H.E.R. Worries About Showing Off Her Vulnerable Side in a Relationship on Her New Song, "Damage"

TGIF, and not just because it’s finally the end of another dismal week of 2020! Tomorrow is Saturday, which means Saturday Night Live is airing a brand new episode. In case you haven’t heard, pop powerhouse Adele is hosting the show for the first time ever (and even donned a hilarious American accent in the episode teaser). Though it would’ve been awesome to hear some new material from Adele, she isn’t the one performing—H.E.R. is!

H.E.R., your fave R&B crooner, multi-instrumentalist, and all-around cool girl is hitting up the SNL stage, and since she just released her ahhhmazing most recent single, “Damage,” chances are she’s going to give us a taste of it during her performance. But before she does that, we have dissect these lyrics, don’t you think? It would kinda be rude not to.

To put it plainly, H.E.R. is here waxing poetic about how she’s allowing herself to be vulnerable in a relationship, but if she isn’t too careful, he/she/they could easily take advantage of her emotions and flip the switch on her. Classic 21st century relationship stuff.

Since you’re already obsessed with how that sounds, watch the video and learn the lyrics ahead of her performance, below:

[Verse 1: H.E.R. & Ant Clemons]
If you got it, it ain’t no question
No, it ain’t no room for guessin’
No more than emotionally invested (No, no)
Showin’ you all my imperfections, oh

[Pre-Chorus: H.E.R., Ant Clemons, H.E.R. & Ant Clemons]
If I let you, you’ll take me for granted, yeah (You, you, you, you)
If I’m worth more than you could manage, manage, yeah
Open with me, oh, we could be honest
Closer to me, oh, givin’ me silence
Promise that you won’t let me fall
, oh, oh

[Chorus: H.E.R., Ant Clemons, H.E.R. & Ant Clemons]
Holdin’ me tight, lovin’ me right, givin’ me life
All night you could be (You could be)
Tellin’ me lies, makin’ me cry, wastin’ my time
The wholе time, so just be
Careful what you takе for granted, yeah
‘Cause with me know you could do damage
You (Uh), you could do damage
You (You), you could do damage (You, you, you, you)
Yeah, uh

[Verse 2: H.E.R. & Ant Clemons]
Worry ’bout it, I’m puttin’ pressure (You know)
You’ll only kept me if I let you
No, he ain’t the one, it’s just for pleasure
Either learn me or I’m a lesson, no, no

[Pre-Chorus: H.E.R., H.E.R. & Ant Clemons]
If you want me don’t take me for granted, yeah, yeah
If I’m worth more than you could manage, baby
Oh, you’re fallin’ for me, oh, baby, I’ve caught it
Ooh, we could be whatever you wanna call it

Promise that you won’t let me fall, oh, oh

[Chorus: H.E.R., H.E.R. & Ant Clemons]
Holdin’ me tight, lovin’ me right, givin’ me life
All night, you could be (You could be)
Tellin’ me lies, makin’ me cry, wastin’ my time
The whole time, so just be
Careful what you take for granted, yeah
‘Cause with me know you could do damage
You (Uh), you could do damage
You, you could do damage

[Outro: H.E.R.]
Oh, you could do damage
Oh, you could do damage, yeah
Oh, you could damage, yeah, yeah, oh, oh
Oh, you could damage, oh with me
