Blackbear - the idea

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
How do you fall asleep without me here?
I see right through you, I see you so clear
Wake up my demons and my biggest fears
Are you in love with me or the idea? (Yeah)

[Verse 1]
Too many skeletons in my closet
God, if You're listening, You need to call me
Drunk off a feeling, I don't wanna stop it
What is the meaning?
Swear the drugs don't help me, it's a problem
This ain't love, I don't know what to call it
Run and tell your girlfriends that you hate me
I think we're too far from saving
[Pre-Chorus]
Same old story, Hollywood's on fire
Three nights in a row doin' blow, are you tired?
Tell me

[Chorus]
How do you fall asleep without me here?
I see right through you, I see you so clear
Wake up my demons and my biggest fears
Are you in love with me or the idea?

[Post-Chorus]
Are you in love with me or the idea? (Yeah)

[Verse 2]
Too many bridges I, I done burned up
Why you only hittin' me when you're turnt up?
Hearts made of plastic, it ain't real love
What is the meaning?
Swear that you don't really need me, just the moment
Go 'head, crop me from the photos
Run and tell your girlfriends that you hate me
I know we're too far from saving

[Pre-Chorus]
Are you in love with the heartbreak? It's tough
'Cause when I saw you last week, you were lookin' pretty rough
And it's the same old story, Hollywood's on fire
Three nights in a row doin' blow, are you tired?
Tell me

How do you fall asleep without me here?
I see right through you, I see you so clear
Wake up my demons and my biggest fears
Are you in love with me or the idea?

[Post-Chorus]
Are you in love with me or the idea? (Yeah)

[Bridge]
Look at this mess all around me
You should have left how you found me
Death is easy, life is hard
I hate how this ending is sounding
You left your cigarette burning
On top of the pictures, you hurt me
Death is easy, life is hard
And livin' without you is worse for me, so

[Chorus]
How do you fall asleep without me here?
I see right through you, I see you so clear
Wake up my demons and my biggest fears
Are you in love with me or the idea?

[Post-Chorus]
Are you in love with me or the idea?

The second promotional single of blackbear’s pop-punk endeavor "in loving memory", “the idea” tells the story of bear’s partner being in love with what she wants him to be but not who he really is. Despite knowing this, he’s also addicted to the feeling. While “gfy” may have felt more familiar to fans, “the idea” is a further dive into the sound of the album. On July 6, 2022, blackbear uploaded the official trailer for the vintage-style music video ahead of release. blackbear confirmed during an AMA for the premiere of the “the idea” music video that January 1, 2019 is the day he “got sober from all street drugs.”
