King, Emily - BYIMM Lyrics

You carry the load all on your own
Took care of the house when I was on the road
You gave me money to pay on my telephone
You always treated like a queen up on a throne
You helped me out you were nice to my friends
You took my mama out to dinner paid the bill in the end
You were there for me when I needed you
You were there for me when I needed you

By you, I mean me
By you, I mean me
By you, I mean me
I was the who tried my best to keep it strong
By you, I mean me
Wouldn't you agree

You laughed at my jokes when they weren't even funny
You never slept around when I didn't give you honey
You waited all night while I stayed out late
Drinking whiskey with the fellas and you never complained
You made me a key to your house one day
Even wrote me a song from a little café
You were there for me
When I needed you
When I needed you

By you, I mean me
By you, I mean me
By you, I mean me
I was the who tried my best to keep it strong
By you, I mean me
Wouldn't you agree

Remember when you left the flowers by my door
(That was me)
Remember when you wanted more I gave you more
(That was me)
Baby, maybe it's time that you will see
Just why I let you go free

I never wept when I wanted to cry
I didn't wanna say goodbye
Don't you remember
Ooh, don't you remember yeah

  12. Vivian Torres

    This video makes me happy :)
    I love it!

  13. MrSensical

    So just realized after listening to this and "Distance" (a song from one of her previous albums) that these songs are about the same person. In Distance, at some point she sings "makes me wanna clear my head, find a little cafe and write the words to a song," and in this song she sings "you made me a key to your house one day, even wrote me a song in a little cafe," with the neat gimmick of this song being that wherever she says "you" it refers to what she's done, meaning she wrote the song in the cafe.

    So in this song she's talking about her very specific actions in the past song. I just love love LOVE little self-referential things like that, that explain things (like what happened between her and this person between that album and this one) and boy do I love this music already, so finding deeper layers than that it's just hnnngh.

    (also I'm the hundredth comment whooooot)

    I wish half of these commenters would listen to this song and the vocals, they are smooth and remind me of Janelle Monet. I love Kimmy Schmidt as much as any reasonable functioning human, but stop being one track minded guys.

    enlighten me, why is everyone calling it Pinot Noir(I know that's the correct spelling), but the in the tv series it's Peeno Noir?

    Andrew Burger

    +Derek Louster the real life wine is actually spelt Pinot Noir, they misspelt it in the show as a joke.
