Music Mondays: Face to Face by Ruel

Happy Monday!

The song I’m choosing for this week is Face to Face by Ruel. He is one of my favorite artists and I want more people to know him.

In an interview with Coup de Main, Ruel explained,

“When I do find myself on social media and looking at how my fans look at me, I often find people talking about me like we intimately know each other even if I have never met this person. That was a weird feeling at first, but then I realized I could relate to this because of the way I looked at my idols. For this song, I wanted to take it a whole step further, I wanted to create a character who would go to extreme lengths to be noticed by their idol.”

But I wonder, I wonder
If you would feel the same
If one day we’d meet face to face

LYRICS:

[Intro]

Un, deux, trois

[Verse 1]

I love that new dress you bought
Yeah, you sure look nice
Heard you liked that new restaurant
You know I’ve been there twice
And the way that you switch up your hair
All of the moments we’ve shared
Strolling the streets back in Rome
Oh, how I wish I was there

It ain’t fair, no, it ain’t fair

[Chorus]

I’m in my bed sitting, talking to screens all day
But I can’t seem to say what’s on my brain
But I wonder, I wonder
If you would feel the same
If one day we’d meet face to face

[Verse 2]

I messaged you yesterday, haven’t heard back yet
Did I do something wrong or is it something I said?
And it hurts me inside ’cause it’s killing my pride
To see you reply to all of these other guys
Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why (Oh)

[Chorus]

I’m in my bed sitting, talking to screens all day
But I can’t seem to say what’s on my brain
But I wonder, I wonder
If you would feel the same
If one day we’d meet face to face (Face to face)

[Chorus]

I’m in my bed sitting, talking to screens all day
I know you don’t even know my name
But I wonder, I wonder
If you would feel the same
If one day we’d meet face to face


I hope you liked this week’s song. See you next week!
