Here are some lyrics from the song "comethru" by Jeremy Zucker

I might lose my mind
Waking when the sun's down
Riding all these highs
Waiting for the comedown
Walk these streets with me
I'm doing decently
Just glad that I can breathe, yeah

I'm trying to realize
It's alright to not be fine on your own

Now I'm shaking, drinking all this coffee
These last few weeks have been exhausting
I'm lost in my imagination
And there's one thing that I need from you
Can you come through, through
Through, yeah
And there's one thing that I need from you
Can you come through?

What's the precise meaning of 'Can you come through?' in this song?

    Welcome to EL&U. Sorry, but song lyrics are usually considered off-topic as they have different requirements such as rhyme and scansion. – Cascabel Apr 24 at 14:15
  • You can project any meaning of come through onto the lyric you like, but only the lyricist would know whether a specific interpretation is intended. We accord a wide degree of artistic license to creative works like song lyrics, so the words do not necessarily meaning anything in particular—they might have been selected simply for being evocative, or fitting the rhythm. I would try a lyrics site like Genius.com or SongMeanings. – choster Apr 24 at 14:25

Given the nature of song lyrics, as with any artistic medium, that they are always subject to artistic interpretation, without consulting with the original artist we can only ever hope to provide our own subjective interpretation of what they meant.

That said, given that the line in question

"Can you come through, through Through, yeah"

was preceded by

"And there's one thing I need from you"

I'd interpret the meaning of "come through" in this context to mean, "come through [for me]". We don't know exactly what the artist is requesting, but the phrase "come through" is a phrasal verb which generally means "fulfill some task". We can't know exactly what the singer is requesting but judging by the following line

"I'm trying to realize It's alright to not be fine on your own"

I suspect that "come through" in this case means "be there for me"

But again, this is all just conjecture
