The song is Selena Gomez’s vulnerable expression of her traumatic emotional experience,
the one that many of us had been through something like it.
Vulnerable performance :
In black and white clip and simple clothes … Sitting on a chair with a lost stare and shocked laugh,
she sang her pain and made it seen.
Brave singer :
Brave Selena did the only reasonable thing, she used her experience and recycled it into a helpful art to her and her audience.
lyrics’ anatomy :
We always go into it blindly because emotions have a say over logic, I needed to lose you to find me
Because your hate was bigger than my love and I had to choose love over hate.
Self love :
This dance was killing me softly.. I needed to hate you to love me
Because there is one space in my heart and since you made it impossible for us two to be together
Then I have no other choice but to choose myself.
Mind games and gas-lighting :
You were so dangerous that ( you made me think I deserved it.) and I didn’t know that before until I discovered it ( in the thick of healing).
