Nobody Gets Me
SZA Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Took a long vacation, no makeup, just Jay-Z
You were balls deep, now we beefing
Had me butt-naked at the MGM
So wasted, screaming, "Fuck that"
Blurry now, but I meant it then
Hurry now, baby, stick it in
'Fore the memories get to kicking in
It's too late, I don't wanna lose

What's left of you
How am I supposed to tell you
I don't wanna see you with anyone but me?
Nobody gets me like you
How am I supposed to let you go?
Only like myself when I'm with you
Nobody gets me, you do (do)
You do
Nobody gets me, you do (do)
You do
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do

Took me out to the ballet
You proposed, I went on the road
You was feeling empty, so you left me
Now I'm stuck dealing with a deadbeat
If I'm real, I deserve less
If I was you, I wouldn't take me back
I pretend when I'm with a man it's you
And I know that it's too late, I don't wanna lose

What's left of you
How am I supposed to tell you
I don't wanna see you with anyone but me?
Nobody gets me like you
How am I supposed to let you go?
Only like myself when I'm with you
Nobody gets me, you do (do)
You do
Nobody gets me, you do (do)
You do
Nobody gets me, you do (do)
You do




Nobody gets me, you do (do)
Nobody gets me, you do

In these lyrics, SZA is expressing her longing for a lost love who truly understood her. She reminisces about their passionate relationship, referencing a time where they were at the MGM hotel and she was so intoxicated that she was screaming "fuck that," but still wanted to be with him. She also recalls him proposing to her at the ballet, but then leaving her behind when he felt empty. Despite this, she still feels a deep connection to him and struggles with the idea of letting him go. She believes that nobody else can understand her the way he did, and the thought of him being with anyone else is unbearable. SZA concludes the song by repeating the refrain "nobody gets me like you do," emphasizing the idea that their connection was rare and irreplaceable.


Overall, the song deals with themes of heartbreak and the struggle to move on from a past relationship. SZA's lyrics are raw and emotional, conveying the pain and confusion that often come with a breakup.

Lyrics
Took a long vacation, no makeup, just Jay Z
You were balls deep, now we beefing
Had me butt naked at the MGM
So wasted, screaming, “Fuck that!”
Blurry now, but I meant it then
Hurry now, baby, stick it in
‘Fore the memories get to kicking in
It’s too late, I don’t want to lose

What’s left of you
How I’m suppose to tell you
I don’t wanna see you with anyone but me?
Nobody gets me like you

How I’m suppose to let you go?
Only like myself when I’m with you
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do

Took me out to the ballet
You proposed, I went on the road
You was feeling empty, so you left me
Now I’m stuck dealing with a deadbeat
If I’m real, I deserve less
If I was you, I wouldn’t take me back
I pretend when I’m with a man it’s you
And I know that it’s too late, I don’t want to lose

What’s left of you
How I’m suppose to tell you
I don’t wanna see you with anyone but me?
Nobody gets me like you
How I’m suppose to let you go?
I only like myself when I’m with you
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do
You do
Nobody gets me, you do
Nobody gets me, you do

I covered my face in shame when I listened to this bc of that feeling of finally admitting that you still have some sort of feelings for someone. Even when they did you so wrong. Thank you for being this real and raw💖
