Charlie Puth Lyrics

We Don't Talk Anymore Lyrics
[Charlie Puth:]
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do...

I just heard you found the one you've been looking
You've been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn't me
Cause even after all this time I still wonder
Why I can't move on
Just the way you did so easily

Don't wanna know
What kind of dress you're wearing tonight
If he's holding onto you so tight
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

[Selena Gomez:]
I just hope you're lying next to somebody
Who knows how to love you like me
There must be a good reason that you're gone
Every now and then I think you
Might want me to come show up at your door
But I'm just too afraid that I'll be wrong

Don't wanna know
If you're looking into her eyes
If she's holding onto you so tight the way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

[Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez:]
That we don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
(We don't we don't)
What was all of it for?
(We don't we don't)
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
Like we used to do

Don't wanna know
What kind of dress you're wearing tonight
If he's giving it to you just right
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game
Now I can't get you out of my brain
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
(We don't we don't)
We don't talk anymore
Like we used to do
We don't love anymore
(We don't we don't)
What was all of it for?
(We don't we don't)
Oh, we don't talk anymore
Like we used to do

(We don't talk anymore)
Don't wanna know
What kind of dress you're wearing tonight (Oh)
If he's holding onto you so tight (Oh)
The way I did before
(We don't talk anymore)
I overdosed
Should've known your love was a game (Oh)
Now I can't get you out of my brain (Woah)
Oh, it's such a shame

That we don't talk anymore

We Don't Talk Anymore Info:

• The original inspiration for the lyrics came about when Puth was driving on Santa Monica Boulevard with his friend, whom he hadn't seen in four months. He recalled:
"Last time I saw him he was so infatuated and in love with this girl, and would literally talk about her every second, and always just literally with the ups and downs and the sideways and whatever."

"When I saw him after four months of not seeing him, of being on tour, I was like, Oh, how is so and so doing? And he was like, Oh, we don't talk anymore. And literally as he said that I was like, 'We don't talk anymore. We don't talk anymore. We don't talk anymore. Like we used to do.' Simple."

• Charlie Puth wrote the song in Tokyo, Japan. He said "I was in my hotel room, at the Mandarin Hotel, looking out at this wonderful city from the top floor, and I called my guitarist who was in the next room and I said, 'Dude, can you come to my room really quickly and play this guitar line?' I didn't have a microphone, so I recorded his guitar with my iPhone, and I put it in the mix. Then, we went to the Philippines the next day, and I put the kick drum in."

• The song features Selena Gomez. He said:
"I met up with Selena, and she went through a very public relationship, on and off, and she could just relate to the song and the lyrical sentiment. I was playing the song for her, and she just started singing the second verse. I got chills. I was like, 'Oh my gosh, that sounds so real. You need to sing on it.' And she said yes."

"I'm good friends with her now, and we talked about wanting to collaborate, and I was finishing the song, and I was like, 'Wouldn't it be cool if you sang the second verse?' And that's really how it happened. She came over; she recorded it. I didn't even have a studio set up; she recorded it in my closet, and it really added a lot to the record."
