M83- Kim & Jessie
M83 Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Kim and Jessie
They have a secret world in the twilight
Kids outside worlds
They are crazy about romance and illusion

Somebody lurks in the shadows
Somebody whispers
Somebody lurks in the shadows
Yeah yeah yeah

Dream dressed in blue
It's all they need for now
And forever

Chased by the moon
They shatter their whole peace
With singing

So we can drown our towns with voices
So possible to like it as one




And soon they'll be flying
Say of course, say you're lovely

Overall Meaning

The song "Kim & Jessie" by M83 is a tale of two lovers who have created their own secret world. In this world, they are able to escape the realities of the outside world and indulge in their own "romance and illusion." The use of the words "twilight" and "moon" creates a sense of magic, and the dreamy melody supports the idea of the lovers being in their own fairytale.


However, it's not all pleasant in their world. The lyrics "Somebody lurks in the shadows, somebody whispers" hint towards a feeling of unease or danger. The lovers seem to know that their world is delicate, and they're willing to shatter their own peace as they escape the reality of the world outside.


The final stanza provides hope for the lovers' future. The lyrics "So we can drown our towns with voices, so possible to like it as one, and soon they'll be flying, say of course, say you're lovely" provides a sense of unity and joy that comes with being in love. The dream dressed in blue mentioned earlier could represent a feeling of tranquility and contentment in their relationship.

M83,

My brother died yesterday. This song is from one of his favorite albums. He would always leave a CD copy of Saturdays=Youth in the car. Thank you for making music that my brother enjoyed.

@SelenaSea

❤ So sorry you lost your brother. 1:02 "It's all they need for now. And forever."

@RandomSkyeRoses

RIP to your brother

@andrew_russia_9073

Everything's going to be all right! Don't be discouraged! We're all with you!

Losing a loved one is the hardest pain a human goes through, even harder than one's own death. Just take it one day at a time and be near people as much as you can. Everybody dies, it's just about learning to hold onto the person in a way that makes them close, but healthy enough to move on with your life.

I love this song, it gives me such melancholic vibes. It reminds me of my childhood in the 80s and, sometimes, I get teary when I listen to it..

@burningdust

Yes, makes me miss the 80’s as well, it’s like I’ve been away from home for far too long

@JustinLHopkins

It’s incredible how powerful music can be.

@CoyoteManW

Most surreal scene in Better Call Saul so far
