Lavender Lyrics

Well I've never really been so very stellar
At writing songs for things that make me glad
I try to tell you that I love you
And it comes out sounding like I'm sad
Or maybe I'm mad
Yelling at the world
Am I really gonna be a stupid girl
I'm...

    i noticed the tetris theme in the instrumental, and in this song penelope sounds confused and frustrated, and tetris is a game about connecting pieces, and there’s a line that says “It takes a very special kind of glitch
    To make a monster out of something so kind”
    so i think the song’s about connecting pieces and realized how bad somebody (a lover) is

    This song sounds like communication/social issues in a nutshell, believing that everyone is gonna leave them if they express what they’re thinking in a true tone of voice.

    I see Lavender as a song about a toxic codependent relationship where the speaker would kind of be considered the victim. The speaker keeps repeating “I’m in love” and is afraid for when their partner will “walk away” and leave them too. The line “just giving my all, and turns out that’s not very much at all.” seems to be the speaker trying their hardest to be what their partner wants, but keeps falling flat of what they were expecting.
