Go!
M83 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You, you, you, meet me, me, me
At this station, station
Can't, can't, can't, get used, used, used
To patience, patience
Wish time, this time
Could just be a bit shortened, shortened
Be-be-be-be-tween u-u-us
Six million seasons

Gotta run, gotta run, gotta run
And make it or die

Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two

I loved, I loved, I fell, I fell
Ran away, ran away, ran away, ran away
Gotta say, gotta say, gotta say, gotta say
I'm done, I'm done, I'm done without you
I loved, I loved, I fell, I fell
Ran away, ran away, ran away, ran away
Gotta say, gotta say, gotta say, gotta say
I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming for you

F-F-Feels like we-we-we'll be frozen, frozen
N-N-Need you to-to tell me "je t'aime", "je t'aime"
Full speed cause we gotta look to discover, cover
G-G-Get me j-j-just a little closer

Gotta run, gotta run, gotta run
And make it or die

Eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two

I loved, I loved, I fell, I fell
Ran away, ran away, ran away, ran away
Gotta say, gotta say, gotta say, gotta say
I'm done, I'm done, I'm done without you
I loved, I loved, I fell, I fell
Ran away, ran away, ran away, ran away
Gotta say, gotta say, gotta say, gotta say
I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming for you

I'm gonna come, just meet me there
Gonna come straight away
It all starts with we
Gonna find you in the night
Gonna make it or die
Gonna come straight away
It all starts with we
Gonna find you
I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming for you

I loved, I loved
Ran away, ran away
Gotta say, gotta say
I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming for you
I loved, I loved, I fell, I fell
Ran away, ran away, ran away, ran away




Gotta say, gotta say, gotta say, gotta say
I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming for you

Overall Meaning

The opening verses of "Go!" by M83 ft. Mai Lan are a metaphorical representation of the urgency and impatience of two people in love. The repeated "you, you, you" and "me, me, me" serves to emphasize that the focus of the song is on these two, what they feel for each other, and what they want to do for each other. The setting of the station further emphasizes this hinting at a journey, possibly for one of them to catch a train or bus or meet up with the other at a particular location. The triplet "can't, can't, can't/ get used, used, used/ to patience, patience" insinuates that they both are restless and that time is moving too slowly. The idea of wanting to shorten the time between them seems significant, and almost as if it's a plea to the universe to make time speed up.
The chorus drives the point home even further with the lyrics "gotta run, gotta run, gotta run/ and make it or die" revealing that they are willing to do whatever it takes to be together. The countdown from "eight" to "two" mirrors the ticking clock, and the sense of urgency is palpable as they sing about running towards each other. The following verse expresses the writer's desire to be close to their beloved, with the use of the jarring "f-f-feels" as an onomatopoeia for the jitteriness of their emotions. The song ends on a note of hope as the singer announces that they are coming for the object of their love.
