Trivia

Wist je dat? Deze track begint met een sample van de bekende quote van RuPaul: "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gon' love somebody else? Can I get a amen in here?" Deze uitspraak was al tientallen keren te horen in het programma RuPaul's Drag Race. Deze specifieke sample is afkomstig uit aflevering 9 (Frock The Vote) van seizoen 4 uit 2012.

Vlak na de release was op het officiële YouTubekanaal van Sam Smith een versie van deze track te vinden met een alternatief intro. Deze versie begon met een sample uit de documentaire Paris Is Burning, een film uit 1990 over de Afro-Amerikaanse en Latino LHBTQIA+-gemeenschap in het New York van eind jaren 80. De tekst "Touch this skin, darling. Touch this skin, honey, touch all of this skin" werd gezegd door de 23-jarige transvrouw Venus Xtravaganza (1965-1988), die gedurende de opnames van deze film het slachtoffer werd van moord. Later werd deze lyric video vervangen door de track met gewone intro met een tekst van RuPaul.

Songtekst

If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gon' love somebody else? Can I get a amen in here?

You gotta, you gotta ask me
Yeah, I'm going to the party
But I'm not going to make friends
I need a lover

You gotta, you gotta ask me
Yeah, I'm going to the party
But I'm not going to make friends
I need a lover

Everybody's looking for somebody
For somebody to take home
I'm not the exception
I'm a blessing of a body to love on

If you want it bad tonight
Come by me and drop a line
Put your aura into mine
Don't be scared if you like it
I could fill you up with life
I could ease your appetite
Know you've never been this high
Don't be scared if you like it

Cause I'm not here to make friends
No, I'm not here to make friends, yeah
Cause I'm not here to make friends
I need a lover (I need a lover)

Thirty almost got me
And I'm so over love songs, yeah

So if you want it bad tonight
Come by me and drop a line
Know you've never been this high
Don't be scared if you like it

Cause I'm not here to make friends
