I Want You To Know - Zedd ft. Selena Gomez



The Experience: Zedd's EDM beat meets Selena's full voice. I Want You To Know pulses with both dance beat and heartbeat of falling in love at first sight. 
Official Video: Still waiting.

The meaning of I Want You To Know sings about a chain reaction, here I go, here I go. Love's ignited, and everything about him makes Selena identify with him: "You and me bleed the same light... You and me run the same course."
I Want You To Know goes on to ask him to "Tell me lies" rather than say he doesn't feel the same for her. 
Half of I Want You To Know speaks of finding true love, and him being her path onwards. The other half speaks of her wanting him whether it's true or not. Does the song want true love - which changes who we both are, adapting to the other to run the same course, or does the song just want to run the same course just one alongside the other, him validating her, and her validating him? Is this true love (serving, adapting) or just "tell me lies" love (make me feel good/popular)?

Ask yourself: Do I accept I'm better under your reflection - and adapt to him, not force him to adapt to me? Is our love a sharing, or a give/take?


LYRICS:
I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course

I’m slippin down a chain reaction
And here I go here I go here I go go
And once again I’m yours in fractions
It takes me down pulls me down pulls me down low

Honey it’s raining tonight
But storms always have an eye have an eye
Tell me you’re covered tonight
Or tell me lies tell me lies lies

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me we’re the same force
I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light

I’m better under your reflection
But did you know did you know did you know know?
That’s anybody else that’s met ya
It’s all the same all the same all the same glow

Honey it’s raining tonight
But storms always have an eye have an eye
Tell me you’re covered tonight
Or tell me lies tell me lies lies

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me we’re the same force
I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course

You and me run the same course

I want you to know that it’s our time
You and me bleed the same light
I want you to know that I’m all yours
You and me run the same course
