Lauv’s New Song ‘Feelings’ Is About Unrequited Love

Lauv has been on a roll recently. He’s been churning out successful songs nonstop it seems. Ever since he teased on Instagram that more music was coming, he has not disappointed. We ended up getting Drugs and the Internet, Fuck I’m Lonely and now Feelings.

The singer has a talent of writing songs that are so relatable, they can end up making you cry. That’s what we can say about the new song Feelings. While listening to it, you’re bound to think about the love you never got back. If sad love songs are your thing, Lauv is the perfect singer for you.

Relatable Lyrics of Feelings Talk About Unrequited Love

He sings from the heart and it’s apparent in each of his lyrics. Just take a look at some of the lyrics from Feelings:

Is my love too much?
Is it just enough for you, for you?
‘Cause it’s getting late, would you like to stay
‘Cause I’m bad at reading signs

Isn’t that relatable?

Lauv doesn’t stop here. He further uses his melodic voice to make us remember all the times we never got our crush to like us back:

But I, I wanna do whatever you wanna do
If you wanted to, girl, we could cross that line
Know we’ve been friends
And love only knows broken ends
That’s what you said but girl let me change your mind

It’s almost as if we’re fighting a war in our minds. We know the person we like doesn’t feel the same way about us. It’s a constant struggle of respecting their wishes or to confess the deep love you have for them.

But I feel ’em in my chest
A tiny war within
But when I pull you closer
Girl, I can’t explain

It indeed can’t be explained. That’s the painful beauty about love. It hurts but you can’t do anything about it:

And I know, and I know that it hurts sometimes
That it hurts sometimes when I’m with you

Lauv, real name Ari Staprans Leff, never fails to invoke the deepest emotions in his listeners. The singer shares the inspiration behind his song:

I wrote “feelings” when I unexpectedly fell madly in love w/ someone and I was trying to convince them to dive in with me. I’m single now but the song will forever remind me of the most in love I’ve ever felt.

Well, love hurts. Unrequited love all the more so. But hey at least we have Lauv to put our feelings into addictive and melodic songs.
