try to hit and always miss
say i will without a kiss
growing up with lots of lists
i forgot to say i like this
and you say you’re always so foolish
saying duh duh duh




Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Sqip's song "Foolish" delve into the theme of missed opportunities and regret. The first line, "try to hit and always miss," suggests a pattern of trying and failing. This could refer to the singer's attempts at forming a connection or achieving something significant in their life. The next line, "say I will without a kiss," implies a lack of passion or genuine intention. It indicates that the singer may make empty promises or declarations without truly investing themselves emotionally.


The following line, "growing up with lots of lists," hints at a structured and organized upbringing. The use of the word "lists" suggests a focus on practicality and meeting expectations rather than pursuing personal desires. The lyrics continue, "I forgot to say I like this," which implies a sense of neglecting one's own desires and preferences. This could be due to the singer prioritizing what they believe is expected of them instead of honoring their true desires.


The repetition of the line "and you say you're always so foolish" emphasizes the self-perception of the singer as being foolish. This could be a result of the missed opportunities, the lack of genuine connection, or the failure to prioritize personal happiness. The concluding line, "saying duh duh duh," adds a touch of whimsy to the lyrics, possibly representing the frustration or self-deprecation that comes with feeling foolish.
