The Brightside
LIL PEEP Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I know that you want me, you know that I want you
The memories haunt me, I know that they haunt you too
But it's alright, you'll be fine
Baby, it's alright, you'll be fine
As long as you're mine, take a look at the time
It gets cold at night, when you're alone outside
But it's fine, I'll be fine
Pay me no mind, girl, pay me no mind

Just look at the brightside (just look at the brightside)
Just look at the club lights (rolling under the club lights)
I gotta look at the brightside (look at the brightside)
I guess she wasn't the one, right
This isn't what love's like
That's for sure

Help me find a way to pass the time (to pass the time)
Everybody telling me life's short, but I wanna die (I wanna die)
Help me find a way to make you mine (make you mine)
Everybody telling me not to, but I'm gonna try
Now I'm getting high again, tonight

I know that you want me, you know that I want you
The memories haunt me, I know that they haunt you too
But it's alright, you'll be fine
Baby, it's alright, you'll be fine
As long as you're mine, take a look at the time
It gets cold at night, when you're alone outside
But it's fine, I'll be fine
Pay me no mind, girl, pay me no mind

Just look at the brightside (just look at the brightside)
Just look at the club lights (rolling under the club lights)
I gotta look at the brightside (look at the brightside)
I guess she wasn't the one, right
This isn't what love's like
That's for sure

Help me find a way to pass the time (to pass the time)
Everybody telling me life's short, but I wanna die (I wanna die)
Help me find a way to make you mine (make you mine)
Everybody telling me not to, but I'm gonna try
Now I'm getting high again, tonight

Just look at the brightside (just look at the brightside)
Just look at the club lights (rolling under the club lights)
Just look at the night life (just look at the night life)
Watching the sun rise by my side
We gotta look at the brightside (just look at the brightside)
Rolling under the club lights (rolling under the club lights)
I gotta look at the brightside (just look at the brightside)
I guess she wasn't the one, right




This isn't what love's like
That's for sure

Overall Meaning

In LIL PEEP's song The Brightside, the lyrics focus on the challenges of a broken relationship and the struggle to move on from it. The singer acknowledges the memories that haunt both him and his former partner, but reassures her that they will be fine as long as they are together. Despite the pain of the breakup, he tries to remain positive and look for the bright side of the situation, even if it means getting lost in the club life and getting high. He questions the notion of life being short and yearns for a way to make his former partner his again, even if everyone advises against it. The song ends with a sense of acceptance and moving on from this particular relationship.


The lyrics are emotionally charged and showcase LIL PEEP's vulnerability in the face of heartbreak. The repetition of the phrase "But it's alright, you'll be fine" highlights his optimism and desire for things to work out in the end. The use of the club lights and night life as a way to escape from his pain represents a common theme in LIL PEEP's music - a longing for a sense of community and belonging.

Neither one actually.
I see him as, someone who understood too much for his own good.
And someone who could never have what he truly wanted the most.
The rest of you seem to be.
Reasons behind his depression, which is proven by the fact that despite he had so many fans of you. It wasn't enough to keep him alive.
Yes it pains me but.
The rest of you ignorant hypocrities on the other hand, shouldn't even have the right to feel sad about him, without understanding him. While you were in admiration with his image, rather with what he truly was*.
That concludes my answer, about "he may be nothing to you".
Thank you for your time and patience reading this.
