Malibu Nights
Lany Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There's no reason, there's no rhyme
I found myself blindsided by
A feeling that I've never known
I'm dealing with it on my own
Phone is quiet, walls are bare
I drink myself to sleep, who cares?
No one even has to know
I'm dealing with it on my own

I got way too much time to be this hurt
Somebody help, it's getting worse
What do you do with a broken heart?
Once the light fades, everything is dark
Way too much whiskey in my blood
I feel my body giving up
Can I hold on for another night?
What do I do with all this time? Yeah

Heavy thoughts when it gets late
Put me in a fragile state
I wish I wasn't going home
Dealing with it on my own
I'm praying but it's not enough
I'm done, I don't believe in love
Learning how to let it go
Dealing with it on my own

I got way too much time to be this hurt
Somebody help, it's getting worse
What do you do with a broken heart?
Once the light fades, everything is dark
Way too much whiskey in my blood
I feel my body giving up
Can I hold on for another night?
What do I do with all this time? Yeah

I drive circles under street lights
Nothing seems to clear my mind
I can't forget
Get this out my head
So I drive, chasing Malibu nights
Nothing seems to heal my mind
I can't forget

I got way too much time to be this hurt
Somebody help, it's getting worse
What do you do with a broken heart?
Once the light fades, everything is dark
Way too much whiskey in my blood
I feel my body giving up
Can I hold on for another night?
What do I do with all this time? Yeah

I drive circles under street lights
Nothing seems to clear my mind
I can't forget
Get this out my head
So I drive, chasing Malibu nights
Nothing seems to heal my mind
I can't forget
(Get this out my head, so)




I drive, chasing Malibu nights
Hey, hey, na-na, oh yeah

@marylenebalbas2783

This song doesn’t just address heartbreak from a loved one. People who are fighting their own demons can really relate with this.

“I feel my body giving up”

I do want to just give up yet i still want to be saved.

“Can I hold on for another night”

You see, people with depression tries hard to battle their struggles. People with depression who finally gives up are those people who were not able to find the help they desperately need.
