(+Lyrics + Meaning + Translation) Music review: Without me by Halsey

Without me is a song by “American Singer “Ashley Nicolette Frangipane aka #Halsey. 

What is the song “Without me” by Halsey about?

The song is about Halsey’s relationship with a guy. She showed love to a guy who was trampled emotionally. He was downcast. But the moment his spirit was elevated, he felt the artist was no longer relevant in his life. Even though Halsey went the extra mile to make him happy again (even if it means dissatisfying herself to satisfy him), the guy ended up toying with her heart.

Lyrics to without me by Halsey

Intro

Beatz

Verse 1

Found you when your heart was broke

 I filled your cup until it overflowed

 Took it so far to keep you close (Keep you clo-oose)

 I was afraid to leave you on your own

Pre-chorus

I said I’d catch you if you fall (Falllll)

 And if they laugh, then fuck them all (Alllll)

 And then I got you off your knees

 Put you right back on your feet

 Just so you can take advantage of me

Chorus

Tell me how does it feel sitting up there

Feeling so high but too far away to hold me

You know I’m the one who put you up there

Being in the sky

Does it ever get lonely?

Thinking you could live without me

Thinking you could live without me

Baby, I’m the one who put you up there; I don’t know why 

Thinking you could live without me; live without me

Baby, I’m the one who put you up there; I don’t know why

Verse 2

Gave love about a hundred tries (Hundred tries)

Just running from the demons in your mind

Then I took yours and made them mine (Made them mine)

I didn’t notice ’cause my love was blind

Pre-chorus

I said I’d catch you if you fall

And if they laugh, then fuck them all 

And then I got you off your knees

Put you right back on your feet

Just so you can take advantage of me

Chorus

Tell me how does it feel sitting up there

Feeling so high but too far away to hold me

You know I’m the one who put you up there

Being in the sky

Does it ever get lonely?

Thinking you could live without me

Thinking you could live without me

Baby, I’m the one who put you up there; I don’t know why 

Thinking you could live without me; live without me

Baby, I’m the one who put you up there; I don’t know why

Bridge

You don’t have to say just what you did, I already know (I know)

 I had to go and find out from them. So tell me how does it feel (oh-oh oh oh oh)

Chorus

Tell me how does it feel sitting up there

Feeling so high but too far away to hold me

You know I’m the one who put you up there

 Being in the sky

Does it ever get lonely?

Thinking you could live without me

Thinking you could live without me

Baby, I’m the one who put you up there; I don’t know why ( I don’t know why)

The Review

Lyrically: The song comes in two verses made up of 4 short lines each. The chorus was done three times while the pre-chorus was done two times. The lyrics are soulful, well-written, organized, and are in English. The lyrics also flowed perfectly with the beat.

The song is meaningful. It talks about how Halsey showed and gave love to a guy who was disheartened after someone trampled his emotions. Even though she went the extra mile to elevate his spirit, the guy ended up toying with her heart.

Song arrangement– Verse 1-Pre Chorus- Chorus- Verse 2- Pre Chorus- Chorus- Interlude- Chorus

I observed that the Bridge is the same as that of Justin Timberlake’s in the song cry me a river; just a slight difference.

“You don’t have to say, what you did, I already know, I found out from him”

Breakdown of the song

In Verse 1:  “Found you when your heart was broke “Halsey revealed that she met her guy when he was emotionally trampled and dispirited. Halsey heartened the guy. She went the extra mile for him. She was always around him and ensured he was okay. She did everything just to elevate his spirit again and never for once wanted to leave his sight so that nothing would happen to him.

In the Pre-chorus: “I said I’d catch you if you fall” she vowed to always protect him and still stick with him even if they are mocking them. She lets us understand that she took away his weakness, fears, humiliation, and downcast and put him back on good standing. However, despite how she treated him, he ended up toying with her emotions.

In the chorus: “Tell me how does it feel sitting up there” she said after putting him back in a good mood/standing and placing him so high, he became difficult to reach him. He was far away from her that she wasn’t getting his attention again. He felt she was no longer relevant and wanted to do away. She however reminded him that she is the reason his spirit is elevated and wondered why she took it upon herself to help him when he was disheartened.

In Verse 2: “Gave love about a hundred tries (hundred tries)” she says she accepted everything about the guy; both good and bad. She said she was too deeply in love or blinded by love that she did not notice that he was just toying with her emotions.

Meaning of some words

Overfilled– Having more than should contain in a jar till it starts spilling; excessive.

Keep someone close– To always be around someone. Never too far away from someone, making sure he is always nearby. Never wanting to leave someone’s sight to observe them.

Too far-Taking simple matters to the extreme or an excessive degree.

On their feet– Ability to regain or recover self after heartbreak, sickness, or difficult periods.

Take advantage of someone– To exploit someone because of their loyalty, submissiveness, gentle nature, etc for one’s gain.

 Love is blind– To love someone dearly thereby ignoring and accepting all his wrong acts. To love someone in such a way that you don’t see their wrongs.

Location

They used mostly outdoor scenes (walkways and streets). There were also indoor scenes (Bars and an apartment)

Sound

Melodious! Very appealing to the ears. The artiste has got an attractive vocal and was quite soulful as she sang the lyrics. The lyrics flowed well with the beat. She was also consistent with the style of rhythm. The drums and piano used to make the beat enhanced the beauty of the song.

Video production

Great visual! The video complements the track. Her soulful expressions really reflect the massage of the song. She was able to put real feelings into the song coupled with the fact that her vocal was rich and expressive; perhaps the reason the song still enjoys massive airplay.

Duration: 3 minutes 56 seconds
