Animal
Troye Sivan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I told you something safe
Something I've never said before
And I, I, I can't keep my hands off you
While you lie in the wake
Covered all in the night before
I'm high, high, high, no one's got me quite like you

I want you all to myself
Don't leave none for nobody else
I am an animal with you
No angels could beckon me back
And it's hotter than hell where I'm at
I am an animal with you

An ode to the boy I love
Boy, I'll die to care for you
You're mine, mine, mine, tell me who do I owe that to?
And as the days fly by
We'll be more than getting through, yeah
And in time, time, time, we'll build a home for two

I want you all to myself
Don't leave none for nobody else
I am an animal with you
No angels could beckon me back
And it's hotter than hell where I'm at
I am an animal with you

All is right in the meadow
When I'm lying next to my fellow
Baby, that's you
Baby, that's
Baby, that's you
One way trip like an arrow
All laid out like a tarot
Baby, that's you
Baby, that's
Baby, that's you, you-you

I want you all to myself
Don't leave none for nobody else
I am an animal with you
No angels could beckon me back
And it's hotter than hell where I'm at
I am an animal with you





(I am an animal with you)
(I am an animal with you)

The song's opening line, "I told you something safe, something I've never said before," sets the tone for the raw and genuine emotion expressed throughout the song.

The lyrics "And as the days fly by, we'll be more than getting through" convey a sense of timelessness and the notion that the singer is willing to spend eternity with his love.


The chorus is the song's most memorable section, with the lyrics "I want you all to myself, don't leave none for nobody else, I am an animal with you," being particularly striking. The singer's intense possessiveness and animalistic nature make him feel as though he and his lover are the only two beings in the world. The lyrics "No angels could beckon me back and it's hotter than hell where I'm at" suggest that the singer feels as though he has found his heaven with his partner and that nothing could ever change that.


Overall, the lyrics of Animal are an ode to a love that is all-consuming, overwhelming and all-encompassing. The song's haunting melody, combined with Troye Sivan's vocal prowess, serves as an excellent backdrop for the poignant and powerful lyrics.

And I, I, I can't keep my hands off you
Being near you makes me feel immensely attracted to you, and I find it almost impossible to control myself from reaching for you.


While you lie in the wake
You rest beside me as I am unsteady, aware of the consequences of what we will do yet still succumbing to the urge to be with you in any case.


Covered all in the night before
Memories of last night are still fresh in our minds, and our bodies bear the traces of our physical intimacy.

I am an animal with you
I become instinctual and primal when I'm with you - like an animal fulfilled by your presence and touch.


No angels could beckon me back
So powerful is the attraction I have towards you that not even angels coming from the heavens could make me give you up.

Where we are together and in each other's presence, it's as hot and passionate as hell itself.

It's you who makes me feel this way - there's no one else who can occupy the place you do in my life.


One way trip like an arrow
Our relationship is consuming and all-encompassing, with no turning back once we've sped forward.


All laid out like a tarot
Our connection feels divinely destined and fated, like it's been laid out to us like a tarot card reading.
