“I’m Not High, I’m in Love” by Bebe Rexha
On “I’m Not High, I’m in Love”, Bebe Rexha celebrates being imbued with the euphoria of smittenness. As these cases tend to go in song, Bebe does so by noting that some time ago she was depressed and now contrasting that reality with the present, whereas she ‘sees colors dancing all around the room’ and things of the sort.
Furthermore, the narrator puts forth that now truly being in love, she has lost the desire to engage in basic, everyday activities such as sleeping and eating.
Under normal circumstances, making such claims can be taken as a cause for alarm. For instance, it’s totally not normal for a person to be randomly seeing colors. But Rexha clarifies that claim is meant to serve as sort of a metaphor, pointing to how, after having endured a “kaleidoscope of lovers”, she has finally found who in her mind is apparently the one.
So as far as the title goes, the singer is revealing that her experiencing these unusual sensations is not the result of being high on drugs, as one may assume. Rather she has fallen completely head over heels, even going as far designating the addressee, the apple of her eye, as being ‘her drug’.
