LIL PEEP Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Leave me alone, just leave alone
I'm growin' so tired of this
How do you fight the feelin'?
How do you fight the feelin', bitch?
She callin' my phone, she callin' my phone
I put it on quiet quick
I ain't never gon' answer it
I ain't never gon' pick up my phone, girl

I'm all on my own, I'm all on my own
I know you ain't high as this
Puttin' my mind to shit
Give me some time, I'll be flyin' bitch
Breakin' my bones, you breakin' my bones
You want me to line my wrist
I ain't gon' do it for you
I'm gon' do it for me, 'cause it help me forget
I ain't gon' do it for you
I'm gon' do it for me, 'cause I'm tryna get rich
I ain't gon' put on no Tommy
If I don't got Tommy to put on my bitch
Doin' my thing, now, bitch, I can sing
So don't expect all my flows, I just switch
Step in this bitch, let these hoes feel my drip
If you ain't smokin' on somethin', I'ma dip (skrt)

Leave me alone, just leave alone
I'm growin' so tired of this
How do you fight the feelin'?
How do you fight the feelin', bitch?
She callin' my phone, she callin' my phone
I put it on quiet quick
I ain't never gon' answer it
I ain't never gon' pick up my phone, girl

When you are on your own
Just know that I need you




I won't pick up the phone
Just know that I need you

Overall Meaning

The song "Ghost Boy" by Lil Peep is a melancholic reflection on the challenges of fame and the anxiety that comes with it. The opening lines "Leave me alone, just leave alone, I'm growin' so tired of this" suggest that the artist is feeling overwhelmed and needs space from the constant attention and pressure that comes with being a public figure. He asks rhetorically, "How do you fight the feelin'?" suggesting that the burden he feels has become a constant presence in his life.


The mention of the phone ringing repeatedly throughout the song implies that the artist is bombarded with requests and demands from fans, the media, and other people trying to enter his life. He puts the phone on silent and refuses to answer it, demonstrating a desire for solitude and privacy. He speaks of the struggle to cope with addiction and self-harm, saying that he won't hurt himself for anyone else, but only for himself.


The repetition of the line "Just know that I need you" at the end of the song is a poignant plea for understanding and support from the people close to him in this time of difficulty. It suggests that while he may want to be left alone, he also craves connection and companionship.

[Chorus]
Leave me alone, just leave me alone
I’m growin' so tired of this
How do you fight the feelin'?
How do you fight the feelin', bitch? (Bitch)
She callin' my phone, she callin' my phone
I put it on quiet quick (Quick)
I ain’t never gon’ answer it
I ain’t never gon’ pick up my phone girl

[Verse]
I’m all on my own, I’m all on my own
I know you ain’t high as this
Puttin' my mind to shit
Give me some time I be flyin' bitch
Breakin' my bones, you breakin' my bones
You want me to line my wrist
I ain’t gon’ do it for you
I’m gon’ do it for me, 'cause it help me forget
I ain’t gon’ do it for you
I’m gon’ do it for me 'cause I'm tryna get rich
I ain’t gon' put on a Tommy
If I don't got Tommy to put on my bitch
I’m doin' my thing
Now, bitch, I can sing, so don’t expect all my flows, I just switch
Step in this bitch, let these hoes feel my drip
If you ain’t smokin' on some, I'ma dip (Skrrt)

[Chorus]
Leave me alone, just leave me alone
I’m growin' so tired of this (What)
How do you fight the feelin'?
How do you fight the feelin', bitch? (Bitch)
She callin' my phone, she callin' my phone
I put it on quiet quick
I ain’t never gon’ answer it
I ain’t never gon’ pick up my phone girl

[Outro]
When you are on your own
Just know that I love you
I won't pick up the phone
Just know that I need you
