Halsey – You should be sad

“You Should Be Sad” (stylized in sentence case) is a song by American singer Halsey. It was released on January 10, 2020 through Capitol Records as the sixth single from her third studio album, Manic (2020).

Halsey revealed that she wrote the song in her living room floor, as well in Nashville, and stated that “the most petty and heartbreaking songs all come from country”. When talking about the inspiration for the outfits, Halsey confirmed a number of artists, writing, “Xtina, Gaga, Carrie, and of course Shania, this was one loaded with nods to badass idols of mine. Had the vision to do a ‘Before He Cheats’ but instead about after he does haha”.

LYRIC

I wanna start this out and say
I gotta get it off my chest
Got no anger, got no malice
Just a little bit of regret
Know nobody else will tell you
So there’s some things I gotta say
Gonna jot it down and then get it out
And then I’ll be on my way
No, you’re not half the man you think that you are
And you can’t fill the hole inside of you with money, drugs and cars
I’m so glad I never ever had a baby with you
‘Cause you can’t love nothin’ unless there’s somethin’ in it for you
Oh, I feel so sorry
I feel so sad
I tried to help you
It just made you mad
And I had no warnin’
About who you are
I’m just glad I made it out without breakin’ down
And then ran so fuckin’ far
That you would never ever touch me again
Won’t see your alligator tears
‘Cause, no, I’ve had enough of them
Let me start this off by sayin’
I really meant well from the start
Take a broken man right in my hands
And then put back all his parts
But you’re not half the man you think that you are
And you can’t fill the hole inside of you with money, girls and cars
I’m so glad I never ever had a baby with you
‘Cause you can’t love nothin’ unless there’s somethin’ in it for you
Oh, I feel so sorry (I feel so sorry)
I feel so sad (I feel so sad)
I tried to help you (I tried to help you)
It just made you mad
And I had no warnin’ (I had no warnin’)
About who you are (’bout who you)
Just glad I made it out without breakin’ down
Oh, I feel so sorry (I feel so sorry)
I feel so sad (I feel so sad)
I tried to help you (I tried to help you)
It just made you mad
And I had no warnin’ (I had no)
About who you are (’bout who you)
‘Bout who you are
Hey
Hey
Hey
Hey
‘Cause you’re not half the man you think that you are
And you can’t fill the hole inside of you with money, drugs and cars
I’m so glad I never ever had a baby with you
‘Cause you can’t love nothin’ unless there’s somethin’ in it for you
I feel so sad
You should be sad
You should be
You should be sad
You should be
You should be
You should be
