Lily Lyrics

Play "Lily"
on Amazon Music

Lily was a little girl
Afraid of the big, wide world
She grew up within her castle walls
Now and then she tried to run
And then on the night with the setting sun
She went in the woods away
So afraid, all alone

They warned her, don't go...

    I believe it is a bout a girl, lily of course, who had a certain dream to do something. She is warned not to go overboard and be careful for what she wishes for, therefore the lyrics "They warned her, don't go there". But Lily decides to not listen. Then she meets a person, or in the song a 'creature'. They come up to her and offers her a deal that he, or she, will help her achieve her dream. But she must exchange something such as her life, hence the lyrics "just let me in". She accepts the deal only realizing after that she made a terrible choice, not aware of how to escape, she goes out yelling "is there somebody out there?" and "please help me" to try to make the public aware of her captivity. But I believe that this doesn't work and she is eventually captured again.

    Once again, just a theory

    I think the creature likes lily (us) and that's why its says that "you will be under my control". "follow every were i go" means that the will protect you. This is my interpretation for lily.

    I think Lilly represents people who want to explore, and just want more out of life, or you. The creatures represent the people who are in the world that we come across who try to manipulate. They try to keep you with them by promising you things, like clothes, shoes, love,or a better life. When You want to leave because the spell over you is broken. They don't let you go.

    This is just a theory but I think that Lily is a girl that craves adventure and more interest in life. She runs away from the life that she used to live in and now she is stuck in the forest with many creatures that the village warns her about. She can’t trust anybody and she is scared and lost. She wants back to the place where she used to live. This is kind of a crazy theory and it’s fine if you don’t like it it’s just what I thought it was about when I heard this song.

    Lily is you and the creatures are all of the relationships we have with people but the people we love sometimes just dont love us back. They play you and that's what the hypnotized part means. When we realize they dont care we try to break them off but sometimes you're just so beneficial to them they dont let go

    I think that lily represents us. The creatures, represents depression or our problem. Those creatures were inciting us to do bad things or to let us down.
