Shawn Mendes – Lost lyrics

I walk down the street and all I can see
Is people taking pictures of what they're about to eat
Did you even notice the girl sitting across from you?
I sit in your room with nothing to do
Victim to the screen between me and you
Guess there's somebody else that you'd rather be talking to

Hold on
Time out
Help me

'Cause right now I wanna get lost in this moment
Keep both my eyes open
Nothing to prove, let's keep this to ourselves
And yeah, this connection has caught my attention
I don't wanna share this with anybody else
I wanna get lost, and I wanna get lost

We go out to shows but why do we go
If we're only gonna see it through the screens on our phones?
If we're all here together then why are we watching alone?
The world's so much bigger than posing for pictures
If all that we need's at the tip of our fingers
Then how did this happen, that we all fell so out of touch?

Hold on
Time out
Help me

'Cause right now I wanna get lost in this moment
Keep both my eyes open
Nothing to prove, let's keep this to ourselves
And yeah, this connection has caught my attention
I don't wanna share this with anybody else
I wanna get lost

Tell me how it feels
'Cause I know the hardest part
Is when you're holding something real,
You can see it in the dark

I'll tell you how it feels
And here's the hardest part
If you wanna reach for something real
You've gotta see it in the dark

I wanna get lost in this moment
Keep both my eyes open
And nothing to prove, let's keep this to ourselves
And yeah, this connection has caught my attention
I don't wanna share this with anybody else

I wanna get lost in this moment
Keep both my eyes open
And nothing to prove, let's keep this to ourselves
And yeah, this connection has caught my attention
I don't wanna share this with anybody else
I wanna get lost, I wanna get lost
And I wanna get lost

    "If we're only gonna see it through the screen on our phones?" this line shows you that the artist wants you to imagine what's really happening. People are on their phones even when out with their friends and not paying attention to them. "Hold on, Time out, Help me" which is repeated in the song many times. This line shows you that the artist really wants you to get the message, he wants you to stop and really think about what's going on and help fix it. People are just focusing on their phone screens and not focusing on the people around them and missing out on the experiences of things around them. People these days aren't paying attention to other around them, they are glued to their phone and the world just goes by. The song is aimed at everyone, we need to wake up and face the truth that we a wasting our time sitting on our phones when outside the world still goes on.
