Wicked Games
The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I left my girl back home
I don't love her no more
And she'll never fucking know that
These fucking eyes that I'm staring at
Let me see that ass
Look at all this cash
And I emptied out my cards too
Now I'm fucking leaning on that

Bring your love, baby, I could bring my shame
Bring the drugs, baby, I could bring my pain
I got my heart right here
I got my scars right here
Bring the cups, baby, I could bring the drank
Bring your body, baby, I could bring you fame
And that's my motherfucking words too
Just let me motherfucking love you

Listen, ma, I'll give you all I got
Get me off of this, I need confidence in myself
Yeah, yeah, yeah, ohh, yeah, ohh
Listen, ma, I'll give you all of me
Give me all of it, I need all of it to myself
Whoa-whoa, whoa
So tell me you love me
(Only for tonight, only for the night)
Even though you don't love me
(Oh-whoa, oh-whoa)
Just tell me you love me
(I'll give you what I need) Ohh-yeah
(I'll give you all of me)
Even though you don't love me
(Oh-whoa) Yeah, yeah
(Oh-whoa) Yeah, yeah

Uh, let me see you dance
I love to watch you dance
Take you down another level
And get you dancing with the Devil
Take a shot of this
But I'm warning you
I'm on that shit that you can't smell, baby
So, put down your perfume

Bring your love, baby, I could bring my shame
Bring the drugs, baby, I could bring my pain
Oh, I got my heart right here
Oh, I got my scars right here
Bring the cups, baby, I could bring the drank
Bring your body, baby, I could bring you fame
And that's my motherfucking words too, ayy
So let me motherfucking love you

Listen, ma, I'll give you all I got
Get me off of this (off of this), I need confidence (confidence) in myself
Ohh, oh, ayy, ayy, ayy
Listen, ma, I'll give you all of me (ooh)
Give me all of it, I need all of it to myself
I need all of it, so tell me you love me, yeah
(Only for tonight) Ohh
(Only for the night)
Even though you don't love me, yeah
(Oh-whoa) Ohh
(Oh-whoa)
Just tell me you love me
(I'll give you what I need) Ohh-oh
(I'll give you all of me)




Even though you don't love me, ohh, yeah
(Oh-whoa, oh-whoa) Ohh

Overall Meaning

The Weeknd's "Wicked Games" is a song that appears to be about a dysfunctional relationship that is built on lies, lust, and the need to escape reality through addiction. The chorus reveals the singer's desires - he wants the woman to bring her love, and in return, he will bring his shame, pain, and addiction. He acknowledges that he is doing something wrong, but he can't help himself. He wants to love her, even if it's just for the night, or even if she doesn't love him back.


The opening lines entail the singer's state of mind that he's no longer in love with his former lover and that she doesn't know it. The following lines hint towards him having a physical attraction to someone else and feeling the need to indulge in materialistic pleasures while keeping it discreet. The lyrics suggest that he's living without remorse and putting up a front to cover up his misdeeds from society. The chorus portrays a moment of vulnerability where he confesses his weaknesses and proposes an agreement of sorts where he'll give her everything in exchange for a moment of love where he can escape his trauma and addictions.


In summary, the lyrics of "Wicked Games" can be interpreted as a cry for help from a man caught in a cycle of addiction, emotional dishonesty, and the need to escape from reality through any means necessary. The singer is aware of his self-destructive behavior but is unable to break free from it due to his addiction.
