Lyrics Review and Song Meaning of “Blow That Smoke”
‘Darkness’ refers to moments when you feel or are let down. These times make anyone emotional and vulnerable. However, nobody can just lay down and wait for the darkness to pass. They have to light up something. Sometimes a white lie may help you or somebody else to light up the darkness.
‘Blowing the smoke’ in this song refers to blowing wind at a fading fire (smoke) so that the fire will ignite once more. Tove Lo hints that ‘love’ will be the fire that brights up somebody’s dark times.
She says she does not want just memories. She wants to keep the blaze of love alive. She wants the full experience, not just memories.
A broken bed may refer to a distorted house or a relationship, and she is losing her mind. However, this crazy madness of love is so good for her. She feels so good in love.
Tove Lo says that her lover is living the life. Pretty pictures of probably nice hotels, exotic holidays, jewellery and what not makes her dream of sharing them with him someday. But he is deceiving-may be this is why she is losing her mind in the madness.
However, the singer says she is in too deep in this relationship that she cannot back down now. She is invested in this crazy ride that is called love.
“Blow That Smoke” single is definitely a catchy tune and the music video is going to be fire. We can already imagine a dozen models dancing in a frenzy to this beat.
