Lyrics to "Understand" song by "Shawn Mendes"

Am I asking all these questions for nothing
I'm wondering if anyone's there
And I really need to make a confession
I hate to say that I'm a little bit scaredBut I've been on this train too long
People getting off and on
Praying that I don't forget where I belong
And every time I ask myselfAm I turning into someone else?
I'm praying that I don't forget just who I am
I really wanna understand
I just wanna understandI'm callin' all my friends after midnight, yeah
To remind 'em that I'll always be there for them
It gets lonely when there's no one to talk to
But it's good to know that somebody cares'Cause I've been on this train too long
People gettin' off and on
I'm prayin' that I don't forget where I belong
And every time I ask myselfAm I turnin' into someone else?
I'm prayin' that I don't forget just who I am
I really wanna understand
I just wanna understand'Cause we all get lost sometimes (yeah yeah)
We all get lost sometimes
We don't leave your heart behind (no, yeah)
We all get lost sometimesI really wanna understand
I just wanna understandNow I just need to, I need to understand
I really wanna understand oh who I amWhen you wake up, your whole world is flipped
Is just different, and you gotta, you know, you gotta
You gotta go with it and
That's just simply growing up
And now I see it in a negative way
You have to see it as it has been giving to you
I mean, as much as time it's gonna be crazy
You're gonna feel like that's where we're supposed to be
You're not gonna feel out of place anymore
You're gonna feel that's where you're meant to be
You don't have to pretend that it's easy all the time
You just let it go and
And grow with it, and you can't hold on
To the old you, or the old this or the old that
Because, you know, you change
And it's not changing in a bad way
It's just changing because that's what happens in life
You grow up, everyone moves on
You're just learning
You stay true to yourself
Changing isn't a bad thing and it never was
But at the end of the day you know, you're the same person
And, and where your heart is, that doesn't changeAnd every time I ask myself
Am I turning into someone else?
And I just pray to God that I'm still who I am
I really wanna understand
I just gotta understand yeah yeahNow I just need to, I need to understand
I really wanna understand oh who I am

Shawn Peter Raul Mendes (born August 8, 1998 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Since the release of his self-titled "The Shawn Mendes EP" and his debut single "Life of the Party", he has been gaining mainstream success as a singer-songwriter and touring artist.

Mendes was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was raised in Pickering, a suburb of the city. He is the son of Karen, a real estate agent, and Manuel Mendes, a businessman. His father is of Portuguese descent (from a family from Lagos), while his mother is English.

He first started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and picked up millions of views and followers in a matter of months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in January 2014, bringing him to Island Records where he eventually signed and released his first single "Life of the Party" in June 2014. He is the youngest artist to debut in the top 25 with a debut song on the Billboard Hot 100, making to number 24 for the week ending July 12, 2014 at 15 years, 11 months and 4 days of age.

Prior to his signing, Mendes toured as a member of the MagCon Tour alongside other young artists and social media sensations such as Nash Grier, Cameron Dallas, Jack & Jack, and more. Mendes was also on a nationwide tour with Austin Mahone as an opening act and released his debut major label EP in July, with a debut album due out later in 2014. He won the Teen Choice award in 2014 for Webstar in Music. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
