Who Do You Love - The Chainsmokers ft. 5SOS




The Experience: Who do you love do you love now? I wanna know the truth. Who do you love do you love now? I know it’s someone new... The insecurity of watching your love crumble...

Music video: Still waiting. The lyric video adds visual cues that delve into the feelings behind the question. ****: frustration and desperation. Pink and baby blue skulls: the death of the relationship means that both of them suffer. And the graffiti video ends with the whole song blotted out under white paint. Artistically white is the color of chromatic death: no color. Symbolically, white is purity: the desire to blot the whole relationship, with all of its pain, right out of existence.

The Meaning of Who Do You Love: I wanna know the truth. The only thing worse than feeling your relationship crumble is not knowing... The Chainsmokers and 5 Seconds of Summer are so destroyed by their love's betrayal they don't even try to rekindle her love. They just want her to own it... Underneath that desolation is a deep insecurity: love defines who you are. Betrayal casts you adrift. Especially when they don't have the decency to reject you to your face.

Ask yourself: Do you dedicate the same effort to building your relationships as you do to doubting them?

LYRICS:


Yeah

Found cigarettes in your Fendi coat
Even though you don’t even smoke
Always changing your access codes
Yeah I can tell you no one knew

Yeah you’ve been acting so conspicuous
You flip it on me say I think too much
You’re moving different when we’re making love
Baby tell me tell me

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know the truth
Who do you love do you love now
I know it’s someone new

You ain’t gotta make it easy
Where you been sleeping
This sh-t is keeping me up at night

Just admit it

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know
I wanna know who

You keep switching your alibi
Stuttering when you reply
You can’t even look me in the eye
Ooh I can tell I know you’re lyin’

Cause you’ve been acting so conspicuous
You flip it on me say I think too much
You’re moving different when we’re making love
Baby tell me tell me

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know the truth
Who do you love do you love now
I know it’s someone new

You ain’t gotta make it easy
Where you been sleeping
This sh-t is keeping me up at night

Just admit it

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know
I wanna know who

You’ve been acting so conspicuous
You flip it on me say I think too much
Moving different when we’re making love
Baby tell me tell me

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know the truth
Who do you love do you love now
I know it’s someone new

You ain’t gotta make it easy
Where you been sleeping
This sh-t is keeping me up at night

Just admit it

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know
I wanna know who

You ain’t gotta make it easy
Where you been sleeping
This sh-t is keeping me up at night

Just admit it

Who do you love do you love now
I wanna know
I wanna know who
