July
Katatonia Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You come clean
Waves collide now
Defenseless numb arms
And no voice of reason

So how come you invited me too
You knew I wanted you
You glide above
So this night belongs to you
I know this isn't through
Are you dead to love

I see the bright lights
It's the month of July
It's violent here
Why have you left me
If only you could stay
And keep me in
It's violent here
Why did you run from me

Heat
Night devour me




Repeat

Overall Meaning

The song "July" by Katatonia is a melancholic piece that deals with heartbreak and the feelings of confusion that come with it. The opening lines, "You come clean, waves collide now, defenseless numb arms, and no voice of reason" depict a feeling of vulnerability and the realization of the end of a relationship. The singer seems to be in a state of shock and unable to comprehend what has happened.


The chorus "It's violent here, why have you left me, if only you could stay, and keep me in, it's violent here, why did you run from me" shows the desperation and confusion felt by the singer who is left alone in the aftermath of a breakup. Despite the end of the relationship, there is still a desire for the partner's presence and a longing to stay together.


The repetition of the phrase "repeat" at the end of the song itself creates a sense of cyclical nature of pain and despair, highlighting the singer's inability to move on.
