Post Malone: Circles Lyric Breakdown

Rapper post Malone is one of the coolest dudes out there, and perhaps one of his biggest hits ever was released last year. It’s one of the top five songs of that year, and is still currently my favorite post Malone song of all time and a song I listen to constantly, so in honor of the song that’s been recently re-stuck in my mind here’s a lyric breakdown with my thoughts.

“We couldn’t turn around
‘Til we were upside down”

So their relationship couldn’t be solved until it was ended. A super clever lyric, although I’m not a huge fan of the meaning.

“I’ll be the bad guy now
But no, I ain’t too proud”

He’s going to be the reluctant bad guy and break up with her, sometimes things need to get done, and you have to do the dirty work.

“I couldn’t be there
Even when I try”

So the dude was physically and emotionally unavailable, it happens when you’re famous and rich.

“You don’t believe it
We do this every time”

So this is one of those toxic break up/get back together type of deals. I think someone needs to cut your circle like a flat tire, post.

“Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away“

This hook is one of the sweetest sounding things I’ve heard in a hot minute, and it’s lyrically complex too. It tells you the theme of the song, and a bit about himself – how he’s hesitating

“Let go
I got a feeling that it’s time to let go
I say so
I knew that this was doomed from the get go”

Of course it was doomed, post. This is a toxic ass relationship and you need to cut it off.

“You thought that it was special, special
But it was just the sex though, the sex though”

That happens sometimes, you’ve gotta keep in mind there are other girls to fuck, especially as a successful rapper – you’ll be fine.

“And I still hear the echoes (the echoes)”

What do you have a tape recording of the sex?

“Maybe you don’t understand what I’m going through
It’s only me, what you got to lose?”

Her time, she’s not getting it back wasting it in a toxic relationship, post, neither are you so move on

“Make up your mind, tell me, what are you gonna do?”

This is a pretty confident statement, but it’s all for nothing. Dude put his balls on the line and can’t escape this girl like a goddam cocaine hit. We need to get this man into rehab ASAP.
