Hippo Campus - Bambi Lyrics




I swear to God I wasn't born to fight
Maybe just a little bit, enough to make me sick of it
But I-I-I-I can read between the lines
I want to run from everything
But my legs won't work, it's clear to me

I-I-I-I haven't been much myself
And I feel like my friends are being put through this hell
Feeling, I think that I'm living, if you could call it living
So brash and unforgiven
Ruled by the vibe I'm bringing
Serving myself
Serving myself

The timing's poor I know it's never right
It's hard to see this time of night
Hard to know the reasons why I fucked it up again
Still I breathe a sigh
It doesn't seem so lucky now
Maybe I can figure out

Why-y-y-y I haven't been much myself
And I feel like my friends are being put through this hell
Feeling, I think that I'm living, if you could call it living
So brash and unforgiven
Ruled by the vibe I'm bringing
Serving myself
Serving myself

Wait and see, I'll be making my own way now
I'll be making my own way now, to where I got to be
Wait and see, I'll be making my own way now
I'll be making my own way now, to where I got to be
(I-I-I-I haven't been much myself)
Wait and see, I'll be making my own way now
(And I feel like my friends are being put through this hell)
I'll be making my own way now to where I got to be
(Feeling, I think that I'm living, if you could call it living)
Wait and see, I'll be making my own way now
(So brash and unforgiven)
I'll be making my own way now to where I got to be
(Ruled by the vibe I'm bringing)
Serving myself
Serving myself

    I want to share a story about this song if I may.

    Once upon a time, I was sat with my ex in her car late at night. It was a late February about 11pm. She put in a CD and said 'I want to listen to this song'. And it was Bambi by Hippo Campus. I really liked the melody of the song - as it reminded me of a late 80s smooth, funky love song - and I didn't really understand the lyrics until I closely listened to it. I asked why she liked the song, and she simply replied: 'Because I can relate to it about being lost.' At that time I was confused by this reaction. But on reflection, I completely get what she meant. She was always lost in terms of where she was going in life, stuck in a long-shift job she didn't like, life was going nowhere fast (she had no real friends) - a relative of hers died before we started dating which still hurt her and she went through a major operation... and also being with a guy she was constantly unsure about (me) didn't help things, she sometimes was more affectionate with her dog more than me. She always conflicted herself and had a lot of doubts about me and the relationship/ occasionally her purpose in life. She was lovely though and we had the best of times. We liked a lot of the same things but we just didn't work as a couple. Something didn't sit right at all and we both felt unsettled. I always felt like we had to do things fast and rush. She was chilled but couldn't love me for me. Needless to say... She dumped me a couple of days after Valentine's. I really did do everything I could for her and she didn't want to know. But basically... Whenever I'm lost, just like she was, I listen to this song. It reminds me of her and happy times - but it does help me emotionally when I question myself. I had another brief relationship after her and several dates since (maybe as reactions to her), but Bambi will always be special to me because of her and our brief yet unstable relationship. And do you know what? Despite everything.... I'm glad she introduced me to this song by Hippo Campus.

    If she sees this comment, this is my way of saying sorry for the pain. I don't expect any contact and hope enough time has passed to heal the wounds of the past. B.

  16. Justin C. G. Garrett

    I don't really listen to the lyrics of songs much, but sometimes a song will stick out to me and when I finally get around to checking the lyrics, they're always something to which I can relate.

    I'm kinda butthurt that the sound production is different (brighter and clearer) than what the album gives.

  57. bryce arell

    hippo campus manages to fool people into thinking that their lyrics are only skin deep (they mention this in the second verse of "baseball") while actually having deeper meanings in many songs that need a deeper look into the lyrics to figure out. 200 IQ move.

  58. Aaron Tamares

    1:06 soapgasm

    2019 anyone?

  69. Lexi Casillas

    Omg this is the best thing I’ve ever found ♡

  70. Audrey W.

    What is the concept of this song?

    Markas Brown

    The song is about feeling trapped by your negative emotions and having no one to express those emotions to and empowering yourself to get through it. This song also implies that these emotions also affect other people hence, "ruled by the vibe I'm bringing."

  71. Sazzandara 1996

    It’s weird to know that this is their most mainstream song. They have so much better songs lol

  72. Bambi's Boolin'

    this songs name has been my name on discord ever since the song was out. Just saw them in concert and this song was amazing.

  73. Brian Roberts

    two door cinema club took all of the red objects in this video and slapped them on their false alarm album cover

    Markas Brown

    Lmao 😂😂😂

  74. L T

    British people have terrible music taste

  75. Emili Medina

    Why are they so cute

  76. Tyrone W.

    Where is that sample of that girl voice from the beginning from? It sounds so familiar

    Spark1357

    Original Memes I don’t think it’s a sample actually. I seem to remember some reddit post saying it was a distorted keyboard.

    It does kind of remind me of the sample from the song “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People.

  77. Alex McGregor

    See you in a month in Iowa!! 🥰🥰

  78. Kipp Jung-Un

    Well shoot, do I have another favorite band? These guys are friggin really good...it’s like when I found Glass Animals...awesome...these guys are great and it’s happy tunes too!! Brilliantly, brilliant. Decently, Decent.

    I don't think that non-depressed people understand how difficult it is for a depressed person to reach out for help. Hell, I don't want to ask for help, I feel ashamed, and disgusted by letting myself get this way and I feel like a burden for even talking to people about it. I always think that people don't really care because everyone has their own issues. To be completely honest, being trapped inside your own head is like being locked in a warehouse with an invisible key. Always asking too many questions inside my mind, questioning even reality itself. I've read about people finding the way out through religion, and honestly I like the idea of bringing people together but not through some god that may or may not exist. Fear of rejection is also a big part of it, because I'd like to not take the chance to get denied by someone and feel even worse. Hoping is even worse because it just leads me to even greater disappointment. Pointless, everything is pointless. I don't know anymore, be seeing you in the next world, if there is any...

    Dissociation Nation

    Fuck your depression. If you find it hard to reach out to people take this email *[email protected]* .. you might find it easier to reach out to me, a random stranger, fellow flawed human and a willing listener. I bet that your venting wont be a fraction of the burden I've been and will probably continue to be. If you decide not to reach out try to remember we all are humans that are born in need of other and theres no shame in that basic need. Not to mention, being human makes us capable of being completely s%[email protected] people and thats a talent we all possess. Society only makes us believe that theres something unnatural about that.

    *keep your head up, theres a strength you can attain to beat depression but you must keep trying*
