The hard part always seems to last forever
Sometimes I forget that we aren’t together
Deep down in my heart, I hope you’re doing alright
But from time to time I often think of why you aren’t mine

But I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day you’ll get the sense to call me
I’m hoping that you’ll say
You’re missing me the way I’m missing you
So I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day I’ll get the pride to call you
To tell you that no one else
Is gonna hold you down the way that I do

Now, I can’t say I’ll be alright without you
And I can’t say that I haven’t tried to
But, all your stuff is gone
I erased all the pictures from my phone
Of me and you
Heres what I’ll do

I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day you’ll get the sense to call me
I’m hoping that you’ll say
You’re missing me the way I’m missing you
So I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day I’ll get the pride to call you
To tell you that no one else
Is gonna hold you down the way that I do

I hope you think of all the times we shared
I hope you’ll finally realize I was the only one who cared
It’s crazy how this love thing seems unfair
You won’t find a love like mine anywhere

But I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day you’ll get the sense to call me
I’m hoping that you’ll say
You’re missing me the way I’m missing you
So I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day I’ll get the pride to call you
To tell you that no one else
Is gonna hold you down the way that I do
But I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day you’ll get the sense to call me
I’m hoping that you’ll say
You’re missing me the way I’m missing you
So I’ll keep your number saved
‘Cause I hope one day I’ll get the pride to call you
To tell you that I’m finally over you
I’m finally over you

Zane Lowe premiered the highly anticipated single at 17:00 (GMT) on Beats 1 today. Since then we’ve been in awe, listening to it on repeat. The brand new track is a modern ballad about heartbreak which puts Normani and Khalid’s talent centre stage.

Seriously, the way that their two voices compliment each other is sublime and the lyrics are incredible.

Plus as Normani’s first solo project outside of Fifth Harmony, it proves that she is an amazing popstar.

Seeing as she’s been in the studio with Stargate, we can’t wait to hear what else she’s been creating.

As well as playing the single on Beats 1, Normani and Khalid were also interviewed by Zane. Discussing Normani, Khalid said: “She’s so like me in so many different ways and we have so much fun together and she’s so honest and so real and just nice.”

He also went on to mention: “There’s not a lot of nice people in the world but she’s one of the nicest.”

Meanwhile, on why the song is so good, Normani revealed: “It’s just because we’re genuine friends.”

This is too cute. It’s so nice that they really care for each other just like Normani and Fifth Harmony.

‘Love Lies’ is a single from the soundtrack for Love, Simon, a brand new LGBTQIA+ teen drama.

The film looks amazing and we can’t wait to see it and watch ‘Love Lies’ scale charts worldwide.

This is just the beginning of Normani’s solo career and it’s so exciting. A superstar has arrived.
