“Make Me Like You” lyrics


I was fine before I met you,
I was broken but fine,
I was lost and uncertain,
But my heart was still mine

I was free before I met you,
I was broken but free,
All alone in a clear view
But now you are all I see

Hey, wait a minute
No, you can’t do this to me
Hey, wait a minute
No, that’s not fair
Hey, wait a minute
You’re on me like jewelry,
I really like it,
But I’m so scared

Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
This is a feeling I’m not used to
Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you
Ah, ah ah ah ah, ah
Cause now you got me missing you

Something I could get used to,
I could get used this
It’s getting harder to leave it,
Your lips on my lips

Oh, I can’t believe it,
How good it could be
Didn’t want to believe it
But now you are all I see

Hey, wait a minute
No, you can’t do this to me
Hey, wait a minute
No, that’s not fair
Hey, wait a minute
You’re on me like jewelry,
I really like it,
But I’m so scared

Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
This is a feeling I’m not used to
Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you

Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
This is a feeling I’m not used to
Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you

Oh God, thank God that I found you
Oh God, cause now you got me missing you
Oh God, thank God that I found you
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you

Thank God
Thank God that I found you
Oh, now you got me missing you
Now you got me missing you!

Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
This is a feeling I’m not used to
Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you

Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
This is a feeling I’m not used to
Ooh, why’d you have to go and make me like you?
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you

Oh God, thank God that I found you
Oh God, cause now you got me missing you
Oh God, thank God that I found you
I’m so mad at you,
Cause now you got me missing you

What do you think of “Make Me Like You”?


70 thoughts on ““Make Me Like You” Available Now!

  1. Giving me the “real thing” vibes. Remember that video of gwen on the beach during the harajuku lovers tour? This is what that reminds me of! Also totally looks like some of the shots that were taken while promoting her fragrance “L”

    1. That snippet sounds amazing, Everything about the album so far seems so authentic and very inspired. It´s great to see Gwen with this confidence and such a clear creative direction.

  2. It sounds a lot better than maroon 5’s sugar. It really stands on it’s own, the only similarity being the fact that it’s a 80’s inspired song. I’m loving the melody and vocal delivery so far 😀

  3. Its good! I wouldn’t say its great or one of the best things she’s done but I do like it and think it will be a moderate hit 🙂

  4. I like it! It’s fresh and energetic, reminds me of Kylie Minogue (particularly the chorus). I think this has much more hit potential than UTLY! But I can understand lyrically why Gwen would put that out first. Makes more sense in telling her story.
    And those tweets LOLas if it wasn’t super obvious already the song is about Blake ;).
    I hope this song really propels Gwen forward!

  5. I like the sound and energy of the song, I’m not particularly enjoying her thanking God for Blake over and over. I feel like it’s kind of an in your face moment towards Gavin, she has her hands in the album art and single art, like her hands are only there to show she isn’t wearing her ring anymore. The song is ok.

  6. This was amazing! Gwen can do no wrong this will be a hit and I’m so thankful that she thanks God for her gifts even the tough ones! She is perfect and so is this song! And does anyone else notice the duration of the song Misery is there on iTunes, I know we just got a new song and all but could that be a possible next single before the album drops? I guess we will see but I’m soo excited and I’m in love with Make Me Like You!!!❤️❤️

  7. Yes, major Kylie vibes @Rose Marie. I didn’t hear it at first (although I should have, I work in the Museum that cares for Kylie’s costume archive!) but after another listen I totally agree.

    I like the artwork far more than the song. As far as Gwen’s solo material goes, for me personally, the avant garde, 80s pop of L.A.M.B has yet to be beaten. It was just so unusual and super creative and the jaw-dropping visuals blew my mind!

    I’m so happy to see our G come out the other side strong and positive, I wish her all the best with the new solo era! Looking forward to a new suite of glassy mag covers and photoshoots!

  8. I love the artwork, she looks amazing on the cover, but song itself is not great -far from it. It sounds something like Little Mix would be singing at the moment, it’s a nice summer song, but I was hoping something slightly different from Gwen. Also, I really dislike the “oh god/thank god I found you part”.

  9. Where’s the person that was stating that he/she had listened and it was “100% Gavin”?
    Well, listening to it now, it does not sound like she’s having about their relationship, maybe if this was written in 96 when they started dating (LOL).
    Anyways… the jewelery part got me reminding of Luxury, not sure why.

    1. LOL!! That’s why I am skeptical of what people claim to know on the Internet! 100% NOT about Gavin. I’m not sure what her future will be with Blake, but it’s great to see her so positive and happy!

  10. I actually really like this. Her voice is so uniquely Gwen in this which I’ve been missing. Finally a well put together song as a single! I think this will be a great album for her.

