Me, Myself & I - G-Eazy ft. Bebe Rexha



The Experience: And all I remember is your back walking towards the airport, leaving us all in your past. I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you, begged you to want me, but you didn't want to. But piece by piece, he collected me... so I can feel alive... A father abandoned her but a husband restored her faith...



Music video: G-Eazy comes home to a surprise birthday party he doesn't want with people he doesn't care about. The video fades back and forth between the party, key voiceovers, and a wild car ride that ends in a screeching halt - a crash? That would be a fitting end for the hollow despair that fills Me, Myself & I.

The Meaning of Piece By Piece: If you have money, cars, drugs - M and tree - and girls - Stella Maxwell - you don't need anything. Those are the lines and lies that G-Eazy is trying to sell himself as Bebe Rexa sings them. But in the music video, the cynical sad conversation with his multiple selves in the bathroom tells the truth, and after that the lyrics take a despairing turn: Yeah, lonely nights I laid awake pray to lord, my soul to take. My heart's become too cold to break, know I'm great but I'm broke as hell. But the ironic final voiceover rejects any change: this is everything that I dreamed of, and this is just the beginning.

Ask yourself: Have you gotten everything you dreamed over, only to find that it's all empty? What would fill your heart? Do you have the courage to give it all up and start over?

LYRICS:

Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
'Cause I got me for life
(yeah)
Oh I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

And as far as I can see I just need privacy
Plus a whole lot of tree, f-ck all this modesty
I just need space to do me get a world that they're tryna see
A Stella Maxwell right beside of me
A Ferrari I'm buyin' three
A closet of Saint Laurent, get what I want when I want
'Cause this hunger is driving me, yeah
I just need to be alone, I just need to be at home
Understand what I'm speaking on if time is money I need a loan
But regardless I'll always keep keepin' on
F-ck fake friends, we don't take L's we just make M's
While y'all follow, we just make trends
I'm right back to work when that break ends

Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
'Cause I got me for life
(Got me for life, yeah)
Oh I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

I don't need anything to get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
Yeah, it's keeping me alive
(Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything to make me satisfied (you know)
'Cause the music does me good and it gets me every time

Yeah, and I don't like talking to strangers
So get the f-ck off me I'm anxious
I'm tryna be cool but I may just go ape sh-t
Say "f-ck y'all" to all of y'all faces
It changes though now that I'm famous
Everyone knows how this lifestyle is dangerous
But I love it the rush is amazing
Celebrate nightly and everyone rages
I found how to cope with my anger
I'm swimming in money
Swimming in liquor my liver is muddy
But it's all good I'm still sippin' this bubbly
This sh-t is lovely, this sh-t ain't random, I didn't get lucky
Made it right here 'cause I'm sick with it Cudi
They all take the money for granted
But don't want to work for it tell me now, isn't it funny? Nah

[Bathroom voiceover: Happy birthday to G... Happy birthday to- I can't take you seriously right now. Like, let's talk about it. You asked for this. You signed up for this. Ugh? All these people showed up for you, for your birthday, and you're complaining right now? I didn't ask for this sh-t. Quit bein' a little b-tch! I didn't sign up for this, man. You're bein' a h-e right now! I not be like this. It's all different. What the f-ck are you all doing here, man? That's a h-ll of an apartment out there. H-ll full of h-es! You shut the f-ck up! You shut the f-ck up. What are you doin', Ben? Get- Are you cryin' again? If I weren't makin' music they wouldn't be here! Quit f-ckin' talkin' to me like that!  You wanted all of this. You realize- You don't f-ckin' get it! You dreamed about it for years. Don't you forget- Cheer up, you -sshole. You wanted all of this sh-t. Happy birthday G...]

Oh, it's just me, myself and I

'Cause the music does me good and it gets me every time

Yeah, lonely nights I laid awake
Pray to lord, my soul to take
My heart's become too cold to break
Know I'm great but I'm broke as hell
Having dreams that I'm folding cake
All my life I've been told to wait
But I'mma get it now, yeah it's no debate
Yeah

Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
'Cause I got me for life
(Got me for life, yeah)
Oh I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

I don't need anything to get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
Yeah, it's keeping me alive

I don't need anything to make me satisfied (you know)
'Cause the music does me good and it gets me every time

Like ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba

Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
'Cause the music does me good and it gets me every time

[Final voiceover: I was happy when I went home and I sold ten cds, man. So now that, you know, this is everything that I dreamed of. And this is just the beginning.]
