Beggin'
Måneskin Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Put your lovin' hand out, baby
'Cause I'm beggin'

I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, darlin'

Ridin' high, when I was king
I played it hard and fast, 'cause I had everything
I walked away, you want me dead
But easy come and easy go and it would end

So anytime I bleed, you let me go
Yeah, anytime I feed, you get me? No
Any time I see, you let me know
About the plan and see, just let me go
I'm on my knees when I'm beggin'
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Hey, yeah, ra-ta-ta-ta

'Cause I'm beggin', beggin' you
Oh, put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin', beggin' you
And put your lovin' hand out, darlin'

I need you to understand
Tried so hard to be your man
The kind of man you want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell
I used to be
The shadow of my life was hangin' over me
A broken man that I don't know
Won't even stand the devil's dance to win my soul

What we doin'? What we chasin'?
Why the bottom? Why the basement?
Why we got good shit, don't embrace it?
Why the feel for the need to replace me?
You're the wrong way track from the good
I wanna paint a picture, tellin' where we could be at
Left my heart in the best way should
You can give it away, you had and you took the pay
But I keep walkin' on
Keep open the door
Keep hopin' for
That the door is yours
Keep also home
'Cause I don't wanna live in a broken home
Girl, I'm beggin'

Yeah-yeah, I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, darlin'

I'm fightin' hard to hold my own
Just can't make it all alone
I'm holdin' on, I can't fall back
I'm just a calm 'bout to fade to black

I'm beggin', beggin' you
Put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, darlin'

I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, darlin'

I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out, baby
I'm beggin', beggin' you
So put your lovin' hand out

Overall Meaning

The song "Beggin" by Maneskin tells a story of a man who has lost everything and is now begging his lover to come back to him. The first verse talks about how he used to be on top of the world, but then lost it all. He then goes on to explain how his lover keeps leaving him whenever he needs her the most, but he keeps coming back to her because he doesn't want to lose her. He admits that he needs her in his life, and that he's on his knees begging her to stay with him.


The chorus of the song is repetitive, emphasizing the man's desperation for his lover. He asks her to put her loving hand out and help him, because he can't make it on his own. The second verse is a bit more pessimistic, as the man admits that he's become an empty shell of what he used to be. He's lost his confidence and is struggling to find his way back to a good place in life. He tries to convince his lover to stay with him, but wonders why she keeps leaving him, and why they can't be happy together.


Overall, the song is a powerful plea for love and support from someone who has lost everything. The repetitive nature of the chorus emphasizes just how desperate the man is for his lover to stay with him and help him get back on his feet.

For anyone who wants to play this on guitar, here's how :)

- Standard Tuning - Capo 2nd Fret -

- Chords & Strum Patterns Repeated Through The Whole Song -
Am, F, Dm, E7

The strum pattern for each chord that is repeated through MOST of the song is:
↓↓↓ ↓↑ ↑↓↓↓↑
It also occasionally drops down to just three quick down strums, like this:
↓↓↓

Repeat that through pretty much the entire song! :)

Hope this helps out! If you get stuck or need a little extra help, I just posted a video lesson for this on my channel :)