  11. Please sign the petition link below for This Is What The Truth Feels Like to be pressed on vinyl. Will be so sad if it’s not because LAMB was on vinyl and sweet escape wasn’t so we can’t have this happen again

  12. The lyrics are hard to understand. Listened to it for the first time last night three times in a row in a car full of friends. We liked the beat. We all said the same thing in the end, “she sure does say GOD a lot”. Since that’s almost the only word you can understand. And of course that she is super whiny still. It might grow on me… Thank god.

  13. The only part I don’t like is the beginning verse…it seems too rushed ….I kept getting this song would be great Kylie!!

  14. I LOVE this! This is exactly what I wanted… This could definitely be a HIT!
    It sounds like Gwen which is great! I think people will hear this and think this is Gwen Stefani…
    I’m impressed and totally hope this takes off, with the Grammys + Target exposure I’m sure it will!
    I’ve had it on repeat over and over <3

  15. WOW!! When it comes to Gwens solo stuff, i usually expect a ballad type song or the songs with attitude that you wanna play real loud (RG, HBG, WIU, NTYGI, WYWF etc etc)— & I always say I’m never excited or care for new music BUT this song is kind of amazing!! I’m kind of shocked how good it is, and totally not the kind of sound I expected. I agree with everyone who said it gives a Kylie vibe. The song is pure rich bubble gum girly pop! With the quality of this song and Used to Love You, I think we can all forgive her for STF and BDL..(mostly STF). And comparing her two new singles to them, u can REALLY see how rushed, uninspired, and totally not genuine those songs were.

  16. I was able to pre order the target version with the 4 bonus songs as well as the itunes bonus track loveable here in canada 🙂

  17. I like it overall! It is catchy and different then a lot of stuff on the radio. It is VERY repetitive. I feel like this was intentional because studies show repetitive pop songs are more likely to be hits! I am excited to see the live video. I am not sure if it is enough to make me sit through a long boring awards show though 😉 ,

  18. ^^^@marion, she’s not performing the show, her videos gonna be in/associated with a target commercial. —-also I’ve listen to it 6 times now, I think she’s got something right at her finger tips. This will be bigger than BDL, STF, & UTLY…combined… (Well not that BDL & STF would be hard to top lol) but seriously. A song about Mr. Blake Shelton. Mark my words. So happpppy for her!!

  19. THIS SONG IS SO PURE GWEN…
    HER WEIRD ACCENT AND MELODY IN “I was broken but fiiiine” ARE OLD-SCHOOL GWEN.

    I’m so thankful that Gwen is working with guys who respect her discography while taking her next level.

    MY MIND IS BLOWWWWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

  20. @ Bob but to see it when it premiers , I would have to sit through the show to see the commercials. I think I will wait till it’s available to stream! The song is really growing on me and I love it now. I kept singing it at work today. It’s an ear/ brain worm for sure 🙂 Congrats Gwen!

  21. It’s a catchy song! The first half is great, but the second half gets repetitive (just like UTLY) and I’m not crazy about the God lines. I feel like they could have come up with a better bridge than that. Other than that, I like it a lot and I hope it does well. #11 on iTunes!

  22. ^I noticed that too, the bridge seemed weak to me. I just saw there’s 18 total tracks comin throughout all the various releases- that’s pretty hefty! MMLY is pretty heavily pop (Cool, Sweet Escape level), so I’m hoping there are deeper layers within the album.

  23. This is a random question but anyone knows if Gwen got a special guest to play that guitar riff on MMLY? I guess we’ll find out on Monday for the live video…

  24. I hate to say this, but it’s only been a day and I’m already bored with this song. It’s good, but there’s nothing special about it. It sounds like every other pop song. Maybe I’ll get more excited about it after she performs it live…

      1. Honestly, I feel like a lot of the creativity that came from L.A.M.B. came from Tony and/or the collaboration between the two. He was really involved with her solo career when she first started and I don’t think he has anything to do with it this time around.

        I feel like the two of them have really drifted apart. In one sense it’s to be expected, but they were so close. I wonder what happened?

  25. Just to let you know the song is also available to stream on Tidal!

    I love it, it a lot better than UTLY imo but I agree it does get a bit repetitive towards the end… the artwork though!!

  26. That was me and i didn’t hear MMLY I heard Misery although I have to say the album that I heard before the changes was SO much better that wasn’t my mistake I was told I was hearing MMLY you have to think though this has all been over a cell phone so not the best way to listen to music plus I was going somewhere bumpy ride from what I heard of Misery though best track so far off this album MMLY is a little to bubble gum for me she needed the guy’s desperately and we would have had ROS 2.0 on are hands

  27. Jenny, we should do a “Make Me Like You Day”… It’d be good to improve views, sales and buzz… It’d be amazing!

  28. Btw most lyrics sites says it’s “You’re running back to me” but BSO says “You’re on me like jewellery”?? So who’s right?
