Cooler Than Me
Ethan Fields Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you right under my arm
I used up all of my tricks, I hope that you like this
But you probably won't, you think you're cooler than me
You got designer shades just to hide your face
And you wear 'em around like you're cooler than me
And you never say "Hey" or remember my name
And it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me
You got your high brow, shoes on your feet
And you wear 'em around like it ain't sh-
But you don't know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise
I got you all figured out
You need everyone's eyes just to feel seen
Behind your make-up, nobody knows who you even are
Who do you think that you are?
If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you right under my arm
I used up all of my tricks, I hope that you like this
But you probably won't, you think you're cooler than me
You got designer shades just to hide your face
And you wear 'em around like you're cooler than me
And you never say "Hey" or remember my name
And it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me
You got your high brow, switchin' your walk
And you don't even look when you pass by
But you don't know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise
I got you all figured out
You need everyone's eyes just to feel seen
Behind your make-up, nobody knows who you even are
Who do you think that you are?
'Cause it's your scene
I got no doubts
And we all see
You got your head in the clouds
If I could write you a song, a song, a song, a song




A song, a song, a song, a song, a song, yeah
(A song, a song, a song)

Overall Meaning

"Cooler Than Me" by Ethan Fields is a playful song about a man who is frustrated with a woman who he perceives to be too entitled and self-important. The singer suggests that he has tried all of his usual tricks to win her over, but she remains unimpressed, believing herself to be too cool for him. He questions her superficiality, pointing out that she wears designer shades to hide her face and has a high-brow attitude that comes across as snobbish. Despite her attempts to be aloof, the singer claims that he has her all figured out and knows that she needs everyone's attention just to feel validation for her life. He also suggests that her make-up and expensive clothes may be a way of hiding her true identity since nobody knows who she really is.


The song's catchy beat and playful melody make it a catchy pop tune that appeals to a wide audience. At the same time, the lyrics provide a biting commentary on contemporary culture's obsession with image and status. The singer's frustration with the woman is palpable, but he also seems to have a sense of humor about the situation, which makes the song fun to listen to. Overall, "Cooler Than Me" is a clever critique of society's obsession with coolness, and it is an excellent representation of Ethan Fields's unique style of music that fuses pop, rock, and hip-hop influences.
