Season two of Euphoria has been an emotional, intense and unsettling rollercoaster, even more so than season one, which is saying A LOT. As for where Season 2 left us, while we’re happy for Rue , we have still not recovered and aren’t actually ready to talk about it, so thank you for understanding while we for the time being place all of our attention towards the show’s music.

Like the first season, the show’s atmospheric, genre-twisting music acts as a character in itself all thanks to Labrinth. The brilliant composer who blessed us with an addicting score and undeniable hits "Still Don't Know My Name" and "All For Us" in season one, delivered once again, and this time with a little help from a friend on a thing or two.

During the midpoint of the season, while she might not know it yet, Rue (played by Zendaya) is at a crossroads with the spiraling nature of her substance abuse. Recalling perhaps the most difficult moment in her life, Rue is once again faced to deal with her father’s passing and despite being numb in her current state, all of the emotions that come with it.

During a powerful scene, after sampling from her suitcase, Rue tiredly walks into a church, surrounded by people, including Jules and Elliot, and embraces the choir leader Labrinth as he passionately sings "I'm Tired."

As he’s hugging Rue and he singing, “Hey Lord, you know I'm fighting, I'm sure this world is done with me. Hey Lord, you know it's true. Now the tide is rolling in, I ain't tryin' to win. Let it take me, I'll be on my way. How long can I stay in a place that cannot contain me?" She hallucinates that she is embracing her father, and she apologizes for her wrongdoings.

Written by Labrinth and Zendaya for the show, "I'm Tired,” was created to lyrically correlate with Rue and her journey with substance-abuse, which she’s ultimately tired of.

Since experiencing that scene, we’ve been eagerly waiting to listen to the song on repeat, and now we can.
