"Call Me, Maybe" as written by Carly Rae Jepsen, Joshua Keeler Ramsay and Tavish Joseph Crowe....
I threw a wish in the well
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you as it fell
And now you're in my way
I trade my soul for a wish
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holdin'
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blownin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
It's hard to look right
At you, baby
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
And all the other boys
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me, maybe

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all
But still, you're in my way
I beg and follow and steal
Have foresight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it
But it's in my way

Your stare was holdin'
Ripped jeans, skin was showin'
Hot night, wind was blownin'
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
It's hard to look right
At you, baby
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
And all the other boys
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me, maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so, so bad

It's hard to look right
At you baby
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
Hey, I just met you
And this crazy
But here's my number
So call me, maybe
And all the other boys
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me, maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so, so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me, maybe

    Song MeaningShe just met the boy and she doesnt really know him, but she doesnt care. She doesnt care about all the other boys thats chasing her, she's just saying "So call me maybe?" She's just taking a chance,being bold, and its like love at first sight, she knows he's who she wants.
    This song is really catchy!

    General Commenti really think carly is trying to connect to her audience by using the boy as a synechdoche to all the problems in the world, and asking him to call her will satisfy her puny life on earth

    General Commentwhat does that part mean when she says"I threw a wish in the well Don't ask me, I'll never tell I looked to you as it fell And now your in my way
    I trade my soul for a wish
    Pennies and dimes for a kiss
    I wasn't looking for this
    But now your in my way"?????????????

    General CommentI love how in the music video she tries so hard for him to notice her and when he finally does he's more interested in her guitarist than her. Other than that, cute song, I love it! <3
