"Eternal Sunshine" Is About the End of Ari's ShipInstagram

Every song on Eternal Sunshine is an instant Ariana Grande classic, full of deeply personal lyrics and and emotion. But we're here to talk about the title track "eternal sunshine," which appears to be about the end of a relationship and hints at cheating with lyrics like "I showed you all my demons, all my lies / Yet you played me like Atari / Now it's like I'm lookin' in the mirror /Hope you feel alright when you're in her."

When it comes to decoding the lyrics, only Ariana knows what they're about—and a source told Us Weekly that "Ariana is playing with different characters, some of the lyrics come from her personal life, but others are just her playing a fun character for her fans."

That said, "eternal sunshine" is pretty clearly about the end of a relationship, and fans have some Dalton Gomez-themed thoughts:

Check out the full lyrics, via Genius:

[Verse 1]
I don't care what people say
We both know I couldn't change you
I guess you could say the same
Can't rearrange truth
I've never seen someone lie like you do
So much, even you start to think it's true
Ooh
Get me out of this loop, yeah, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
So now we play our separate scenes
Now, now she's in my bed, mm-mm, layin' on your chest
Now I'm in my head, wonderin' how it ends

[Chorus]
I'll be the first to say, "I'm sorry"
Now you got me feelin' sorry
I showed you all my demons, all my lies
Yet you played me like Atari
Now it's like I'm lookin' in the mirror
Hope you feel alright when you're in her
I found a good boy and he's on my side
You're just my eternal sunshine, sunshine

[Verse 2]
So I try to wipe my mind
Just so I feel less insane
Rather feel painless
I'd rather forget than know, know for sure
What we could've fought through behind this door, mm
So I close it and move, yeah, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
So now we play our separate scenes
Now, now he's in your bed, and layin' on my chest
Now I'm in my head, and wonderin' how it ends, ends, ends

[Chorus]
I'll be the first to say, "I'm sorry"
Now you got me feelin' sorry
I showed you all my demons, all my lies
Yet you played me like Atari
Now it's like I'm lookin' in the mirror
Hope you feel alright when you're in her
I found a good boy and he's on my side
You're just my eternal sunshine, sunshine

[Bridge]

Now it's like I'm lookin' in the mirror (Won't break, can't shake)
Hope you feel alright when you're in her (This fate, rewrite)
I found a good boy and he's on my side (Deep breaths, tight chest)
You're just my eternal sunshine, sunshine (Life, death, rewind)

[Outro]
Won't (Won't) break (Won't), can't (Can't) shake (Shake)
This (This) fate (Fate), rewrite
Deep (Deep) breaths (Breaths), tight (Tight) chest (Chest)
