Call Me Maybe

Lyrics

play I threw a   in the  
play Don't   me, I'll never tell
play I looked to you as it  
play And now you're in my way

play I'd   my soul for a wish
play Pennies and   for a kiss
play I wasn't looking for this
play But now you're in my way

play Your   was holdin'
play Ripped jeans,   was showin'
play Hot night,   was blowin'
play Where you think you're going, baby?

play Hey, I just met you
play And this is crazy
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play It's hard to look right
play At you baby
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play Hey, I just met you
play And this is crazy
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play And all the other boys
play Try to   me
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play You took your time with the  
play I took no time with the  
play You gave me   at all
play But still, you're in my way

play I beg, and   and steal
play At first sight and it's  
play I didn't know I would   it
play But it's in my way

play Your stare was holdin'
play Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
play Hot night, wind was blowin'
play Where you think you're going, baby?

play Hey, I just met you
play And this is crazy
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play It's hard to look right
play At you baby
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play Hey, I just met you
play And this is crazy
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play And all the other boys
play Try to chase me
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play Before you came into my life
play I missed you so bad
play I missed you so bad
play I missed you so, so bad

play Before you came into my life
play I missed you so bad
play And you should know that
play I missed you so, so bad

play It's hard to look right
play At you baby
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play Hey, I just met you
play And this is crazy
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play And all the other boys
play Try to chase me
play But here's my number
play So call me, maybe?

play Before you came into my life
play I missed you so bad
play I missed you so bad
play I missed you so, so bad

play Before you came into my life
play I missed you so bad
play And you should know that

play So call me, maybe?

"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.
