Call Me Maybe

Lyrics

playI threw a wish in the well
playDon't ask me, I'll never tell
playI looked to you as it fell
playAnd now you're in my way

playI'd trade my soul for a wish
playPennies and dimes for a kiss
playI wasn't looking for this
playBut now you're in my way

playYour stare was holdin'
playRipped jeans, skin was showin'
playHot night, wind was blowin'
playWhere you think you're going, baby?

playHey, I just met you
playAnd this is crazy
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playIt's hard to look right
playAt you baby
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playHey, I just met you
playAnd this is crazy
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playAnd all the other boys
playTry to chase me
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playYou took your time with the call
playI took no time with the fall
playYou gave me nothing at all
playBut still, you're in my way

playI beg, and borrow and steal
playAt first sight and it's real
playI didn't know I would feel it
playBut it's in my way

playYour stare was holdin'
playRipped jeans, skin was showin'
playHot night, wind was blowin'
playWhere you think you're going, baby?

playHey, I just met you
playAnd this is crazy
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playIt's hard to look right
playAt you baby
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playHey, I just met you
playAnd this is crazy
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playAnd all the other boys
playTry to chase me
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playBefore you came into my life
playI missed you so bad
playI missed you so bad
playI missed you so, so bad

playBefore you came into my life
playI missed you so bad
playAnd you should know that
playI missed you so, so bad

playIt's hard to look right
playAt you baby
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playHey, I just met you
playAnd this is crazy
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playAnd all the other boys
playTry to chase me
playBut here's my number
playSo call me, maybe?

playBefore you came into my life
playI missed you so bad
playI missed you so bad
playI missed you so, so bad

playBefore you came into my life
playI missed you so bad
playAnd you should know that

playSo call me, maybe?

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

"I generally just play eyes at a guy and hope he comes and approaches me, but in this particular instance I was thinking this is how I would do it."

"I’m not overly confident in love. I’d probably be more coy about it, I guess, just like, ‘call me, maybe? If you want to?'"


So there it is: the message isn't so much flirtatious, but a sign of a lack of confidence; a hesitance as defense mechanism.
