Ah-ah, hey
Ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, hey
Ah-ah, ah-ah

He knows
Dirty secrets that I keep
Does he know it's killing me?
He knows, he knows
D-d-does he know
Another's hands have touched my skin
I won't tell him where I've been
He knows, he knows, he knows

It's tearing me apart
She's slipping away (I'm slipping away)
Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
The pictures on her phone
She's not coming home (I'm not coming home)
Coming home, coming home

I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
Just lied to me, "there's no other" (hey)
I know what you did last summer
Tell me where you've been
I know what you did last summer (ah-ah)
Look me in the eyes, my lover (hey)
I know what you did last summer

I know

When she looks me in the eyes
They don't seem as bright
No more, no more
I know

Would I promise her that night
Cross my heart and hope to die

It's tearing me apart (it's tearing me apart)
She's slipping away (I'm slipping away)
Am I just hanging on to all the words she used to say?
The pictures on her phone (the pictures on my phone)
She's not coming home (I'm not coming home)
Oh, na, na, na, yeah

Overall Meaning

"1+1" by Camila Cabello is a song about a relationship that's falling apart due to the weight of unspoken secrets. The song begins with the lines "He knows/ Dirty secrets that I keep/ Does he know it's killing me?" suggesting that the singer is struggling to maintain her relationship while also hiding something from her partner. The chorus "I know what you did last summer/ Tell me where you've been" implies that there's been some kind of betrayal or infidelity, and the singer is desperately trying to get her partner to admit to it.


The second verse includes the line "When she looks me in the eyes/ They don't seem as bright/ No more, no more," which suggests that the singer is losing trust in her partner as their relationship breaks down. The repetition of "I know" throughout the song emphasizes the weight of this knowledge and the power that it holds over both the singer and her partner. Ultimately, the song ends on a bittersweet note with the repeated lines "I know you didn't mean it though/ I can't seem to let you go, can't seem to hold you close," suggesting that despite everything, the singer still loves her partner and is struggling to let them go.


Overall, "1+1" is a deeply emotional song about the pain of secrets and the struggle to maintain a relationship in the face of betrayal. Its catchy melody and powerful lyrics make it a memorable addition to Camila Cabello's discography.
