Shawn Mendes Under Pressure

Mmm ba-de

Dum bum ba-de

Bu-bum ma-da-de

Pressure

Pushing down on me

Pressing down on you

No man ask for

Under pressure

That brings a building down

Splits a family in two

Puts people on streets

Um-ba-ba-be

Um-ba-ba-be

De-day-da

Ee-day-da

That’s okay

It’s the terror of knowing

What this world is about

Watching some good friends

Screaming, “Let me out!”

Pray tomorrow

Gets me higher

Pressure on people

People on streets

Day-day-dum

Mmm-hmm

Nah-now, yeah

Okay

Chippin’ around

Kick my brains round the floor

These are the days

It never rains but it pours

Ee-do-ba-be

Ee-do-ba-ba-ba

Um-bo-bo

Oh-oh

Ee-da-de-da-de

Ee-da, de-da, de-da, de-da

It’s the terror of knowing

What this world is about

Watching some good friends

Screaming, “Let me out!”

Pray tomorrow

Gets me high, high, high

Turned away from it all like a blind man

Sat on a fence but it don’t work

Keep coming up with love but it’s so slashed and torn

Why?

Why?

Why?

Insanity laughs under pressure we’re breaking

Can’t we give ourselves one more chance?

Why can’t we give love that one more chance?

Why can’t we give love, give love, give love, give love

Give love, give love, give love, give love?

‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word

And love dares us to care for

The people on the edge of the night

And love dares you to change our way of

Caring about ourselves

This is our last dance

This is our last dance

This is ourselves

Under pressure

Under pressure, yeah

Under pressure, oh

Pressure

Shawn Mendes There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back

I wanna follow where she goes

I think about her and she knows it

I wanna let her take control

‘Cause every time that she gets close, yeah

She pulls me in enough to keep me guessing, mmm

And maybe I should stop and start confessing

Confessing, yeah

Oh, I’ve been shaking

I love it when you go crazy

You take all my inhibitions

Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back

You take me places that tear up my reputation

Manipulate my decisions

Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back

There’s nothing holdin’ me back

There’s nothing holdin’ me back

She says that she’s never afraid

Just picture everybody naked

She really doesn’t like to wait

Not really into hesitation

Pulls me in enough to keep me guessing, whoa

And maybe I should stop and start confessing

Confessing, yeah

Oh, I’ve been shaking

I love it when you go crazy

You take all my inhibitions

Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back

You take me places that tear up my reputation

Manipulate my decisions

Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back

There’s nothing holdin’ me back

‘Cause if we lost our minds

And we took it way too far

I know we’d be alright,

Know we would be alright

If you were by my side

And we stumbled in the dark

I know we’d be alright,

I know we would be alright

‘Cause if we lost our minds

And we took it way too far

I know we’d be alright,

I know we would be alright

If you were by my side

And we stumbled in the dark

I know we’d be alright,

We would be alright

Oh, I’ve been shaking

I love it when you go crazy

You take all my inhibitions

Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back

You take me places that tear up my reputation

Manipulate my decisions

There’s nothing holdin’ me back

I feel so free

When you’re with me,

Baby

Baby, there’s nothing holdin’ me back

Shawn Mendes Cold In California

Oh

You were crying, when I told you that

I was leaving and might never come back

Hmm, I was dreaming of a warmer place

And if I made it, it’d be okay

The sun is out, the sky is bright

People come and go with smiles

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California

And waves of heat from the concrete

The sand is burning on my feet

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California

Without you I’m freezing cold in California

All those dreams that, one by one came true

Felt like nothing, cause I wasn’t with you

And tell me what that means

And tell me why I’m dying

Thought this was what I needed

But that was a mistake

The sun is out, the sky is bright

People come and go with smiles

Yet, And I’m still freezing cold in California

And waves of heat from the concrete

The sand is burning on my feet

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California

Without you I’m freezing cold in California

You were crying, when I told you that

I was leaving, now I wanna come back

The sun is out, the sky is bright

People come and go with smiles

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California

And waves of heat from the concrete

The sand is burning on my feet

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California

The sun is out, the sky is bright

People come and go with smiles

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California, yeah

And waves of heat from the concrete

The sand is burning on my feet

Yet, I’m still freezing cold in California

Without you I’m freezing cold in California

Shawn Mendes Use Somebody

I’ve been roaming around, always looking down at all I see

Painted faces fill the places I can’t reach

Someone like you and all you know and how you speak

Countless lovers undercover on the street

You know that I could use somebody

Yeah you know that I could use somebody

Someone like you

Someone like you

Off in the night, while you live it up, I’m off to sleep, no

Shawn Mendes In My Blood

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in

Sometimes I feel like giving up

But I just can’t

It isn’t in my blood

Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing

I’m overwhelmed and insecure, give me something

I could take to ease my mind slowly

Just have a drink and you’ll feel better

Just take her home and you’ll feel better

Keep telling me that it gets better

Does it ever?

