Amy Winehouse: Valerie Meaning

Song Released: 2007


Valerie Lyrics

Well Sometimes I Go Out, By Myself, And I Look Across The Water.

And I Think Of All The Things, Of What You're Doing, And in my head I Paint A Picture.

Since I've Come Home, Well My Body's Been A Mess, And I Miss Your ginger Hair, And The...

    I interpreted this as a person who is calling an old friend who she hasn't seen in a long while. Much time has passed and many things have changed. She occaisionly thinks of her old friend and wonders what she's up to.The line in her song, "since I've come home my bodys been a mess"I think, refers that she doesn't look the same as she once did.She calls her friend, and wants to know whats been happening in her life,been in trouble?, changed your hair color?, your job,kids, life keeping you busy? What does she shop for nowadays. Are you still as ditzy as you once were, ect ect. She wants to reconnect with an old friend.

    I think she is mentioning her mom. Jail does not mean being locked up but the feeling her mom had in a situation in her life. I am just taking a wild guess.

    Valerie is her when she's on drugs, a different person.

    Drugs are personified into "Valerie"

    I think the song Valerie represents when a person is distant from their loved ones. It makes the heart grow fonder, what I admire about the lyrics is that the very description of images painted from Amy's thoughts and perhaps even her experiences is expressed through this song.

    Though there are many meanings and definitions for 'Valerie' I admire her acapella version because it brings out the best in her voice, I to sing it every now and then.

    Thank you Amy Winehouse for sharing your talents with the rest of us, you will always be remembered through your songs.

    This song is about a girl named valerie that amy winehouse misses and she wants to get back with. When I hear this song I think of a broken love story and two broken hearts.

    a song about a girl who singer hasn't seen in a lobg time, since Valerie was arrested and went to hail for drunk driving... Amy really gets the longing, missing clear to Valerie. Good song for male or female singer. peace

    I believe the song is about missing an ex deeply and wondering how they are doing. Like how it names things about wondering if she went to jail or simply changed her hair color.

    I think it's her alter ego. She's talking to herself when she turns into a junkie vs how she is when she's sober.

    I always think this is about a hooker, not an escort, but a legit hooker who got caught and won't see her clients anymore.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I’d need to analyze with you right here. That's not something I typically do! I get enjoyment in looking at a submit that will make individuals believe. Moreover, many thanks for permitting me to comment!

    I think this song is about a lonely person who really likes someone who is so into themselves that they r ignoring the love they could receive if they would only come over and give caring too.
