Pillowtalk - Zayn



The Experience: Bodies together... Zayn offers a song about violent sex with no hint of love...


Music video: Pillowtalk showcases graphic violent sex without love. Two girls alternate between fighting - literally - over the same man, and having their own sex life girl. Mixed in with that are the protagonists faces crying black or bloody tears, and lots of pot.

The Meaning of Pillowtalk: When you hear pillowtalk, you think intimate. But Zayn Malik presents sex without intimacy, sex without love. According to him, that's all you need - be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day, f-cking in, fighting on. Problem is pure, dirty and raw don't mix. True love is pure, and sometimes painful - raw. But sex without love is no more than a drug, raw because it hurts you both, dirty because it damages your capacity for harmony and true love. But never pure or uplifting. Those damaged relationships - f-cking in, fighting on - are what come to the fore in the lyrics and music video. Pillowtalk's problem is that it doesn't recognize them for what they are, and glorifies them instead.

Ask yourself: Wishing there were more to love than sex and violence?

LYRICS:

Climb on board
We'll go slow and high tempo
Light and dark
Hold me hard and mellow

I'm seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, 'body but me, 'body but us
Bodies together
I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you
I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you

So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
F-cking in, fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

Pillow talk
My enemy, my ally
Prisoners
Then we're free, it's a thriller

I'm seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, 'body but me, 'body but us
Bodies together
I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you

So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
F-cking in, fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone

So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
F-cking in, fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
