George Ezra – Blame It On Me lyrics

The garden was blessed by the gods of me & you
We headed
west to find ourselves some truth, ooh
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?
We counted
all our reasons, excuses that we made
We found ourselves some treasure, and threw it all away
What you're
waiting for?
What you're
waiting for?
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?

When I dance alone, and the suns's bleeding down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control
and the veil's overused,
Blame it on me
What you're waiting for
?
What you're waiting for?

Caught in the tide of blossom, caught in the carnival
Your confidence forgotten, and I see the gypsies run
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting
for?
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?

When I dance alone, and the suns's bleeding down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused,
Blame it on me
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?

When I dance alone, and the suns's bleeding down,
Blame it on me
When I lose control and the veil's overused,
Blame it on me
When I dance alone, I know I'll go
Blame it on me ooh
When I'll lose control, I know I'll go
Blame it on me oooh

What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?
What you're waiting for?

    It actually sounds more like he's talking not about someone he broke up with, but with someone who's almost afraid of him. Someone who is like in love of him and who has a lot of chemistry and the relationship has a lot of potential, but for whatever reason they won't just be with him already because of apprehension and anxiety ("what you're waiting for?"). And in the mean time, their heart is broken about not being in a relationship with him and they love him, and they feel bad about it so he's telling the person, you know, blame all the hurt on him. So like, idk, if it makes sense they got all in a position to be together and for different reasons and different excuses they went and never made it happen. Plus imagery.

    To me, the song is a pantheistic perspective of original sin, and man's relationship to God, sung by, perhaps, an exhausted God tired of hearing his children whine. The original Garden of Eden is a nostalgic reference of better times - blessed both by the external "father" God, but, equally saying that we were all "god-like" and so, blessed by our own inner moral excellence as well (at the time). This garden of innocence was destroyed by a quest for knowledge of good and evil ("truth") - so, its kind of historically recounting what then happened - we headed "west" or out of the Garden that was this perfect state, in a quest to "find ourselves". Here this can even be a sarcastic statement by God - bemused that we would leave perfection for this rebellious quest. Then it's paraphrasing things from God's perspective "so then we found our treasure (Earth) and threw it all away (Eden)", almost saying "so then my children did this"....but, inclusively empathizing partially with their perspective by use of the word "we". From there on it's kind of this self-denigrating, sarcastic complaint, aimed to help us take responsibility for our own part in our problems. "When I dance alone" - God is therefore abandoned by our mindless choice - and "the Sun is bleeding down" - I believe a reference to Christ with a double reference to the Sun God Ra - either way - "God" is suffering as a consequence of our rejection - while we "blame it on me" - is the invitation he gives "hang your sins on me". "When I lose control" - I believe a reference to the Old Testament "punishments" - flood, etc. - we "blame it on God" whereas there might have been unknown legitimate reasons from these things from God's perspective. The veil could be a reference to the Earth's jail-like "veil" that will be "torn" - but here we would see a tired God saying "the veil is overused" - i.e, when I haven't got any more ways to put a distance or create a learning environment for you - "blame it on me". "Caught in a tide of blossom" - trapped in a state of heavenly, eternal perfection - maybe even a solipsistic nightmare? - God is mourning the loss of his creation ..."confidence forgotten" as we are all like vagabonds, "gypsies running" away from the original state of perfection. Therefore, this a song written from the perspective of an exhausted, empathetic, and hurt parent, watching us slowly destroy ourselves and the love that could have been. A reach, but, that's what I hear in it.

    I believe this is a reference to Original sin. They are in a garden and travel west (later banished east of Eden) to find a treasure. When they take the treasure, they "throw it all away." They do not throw away the treasure, they are throwing away the gift of Eden.
    After that anything that happens, we can blame it on him (them) for giving us Original sin.

    To me he seems to be saying that whatever happens to you, you can't blame "god" you've got to take responsibility for your own actions. This is particularly apparent when he says "the veil's overused" in other words, when you're "hiding behind" things such as god instead of owning up to the fact that it was YOU all along (war, death, illnesses, bad things that happen to you in general). Compare with David Bowie's "God Knows I'm Good" (off Space Oddity album) where a woman shoplifting asks "god" to look the other way - but when she's caught shoplifting she asks him NOT to look the other way. Hypocritical.

    This situations around this person are happening but he is not being affected and he endures so he has help from the divine father and the son of man as this is playing out he will take responsibility of their actions but the devil is causing the situations to stop him from experiencing the love of god and the devil saying its not me its people on their own but this is deception of the devil thinking that we are so gullible to believe that it has no part in this when all incidents started from a thought that was a situation which it saw as an opportunity to manipulate and create disaster and to keep people from experiencing the divine father our holy creator god through his son our lord Jesus Christ but the person knows the satin in all its evil can not tough him in thought and situation he says if the lord is with me who can be against me and he praises god the divine and Jesus Christ ant the holy spirit for with out them he is dun.
