Story of Song The stories behind the hits Novellic

Remnants from dreams! Gambino talked about writing this song in the morning and what “3005” is actually about. “All the good songs where I’m like, ‘How did I even come up with that?’ were probably remnants from dreams. I feel like when you first wake up, you’re still close to who you really are.” Gambino told the story of th song in an interview with Fuse TV: “Everybody’s like, ‘It’s a love song’. It’s kind of an existential thing. I’m just really scared of being alone. When I was little, there was a big dog down the street. I was really scared of it. But when I was with my sister, when I knew I had to protect her, I wasn’t afraid of the dog as much because somebody was there. I had a purpose… I kind of feel lost. I kind of lost that, I feel.”
