Meaning of So Bad by Cassandra Lewis

“So Bad” by Cassandra Lewis portrays the emotional turmoil of being in a toxic relationship where one person is being mistreated and disrespected by the other.

Verse 1 sets the tone by describing the darkness and manipulation present in the other person’s demeanor. Despite recognizing these negative traits, there is an underlying sense of still caring for them despite the pain they cause. The line “But I loved your shadow then, And I love your shadow now” suggests a love that persists even in the face of harmful behavior.

The Chorus repeatedly questioning “Why you gotta treat me so bad?” conveys the hurt and confusion experienced by the singer due to the mistreatment they are enduring in the relationship.

In the Verse 2, the lyrics highlight the dysfunction and immaturity of the other person’s behavior, comparing it to that of a child. The desire to be both a lover and a friend reflects the conflicting emotions the singer feels towards the person who is causing them pain.

The Bridge speaks to the sacrifice and vulnerability that the singer has given to the relationship, only to have it disregarded and tainted. However, there is also a sense of empowerment and self-respect emerging as they declare their intent to reclaim their love.

The repetition of the Chorus reinforces the theme of questioning the reasons behind the mistreatment and the agony it causes in the relationship.

Overall, “So Bad” conveys a message of inner conflict, pain, and the struggle for self-worth in the face of mistreatment and emotional abuse within a relationship. It captures the complexities of love, hurt, empowerment, and ultimately reclaiming one’s self-respect and dignity.

Lyrics of So Bad by Cassandra Lewis

Verse 1
There's an evil in your smile
There's a darkness in your eyes
There's a reason why you're all alone with only your disguise
But I loved your shadow then
And I love your shadow now
But I can't pretend it doesn't hurt me when you lay another down

Chorus
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?

Verse 2
Something's f****d up in your mind
I've seen the other side
You ain't broken but the games you play make you look like a child
And I wanna be your lover
And I wanna be your friend
But I swear to God if you don't wake up to love, this is the end

Chorus
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?

Bridge
Gave my body and my soul to you
Just for you to paint it black
But I'm finally getting strong enough to take my loving back
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Ooh-ooh-ooh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh, woo

Chorus
Why you gotta treat me so bad, baby?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?

Bridge
Gave my body and my soul to you
Just for you to paint it black
But I'm finally getting strong enough to take my loving back

Chorus
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
Why you gotta treat me so bad?
