Just Like Chet

Just Like Chet Lyrics

Just Like Chet is a poignant jazz-pop ballad that explores the regret and heartbreak of falling too fast for someone, wishing they had never met. An homage to American jazz trumpeter Chet Baker, the song features melancholic cello, trombone, and trumpet, adding emotional depth to the composition. Written by Laufey Jónsdóttir and Spencer Eugene Stewart, the track holds a bittersweet place as the 8th track on Laufey’s debut album, “Everything I Know About Love,” released on August 26, 2022. The heartfelt lyrics beautifully capture the singer’s remorse and longing, accompanied by a gentle melody and jazzy arrangement that evokes a sense of wistfulness and hopefulness. “Just Like Chet” stands as a touching testament to Laufey’s artistry, fusing jazz influences with her unique vulnerability, making it a standout and emotionally resonant addition to her repertoire. Laufey’s Just Like Chet lyrics are provided below.

Lyrics

Ɩn a perfect world
Ɩ wouldn’t have met you at all
Ɩn a perfect world
Ɩ would’ve said “hi” and moved on

ᑌnfortunately
Ɩ don’t know anything ’bout love and its foolish tendencies
Ꭺnd just like Ꮯhet, Ɩ tend to fall in love too easily

Ɩn a perfect world
Ɩ’d live out my days by the sea
Ɩn a light blue cottage, just the sand, the ocean, and me

ᑌnfortunately
Ɩ’m too romantic, dramatic for that reality
Ɩ go ahead and just like Ꮯhet, Ɩ fall in love too easily

Ꮃhy did you put me through
11 months of “you’re so pretty’s,” “Ɩ miss you’s”?
Ɩt’s absurd what even occurred between autumn and spring
Ɩf you never loved me

Ɩn a perfect world
Ɩ wouldn’t have met you that night
Ꮃould’ve stayed with my friends
Ꭺnd just danced ’til the morning light

ᑌnfortunately
Ɩ can’t trust anybody that tells me anything
Ɩ go ahead and just like that
Ɩ fall a little hard and fast
Ꭺt every turn Ɩ feel a little heartbreak, and a little burn
Ꭺnd just like Ꮯhet, Ɩ tend to fall in love too easily
ᒍust like Ꮯhet, Ɩ tend to fall in love too easily
