Could you check my pulse for me,
To see if I'm alive?
Cause every time that I am near you
Is the only time I feel alright
If there were any way
I could think to turn back time
I'd stay here with you
Sometimes I sit and wonder
Sometimes I feel like letting go
All I know is no one should have to be alone

I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
But you'll have to die alone
I could fall apart in front of you here and now
I don't want to die alone

I want to be with you, you, you
I only want to be with you, you, you
Uh, uh, uh,
Tell me what's the point of life
Is it material?
Had everything I could ever want and probably more
When I lay in bed at night
All I do is think of you
So when all this is gone what do I have to come home to?
This life goes by so fast
Pretty soon I'll grow old
What would I have but some stories now that I have told
No one to share them with
And when it's all done
What am I left with?
Tell me what's left

I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
But you'll have to die alone
I could fall apart in front of you here and now
I don't want to die alone

MGK!

[MGK:]
Leave me?
How the fuck you gonna leave me?
When I'm the one that's on TV
With these girls screaming
Outside with my CD
And I'm begging?
Naw baby, you're the one that can't keep me
Leave me?
Girl how the fuck you gonna leave me?
You know I love you, when we fight and we argue
I kiss and I hug you
You push me back, you say that I'm trouble
But every Bonnie got a Clyde with her
Every woman needs somebody that's gonna ride with her
And I can't go on staying alive if I'm alone
Pick up the phone and say hello
I'd rather die with her
Now my night's so cold
When your heart is frozen
Mine's exposed you know this
Try to blame the fame for the way I've changed
And you know those claims are bogus
Baby it's not me, it's us
Maybe now all we need is trust
Maybe this Hennessy will solve our problems
Baby pick it up

I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
But you'll have to die alone
I could fall apart in front of you here and now
But I don't want to die alone

But you'll have to die alone
I don't want to be alone
I don't want to die alone
But you'll have to die alone
I could fall apart in front of you here and now
But I don't want to die alone

Could you check my pulse for me,
To see if I'm alive?

    Song MeaningIn the first verse, he is saying how he only feels okay around this particular person he is singing about. He is singing about their failed relationship and if he could turn back time, he would so he could stay with her forever when they were together and happy. But now he is alone and questioning the point of life.
    The chorus is pretty self explanatory, but basically he is so broken (I could fall apart here and now) from this failed relationship and fears having to spend his life alone until death. He knows no one should have to be alone. He wants to be with the girl he loves.
    Second verse he is questioning the point of life. He's had all of the materialistic things that he could ever need or want but he still wants the girl he loves so he doesn't understand what the point of life even is anymore. All he thinks of is this girl like at night when he's in bed and he doesn't want to just come home to nothing everyday with no one to spend his life with. Life is going by fast and he is saying that he won't have anyone when he is old to share all of his memories with. He'll be left with nothing.
    In MGK's rap, he is saying that he is famous and all of the girls desire him yet this girl doesn't love him anymore. He doesn't understand and he's saying it should be the other way around where she is begging for him instead of him begging for her. She thinks he is trouble and he is saying even if he may be a bit troublesome, she needs him. He'd rather die with her than live alone forever. He's saying she's been so cold to him and thinks his fame is changing him but he disagrees and thinks that all they need is some trust and maybe some alcohol.
    Basically this guy is in love with a girl who no longer loves him and thinks he's trouble from his fame and so he doesn't want to end up living life alone.
    Good song.
