Trip - Ella Mai




The Experience: You know your love is big enough, make me trip up on you... You found love and it's so good you're freaking out...


Music video: The music video focuses on Ella Mai's feelings - he doesn't even show, with the exception of one phone call she doesn't answer. Her happiness. Her fear of losing him and ending up alone. Her yearning for his company, underlined and highlighted and worsened by the empty driver's seat right next to her.

The Meaning of Trip: Ella Mai delves into the awe and marvel of falling in love. She doesn't deserve him - you take the bullet tryna save me then I'm left to deal with makin' you bleed. She's completely happy with him - you know your love is big enough. But she's also afraid of losing it - just too bitter for worse, don't wanna taste it and not making it. It's like torture - trippin' - except that it's being too happy that hurts. Not because it's bad, but because it's overwhelming.

Ask yourself: How badly do you need love? Friendship? Company?

Album: Ella Mai (2018)

LYRICS:


Ooh, yeah, yeah

I put my feelings on safety
So I don't go shootin' where your heart be
'Cause you take the bullet tryna save me
Then I'm left to deal with makin' you bleed

And that's a whole lotta love, ain't tryna waste it
Like we be runnin' a mile to never make it
That's just too bitter for worse, don't wanna taste it
That's just too bitter for worse, don't wanna face it

But I think that I'm done trippin', I'm trip-trippin'
I've been sippin', that's how I control
This feelin', you keep givin'
You keep on hittin' it, ooh, oh
Maybe it's your love, it's too good to be true
Baby boy, your love, got me trippin' on you
You know your love is big enough, make me trip up on you
Yeah, it's big enough, got me trippin' on you, trip-trippin' on you

My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you)
My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you)

Boy, you know we cool when I ain't waitin'
But I act a fool when I don't get it
And I'm steady bruisin' just to save this
But I tripped on your love, now I'm addicted

And that's a whole lotta love, ain't tryna waste it
Like we be runnin' a mile to never make it
That's just too bitter for worse, don't wanna taste it
That's just too bitter for worse, don't wanna face it

But I think that I'm done trippin', I'm trip-trippin'
I've been sippin', that's how I control
This feelin', you keep givin'
You keep on hittin' it, ooh, oh
Maybe it's your love, it's too good to be true
Baby boy, your love, got me trippin' on you
You know your love is big enough, make me trip up on you
Yeah, it's big enough, got me trippin' on you, trip-trippin' on you

My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you, trippin' on you)
My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you, trippin' on you)

That's some kind of love, baby (Drip, drip)
That's the type of love, make me (Trip, trip, trippin' on you)
It's big enough, make me (Drip, drip)
It's big enough, got me (Trip, trip, trippin' on you)

I'm done trippin', I'm trip-trippin'
I've been sippin', that's how I control
This feelin', you keep givin'
You keep on hittin' it, ooh, oh
Maybe it's your love, it's too good to be true
Baby boy, your love, got me trippin' on you
You know your love is big enough, make me trip up on you
Yeah, it's big enough, got me trippin' on you, trip-trippin' on you

My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (My bad, my bad, my bad, trippin' on you, yeah)
My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you, trippin' on you, baby)
My bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you)
Said I admit I was wrong when I did it
My bad, my bad, my bad for, trippin' on you (Trippin' on you, trippin' on you)

Trippin' on you, yeah, yeah
Ooh, yeah, yeah
