This is so easy and yet it haunts my soul. I think about somebody walking in the desert on their own, damaged and bruised. When this person does not even know the place he/she will be going. However, he/she simply needed to get out of there. Like a metaphor for a failing relationship. And at last, realizing that the person is worth it. That he/she is worthy to be pleased and to seek out someone that can make him/her happy and contented.

Definitely, something that every one of us had experienced a few times in our life. I really like this track. Undoubtedly an addition to my ever-growing playlist of emo songs.

Structure


Intro

Verse 1

I’ve been holding my breath, I’ve been counting to ten
Over something you said, I’ve been holding back tears,
While you’re throwing back beers, I’m alone in bed.

Pre-Chorus

You know I-I, I, I’m afraid of change.
Guess that’s why we stay the same.

Chorus

So tell me to leave, I’ll pack my bags, get on the road.
Find someone that loves you, better than I do, darling, I know.
‘Cause you remind me every day, I’m not enough, but I still stay.

Verse 2

Feels like a lifetime, just trying to get by while we’re dying inside.
I’ve done a lot of things wrong, loving you being one.
But I can’t move on…

Pre-Chorus

You know I-I, I, I’m afraid of change.
Guess that’s why we stay the same.

Chorus

So tell me to leave, I’ll pack my bags, get on the road.
Find someone that loves you, better than I do, darling, I know.
‘Cause you remind me every day, I’m not enough, but I still stay.

Interlude

You remind me every day, I’m not enough, but I still stay.

Conclusion

Based on Noah Cyrus’s personal words, this track is supposed to have a positive message. Its lyrics reflect a precise period in her life when she “felt like (she) amounted to nothing to someone and never felt good enough for them”.

However, that’s the premise of “July”, not its conclusion. Quite the track is supposed to espouse a message of people “walking away from the baggage”. Put in a different way, it encourages us to walk away from emotionally depressing experiences which continue to weigh us down, even though Noah acknowledges that doing so “is tough, and it hurts”.
