Cayendo
Frank Ocean Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No hablará de mí
Ni hablará de esto
Lo que él quiere de ti
Yo no se lo negaría
Si esto no me ha partido
Ya no me partiré nunca
Si puedo soportar lo que siento
¿Por qué me estoy cayendo?

You stood me up, you laid me down
You know too much, I can't be proud
I still really, really love you, yes I do
When I still really, really love you, like I do
If you won't, then I will
If you can't, then I will
Is it love to keep it from you?

No hablará de mí
Ni hablará de esto
Lo que él quiere de ti
Yo no se lo negaría
Si esto no me ha partido
Ya no me partiré nunca
Si puedo soportar lo que siento
¿Por qué me estoy cayendo?
¿Acaso voy cayendo?

You stood me up, you laid me down




You know too much (too much), I can't be proud
I still really, really love you, yes I do

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Frank Ocean's song Cayendo are introspective and poignant. The first stanza talks about the fear of being forgotten and being replaced by someone else in the person's affections. The line 'All that he needs from you loving' highlights the fact that the singer is aware that what he cannot provide, someone else can. This insecurity is further emphasized in the line 'You know too much, I can't be proud,' implying that the singer's vulnerabilities have been exposed, and this leads to feelings of shame and inadequacy.


The second stanza repeats the line 'I still really, really want you,' emphasizing the singer's yearning for the subject of the song. The lines 'You want too much, I can't be proud' indicate that the singer feels like he cannot keep up with the demands of the relationship or meet the expectations of the other person, adding to the feelings of insecurity and inadequacy. In the final line in Spanish, the singer declares that if this did not break him, nothing else will, indicating a sense of resignation, acceptance, and moving on from the relationship.
