pink skies
Lany Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Thrift store fashion
Imperfect tattoos
Taking showers
Minus shampoo

You are my favorite everything
Been telling girls that since I was 16
Shut up, I love you
You're my best friend

Get you under pink skies, I know exactly where we should go
'Cause I love the way your green eyes mix with that Malibu indigo
Talkin' under pink skies, I think our hearts are starting to show
That it's better, you and I, under pink skies

Underwear, I kinda care
Wanna look good for you
British bomb, you turn me on
No matter what ya do

You are my favorite everything
Been telling you that since 2015
Shut up, I love you
You're my best friend

Get you under pink skies, I know exactly where we should go
'Cause I love the way your green eyes mix with that Malibu indigo
Talkin' under pink skies, I think our hearts are starting to show
That it's better, you and I, under pink skies

We can work it out
You and I are meant to be together
This is how it's supposed to feel
I'm in love with how this feels

Get you under pink skies, I know exactly where we should go
'Cause I love the way your green eyes mix with that Malibu indigo
Talkin' under pink skies, I think our hearts are starting to show
That it's better, you and I, under pink skies

Get you under pink skies, I know exactly where we should go
'Cause I love the way your green eyes mix with that Malibu indigo




Talkin' under pink skies, I think our hearts are starting to show
That it's better, you and I, under pink skies

Overall Meaning

The opening lines of the song, "Thrift store fashion, imperfect tattoos, taking showers, minus shampoo," portray a laid-back and carefree attitude towards life. The singer is someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously, as evidenced by their disregard for conventional grooming habits.

The line "Been telling girls that since I was 16" suggests the singer has been in love for a long time and has finally found the one they want to be with.


As the song progresses, the chorus becomes the focal point, with the phrase "Get you under pink skies" being repeated several times. The imagery of "pink skies" invokes a sense of magic and romance; it creates an atmosphere of love and companionship. The singer is describing the perfect setting for them and their partner, and they know "exactly where we should go." The reference to "Malibu indigo" suggests that the song is set on a beach where the sky is pink at sunset, and the ocean takes on a deep blue hue. The chorus ends with the singer suggesting that it's better to be with their partner "under pink skies."


The second verse continues with the same carefree tone, with the singer talking about their choice of underwear and their partner's British accent.
