Feather
Sabrina Carpenter Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do)
(Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do)
(Oh, not another take)

Oh, it's like that, I'm your dream come true
When it's on a platter for you
Then you pulled back when I try to make plans
More than two hours in advance, mm

I slam the door, I hit ignore
I'm saying, "No, no, no, no more"
I got you blocked, after this, an afterthought
I finally cut you off

I feel so much lighter like a feather with you off my mind (ah)
Floating through the memories like whatever, you're a waste of time (ah)
Your signals are mixed, you act like a bitch
You fit every stereotype, "Send a pic"
I feel so much lighter like a feather with you out my life
With you out my life

(Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do)
Like a feather, like a feather, like a feather, yeah

It feels so good
Not caring where you are tonight
And it feels so good
Not pretending to like the wine you like

I slam the door (slam the door), I hit ignore (hit ignore)
I'm saying, "No, no, no, no more"
I got you blocked, excited to never talk
I, I'm so sorry for your loss

I feel so much lighter like a feather with you off my mind (ah)
Floating through the memories like, whatever, you're a waste of time (ah)
Your signals are mixed, you act like a bitch (a bitch)
You fit every stereotype, "Send a pic"
I feel so much lighter like a feather, with you out my life
With you out my life

(Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do) ah, mm
Like a feather, like a feather, like a feather

You want me? I'm done
You miss me? No duh
Where I'm at, I'm up where I'm at
You want me? I'm done (I'm done)
You miss me? No duh
Where I'm at, I'm up (I'm up) where I'm at

You want me? I'm done (I feel so much lighter)
You miss me? No duh (like a feather)
Where I'm at, I'm up where I'm at (with you off my mind)
You want me? I'm done (I feel so much lighter)
You miss me? No duh (like a feather with you off my mind)




Where I'm at, I'm up where I'm at (like a feather, like a feather)
(Like a feather, yeah)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to "Feather" by Sabrina Carpenter describe the feeling of finally letting go of a toxic relationship and feeling the weight lifted off of one's shoulders. The song talks about the singer being someone's dream come true and putting in all the effort but only to be met with mixed signals and constant disappointment. The singer slams the door and hits ignore, finally deciding to cut off all ties with this person. The repetition of "like a feather" throughout the song suggests that the singer feels light and free without the weight of this person in their life.


The line "Your signals are mixed, you act like a bitch, you fit every stereotype, send a pic" can be interpreted as the singer calling out their former partner for their inconsistent behavior and being a stereotypical "player." The repetition of "I feel so much lighter, like a feather, with you off my mind" and "Like a feather, like a feather, like a feather, yeah" reinforce the idea of feeling liberated and unburdened after cutting ties with this person.


Overall, "Feather" is a powerful anthem about moving on and prioritizing one's own mental and emotional well-being.

I love it when she says 'I'm so sorry for your loss!'. In my opinion, that's the best part of the song.
