Louyah,You: the meaning of the lyrics

You is a romantic love song where Louyah exposes his heart and the strong bond he has with the girl he loves. He says clearly that he’s been searching for her for a long time, and that the two are tangled together. It’s his love talking in the song.

And after all
The little things you say may be so unfair
Got your fingers tangled in my hair
It’s like I’ve never known my worth
And when you lie, it doesn’t hurt

The lines in the song alternate expressions of love with other moments of awareness: there are things that she say that may hurt him, there are lies she tells. He still loves her unconditionally, and he suffers for the little things that she does from time to time.

Slowly dancing, wounds are mending
I feel
Your body shaking
You think my love’s unsure
I’ll be the one to judge

These two sides of the song seem to express a unique message for the girl he loves: my love is pure and I count on it, I’ll always be here for you. In the meanwhile, you my hurt me, but I’ll hold up. Maybe one day you’ll understand what you do to me and something will change. But in any case, this is my decision: I decided to embrace the love I have for you, whatever happens.

You
Don’t have to catch me
You
I hope that you’ll learn
What it’s like to hurt
When you fall too low
And when you lie it doesn’t hurt

Your body shaking
You think my love’s unsure
I’ll be the one to judge

The complete lyrics

All these little things you do to me
I hope you know you’re home to me
With your hands around my heart

And after all
The little things you say may be so unfair
Got your fingers tangled in my hair
It’s like I’ve never known my worth
And when you lie, it doesn’t hurt

Pullin’ on my heart
No, it’s not your fault
I’ve been searching for you
I’ve been waiting for you

I guess that I found
Another reason I’ve been holding my smile
When you’re not around
I could never try to get through to you
There’s a rhythm in what we have

Slowly dancing, wounds are mending
I feel
Your body shaking
You think my love’s unsure
I’ll be the one to judge

But I’ll suffer the fall for love

You
Don’t have to catch me
You
I hope that you’ll learn
What it’s like to hurt
When you fall too low
And when you lie it doesn’t hurt

Pullin’ on my heart
No, it’s not your fault
I’ve been searching for you
I’ve been waiting for you

I guess that I found
What it means to be with you

I know that it’s true
Why you walking away?
I’ll be there when you fall
I’m not gonna be here some day
Don’t you waste what I have
Tell me where you wanna go
Let me know
When you know
I’ll be waiting right here for you

Feeding off my love
Addicted to my touch
I don’t wanna be the one to give it all
I don’t wanna be the one to give it all

Pending on my love
I’ve given all my trust
Love you, no typo
And when you lie it doesn’t hurt

Pullin’ on my heart
No, it’s not your fault
I’ve been searching for you
I’ve been waiting for you

Guess that I found
It’s that I found you
You
I guess that I found you
I found you
I guess that I found you
