Lirik lagu Lauv & LANY – Mean It:

[Verse 1: Lauv]

Small talk, no conversation

That look makes me impatient

I can't tell what you're thinking

Please, tell me what you're thinking

Last night, we were more than fine

Just tell me if you changed your mind

If you changed your mind (Mind)

 

[Pre-Chorus: Lauv]

'Cause I'm all, I'm all in

I'm calling, no answer

Would you text me when you feel like?

When it feels right to you

But I'm all, I'm all in

I'm falling faster

But if you're looking at me with a heart of doubt

 

[Chorus: Lauv]

Don't kiss me right now

Don't tell me that you need me

Don't show up at my house

All caught up in your feelings

Don't run me 'round and 'round

Don't build me up just to let me down

Just to let me down, down, down (Hey)

Don't mess with my head

Don't tell me you're falling

With your feet still on the ledge

I'm all out of breath

Baby, don't run me 'round and 'round

Don't kiss me, no, don't kiss me right now

On your lips, just leave it

If you don't mean it

 

 

[Verse 2: Paul Klein]

Oh, yeah

You know you got me in the palm of your hand

But I love those hands

Oh, yeah

 

But you only let me hold you when he can't

 

Yeah, I don't understand

 

[Pre-Chorus: Paul Klein]

'Cause I'm all, I'm all in

I'm calling, no answer

Would you text me when you feel like?

When it feels right to you

But I'm all, I'm all in

I'm falling faster

But if you're looking at me with a heart of doubt

 

[Chorus: Paul Klein]

Don't kiss me right now

Don't tell me that you need me

Don't show up at my house

All caught up in your feelings

Don't run me 'round and 'round

Don't build me up just to let me down

Just to let me down, down, down (Hey)

Don't mess with my head

Don't tell me you're falling

With your feet still on the ledge

I'm all out of breath

Baby, don't run me 'round and 'round

Don't kiss me, no, don't kiss me right now

On your lips, just leave it

If you don't mean it

 

 

[Bridge: Paul Klein & Lauv]

Hurry home, let's never leave the house (But you don't mean it)

Let's stay in bed while all our friends go out (But you don't mean it)

Why you let those words come out of your mouth? (If you don't mean it)

You've been staring at me with a heart of doubt (Ah)

 

[Chorus: Lauv & Paul Klein]

Don't kiss me right now

Don't tell me that you need me

Don't show up at my house

All caught up in your feelings

Don't run me 'round and 'round

Don't build me up just to let me down

Just to let me down, down, down (Hey)

Don't mess with my head

Don't tell me you're falling

With your feet still on the ledge

I'm all out of breath

Baby, don't run me 'round and 'round

Don't kiss me, no, don't kiss me right now

On your lips, just leave it

If you don't mean it
