Call Out My Name

The Weeknd

Call Out My Name Lyrics

[Verse 1]
We found each other
I helped you out of a broken place
You gave me comfort
But falling for you was my mistake


[Pre-Chorus]
I put you on top, I put you on top
I claimed you so proud and openly
And when times were rough, when times were rough
I made sure I held you close to me


[Chorus]
So call out my name (call out my name)
Call out my name when I kiss you so gently
I want you to stay (want you to stay)
I want you to stay even though you don't want me
Girl, why can't you wait? (why can't you wait, baby?)
Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of love?

Won't you call out my name? (call out my name)
Girl, call out my name, and I'll be on my way and
I'll be on my—


[Verse 2]
I said I didn't feel nothing, baby, but I lied
I almost cut a piece of myself for your life
Guess I was just another pit stop
'Til you made up your mind
You just wasted my time


[Pre-Chorus]
You were on top, I put you on top
I claimed you so proud and openly, babe
And when times were rough, when times were rough
I made sure I held you close to me


[Chorus]
So call out my name (call out my name, baby)
So call out my name when I kiss you so gently (ohh)
I want you to stay (I want you to stay)
I want you to stay even though you don't want me
Girl, why can't you wait? (girl, why can't you wait 'til I?)
Girl, why can't you wait 'til I fall out of loving?

Babe, call out my name (say call out my name, baby)
Just call out my name and I'll be on my way
Girl, I'll be on my—


[Outro]
On my way, all the way
On my way, all the way, ooh
On my way, on my way, on my way
On my way, on my way, on my way
(On my)

About “Call Out My Name”

Sampling his Oscar-nominated “Earned It” over a slow piano-driven beat from producer Frank Dukes (who collaborated with The Weeknd on his previous effort Starboy), Abel details his struggles to let go of a past relationship.

Abel explains that, although he is aware that his last lover didn’t put as much effort into the relationship as he did (“wasted my time”), he still wishes deep down that she would need him as much as he still needs her.

  • Is there a video for this song?

    Yes, the lyric video was released exclusively to Spotify on March 30, 2018 and the official video was released on April 12, 2018:

    The official video features a scene reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick’s famous 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, which helped pioneer the sci-fi film genre. Towards the end of “Call Out My Name,” it cuts to the inside of a spaceship that resembles the iconic, white tunnel that appears in the movie’s spacecraft.

    The Weeknd is a noted sci-fi and horror fan who likes to pay homage to the film genres in his videos. He also featured Odyssey-inspired scenes in the video for his Daft Punk collaboration “I Feel It Coming.”

  • How did this song perform on the Billboard charts?

    “Call Out My Name” debuted in the #4 spot on the Hot 100 the week ending April 14, 2018.

  • People are saying this album sounds like the "old" Weeknd. But why?

    Listen to his compilation album, Trilogy, and then to his new extended play, My Dear Melancholy,. Compare and contrast and see what you think. ;)

  • What did other artists say about the song?

    Fellow Toronto artist Tory Lanez was clearly a fan, remixing the hit while jokingly threatening to slap producer, AraabMUZIK
