carnegie hall
two blinks i love you Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

Don't romanticise your own despair
You'd need a guillotine to cut your hair
Soft teeth and some formaldehyde
I heard about a girl at school that died

It shook to me to a mortal core
A perspective that I crave once more
That I crave once more
That I crave once more
That I crave once more

Well I don't think it's very fair to say
That I'm a victim of somebody's second chance for me
Cos I had a dream that you were on the wall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall

Don't gate keep all the love you lost
You'll feel happy but at what now cost?
And if it's better than it ever was
I love you but I don't because
But I don't because
But I don't because
But I don't because

Well I don't think it's very fair to say
That I'm a victim of somebody's second chance for me
Cos I had a dream that you were on the wall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall

One day you'll be 30 and I'll be gone
Guess I'll just be biting my tongue
I'll see you round the corner some time, somewhere
What are you doing today!
You'll sink into yourself, quicksand in the hourglass of us

Well I don't think it's very fair to say
That I'm a victim of somebody's second chance for me
Cos I had a dream that you were on the wall
At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall




At Carnegie hall
At Carnegie hall

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Carnegie Hall" by Two Blinks I Love You convey themes of self-reflection, loss, and struggling with feelings of victimization and unrequited love. The opening lines caution against glamorizing one's own suffering, with the imagery of needing a guillotine to cut one's hair suggesting a dramatic approach to dealing with personal struggles. The mention of a girl's death at school serves as a jarring reminder of mortality and the importance of perspective.


The repetition of the phrase "That I crave once more" emphasizes a desire for a deeper understanding or awakening brought about by moments of profound realization. This longing for a shift in perspective is further underscored by the dream imagery of seeing someone on the wall at Carnegie Hall, a symbol of high achievement and recognition.


The lyrics also touch on the idea of not holding onto past loves or losses as a way to find happiness, questioning the cost of holding onto the pain. The conflicting emotions of love and detachment are expressed through the repetition of "But I don't because," reflecting a sense of inner conflict and emotional complexity.


As the song progresses, the passage of time and the inevitability of change are acknowledged. The lines about being 30 and feeling the weight of unspoken words hint at the passage of time and missed opportunities. The imagery of sinking into oneself like quicksand reflects a sense of being trapped or consumed by unresolved feelings.


Overall, the song "Carnegie Hall" delves into themes of introspection, regret, and the struggle to reconcile past experiences with present realities. The recurring motif of dreams and desires for a different perspective underscore the complexity of emotions and the longing for understanding and closure.
