What Is Tate McRae’s Song ‘Greedy’ About?
On the track, Tate seemingly sings about a potential romantic relationship.

Previously, the songstress teased her new era of music in December 2022.
“I’m in my next cycle of writing and music,” she told KISS108 FM during an interview at the time. “I’m definitely working towards a second [album]. I don’t know exactly when … no songs are chosen. Nothing’s really decided yet.”

What Are the Lyrics to Tate McRae’s Song ‘Greedy’?
In the first verse, Tate seemingly recounts a conversation with a possible suitor.
“He said, ‘Are you serious? I’ve tried, but I can’t figure out/ I’ve been next to you all night and still don’t know what you’re about You keep ta- talkin’, but not much comin’ out your mouth /Can’t you tell that I want you?’ I say, yeah,” the beginning of the song reads, before she launches into the chorus.
As the track continues, she switches to her point of view before continuing the conversation with the suitor in the bridge.
“He said, ‘I’m just curious, is this for real or just an act? / Can’t tell if you love or hate me, never met someone like that. Drive me so (So, so) crazy, did you know you got that effect?'” the lyrics read.
