Monster

Gabbie Hanna

Monster Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Layin’ in the bed that I made all alone
Guess I'm not surprised honestly
Praying in my head that you stayed and I hope
You'll miss me eventually


[Pre-Chorus]
People wanna talk when I'm not around to hear
Really, they don't know what I'm made of
People keep on walking so far away from here
Clearly, I'm the one they're afraid of

[Chorus]
One after another, they've always come and gone
So what if I'm the monster that's been here all along?
They're droppin’ like flies whenever I'm around
So used to goodbyes, there's comfort in the sound
Maybe I'm the monster that's been here all along

[Verse 2]
Bend until you break and you can't take any more
I'm not worth the trouble it seems
I would say you're wrong, but I've been here before
You won't be the last one to leave


[Pre-Chorus]
People wanna talk when I'm not around to hear
Really, they don't know what I'm made of
People keep on walking so far away from here
Clearly, I'm the one they're afraid of

[Chorus]
One after another, they've always come and gone
So what if I'm the monster that's been here all along?
They're droppin’ like flies whenever I'm around
So used to goodbyes, there's comfort in the sound
Maybe I'm the monster that's been here all along

[Bridge]
You're safe here
No need to run and hide
Underneath your cover now

Don't be scared
There's nothing left inside
Since you ate my heart out


[Chorus]
One after another, they've always come and gone
So what if I'm the monster that's been here all along?
They're droppin’ like flies whenever I'm around
So used to goodbyes, there's comfort in the sound
Maybe I'm the monster that's been here all along

About “Monster”

“Monster” is a song by Gabbie Hanna off of her debut album. It was first announced on her Instagram story on the 4th of October. The music video was released on October 26th, and an alternate vertical version was released exclusively on IGTV.

She appeared on Genius' series Verified to explain the meaning behind the song.

In this video, at the second and last lines of the chorus, the audio was taken from two different microphones and the end result was particularly odd. This inspired many memes on the Internet. Read more about this here.

  • What inspired this song?

    Gabbie Hanna:

    “Monster” came at a time when I was feeling like I was losing a lot of people, and it felt like a lot of different people and a lot of different directions. And it felt like I was doing something inherently bad, or I did something wrong. And there comes a point, if you’re having problems with people, where you have to ask yourself, is it me, am I the reason. Because sometimes it’s hard to see things from another person’s perspective, so that’s just that self-analysis.

  • How did the song come about?

    Gabbie Hanna:

    This track actually woke me up in the middle of the night, I was laying in bed, and then I woke up with “Maybe I’m the monster,” then I ran into my bathroom and recorded it. So it wasn’t really an intentional thing, it was just my feelings came into fruition in my dreams. A lot of times when I write music, it comes to me all at once and it’s very easy for me to fill in all the lyrics. With “Monster,” I brought it to a producer, and we had gone through a lot of other tracks that I was working on, and nothing really clicked with these particular producers. And then as a last ditch effort, I was like, “I have this voice note.” And it was just, “One after another, they’ve always come and gone, so maybe I’m the monster that’s been here all along.” That’s all we had, and then he was like, “Send that to me right now.” He threw it in a program, he built a track, and then the rest just fell into place from there.

  • What was it like hearing the final version?

    Gabbie Hanna:

    It’s so interesting actually, when I hear Monster now, because I wrote it so long ago, and then you hear it so many times, you hear so many mixes, you do the music video, you sing it over and over, and you almost forget where it came from. And then when you listen to it back, after people have heard it, and you see their comments and their response, then it hits you all at once of where you were when you wrote it. So the day that it came out, and a couple days after, I was super emotional and feeling that same pain that I felt when I wrote it. But it was really cathartic, and I feel like it helped me heal a lot.
