Let's Go - Calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo

Let's go!
Make no excuses now
I'm talking here and now
I'm talking here and now

Let's go!
Your time is running out
Let's go!
I'm talking here and now
I'm talking here and now

It's not about what you've done
It's about what you're doing
It's all about where you going

No matter where you've been
Let's go!
Let's go!

Let's go!, Let's go!, Let's go!...

There ain't no better time
I'm talking here and now
I'm talking here and now
Let's go!

Right now is were you shine
I'm talking here and now
I'm talking here and now

It's not about what you've done
It's about what you're doing
It's all about where you going

No matter where you've been
Let's go!
Let's go!

Let's go!, Let's go!, Let's go!...

Let's make it happen
Ooh, Let's make it happen tonight
Let's make it happen
Ooh, Let's make it happen tonight
Let's make it happen
Ooh, Let's make it happen tonight
Let's make it happen
Ooh, Let's make it happen tonight

Let's go!


Meaning, Main Idea and Message of The Song


I don't know whether it's true or not. But it seems typical for Calvin Harris' song to have short repeated lyric and hence lack of context for interpretation. It's true with Calvin Harris's Feel So Close song which I have interpreted a while ago. It's also true with this calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo's Let's Go song which I'm interpreting right now. However, if those two songs are compared, the latter seems to have more obvious context that the earlier. And so it is easier to interpret. Here is my interpretation.

Based on the lyric above, there are at least three expressions which are repeated again and again. They are 'Let's go,' 'here and now' and 'let's make it happen tonight'. I think the three contribute to the whole meaning and main idea of the song. Combined, the expressions may be interpreted as the invitation to do something instead of staying idle and do nothing. However, the main idea of the song is clearly seen in the third verse. So I conclude that this song is a kind of persuasion for us to focus on our act on the future instead of regretting our past, however bad it was. Moreover, with three phrases repeated again and again above, the singer seems to demand the change of attitude, namely from being stuck in the past to focusing on our future, right now. Well, that's what we have to do if we want to change: begin the new habit right here and right now. Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today. So, let's go change to be better.

Well, that's my interpretation of Calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo's Let's Go song. Feel free to comment.
