“Die for You” by Joji

The addressee of “Die for You”, in this case, is the vocalist’s ex. And what he is letting her know, most plainly put, is that he still has feelings for her. This is despite the fact that Joji has made concrete efforts to get over her, such as “burning photos” which presumably had the addressee in it. 

To be honest, this song is a bit odd in that the vocalist has received report that his ex is doing quite well without him, i.e. alongside her new boo. But – let’s say unconventionally, given the thesis sentiment of this track – Joji actually proceeds to wish her the very best in that regard.

Such a disposition is further indicative of the fact that, as alluded to in the first verse, he is trying his best to take a mature approach in terms of accepting the reality that they have broken up. Perhaps relatedly, that is why he does not express an overt desire to get back with her. But still, the thesis sentiment revolves around Joji reminding homegirl that he loves her so much that he would give his life for hers.
