I Know What You Did Last Summer Lyrics
(with Camila Cabello)

[Shawn & Camila:]
Ahhh
Hey-ey
Ahhh - Ahhh
Ahh
Hey-ey
Ahhh - Ahhh

[Camila:]
He knows
Dirty secrets that I keep
Does he know it's killing me?
He knows, he knows
D-d-does he know
Another's hand have touched my skin
I won't tell him where I've been
He knows, he knows, he knows

[Shawn & Camila:]
It's tearing me apart
She's slipping away (I'm slipping away)
Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
The pictures on her phone
She's not coming home (I'm not coming home)
Coming home, coming home

[Shawn & Camila:]
I know what you did last summer
(Ah-ah)
Just lie to me there's no other
(He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been
I know what you did last summer
(Ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover
(He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been

[Shawn & Camila:]
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know
I didn't mean it, no
I didn't mean it, mean it, no
Can't seem to let you go
Can't seem to hold you close
I know

[Shawn:]
When she looks me in the eyes
They don't seem as bright
No more, no more, I know
Then she loved me at one time
Would I promise her that night
Cross my heart and hope to die

[Shawn & Camila:]
It's tearing me apart (It's tearing me apart)
And she's slipping away (I'm slipping away)
Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
The pictures on her phone (The pictures on her phone)
And she's not coming home (I'm not coming home)
Oh, na, na, na, yeah

[Shawn & Camila:]
I know what you did last summer
(Ah-ah)
Just lie to me, there is no other
(He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been
I know what you did last summer
(Ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover
(He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been

I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (no, no, no)
Can't seem to let you go,
Can't seem to keep you close
(Hold me close)
I can't seem to let you go,
I can't seem to keep you close
(You know I didn't mean it though)
Tell me where you've been lately
Tell me where you've been lately
(Just hold me close)
Tell me where you've been lately
Tell me where you've been lately
(Don't, don't, don't, don't let me go)
I can't seem to keep you close,
I can't seem to let you go
(I didn't mean it, though)
I know you didn't mean it though
I know you didn't mean it though (I don't wanna let you go)
Tell me you didn't mean it, though
Tell me you didn't mean it, though (no, no, no)
(Can't seem to let you go, seem to let you go)
I know you didn't mean it, though
I wanna know you need it, though
(Hold me close)
I know you didn't mean it though
I know you didn't mean it though
(Hold me close)
I can't seem to let you go,
Can't seem to hold you close

[Shawn & Camila:]
I know what you did last summer
(Ah-ah)
Just lie to me there is no other
(He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been
I know what you did last summer
(Ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover
(He-ey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been

[Shawn & Camila:]
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (Ah-ah)
(He-ey)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (Ah-ah, ah-ah)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (Ah-ah)
(He-ey)
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know (Ah-ah, ah-ah)

I Know What You Did Last Summer Info:

• Shawn wrote the song with Camila Cabello of Fifth Harmony backstage at one of Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour shows.

• In the summer of 2014, Mendes and Cabello were opening acts on Austin Mahone's tour, but they didn't spend much time together. The next summer, they met up at the Taylor's show - Shawn was an opening act and Camila went to see it with Ally Brooke, also of Fifth Harmony.

Camila explained:
"We were just kind of jamming out. We weren't really consciously writing a song. We kind of started spitting out melodies and put lyrics to it; I don't think we knew we had a song."

• Camila explained the song meaning:
"It's basically a conversation between two people in a relationship where it's dying but nobody wants to admit that it's dying... It's about finding out that somebody had been cheating on you, and the song is that moment right before you confront that person where you both know what's next, but it's killing the both of you"

• "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is the name of a horror movie from 1997 starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. Cabello and Mendes claim the song has nothing to do with the film, and the title is pure coincidence. They didn't realize it was a movie title until after they started recording the song.

• The "I know, I know, I know..." refrain was so similar to Bill Withers's Ain't No Sunshine that he was given a songwriting credit on this track.
