Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Honey, the stars keep on calling my name
But don't worry, I've told you again and again
When I'm down, you're always the first one to know
Skipping town, I'll take you wherever I go

And I just wanna go
I just wanna go
Honey, this town's really taking it's toll
But don't worry, I'm all through with feeling this old
When I'm down, you're always the first on my mind
Skipping town, let's get out and see what we find

'Cause I just wanna go
I just wanna go




I just wanna go
I just wanna go

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Mac DeMarco's song The Stars Keep On Calling My Name portray a sense of wanderlust and a longing to escape the monotony of everyday life.

The line "Honey, this town's really taking its toll" suggests a dissatisfaction with routine and a desire for something more fulfilling. However, the repeated assurance to the person they're addressing, "don't worry, I've told you again and again," suggests that they are aware of the comfort and security that person provides, even as they yearn for something beyond it.


Overall, The Stars Keep On Calling My Name is a song that speaks to the desire for adventure and escape that is a fundamental human impulse, while also acknowledging the importance of the people who support and sustain us in our everyday lives.
