Lyrics

Yeah?

Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go, uh?
You decide if you're ever gonna let me know (yeah)
Suicide if you ever try to let go, uh
I'm sad, I know, yeah, I'm sad, I know, yeah
Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go, uh
You decide if you're ever gonna let me know (yeah)
Suicide if you ever try to let go, uh
I'm sad, I know, yeah, I'm sad, I know, yeah

I gave her everything
She took my heart and left me lonely
I've been broken heart's contentious
I won't fix, I'd rather weep
I'm lost then I'm found
But it's torture bein' in love
I love when you're around
But I' hate when you leave

Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go, uh?
You decide if you're ever gonna let me know (yeah)
Suicide if you ever try to let go,, uh
I'm sad, I know, yeah, I'm sad, I know, yeah
Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go, uh
You decide if you're ever gonna let me know (yeah)
Suicide if you ever try to let go, uh
I'm sad, I know, yeah, I'm sad, I know, yeah

[Instrumental Bridge]

Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go, uh

You decide if you're ever gonna let me know (yeah)
Suicide if you ever try to let go, uh
I'm sad, I know, yeah, I'm sad, I know, yeah
Who am I? Someone that's afraid to let go, uh
You decide if you're ever gonna let me know (yeah)
Suicide if you ever try to let go, uh
I'm sad, I know, yeah, I'm sad, I know, yeah

Why It Rocks

  1. The beat is phenomenal and well produced.
  2. X's vocals sound good in this song.
  3. The music video is amazing.
  4. This is one of X's best songs.
  5. The song is very catchy.

Bad Qualities

  1. The lyrics are very basic.
  2. The line “Suicide if you ever try to let go” has been extremely controversial, because X is saying that he will commit suicide if his lover leaves him which is considered to be manipulative. However, considering that his previous track "Jocelyn Flores" is about heartbreak after death, it might be intentional.

Trivia

  • The song became the most streamed song on Spotify in a day with 10.4 million plays on the day after X's death until "All I Want for Christmas Is You" took the spot on Christmas Eve 2018. It's also X's most viewed song on his YouTube channel.
