Alexander 23 falls for someone he can’t have, his “Brown Eyed Baby”


Alexander 23 delves into the complexities of unrequited love in his heartfelt track “Brown Eyed Baby,” dedicated to all the girls with brown eyes!

“Brown Eyed Baby” follows his notable collaboration “Cozy” with Jeremy Zucker and Lauv, which delves into the intimate and comforting aspects of a relationship, as well as his earlier track “Yours,” released earlier this year.

In his recent solo track “Brown Eyed Baby,” Alexander falls for someone he can’t have — his brown-eyed baby. We crush, we love and fall hard, and we don’t always get to be with the person we want to be with. The song explores themes of intense longing, unrequited love and the deep emotional turmoil that comes with wanting someone who is with someone else. Through a desperate plea for the affection of a “brown-eyed baby,” Alexander sings, “But if I can’t have you, I don’t want anyone / So, baby, wake me up when you and him are done.”

Alexander is on his knees begging for the brown-eyed girl to save him. He’s desperate and dependent, longing for her to be his and even reveals the pain and frustration of being teased just enough to keep his feelings alive in the verses, with the “loved by a thousand cuts” capturing the emotional wounds due to his unreciprocated romance.

“Brown Eyed Baby” is a heartfelt, emotionally charged song about longing for someone unattainable. It’s the pain of unrequited love that makes this guitar-driven ballad relatable yet vulnerable, because for Alexander, “It’s your world, I’m just dying in it.”
