Here Are the Lyrics to Halsey's 'Without Me'

Brian Ziff
Halsey

Halsey breaks into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week with her new song "Without Me." The singer recently released a vertical video on Spotify for the single on Oct. 12, delivering an emotional performance while being soaked by pouring rain. Halsey originally shared the personal song to Twitter, which fans speculate addresses her split from G-Eazy, and wrote “Here are my insides. Handle them with care."

This is Halsey's most recent solo track since her 2017 album hopeless fountain kingdom. The "Without Me" singer has had two top 10 Hot 100 hits and reached No. 1 in 2016 on The Chainsmokers' track "Closer."

Check out the lyrics and video for the powerful breakup anthem "Without Me" below.

Found you when your heart was broke
I filled your cup until it overflowed
Took it so far to keep you close (Keep you close)
I was afraid to leave you on your own

I say I'd catch you if you fall
And if they laugh, then fuck 'em all (All)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet
Just so you can take advantage of me

Tell me how's it feel sittin' up there
Feeling so high but too far away to hold me
You know I'm the one who put you up there
Name in the sky
Does it ever get lonely?
Thinking you could live without me
Thinking you could live without me
Baby, I'm the one who put you up there
I don't know why (Yeah, I don't know why)
Thinking you could live without me
Live without me
Baby, I'm the one who put you up there
I don't know why (I don't know why, yeah yeah)

Gave love 'bout a hundred tries (Hundred tries)
Just running from the demons in your mind
Then I took yours and made 'em mine (Made 'em mine)
I didn't notice 'cause my love was blind

Said I'd catch you if you fall (Fall)
And if they laugh, then fuck 'em all (All)
And then I got you off your knees
Put you right back on your feet
Just so you can take advantage of me

Tell me how's it feel sittin' up there
Feeling so high but too far away to hold me
You know I'm the one who put you up there
Name in the sky
Does it ever get lonely?
Thinking you could live without me
Thinking you could live without me
Baby, I'm the one who put you up there
I don't know why (Yeah, I don't know why)
Thinking you could live without me
Live without me
Baby, I'm the one who put you up there
I don't know why, yeah

You don't have to say just what you did
I already know (I know)
I had to go and find out from them
So tell me how's it feel (Oh-woah)

Tell me how's it feel sittin' up there
Feeling so high but too far away to hold me
You know I'm the one who put you up there
Name in the sky
Does it ever get lonely?
Thinking you could live without me
Thinking you could live without me
Baby, I'm the one who put you up there
I don't know why (Yeah, I don't know why)
