Hands to Myself - Selena Gomez



The Experience: We can easily lose control of ourselves if we are only driven by passion and lust... letting your hands wander may bring instant gratification, but is that trip truly fulfilling?



Music Video: The music video presents a Selena Gomez obsessed - she's wearing handcuffs as she daydreams - with her favorite celebrity. Stripped down to her underwear, she breaks into his house and treats herself to a tour, trying to make her steamy fantasies even more real. She only gets herself arrested. That ending is a word of caution: without a true relationship, it's all empty. But that word of caution is muted at best by a video that glorifies her sexual fantasies to the very edge of porn.

Meaning of Hands to Myself: When we fall in love we want to belong to someone and feel special. True love is an invitation to give ourselves to the one we love and it does involve physical contact, that is a natural part of every relationship. And it does mean keeping your hands to yourself in order to maintain a pure and sincere relationship. 

Ask yourself: Do I enjoy the physical part of my relationship? Am I able to control myself and save my passion for the one?

LYRICS:

Can't keep my hands to myself
No matter how hard I'm trying to
I want you all to myself
Your metaphorical gin and juice
So come on, give me a taste
Of what it's like to be next to you
Won't let one drop go to waste
Your metaphorical gin and juice

Ohh cause all of the downs and the uppers
Keep making love to each other
And I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying
All of the downs and the uppers
Keep making love to each other
And I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying, but I

Can't keep my hands to myself
My hands to myself
Can't keep my hands to myself
My hands to myself

The doctor say you're no good
But people say what they wanna say
And you should know if I could
I'd breathe you in every single day

Ohh cause all of the downs and the uppers
Keep making love to each other
And I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying
All of the downs and the uppers
Keep making love to each other
And I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying, but I

Can't keep my hands to myself
My hands to myself
Can't keep my hands to myself
My hands to myself

Can't keep my hands to myself
I want it all, know nothing else
Can't keep my hands to myself
Give me your all and nothing else
Oh, I, I want it all
I want it all, I want it all
Can't keep my hands to myself
I mean I could, but why would I want to?

My hands to myself
Can't keep my hands to myself
My hands to myself
Can't keep, keep my hands to myself
I want it all, know nothing else
Can't keep my hands to myself
Give me your all and nothing else

Can't keep my hands to myself
