  • Hello, this is Crown

  • Today I'll be introducing 'We Don't Talk Anymore' by Charlie Puth

  • Welcome to Crown's Music Spotlight

  • Previously we introduced 'Blank Space' by Taylor Swift

  • and today I'll be doing my favorite one

  • We Don't Talk Anymore by Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez

  • Our impression of Charlie Puth is probably

  • the song See You Again that made him famous, but actually

  • Sing it! Sing it!

  • Sing it? Okay

  • And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again~

  • Woot!

  • Hahahaha I'm embarrassed

  • But actually my favorite is the song we're introducing today

  • I even set it as my ringtone

  • When I first heard the song, I was attracted by its playful and lively melody

  • Although the tropical tone of music sounds happy

  • the lyrics are totally opposite

  • It's about a painful period of time a couple goes through after breakup

  • The song seems relatively easy

  • but I'll still pick some lyrics to do the explanation and analysis

  • So let's enjoy the charm of the song together!

  • The translation here is: we're not as intimate as before

  • 'used to' means 'something happened habitually or what one did before'

  • 'like we used to do' refers to 'what we've done together before'

  • or 'the happiness we've shared before'

  • The translation here is: 'what was everything for?'

  • 'it' refers to the 'talk' and 'love' mentioned previously

  • and so 'all of it' stands for 'the time we once poured our hearts out and the love we shared'

  • 'What was those for? Because after all we find out nothing"

  • It means that 'after so long I can't help but think why I can't let go'

  • The 'cause' here is the informal way of 'because'

  • which also can be 'cuz' (or cos)

  • 'All this time' means 'the long time everything has been'

  • 'move on' means 'to let go and go forward'

  • The transition here is: 'just like you leaving me is so easy'

  • 'Just the way' may remind you guys

  • of 'Just the Way You Are' by Bruno Mars

  • Hey, sing it, sing it!

  • Again?

  • Yeah sing it

  • Cause you're amazing, just the way you are~

  • The meaning's the same, which is 'just like...'

  • 'You did so easily' is 'it's very easy for you to do this'

  • The translation of this is: 'whether he is holding you tight or not'

  • 'holding you' means 'to embrace you in arms'

  • and 'holding onto you' is more like 'clasping tightly'

  • an idea of 'being stick to each other and won't let go'

  • The sentence means that 'from time to time I would think'

  • If you translate 'every now and then' directly, it would be like 'every that time; every present time'

  • So it refers to 'From time to time'

  • The translation of this part is: 'I'm soaked in love, but I should have seen it clearly that your love is just a game'

  • The song is actually pretty easy

  • The hardest word is probably 'overdose' right here

  • 'Over' refers to 'excessively,' and 'dose' is the amount of medicine

  • This word is often used to describe the situation when having too much amount of medicine or drugs

  • In the lyrics, love is symbolized as drugs

  • Because you're so deep in love and happiness

  • that you don't know it's all just a game

  • The lyrics here mean: "I can't wipe your picture out from my brain"

  • Because it's hard to forget the ex

  • the picture of him/her keeps popping up

  • The tempo of the song is pretty fast, so some words have to be shorter

  • Like 'out of' becomes 'outta'

  • In the lyrics, there's also words like kinda, wanna, shoulda...
