Sweater Weather
The Neighbourhood Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

And all I am is a man
I want the world in my hands
I hate the beach
But I stand in California with my toes in the sand
Use the sleeves of my sweater
Let's have an adventure
Head in the clouds but my gravity centered
Touch my neck and I'll touch yours
You in those little high waisted shorts, oh

Oh, she knows what I think about
And what I think about
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn't wanna tell you about, no
'Cause it's too cold
For you here
And now, so let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And if I may just take your breath away
I don't mind if there's not much to say
Sometimes the silence guides a mind
To move to a place so far away
The goosebumps start to raise
The minute that my left hand meets your waist
And then I watch your face
Put my finger on your tongue 'cause you love to taste, yeah
These hearts adore, everyone the other beats hardest for
Inside this place is warm
Outside it starts to pour

Coming down
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn't wanna tell you about, no, no, no
'Cause it's too cold
For you here
And now, so let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

'Cause it's too cold
For you here
And now, so let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

Whoa, whoa, whoa

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

'Cause it's too cold
For you here
And now, so let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It's too cold
For you here
And now, let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater





And it's too cold, it's too cold
The holes of my sweater

Overall Meaning

The Neighbourhood's hit song, Sweater Weather, is a romantic tune about the feelings that come with falling in love. The opening lines, "And all I am is a man / I want the world in my hands", express the singer's desire to achieve great things in life but also their realization that they are limited by their humanity. The following line, "I hate the beach / But I stand in California with my toes in the sand", suggests that the singer is uncomfortable with the superficiality of beach culture but is willing to make some compromises for the sake of love.


The chorus, " 'Cause it's too cold / For you here / And now, so let me hold / Both your hands in the holes of my sweater", expresses the desire to protect and comfort the loved one in a harsh environment. The second verse, "And if I may just take your breath away / I don't mind if there's not much to say / Sometimes the silence guides a mind / To move to a place so far away", suggests that the singer is willing to let the magic of the moment speak for itself and take them away to a place of pure emotion.


The song's bridge, "These hearts adore, everyone the other beats hardest for / Inside this place is warm / Outside it starts to pour", emphasizes the strength and significance of the couple's love in contrast to the harshness of the outside world. Overall, Sweater Weather is a beautifully crafted song that captures the raw emotion and intensity of falling in love.

And all I am is a man
I am just a human being


I want the world in my hands
I aspire to have power and control over everything


I hate the beach
I dislike going to the beach


But I stand in California with my toes in the sand
Even though I dislike the beach, I find myself in California by the ocean


Use the sleeves of my sweater
To protect my hands, I'll use the sleeves of my sweater


Let's have an adventure
Let's go on a fun and exciting journey together


Head in the clouds but my gravity centered
I am a dreamer, but I am grounded in reality


Touch my neck and I'll touch yours
If you touch my neck, I'll touch yours


You in those little high waisted shorts, oh
You wearing high-waisted shorts look attractive


Oh, she knows what I think about
She is aware of what's on my mind


And what I think about
The things I am thinking about


One love, two mouths
We have one love but two mouths

And if I may just take your breath away
If I can impress you, I will


I don't mind if there's not much to say
It's okay if there's not much conversation


Sometimes the silence guides a mind
The silence can lead to thoughtful introspection


To move to a place so far away
To be transported to a distant place in your mind


The goosebumps start to raise
I feel chills running down my body


The minute that my left hand meets your waist
As soon as I put my hand on your waist


And then I watch your face
I pay attention to your facial expressions


Put my finger on your tongue 'cause you love to taste, yeah
I put my finger on your tongue because you enjoy the sensation


These hearts adore, everyone the other beats hardest for
Our hearts love and appreciate each other the most


Inside this place is warm
It feels warm and comforting inside


Outside it starts to pour
It's raining heavily outside


Coming down
The rain is coming down


Whoa, whoa, whoa
Sounds of surprise, excitement or admiration


It's too cold, it's too cold
It's very chilly


The hands of my sweater
My sweater's sleeves are providing warmth to my hands

Alternative Lyrics for myself:

Title: Slowly Shatter

[A] New chapter, now is born,
Keep holding on, now living poor.
I hate the streets,
But trying this feat, all over again with little helping hands.
Ripped the sleeves of my sweater.
It's colder each venture.
Heading through crowds and my head has been faltered.
Scarred and wrecked, and I might fight forced.
Don't worry about me or consider anymore, no.

They don't know what I think about.
Everything planned out.
One life, two tries.
-
One life, one fight.
No cries, no lights.
Just I, you hear out.
Everything I really wanna tell you about, cause.

'Cause it's real cold,
In this world.
And now, I try to hold,
With my heart, while it just slowly shatters.

-And if I say, it'd make you cry in haste.
I no longer hurt with everything.
Sitting in silence scrolling on by.
While my brain is paying idle time.

The thumps always make my heart race.
The anger ever present in each step you take.
Then you burst in red faced,
Spraying cold water every single morning routine, sad.
My heart is sore, wonder at times what I'm fighting for.
My room's not safe from the cold,
Outside there's icicles!

Falling out.
One life, two tries.
One life, one fight.
No cries, no lights.
Just I, you hear out.
Everything that I wanna tell you about, cause, cause, cause..!

'Cause it's real cold,
In this world.
And now, I try to hold,
With my heart, while it just slowly shatters.

-Cause it's real cold,
In this world.
And now, I try to hold,
With my heart, while it just slowly shatters.
(Hope.)

Hope, gotta keep on holding on, don't stop.

Hope, gotta keep on moving on, small steps, each time.

Hope, never look in to the light.

Hope, even when my life's apart, hold on, don't dart.

Hope, things are better with my art.

'Cause it's real cold,
In this world.
And now, I try to hold,
With my heart, while it just slowly shatters.

-It is really cold,
This whole world.
And now, I just hold,
With my heart, and, it just slowly shatters.

It's really cold.
Really cold.

My heart slowly shatters...

And if I may just take your breath away

Put my finger on your tongue 'cause you love the taste, yeah
These hearts adore
Everyone the other beats hardest for
Inside, this place is warm
Outside, it starts to pour
