


One thing I never see the same when you're 'round
Your presence changes my perspective on things


I don't believe in him, his lips on the ground
I don't have faith in someone who is weak and defeated


I wanna take you to that place in the Roche
I want to share a special experience with you


But no one gives us any time anymore
We have limited time together and it's hard to find


He asks me once if I'd look in on his dog
He asked me for a favor to take care of his dog


You made an offer for it, then you ran off
You offered to help him but didn't follow through


I got this picture of us kids in my head
I have a happy memory of us as children together


And all I hear is the last thing that you said
I can't stop thinking about the last thing you told me


It didn't matter what they wanted to see
I didn't care about others' expectations


He thought he saw someone that looked just like me
He mistook someone else for me


The summer memory that just never dies
I have a vivid memory of a summer that will always be with me


We worked too long and hard to give it no time
We put in so much effort to not spend any time together


He sees right through me, it's so easy with lies
He can see the truth behind my lies so easily


Cracks in the road that I would try and disguise
I tried to hide the flaws in myself


He runs the scissors at the seam in the wall
He tries to break through the barrier between us


He cannot break it down or else he would fall
He can't break it down without facing the consequences


One thousand lonely stars
There are countless lonely people in the world


Hiding in the cold
They're hard to find because they're hiding and isolated


Now I thought about what I wanna say
I took the time to consider my words


But I never really know where to go
I don't know where to direct my thoughts or feelings


So I chained myself to a friend
I rely on a friend to help me sort through my emotions


Kinda counted on you being a friend
I had hoped that you would be there for me as a friend


Can I give it up or give it away?
Can I let go or give away my emotional burden?


I don't understand
I'm confused


Don't get upset
Please don't be angry with me


I'm not with you
I'm not physically present with you right now


We're swimming around
We're lost and confused in life


It's all I do
It's all I have the energy for


And we will never be alone again
We'll always have each other's company from now on


'Cause it doesn't happen every day
This is a special and rare occurrence


Can I give it up or give it away?
Can I let go or give away my emotional burden?
