"Feel It Twice" is the eighth track from Camila Cabello's sophomore studio album, Romance, released on December 6, 2019. Written by Cabello with Louis Bell, Adam Feeney, Tommy Paxton Beesley and Matthew Tavares, and produced by the latter with Frank Dukes, the song is about rejecting a former lover.[1]

In "Feel It Twice", Cabello sympathizes with an old flame who has finally realized he has feelings for her. The topic of realizing feelings too late is also touched on in album-mate "Should've Said It". Both tracks are about the same person, penned during the first week of the Romance sessions.

Background Edit

Cabello explained the song's content in a "Romance: Track By Track":

This person had been my friend and we were really, really close and when he confessed that he had feelings for me, things kind of got awkward because we weren’t together. I felt like I was hurting him and I felt weird because it felt like we were kind of drifting away as friends.[2]

Two days before the song was released alongside Romance, Cabello took to her social media to share a snippet of the song and supplemental artwork.[3]

Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
Oh

[Verse 1]
Oh, I'm scared if I look in your eyes, I might see your soul
I know love is the loneliest place when you fall alone

[Pre-Chorus]
Sitting by the phone, holding onto hope
Spending all night wondering why you let me go (You let me go)
I wish you had felt how you're feeling two years ago
Oh, nah

[Chorus]
Hurts me to hurt you, baby
Lying awake and everything has changed
Keeping our distance lately
Kills me to kill you when I tell you
That I felt it once, I can't feel it twice
It's more than I can take, baby
Hurts me to tell you I don't feel the same

[Verse 2]
I can feel you still staring at me when I look away
Can't imagine the pain that you feel when I kiss his face

[Pre-Chorus]
That's when you said
"How can I be your friend when I know the way you taste?
It's almost 2 AM and I can't ask you to stay"
I don't know what's worse, getting broken or making it break
Oh, ah

[Chorus]
Hurts me to hurt you, baby
Lying awake and everything has changed
Keeping our distance lately
Kills me to kill you when I tell you
That I felt it once, I can't feel it twice
It's more than I can take, baby
Hurts me to tell you I don't feel the same

[Chorus]
Hurts me to hurt you, babe
Feels like there's nothing that I can say
Hurts me to hurt you, babe
Kills me I have to walk away
'Cause I felt it once, I can't feel it twice
It's more than I can take, baby
Hurts me to tell you I don't feel the same

[Outro]
The same, oh yeah
The same, oh
The same, oh yeah, oh yeah
The same
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
