Sam Smith – To Die For lyrics
[Intro]
It is if everyone dies alone
Does that scare you?
I don't wanna be alone

[Verse 1]
I look for you
Every day, every night
I close my eyes
From the fear, from the light

[Pre-Chorus]
As I wander down the avenue, so confused
Guess I'll try and force a smile

[Chorus]
Pink lemonade sippin' on a Sunday
Couples holding hands on a runway
They're all posing in a picture frame
Whilst my world's crashing down
Solo shadow on a sidewalk
Just want somebody to die for
Sunshine livin' on a perfect day
While my world's crashing down
I just want somebody to die for

[Verse 2]
I long for you
Just a touch (Does that scare you?)
Of your hand
You don't leave my mind
Lonely days, I'm feeling
Like a fool for dreaming

[Pre-Chorus]
As I wander down the avenue, so confused
Guess I'll try to force a smile

[Chorus]
Pink lemonade sippin' on a Sunday

Couples holding hands on a runway
They're all posing in a picture frame
Whilst my world's crashing down
Solo shadow on a sidewalk
Just want somebody to die for
Sunshine livin' on a perfect day
While my world's crashing down
I just want somebody to die for

[Bridge]
I just want somebody to die for (To die for)
I just want somebody to die for
(Does that scare you?)
(I don't wanna be alone)

[Chorus]
Pink lemonade sippin' on a Sunday
Couples holding hands on a runway (Oh)
They're all posing in a picture frame
Whilst my world's crashing down
Solo shadow on a sidewalk
Just want somebody to die for
Sunshine livin' on a perfect day
While my world's crashing down
I just want somebody to die for
I just want somebody to die for (To die for)

    This song is actually centered on the loneliness of the singer, specifically from a romantic perspective. For instance, in the chorus it is revealed that when he sees couples enjoying themselves together he becomes filled with a feeling of envy, for lack of a better word. That is to say that beholding their happiness is just a further reminding that he, as Sam poetically puts it, is a “solo shadow on a sidewalk”.

    So the prevailing sentiment of this tune is the artist desiring someone in his life “to die for”. This is a play on words of the popular expression ‘someone to live for’. But it means fundamentally the same thing. And that is it being symbolical of the singer’s want for a significant other, someone he can actually dedicate his all to. Moreover this yearning is accentuated by the fact that he is experiencing some type of depression or unfavorable period in his life.

    So at the end of the day “To Die For” can best be described as a song of lamentation. For not only is it premised on the singer’s depression, but the main point being put across is that his lack of a special someone is eating away at his soul.
