Overall Meaning

The lyrics to M83's song Couleurs are both dreamy and emotional in their essence. The repeated phrase "chasing colors in my tears" showcases a deep sense of introspection and self-reflection, as if the singer in the song is trying to find meaning within their own pain and struggles. This is further emphasized by the line "I need yourself" which could either mean that the singer is seeking validation and reassurance from themselves, or is asking for their true self to come forth.

The imagery of colors in tears could be interpreted as an attempt to find beauty within sadness or pain. It may also represent the overwhelming emotions that come with experiencing something intense and deeply personal. The repetition of the phrase emphasizes the cyclical nature of emotions and the need for self-discovery and introspection. The song overall has an ethereal quality to it, emphasizing the introspective nature of the lyrics.
