Cause I'm way too scared to fall

from Childish Gambino (Ft. Lloyd) – III. Telegraph Ave. ("Oakland" by Lloyd) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Fall”

  1. Gambino is scared of commitment. He feels that once he is in Oakland, he’s worried that he’s going to “fall” in love. He feels as though it might be better to not going through with it at rather than “falling” in love.

  2. Yet, He’s also scared of “falling” (heading) back down to LA. He doesn’t want to lose his girl, but if he returns to LA he’s afraid that’s what’s going to happen.

He’s stuck in a purgatory, he wants to love his girl, but he’s also scared of commitment. He neither wants to “fall” in love or “fall” back down to LA. What’s a Bino to do?
