I GOT THE LOVE
Trumpet & Badman Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Holding out on patience
Cannot go and change the world
Live a hallowed life
Swallow whole your vice
Living Buried Under

He Laments your name
Washes you a new





He laments your name
Live the life he bloomed

Overall Meaning

The lyrics suggest a sense of inner conflict and struggle, with the singer acknowledging the need for patience and restraint in a world that may not always align with their beliefs or values. The line "Holding out on patience, Cannot go and change the world" reflects a certain resignation or acceptance of limitations in trying to make a significant impact on the world around them. It could also suggest a feeling of being overwhelmed or powerless in the face of larger forces or systems.


The phrase "Live a hallowed life, Swallow whole your vice, Living Buried Under" hints at a dichotomy between striving for a sacred or revered existence while also grappling with personal flaws or temptations that may weigh them down. The image of living buried under one's vices conveys a sense of being trapped or constrained by one's own shortcomings or mistakes, leading to a feeling of being stifled or restricted in their personal growth or happiness.


The repetition of the line "He laments your name" throughout the lyrics suggests a sense of regret or sorrow associated with someone specific, perhaps indicating a desire for forgiveness or reconciliation. The idea of washing someone anew can symbolize a desire for purification or renewal, a fresh start or a cleansing of past wrongs or hurts. This could indicate a longing for redemption or a chance to make amends for past actions or behaviors.


The final line, "Live the life he bloomed," could be interpreted as a resolution or a call to action to embrace a life that has been cultivated or nurtured by someone else. This could suggest a sense of gratitude or indebtedness to another individual who has had a significant influence on their life and choices. It could also imply a sense of following in someone's footsteps or carrying on their legacy, embracing the values or beliefs that they have instilled in them.
