Moth To A Flame
Swedish House Mafia & The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Ooh-whoa-whoa)
(Whoa)
(Whoa)

Like a moth to a flame
I'll pull you in, I'll pull you back to
What you need initially
It's just one call away
And you'll leave him, you're loyal to me
But this time, I'll let you be

'Cause he seems like he's good for you
And he makes you feel like you should
And all your friends say he's the one
His love for you is true

But does he know you call me when he sleeps?
But does he know the pictures that you keep?
But does he know the reasons that you cry?
Oh, tell me, does he know where your heart lies?
Where it truly lies

Yeah, you should be with him
I let you go from time
You should stay with him

'Cause he seems like he's good for you
And he makes you feel like you should
And all your friends say he's the one
His love for you is true (hey)

But does he know you call me when he sleeps? (Oh, no)
But does he know the pictures that you keep? (No)
But does he know the reasons that you cry?
Oh, tell me, does he know where your heart lies?
Where it truly lies

Right here with me, babe
Where it truly lies
In my bed, babe
Where it truly lies
In my arms, babe
Where it truly lies, oh
Where it truly lies





Where it truly lies (hey)
Where it truly lies

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the song "Moth to a Flame" by Swedish House Mafia talk about a man who is willing to wait for a woman who is in a relationship with someone else. He's a familiar face in her life, but he knows that her heart lies with him. The lyrics describe how he'll pull her back in - like a moth to a flame - despite her attempts to stay loyal to her current partner. However, this time, he's willing to let her be with him because he believes her current partner is good for her, and his love for her is genuine.


The lyrics also reveal that the woman calls the man when her current partner is asleep and keeps pictures of him, which suggests that she still has strong feelings for the man. The song highlights the internal struggle of the woman, who has to choose between the man she's loyal to and the man she truly desires. Ultimately, the man acknowledges that the woman's heart lies with him, and he's ready to take her in his arms.


In conclusion, the song "Moth to a Flame" is about forbidden love and the inner conflict between two people who have feelings for each other, but the timing is not right. The lyrics are emotional and relatable to anyone who has experienced the struggles of choosing between two people they love.
