NITROUS
Joji Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Oh) understand, girl, I'm out of sight
Turn the other side, I don't want no stripes
Got my insides loud like motorcycles
Girl, don't notice it, I don't notice it
And the love make me wanna sing, sing
And my heart make me wanna sing, sing
And the pain make me wanna blink, blink
But I'm in a Rover, I won't feel a thing

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Guess I've been awake, thinking 'bout our fate
Fighting two devils, blood in my toothpaste
Spit into the night, thought it would be nice
You just make me nervous, you were cold as ice (you're cold)
I was in your town, drivin' eighty miles
Do not even notice, do not even frown
And how could I deserve this, I'm never slowin' down (never slowin' down)
Don't love me at the surface, love me like it's now (love me, love me, love me, love me)

(Oh) understand, girl, I'm out of sight
Turn the other side, I don't want no stripes
Got my insides loud like motorcycles
Girl, don't notice it, I don't notice it
And the love make me wanna sing, sing
And my heart make me wanna sing, sing




And the pain make me wanna blink, blink
But I'm in a Rover, I won't feel a thing

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Joji's song "NITROUS" portray a complex emotional state of the singer who is in a troubled relationship. He is torn apart between his emotions of love and pain, and the desire to escape from it all. The opening lines, "Understand, girl, I'm out of sight, To the other side, I don't want no stripes," suggest that the singer is trying to distance himself from the girl in question, perhaps because the relationship has become burdensome or toxic. The mention of "stripes" could be referring to prison stripes, indicating that the singer doesn't want to end up imprisoned in a destructive relationship. The line "Got my insides loud like motorcycles" suggests that the singer's emotions are in turmoil and are hard to ignore.


Throughout the song, the singer tries to find solace in love, high, and avoidance. He says that the love makes him want to sing but also creates pain that makes him want to blink. However, he is avoiding the pain by being in a Rover and not feeling a thing. The line "Fighting two devils, blood in my toothpaste" suggests that the singer is struggling with two demons or conflicting emotions, and the mention of blood in the toothpaste may allude to the stress and difficulty of the situation.


In conclusion, the lyrics of "NITROUS" by Joji delve into the complex and intense emotional experiences of a protagonist who is grappling with a troubled relationship, trying to hold onto love while also escaping from the pain and turmoil.

มอเตอร์ไซค์
ฉันแค่มอเตอร์ไซค์
ได้แค่พาเธอไป
ดีแค่บางเวลา
เธอเรียกใช้เร็วไว
แต่ทิ้งไว้นมนาน
ฉันแค่มอเตอร์ไซค์
ฉันแค่มอเตอร์ไซค์

เธอมาขึ้น แล้วสักพักเธอก็ลง
จอดทิ้งไว้ ไม่สนใจไม่ใยดี
ฉันมีค่าเพียงแค่ตอนเธอต้องการ
จอดฉันไว้นานๆเถอะ จอดฉันไว้นานๆเถอะ

บึน บึน บึน บึน บึน x3

เธอมาเพราะต้องการ มาเพราะมันจำเป็น
ไม่ได้คิดถึงกัน อย่างฉันคิดถึงเธอ
เธอไม่ต้องมาจับ เธอไม่ต้องมามอง
ฉันไม่ให้เธอขึ้นหรอก ลองแล้วไม่ได้ครอง
ขี่เสร็จเธอก็จอด จอดแบบเธอไม่แคร์
ไม่เคยมาดูแล หรือนั่งเฝ้าทั้งวันเลย
ไม่ได้คิดถึงกัน มีค่าเพียงจำเป็น
ฉันไม่ให้เธอขึ้นหรอก ฉันไม่ให้เธอไป
มอเตอร์ไซค์ มอเตอร์

มอเตอร์ไซค์
ฉันแค่มอเตอร์ไซค์
ได้แค่พาเธอไป
ดีแค่บางเวลา
เธอเรียกใช้เร็วไว
แต่ทิ้งไว้นมนาน
ฉันแค่มอเตอร์ไซค์
ฉันแค่มอเตอร์ไซค์

เธอมาขึ้น แล้วสักพักเธอก็ลง
จอดทิ้งไว้ ไม่สนใจไม่ใยดี
ฉันมีค่าเพียงแค่ตอนเธอต้องการ
จอดฉันไว้นานๆเถอะ จอดฉันไว้นานๆเถอะ

LETRA

[Refrão]
Oh, entenda garota, estou fora de vista
Por outro lado, eu não quero listras
Tenho minhas entranhas barulhentas como motocicletas
Menina, não percebo, não percebo
E o amor me faz querer cantar, cantar
E o alto me faz querer cantar, cantar
E a dor me faz querer piscar, piscar
Mas estou em um Rover, não vou sentir nada

[Pós-refrão]
Ei ei ei ei
Ei ei ei ei
Ei ei ei ei

[Versículo]
Acho que estive acordado pensando em nosso destino
Lutando contra dois demônios, sangue na minha pasta de dente
Cuspiu noite adentro (Ooh), pensei que seria bom (Ooh)
Você só me deixa nervoso, você estava frio como gelo (você está frio)
Eu estava em sua cidade, dirigindo oitenta milhas
Nem perceba, nem franze a testa
E como eu poderia merecer isso? Eu nunca estou diminuindo a velocidade (nunca diminuindo a velocidade)
Não me ame na superfície, me ame como agora (me ame, me ame, me ame, me ame)

[Refrão]
Oh, entenda garota, estou fora de vista
Por outro lado, eu não quero listras
Tenho minhas entranhas barulhentas como motocicletas
Menina, não percebo, não percebo
E o amor me faz querer cantar, cantar
E o alto me faz querer cantar, cantar
E a dor me faz querer piscar, piscar
Mas estou em um Rover, não vou sentir nada
