Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe lyrics

[Verse 1]
I threw a wish in the well
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell
And now you're in my way


I'll trade my soul for a wish
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this
But now you're in my way

[Refrain]
Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans, skin was showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
It's hard to look right, at you baby
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys, try to chase me
But here's my number, so call me maybe

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all, but still you're in my way

I beg and borrow and steal
At first sight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it
But it's in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans, skin was showing
Hot night, wind was blowing
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
It's hard to look right at you baby
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys try to chase
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

It's hard to look right, at you baby
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy
But here's my number, so call me maybe
And all the other boys, try to chase me,
But here's my number, so call me maybe

Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad... I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me maybe

    This song is about a college chick who thinks a boy is kinda cute so she gives him his number. When he calls she blows him off the first time and acts like she was sleeping. The real beauty of the song is that carly really went through this with a baseball player from harvard. They are now dating and he is the guy who ends up lipsyncing her song in the van. Carly rocks and so does this song. Beautiful lyrics with such deep meaning. Unbelievable!

    We think this song is about the model holden nowel. We think this becuase it mantions his name in line 9 and talks about his being ripped and hot in the next 3. We also think is because it mention "don't ask don't tell" at the beginning, alluding to his preferances. It then goes on to describe a picture where he was kissing another man in a hot tube at night, via lines 6, 10 and 11.
    If you think this is incorrect, then ask yourself why holden nowell even played in the music video~.

    It's a really cool song and it's really catchy so it gets stuck in your head and I think that's a good characteristic to have in a song. It's sort of captures all of the thoughts in a typical teenage girl's mind to just like a guy when you don't even know him! I love carly rae jepson because she has an amazing voice and her look totally goes with this song.

    You're hoping this boy you really like talks to you personally or on the phone. You're kind of thinking that he might be the one so you try to catch his attention by doing things he does. You start dressing up to look good in front of him hoping he asks you out. You try acting s*** and stuff like that. And when you finally get him you're heads over heels for him. And I hope I got the meaning right. :))
