SONG OF THE WEEK: Attention by Charlie Puth

Our Song of the Week is ‘Attention by Charlie Puth’

We all had that ex, you know the one that tried everything to get your attention even after the relationship hit the rocks and it was clear that a game was being played here.

The most crass example of a mind-game in a post-breakup scenario is that of your ex conspicuously dangling their new rebound relationship in front of your face or even worse an ex who either can’t override their own pride or shame may have difficulty contacting you directly, and might seek to reach out via mutual acquaintances. How do you react in a situation like this? What do you do in order to safeguard your feelings? Well, since going back to your attention- seeking ex isn’t an option. Why don’t you listen to our song of the week “Attention” and probably play it out loud for your ex to hear if (s)he happens to leave next door.

“Attention” is the title of the new single from Charlie Puth’s upcoming sophomore album and it’s a hot and groovy track. In this song, Charlie expresses his encounters with an ex-girlfriend who’s trying to tempt him to come back to her by playing with his emotions, though he knows she is just looking for attention and isn’t interested in a permanent relationship.

Lyrics Review of Attention by Charlie Puth

Verse 1
You’ve been runnin’ round, runnin’ round, runnin’ round Throwin’ that dirt all on my name
‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d call you up
You’ve been going round, going round, going round
Every party in LA
‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d be at one

What is the easiest way to get the attention of somebody? Talk trash about them behind their back! That’s exactly what this girl did running around LA. So Charlie had to call her up. She was going to all the parties in LA hoping to bump into Charlie. So we can decide that the relationship has already ended in the light of the singer realizing that she was just using him

I know that dress is karma, perfume regret
You got me thinking ’bout when you were mine (Ohh)
And now I’m all up on ya, what you expect
But you’re not coming home with me tonight

So the Charlie’s s ex girlfriend in the song is living a life of regret and she reeks of guilt and shame. There is so much more that Karma has in store for her but she has managed to get Charlie’s attention, too bad he doesn’t want her anymore…


You just want attention
You don’t want my heart
Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new
Yeah, you just want attention
I knew from the start
You’re just making sure I’m never gettin’ over you (Ohh)

Charlie clearly knows what game she is playing and how hard she is trying to remain a significant figure in his life but change is constant…

Verse 2
You’ve been runnin’ round, runnin’ round, runnin’ round Throwing that dirt all on my name
‘Cause you knew that I, knew that I, knew that I’d call you up
Baby, now that we’re, now that we’re, now that we’re
Right here standing face to face
You already know, already know, already know that you won

Verse 2 is pretty similar to verse 1 except that Charlie is saying now that he has met her up in person (after all the dirt thrown around), he already regrets the decision. Because it feels as if she has won the game. But he is not going back to a relationship with her. He wants no part of her in his life. But looks as if she has some strong grip on him as well

However, “Attention” draws to an end after the chorus repeats for a few more times with a refrain. And we are hooked with this track.
