Shawn Mendes – What If I Told You A Story, In this song, Shawn is reflecting upon the decisions he has made and the remorse he feels when he thinks about how he could have done things differently in order to keep the girl that he has serious feelings for.
He confronts himself in the song by acknowledging that he had his shot but made poor choices which have resulted in agony.
In the chorus, he is confessing his love while simultaneously giving us the storyline of what went down. He explains that he is still hung up on her and blames himself immensely for not having done what he now knows he should have done.
Essence Thoughts: Face Your Fears By Aceboygbenz
In the second verse, he admits that there are certain moments that raise his hopes of reconciling with the girl, but their chances are barred by the current man in her life.
This is a song that many of us can relate to as we have all taken somebody for granted in one way or another. ((as the song has not been released officially, please keep in mind that you should not share the audio if you find it somehow out of respect for Shawn.)
