In My Blood

Shawn Mendes

In My Blood Lyrics

[Intro]
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

[Verse 1]
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?

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
It isn't in my blood
It isn't in my blood

[Verse 2]
I'm 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...

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
It isn't in my blood
It isn't in my blood

[Bridge]
I need somebody now
I need somebody now
Someone to help me out
I need somebody now

[Pre-Chorus]
Help me, it's like the walls are caving in
Sometimes I feel like giving up
But I just can't

[Chorus]
It isn't in my blood
It isn't in my blood, oh

[Outro]
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

About “In My Blood”

On “In My Blood,” Shawn Mendes takes a heavier and more mature approach production-wise, while still sticking to his acoustic roots in the verses. The day before the release he tweeted a message to his fans saying:

This song is the closest song to my heart that I’ve ever written.

In an interview with Billboard, Mendes explained that the song is about his first experience with anxiety:

The concept of this song is about how it feels [when] you’re about to give up, and then you don’t. That’s the whole payoff in the chorus section…It’s not about when it happens. It’s kind of about something that I think everybody goes through and it’s something that I think people don’t talk about often, especially in music.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    In a tweet Shawn posted the day before he released “In My Blood,” he wrote:

    Just wanted to write this note before the song comes out tonight and say how excited I am for you all to hear it. I know I’ve been pretty quiet during this album process and I just wanted to thank you with all of my heart for being there and supporting me the entire time. This song is the closest song to my heart that I’ve ever written and I Hope you guys love it and all the new music coming your way. I love and appreciate you all so much! Thank you!

  • How close does Mendes connect with the song's lyrical message?

    In an interview with Zane Lowe, Mendes opened up about how the song details with his experiences with anxiety:

    It was kind of something that hit me last year. Growing up, I was a pretty calm kid. I knew people who suffered from anxiety, found it kind of hard to understand, and then when it hits you, you’re like, Oh my god, this is crazy. When I play that song, I go ‘Just so you know I’m okay. The best thing about it is that it’s not all down. The whole reason I wrote the song was to be like, at the very end, ‘It’s not in my blood to do that.’

  • When did Shawn Mendes announce "In My Blood?"

    On March 20, 2018, Mendes posted a picture of the single’s rumored cover art on social media, along with the caption “March 22nd” and a link to pre-save “In My Blood” on Spotify. The dates of “March 22” and “March 23” were posted by Mendes later that day which signified another song was on the way. He announced “Lost In Japan” on Twitter a few hours after the single’s release.

  • Why did Shawn chose "In My Blood" as the first single off his new album?

    While reacting to fan reactions of the song on iHeart Radio, he managed to answer this question:

    For a lot of different reasons, but mainly, I think it’s conceptually the song closest to my heart and it’s the most vulnerable and I just wanted to release something that really meant something to me as my first song.

  • How well did the song do on pop radio during its first day of release?

    On March 22nd, according to Mediabase via HeadLinePlanet, “In My Blood” had received 1,260 pop radio spins by the end of the day. Also, “In My Blood” received 213 spins on hot adult contemporary radio.

  • How is "In My Blood" different from his previous material?

    Mendes broke down the inspiration behind the track in an interview with Billboard. He emphasized that he wanted to showcase his vulnerabilities through more literal and personal lyrics:

    I’m really proud of it. I think, especially, comparing that to all of my other music. I love all of my other songs, but…it was all kind of more vague topics about a relationship, and this is my first time breaking into something that’s more serious and more about me.

  • How was "In My Blood" created?

    Shawn Mendes joined Billboard to share the story behind creating “In My Blood” on an episode of How It Went Down:

  • Is there a "Making Of" video for "In My Blood"
