Annotations and Meaning of Blowing Smoke:

I cut the rope and you fell from the tower
I let it go for my peace of mind
These lines depict a decisive end to a relationship, emphasizing the singer's need to prioritize her well-being.
Tell me, is she prettier than she was on the internet?
Are your conversations cool? Like, are you even interested?
The chorus questions the ex-partner's new relationship, hinting at skepticism about its depth and authenticity.
And I find your books pretentious now
At the time, they'd fed the fantasy
This verse reflects a shift in perception, where what once seemed impressive now appears superficial and pretentious.
And I bet you think about me now
When you should be sleeping
The bridge suggests that despite the breakup, the ex-partner still thinks about the singer, indicating unresolved feelings. Thus, Gracie Abrams' "Blowing Smoke" is a frank look into post-relationship feelings. It unravels skepticism and reflection from the singer over her ex-partner's new relationship. The delivery is through imagery and pointed questions, which, on one hand, strike out loathing but, on the other, signal craving. The lyrics depict a development of self-realization and emotional clarity, pointing out how shallow the actions of the ex are and, at the same time, how the singer has grown beyond the relationship. The song "Blowing Smoke" is really for those whose relationship has ended and for the mixed feelings that it brought. Gracie's straightforward words capture the hard decisions of moving on, questioning the genuineness of an ex-partner's new romance, and locating personal peace. It's a song based on universal—the self-relationship—that doubts the authenticity of the past while affirming growth. There is an emotive delivery in Gracie's voice here, as well as a pretty relatable theme to make this one powerful reflection on love, loss, and self-discovery.

Blowing Smoke Song Lyrics

Blowing Smoke by Gracie Abrams


I cut the rope and you fell from the tower
I let it go for my peace of mind
Bit the bullet, it didn't hurt
But I still hate the image of you kissing her
Chalk it up to "it's all for the better"

[Pre-Chorus]
And I bet you're at her place right now
You're taking off your shoes, she's lying down

[Chorus]
Tell me, is she prettier than she was on the internet?
Are your conversations cool? Like, are you even interested?
I know what you arе, brighter than the stars
Tell mе if she takes you far
Far enough away from all the baggage you've been carrying
Up another hill to all the girls who'll help you bury it
They're just blowing smoke
I'll say what they won't
I know everything they don't

[Verse 2]
I hear your voice like a boom in my tower
I sleep alone, I'm completely fine (Mm)
And you look stupid going out
If she's got a pulse, she meets your standards now?
You feel nothing, and yet you still let her
[Pre-Chorus]
But I bet you're at her place right now
You couldn't point her out in any crowd

[Chorus]
Tell me, is she prettier than she was on the internet?
Are your conversations cool? Like, are you even interested?
I know what you are, brighter than the stars
Tell me if she takes you far
Far enough away from all the baggage you've been carrying
Up another hill to all the girls who'll help you bury it
They're just blowing smoke
I'll say what they won't
I know everything they don't

[Bridge]
And I find your books pretentious now
At the time, they'd fed the fantasy
I was so impressed at your hotel
Took a drag and read aloud to me
And you knew my last love let me down
It was your one perfect opening
And I bet you think about me now
When you should be sleeping

[Chorus]
But tell me, is she prettier than she was on the internet?
Are your conversations cool? Like, are you even interested?
I know what you are, brighter than the stars
Tell me if she takes you far
Far enough away from all the baggage you've been carrying
Up another hill to all the girls who'll help you bury it
They're just blowing smoke (Smoke)
I'll say what they won't (Won't)
I know everything (Thing) they don't (Don't)
[Outro]
And I know, I know, I know, I know
And I know, I know, I—
And I know, I know, I know, I know
And I know, I—
And I know, I know, I know, I know
And I know, I know, I—