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in

Sometimes I feel like giving up

No medicine is strong enough

Someone help me

I’m crawling in my skin

Sometimes I feel like giving up

But I just can’t

It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood

I’m looking through my phone again feeling anxious

Afraid to be alone again, I hate this

I’m trying to find a way to chill, can’t breathe, oh

Is there somebody who could…

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in

Sometimes I feel like giving up

No medicine is strong enough

Someone help me

I’m crawling in my skin

Sometimes I feel like giving up

But I just can’t

It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood

I need somebody now

I need somebody now

Someone to help me out

I need somebody now

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in

Sometimes I feel like giving up

But I just can’t

It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood

I need somebody now

It isn’t in my blood

I need somebody now

It isn’t in my blood

Shawn Mendes Hold On

Stop, take it in and I

Breathe for a minute, I

Think too much when I’m alone

I never win when I

Keep all my thoughts inside

So I pick up the phone

And my dad said “Shawn, stay with me

Everything will be alright

I know I haven’t seen you lately

But you’re always on my mind

I don’t know what

You’re going through

But there’s so much life

Ahead of you

And it won’t slow down

No matter what you do

So you just gotta hold on

All we can do is hold on, yeah”

These days are flying by

Weeks feel like minutes, I

Can’t remember being small

I try to figure it out

I can’t seem to find out how

I guess I don’t know much at all

And my dad said “Shawn, stay with me

Everything will be alright

I know I haven’t seen you lately

But you’re always on my mind

I don’t know what

You’re going through

But there’s so much life

Ahead of you

And it won’t slow down

No matter what you do

So you just gotta hold on

All we can do is hold on, yeah

All we can do is hold on

Yeah, you just gotta hold on

Just, just hold on

Just hold on for me”

And my dad said “Shawn, stay with me

Everything will be alright

I don’t know what

You’re going through

But there’s so much life

Ahead of you

And it won’t slow down

No matter what you do

So you just gotta hold on

All we can do is hold on, yeah

Yeah, you just gotta hold on

Just hold on for me”

Shawn Mendes Moving Too Fast

Did I just hear an alarm start ringing?

Did I see sirens go flying past?

Though I don’t know what tomorrow’s bringing

I’ve got a singular impression

Things are moving too fast

I’m gliding smooth as a figure skater

I’m riding hot as a rocket blast

I just expected it ten years later

I’ve got a singular impression

Things are moving too fast

And you say oh no

Step on the brakes

Do whatever it takes

But stop this train

Slow, slow the lights turning red

But I say no no

Whatever I do

I barrel on though

And I don’t complain

No matter what I try

I’m flying full speed ahead

I’m never worried to walk the wire

I won’t do anything just half assed

But with the states getting somewhat higher

I’ve got a singular impression

Things are moving too fast

I found a woman I love

And I found an agent who loves me

Things might get brumby but some people analyze every detail

Some people stall when they can’t see the trail

Some people freeze out of fear that they’ll fail

But I keep rollin’ on

Some people can’t get success with their art

Some people never feel love in their heart

Some people can’t tell the two things apart

But I keep rollin’ on

And oh, maybe I can’t follow through

But oh, what else am I supposed to do?

I dreamed of writing like the high and mighty

Now I’m the subject of a bidding war

I met my personal Aphrodite

I’m doing things I never dreamed of before

We start to take the next step together

Found an apartment on seventy-third

The Atlantic Mounthly’s printing my first chapter

Two thousand bucks without rewriting one word

I left Columbia and I don’t regret it

I wrote a book and Sonny Mehta read it

My heart’s been stolen

My ego’s rolling

I just keep rollin’ along…

And I think

Well, well, what else is in store?

Got all this and more before twenty-four

It’s hard not to be sure

I’m spinning out of control

Out of control

I’m feeling panicked and rushed and hurried

I’m feeling outmaneuvered and outclassed

But I’m so happy I can’t get worried

About this singular impression

I’ve got a singular impression things are moving too fast

Shawn Mendes Particular Taste
