Blackout Lyrics

Play "Blackout"
on Amazon Music

don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this love's too good to last
and i'm too old to dream

don't grow up too fast
and don't embrace the past
this life's too good to last
and i'm too young to care

don't kid yourself
and don't...

    I think this song is split into three parts.

    In the first part, a man is talking to himself. He lived long enough to know what life holds for us.

    In the second part, the same guy talks to a younger person. He shares his experience of life, and gives some advise to live a better life.

    The third part is like a conclusion the man made during his life. He wants to tell the world what he thinks. He uses " we " to show us that we're all the same.

    Don't kid yourself and don't fool yourself.
    This loves not meant to last and im too old to dream.

    I think this means tht this relationship is not going well and they need to break up because he believes tht too much happiness will result in nothing.
    Don't grow up too fast and don't embrace the past this lifes not meant to last and i'm too young to care.

    I think this means tht he doesn't want the relationship to end and tht they don't want to grow up and to not look back or remember their happiness because tht will only make her feel worse.
    Don't kid yourself and don't fool yourself this life could be the last and we're too young to see.

    I think this means tht you shouldn't make yourself believe tht something is good when it really isn't. And tht his life was great but this might be the last happy moment in his life. And tht they are too young to see tht happiness is only hurting their relationship.

    i think he is talking to himself and is realizing tht life does not last forever and he doesn't have forever to be happy. and he doesn't wanna grow up.

    I think this song is actually about a man speaking to himself. He has realized life is ephimeral, nothing lasts, and has decided to live on without wasting his short lifetime ("don't grow up too fast and don't embrace the past, this life's too good to last").
    The lyrics are pretty much just that, but the music adds a sad, depressive vibe to this man's dialogue. He feels sad about his realization, but still accepts life as it is, and goes on.
    Also, the second person talk and some lyrics suggest he might be giving advice to another, younger person.

    Pardon if I wrote something weird or not too clear, I'm not a natural English speaker.

    I think this song means that he is in love with a girl and she loves him to.but something is happening to tear them apart. And he thinks the they have had to much happiness. Something catastrophic Might me happening to one of them or even both and they can't stop it. It may also mean that even though they know it is impossible to stop the inevitable they have to try to stop or they have no meaning to live anymore
