Electric Light
Sys Bjerre Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

folk fortæller mig hvad jeg skal gøre
hvordan jeg
skal se ud
og helst skal opfører mig
men jeg
behøver ingen selvfed suflør
jeg gør min ting
og jeg har faktisk selv en mening
det fylder mig med glæde og liv
når dem der siger at jeg er dum og naiv
skulle prøv' at
se på livet fra mit perspektiv
men de har ikke tid.
for de har travl med at have det svært
for der er noget de skulle ha' lært
som for mig nu er elementert
giv mig rampelys
der blinker og skinder
det gir' mig kuldegys og brændende kinder
jeg sir' uuh aah
kom nu og leg'
for du' en sjov pige
præcis ligesom mig
og vi har det godt i et følgespot
og jeg har selv brugt utroligt med tid
på mine kæmpe komplekser og skod selvtillid
og jeg har kæmpet imod men det hjalp ik' en skid
for jeg er den jeg er
men måske en dag det slår klik
og jeg slår om og laver indi musik
jeg tror det bare ik'
nej giv mig rampelys
der blinker og skinder
giv mig kuldegys og brændende kinder
jeg sir'
uhh ahh
kom nu og leg
for du en sjov pig'




præcis ligesom mig
og vi har det godt i et følgespot

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Electric Light" by Sys Bjerre explore the theme of individuality and the societal pressure to conform. The song begins with Sys Bjerre acknowledging that society often tells her what to do, how to look and how to behave. However, she asserts that she doesn't need any self-important prompters and has her own opinions. Sys Bjerre declares that being herself makes her happy and fills her with life. She encourages others to see life from her perspective, which may help them realize that they are wasting time worrying and overthinking. However, she acknowledges that some people have no time for this, busy having a hard time with problems they should've learnt from. Sys Bjerre's focus, though, is not on conforming to societal norms but being herself.

She wants the spotlight, flashing lights and chills, and believes that everyone deserves a chance to play and be themselves. Sys Bjerre encourages her listeners to join her in playing and having fun because life should be lived without shame or inhibition. She confesses that she has had her own insecurities in the past and fought against them, but ultimately, she realized that being herself was the best thing she could do. The song concludes on the note of the desired spotlight being given to her, flashing away with a sense of passion and desire for life.
