On the track, the artists trade melancholy verses about overhearing love songs that trigger memories of fated relationships. “I’m so tired of love songs/ Tired of love songs/ Tired of love songs/ Tired of love,” the singers repeat through the drowsy chorus.
Prior to the song’s release, Sivan teased that the track nods to Coldplay and Lorde, adding “i love being a stan.” During his verse, Sivan mentions tracks by the artists: “Hurts Like Heaven” and “Buzzcut Season,” respectively.
The track is Lauv’s first since his duet with now-ex-girlfriend Julia Michaels, “There’s No Way,” which debuted in September 2018. For Sivan, it follows “Revelation,” his musical team-up with Jónsi for the film Boy Erased, in which he also appears.
Check out “I’m So Tired…,” which clocks in at a breezy 2:43, below.
