Call My Name
Jay Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Say my name, say it loud
Say it just to me
Say it once, say it twice
But don't disappear
Cause I say and I pray
That you always be the one

Always swear, always swear
That it is so true
That I miss your sweet kiss
And the rendezvous
Cause I say and I pray
That you always be the one

Say it again, I miss you baby
Say it again, I drive you crazy
Say it again, please stay with me

Cos, if you will call, call my name
Baby this love will never end
I cannot ignore, I love you more
More and more, oh oh
Cos, if you will call my name
Oh, again, again and again
I cannot ignore, I love you more
More and more

Oh, I know, oh I know
That my time will come
And I pray just to God I miss you like the sun
Cause I know just for sure
That you always be the one
It's my time, it's the place
Where I wanna go
Take this chance for romance
Oh, I know it'd grow
Cause I know, oh I know
That you always make me strong

Say it again, I miss you baby
Say it again, I drive you crazy
Say it again, please stay with me

Cos, if you will call, call my name
Baby this love will never end
I cannot ignore, I love you more
More and more, oh oh
Cos, if you will call my name
Oh, again, again and again
I cannot ignore, I love you more
More and more, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

Cos, if you will call, call my name
Baby this love will never end
I cannot ignore, I love you more
More and more, oh oh
Cos, if you will call my name
Oh, again, again and again




I cannot ignore, I love you more
More and more

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Jay's song Call My Name are reflective and emotional, as the singer navigates through the themes of loss, grief, and acceptance. The opening line sets the somber tone, as the storm dies and a younger brother calls for his mother.

The "cloud rains tears" could refer to the heavy emotions felt during grieving, but with time, the storm clears and the mother's memory is allowed to shine.


The singer still sees his father "over the river" but instead of drowning in the grief and longing, he pours a little his way and shows him a way forward. The calm sea signifies acceptance, but there is still a yearning to bring back the storm inside. The repeated line "Won't be here very long, I know where I should be now" could mean that the singer has come to terms with mortality and is ready to move on, but not without first cherishing the memories of the past.


Overall, the lyrics of Call My Name are touching, poignant and speak to universal emotions that many listeners can relate to. It is a song about acceptance, but also a celebration of the bond shared between loved ones.
