Bad Decisions: inside the lyrics and their meaning

Bad Decisions is a lighthearted pop song about being in love. Benny Blanco describes his feelings when he’s infatuated with a girl and wants to spend time with her and forget the rest. We typically make bad decisions when love conquers us and we subordinate every thought and action to it.

The verses with BTS and Snoop Dogg perfectly describe the feelings:

You’re so damn beautiful, I swear you make me sick
I want your love, I want name
Inside my heart, there’s nothin’ but a burning flame

If you want my love
Come a little bit closer
Don’t make me wait

Everybody see me lookin’ fly (Oh, yeah)
And I think I know the reason why (Oh, yeah)
‘Cause I got you right here by my side (Oh, yeah)
And I can’t let you just walk away
If I ain’t with ya, I’m not okay

There is impatience, happiness, and desire, and Benny’s mind is completely immersed in love. Therefore, the chorus explains what will happen: he will start to make some bad decisions, for example, procrastinating things he needs to do, wasting entire days to spend more time with his girl.

Let’s make some bad decisions
I want you, ooh, baby, all of the time
So give me all your kisses
I want you Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, baby, every night
And it feels like (Ooh, ah)
I can’t seem to ever get you out of my mind
And it feels like (Ooh, ah)
I want you, ooh, baby, all of the time

We’ve all been there. In the first phase of love, nothing else is going on in our minds. Love is our priority, and we tend to forget all our other responsibilities or duties. Once again, it’s Snoop Dogg making it explicit in his last verse:

Let’s do things you always wanted
Have some fun and live your life
Help me waste a day and find a place
That we can face to face
Let me show you ’round my hood
There’s bad meaning bad like bad meaning good
When it comes to rules, I break ’em

There are no longer valid rules; what matters is only to give space to love. We dedicate every day to it; we impregnate every aspect of daily life with love. “Bad” doesn’t necessarily mean bad. It might be good to make bad decisions.

There isn’t any cryptic meaning in the lyrics of Bad Decisions: the singer is happily in love and wants to enjoy it fully. If that includes doing something stupid, it’s no problem: it’s our way to experience love.
