Lyrics for Me, Myself & I by G-Eazy:

Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
‘Cause I got me for life (Yeah)
Oh, I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

Verse 1: G-Eazy
Hun, and as far as I can see, I just need privacy
Plus a whole lot of tree, fuck all this modesty
I just need space to do me
Give the world what they're tryna see
A Stella Maxwell right beside of me
A Ferrari, I'm buyin' three
A closet of Saint Laurent, get what I want when I want
‘Cause this hunger is drivin' me, yeah
I just need to be alone, I just need to be at home
Understand what I'm speakin' on
If time is money I need a loan
But regardless I'll always keep keepin' on
Fuck fake friends!
We don't take L's, we just make M's
While y'all follow, we just make trends
I'm right back to work when that break ends, yeah

Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
‘Cause I got me for life
(Got me for life, yeah)
Oh I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

Post-Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
I don't need anything (Yeah) to get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
Yeah, it's keepin' me alive (Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything to make me satisfied (You know)
‘Cause the music does me good
And it gets me every time

Verse 2: G-Eazy
Yeah, and I don't like talkin' to strangers
So get the fuck off me, I'm anxious
I'm tryna be cool, but I may just go apeshit
Say "Fuck y'all!" to all of y'all faces
It changes though now that I'm famous
Everyone knows how this lifestyle is dangerous
But I love it, the rush is amazin'
Celebrate nightly and everyone rages
I found how to cope with my angers
I'm swimmin' in money
Swimmin' in liquor, my liver is muddy
But it's all good, I'm still sippin' this bubbly
This shit is lovely, this shit ain't random, I didn't get lucky
Made it right here ‘cause I'm sick with it, cuddy
They all take the money for granted
But don't want to work for it—tell me now, isn't it funny? (Nah)

Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
‘Cause I got me for life
(Got me for life, yeah)
Oh, I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

Post-Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
I don't need anything (Yeah) to get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
Yeah, it's keepin' me alive (Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything to make me satisfied (You know)
‘Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time

Bridge: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
Like, ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba (Yeah)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
‘Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time

Verse 3: G-Eazy
Yeah, lonely nights I laid awake
Pray to Lord my soul to take
My heart's become too cold to break
Know I'm great, but I'm broke as hell
Havin' dreams that I'm foldin' cake
All my life I've been told to wait
But I'ma get it now, yeah, it's no debate
Yeah

Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
Oh, it's just me, myself and I
Solo ride until I die
‘Cause I got me for life
(Got me for life, yeah)
Oh, I don't need a hand to hold
Even when the night is cold
I got that fire in my soul

Post-Chorus: Bebe Rexha & (G-Eazy)
I don't need anything (Yeah) to get me through the night
Except the beat that's in my heart
And it's keepin' me alive (Keeps me alive)
I don't need anything to make me satisfied (You know)
‘Cause the music does me good
And it gets me every time

Bridge: Bebe Rexha
Like, ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba-da-ba
Ba-ba-ba-da-ba
‘Cause the music fills me good
And it gets me every time

Song Facts

“Me, Myself & I” is centered around G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha’s wish for privacy and ability to escape in the solidarity of the music they create. It was originally titled “I Don’t Need Anything,” but after Gerald heard the demo, the original verse lyrics were scrapped and this pop-rap collaboration was born.

The oldest mention of the phrase “Me, Myself & I,” comes from Billie Holiday’s 1937 song of the same name. This phrase has since taken on the meaning of “only me, me alone, me without companionship.”

Despite the title’s roots, this song wasn’t mentioned until October 14, 2015, when it was released as the second single, following “You Got Me,” from G-Eazy’s RCA sophomore studio album When It’s Dark Out. This song topped the Hot Rap Songs chart and peaked at 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, becoming his first top ten hit.

Needing to take some time alone is a big motif of When It’s Dark Out that continuously shows up on the latter half of the album. The music video draws comparisons to “Sad Boy” in it’s introspected conversational tone. Without the proper time, he is unable to get the problems off of his chest that persist in songs like “Think About You” and “Everything Will Be OK.”
