Troye Sivan – Take Yourself Home lyrics
[Chorus]
I'm tired of the city, scream if you're with me
If I'm gonna die, let's die somewhere pretty, ah, ah-ah
Sad in the summer, city needs a mother
If I'm gonna waste my time then it's time to go
Take yourself home

[Verse 1]
Talk to me
There's nothing that can't be fixed with some honesty
And how it got this dark is just beyond to me
If anyone can hear me, switch the lights, oh
And happiness is right there where you lost it
When you took the bet
Counting all the losses that you can't collect
Got everything and nothing in my life

[Chorus]
I'm tired of the city, scream if you're with me
If I'm gonna die, let's die somewhere pretty, ah, ah-ah
Sad in the summer, city needs a mother
If I'm gonna waste my time then it's time to go
Take yourself home
Take yourself home


[Verse 2]
Who you really tryna be when you see your face?
Is it worth it trying to win in a losing game?
Well, it's all waiting for you
And, boy, I know you're eager
But it just might destroy you
Destroy you, yeah

[Chorus]
I'm tired of the city, scream if you're with me
If I'm gonna die, let's die somewhere pretty, ah, ah-ah
Sad in the summer, city needs a mother
If I'm gonna waste my time then it's time to go
Take yourself home
Take yourself home (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Take yourself home

[Outro]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Tired of the city
Scream if you're with...

[Break]

    The lyrics of Troye Sivan’s “Take Yourself Home” find him talking about not wanting to be in the city anymore because he’s so tired of it. He expresses a really strong desire to leave the city. But exactly where he wants to go isn’t clearly stated. What is abundantly clear is that he wants to make his way to a place that is not only pretty but also very welcoming.
    Apparently the city in which he finds himself is causing him so much depression due to it not being beautiful and welcoming. And for some reason he anticipates he’d meet his demise there. And the last thing he wants happening to him is dying in the cold bosom of the city. He’d rather die somewhere else – “somewhere pretty”. And this place where he hopes to be and die might be what he refers to as “home”.
    The song was released in the wake of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic (which forced countless cities all over the world to go on lockdown). And it is apparent that this is what is making the narrator not like the big city anymore as it is deserted, depressing and extremely dangerous.
    Actually in talking about the song, Sivan revealed that it was inspired by the current happenings around the world.
    Sivan has described this song as something more like “a pep talk” with oneself and where one comes from. He further stated that the lyrics are about grappling with “your place in the world”. According to him, “Take Yourself Home” happens to be one of his favorite self-penned songs.
