Call You Mine - The Chainsmokers, Bebe Rexha

The Experience: So I call you mine. Daring to claim a person as your own.
The Vibe: Nostalgia. Loss.
The Topic: Love. Doubt. 
The Value: Commitment.
The Tension: I can commit to you forever VS. Can I? Will you stay with me? Will I stay with you?

Music video: The video plays backward. You slowly understand that Bebe Rexha doesn't claim The Chainsmokers as her own because they committed to her. Instead, she stalked them, drugged them, and took them. She's in control... until the police take them back. The music video throws weight behind the doubt already lurking in the lyrics.

The Meaning of Call You Mine: Hey watcha doing for the rest of your life?... We have the freedom to choose. That means we can commit forever. It also means we can break that vow - like nothin' but strangers now. Love is a risk. He can fail. You can fail. So is the leap of faith worth taking? Or do we need someone to save us from our dreams of forever - who's gonna save us now?

Ask yourself: Are you brave enough to love? Are you confident and trusting enough to let yourself love and be loved?

LYRICS:


Two kids with their hearts on fire
Who's gonna save us now?
When we thought that we couldn't get higher
Things started looking down

I look at you and you look at me
Like nothin' but strangers now
Two kids with their hearts on fire
Don't let it burn us out

Think about what you believe in now
Am I someone you cannot live without?
'Cause I know I don't wanna live without you
Yeah
Come on let's turn this all around
Bring it all back to that bar downtown
When you wouldn't let me walk out on you
Yeah

You said, "Hey whatcha doing for the rest of your life?"
And I said
"I don't even know what I'm doing tonight"
Went from one conversation, to your lips on mine
And you said, "I never regretted the day that I called you mine"
So I call you mine
Can I call you mine?
And you said, "I never regretted the day that I called you mine"

Broke kids running through the city
Drunk on the subway train
Set free every time you kissed me
We couldn't feel no pain

You looked at me and I looked at you
Like we'd never look away
Broke kids running through the city
Don't let the memory fade

You said, "Hey whatcha doing for the rest of your life?"
And I said
"I don't even know what I'm doing tonight"
Went from one conversation to your lips on mine
And you said, "I never regretted the day that I called you mine"
So I call you mine
Can I call you mine?
And you said, "I never regretted the day that I called you mine"

Think about what you believe in now
Am I someone you cannot live without?
'Cause I know I don't wanna live without you
Yeah
Come on let's turn this all around
Bring it all back to that bar downtown
When you wouldn't let me walk out on you, yeah

You said, "Hey whatcha doing for the rest of your life?"
And I said
"I don't even know what I'm doing tonight"
Went from one conversation to your lips on mine
And you said, "I never regretted the day that I called you mine"
So I call you mine
And you said, "I never regretted the day that I called you mine"
Can I call you mine?
Can I call you mine?
Can I call you mine?
Can I call you mine?
