Bad Idea Lyrics

I've been outta sight
I've been worried 'bout you lately
Runnin' outta time
Wishin' you would come and save me
'Cause I don't wanna roll with it (Yeah, yeah)
Tryna get control of it (Yeah, yeah)
Why can't I let go of it? (Yeah, yeah)

    I think the song could be possibly about a ex boyfriend who broke her heart and is looking for something or someone to numb the pain cause she’s losing herself and her mind trying to forget about it, forget about him, forget about herself.

    Bad idea is simply about finding someone else. She’s talking about having a bad idea ( obviously) and it’s like she’s asking someone to help her escape the pain from losing someone.

    I got a bad idea, lets take a little time away represents her possibly looking back at her "bad idea" of splitting with Mac Miller. Maybe she feels like if she stayed with him she could have prevented the overdose. And then finding someone quick to numb the pain would be her quick engagement to Pete.

    i think this song means that a guy broke up with her and she needs someone/something to numb the pain so it doesn't hurt as much. she can't let go of him so she needs it, even though she's trying her best to forget about it, him, and her mind. she knows it's gonna be a bad idea to bring something to numb the pain
