Nonsense
Sabrina Carpenter Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

No
(Oh, la-la) da-ah-ah, ah (ah-ah)
(Uh, uh, uh, yeah)

Think I only want one number in my phone
I might change your contact to "don't leave me alone"
You said you like my eyes and you like to make 'em roll
Treat me like a queen, now you got me feelin' thrown, oh

But I can't help myself
When you get close to me
Baby, my tongue goes numb
Sounds like bleh, blah, blee
I don't want no one else (don't want)
Baby, I'm in too deep
Here's a lil' song I wrote (a song I wrote)
It's about you and me (me)

I'll be honest
Lookin' at you got me thinkin' nonsense
Cartwheels in my stomach when you walk in
When you got your arms around me
Oh, it feels so good I had to jump the octave
I think I got an ex but I forgot him
And I can't find my chill, I must have lost it
I don't even know I'm talkin' nonsense
I'm talkin', I'm talkin' (ah)

I'm talkin' all around clock
I'm talkin' hope nobody knocks
I'm talkin' opposite of soft
I'm talkin' wild, wild thoughts
You gotta keep up with me
I got some young energy
I caught the L-O-V-E
How do you do this to me?

But I can't help myself
When you get close to me
Baby, my tongue goes numb
Sounds like blah, blah, bleh, blee
I don't want no one else (don't want)
Baby, I'm in too deep (too deep)
Here's a lil' song I wrote (a song I wrote)
It's about you and me

I'll be honest (honest)
Lookin' at you got me thinkin' nonsense
Cartwheels in my stomach when you walk in (when you walk in)
When you got your arms around me
Oh, it feels so good I had to hit the octave
I think I got an ex but I forgot him
And I can't find my chill, I must have lost it
I don't even know I'm talkin' nonsense (oh)
I'm talkin', I'm talkin', I'm talkin'

(I'm talkin', I'm talkin' na-na-na) I'm talkin', I'm talkin'
Blah, blah, blah, blah, uh-uh-uh-uh
Ah
I don't even know anymore
(Oh)

This song catchier than chickenpox is
I bet your house is where my other sock is
Woke up this morning, thought I'd write a pop hit
How quickly can you take your clothes off pop quiz?





That one's not gonna make it
Most of these aren't gonna make

Overall Meaning

Sabrina Carpenter’s song "Nonsense" talks about how love and attraction can make us feel and act in ridiculous ways. The song starts with Carpenter saying she only wants one number in her phone and saying she might change her contact to "don’t leave me alone". She then goes on to say that although her partner makes her feel like a queen, his presence makes her tongue go numb and she starts talking nonsense. Carpenter explains that she has an ex, but she forgot about him and lost her chill because she is so focused on her current lover.


Carpenter admits that her attraction to her lover is causing her to "think of nonsense" and that there are "cartwheels in [her] stomach when he walks in." She uses language and phrases that are silly and playful all throughout the song, such as saying that she thinks she caught "the L-O-V-E". Carpenter even writes a little pop song about her lover and herself while admitting that she doesn't even know she's talking nonsense.
