Euphoria Season 2 is bringing in some new music that we can all vibe to. We already talked about Lana Del Rey’s “Watercolor Eyes” from the show and today we bring you Labrinth’s emotional ballad “I’m Tired.” The song featured on the fourth episode of Euphoria S02 titled ‘You Who Cannot See, Think of Those Who Can.’
Euphoria’s story revolves around a troubled teenager Rue (played by Zendaya), a drug addict fresh out of rehab with no plans to stay clean. She befriends a transgender teenager Jules and their world spirals into a thing of romance and chaos. The drama series is filled with scenes of drugs, sex, wild emotions, heartbreak, love, and issues that teenagers face. The second season of Euphoria began streaming on HBO on January 9, 2022.
This is not Labrinth’s first contribution to the Euphoria TV series. For the first season of the show, Labrinth contributed songs such as “Still Don’t Know My Name,” “Forever,” and “When I R.I.P.” However, this is the first time Labrinth himself made an appearance in the show for a cameo to perform “I’m Tired.”

Labrinth “I’m Tired” Lyrics Review and Song Meaning
Throughout the song, Labrinth seems to worry about impending doom. He cannot take this anymore. He is tired and on the verge of collapse. In the scene of the episode, we see Rue breaking down at the church where Labrinth performs the song.
Hey Lord, you know I’m fighting
I’m sure this world is done with me
In the second verse of the song, Labrinth sings how he has no life or energy, or even motivation left in himself to fight what is coming for him. He is absolutely broken and has given up. In fact, he wants the roaring tides to take him with them. Maybe he will find some peace and quiet within the deafening silence underwater.
This song is a cry to a higher power — but not for motivation to hold on. The singer prays that he will not see some silver lining to everything he is going through. Because a silver lining would give him some motivation to keep his head up and fight. But after several hundred of these glimmers of hope turning out to be just more dark clouds, the singer has no strength for faith or miracles.
He just wants to give up.
He is just tired.
