Call Me Maybe
Carly Rae Jepsen Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I threw a wish in the well
Don't ask me I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell
And now you're in my way
I'd trade my soul for a wish
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
It's hard to look right at you, baby
But here's my number, so call me maybe
Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys try to chase me
But here's my number, so call me maybe

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all
But still you're in my way
I beg and borrow and steal
At first sight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it
But it's in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
It's hard to look right at you, baby
But here's my number, so call me maybe
Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys try to chase me
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

It's hard to look right at you, baby
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys try to chase me
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me maybe

Line by Line Meaning

I threw a wish in the well
I made a wish in a hole in the ground


Don't ask me I'll never tell
I won't tell you what I wished for


I looked at you as it fell
I saw you when I made the wish


And now you're in my way
Now you're blocking my path


I'd trade my soul for a wish
I'd give up the most important part of myself for this wish


Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I'm willing to pay anything to kiss you


I wasn't looking for this
I didn't expect to feel this way


But now you're in my way
But now you're in my thoughts constantly


Your stare was holding
You were looking at me intensely


Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Your clothes were torn and your skin was visible


Hot night, wind was blowin'
It was warm out and the wind was blowing


Where you think you're going baby?
Where do you think you're headed?


Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
I just met you and this situation is crazy


But here's my number, so call me maybe
Here's my phone number, maybe you'll call me


It's hard to look right at you baby
It's difficult for me to look at you directly


Before you came into my life
Before I met you


I missed you so bad
I longed for you so much


And you should know that
I want you to be aware of how much I missed you


I beg and borrow and steal
I'll do whatever it takes to be with you


At first sight and it's real
I fell for you immediately and it's genuine


I didn't know I would feel it
I didn't expect to have these feelings


But it's in my way
But now these feelings are holding me back


And all the other boys try to chase me
Other guys are interested in me

But now you're in my way

Your stare was holdin'
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you

Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me, maybe?

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all
But still, you're in my way

I beg, and borrow and steal
At first sight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it
But it's in my way

Your stare was holdin'
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blowin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
