Stiches - Shawn Mendes



The Experience: The end of a relationship can easily feel like the end of the world …your words cut deeper than a knife… as we seek to stich our lives back together.


Music video: Shawn Mendes is alone in a parking garage trying to get over losing his girlfriend. He has hope that he will get through it, but he is still mysteriously being beaten up by an invisible adversary. This is a powerful artistic reminder of how often are greatest adversary lies within ourselves. He can’t deny the hurt, but he can learn to accept and live with it.


The MeaningI thought that I’d been hurt before… Shawn Mendes sings of the pain of broken love that …cuts deeper than a knife. When we love someone it is natural to feel like losing them will end our world, but Shawn still has hope …gotta get you out of my head… knowing he can make it through despite the scars …I’ll be needing stiches.

Ask yourselfWhat are your stiches made of?

LYRICS:

I thought that I'd been hurt before
But no one's ever left me quite this sore
Your words cut deeper than a knife
Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover
Move on

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
Shaking, falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Tripping over myself,
Aching, begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

Just like a moth drawn to a flame
Oh, you lured me in, I couldn't sense the pain
Your bitter heart cold to the touch
Now I'm gonna reap what I sow
I'm left seeing red on my own

Got a feeling that I'm going under
But I know that I'll make it out alive
If I quit calling you my lover and
Move on

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
Shaking, falling onto my knees
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
Tripping over myself,
Aching, begging you to come help
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

Needle and the thread,
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread,
Gonna wind up dead

Needle and the thread,
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread,
Gonna wind up dead

Needle and the thread,
Gotta get you out of my head
Needle and the thread,
Gonna wind up dead

Needle and the thread,
Gotta get you out of my head, get you out of my head

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe
Shaking, falling onto my knees (falling on my knees)
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches (and I'll be needing stitches)
Tripping over myself,
Aching, begging you to come help (begging, "Baby, please.")
And now that I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches

(And now that)
I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
(And now that)
I'm without your kisses
I'll be needing stitches
