“Never Be The Same” begins ominously and slowly grows to include drum beats, and eventually, Cabello’s highly-autotuned vocals, and while the first few seconds of the track don’t let on how romantic it winds up being, it’s actually rather sweet. Despite namedropping morphine, nicotine and even heroin (or heroine, as she pronounces it), the poppy tune is fairly family friendly, and it sounds like it could easily have fit on an early Fifth Harmony record. By the end, “Never Be The Same” has hooked you in just enough that you want a little bit more (like many of the substances she mentions), and it’s easy to hit replay. Chances are this is the last big pop song of 2017

Camila Cabello has released the next song off her upcoming debut album Camila, on the first day of pre-sale. “Never Be The Same” is the first real hint of a ballad off the new record, and comes as an instant-grat track with every pre-sale purchase from (Dec. 7), alongside the provocative “Real Friends.”

[Verse 1]
Something must’ve gone wrong in my brain
Got your chemicals all in my veins
Feeling all the highs, feeling all the pain
Let go on the wheel, it’s the bullet lane
Now I’m seeing red, not thinking straight
Blurring all the lines, you intoxicate me

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroin, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, you’re all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

[Verse 2]
Sneaking in L.A. when the lights are low
Off of one touch I could overdose
You said, “stop playing it safe
Girl, I wanna see you lose control”

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like nicotine, heroin, morphine
Suddenly, I’m a fiend and you’re all I need
All I need, yeah, you’re all I need

[Chorus]
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never be the same
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never ever, ever be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same
I’ll never be the same

[Bridge]
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head (I blame)
You’re in my blood, you’re in my veins, you’re in my head

[Chorus]
I’m saying it’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame (you’re to blame)
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never be the same (I’ll never be the)
It’s you, babe
And I’m a sucker for the way that you move, babe
And I could try to run, but it would be useless
You’re to blame
Just one hit of you, I knew I’ll never ever, ever be the same
