Becoming
Milky Chance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Only jealousy is blind
But there's a light that brings me back
It takes me to the right horizon
Takes me where I want to be

Blood is running down the river
I feel like fond of destruction
Is destiny playing a dirty trick on you
When you where not the one you wanted to be

Can't you see the pain inside
Over the years we can hide
How long will you be able to stand yourself
If you think no one is stopping you

Only jealousy is blind
But there's a light that brings me back




It takes me to the right horizon
Takes me where I want to be

Overall Meaning

The song Becoming by Milky Chance is a reflective and introspective piece, with a clear message about the power of jealousy and the importance of finding one's own path. The lyrics suggest that jealousy can be a blinding force, preventing us from seeing clearly and leading us down paths that are not right for us. However, there is also a sense of hope and optimism, as the singer describes a light that guides him back to the right horizon - a metaphor for finding his true path in life.


The line "Blood is running down the river/I feel like fond of destruction" suggests that the singer feels overwhelmed by the destructive nature of jealousy and its impact on those around him. This may also be related to the idea of fate and destiny, as the singer questions whether life is playing a dirty trick on him by leading him down a path he didn't choose for himself. Despite this struggle, the chorus reminds us that there is always a way back to where we want to be, as long as we follow the light and listen to our inner voice.


Overall, the lyrics of Becoming are an honest and heartfelt reflection on the challenges of finding one's way in life, and the importance of ignoring external pressures and instead following our own inner light to reach our true destination.
