Bad For Me
KID LAROI Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I gave you all of me for none of you
Something that I don't ever do
You made me feel like I'm not good enough, yeah
And I don't wanna walk away, that's the last thing that I want, but hey
I guess right now I have to do whatever's best for me (best for me)

I can't hold my breath no more
Tired of your selfish love
I can't be what you want
But I still wanna be loved
Never asked for nothin' else
I gotta do this for myself
I believed you loved me, girl
When I couldn't even love myself

I'm afraid of myself
You taught me how to hate myself
For you, oh, girl, I changed myself
And chained myself down
And then I start to blame myself
Back and forth with my head
Thinkin' 'bout what all you said
I swear it's been a week since I slept
'Cause mine don't feel the same as your bed
This ain't love, it's hard to fake it
You ain't mine, it's hard to face it
All of the time I wasted
I really tried to save us but

I can't hold my breath no more
Tired of your selfish love
I can't be what you want
But I still wanna be loved
Never asked for nothin' else
I gotta do this for myself




I believed you loved me, girl
When I couldn't even love myself

Overall Meaning

In "Bad For Me," KID LAROI sings about a toxic relationship where he gave his all to someone who did not reciprocate the same type of love or respect. He struggles with the idea of walking away because he still loves the person, but he knows it's the right thing to do for his own well-being. He feels suffocated and exhausted by the selfish nature of the relationship and realizes he can no longer try to be what the other person wants. The other person has made him feel inadequate, and he has lost sight of his worth. He has even learned to hate himself, and this has had a profound impact on his mental health. He recognizes that the relationship is not love but, instead, something that's hard to fake. Despite all of this, he still yearns for love. His ultimate decision is to choose himself and walk away.


The lyrics express the pain and confusion of a toxic relationship and the emotional toll it takes. The lines "I'm afraid of myself, you taught me how to hate myself" highlights how easily someone can lose themselves in a relationship where they are not being treated with the love and respect they deserve. The lyrics reveal the importance of understanding one's self-worth and being able to walk away from something that is ultimately bad for one's health and well-being.
