Pop Star Weeknd is fine and all, but we don’t listen to the Weeknd for that. We listen to the Weeknd because he speaks to our worst tendencies, the grimiest things we do, say, and think about sex, relationships, and heartache. We fell in love with Mixtape Weeknd because at, our core, we’re all kind of the worst and he’s unafraid to be the bad guy and say it loud and proud. The Weeknd we want is the Weeknd of old, like on “Wasted Times,” being equal parts spiteful, full of himself, and weak enough to tell an ex, “I hope you know this dick is still an option.”

The new surprise Weeknd project My Dear Melancholy is the Toronto singer’s slight return to the guts and grit that built him…. “Wasted Times” kicks off with the singer trashed in bed with a hookup he seems bored of and snaps back to the memory of an ex, how things ended badly, but he always knew what her intentions were and where he stood with her.

While the majority of The Weeknd’s six-track album My Dear Melancholy seems to be focused on his most recent ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez and his heartbreak over her, The Weeknd devoted one track to his other ex, Bella Hadid. The one he almost reconciled with in November and could still—if these lyrics hint anything!

The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye) just released a new EP called My Dear Melancholy, and it’s chock full of lyrics ripe for dissection. Listeners have already concluded that one song, “Call Out My Name,” is about Abel’s ex Selena Gomez. But that’s not all! There’s another theory floating around the interwebs that “Wasted Times” is about his other very famous ex, Bella Hadid.

[Verse 1]
Wasted times I spent with someone else
She wasn’t even half of you
Reminiscin’ how you felt
Reminiscin’ how you felt
And even though you put my life through hell
I can’t seem to forget ’bout you, ’bout you
I want you to myself

[Chorus]
And now I’m askin’, who do you belong to now?
Who you give that love to now?
Who you pullin’ up on?
Who you gettin’ sprung for now?
And what they got that I ain’t got? ‘Cause I got a lot
Don’t make me run up on ’em, got me blowin’ up their spot
‘Cause I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings anyway
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings

[Verse 2]
Catchin’ feelings
These girls only want you when you’re winnin’ (winnin’)
But you’ve been with me from the beginnin’ (ooh, yeah, yeah)
And I know right now that we’re not talkin’ (not talkin’)
I hope you know this dick is still an option
‘Cause I’ll beat it up (I’ll beat it up, yeah)
I’ll take my time to learn the way your body functions
You were equestrian, so ride it like a champion (I’ll beat it)
This sex will get you high without no other substance

[Chorus]
So who do you belong to now? (Who do you belong to now?)
Who you give that love to now? (Who you give that love to now?)
Who you pullin’ up on?
Who you gettin’ sprung for now? (Who you gettin’ sprung for now?)
And what they got that I ain’t got? ‘Cause I got a lot (I got a lot)
Don’t make me run up on ’em, got me blowin’ up their spot (blowin’ up their spot)
‘Cause I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings anyway
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings (feelings)

[Bridge]
Catchin’ feelings
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings
Catchin’ fee-fee-fee-fee
Feelings
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings
I ain’t got no business catchin’ feelings
Catchin’ fee-fee-fee-fee

[Outro]
Wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
If you ain’t layin’ next to me
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna wake up
If you ain’t layin’ next to me-e-e
On me, me, on me, oh, I
On me, on me, on me
