pov
Ariana Grande Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's like you got superpowers
Turn my minutes into hours
You got more than 20/20, babe
Made of glass, the way you see through me
You know me better than I do
Can't seem to keep nothin' from you
How you touch my soul from the outside
Permeate my ego and my pride

I wanna love me (ooh)
The way that you love me (ooh)
Ooh, for all of my pretty and all of my ugly too
I'd love to see me from your point of view
I wanna trust me (trust me)
The way that you trust me (trust me)
Oh, 'cause nobody ever loved me like you do
I'd love to see me from your point of view

I'm getting used to receiving
Still getting good at not leaving
I'ma love you even though I'm scared
Learnin' to be grateful for myself
You love my lips 'cause they say the
Things we've always been afraid of
I can feel it starting to subside
Learnin' to believe in what is mine

I wanna love me (ooh)
The way that you love me (ooh)
Ooh, for all of my pretty and all of my ugly too
I'd love to see me from your point of view
I wanna trust me (trust me)
The way that you trust me (trust me)
Ooh, 'cause nobody ever loved me like you do
I'd love to see me from your point of view

I couldn't believe it
Or see it for myself
Know I be impatient
But now I'm out here fallin', fallin'
Frozen, slowly thawing, got me right
I won't keep you waitin', waitin'
All my baggage fadin' safely (baggage fadin')
And if my eyes deceive me
Won't let them stray too far away

I wanna love me (ooh)
The way that you love me (ooh)
Ooh, for all of my pretty and all of my ugly too
I'd love to see me from your point of view
I wanna trust me, ooh (trust me)
The way that you trust me, baby (trust me)




'Cause nobody ever loved me like you do
I'd love to see me from your point of view, yeah

Overall Meaning

In Ariana Grande's song "pov", the lyrics are about how her partner makes her feel and how she sees herself through their eyes. The opening lines express the power her partner has over her, where they can make time seem to stand still. She describes her partner's perception of her as being transparent "made of glass" and how they know her better than she knows herself. The relationship is so strong that Ariana refers to her partner's love as having superpowers, permeating her ego and pride, and touching her soul from the outside.


Later in the song, Ariana expresses how she wants to see herself from her partner's perspective, both the good and bad parts of herself that they love. She also acknowledges her fears and insecurities, but is grateful for herself and is learning to trust and love herself like her partner loves and trusts her.


Overall, "pov" is a beautiful and introspective piece about self-love and the power of a caring partner's perspective.

I know it’s not the songs intent, but I play this song almost every time I feed my month old son. Being a new mom and being on maternity leave I get so insecure about my new body and sometimes feel like I’m not doing enough. I listen to this song and can’t help but cry. He looks into my eyes and smiles and I know he loves me for just being me and I’m reminded of how amazing I am.

@camille7828

Your doing amazing. Every single knew mumma feels like that but your a beautiful, amazing strong beautiful lady!! This is mine and mine and my daughters song. No matter how you feel they see you as the strongest, beautifulist person and they love you and you love them unconditionally no matter what! Always and forver! 😘

@JVDanielcr

You are a champion woman

@yolandamgobozi8987

Woman!!!!!! You are everything and more. You have created, grown and brought life to Earth. You have literally risked your life to bring a new person to life, and that person might be a little stranger but he loves you more than anything and that love is endless because it has no beginning or end. Your body is a reflection that you are a warrior and as a mother, it is something you will be because as soon as you brought that little one to Earth, the fight began because of this cruel but beautiful world. You are not only great because you are a mother but because you are WOMAN. You are apart of the soil of this world because you are always evolving, growing through pain and existing no matter how much you get put down. You are more than you think love, and from another woman: Thank you for being you. Thank you for waking up everyday even though it may seem hard. Thank you for taking on each day and not letting it bring you crashing down because you know there is more for you and your baby. Thank you for putting up with society. Thank you for simply being.

You are everything and more❤❤❤❤
