Lucid Dreams
Juice WRLD Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No, no, no, no

I still see your shadows in my room
Can't take back the love that I gave you
It's to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you, so I must replace you (oh)
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listening to my heart instead of my head
You found another one, but
I am the better one
I won't let you forget me
I still see your shadows in my room
Can't take back the love that I gave you
It's to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listening to my heart instead of my head
You found another one, but
I am the better one
I won't let you forget me

You left me falling and landing inside my grave
I know that you want me dead
I take prescriptions to make me feel a-okay
I know it's all in my head

I have these lucid dreams where I can't move a thing
Thinking of you in my bed
You were my everything
Thoughts of a wedding ring
Now I'm just better off dead
I'll do it over again
I didn't want it to end
I watched it blow in the wind
I should've listened to my friends
Leave this shit in the past
But I want it to last
You were made outta plastic (fake)
I was tangled up in your drastic ways
Who knew evil girls have the prettiest face?
You gave me a heart that was full of mistakes
I gave you my heart and you made heart break

You made my heart break
You made my heart ache (I still see your shadows in my room)
You made my heart break
You made my heart ache (can't take back the love that I gave you)
You made my heart break (were made outta plastic, fake)
You made my heart ache (I still see your shadows in my room)
You made my heart break again (I was tangled up your drastic ways)
(Who knew evil girls have the prettiest face?)

I still see your shadows in my room
Can't take back the love that I gave you
It's to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listening to my heart instead of my head
You found another one, but
I am the better one
I won't let you forget me
I still see your shadows in my room
Can't take back the love that I gave you
It's to the point where I love and I hate you
And I cannot change you so I must replace you (oh)
Easier said than done
I thought you were the one
Listening to my heart instead of my head
You found another one, but
I am the better one
I won't let you forget me

Leave this shit in the past, but I want it to last
You were made outta plastic (fake)
I was tangled up in your drastic ways
Who knew evil girls have the prettiest face?

Easier said than done
I thought you were-




(Instead of my head, you found another)
I won't let you forget me

Overall Meaning

In Juice WRLD's song Lucid Dreams, he talks about the pain and frustration of a broken relationship. He starts by saying that even though he has moved on from the person, he can still see their shadows in his room, indicating that their memories are still haunting him. He acknowledges that he can't change the person and, therefore, must replace them, but it's easier said than done. He remembers believing that they were 'the one,' listening to his heart instead of his head, and is unable to forget them. Sadly he has to face the reality that they have found someone else.


He goes on to say that this person hurt him so much that it feels like he is falling and landing inside his grave. He knows that they wish him dead, and he has to take prescriptions to be okay. When asleep, he has lucid dreams where he can't move and thinks of them in his bed, and they were his everything. He even thought about proposing to them, but now he wishes he was better off dead. He regrets the decision and wishes he had listened to his friends who warned him about this person. She was made of plastic, and he was trapped by her drastic ways. It turns out that evil girls have the prettiest face. She gave him a heart full of mistakes, and he gave his away and broke.
