Overall Meaning

In Shawn Mendes's song Ruin, the singer expresses his internal conflicts about his feelings for a past lover. He asks whether she still thinks about him in the same way he thinks about her, and whether she remembers the intense emotions they once shared. Mendes acknowledges that he doesn't want to disrupt her current state of happiness, but at the same time, he believes that he is the only one for her. He repeats the question "Do I ever cross your mind?" several times, which emphasizes his longing for some sort of acknowledgement from her. In essence, the song is about unresolved feelings and the complicated nature of love.


The chorus of the song, where Mendes repeatedly sings "I'm the only one for ya," may seem possessive or obsessive to some listeners, but it also conveys the desperation and vulnerability that one can feel after a breakup. The lyrics "Not tryna ruin your happiness at all" show Mendes's willingness to prioritize his ex's well-being over his own desires. Overall, the song Ruin is a poignant reflection on the lingering effects of past relationships and the struggle to move on.

@@lindsayhazelton2645 Keep in remembrance that no climate change, IT IS THE WRATH OF GOD which we fully deserve, cause we are SICK AND EVIL. Daily abusing one another. Living in all UN – natural ways. Praising sins rather then RIGHTEOUS AND HOLY LIVES. And yes, the wicked, masons, have also made tools with which they manipulate the weather time and time again, but ultimate power is in the hands of THE MAKER OF ALL THINGS.

1 Peter 5:6 - Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Luke 21:34 - And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
1 Thessalonians 5:9
For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
James 1:20
For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
Colossians 3:6
For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
Romans 1:18 - For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
John 3:36 - He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
Isaiah 26:21 - For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Ezekiel 25:17 - And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

Nahum 1:2-6 - God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
Revelation 20:15 - And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.


Mankind got to “taste” the WRATH OF GOD twice already, now we live waiting the 3th time, to “taste” again the WRATH OF GOD.
