Reality
Omar Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You've been telling me to come home tonight, but I think that I won't
I'll just stay here alone
And I know you didn't sleep alone that night, do you think that I'm dumb?
Tell me what have you become
I can see the lie through your eyes, and I haven't seen you around for a while
And I think you don't realize, all the things that you've done




Overall Meaning

"Reality" by Omar explores the singer's complex emotions in a strained relationship. The lyrics depict a conversation between two individuals, where one person is urging the other to come home, but the singer decides to stay alone instead. This suggests a growing detachment and possibly even resentment towards the other person. The mention of the other person not sleeping alone hints at potential infidelity, causing the singer to question their partner's loyalty. The line, "Tell me what have you become," further implies a change in the other person's behavior or character.


The lyrics also convey the singer's astute perception and intuition. They claim to see through the other person's lies, expressing a sense of betrayal and disappointment in the relationship. The line, "I haven't seen you around for a while," suggests a physical absence or a lack of presence from the other person, further deepening the singer's feelings of neglect and abandonment. Ultimately, the singer feels unheard and unacknowledged for the pain caused by their partner's actions.


Overall, "Reality" speaks to the complexities of relationships and the pain that can arise when trust is betrayed. It delves into themes of loneliness, deception, and the struggle to confront and accept the reality of a deteriorating connection.


Line by Line Meaning

You've been telling me to come home tonight, but I think that I won't
Despite your insistence on my return, I have decided to stay away and be on my own


I'll just stay here alone
I prefer to remain by myself in this situation


And I know you didn't sleep alone that night, do you think that I'm dumb?
I am aware that you were not alone that night, and I question your belief that I am foolish and unaware


Tell me what have you become
Please enlighten me about the person you have transformed into


I can see the lie through your eyes, and I haven't seen you around for a while
I can perceive the deception in your eyes, and it has been some time since I last encountered you


And I think you don't realize, all the things that you've done
I don't believe you comprehend the magnitude of your actions and their consequences
