Hug All Ur Friends Lyrics

What's it like to be alone on a Sunday
Remembering the time you saw them just yesterday?
Sing me a song, tell me your thoughts
I could listen to you all night long
And I don't care about my sleeping routine
I fucked it up as it is but we've...

    this is a beautiful song, that has brought tears to my eyes, more than once. i think Robbie, a.k.a Cavetown, is expressing his need for physical touch, something i am realizing i need more than i thought i did. the chorus says, "life's too short to worry about the things that we got wrong so hug all ur friends and let them know youre not letting go" its pretty self-explanatory. dont take for granted the "normal" things, the routine things, and dont let little disagreements ruin and break your friendship. and the bridge "know what its like to be nothing at all, when the night turns cold, my thougths feel like stone and its nothing i cant change i cant breathe anymore i forgot how to walk by myself, i could do with a little more of your help" he's admitting that he feels worthless and needs someone to remind him he matters. and that he cant do this alone.

    This is just my opinion, but for me this song is about committing suicide. Not necessarily the singer, but perhaps a friend of the singer. I think of this song this way because I've had a friend attempt that and I think the song fits that narrative. In the first and fourth stanza where the singer is remembering something hints at past memories, and the eighth stanza suggests that the singer is feeling angry or some other extreme emotion, and that the second person could help if they were there. I think the biggest connection to this interpretation is the chorus. The singer says that 'life's too short to worry about the things we got wrong,' and also about the second person not letting go. Both of these in my opinion point towards some sort of suicide or attempt at suicide because the lines seem to point to or hint at that.

    This song makes me think of one of my friends who used to be really mean to everyone for the validation of they’re other friend group who made them be bad to people just for their validation. Closer to the end of the year they were talking to me and told me about how their friends were treating them and I offered to let them join my friend group. I trusted them and I wanted them to be happier. We all bonded pretty quick and we are happy but my friend is still not able to drop their other friends because they are scared that those people will do something bad to them if they say anything. “I would hug all my friends if they weren’t friends with you” they told me they feel safe with my friend group and I’m so glad about that. I love them so much and I don’t want them to have to go through that again.

    I think this song is about slowly loosing a friend (as many people have said). But I think it’s specifically about watching your friends become friends and with someone who isn’t good for them. You’re watching them start to back away because they’re so brainwashed. “I’d hug all my friends if they weren’t friends with you” is laced with so much hurt and anger, it’s almost like he’s sitting there at an event watching his friends hangout with this new toxic person and feeling so stuck and frustrated, unsure how to deal with it

    I personally think the songs about suicide or loosing friends in general. When i say suicide i mean suicide of a friend. Perhaps the song is spreading a message to “hug all your friends, and let them know you’re not letting go” is to remind you how fast they can be gone. Or if not being abandoned by a friend. I think this as a part of the song says “i would hug all my friends if they werent friends with you” possibly implying that a friend has replaced the creator with a someone he (cavetown) doesnt get along with or in general has taken away his friend. I think the songs about the pain of the loss of a friend (suicide or abandonment)

    Let me just start of with this: This is one of my favorite songs by this amazing artist, and just recently I felt that I should try to analyze this song because I listen to it quite often
