"Me, Myself and I" is the sixth track from Beyoncé's debut studio album, Dangerously in Love.

Background Edit

It was written by Beyoncé, Scott Storch and Robert Waller for her debut solo album Dangerously in Love (2003). Beyoncé decided that she wanted a deeper and more personal song for the third single; the song was sent by Columbia Records to US radio on October 19, 2003. "Me, Myself and I" is an R&B song about dealing with a philandering boyfriend and learning from the consequences.

Reception Edit

"Me, Myself and I" was generally well received by music critics, who complimented the smooth and assertive vocals of Beyoncé and called it a 1980s throwback from Dangerously in Love. The Grammy Award-nominated song earned Beyoncé, Storch and Waller an American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers Pop Music Award. "Me, Myself and I" peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and became Beyoncé's fourth consecutive US top five single. It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The single reached the top 20 in Australia, the UK and in some European countries.

Lyrics Edit

All the ladies if you feel me, help me sing it out...

I can't believe I believed
Everything we had would last
So young and naive for me to think
She was from your past
Silly of me to dream of
One day having your kids
Love is so blind
It feels right when it's wrong

I can't believe I fell for your schemes
I'm smarter than that
So young and naive to believe that with me
You're a changed man
Foolish of me to compete
When you cheat with loose women
It took me some time but now I moved on

Cuz I realized I got
Me myself and I
That's all I got in the end
That's what I found out
And it ain't no need to cry
I took a vow that from now on
I'm gonna be my own best friend

Me myself and I
That's all I got in the end
That's what I found out
And it ain't no need to cry
I took a vow that from now on
I'm gonna be my own best friend

So controlling , you said that you love me
But you don't
Your family told me one day
I would see it on my own
Next thing I know I'm dealing
With your three kids in my home
Love is so blind
It feels right when it's wrong

Now that it's over
Stop calling me
Come pick up your clothes
Ain't no need to front like you're still with me
All your homies know
Even your very best friend
Tried to warn me on the low
It took me some time
But now I am strong

Because I realized I got
Me myself and I
That's all I got in the end
That's what I found out
And it ain't no need to cry
I took a vow that from now on
I'm gonna be my own best friend

Me myself and I
That's all I got in the end
That's what I found out
And it ain't no need to cry
I took a vow that from now on
I'm gonna be my own best friend

Me myself and I
I know that I will never disappoint myself
I must have cried a thousand times
All the ladies if you feel me
Help me sing it now
I can't regret all the times spent with you
Ya, you hurt me
But I learned a lot along the way
After all the rain
You'll see the sun come out again
I know that I will never disappoint myself
