9 “Bejeweled” Lyrics That Will Unleash Your Inner Leo

Midnights is so good on so many levels, and each song carries its own meaning. Some speak perfectly to emotions, and others speak perfectly to personalities. Personalities, of course, include astrological signs.

The song “Bejeweled” is one of the most Leo songs I’ve ever heard, and I love it. I am not a Leo myself, but am good friends with Leos. And as an Aries, I naturally gravitate toward this vivacious fire sign. Here are the nine best lines from “Bejeweled” that will spark your confidence and unleash your inner Leo.

1. “I think I’ve been a little too kind.”

I don’t think there’s such a thing as being “too kind,” but there is such a thing as being too passive. Just like you don’t want to be too aggressive, you don’t want to be too passive in life so people won’t walk over you. This is about being assertive—something Leos are very good at.

2. “Putting someone first only works when you’re in their top five.”

I love how this line is all about respect. As an introvert, I have a small circle of friends I rely on and vice versa. Those are the people I truly enjoy spending time with. The people who respect me and challenge me to be better.

3. “When I walk in the room, I can still make the whole place shimmer.” 

This line screams Leo energy. I imagine a red carpet rolls out as this plays. And what’s not to like? You are the only person you’ll be with for the rest of your life, so you may as well shine unashamedly!

4. “Don’t put me in the basement when I want the penthouse of your heart.”

This line reminds us that it’s so important to know your value in all your relationships. Don’t let someone make you feel small or insignificant in any way. You are awesome and deserve to be treated as such. If someone isn’t treating you like that, it’s time to walk away. 

5. “I polish up real nice.”

Being confident in your looks or how you hold yourself in the world overall is always a great feeling. If you’re like me and enjoy dressing up, why not dress up for yourself if it makes you feel good? As Taylor Swift said, “I don’t dress for women/I don’t dress for men.” Dress for yourself.

6. “I think it’s time to teach some lessons.”

The boss energy here is definitely something a fire sign, particularly a Leo, would say. When people try to walk over you, it’s time to put your hand up and tell them to back off. This is unacceptable behavior and should be stopped.

7. “I miss you, but I miss sparkling.” 

This is another gentle reminder on self-confidence: Don’t let anyone tamper with your sparkle. If someone truly respects you, they will never feel the need to make you feel small because they feel intimidated. They want you to shine, as they should. So shine!

8. “You can try to change my mind, but you might have to wait in line.”

Okay, this is a pretty Aries line, not going to lie. But it’s a good line for everyone. Some may call it stubborn, and it can be inflexible, but you should never feel the need to compromise your morals. Evaluate what people tell you, but make up your own mind in the end. Trust yourself to take the process to do the right thing for yourself. 

9. “A diamond’s gotta shine.”

She’s not wrong: diamonds are meant to shine. And so are you! Live your life large without angry regrets. You’ll thank yourself for it later.

If “Anti-Hero” is the song that represents insecurity, “Bejeweled” is the song that represents confidence—and one I hope we can all  strive for every day.
