Selena Gomez – Good For You lyrics

[Verse 1: Selena Gomez]
I'm on my 14 carats
I'm 14 carat
Doing it up like Midas
Now you say I got a touch
So good, so good
Make you never wanna leave
So don't, so don't


[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to your heart beating

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you
I just wanna look good for you, good for you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you


[Verse 2: Selena Gomez]
I'm on my marquise diamonds
I'm a marquise diamond
Could even make that Tiffany jealous

You say I give it to you hard
So bad, so bad
Make you never wanna leave
I won't, I won't


[Pre-Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Gonna wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to how you're breathing

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you
I just wanna look good for you, good for you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you


[Bridge: Selena Gomez]
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I can take you there

Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I

[Verse 3: A$AP Rocky]
Hold on, take a minute, love
Cause I ain't trying to mess your image up

Like we mess around in triple cuffs
Stumble 'round town, pull your zipper up
Pants sag like I don't give a
I ain't trying to mess your business up

And I ain't trying to get you into stuff
But the way you touchin' on me in the club
Rubbin' on my miniature

John Hancock, the signature
Any time I hit it, know she finna fall through
And every time we get up, always end up on the news
Ain't worried bout no press and ain't worried bout the next chick
They love the way you dress and ain't got shit up on you
Jackpot, hit the jackpot
Just met a bad miss without the ass shots
You look good, girl, you know you did good, don't you?
You look good, girl, bet it feel good, don't it
?

[Chorus: Selena Gomez]
Cause I just wanna look good for you, good for you
Baby, let me be good to you, good to you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you

[Outro: Selena Gomez]
Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I

    I think this song is meant for Justin. I believe she's kinda telling him on what he's missing out on. She always dresses to impress. Whoever she ends up next, she's gonna be the type of person they would be proud to be with, something Justin wasn't. And she doesn't want the person to leave. She is going to make that person proud with her physical, mental, and sexual abilities. This is just my opinion.

    I think this song is about a sad woman who really wants her significant other to stay by using her looks and dressing up for him. She's desperate for him to always be there with her when he isn't even trying to make their relationship work. She ignores the signs and just wants him to stay, when really she needs to let him go... because he's already let her go. Now, not referring to Justin and Selena in any way; this is my view of the song itself, not the singer and her own relationships.

    I feel that she's trying to express how she used to do everything she could to make her man proud to have her. She used to do everything she could to impress him. I think she is trying to let him know how he missed out on someone who was willing to do it all for him. And that he won't meet someone else who is just like her. In a way she sort of misses him because he meant the world to her and she put her all to make him happy.

    I think come & get it and this song is about Justin Bieber. Selena is writing songs about how she feels about Justin saying that she's ready for when Justin wants her and that she's gonna look good for him, although she is being. I discreet as she saying she is over him and currently he isn't fighting back for her so she doesn't want to make a move.

    I think this is about her past relationship but at the same time I feel like she's trying to hard, it could be cause I'm just not use to her being sexy &/or talking about it but you can clearly tell in the video she had to practice bringing her sexy out & they tried to help her out with the bra-less takes & the shower scenes but for me I think she doesn't need all that, if this is about Justin then he just lost out & she should move on, you can't make a man want you no matter what you do, she's very pretty & still young, there are better fish in the sea & she needs to cast that line out if she really wants to be over him. Get over one by getting another, that's 3 times better so she wont even remember who JB is lol.
