[Verse 1]
She told me, “Open your mouth,” she said, “I got a surprise”
And so I opened it wide and then she crawled inside
She’s on the tip of my tongue, she’s on the top of my thighs
And if I searched a thousand miles, I’d be dyin’ to find

[Pre-Chorus]
Between my fingers, she leaves, then she lingers
If she’s gonna go, well, then I’m goin’ with her
I know that I won’t forget

[Chorus]
She was sweet like honey
But all I can taste is the blood in my mouth
And the bitterness in goodbyе
Drippin’ like honey
Down the back of my throat and on thе front of my mind
And well, she’s impatient and I’m complacent
With just a little taste of wastin’ time
Lookin’ for honey
Well, she stings like she means it, she’s mean and she’s mine

[Verse 2]
Out and about without a reason or rhyme
And now she’s dancin’ on a table and she spins on a dime
But she’s hell in a basket, just makin’ a racket
I love every second, it’s fuckin’ fantastic

[Pre-Chorus]
Good things aren’t easy to get
I know that I won’t regret

[Chorus]
She was sweet like honey
And all I can taste is the blood in my mouth
And the bitterness in goodbye
Drippin’ like honey
Down the back of my throat and on the front of my mind
And well, she’s impatient and I’m complacent
With just a little taste of wastin’ time
Lookin’ for honey
Well, she stings like she means it, she’s mean and she’s mine

[Pre-Chorus]
Between my fingers, she leaves, then she lingers
If she’s gonna go, well, then I’m goin’ with her
And I know that I won’t forget

[Chorus]
She was sweet like honey
But all I can taste is the blood in my mouth
And the bitterness in goodbye
Drippin’ like honey
Down the back of my throat and on the front of my mind
And well, she’s impatient and I’m complacent
With just a little taste of wastin’ time
Lookin’ for honey
Well, she stings like she means it, she’s mean and she’s minehoney is the nineth track off Halsey’s fourth album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power
Prior to the release of IICHLIWP, Halsey briefly mentioned after the release of the album tracklist that honey is about “A wild girl” to many curious fans on twitter.In an Instagram live following the release of [If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power], Halsey explained that honey was originally written as a quick demo to show her younger brother, Dante, how she writes music. Producer John Cunningham convinced Halsey to further experiment with the track.Halsey shared in an Instagram livestream:My little brother Dante, he’s 16 and he makes music. He, like, writes and produces. And he was like, ‘I really wanna come to the studio with you,’ ‘cause he had never been to the studio with me. And he was like, ‘Can I see how you make a song?’ So I invited him to the studio — which is in my backyard, it’s not that cool — and I was there with John Cunningham. And he pulled up a really rough beat. ‘John,’ I was like, ‘Can we just write a song really quick so I can show my brother how I write music?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah.’ I was like, ‘It’s fine, it’ll just be to show him.’ So he pulls up a beat and I get in front of the mic and I just kinda start singing, just writing and singing. And I was like, ‘Alright, Dante! That’s how we write music. Let’s go get dinner.’ And we left. And then two days later, I texted John and I was like, ‘Was that song dope?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, I’ve been trying to get you to realize that.’ And I was like, ‘Woah, wait, that song was actually good.’ So it was like an experiment song that I wrote just to show my little brother how I write songs, and it turned out to probably be one of my top favorites on the whole album.Prior to the release of IICHLIWP, during the announcement of the album tracklist, Halsey quickly noted that honey is about“A wild girl”
