The Meaning Behind The Song: “Honey” by Mantaraybryn
I am listening to this song by Mantaraybryn called “Honey” as I sit here in my room, trying to find some inspiration for my writing. The mesmerizing melody and heartfelt lyrics of this song have had a profound impact on me. It’s one of those songs that just consumes your thoughts and transports you to another world.
An Intoxicating Dream
The lyrics of “Honey” are enigmatic, yet they evoke a sense of longing and desire. In the first verse, the singer talks about a dream where honey is spoken about and the voice of the person he’s dreaming about sounds like money. The sweet and alluring nature of honey is used as a metaphor for the captivating qualities of this person. They seem so sweet, and the singer wonders if they could ever meet his mother, despite the distance between them.
The chorus further emphasizes the intoxicating effect this person has on the singer. They are compared to honey, melting the singer’s heart, and even creeping into his dreams. Although there is a sting that comes with this person, the singer remains keen and intrigued, unable to resist their allure.
The Duality of Desire
In the second verse, the singer mentions being in a dream where they are both dressed in tuxedos. This dream might symbolize a vision or a desire for an idealized relationship. However, the singer recognizes that falling for this person might not be wise. They are aware of the potential dangers of getting too attached and hopes to not wake up and go back to square one.
The pre-chorus reveals the conflicting emotions within the singer. Their friend questions if they are truly asleep or drowning in their thoughts. Despite the uncertainties, the sweet and enticing nature of this person keeps pulling the singer in.
The Search for Reality
The final verse introduces the idea of another dream or illusion. The singer questions if this time it could truly be them and this person together or if it’s just another fixation of their mind. They fear that this could be a cruel imagination, expressing a longing for the connection to be real.
“Honey” is a track from Mantaraybryn’s “Black Kemble EP” released on July 6, 2018. The mesmerizing vocals and the dreamlike quality of the song make it a captivating experience for listeners.
As I immerse myself in the beautiful melodies and thought-provoking lyrics of “Honey,” I can’t help but reflect on my own experiences of being drawn to someone’s allure. It’s amazing how music can resonate on such a personal level and make us contemplate the complexities of desire and longing.
So, whether you listen to “Honey” alone in your room like I am or find yourself humming along to it in the car, take a moment to reflect on the meaning behind the song and the emotions it evokes. Let it transport you to a world where dreams and reality intertwine, and the sweetness of honey meets the sting of desire.
