Numb: inside the lyrics and their meaning

Numb is about the joy of spending time with the girl you like. Khalid expresses his gratitude for the chance to have fun with his girl, and his happiness is so immense that he wants to get numb at that moment, to celebrate the perfect moment he’s living. That’s what the chorus makes clear:

I, I wanna get numb
And forget where I’m from
‘Cause lookin’ in your eyes
Like lookin’ at the sun
I feel like you’re the moon
I feel like I’m the one

Based on the lyrics, the way Khalid has fun is by getting numb, or wasted, as he says in these lines:

Life’s so short, but amazin’
Late night party in the basement
Hotel lobby and I’m wasted
Just rеached into my savings
I’ll do it too if you take it
Yeah, lifе’s only what you make it

Khalid is pleased about his time with this girl and can’t think of anything else. The singer feels he’s living the best time of his life and wants to remember it as something unrepeatable. That’s why he wants to get high, so high that it will remain marked forever in his memory.

I just wanna get lost tonight and dance with you (Oh)
I just wanna get way too high, let’s set the mood (Set the mood)
You’re my fantasy, yeah, I don’t wanna fall asleep yet
There’s nothin’ in this world I’d rather do

There is nothing hidden behind the lyrics; this is their pure meaning: I’m happy, I feel lucky for this moment of my life, and I want to get numb and remember this moment forever.
