Past Life - Trevor Daniel, Selena Gomez

The Experience: Where we've been what we know will never go away... WWhen a relationship was honest enough to still be cherished when you both move on...
The Vibe: Sadness. Peace.
The Topic: Break-up.
The Tension: Last night was the last night of my past life (Moving on). VS. What we know will never go away (Grateful).



Music video: The visuals trace the topography of Trevor's and Selena's faces. Faces are a powerful symbol for the whole person - the person you grew to appreciate, not just the body you used. That knowledge and appreciation of the other person is the fruit of any honest relationship, even the unsuccessful ones.

The Meaning of Past Life: It was mistakes not malice: gave me what I wanted when I needed it honestly I mean it. So the end - last night was the last time was the last time - is sad with new awareness of how unhealthy things were: thinking how I used to use you only thing I'm used to. But it's also happy with new freedom: trying to be honest with my happiness. That's why the relationship can stay. Can still be appreciated. Can be accepted as part of who you are and who you've been: where we've been what we've known will never go away.

Ask yourself: Do you know them deeply enough to appreciate them even when it doesn't work out?

Album:  Nicotine (2020)

LYRICS:

I'm trying to be honest with my happiness
Don't know why I'm bad at this, uh
And I don't want to sit all in my sadness
I know it's a habit of mine

Perfect, perfect timing
I start but I don't know how to end
Don't re-, don't re-mind me
I ruined it before it began, ooh

Last night was the last night of my past life
Got me here like you could never figure me out
Last night was the last time, was the last time
I'll never let you figure me out
Sitting here, talking to myself
Thinking how I used to use you
Only thing I'm used to
Last night was the last night of my past life, woah

Gave me what I wanted when I needed it
Honestly, I mean it
And if I could convince myself to feel it
You know I would feel it, I would

Perfect, perfect timing
I start but I don't know how to end
Don't re-, don't re-mind me
I ruined it before it began, ooh

Last night was the last night of my past life
Got me here like you could never figure me out
Last night was the last time, was the last time
I'll never let you figure me out
Sitting here, talking to myself
Thinking how I used to use you
Only thing I'm used to
Last night was the last night of my past life, woah

Ooh-oh-oh, woah, woah, woah
Ooh-oh-oh, woah, woah, woah

Last night was the last night of my past life
Got me here like you could never figure me out
Last night was the last time, was the last time
I'll never let you figure me out
Sitting here, talking to myself
Thinking how I used to use you
Only thing I'm used to
Last night was the last night of my past life, woah

Ooh-oh-oh, woah, woah, woah
Ooh-oh-oh, woah, woah, woah

Where we've been, what we know
Will never go away
Will never go away
