Ruin Me
Jazz Morley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Keeping it together by a thread
One tiny wire left
Connect me up to something
Oh God, just give me something
You said after two you're no good
What kind of "no good"
Did you have in mind?
Hurt feelings
Not used to this
How could you ruin me?
I'm cold and
You're good at this
How could you ruin me?
'Cause my hunger is starting to rise up
The numbness is shifting
Oh, there may be good on the horizon
For a girl like me
Cold comes and laugh at the darkness
Where you're always hiding
Oh, how could you ruin me?
Keeping it together by a thread
Not many pieces left
I met you on the way down
And now I want to stay down
You do things that I could only dream of
Hurt feelings
Not used to this
How could you ruin me?
I'm cold and
You're good at this
How could you ruin me?
'Cause my hunger is starting to rise up
The numbness is shifting
Oh, there may be good on the horizon
For a girl like me
Cold comes and laugh at the darkness
Where you're always hiding
Oh, how could you ruin me?
'Cause my hunger is starting to rise up
The numbness is shifting
Oh, there may be good on the horizon
For a girl like me
Cold comes and laugh at the darkness
Where you're always hiding
Oh, how could you ruin me?
Hurt feelings
Not used to this
I could let you ruin me
I'm cold and




You're good at this
Oh, I could let you ruin me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Jazz Morley’s song “Ruin Me” describe a sense of desperation and vulnerability in a relationship that has left the singer feeling wounded and exposed. The image of “keeping it together by a thread” suggests a fragile emotional state that is barely being maintained. The singer is reaching out for something, anything to hold on to, as they feel themselves slipping away. This is reflected in the repeated plea to be “connected up to something” and the desperate plea to God to “just give me something”.


The line “you said after two you’re no good” implies a reference to alcohol, suggesting that the relationship may be dysfunctional and one party may be relying too heavily on drink. It’s clear that the singer is hurting, and they are struggling to deal with emotions that they are “not used to”. The repeated question “how could you ruin me?” suggests a sense of betrayal, as if the singer trusted the other party to take care of them, and that trust has been abused. Despite the hurt, there is a glimmer of hope suggested by the line “there may be good on the horizon”, but it remains to be seen if that hope will be realized.


Overall, the lyrics to “Ruin Me” are a powerful reflection on the emotional complexities of relationships and the way in which they can leave us feeling exposed and vulnerable. Morley’s delivery of the lyrics is plaintive and heartfelt, making it clear just how deeply the singer is feeling these emotions.
