Shameless” is a song by Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. It was released as one of the double lead singles off her second solo album Romance on September 5, 2019 through Epic Records and Syco Music, alongside “Liar“. Written by Camila Cabello, Alexandra Tamposi, Andrew Wotman, Jonathan Bellion, Jordan Johnson and Stefan Johnson and produced by Watt and The Monsters and the Strangerz. The music video was directed by Henry Scholfield in Los Angeles and was released on the same day on YouTube. As of September 2019, it has 30 million streams on Spotify.

 

 

But “Shameless,” in particular, is a song she feels very “emotionally connected to”: “I was on such an emotional peak that I was not self-conscious at all,” Cabello said of the song’s recording session. “I was just like, I don’t even care. I’m like high off of this feeling. I think that’s why it was so easy to write because I wasn’t thinking, I wasn’t trying, I was just feeling.”

On the massive “Shameless,” Cabello sings about an unfulfilled crush. The track starts out with just an alluring, subtle guitar riff before opening up to a dark synth sound before the second verse. “I need you more than I want ya,” she sings on the chorus. In the video, Cabello confesses her sins to a priest, watches her crush talk to another girl at a party and appears to be running from something or someone down a dark city street.

 

Camila Cabello shared that her two new songs, “Shameless” and “Liar,” are from her new project, “Romance.”
“Listening back to the songs I’ve written for this album so far and I just burst into sobs,” she tweeted. “It feels really surreal and powerful that I can listen back to my life over the past year – I always get so insecure during the process and feel so much self doubt, but listening back I just feel like… at the very least, I hear my (expletive) soul in these songs.”

Shameless – Camila Cabello

[Verse 1]
Don’t speak, no, don’t try
It’s been a secret for the longest time
Don’t run (Oh), no, don’t hide
Been running from it for the longest time

[Pre-Chorus]
So many mornings I woke up confused
In my dreams, I do anything I want to you
My emotions are naked, they’re taking me out of my mind

[Chorus]
Right now, I’m shameless
Screamin’ my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to
Show me you’re shameless
Write it on my neck, why don’t ya?
And I won’t erase it
I need you more than I want to
I need you more than I want to

[Post-Chorus]
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now

 

 

[Verse 2]
So we’re there, now it’s real
Now that you have me, do you want me still?
My kisses are history, they go back a long time, uh
And I’m tired of loving somebody that’s not mine, no

[Pre-Chorus]
So many mornings I woke up confused
In my dreams, I do anything I want to you
My emotions are naked, they’re taking me out of my mind (Mind)

[Chorus]
Right now, I’m shameless
Screamin’ my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to
Show me you’re shameless
Write it on my neck, why don’t ya?
And I won’t erase it
I need you more than I want to
I need you more than I want to

[Post-Chorus]
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now

[Bridge]
Distance, inches in between us
I want you to give in, I want you to give in
Weakness, tension in between us
I just wanna give in
And I don’t care if I’m forgiven

 

 

[Chorus]
Right now, I’m shameless
Screamin’ my lungs out for ya
Not afraid to face it
I need you more than I want to
Need you more than I want to
Show me you’re shameless
Write it on my neck, why don’t ya?
And I won’t erase it
I need you more than I want to
I need you more than I want to

[Post-Chorus]
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
No-oh, uh-uh, don’t wanna do this now
