Release Date: 18.12.19

Label: Interscope Records


 

Nach seinem erfolgreichen Song „I think I’m okay“, der dieses Jahr bereits als Kollaboration mit Yungblud und Travis Baker erschien, versprach Machine Gun Kelly noch dieses Jahr einen weiteren neuen Song zu veröffentlichen.

Machine Gun Kelly hat auf Twitter schon Stunden vor Release seine Fans mit Text Schnipseln geteasert und sich dann am 18.12.19 an sein Versprechen gehalten.

Mit „Why are you here“ zeigt er sich mehr von seiner Rock-Pop-Punk Seite, als zuvor auf den sehr Hip-Hop und Rap belasteten Alben. Dadurch bestätigt er auch seine Twitter-ankündigung im nächsten Jahr ein Pop-Punk Album zu veröffentlichen, das scheinbar erst ein Rock Album werden sollte. Damit beweist er auch das man ihn nicht in nur ein Genre stecken kann.

 

Über seinen eigenen Song sagt Machine Gun Kelly:

„It was probably this song, to be honest, that was the transfer to me as far as being like, ‘I want my next project to be all singing, all live instruments.’ This was right before I got in the studio with Travis Barker.

I walked into a party one time with this girl that I guess I was kinda creepin’ with while I was talking to this other girl, and I walked in and the other girl that I was lying to was in the party and she was lying to me. So I was there with somebody and she was there with somebody. And I didn’t really know I would be affected by it until I saw it with my own eyes.“

Songtext zu “Why are you here”

We can never be friends
I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m not myself
I’m not myself when you’re around, no
Can’t be helped
We are insane, that’s just the way it goes
I’m a demon in the night, she’s an angel with the white
Told me, “Keep on all the lights, I’ma show you what you like”
Help you put back on your clothes, make sure nothing’s on your nose
Ain’t even tell my closest homies, nobody knows
I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
I’m gonna cry (Gonna cry)
I need to smoke, I’m feelin’ sick inside (Sick inside)
From seein’ you next to a friend of mine
We didn’t speak, but I read your mind
Both tellin’ lies, our alibis didn’t work this time (Didn’t work this time)
I’m a demon in the night, she’s an angel with the white
Told her, “Keep on all the lights, you can show me what you like”
Help me put back on my clothes, make sure nothing’s on my nose
Can’t even tell my closest homies, nobody knows
I hate that I saw you again last night
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
We can never be friends, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, I know that I said I was at home
Okay, yeah, you caught me (Caught me)
I thought that you said you were all alone
Look at you lying
I hate that I saw you again last night (I hate that I saw you again)
You were with somebody and so was I
Met you in the bathroom at 12:05
And I fucked you again (And I), we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah)
We can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah)
We can never be friends, we can never be friends, yeah, yeah, yeah
