“Feel It Twice” by Camila Cabello
In “Feel It Twice”, Camila Cabello seems to be addressing an ex-boyfriend. It is revealed that this individual ‘let her go’, as in dumped her. But apparently he has come to regret this decision he made “two years ago” and now wants to get back with her. However, she is not privy to “feel it twice”, as in give her heart to this person once more just to be disappointment yet again. But this is not to say that she enjoys being separated from him. In fact a contrary sentiment is expressed, with the singer being disturbed by the anguish he is experiencing due to his loneliness and her moving on to a new man.
Or another way of looking at it is that she has restricted the addressee to the friend zone. However, due to the previous romantic nature of their relationship, as well as those type of emotions still being present, it doesn’t seem like the two of them just being friends is a realistic option. So now they are drifting apart, which is another factor that is making Camila upset.
So this song has been described as the singer being “stuck in a love triangle”, which sounds like a pretty accurate description. She has broken up with one guy and moved onto another. And whereas she doesn’t want to go back to her ex, it has nothing to do with her feelings for him personally as she is obviously, to some degree, still in love with him. Rather it is this perceived strong possibility of him misusing her love, as he had done in the past, which has made her decide to permanently move on.
