“Allergic” by Post Malone

In “Allergic”, Post Malone is singing about an on-again/off-again romantic relationship that he is in. He and his partner seem to have genuine, albeit fluctuating, feelings for each other. At the beginning of the song, Post uses an analogy where he likens the situation to the progression of a week. And the way this metaphor reads is that the only time they’re really cool with each other is on the weekends.

In terms of his issues with this relationship, the focus is primarily on his partner. He basically finds her personality flaws particularly repellent, especially in light of the fact that he has his own internal matters to deal with. Indeed Malone insinuates that this woman brings out the worst in him.  So he has more or less decided that the relationship has to come to an end.  Or as the title suggests, he has grown to be “allergic” to this lady, as in being unable to comfortably have her around.

    I can almost hear the chord ‘allergic, allergic’ from an old song – the music but I can’t track it down. Great song.
