Lyrics provided by Genius
You deceived everyone, I understood you
Now you’re choking on your words, well you should spit it out
Know I gave you the world and you just gave me hell
And you gave me hell
In these lines, Huddy describes feeling abused and manipulated, accusing the person he is singing about of stirring public opinion against him.
Felt like a hundred blows
Too many hard to swallow pills
I watched you make it public
Lights, camera, shit
The TikTok star describes the pain he feels, perhaps finding out Charli and his new date (presumably Landon) seeing him publicly, rather than either telling him personally.
You are a showstopper
A bad liar, homie hopper, drama starter
All my friends are f*****, we all got you in common
You’re so fake and everyone should know it
And all the things I hate about you.
All the things I hate about you, yeah
All the things I hate about the way you handle me
Left me with no explanation
Every word is true, all the things I hate about you
(All the things I hate about you).
The phrase “homie hopper” and the phrase “All my friends are f*****, we all got you in common” are the strongest possible reference to Charli, as her new BF Landon had been a close friend of Huddy’s before their relationship began. The boys even starred in Machine Gun Kelly’s high falls together.
Huddy further cements that he felt “left without explanation” and manipulated in the post-chorus.
You could have had a rockstar
But you picked a bumstar
Bootleg version of me, it’s your loss
I had to find out through a photo
Hanging on your arm like a counterfeit.
Seemingly expressing that he feels the person he’s singing about chose poorly, Chase refers to the other person as a bumstar.
You won’t break me down and say it’s all in my head
Holding her hand in that dress the night you left
I’m so sick of the pain, I’ll never see you the same again
I guess that’s the price you pay for the mess you made.
If the song is really about Charli, it seems there will be no reconciliation between her and Huddy. The singer also seems to reference that girl wearing the same dress she wore around him, possibly adding to his pain and reminding him of their time together.
The song definitely sparked a fan war, with TikTokers joining #TeamCharli Where #TeamHuddy and using his song on their own videos. Until then, fans can keep listening to the new song, trying to make sense of the lyrics until Huddy All the things I hate about you the clip arrives on July 29.
