this song is exactly what being a lonely hopeless romantic feels like his face is so monotone yet his voice has more emotion and feelings than ever I think I found my song. I've never been in love either, and never been in a romantic relationship. I am not afraid of letting people know me, but whenever they tell me they like me, I can't like them back. I can't commit. And I actually like being single. However, there are still times when I wonder when it will be the time for me to experience being in love. When this song came out I didn’t realize I was aromantic (also asexual, now I know), but I like romance like watching the romance in other people and in fiction. And I remember thinking that I related so much but that I kinda loved people watching and living vicariously through them and then going back to my reality. I feel seen idk haha ❤️ Not only does Conan make masterpieces but makes songs that are relatable. I love this song because, if we remember Crush Culture, it really sounds like a character growth. It's a big change from "I don't wanna participate in your game of manipulation (crush)
And no, I don't want your sympathy, all this love is suffocating
Just let me be sad and lonely" to, "I want to feel all that love and emotion, be that attached to the person I'm holding." He went from hatred for love to admitting that, in truth, he actually wants to feel it, too. By being at peace with it, he can now feel happy for other people who have already found what he looks for, even if he himself is still waiting instead of saying mean things about love.

(BTW i know absolutely nothing of his life or personality, this is just the vibes that the two songs gave me lol)
Conan Gray is making everyone's life better with his songs and All his songs always Peirce through people's hearts Y’all Conan’s literally a musical genius! The build up is to die for, the chorus gives me goosebumps, the bridge is beautiful, and overall this song is just soooo relatable!!!💙💙💙

That wasn’t funny but she laughed so hard she almost cried
They’re counting months they’ve been together almost forty-nine
He’s making fun of how she acted around the holidays
She wears a ring but they tell people that they’re not engaged

They met in class for metaphysical philosophy
He tells his friends I like her cause she’s so much smarter than me
They’re having talks about their futures until 4 a.m.
And I’m happy for them (I’m happy for them)

But I wanna feel all that love and emotion
Be that attached to the person I’m holding
Someday I’ll be fallin’ without caution
But for now I’m only people watching

I’m only looking just to live through you vicariously
I’ve never really been in love, not seriously
I had a dream about a house behind a picket fence
Next one I choose to trust I hope I use some common sense

But I cut people out like tags on my clothing
I end up all alone but I still keep hoping

I wanna feel all that love and emotion
Be that attached to the person I’m holding
Someday I’ll be fallin’ without caution
But for now I’m only people watching

Cut people out like tags on my clothing
I end up all alone but I still keep hoping
I won’t be scared to let someone know me
Life feels so monotone but I still keep hoping
Cut people out like tags on my clothing
I end up all alone but I still keep hoping
I won’t be scared to let someone know me
Life feels so monotone but I still keep hoping

(I feel love emotion)

I wanna feel all that love and emotion
Be that attached to the person I’m holding
Someday I’ll be fallin’ without caution
But for now I’m only people watching

This song is about someone who's emotionally unavailable, but still longing for the deep emotional attachment that other people experienced. :(

I never thought I'd miss having a crush, I became so bitter and even felt disgusted at the sight of seeing people in love...now I realize that deep down I only wanted to "feel all that love and emotion"

Underrated song, I love when people write songs like these because they’re realistic and people can relate

this is exactly how a single, hopeless romantic, coffee barista, who works on valentines day, feels like.

As a demiromantic person this song just hits . Cause a part of me knows it's rare that i will feel romantic attraction and yet a part of me still wants it and it hurts a little hearing my friends talk about relationships and crushes when i know i just don't and will rarely ever feel how giddy and happy they are.

the lyrics really are relatable. "I wanna feel all the love and emotion, be that attached to that person I'm holding" really hits because I get the feeling of seeing happy couples and feeling bad because all you want is for someone to want you like that. and what makes those other people so much more deserving?

this song scratches an itch, as someone who's accepted that romance will never happen for them, i guess people watching is the only way i can prove that love does exist, especially for others.

He's so underrated. I'm crying. He deserves more recognition. It's so hard to release bops after bops. I love you Conan ♡

I think I found my song. I've never been in love either, and never been in a romantic relationship. I am not afraid of letting people know me, but whenever they tell me they like me, I can't like them back. I can't commit. And I actually like being single. However, there are still times when I wonder when it will be the time for me to experience being in love.

When this song came out I didn’t realize I was aromantic (also asexual, now I know), but I like romance like watching the romance in other people and in fiction. And I remember thinking that I related so much but that I kinda loved people watching and living vicariously through them and then going back to my reality. I feel seen idk haha ❤️

I love this song because, if we remember Crush Culture, it really sounds like a character growth. It's a big change from "I don't wanna participate in your game of manipulation (crush)
And no, I don't want your sympathy, all this love is suffocating
Just let me be sad and lonely" to, "I want to feel all that love and emotion, be that attached to the person I'm holding." He went from hatred for love to admitting that, in truth, he actually wants to feel it, too. By being at peace with it, he can now feel happy for other people who have already found what he looks for, even if he himself is still waiting instead of saying mean things about love.

(BTW i know absolutely nothing of his life or personality, this is just the vibes that the two songs gave me lol)
