Song of the Day #3,616: ‘Never Be the Same’ – Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello has the distinction of recording Camila, the first album I ever downloaded after signing up for the Amazon Music streaming service.

She also sits at #8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 with ‘Never Be the Same,’ the lead-off track from that album.

I’m sure she’s more proud of the former accomplishment.

This song is one giant love-as-a-drug metaphor and features Cabello pronouncing heroin so it rhymes with nicotine and morphine. Despite that silly touch, I like it quite a bit. It’s an interesting and unexpected intro to an interesting and unexpected album.

[Verse 1]
Somethin’ must’ve gone wrong in my brain
Got your chemicals all in my veins
Feelin’ all the highs, feelin’ all the pain
Let go on the wheel, it’s the bullet lane
Now I’m seein’ red, not thinkin’ straight
Blurrin’ all the lines, you intoxicate me

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroin, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, you’re all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never ever, ever be the same

[Post-Chorus]
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

[Verse 2]
Sneakin’ in L.A. when the lights are low
Off of one touch, I could overdose
You said, “stop playin’ it safe
Girl, I wanna see you lose control”

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroin, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, you’re all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never ever, ever be the same

[Post-Chorus]
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

[Bridge]
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head (I blame)
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head

[Chorus]
I’m sayin’ it’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame (you’re to blame)
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never be the same (I’ll never be the…)
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never ever, ever be the same

    Catchy song. Sounds like something Ariana Grande might record.
