“Good In Bed” Lyrics Meaning & Song Review
At the beginning of the song, Dua Lipa sheds a light on to the crippling issue in this relationship. There are no follow-through actions by the guy. He must be quite smooth with his words to have landed this relationship. But it’s a continuous disappointment for Dua Lipa thereafter. Besides the sex, of course.
Dua Lipa wishes that this boy took time to figure out what exactly is lacking in this relationship. But she realizes that her wishes are never coming true. So while she laments in disappointment about this vacuum in their relationship, he puts his hands on her hips and momentarily she is taken to a different world.
Sex is the only good thing in this relationship and this makes her head ignite and hurt at the same time.
In the second verse of “Good In Bed,” Dua Lipa uses slang to go about discussing the topic. She sings about “good pipe in the moonlight,” where ‘pipe’ is slang for sex. They tried to plaster their problems with good sex and those fixes don’t hold up long.
So they can only wait for the inevitable end of this relationship due to lack of an emotional connection.
