How To Be Lonely
Rita Ora Lyrics


He'd tell me that he loved me more than most
That he could be the one to take me home
(But am I good enough to)
Be the everything that he could want?
He told me that he loved me more than most

Been lookin' for a non-material love
Soon as I find it I'll be fuckin' it up (break it up)
Like I ain't made a mess here often enough
Not enough, not enough, not enough, not enough, no, no, no

Will no one ever show me how to be lonely?
End up on my own almost every night
I must be the only
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely
Ain't nobody can hold me like the way you hold me
End up on my own almost every night
I must be the only
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely

(But am I good enough to)
Tell you that I love you more than most?
That you could be the one to take me home?
(But am I good enough to)
To give you everything that you can hold?
In truth, I'm being honest, I don't know

Been lookin' for a non-material love
Soon as I find it I'll be fuckin' it up (break it up)
Like I ain't made a mess here often enough
Not enough, not enough, not enough, not enough, no, no, no

Will no one ever show me how to be lonely?
End up on my own almost every night
I must be the only
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely

(But am I good enough to)
Hmm (be lonely)
Yeah, yeah

Will no one ever show me how to be lonely?
End up on my own almost every night
I must be the only
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely
Ain't nobody can hold me, I like the way you hold me
End up on my own almost every night
I must be the only
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (lonely)
Oh, oh, oh
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (be lonely)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (be lonely)
Oh, oh, oh
Feeling like losing you will show me how to be lonely

○white clothes - their love seemed pure and good
○surrounded by other couples - pressured to feel like she has to be in a relationship
○shot in the heart with an arrow - lovestruck (unexpected)
○diamond tears - her tears are unique/not much can make her cry
○walking on eggshells - love was fragile and easily broken or ruined by the smallest pressure
○skeleton - he wasn't always there for her/their love was empty/their love was fragile
○bear hug - all she wanted was to be loved and hugged/all she wanted to do was show him love
○winter beanie - he/their love was cold
○falling through sky - she fell fast for him
○insects crawling on her & making her crazy/annoyed - he made her crazy/made her skin crawl/she felt as if she couldn't escape him/he was quickly attached to her
○getting frisky with the skeleton - no sexual love/desire/attraction
○wearing black - their love turned out to not be what it had seemed (negative)/mourning their relationship
○hitting wall & good memories flood back/realisation of herself being the only person she needs - in bad times she remembers the good memories/new found self love
○hitting/breaking wall - breaking free from the relationship/relationship crumbling to nothing
○gold bath - to him she was just a trophy/their rich love suffocated her
○alien spaceship - she felt alienated
○shooting from space guns - defence mechanism to hurt or push people away (his or hers?)
○heart on her chest - made her heart beat out of her chest/she wore her heart on her sleeve
○silk sheets - surrounded by riches but lacks richness of love
○two Rita's blindfolded - love made her blind/unaware of the toll it was taking on her/felt as if she had to be two separate people
○pulling face off - freeing herself of the mask she was wearing/done pretending to be someone she wasn't
○no mask - she is now the person she always was and doesn't have to hide it anymore


I HOPE YOU LIKED MY ANALYSIS OF RITA'S MUSIC VIDEO AND I HOPE IT MADE THE IMAGERY IN THE VIDEO MAKE MORE SENSE TO YOU (THOUGH IT MAY NOT BE CORRECT)
