Shawn Mendes takes on more mature sound with “In my blood”

Shawn Mendes released a new single, mature pop rock anthem “In my blood”.
The Kings of Leon-inspired track, co-written with Teddy Geiger, Scott Harris and Geoff Warburton, is very personal for Shawn. It features a touching chorus and lyrics about his secret battle with anxiety and insecurity.
About the song, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter said: “It’s the closest song to my heart that I’ve written”.
“In my blood” is expected to appear on Mendes’ next album, which remains untitled and is due soon. It will be the follow-up to 2016’s “Illuminate”, which debuted at No. 1 and produced three hits: “Treat you better“, “Mercy” and “There’s nothing holdin’ me back“.

Lyrics:

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood

Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing
I’m overwhelmed and insecure, give me something
I could take to ease my mind slowly
Just have a drink and you’ll feel better
Just take her home and you’ll feel better
Keep telling me that it gets better
Does it ever?

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough
Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood

Looking through my phone again feeling anxious
Afraid to be alone again, I hate this
I’m trying to find a way to chill, can’t breathe, oh
Is there somebody who could…

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
No medicine is strong enough
Someone help me
I’m crawling in my skin
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood

I need somebody now
I need somebody now
Someone to help me out
I need somebody now

Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can’t
It isn’t in my blood

It isn’t in my blood
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn’t in my blood
I need somebody now
It isn’t in my blood
