Meaning of Olivia Rodrigo’s Lacy

In the song, Olivia Rodrigo sings about a girl named Lacy who she is obviously in love with.

The first verse describes the girl, revealing that she has “skin like puff pastry” and “eyes white as daisies.” It is also said that she is “sweet” and an “angel”.

In the second verse, she talks about how much she cares about the individual, adding that she is always watching them and lingering “in plain sight.”

It’s not clear who Lacy is, although it sounds like it could be a romantic relationship. The singer has never spoken about her sexuality.

“Smart, sexy Lacy, I’m losin’ it lately” reinforces the feeling that this is a lover, as do the lyrics “I feel your compliments like bullets on skin” and: “And I loathe my jealous eyes and “How much they fell in love with you.”

However, other theories have also surfaced online, including that Lacy is someone she was inspired by or that it is even a metaphor for lace underwear.

Others think she might be a girl who stole Olivia’s boyfriend, thanks to the mysterious line: “You have the only thing I want.”

The lyric video could give us even more insight…

“S” ring is missing from the lyric video

Rodrigo has shared lyric videos for all of the songs in her YouTube video, all of which follow the same style written on a notebook.

At the top of all videos are silver rings in the shape of the letters “G,” “U,” “T,” and “S,” which form the album title “Guts.”

However, Lacy is missing one of the rings, which are all covered in purple crystals. The letter “S” does not appear throughout.

Fans believe this could indicate that the person Lacy is about starts with the letter “S.” Some theories come from Sabrina Carpenter or Taylor Swift.

But until Olivia herself addresses it, it remains a mystery who the song is really about.

Read the lyrics again

Now that we’ve explored some possible meanings, take another look at the lyrics:

Lacy, oh, Lacy, skin like puff pastry
Aren’t you the sweetest creature this side of hell?
Dear angel Lacy, eyes white as daisies
Have I ever told you that I’m not feeling well?

Ooh, it’s important to me, it’s important to me, it’s important to me
Like the perfume you wear, I linger all the time
Observing, hidden in plain sight
Ooh, I’m trying, I’m trying, I’m trying
But it dominates my life, I see you everywhere
The sweetest torture one can endure

Smart, sexy Lacy, I’m losing it lately
I feel your compliments like bullets on my skin
Dazzling starlet, the reincarnation of Bardot
Well, aren’t you the greatest thing ever?

Ooh, it’s important to me, it’s important to me, it’s important to me
Like ribbons in your hair, my stomach is in knots
You have the only thing I want
Ooh, I’m trying, I’m trying, I’m trying
Try to rationalize: people are people, but
It’s like you’re made of angel dust

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Lacy, oh, Lacy, it’s like you’re after me
You poison every little thing I do
Lacy, oh, Lacy, I just hate you lately
And I despise my jealous eyes and how much they fell in love with you
Yes, I despise my corrupt mind and how much it adores you
