: Halsey : Hopeless Fountain Kingdom : 2017
If you listen to rap – and we hope you don’t – you’ll notice that the overriding theme is basically “How great I am! No one thought I would be anything, but now I’m just so great”.
Halsey has a different approach; She’s telling you you’ll be disappointed if you actually meet her, even if you’re a big fan. More importantly, the song is captivating.
LyricsI know you’re dying to meet me
But I can just tell you this
Baby, as soon as you meet me
You’ll wish that you never did
(You’ll wish that you never did)
I stayed a night out in Paris where they don’t know my name
And I got into some trouble with that drink in my veins
I got a problem with parties ‘Cause it’s loud in my brain
And I can never say sorry ‘Cause I won’t take the blame
I know I always go missing And you’re lying awake
But if you ask why I’m distant
Oh, I’m runnin’ away
