11 Minutes - YUNGBLUD & Halsey ft. Travis Barker




The Experience: Why aren't you here..You'll never know what she her last thoughts were. But you can't help feeling she blamed you for not being there. Grief and loss...

Music video: 11 Minutes is how far away she was when she crashed. In the music video YUNGBLUD replays that night 5 times, trying to make it in time to say goodbye. First angry, then in denial, then bargaining, depressed, and finally with the acceptance that allows him to remember past the tragedy to the good times he'll treasure forever.

The Meaning of 11 Minutes: YUNGBLUD yells at himself, sometimes with his voice, sometimes with the memory of hers. I'm so f-cking sorry... But it doesn't matter how sorry he is - I would sell my soul for a bit more time. It doesn't matter how much deeper he wished their relationship had been - lipstick arithmetic didn't stick. But she's gone and he wasn't there to say goodbye - why aren't you here why aren't you here why aren't you here why aren't you here? That failure feels like total betrayal - you run your middle finger up and down my spine11 Minutes explores the worst part about grief. The regrets... and the fact that there's nothing you can do to fix the. You're out of time...

Ask yourself: Have you realized that grief is a form of love?

LYRICS:


[Halsey]
I'm eleven minutes away and I have missed you all day
I'm eleven minutes away, so why aren't you here?

I think I missed you calling on the other line
I'm just thinking honest, got something in mind
Talk a lot, but I can't even read the signs
I would sell my soul for a bit more time
Staining on my body like you're red wine
You're the f-cking acid to my alkaline
You run your middle finger up and down my spine
Sorry there was no one to apologize

[YUNGBLUD]
I'm so f-ckin sorry, I'm so f-ckin sorry
I've been playing somebody and it's helping nobody
And her lipstick arithmetic didn't stick
And now I'm sick, throwing fits
And yeah I've seen you in my head every f-ckin' day since I left
You on the floor with your hands on your head
And I'm down and depressed
All I want is your head on my chest
Touchin' feet, I'm eleven

[Halsey]
I'm eleven minutes away and I have missed you all day
I'm eleven minutes away, so why aren't you here?
[YUNGBLUD]
You're eleven minutes away and I have missed you all day
You're eleven minutes away, so why aren't you here?

[Halsey]
Tell me what you need, I can make you more than what you are
Come and lay the roses on the floor, every single Sunday on your board
I just want to freeze, I can give you more than what you want
Now I see you standing all alone, I never thought the world would turn to stone

[Halsey and YUNGBLUD]
So call me stupid, call me sad
You're the best I've ever had
You're the worst I've ever had
And that keeps f-cking with my head
Call me stupid, call me sad
You're the best I've ever had
You're the worst I've ever had
And that keeps f-cking with my head

[Halsey]
I'm eleven minutes away and I have missed you all day
I'm eleven minutes away, so why aren't you here?
[YUNGBLUD]
(Why aren't you here?)
You're eleven minutes away and I have missed you all day
You're eleven minutes away, so why aren't you here? (Why aren't you here?)

So call me stupid, call me sad
You're the best I've ever had
You're the worst I've ever had
And that keeps f-cking with my head
Call me stupid, call me sad
You're the best I've ever had
You're the worst I've ever had
And that keeps f-cking with my head

[Halsey]
You're eleven minutes away and I have missed you all day
So why aren't you here?
Why aren't you here?
Why aren't you here?
Why aren't you here?
Why aren't you here?
