The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'ma care for you
I'ma care for you, you, you, you

You make it look like it's magic (oh yeah)
'Cause I see nobody, nobody but you, you, you
I'm never confused, hey, hey
And I'm so used to bein' used

So I love when you call unexpected
'Cause I hate when the moment's expected
So I'ma care for you, you, you
I'ma care for you, you, you, you, yeah

'Cause girl, you're perfect
You're always worth it
And you deserve it
The way you work it
'Cause girl, you earned it, yeah
Girl, you earned it, yeah

You know our love would be tragic (oh yeah)
So you don't pay it, don't pay it no mind, mind, mind
We live with no lies, hey, hey
And you're my favorite kind of night

So I love when you call unexpected
'Cause I hate when the moment's expected
So I'ma care for you, you, you
I'ma care for you, you, you, you, yeah

'Cause girl, you're perfect (girl, you're perfect)
You're always worth it (always worth it)
And you deserve it (and you deserve it)
The way you work it (the way you work it)
'Cause girl, you earned it, (earned it) yeah
Girl, you earned it, yeah

On that lonely night (lonely night)
We said it wouldn't be love, but we felt the rush (fell in love)
It made us believe it was only us (was only us)
Convinced we were broken inside, yeah
Inside, yeah

'Cause girl, you're perfect (girl, you're perfect)
You're always worth it (you're always worth it)
And you deserve it (and you deserve it)
The way you work it (the way you work it)
'Cause girl, you earned it (girl, you earned it), yeah

Overall Meaning

The Weeknd's song "Earned It" is a melodic reflection of a relationship between two individuals who seem to have deep feelings for each other. The lyrics are sorrowful and emotional, emphasizing the depth of the couple's love. The singer expresses his admiration for his significant other and how he's willing to care for her even though he’s used to being used. The couple seems to be aware that their love would be tragic, but they're determined to make it work regardless of the challenges they may face.


The line "So you don't pay it, don't pay it no mind, mind, mind" can be seen as a warning to other people who try to interfere in their relationship, or it can be referring to the stigma associated with their love. They continue to value their deep love, live their truth without lies, and enjoy each other's company to the fullest. The chorus "Girl, you earned it" is repeated several times throughout the song, which is supposed to make the listener feel as if the couple has put in hard work to achieve and maintain their love, which has earned them the feelings and admiration they have for each other.
