Thinking 'Bout You
Dua Lipa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

3 A.M. and my neighbors hate me
Music blasting, shaking these walls
This time Mary Jane won't save me
I've been working later, I've been drinking stronger
I've been smoking deeper but the memories won't stop

I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't get high, I can't get by, I can't get through
I can't stop thinking 'bout you

Like poison coursing through me
So clear my vision is blurred
The haze won't put my mind at ease
I've been sleeping later, I've been breathing stronger
I've been digging deeper but the memories won't stop

I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't get high, I can't get by, I can't get through
I can't stop thinking 'bout you

I want you all
Say it before you run out of time
I want you all
Say it before it's too late
I want you all
Say what I am feeling now
I want you all
Waiting is insane

I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't get high, I can't get by, I can't get through
I can't stop thinking 'bout you
I can't stop thinking 'bout you




I can't get high, I can't get by, I can't get through
I can't stop thinking 'bout you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Dua Lipa's "Thinking 'Bout You" talks about the pain and struggle of moving on from a past relationship. The song describes the singer's struggle to stop thinking about an ex-partner who left her with painful memories. The lyrics suggest that the singer is trying different methods such as drinking, smoking, and loud music to distract herself, but nothing works as the memories persist. The pain experienced is compared to poison that courses through the singer, making her vision blurry and her mind restless. The chorus emphasizes that the singer's obsession with her ex-partner is so strong that she can't function properly and get through life without continuously thinking about them.


The second verse reveals that the singer has been trying to cope by sleeping and breathing more deeply, hoping it will help calm her mind. However, the singer remains stuck in the past, with the memories still plaguing her thoughts. The final verse of the song is a plea to her ex-partner to let them know how she feels before it's too late. The singer acknowledges that waiting around for something to happen is driving her insane, and she needs closure in order to move on.


Overall, the song seems to be about the process of healing from a past relationship, and the difficulties that come with letting go of someone who once meant everything to you.

Even country would be great

@thegoatriderfromthesands2646

I mean it, nothing more empowering than overloaded strings on some raw amping. It distorts itself! Please, country, Dua, please! You can keep the cello in it too as usual, dang, you love that thing, I've heard country with cello, bluegrass, Cajun and Gospel, with bowed cello
