Moment
griff Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'll tell you something you need to know
Nothing I can say phone to phone
I'll tell you something, but you have to sit close
You're the one that I miss the most

I've heard that you're happy
And maybe it's selfish of me
To want you back this time
I know we decided
It's better if we both were free
But it kills me now

We said our last goodbye
Won't you stay the night
Even just for a moment?
Perfect lie, pretend we're fine
Even just for a moment
Though we're over, we're so not over
Pull me close, I need closure
This is our last goodbye
Stay the night, even just for a moment





Even just for a moment

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of griff's song "Moment" depict a conversation between two individuals who have separated but are still yearning for each other's presence. The singer conveys a sense of longing, as they admit feeling selfish for wanting the person back in their life. They acknowledge that the decision to part ways was made with the intention of finding freedom, but now it pains them to see the other person happy without them.


The chorus reflects the conflicting emotions of the singer. They ask the person to stay the night, just for a moment, even though they both know it is not a permanent solution. The line "Though we're over, we're so not over" suggests that despite the separation, there are unresolved feelings and a desire for closure. The singer desires the satisfaction of being physically close to the person one last time, in an attempt to find solace and obtain the closure they seek.


Overall, "Moment" captures the bittersweet nature of a breakup, where both individuals may still have lingering feelings but have chosen to go their separate ways. It explores the complexity of emotions experienced during the aftermath of a relationship and the yearning for one more moment together.


Line by Line Meaning

I'll tell you something you need to know
I have something important to share with you


Nothing I can say phone to phone
Words won't have the same impact if I say them over the phone


I'll tell you something, but you have to sit close
To truly understand, you need to be physically near me


You're the one that I miss the most
Out of everyone, you're the person I long for the most


I've heard that you're happy
I've been told that you're content


And maybe it's selfish of me
Perhaps I'm being self-centered


To want you back this time
To desire to have you in my life again now


I know we decided
We mutually agreed


It's better if we both were free
It would be advantageous for both of us to be independent


But it kills me now
However, it deeply pains me at this moment


We said our last goodbye
We bid our final farewell


Won't you stay the night
Can you please spend the night with me


Even just for a moment?
Even if it's just a brief period of time


Perfect lie, pretend we're fine
Let's create the illusion of being okay


Though we're over, we're so not over
Although we've moved on, we still have unresolved feelings


Pull me close, I need closure
Hold me tightly, I require emotional resolution


This is our last goodbye
This is truly our final farewell


Stay the night, even just for a moment
Spend the night with me, even if it's only a brief moment

Verse 1]
I have been here
I have been here
I’m finding myself here way too many times
I’ll have it done
Ain’t enough
They want more
But I got none
Finding myself here way too many times
And every feel
Every feeling
Baby I choose things that feel good inside
But feelings they
Always change
And lead me back
To a place
‘Cause really I just don’t feel too good inside

[Chorus]
Honestly, all of this time I’ve been broken
Broken inside
And something started working
But they only lost a moment

[Verse 2]
Baby why can’t
Baby why can’t
I use all these tears to put out my own fire
Cause there’s enough
There’s enough
Fill it up
Fill it up
Use all these tears to put out my own fire

[Chorus]
Honestly, all of this time I’ve been broken
Broken inside
And something started working
But they only lost a moment
I’ve been searching all of this time
For something to fill me inside
But nothing’s really working
‘Cause they only lost a moment

[Bridge]
Oh I am here
With nothing to hide
Let out my tears
And I swallow my pride
‘Cause I think I need you
Oh I think I need you
Oh god I am here
With nothing to hide
I let out my tears
And I swallow my pride
‘Cause I think I need you
I think I need you

[Chorus]
Honestly, all of this time I’ve been broken
Broken inside
And something started working
But they only lost a moment
Been searching all of this time
For something to fill me inside
And nothing’s really working
‘Cause they only lost a moment
