Are Halsey's 'You should be sad' lyrics about G-Eazy?
‘You should be sad’ is a country song
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 fin' 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.
