Album Review: 7 Realest Lyrics About Life From Camila Cabello

By  January 15, 2018

“It started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself.”

Camila Cabello’s self-titled solo debut album (previously titled The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving) is finally upon us and Camilizers from all around the world cannot get enough of it. Naturally, they took to Twitter to express their love and reaction to the 11-track record.

 

 

In her Instagram post, Cabello described the highly anticipated album as the soundtrack to her 2016 and that all the tracks on the album stood for special memories in her life. As fans, we might not have fully understood what she went through but this album aims to give us a sneak peek into her struggles and victories.

Through her lyrics, we gained an insight into what she’s been through in the past few years. We couldn’t help but realise how relatable some of the lines and how they also depicted a little bit of our own lives.

 

1.     “Just one hit of you, I knew I'll never be the same”

From Camila’s opening track, Never Be The Same, this line embodies the times we meet someone so significant that our lives change. Whether it was a friend that you’ll hold dearly for life, or a mentor that you’ll always turn to for advice, they created such an impact on you that you will never be the same.

 

2.     “Yeah, suddenly, it all came back, it all came back”

We found this line in All These Years and thought it depicted all those times memories (good, bad and downright embarrassing) flooded back to us.

 

3.     “She loves control, she wants it her way”

As the chorus of She Loves Control goes, everyone is sometimes a control freak or at least we know people in our lives that love to be in control. In school, there’s always that one person that loves to take charge and make decisions for group projects. At work, there’s always that one person that insists on doing things their way.

 

4.     “Got me feelin' like, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh”

This is of course from the album’s lead single, Havana, an ode to her hometown. This line pretty much sums up how we feel when we meet our crushes and idols, doesn’t it?

 

5.     “But loving you had consequences”

Known as the most personal and tear-jerking track on the album, Consequences shed a light into Cabello’s struggle. It’s true everything in life has consequences, it is then up to us whether to embrace them or to let them bring us down.

 

6.     “Every time I let somebody in. Then I find out what they're all about”

As the chorus of her promotional single Real Friends goes, this line talks about the times we put our trust in people but later realise that they aren’t who they seem to be. Maybe they had motives?

 

7.     “Something's gotta change, but I know that it won't”

From Something’s Gotta Give, we couldn’t help but relate this to all the times we get stuck in situations and can’t seem to find a way out. Then, the only resolution to is wait things our or to start the change ourselves.

This album marks the beginning of a new chapter for Cabello and we can’t wait to see what the future has in stored for her!
