Meaning of the Lyrics “Look At Her Now”
In an interview with KIIS FM, Selena Gomez discussed some of the goals she had in mind for her most recent two singles. Yes, as in “Lose You to Love Me,” I will share everything I felt. But I’m happy because this is where [Look at Her Now] has led me. selener meaning And how I feel about those two songs is simply: the end of that period in my life. In “Lose You to Love Me,” which she wrote about a year ago, she talks about the pain she was going through. “Look At Her Now,” which is a sequel to that song, shows how she’s doing right now.
Selena Gomez’s “Look At Her Now” is an autobiographical healing song with the lyrics “She knows she’ll find love.” Due to the song’s third-person narrative, hindsight reveals some objectivity. As she reviews the excruciating times that came after her separation with her past beau, she is appreciative for the self-awareness that is occurred in her, and that she at long last feels prepared to close that troublesome part of her life.
Verse 1: They fell in love one summer.
They were a little too wild for each other. Shiny ’til it wasn’t. Feels good ’til it doesn’t. Her first real lover. Hers too ’til he had another. Oh, God, when she found out. Although Selena and her boyfriend loved being together, it was hard to tell if the “wildness” and intensity of one was good for the other. The relationship became painful quickly. Even though they were first lovers, he left her before she did, which felt like a betrayal.
Pre-Chorus Although she was heartbroken at losing a relationship with someone she loved, she is now “glad she dodged a bullet.” Although it took her a few years to process her emotions, she is now “glad she dodged a bullet.” She will not spend her life with him because he hurt her, which she now realizes is better. She “took a few years” to recover, but she is now stronger, wiser, and has endured the pain.
Verse 2: “Fast nights that got him That new life was his problem”
Although this verse is more open-ended and vague, likely to give Selena some privacy regarding her past, this section appears to look back to when they were together. selener meaning However, this is not to say that she was perfect; he still regrets that moment. “That night Wasn’t wrong, wasn’t right, yeah What a thing to be human Made her more of a woman.” She “still regrets” a particular night in particular. She believes that whatever she did that evening was neither good nor bad; rather, it was not the best choice. It could be that she said something she didn’t want to say or that it has to do with some kind of emotional or physical intimacy with her ex-boyfriend. She looks at the situation objectively and reminds herself that it only means that she is human and that her struggles as a result of that relationship “made her more of a woman.” Instead of beating herself up, she does so.
Bridge She knows she will only find love if she wants it.
She knows she will find love up and down. Look at her now and watch her go. Now that she is healthy and healed, she knows she will “find love” with the right person when the time is right. The expression “if she wants it” most likely refers to a person’s decision between remaining single or finding love. She reminds herself that she will get closer to finding love as she continues to move into a better emotional state. She does appear to want to find that romantic love.
The deeper meaning of Selena Gomez’s “Look At Her Now” The song encourages us to cheer for Selena and celebrate her healing. I don’t think she just wants us to celebrate her breakthrough based on what she has said about the song. We are supposed to celebrate everyone who has overcome heartbreak, which is a wonderful thing to do.
