Call Out My Name
The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

We found each other
I helped you out of a broken place
You gave me comfort
But falling for you was my mistake

I put you on top, I put you on top
I claimed you so proud and openly
And when times were rough, when times were rough
I made sure I held you close to me

So call out my name (call out my name)
Call out my name when I kiss you so gently
I want you to stay (I want you to stay)
I want you to stay, even though you don't want me
Girl, why can't you wait? (why can't you wait, baby?)
Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of love?
Won't you call out my name? (call out my name)
Girl, call out my name, and I'll be on my way and
I'll be on my

I said I didn't feel nothing baby, but I lied
I almost cut a piece of myself for your life
Guess I was just another pit stop
'Til you made up your mind
You just wasted my time

You're on top, I put you on top
I claimed you so proud and openly, babe
And when times were rough, when times were rough
I made sure I held you close to me

So call out my name (call out my name, baby)
So call out my name when I kiss you
So gently, I want you to stay (I want you to stay)
I want you to stay even though you don't want me
Girl, why can't you wait? (girl, why can't you wait 'til I)
Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of loving?
Babe, call out my name (say call out my name, baby)
Girl, call out my name, and I'll be on my way, girl
I'll be on my

On my way, on my way
On my way, on my way, ooh
On my way, on my way, on my way




On my way, on my way, on my way
(On my)

Overall Meaning

In the lyrics to The Weeknd's song Call Out My Name, he reflects on a past relationship where he gave his all to his partner, even when things were tough, but ultimately ended up being hurt. In the first verse, he sings about the comfort he gave his partner and the mistake he made in falling for her. He put her on a pedestal, claiming her proudly and openly, but in the end, he was left wanting more. In the chorus, he begs for his partner to call out his name and stay with him, even though she doesn't want him anymore. He admits to lying about not feeling anything for her and feeling like a pitstop in her journey to find someone else. Despite this, he still wants her to call out his name and wishes she would wait for him to fall out of love before moving on.


These lyrics are indicative of the pain and heartbreak that can come from a relationship that ends poorly. The Weeknd's vulnerable lyrics speak to the universal experience of feeling like you gave too much to someone who didn't appreciate it or feeling like you were used as a stepping stone to someone else. The chorus's repetition of "call out my name" emphasizes the desperation and longing that can come from wanting someone who doesn't want you back.

Supongo que era sólo otra parada en boxes
