Walls Could Talk
Halsey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Been about three days and I'm comin' back
I'm about four minutes from a heart attack
And I think you make me a maniac
But you don't know
Two years and we in between
But we both been here since we seventeen
Here we go, fist fight in a limousine
But they don't know

And we both hope there's something
But we bo-both keep fronting
And it's a closed discussion
And I'm thinking, "Damn, if these walls could talk"

(Oh-oh-oh)
Well, they'd be like
(Oh-oh-oh)
"Shit is crazy right?"
(Oh-oh-oh)
I ain't your baby no more

Been about two weeks since you went away
I'm about halfway through a Cabernet
And I go, I'm wastin' a Saturday
Sittin' at home
Told my new roommate not to let you in
But you're so damn good with a bobby pin
Now you gon' play me like a violin
Hittin' these notes

And we both hope there's something
But we bo-both keep fronting
And it's a closed discussion
And I'm thinking, "Damn, if these walls could talk"

(Oh-oh-oh)
Well, they'd be like
(Oh-oh-oh)
"Shit is crazy right?"
(Oh-oh-oh)
I ain't your baby no more
(Oh-oh-oh)
Hey
(Oh-oh-oh)
No more




(Oh-oh-oh)
I ain't your baby no more

Overall Meaning

In Halsey's song "Walls Could Talk," she is reflecting on a past relationship that has left her feeling exhausted, frustrated, and hurt. The lyrics suggest that this is a relationship that has been going on for years, and it has been tumultuous from the beginning, with fist fights in a limousine and the use of a bobby pin to manipulate her way back into her ex's life. However, the relationship is clearly over, and Halsey is sitting at home feeling sorry for herself and drinking wine.


The chorus is the most impactful part of the song, as Halsey imagines what the walls of her house would say if they could talk. She suggests that they would confirm what she already knows - "Shit is crazy right?" - and that she is no longer the "baby" that her ex-boyfriend could manipulate and control. It's a powerful statement of independence and resilience, even in the face of heartbreak and emotional pain.


Overall, "Walls Could Talk" is a song that speaks to the complicated emotions that come with the end of a long-term relationship. Halsey is honest about the difficulties she faced, but also shows strength in moving on and asserting her own independence and self-worth.
