Without me


"Without Me" tells the story of Halsey investing in a relationship that she feels was one sided and, in retrospect, recognizes was emotionally dysfunctional, too. Regarding the former lover in this song (whose gender isn't clear, as Halsey has talked a great deal about being bisexual), she begins, "Found you when your heart was broke/I filled your cup until it overflowed.” She said she did whatever was necessary to “keep you close” because “I was afraid to leave you on your own.” Halsey vowed to stay by her lover's side. As for critics of the relationship, she sings, "And if they laugh, then f--- 'em all" (a line that's repeated again before song's end). She then adds, "I got you off your knees/Put you right back on your feet," before singing bitterly, "Just so you could take advantage of me.” Halsey knows this person has betrayed her somehow. And though this man or woman won’t admit it, Halsey's heard from others exactly what went down, which the singer describes in this Justin Timberlake-esque snippet: “You don't have to say just what you did (what you did)/I already know (I know)/I had to go and find out from them.” She admits, “Gave love 'bout a hundred tries,” but also confesses that she took on this person's problems in a self-destructive, codependent way: “Just running from the demons in your mind/Then I took yours and made 'em mine (mine)/I didn't notice 'cause my love was blind.” Halsey also implies that this person achieved a higher level of success due to her help ("You know I'm the one who put you up there"), but then says this ex has turned his or her attention and affections elsewhere: “Tell me, how's it feel sittin' up there?/Feeling so high, but too far away to hold me/ … Thinking you could live without me.”
