Music has always been a powerful medium to express emotions, and when it comes to the complexities of love, it becomes a Entertainment channel to navigate the rollercoaster of feelings. In this context, the song “We’re In Love” by Boygenius stands as an evocative testament to the exhilaration and vulnerability that love entails. Composed by the indie rock supergroup Boygenius, consisting of Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus, this song encapsulates the profound joys and heartaches that accompany the human experience of being in love.
We’re In Love Lyrics
You could absolutely break my heart
That’s how I know that we’re in love
I don’t need the symbol of a scar
So put down the knife, we’re not swappin’ blood
Isn’t it enough that we stripped down to our skin?
Cold and porcelain like bathers in a painting
And I told you of your past lives, every man you’ve ever been
It wasn’t flattering, but you listened like it mattered
I feel crazy in ways I never say
Will you still love me if it turns out I’m insane?
I know what you’ll say, but it helps to hear you say it anyway
Some October in the future, I’ll run out of trash TV
And I’ll be feeling lonely, so I’ll walk to karaoke
Sing the song you wrote about me, never once checking the words
I hope that no one sings along, I hope that I’m not a regular
Damn, that makes me sad, it doesn’t have to be like that
If you rewrite your life, may I still play a part?
In the next one, will you find me?
I’ll be the boy with the pink carnation
Pinned to my lapel, who looks like hell and asks for help
And if you do, I’ll know it’s you
I can’t imagine you without the same smile in your eyes
There is something about you that I will always recognize
And if you don’t remember, I will try to remind you
Of the hummingbirds, you know the ones (I know the ones)
And the baby scorpion
And the winter lunar halo
And the walk we took in the Redwoods
I could go on and on and on, and I will
Go on and on and on until
It all comes back
The song opens with soft guitar strums and the hauntingly beautiful voice of Julien Baker, setting the tone for a heartfelt reflection on love’s complexities. As the melody floats in the air, the lyrics dive into the initial stages of falling in love, where everything seems euphoric and magical. Lines like “We’re in love with how / Y’all want your feelings / And we want our feelings too” showcase the longing for emotional connection and validation. The repetition of “We’re in love” emphasizes the uncontainable excitement that overwhelms the heart at the beginning of a new romance.
Phoebe Bridgers’ voice gracefully takes over, adding another layer of emotion to the song. The lyrics delve into the inevitable doubts and uncertainties that come with being in love. “Am I the one you think about when you’re sitting in your faintin’ chair drinkin’ pink rabbits?” she sings, hinting at insecurities that plague even the most enamored minds. The references to “pink rabbits” allude to the song by The National, where the lyrics also explore themes of vulnerability and doubt in relationships.
“We’re In Love” by Boygenius stands as an introspective portrayal of love’s emotional spectrum, capturing the ups and downs that make the journey of love so profound. With its raw and candid lyrics, the song resonates with listeners on a deep and personal level, evoking memories of their own experiences with love.
“We’re In Love” is a reminder that love is not just a fairytale, but a complex and multifaceted journey. It encapsulates the essence of human connection, reminding us that love is a beautiful chaos that we willingly embrace for all its trials and tribulations.
