Falling in Love with Myself Again
Sparks Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Similar mother, similar father, similar dog, cat and fish
And we'll make the same wish
When the birthday candles lit
We'll both be older
We won't get our wish
Yes, I think that I'm falling in love with myself again

[Chorus]
Yes, I think I'm falling in love with myself again
Yes, I think I'm falling
Yes, I think I'm falling
Yes, I think I'm falling in love with myself again

With her hand in my hand and my hand in hers
Don't we look a blur
Me and her and me and her
Hey, kiss her, oh kiss her
Our friends do concur
Yes, I think that I'm falling in love with myself again

[Chorus]

I can't see with you in front of the mirror staring, staring
I can't hear myself think with all that music blaring, blaring

Yes, I'm falling
Falling, falling
Yes, I'm falling
Falling, falling
Yes, I think I'm falling in love with myself again

I bring home the bacon and eat myself
Here's to my health
Hope that I'm feeling well
I'm burning the candle at both ends, oh well
Yes, I think that I'm falling in love with myself again





[Chorus]

Overall Meaning

The song "Falling in Love with Myself Again" by Sparks is an introspective take on self-love and self-awareness. The opening lines talk about how the singer's family members, their pets, and themselves are all similar in some ways. They mention how they make the same wishes on their birthdays every year but often don't get what they wish for. This sets the tone for the song where the singer indulges in self-love and celebrates themselves.


The chorus of the song repeats multiple times where she claims that she is falling in love with herself again. The next verse talks about being in love with someone else and how their friends approve of the relationship. The bridge talks about the distractions around her - the mirror and the music, both taking away from her deep contemplation about herself. The song ends with her eating bacon and burning the candle at both ends, hoping to stay healthy.


Overall, the song seems to be about how the singer is learning to love herself, despite everything around her. It seems to be a journey of self-discovery and acceptance, which is something that is not easily achieved.
