Cassie
Chase Atlantic Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The writing's on the wall right now
And I'm way too involved somehow
Shit I probably tore her heart right out
At least that's how it feels right now (yeah)

But we're holdin' on, we're holdin' on
We say some words, we land them wrong
Say what you need, then move along
She said its 7 in the morning what'd you take me for

Cassie's been waiting too long
The drug in her veins is too strong
She fell in love with the medicine she's on
Yeah in a matter of minutes her mind's gone
Cassie's been waiting too long
Cassie's been waiting too long

It's kinda hard to deal out there
There's way too many feels out there
She said not if you're a millionaire
And I swear I feel in love right there (yeah)

We take it off, we take it off
She'll get me high but at a cost
I see it in her eyes that girl is lost
But Cassie if you stay with me I'll never stop

Cassie's been waiting too long
The drug in her veins is too strong
She fell in love with the medicine she's on
Yeah in a matter of minutes her mind's gone
Cassie's been waiting too long
Cassie's been waiting too long

She built a world with her own two hands
Well just give that a thought
And she don't ever want to make no plans
Cause she don't go outside no more
She left a dent in my heart as she drove with her car into my life, though




She tilt her head to the side, what a night, yeah
And Cassie don't you overdose

Overall Meaning

The song "Cassie" by Chase Atlantic appears to be about a toxic relationship with a girl named Cassie who is struggling with addiction. The lyrics suggest that the singer (presumably the lead singer of the band) is fully aware that the relationship is not healthy, but they continue to hold on despite the negative impact it has on both of them. The line "The writing's on the wall right now and I'm way too involved somehow" implies that he knows the relationship is doomed but can't seem to let go.


The chorus emphasizes how long Cassie has been waiting for something, most likely to feel better or find a way out of the situation. The drug metaphor is heavily employed, with the singer describing how the drug in Cassie's veins is too strong and how she fell in love with the medicine she's on. This could possibly suggest the singer believes Cassie is taking drugs as a means of coping with her struggles.


The bridge suggests that Cassie is someone who is content with her own little world and doesn't want to make big plans or go outside. The singer is seemingly drawn to her, and in the end, makes a plea for her not to overdose.


Overall, the song is a warning about the danger of getting involved in a toxic relationship and how it can negatively impact both parties. It is also an acknowledgment of the struggles that come with addiction and a plea for love and compassion in the face of those struggles.

Lauren .G It's really not that hard to understand...

@demiworld1011

Lauren .G She means that "Cassie, don't you overdose" is a reference to drugs. They're telling Cassie not to overdose on drugs.
