We Don't Talk Anymore - Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez



The Experience: Should've known your love was a game. Now I can't get you out of my brain. Ohh, it's such a shame that we don't talk anymore... The relationship is over and done with. Both of you are hurt. Both of you feel betrayed. And both of you wonder if you just missed your first and only chance at real love...


Music video: The music video turns the lyrics on their head. Both of them are alone - they're both sure that the other one has moved on, but neither of them has. They spend their day faithful to one another. They never go home with anyone else. They're phones are pure collections of their past together - pics, videos, memories. But they can't bring themselves to admit to each other that they haven't moved on. The lyrics are about a break up and mutual betrayal. In the video, that betrayal is only in their heads, and the real problem is trust.

The Meaning of We Don't Talk Anymore: The song starts off sounding like just another complaint that she betrayed me. But that impression changes when in Selena chimes in complaining that he betrayed her. It was a game for both of them. In the end they both got played. They both betrayed. But neither of them can forget it and move on. Because that could have been the real thing, if only they had seen it. If every love is just a game you run the risk of never recognizing the real thing until it's too late. 

Ask yourself: Are your relationships games that you play with people's lives and hearts?

LYRICS:

We don't talk anymore!
We don't talk anymore!
We don't talk anymore!
Like we used to do...

We don't love anymore
What was all of it for?
Ohh, we don't talk anymore

(Like we used to do...)


I just heard you found the one you've been looking
You've been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn't me
'Cause even after all this time I still wonder
Why I can't move on
Just the way you did so easily

Don't wanna know
What kind of dress you're wearing tonight
If he's holding onto you so tight
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain

(Ohh, it's such a shame...)

That we don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
What was all of it for?
Ohh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

I just hope you're lying next to somebody
Who knows how to love you like me
There must be a good reason that you're gone
Every now and then I think you
Might want me to come show up at your door
But I'm just too afraid that I'll be wrong

Don't wanna know
If you're looking into her eyes
If she's holding onto you so tight the way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
(We don't we don't)
What was all of it for?
(We don't we don't)
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

(Beat break)

Like we used to do

Don't wanna know
What kind of dress you're wearing tonight
If he's giving it to you just right
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
(We don't we don't)
What was all of it for?
(We don't we don't)
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

(We don't talk anymore)
Don't wanna know
What kind of dress you're wearing tonight (Oh)
If he's holding onto you so tight (Oh)
The way I did before
(We don't talk anymore)
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game (Oh)
Now I can't get you out of my brain (Woah)
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore...
