I Fall Apart - Post Malone




The Experience: The tears keep rollin'... So broken by the relationship's end that you never recover...

Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of I Fall Apart: Post Malone sketches the bottom of a black despair - I fall apart. He was convinced she was the one - you was my shorty I thought. But she cut deep and left him scarred. She told me that I'm not enough. She blindsided him - surprised when you caught me off guard - with rejection when she had already said - we'd be together. And now he's stuck at the bottom of that hole - a feelin' this hard, harder than the liquor I pour and drink keep pourin' and feelin' like I sold my soul. He lashes out at her - devil in the form of a whore - but that doesn't heal anything - I fall apart down to my core.

Ask yourself: Why do people risk loving someone if that means opening the depths of your heart to the possibility of betrayal?

Album: Stoney (2016)

LYRICS:


Ooh I fall apart
Ooh yeah, mmmmm...

She told me that I'm not enough, yeah
And she left me with a broken heart, yeah
She fooled me twice and it's all my fault, yeah
She cut too deep, now she left me scarred, yeah
Now there's so many thoughts goin' through my brain, yeah
And now I'm takin' these shots like it's Novocaine, yeah

Ooh, I fall apart
Down to my core
Ooh, I fall apart
Down to my core
Ooh, didn't know it before
Surprised when you caught me off guard
All this d-mn jewelry I bought
You was my shorty, I thought

Never caught a feelin' this hard
Harder than the liquor I pour
Tell me you don't want me no more
But I can't let go
Everybody told me so
Feelin' like I sold my soul
Devil in the form of a whore
Devil in the form of a whore
You said it
No you said it
No you said it
We'd be together

Ooh, I fall apart
Down to my core
Ooh, I fall apart
Down to my core
Ooh, didn't know it before
Surprised when you caught me off guard
All this d-mn jewelry I bought
You was my shorty, I thought

Ice keep pourin' and the drink keep flowin'
Try to brush it off but it keep on goin'
Covered in scars and I can't help showin'
Whippin' in the foreign and the tears keep rollin'
Ice keep droppin' and the drink keep flowin'
Try to brush it off but it keep on goin'
All these scars, can't help from showin'
Whippin' in the foreign and the tears keep rollin', yeah

Ooh, I fall apart
Down to my core
Ooh, I fall apart
Down to my core
Ooh, didn't know it before
Surprised when you caught me off guard
All this d-mn jewelry I bought
You was my shorty, I thought
