If I Can't Have You - Shawn Mendes




The Experience: Is it wrong for me to not want half, I want all of you, all the strings attached... Love with no regrets and no what ifs...  

Music video: Shawn Mendes in bleak world where every sight that isn't her is faded and gray...

The Meaning of If I Can't Have You: In a world where freedom is king, love suffers. We want it with no strings attached. We want to pick and choose the parts of them we'll love. If I Can't Have You turns all that on its head, and goes back to authentic love. Straight up. No chaser. Is it wrong for me to not want half, I want all of you, all the strings attached? Our world might say yes, but Shawn Mendes says no. He's all in.

Ask yourself: Are you capable of loving 100%?

Album: - 2019

LYRICS:


I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

I'm in Toronto and I got this view
But I might as well be in a hotel room (Yeah)
It doesn't matter 'cause I'm so consumed
Spending all my nights reading texts from you

Oh, I'm good at keeping my distance
I know, that you're the feeling I'm missing
You know that I hate to admit it
But everything means nothing if I can't have you

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

I'm so sorry that my timing's off
But I can't move on if we're still gonna talk
Is it wrong for me to not want half
I want all of you, all the strings attached

Oh, I'm good at keeping my distance
I know, that you're the feeling I'm missing
You know that I hate to admit it
But everything means nothing if I can't have you

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

I'm trying, to move on, forget you, but I hold on
Everything means nothing, everything means nothing, babe
I'm trying, to move on, forget you, but I hold on
Everything means nothing if I can't have you

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?

I can't write one song that's not about you
Can't drink without thinking about you
Is it too late to tell you that
Everything means nothing if I can't have you?
