[Verse 1: Camila Cabello]
Shawn wasn’t very fond of surfing. At least that’s what Camila Cabello was told while they were dating. After they broke up, the first thing Shawn did was post an Instagram picture surfing. He had admitted to being afraid of the ocean water with Jimmy Fallon in 2020. After their breakup, they sold their house as well. Despite Camila saying she would love Shawn forever, things didn’t work out for them.
[Pre-Chorus/ Chorus/ Bridge/ Post-Chorus: Camila Cabello & Ed Sheeran]
While moving on, Camila is also making sure that she has fun. She is dancing with strangers and some have turned out to be casual dates for her as well. Everything is changing at a fast pace. But this is what life is all about, uncertainty. Love came for her when she was hopeless and left her when she was the happiest.
“Y sigue bailando” translates into “and keep on dancing”. “Hay amor en todos lados” translates into “There is love everywhere”.
Now, she is moving on and she is dancing with strangers to keep herself surrounded and occupied. The post-chorus is the repetition of the title of the song, ‘Bam-Bam’.

Both of them have made mistakes and they have now turned into moments.
