Ariana Grande Wiki
It's very unique, it's very different, I called Max [Landis] up and I said 'hey I want to do something that ends exactly like this' and I described the ending shot to him and then I said I also want it to be (a) one take [music video]… and I want the ending shot to look like this, And I described those two things to him and he’s like, 'wow, that's ambitious and it’s brave and it’s different, but let's try it.

Plot[]

The music video is about a fictional apocalypse where the Earth crashes through Comet Eurydice's tail which leads to utter chaos. The introduction features multiple news reports describing the chaos. Then, the video begins, showing Grande and her boyfriend in the car as people around them freak out. Grande gets out of the car despite his objects, and he follows her to keep her safe.

She then punches through the police and a crowd of people, and the camera goes into an ambulance where a man is dying of burns, then it passes by a house where three people are fighting over a gun. Grande enters a building and passes a family sitting on the sofa praying, then she enters a room that has caught fire from the heat of the comet. After this, she enters a room with many televisions playing different news channels and fights with a bearded man.

Meanwhile, a countdown to the west coast is destroyed starts. After walking down a long, burning hallway with firefighters evacuating people, Grande climbs up a flight of stairs and walks onto the rooftop. The video ends with her embracing her fictional boyfriend, played by Matt Bennett, as pieces of the comet fall from the sky and destroy the coast.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
I was a liar
I gave into the fire
I know I should’ve fought it
At least I’m being honest

Feel like a failure
'Cause I know that I failed you
I should’ve done you better
'Cause you don’t want a liar

[Pre-Chorus]
And I know, and I know, and I know
She gives you everything
But boy, I couldn’t give it to you
And I know, and I know, and I know that
You got everything
But I got nothing here without you

[Chorus]
So one last time
I need to be the one
Who takes you home
One more time
I promise after that
I’ll let you go
Baby, I don’t care if you got
Her in your heart
All I really care is you
Wake up in my arms
One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home

[Verse 2]
I don’t deserve it
I know I don’t deserve it
But stay with me a minute
I swear I’ll make it worth it

Can’t you forgive me?
At least just temporarily
I know that this is my fault
I should have been more careful

[Pre-Chorus]
And I know, and I know, and I know
She gives you everything
But boy, I couldn’t give it to you
And I know, and I know, and I know that
You got everything
But I got nothing here without you, baby

[Chorus]
So one last time
I need to be the one
Who takes you home
One more time
I promise after that
I’ll let you go
Baby, I don’t care if you got
Her in your heart
All I really care is you
Wake up in my arms
One last time
I need to be the one who takes you home

[Bridge]
(Ohh, ohh eehhhh)

I know I should've fought it
At least I'm being honest, ohh eeehhh
Just stay with me a minute
I swear I’ll make it worth it, babe

'Cause I don’t want to be without you

Ohhh, ohhh

[Chorus]
So one last time
(One last time!)
I need to be the one
Who takes you home
(Who takes you home, babe!)
One more time
I promise after that
I’ll let you go
(I'll let you go)
Baby, I don’t care if you got
(Baby, I don't care if you got)
Her in your heart
(Her in your heart, babe)
All I really care is you
Wake up in my arms
(Wake up in my arms!)
One last time
I need to be the one
(I need to be, eeh eeh)
Who takes you home
(Who takes you home)

[Outro]
One last time
I need to be the one
Who takes you home
