Lyrics are written from perspective of a person who is looking for a high, some sort of escape from reality, whether it be in the form of drugs, alcohol, or sex. He may simply be...
Give me somewhere to be
Take me to somewhere now
You might as well waste your time with me
If you're gonna be here

Get away from the ones that make you afraid
Down to the last few strands of thought
Making you a target for a fight

Give me somewhere to be
Take me to somewhere now
You might as well waste your time with me
If you're gonna be here

I don't think I'll work out
As a best friend
I don't want to hold you down
I know there's someone better for you
I don't want to be around when you've gotta go

Go away
Go away

    "Give me somewhere to be
    Take me to somewhere now
    You might as well waste your time with me
    If you're gonna be here

    Get away from the woods that make you afraid
    Down to the last new strands of thought
    Making you a target for a fight

    Give me somewhere to be
    Take me to somewhere now
    You might as well waste your time with me
    If you're gonna be here

    Wait

    I don't think I'm worth it
    As a best friend
    I don't want to hold you down
    But if there's someone better for you
    I don't want to be around when you've gotta go

    Go away
    Go away"

    General CommentThis is definitely my favourite song by Toro. This song is the epitome of chillwave.

    I'm thinkin its about a girl you dig and she's blowin you off and avoiding you, and feelings of insecurity. Kind of a sad song really. Haha.

    My Interpretationi think its about the possibility of a relationship ending and contemplating whether or not to continue as just friends afterwards
