biting her nails
globe Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Calling a wrong number, right?
What's wrong? What's wrong with you?

笑顔をさがしに街へ出て
流れこむリズムに乗って
心臓が動く 動く 動く
この苛立ちも行き場を失って
キレイな色に見えるけどね
明かりは私の心おおってく
Pink の香りにむらがる本能
そんな生きものだ なんて笑ってる
She's biting her nails
She's biting her nails
Hiding her light
Hiding her face

She's biting her nails
She's biting her nails
She's hiding her mind
I want to know why you're so alone

What's the matter with you?
What's wrong? What's wrong with you?

それをよろこびあやつる凡能に
成り下がりたくはないから動く 動く
どこか曲がった欲望を
今も尚まねた love love love

自分に酔いしれ
とけあう2人に残るしずくは
おのれの顔にかかるだけ
うすっぺらな満たされ方
笑い合う高なる声に
私は耳をふさぐ
汗を流すこと涙を流すこと
何のためだかわからなくなってるよ
未だになんでかわからない

She's biting her nails
She's biting her nails
Hiding her light
Hiding her face

She's hurting her nails
She's biting her nails
Hiding in silence for who?

She's hiding the air
She's hiding her face
She's hiding the space
She's hiding her face

She's biting her nails
She's still biting nails
She's still biting nails in her room

I heard my phone ring
Pick up the phone and think
Who can it be at this time?
Who can call me on this line?
I wanna hear your story
I wanna hear your story
I wanna hear your story
True and clear

空気の悪いその場所で
交わす2人の言葉の罪は
おのれの心につつまれてくだけ
くだけくだけ散っていくよ

She's biting her nails
She's biting her nails
She's hiding her face
She's hiding the earth

She's hurting her nails
She's biting her nails
She's hiding her face
She's hiding her mind

She's biting her nails
She's biting her nails
She's hiding her face
She's hiding her mind

She's biting her nails
She's biting her nails
She's hiding the space over who?

I can't help you
Gone gone gone





I'm worried about her but I can't help you

Overall Meaning

The song "Biting Her Nails" by Globe reflects on the inner struggles of someone who is dealing with feelings of loneliness and frustration. The lyrics describe a person who is trying to find happiness in the world around them, but is struggling to do so. The opening line "Calling a wrong number, right? What's wrong? What's wrong with you?" suggests the confusion and feeling of disorientation that the singer is experiencing. They are searching for something, but they don't know what it is or where to find it.


The next few lines describe the singer's attempt to find joy in the city, but they are unable to escape their underlying feelings of irritation and restlessness. They realize that even though things might look beautiful on the outside, they are still unable to find true happiness. The repeated phrase, "She's biting her nails, hiding her face," underscores the sense of anxiety and insecurity that the singer feels.


As the song continues, the singer begins to explore their own desires and the ways they fall short of their own expectations. They are struggling to find their place in the world and to understand what it means to truly connect with someone else. The repeated refrain, "What's the matter with you? What's wrong? What's wrong with you?" highlights their confusion and frustration.


Ultimately, the song ends on a somewhat ambiguous note. While the singer is still struggling, there is a sense that they are beginning to understand their own struggles on a deeper level. The line "I'm worried about her but I can't help you" suggests that the singer's inner turmoil is something that they must ultimately confront and resolve on their own.
