Needy
Ariana Grande Lyrics


If you take too long to hit me back
I can't promise you how I'll react
But all I can say
Is at least I'll wait for you
Lately I've been on a roller coaster
Tryna get a hold of my emotions
But all that I know
Is I need you close

And I'ma scream and shout for what I love
Passionate but I don't give no fucks
I admit that I'm a lil' messed up
But I can hide it when I'm all dressed up
I'm obsessive and I love too hard
Good at overthinking with my heart
How you even think it got this far?
This far

And I can be needy
Way too damn needy
I can be needy
Tell me how good it feels to be needed
I can be needy
So hard to please me
I know it feels so good to be needed

Sorry if I'm up and down a lot (yeah)
Sorry that I think I'm not enough
And sorry if I say sorry way too much
You can go ahead and call me selfish (selfish)
But after all this damage I can't help it (help it)
But what you can trust, is I need your touch

I'ma scream and shout for what I love
Passionate but I don't give no fucks
I admit that I'm a lil' messed up
But I can hide it when I'm all dressed up
I'm obsessive and I love too hard
Good at overthinking with my heart
How you even think it got this far?
This far

And I can be needy
Way too damn needy
I can be needy
Tell me how good it feels to be needed
I can be needy
So hard to please me
I know it feels so good to be needed

Let me say..

‘‘imagine’’ is about having an imagination about what life would be if someone was here with you.

‘‘needy’’ is about how you can be thinking how you can make it without a person but can manage to only be needed for the things you do.

‘‘NASA’’ is about when you need space from someone, but you can’t seem to live without em or be around their amount of space.

‘‘bloodline’’ is about you not wanting alot of someone, because you don’t even want to claim to be all yours, so you would not want them to be apart of you.

‘‘fake smile’’ is about you realizing how the world sees you , depending on your appearance, like if you’re happy or sad or etc, but you try to hide it with a smile, but only can do it so much.

‘‘bad idea’’ is about being self aware about a relationship not going right. but you try to come up with ideas to not make the relationship toxic..

‘‘make up’’ is all about you and your partner trying to make up for the things you have done to each other, good or bad.

‘‘ghostin’’ is about apologizing to people who you reject being with but was happy with and also wishing to do better.

‘‘in my head’’ is about painting pictures in your head about something but it’s all so far from reality, but you try to remain calm about it and move on.

‘‘break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored’’ is all about you wanting someone back or want to break up someone from another person because you want that boy/girl all to yourself for fun.


Hello guys, this is just my theory of all the song meanings, so don’t judge me :)

[Verse 1]

If you take too long to hit me back
Jika kamu membutuhkan terlalu lama untuk menghubungiku kembali

I can't promise you how I'll react
Aku tidak bisa berjanji kepadamu bagaimana aku akan bereaksi

But all I can say
Tapi yang bisa aku katakan

Is at least I'll wait for you
Adalah setidaknya aku akan menunggumu

Lately, I've been on a roller coaster
Belakangan ini, aku sedang berada di roller coaster

Tryna get a hold of my emotions
Mencoba menahan emosiku

But all that I know is I need you close
Tapi semua yang aku tahu adalah aku butuh kau di dekatku.

[Pre-Chorus]

And I'ma scream and shout for what I love
Dan aku akan berteriak dan berteriak untuk apa yang aku sukai

Passionate but I don't give no fucks
Bergairah tapi aku tidak peduli

I admit that I'm a lil' messed up
Aku mengakui kalau aku sedikit kacau

But I can hide it when I'm all dressed up
Tapi aku bisa menyembunyikannya ketika aku berdandan

I'm obsessive and I love too hard
Aku obsesif dan aku mencintai terlalu keras

Good at overthinking with my heart
Bagus dalam berpikir berlebihan dengan hatiku

How you even think it got this far?
Bagaimana menurutmu sejauh ini?

This far
Sejauh ini

[Chorus]

And I can be needy, way too damn needy
Dan aku bisa menjadi berlebihan, terlalu berlebihan

I can be needy, tell me how good it feels to be needed
Aku bisa menjadi berlebihan, katakan padaku betapa enak rasanya di butuhkan

I can be needy, so hard to please me
Aku bisa menjadi berlebihan, sangat sulit untuk menyenangkan diriku

I know it feels so good to be needed
Aku tahu betapa enak rasanya di butuhkan

[Verse 2]

Sorry if I'm up and down a lot (Yeah)
Maaf jika aku sering naik turun (Yeah)

Sorry that I think I'm not enough
Maaf kalau aku berpikir aku tidak cukup

And sorry if I say sorry way too much
Dan maaf jika aku mengatakan maaf terlalu banyak

You can go ahead and call me selfish (Selfish)
Kamu bisa pergi dan memanggilku egois(Egois)

But after all this damage I can't help it (Help it)
Tapi setelah semua kerusakan ini, aku tidak bisa menahannya (Menahannya)

Or what you can trust, 'cause I need your touch
Atau apa yang bisa kamu percaya, karna aku membutuhkan sentuhanmu

[Pre-Chorus]

I'ma scream and shout for what I love
Aku berteriak dan berteriak untuk apa yang ku sukai

Passionate but I don't give no fucks
Bergairah tapi aku tidak peduli

I admit that I'm a lil' messed up
Aku mengakui kalau aku sedikit kacau

But I can hide it when I'm all dressed up
Tapi aku bisa menyembunyikannya ketika aku berdandan

For those who hate Ariana Grande, those who say she’s too emotional and should get over her sh*t. Well did you know..

A terrorist attack at her concert happened, 22 innocent fans died. The ones who loved and supported Ariana. Mindless people blamed Ari for their deaths. Although Ariana did such beautiful things for them. She paid for the dead one’s funerals. She visited the children who were injured at her concert in hospitals. She supported the families of those who died by visiting them, giving them love and money. She even held a concert to raise money for them. Even still, people blame Ariana Grande for these deaths.
Her best friend, and ex boyfriend died accidentally and even though they broke up she’s crying and mourns his death. She was his best friend, and he was hers. Their love was real. But he lost sadly.
Her grandfather, who she loved and supported, tried to battle cancer, but died. Many songs from the my everything album such as Intro, is about her grandfather.
Her parents divorced at a young age. When she was a child, she barely got to see her father. Nowadays, they get into fights about the divorce. They both love each other but Ariana wants her parents to love each other as well.
She had to call off an engagement with her then-fiancé, Pete. She wanted him but after Mac’s death things got complicated. She loved both of them. She thought it wasn’t fair to Mac, that he died and she ended up marrying someone else. To be kind, she had to lose Pete too.
She gets hate. Rumors are spread. They say she’s a weak Nickelodeon girl. Hell, no. If you’ve seen thank u, next music video, and your an arianator, you’ll know the intro is all about the rumors spread about her. In fake smile she sings the line “I read the things they write about me
Hear what they're saying on the TV, it's crazy”
She suffers from PTSD and anxiety. She has said many times in her interviews. She worries about everything. She sang in get well soon “my mind is so controlled by the what if’s”

Well..now Ariana is okay. She fell deeply in love with a man named Dalton Gomez. She dedicated an entire album after him. If you listen to it, you’ll find out. Stay strong, Ariana. We love you.

This song has some type of depressing yet aesthetic vibes. It’s more on the angsty side, but it’s all good. One of my favourites
