CPR
Summer Walker Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Caught me at the right time baby, oh
I was at the edge, I was at the end
Made me feel like there is life worth livin'
Made me feel alive, oh yeah
Time ain't on my side

Baby, where would I be
Without your love beside me? Oh
Baby where would I be?
Probably gone, oh

'Cause it feels like CPR
'Cause it feels like CPR

Mmm, make me love again
I notice I can't stand you, oh
I don't wanna talk about it
But no one understands me, no
You're the only one I'm confidin' to darlin', oh
I don't even really need to lie to you, babe

Patient lover, oh, my babe
How you fix my heart, oh darlin'
Everythin' I've done you knew
You know, I ain't really never had a home
Damn, I really hate feelin' alone
Maybe you could make me feel at home, baby

Hate feelin' alone
Hate feelin' alone, baby, oh
I hate feelin' alone
I hate feelin' alone, baby

I need you here at home, baby
You're the only one who knows
You're the only one who knows

Ooh, ooh, oh, yeah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah-yeah





Where would I be, be?

Overall Meaning

In Summer Walker's song CPR, the lyrics describe a person who was at the edge and felt like they had reached the end of life. However, the love of their significant other made them feel like there was still life worth living, and they were brought back to a state of being alive. The lyrics suggest that the person is grateful to have their significant other in their life, as they may not still be living without them. The line "Where would I be without your love beside me?" speaks to this sentiment. The reference to CPR in the chorus suggests that the love of this person is what revived them, just as CPR revives breathing in a person who has stopped.


The lyrics also touch upon themes of loneliness and the need for a home or a feeling of safety. Summer Walker sings about how the only person they feel comfortable confiding in is their significant other, who acts as a patient lover who has fixed their heart. The line "Maybe you could make me feel at home, baby" suggests that the person sees their partner as their home and wants to be with them. The song is a testament to the healing powers of love and the importance of having someone to lean on when life gets difficult.
