us. Lyrics Meaning

I know you know
It felt just like a joke
I show, you don’t
And now we’re talkin’

The artist acknowledges that both parties understood the relationship but it felt trivial or not serious. One person was more expressive (the narrator) while the other was not, leading to a conversation about their feelings.


I know your ghost
I see her through the smoke
She’ll play her show
And you’ll be watchin’

The artist feels haunted by memories or the presence of the other person’s past lover. These memories or feelings are still influencing their relationship.


And if history’s clear, someone always ends up in ruins
And what seemed like fate becomes “What the hell was I doin’?

Reflecting on past relationships, the artist observes that they often end badly, and what once felt destined now seems like a mistake in hindsight.


Babylon lovers hangin’, lifetimes on a vine (Ooh) / Do you miss mine?

Babylon lovers” suggests a doomed love affair, possibly referencing the biblical fall of Babylon. The narrator is asking if the other person misses their time together, despite its impermanence.


Do you miss us, us?
I felt it, you held it, do you miss us, us?
Wonder if you regret the secret of us, us
Us (Us), us (Us), us (Us)

The chorus is a direct plea, questioning if the other person misses their relationship and if they regret keeping it hidden or not fully acknowledging it.


I know you know
It felt like somethin’ old
It felt like somethin’ holy, like souls bleedin’
So, it felt like what I’ve known

The relationship felt timeless and sacred to the artist, something profound and familiar, almost like a spiritual connection.


You’re twenty-nine years old
So how can you be cold when I open my home?

The artist is puzzled by the other person’s coldness or indifference, especially given their age and the intimacy of being welcomed into the narrator’s home.


And if history’s clear, the flames always end up in ashes
And what seemed like fate, give it ten months and you’ll be past it (You’ll be past it)

Again, the artist reflects on the transient nature of relationships, predicting that the intensity (“flames”) will eventually die down and become just a memory.


Babylon lovers hangin’, missed calls on the line / I gave you mine

The relationship is compared to the doomed lovers of Babylon again, with the artist giving their all but being left with unreturned calls and unfulfilled promises.


Did you mind us, us?
I felt it, you held it, do you miss us, us?
Wonder if you regret the secret of us, us
Us (Us), us (Us), us (Us)

The repeated questioning of whether the other person misses the relationship and regrets how it was kept a secret.


That night, you were talkin’ false prophets and profits
They make in the margins of poetry sonnets
You never read up on it, shame, could’ve learned somethin’

Recalling a conversation about authenticity and material gain, possibly criticizing the other person’s lack of depth or insight.


Robert Bly on my nightstand, gifts from you, how ironic
A curse or a miracle, hearse or an oracle
You’re incomparable, f*ck, it was chemical

Robert Bly, a poet known for exploring masculinity and emotion, is mentioned as a gift from the other person, highlighting the irony of their intellectual disconnect. The relationship is described as either a blessing or a curse, and deeply chemical (intense and uncontrollable).


You (You) plus (Plus) me (Me) was

Leading into the final chorus, the equation of the relationship is presented, setting up the reflection on what “us” was.


Us, us, us
I felt it, you held it, do you miss us, us?
Wonder if you regret the secret of us, us
Mistaken for strangers the way it was, was
The pain of, the reign of, the flame of us, us
The outline, well, sometimes, do you miss us, us?
The best kind, well, sometimes, do you miss us?

The final chorus emphasizes the complex feelings of nostalgia, regret, and questioning the other person’s feelings. The relationship is described as having both painful and powerful moments (“the pain of, the reign of, the flame of us”).

us. Song lyrics, is about the complexities of a past relationship, including nostalgia, regret, and questioning the other person’s feelings and intentions.
