I Miss My Mum Lyrics

Pick up the phone
Make your bed, eat some toast
If reminding's what you needed
Then here's your post-it note
Sing a new song
That's been there all along
Throw it out into the distance
There's no way to sing it wrong
You just need...

    I think this song is about wanting to be taken care of. “Sing a new song that’s been there all along, throw it out into the distance, there’s no way to sing it wrong” I think that this line tells how, when people care about you, they don’t care about how good you are at something, just that you enjoy it. As well as that there’s always been someone who SHOULD have loved and cared for you, and if they didn’t, it’s not your fault. This song is about two people, one of which who wants to take care of the other, maybe because they’ve never been taken care of before. “Buddy, you just need to find home” I think this line is saying that one person is trying to tell the other that they need to learn to be okay with themselves, and they they do deserve to be cared for, not just to care for others.
    “I keep waking up with this weight on my chest, it’s just called being a person I never planned for this” I think this line shows that the person who is always trying to care for others, but can’t accept it for themselves, is slipping into a depression, but they think it’s normal, that everyone feels like this. “It’s fine being a person because I got to meet you” I think this line says that the person is okay with not being cared for, so long as they can make other people happy, because that’s the closest they can get to someone making them happy. Right after this, they other person says, “Buddy, you just need to find home. And I think maybe, you just miss your mom.” This means that the person, despite never having someone, like a mother, to care for them, misses that feeling. They finally admit that to themselves “I miss my mom” over and over again. They’re not only saying that they miss being cared for, despite never having been, but that they need someone to take care of them now. The other person is there with them, and they will learn to take care of each other.
