I'm a Mess
Bebe Rexha Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everything's been so messed up here lately
Pretty sure he don't wanna be my baby
Oh, he don't love me, he don't love me
He don't love me, he don't love me
But that's okay
'Cause I love me, yeah, I love me
Yeah, I love me
Yeah, I love myself anyway
Hey

Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be okay
It's gonna be a good, good life
That's what my therapists say
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be just fine
It's gonna be a good, good life

I'm a mess, I'm a loser
I'm a hater, I'm a user
I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new
I'm obsessed, I'm embarrassed
I don't trust no one around us
I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new

Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah

Nobody shows up unless I'm paying
Have a drink on me cheers to the failing
Oh, he don't love me, he don't love me
He don't love me, he don't love me
But that's okay
'Cause I love me, yeah, I love me
Yeah, I love me
Yeah, I love myself anyway
Hey

Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be okay
It's gonna be a good, good life
That's what my therapists say
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be just fine
It's gonna be a good, good life

I'm a mess, I'm a loser
I'm a hater, I'm a user
I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new
I'm obsessed, I'm embarrassed
I don't trust no one around us
I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new

Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah

Everything's gonna be alright, alright
Everything's gonna be just fine, just fine
It's gonna be a good, good life

I'm a mess, I'm a loser
I'm a hater, I'm a user
I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new
I'm obsessed, I'm embarrassed
I don't trust no one around us
I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new (yeah)





Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah, ooh, ah

Overall Meaning

The song "I'm a Mess" by Bebe Rexha is a song about self-love and acceptance despite feeling like a mess. The first verse talks about feeling like everything is messed up and that the person she loves doesn't feel the same way. However, instead of dwelling on it, the chorus emphasizes the importance of self-love and believing that everything will be alright. The second verse talks about feeling obsessed and embarrassed about the situation, but still not wanting to trust anyone else.


The repetition of "I'm a mess" throughout the song highlights the discomfort and insecurity that the singer is feeling. The lyrics depict a common experience of feeling overwhelmed, vulnerable and anxious in a situation - in this case, not being reciprocated in love. The chorus represents a message of hope that everything will be alright with the help of a therapist or self-love.


The bridge of the song contains the key message of the song: "I'm a mess for your love, it ain't new." This line speaks to the universal feeling of being incomplete without another person's love and the focus on our own flaws that goes along with it. Finally, the repeating "ooh, ah" at the end of the song signifies a release of emotions, and the song overall is an anthem of self-acceptance and empowerment.
