Homesick
Dua Lipa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Here, where the sky's falling
I'm covered in blue
I'm running and I'm crawling
Fighting for you
When the rain stops, then, darling, what will I do?
And I know I go all in, but why do I?

You give me a reason
Something to believe in
I know, I know, I know
You give me a meaning
Something I can breathe in
I know, I know, I know
It's a bittersweet feeling
Longing and I'm leaving
I go, I go, I go
But I wish I was there with you
Oh, I wish I was there with you

There's a crack in my window
A bird in my room
Angels all over
That watch over you
When I'm walking on water
All my dreams have come true
Still, nothing means nothing
Without you, you

You give me a reason
Something to believe in
I know, I know, I know
You give me a meaning
Something I can breathe in
I know, I know, I know
It's a bittersweet feeling
Longing and I'm leaving
I go, I go, I go
Tell my heart to lie
But I know deep inside it's true
That I wish I was there with you
That I wish I was there with you
Oh, I wish I was there with you

You give me a reason
Something to believe in
I know, I know, I know
You give me a meaning
Something I can breathe in
I know, I know, I know
It's a bittersweet feeling
Longing and I'm leaving
I go, I go, I go
Tell my heart to lie
But I know deep inside it's true
That I wish I was there with you




That I wish I was there with you
Oh, I wish I was there with you

Overall Meaning

The song "Homesick" by Dua Lipa is a reflection of long-distance relationships, and the feeling of wanting to be with one's partner, even though the distance between them feels insurmountable. The opening lines set the tone of the song with a sense of disillusionment and despair. The singer is covered in blue, representing the sadness and the longing for the person they can't be with. The chorus then transitions to a sense of hopefulness, with the singer acknowledging that even though they are far apart, their partner gives them something to believe in and a reason to keep going. However, this bittersweet feeling is constantly being haunted by a sense of loss and defeat.


In the second verse, we are presented with more imagery of the singer's emotional state. The crack in the window represents a sense of vulnerability, as they are letting their emotions seep through the cracks. The bird and angels, on the other hand, could represent a sense of hope and freedom, as they provide companionship and guidance in their absence. Throughout the song, the singer acknowledges that even though their partner is not physically there with them, they continue to shape their world in profound ways.


Overall, "Homesick" is a song that captures the complex feelings that arise in long-distance relationships. Though the distance may create a sense of loss, the hope and love shared between the two individuals keep them going forward.
