Pretty Please
Dua Lipa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Somewhere in the middle, I
Think I lied a little, I
I said if we took it there, I wasn't gonna change
But that went out the window, yeah

I know that I seem a little stressed out
But you're here now, and you're turning me on
I wanna feel a different kind of tension
Yeah, you guessed it, the kind that's fun
Hate it when you leave me unattended
'Cause I miss ya, and I need your love
But my mind is running wild, could you help me slow it down?

Put my mind at ease
Pretty please
I need your hands on me
Sweet relief
Pretty please

Exactly where I want me, yeah
Underneath your body, yeah
If we take it further, I swear I ain't gonna break
So baby, come try me, baby, come find me
Baby, don't wind me up

I know that I seem a little stressed out
But you're here now, and you're turning me on
I wanna feel a different kind of tension
Yeah, you guessed it, the kind that's fun
Hate it when you leave me unattended
'Cause I miss ya, and I need your love
But my mind is running wild, could you help me slow it down?

Put my mind at ease
Pretty please
I need your hands on me
Sweet relief
Pretty
Put my mind at ease
Trickle down my spine
Oh, you look so pretty please
Every single night
I need your hands on me
When your kisses climb
Oh, you give me sweet relief
Make me feel so pretty
Would you help me out please?

(Pretty)
(Pretty)
(Pretty)
(Pretty)

Hate it when you leave me unattended
'Cause I miss ya, and I need your love
But my mind is running wild, could you help me slow it down?

Put my mind at ease
Trickle down my spine
Oh, you look so pretty please
Every single night
I need your hands on me
When your kisses climb
Oh, you give me sweet relief
Make me feel so pretty
Would you help me out please?





Pretty please

Overall Meaning

The song "Pretty Please" by Dua Lipa explores the singer's desire for intimacy with their partner. The first verse describes how the singer initially lied to their partner about not changing if they took their relationship to the next level. However, these promises were easily broken once they were physically together. The chorus emphasizes the singer's stress levels, but the presence of their partner helps turn them on, making them yearn for a type of tension that is enjoyable. When their partner isn't around, they feel unattended and miss their love, but their overactive mind prevents them from fully enjoying their company. The singer begs for their partner's embrace, hoping for relief and relaxation in their presence, making them feel pretty and valued.
