Attention Lyrics
Jump to:
Whoa oh oh hm

You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwin' that dirt all on my name
'Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I'd call you up
You've been going round, going round, going round every party in LA
'Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I'd be at one

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret
You got me thinking 'bout when you were mine
And now I'm all up on ya, what you expect
But you're not coming home with me tonight

You just want attention
You don't want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
Yeah, you just want attention
I knew from the start
You're just making sure I'm never gettin' over you

You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwing that dirt all on my name
'Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I'd call you up
Baby, now that we're, now that we're, now that we're right here standing face to face
You already know, already know, already know that you won
Ohh

I know that dress is karma (dress is karma), perfume regret
You got me thinking 'bout when you were mine
(You got me thinking 'bout when you were mine)
And now I'm all up on ya (all up on ya), what you expect
(Oh baby)
But you're not coming home with me tonight (oh no)

You just want attention
You don't want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
Yeah, you just want attention (ohh)
I knew from the start (start)
You're just making sure I'm never gettin' over you (oh you)
Ohh

What are you doin' to me?
What are you doin', love? (What are you doin'?)
What are you doin' to me?
What are you doin', love? (What are you doin'?)
What are you doin' to me?
What are you doin', love? (What are you doin'?)
What are you doin' to me?
What are you doin', love?

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret
You got me thinking 'bout when you were mine
And now I'm all up on ya, what you expect
But you're not coming home with me tonight

You just want attention
You don't want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
Yeah, you just want attention
I knew from the start
You're just making sure I'm never gettin' over you
(Over you)

What are you doin' to me? (heyy)
What are you doin', love? (What are you doin', what?)
What are you doin' to me?
What are you doin', love? (Yeah, you just want attention)
What are you doin' to me? (I knew from the start)
What are you doin' love?
(You're just making sure I'm never gettin' over you)
What are you doin' to me?
What are you doin', huh?

Attention Info:

• The original idea of "Attention" began to develop in 2016 when Charlie started to record bits of the song while he was on tour in Japan. He said:
"I was reading someone's Instagram and [he] had poured [his] heart out about this girl. I think [he was] trying to convey some sort of message, like 'I've moved on and I'm a guy and I'm strong.' But what I got from that was, 'Wow, this girl completely played you and this girl just wanted attention.' And I just started singing, 'You just want attention.'"

• Throughout the song, the singer realizes that his partner only wants to be around him for attention and other ulterior motives instead of loving him for who he is.
