The reason why my best friend said she love me more than life
But I live a double life and need to let her go
Though he has someone that loves him, he can’t be with her because the newfound demands of fame and career will tear them apart.
It could also be the other way around and the reason why his girlfriend/bestfriend loves him more than life is because of all the vanity/material possessions he has. Kendrick is aware of this, (lives a double life), and knows that her love isn’t real and needs to let her go.
Kendrick is also suggesting that his best friend, most likely a personification of truth, or being true to his art, loves him — but he is flirting with fame and is going to have to let truth go to become famous.
