Call Out My Name Rewrite (The Weeknd)

April 16, 2021

FREE WRITING

2
You put me together 
You picked up the pieces of my heart
You gave me comfort
But I couldn’t fall in love with you

You held me up, you held me up high
You made sure I wouldn’t fall again
But it was too much, it was too much
I played with your heart and you got hurt

I called out your name
I called out your name and you came right away babe
But you just can’t stay
No, you just can’t stay here with me for a lifetime
I just can’t wait
No, I just can’t wait ‘til you fall out of love
But, I called out your name
I called out your name and you wanted to stay
Oh, you wanted to stay

I know you felt something for me, I did too
But it wasn’t in the same way, oh, babe
You were just another rebound
Though I wish I could have
Loved you so proud like you did 

You held me up, you held me up high
You made sure I wouldn’t fall again
But it was too much, it was too much
I played with your heart and you got hurt

I called out your name
I called out your name and you came right away babe
But you just can’t stay
No, you just can’t stay here with me for a lifetime
I just can’t wait
No, I just can’t wait ‘til you fall out of love
But, I called out your name
I called out your name and you wanted to stay
Oh, you wanted to stay
I've been writing a lot of rewrites the past couple of days but I have a few originals I'm working on right now so hopefully, I can finish them up and then publish them soon. I hope you're having a good day :)

    RE: Aww of course!! Yay and aww thank youuu! You are so so sweet too! And yay can’t wait to hear them!
    Ohhh that’s so cool and aww of course! No, I don’t think it skipped around at all. And even if it did in a sense, I think that’s what art is, the beauty of our tangled thoughts and stuff!

    Ooh ok so I searched up the song to see which parts you had written completely on your own and which parts were the same (cause idk exactly what a rewrite is haha- is it the song but from the other point of view? cause if so wow you do an amazing job!!) The second stanza is the most professional sounding song like and again, your first stanza just does such a good job of kind of foreshadowing everything you're going to talk about! Again, your lyrics just have such a great rhythm behind them and tbh I actually kind of started singing this out loud- it's just so tragically sweet!

    RE: Awwww thank you so so much Lizzie! Your comment was so sweet, I’m so glad it was so transportive!
    Aww of course, I’m so glad! Aww thank you, likewise! <3 And nooo, really? Your voice still sounded so pretty- oh wow I can’t wait to hear your non-cold voice then! Of course :) Hope you’re having a great day!!
