Don't You Dare Forget the Sun Lyrics

You're a mess, tangled with your confidence.
You think you haven't sinned.
Well, you're unstoppable,
Your walls are impassible.
Oh, I think you're better off looking alone.
'Cause the boys that chase your hips can just go find their way...

    When I think of this song I think about how bad mine and my dads' relationship is. To me I think about how my depression, PTSD, anxiety and being lesbian has made my dad almost not even want me in the same house. My dad once told me that I just a "product" to a guy because I like girls, so they would use me then throw me out. He talked about how me wanted to was fake and I just wanted attention, saying that I messed up his family. He told me he never thought that he would have a kid like me and be this hard.

    I think the song means doing things because we think that's what people want (sending nudes and having sex at a young age). And after we've done those things, it impacts our mental health in a bad way. This is kinda just an interpretation for kids and young teens who like the song, like me, and want to know the exact meaning (or almost exact meaning) of the song.

    The first stanza seems to take talk about some who is using their body for attention even though they known it isn't right. The second stanza goes on about how they are becoming severely depressed, to the point of suicidal ideations. The third stanza seems to be talking bout them being in a psychological medical facility for self-harm and a possible suicide attempt. The four stanza (though similar to the second one) makes it seem as through the singer is the clinician that is suppose to be helping them and making a breakthrough. The fifth stanza presents a bit of the results of that breakthrough with the person asking for a sign to prove that they do deserve to live happily. With the six stanza, it is safe to assume that the sign hadn't come and they become depressed once again. The final stanza, I believe, is up to the audience decision. The first part is the person's depressive thought, then you can decide if the last line is the person trying to attempt again or them trying to rid themself of the depressive thought.

    I tend to apply songs to my own life. The song reminds me of how ashamed I am that when I was in middle school, I would do sexual roleplay with adults and send nudes for attention. I thought I was fine, I thought I was doing what was best for me, but it wasn’t. The shame and mental impacts of the things I’ve gone through have just ripped me apart. The part about wanting to stab again reminds me of being in a psych ward for a time.. I also used to think the line was “Your body isn’t proud of being sold on a shelf” so I guess that may have impacted my feelings on it.

    It just simply meant to never lose hope even if you're under the worst circumstances,from the line "Dont you dare forget the sun love".This singer try to imply by becoming strong enough to witstand your own darkess mind

    Well it most likely about suicide, and partially it about someone kind of looking for another to come along and wipe away their tears hence said in this part "Dear diary, life is trying me can I get a sign or a TWO of mind a piece of mind." Two meaning a sign as in someone telling them it is gonna be ok and you don't need to die to make people happy.

    I think the song is about someone who's in coma; "well I know you lay in bed, contemplating your own death". He/she is between life and death. He/she and wasn't taking care of him/herself ( that's mostly what brought him/her into coma ) and was mutilating him/herself ( "you just wanna stab again" and "you can dig so deep for scars" ). Also, there's an artificial breathing sound at a moment. And all of this is because of depression. Now he/she's at the hospital ( "cold white walls..." ). His/her lover came to see the person to "talk" with him/her and say "breathe with me" and " don't you dare forget the sun". That means "don't lose hope".
    Now they're both kind of desperate ( "dear diary, life is trying me, can I get a sign ? Or a two of mind, a piece of mind ?" ).

    This song is about somebody who is known by the singer who is suicidal and has been thinking about it for a long time.
