“Julia” by Jeremy Zucker
The lyrics of Jeremy Zucker’s “Julia” is a bit complex. Or let’s say that the singer has feelings of both love and hate for the titular “Julia”, his ex-girlfriend. For instance, in the first verse it is revealed that he has memory-based dreams about her which cause him to wake up in an emotional state, even though he does want to remember their past. Yet part of his sentimental misgivings concerning the current state of their relationship is that she doesn’t even reach out to him.
But then in the second verse, Jeremy states that he is experiencing something like a newfound sense of freedom which is the direct result of ‘letting go’ of Julia. Moreover in the chorus he exclaims that he is “through with” her. But that does not mean that he isn’t disappointed that their relationship failed, as he was obviously expecting their romance to last forever.
So conclusively, we can say that in hindsight Zucker does not actually regret breaking up with Julia. However, that does not negate the fact that he still loves her.
