Zayn Malik – PillowTalk lyrics

[Verse 1]
Climb on board
We'll go slow and high tempo
Light and dark
Hold me hard and mellow


[Pre-Chorus]
I'm seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, 'body but me, 'body but us
Bodies together

I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you

I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you

[Chorus]
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking you, and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone


[Verse 2]
Pillow talk
My enemy, my ally
Prisoners
Then we're free, it's a thin line

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, 'body but me, 'body but us
Bodies together
I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you
I'd love to hold you close, tonight and always
I'd love to wake up next to you

[Chorus]
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior

A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

[Bridge]
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone

[Chorus]
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
Be in the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking you, and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

    Sounds like this is one of those love hate relationships. They fight all the time but still have sex so like, frenemies with benefits xd jk. He keeps saying "I'd love to" which means he wants to do these things but something/ someone is getting in the way, probably the girl he wants to do these things with. "Paradise and war zone", good sex but bad fights (not meaning anything to be inappropriate btw).

    For me, it's just simply enjoying the pleasure of having sex with his partner. Much like making the bed (or where ever they're doing it) as the an arena of love. I suppose the "I'd love to" line there is because the girl is still don't belong to him at the moment, somehow he's trying to tell her that he'd love to do all those things with her.

    To me it's about the fight for control during sex and also in the relationship; he wants to have her in every way possible, keep her close and be with her always. They'll have every kind of sex because he knows that it binds her to him, and she wants to lose control but she fights it because she fears giving herself completely in case he hurts her. Thin line between pain and pleasure (s&m) and between love and hate.

    It sounds like the guy loves his women with all his heart but wants to be able to act on his uncontrollable need to enjoy not just his women but other women in there bed. Knowing that if done with complete respect for boundaries that it could be great but also knowing if he steps over that thin line it could be hell.
