Song of the Day #4,223: ‘Camouflage’ – Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez just released a new album, Rare, that I played once in the background the day it came out. It’s receiving some of the best reviews of her career, and I owe it another listen.

In the meantime, here’s a track from Gomez’s 2015 album Revival, which I like very much.

Following this album, Gomez suffered from physical and mental health issues tied to lupus. She checked herself into rehab to treat her depression and anxiety attacks.

She appears to have come through that rough time in good shape physically, mentally and artistically. I’ll make a note to post something from the new album soon.

[Verse 1]
Dead-end streets and boulevards
You threw in the towel, I broke your heart
But there’s a first time for everything
Who would’ve thought you’d feel so cold
And all these memories seem so old
To think you were my everything

[Pre-Chorus]
Remember when we’d talk all night
But time ain’t easy on us, how can love die?

[Chorus]
I got so much shit to say
But I can’t help feeling like I’m camouflage
Fortress around my heart
You were mine just yesterday
Now I have no idea who you are
It’s like you camouflage

[Post-Chorus]
But it’s good to see you here again
I don’t wanna say goodbye
But it’s about half past ten
And I have to catch my ride

[Verse 2]
Riding alone on the 405
And life’s so fragile, it’s like I could cry
If that’s the last time I’d see you again
But I’ll never tell you just how I felt
You might just not care, and it might just not help
What if the feelings just don’t make no sense to you, you

[Pre-Chorus]
Remember when we’d talk all night
But time ain’t easy on us, how can love die?

[Chorus]
I got so much shit to say
But I can’t help feeling like I’m camouflage
Fortress around my heart
You were mine just yesterday
Now I have no idea who you are
It’s like you camouflage

[Post-Chorus]
But it’s good to see you here again
I don’t wanna say goodbye
But it’s about half past ten
And I have to catch my ride

[Chorus]
I got so much shit to say
But I can’t help feeling like I’m camouflage
Fortress around my heart
You were mine just yesterday
Now I have no idea who you are
It’s like you camouflage

[Post-Chorus]
But it’s good to see you here again
I don’t wanna say goodbye
But it’s about half past ten
And I have to catch my ride
