Die For Me - Post Malone ft. Future, Halsey

The Experience: Said you'd die for me... When love turns out to be a lie...
The Vibe: Accusatory. Bitter.
The Topic: Relationships.
The Value: Hope. Forgiveness.
The Tension: You lied to me (Him: you betrayed me) VS. You lied to me (Her: you betrayed me).

Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Die For Me: Betrayal: said you'd die for me but you lied to me. You were in love and you trusted: I was the last one to know. It hurt because it came on a really good day: It was in V.I.P., happened to be one of my best nights 9 a.m., I came from out the club... caught you bein' vulnerable [to your ex]. We're on Post Malone's side... until Halsey's verse brings us her version: I figured I should follow my gut I don't play anymore, I went through your phone and called the girls in your DM's. She strikes out too: brought some strangers in our bus and now you lost your right to privacy spilling all our secrets when you thought that they'd pro'lly die with me. The conclusion? They sing the last you lied to me together. They both betrayed each other.

Ask yourself: How do you give the gift of trust when it's so easily betrayed?

LYRICS:


(Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
You'd die for me
(Said you'd ride, said you'd ride, but you lied, you lied to me)

Said you'd take a bullet, told me you would die for me
I had a really bad feeling you been lying to me
We were on the low, but you were getting high with me
When it's past 11, that's a different side, I see
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me

It was love at first sight, felt like you were chosen
But that blood in your veins, yeah, I know it's frozen
Got no patience no more, been waiting too long
You hid that sh-t away and I was the last one to know
B-tch, aye, I heard you comin' in I was lying there, awake
Didn't know that it was you, got the gun right out the safe (Damn)
Remember when you got my -ss arrested? (Wow)
At least when I was in jail, I got some rest in
Ooh, I surrender, time to forget you
I'm too tired to forgive you, it's too hard on my liver
And you know it's all over now
All your friends, you know, they sold you out

Said you'd take a bullet, told me you would die for me (Die for me)
I had a really bad feeling you been lying to me (Lying to me)
We were on the low but you were getting high with me (High with me)
When it's past 11, that's a different side, I see
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me (Die, die)
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me (Lie, lie, lie, lie)
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me (Die, die, die)
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me, yeah

It was in V.I.P., happened to be one of my best nights
9 a.m., I came from out the club, it was daylight (Daylight)
Had a bad girl, I was treatin' her too nice (Too nice)
Caught you bein' vulnerable, that ain't what I needed (That ain't what I needed)
You done sold your soul, girl, quit cryin' (Sold your soul)
From your passport, it looks like you lyin' (You know you cold)
You broken down by your past, don't deny it
Your ex called, you was vulnerable, you was flyin' out (Flyin' out)
Wasn't on the best of terms, girl, I was tryin' (I was tryin')
I did everything to reach out to you (I was reachin' out)
Said you'd never have me caught up in no drama (No drama)
I done ran into my karma (I done ran into)

Said you'd take a bullet, told me you would die for me
I had a really bad feeling you been lying to me
We've been on the low but you been getting high with me
When it's past 11, that's a different side, I see
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me

[Halsey]

Settle down, I'll spell it out, it's simple enough
I came around, I figured I should follow my gut
I don't play anymore, I went through your phone
And called the girls in your DM's and took all them home
And I know it's been a while since the last time you heard from me
Grew into a savage and that's why they gave this verse to me
Turns out it shows, 'cause they turn out at shows
I sold fifteen million copies of a breakup note
Brought some strangers in our bus and now you lost your right to privacy
Spilling all our secrets when you thought that they'd pro'lly die with me
And I know you f-ckin' love it on the low
And you don't have to say I'm crazy, 'cause I know
Nothing's changed, honey

Said you'd take a bullet, told me you would die for me
I had a really bad feeling you been lying to me
We been on the low but you were getting high with me
When it's past 11, that's a different side, I see
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me
Said you'd die for me, you'd die for me, you'd die for me
But you lied to me, you lied to me, you lied to me (You lied, you lied)
