Where the Lines Overlap
Paramore Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Give me attention
I need it now
Too much distance
To measure it out, out loud
Chasing patterns across a personal map
And making pictures where the line overlap
Where the lines overlap
No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end yet but we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Call me over, and tell me how
Well you got so far
Never making a single sound
I'm not used to it
But I can learn
There's nothing to it
I've never been happier
Never been happier

No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end yet but we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Now I've got a feeling if I sing this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I've got a feeling if I sing this loud enough
You would sing it back to me

I've got a feeling
I've got a feeling
That you would sing it back to me
That you would sing it back to me

No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end yet but we already won
Oh, no, no one is as lucky as us




Is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Overall Meaning

The song "Where The Lines Overlap" by Paramore explores themes of connection and mutual understanding between two people who are separated by distance, but bridging the gap through a shared experience. The first verse expresses the need for attention and connection from the other person, despite the distance between them. The second verse goes on to describe the process of learning about the other person's journey and how they've come this far, and feeling grateful for the ability to share that experience. The chorus emphasizes the feeling of luck and gratitude for having found each other and the special connection they share even though they are still early on in their journey.


The bridge of the song serves as an invitation to the listener to join in and sing along, further emphasizing the sense of connection and shared experience that is at the heart of the song. The repeated line "I've got a feeling if I sing this loud enough, you would sing it back to me" is almost like a call-and-response, as if the singer is testing the listener's willingness to participate in the shared experience.


Overall, "Where The Lines Overlap" is a beautiful ode to the power of connection, even across distances and differences, and the ability of shared experiences to bring people closer together.


Line by Line Meaning

Give me attention
I need you to notice me


I need it now
I need your attention immediately


Too much distance
We are too far apart


To measure it out, out loud
It's difficult to express our distance vocally


Chasing patterns across a personal map
We're trying to find our way through life


And making pictures where the lines overlap
We're creating something beautiful where our lives intersect


Where the lines overlap
In the areas where our paths cross


No one is as lucky as us
We are fortunate to have each other


We're not at the end yet but we already won
We have achieved happiness before the end of our journey


Call me over, and tell me how
Can you come to me and explain something?


Well you got so far
I'm impressed with your accomplishments


Never making a single sound
You achieved success silently


I'm not used to it
I'm not accustomed to silent victories


But I can learn
I am willing to adapt


There's nothing to it
It's easy to adjust


I've never been happier
I am incredibly content


Now I've got a feeling if I sing this loud enough
I have a strong intuition that if I sing this song loudly


You would sing it back to me
You will respond by singing it back to me


No one (no one) is as lucky as us
We remain grateful for our good fortune


Is as lucky as us
We are uniquely fortunate


Is as lucky as us
We are so incredibly lucky


Is as lucky as us
No one else is as fortunate as us

[Verse 1]
Give me attention, I need it now
Too much distance to measure it out, out loud
Tracing patterns across a personal map
And making pictures where the lines overlap
Where the lines overlap

[Chorus]
No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end yet but we already won
No, no, no one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

[Verse 2]
Call me over, and tell me how
Well, you got so far
Never making a single sound
I'm not used to it
But I can learn
There's nothing to it
I've never been happier
Never been happier

[Chorus]
No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end yet but we already won
Oh, no, no one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us


[Verse 3]
Now I've got a feeling if I sang this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I've got a feeling if I sang this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I've got a feeling
I've got a feeling
That you would sing it back to me
That you would sing it back to me

[Chorus]
No one is as lucky as us
We're not at the end but, oh, we already won
Oh, no, no one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Give me attention
Me dê atenção

I need it now
Eu preciso disso agora

Too much distance
Distância demais

To measure it out (out loud)
Para se medir em voz alta


Tracing patterns
Traçando padrões

Across a personal map
Através de um mapa pessoal

And making pictures
E fazendo fotos

Where the lines overlap
Onde as linhas se sobrepõem

Where the lines overlap
Onde as linhas se sobrepõem


No one is as lucky as us
Ninguém é tão sortudo quanto nós

We're not at the end but
Nós não estamos no fim, mas

Oh we already won
Oh, nós já vencemos

Oh no, no one
Oh não, ninguém

Is as lucky as us
É tão sortudo quanto nós

Is as lucky as us
É tão sortudo quanto nós


Call me over
Me ligue

And tell me how
E me diga como

You got so far
Você chegou tão longe

Never making a single sound
Sem fazer nem um único som


I'm not used to it but I can learn
Não estou habituada a isso, mas eu posso aprender

There's nothing to it
Não é difícil

I've never been happier
Eu nunca estive tão feliz

I've never been happier
Eu nunca estive tão feliz


No one is as lucky as us
Ninguém é tão sortudo quanto nós

We're not at the end but
Nós não estamos no fim, mas

Oh we already won
Oh, nós já vencemos

Oh no, no one
Oh não, ninguém

Is as lucky as us
É tão sortudo quanto nós

Is as lucky as us
É tão sortudo quanto nós


Now I've got a feeling if I sang this loud enough, you
Agora eu tenho a sensação de que se eu cantar alto o bastante

Would sing it back to me
Você cantaria de volta pra mim

I've got a feeling if I sang this loud enough, you
Eu tenho a sensação de que se eu cantar alto o bastante

Will sing it back to me
Você vai cantar de volta pra mim


I've got a feeling
Eu tenho a sensação

I got a feeling
Eu tenho a sensação

That you, will sing it back to me
Que você, cantará de volta para mim

You, will sing it back to me
Você, cantará de volta para mim


No one is as lucky as us
Ninguém é tão sortudo quanto nós

We're not at the end but
Nós não estamos no fim, mas

Oh we already won
Oh, nós já vencemos

Oh no
Ninguém

No one is as lucky as us
Ninguém é tão sortudo quanto nós

Is as lucky as us
É tão sortudo quanto nós

Is as lucky as us
É tão sortudo quanto nós

Listen to this song and look at a old photo of you and be grateful to that version of you who pulled through everything and to the version of you now who is going to keep pushing and fighting through ❤ you are amazing and you’ve got this no matter what you are handling right now there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel and one day you will look back and you’ll be so grateful to who you are now for never giving up ❤
