Conan Gray – Checkmate (Lyrics)


You think you’re funny, right? Calling me drunk when it’s too late at night Telling me truths that you know all are lies Yeah, you think you’re funny, right? You think you’re super sly Flirtin’ with them but telling me you’re mine Building me up, but buttercup you lied! Now I’m gonna ruin your life. Cuz I’ve gotten tired of the games that you play When you tell me you love me then you throw me away. So, cry me a river till you drown in the lake, Cuz you may think you’re winning but Checkmate. Yeah you may think you’re winning but Checkmate. Now this is getting fun, I saw you kissing someone else’s tongue You say that I’m the only one you love, Baby, this is getting fun. I’ll let you think you won Date in the park, I’ll play it super dumb. Holding your hand, But in the other one… I’m holding a loaded gun. Yeah baby you should really run.

  1. "Building me up but buttercup you lied" build me up butter cup really is a bop like yes we stan a reference king

  2. Is it weird to be addicted to song to this level

    Thinking about this made me think about kpop stans
    (I'm 1 myself)

  3. Is it bad this is kinda what I’m going through? I’m dating this guy who flirts with every other girl but me, it’s summer and I can’t really make plans with him so I don’t think I can dump him over text, so I just kinda started flirting with other guys, it sounds bad but he put me through a lot even though I tried really hard to give him love, a girl liked him and started telling everyone they were dating, I I figured out he told her we broke up so he could play her, I was so blind that I didn’t break up with him, he also just followed me a lot but never wants to talk to me, he’d flirt with girls and when I’d talk to his friends he’d tell them to stop talking to me, I lost one of my best guy friends because he thought I liked him, no I only have my best friends boyfriend to go to advice for, and half the time I have to give him advice too
    Edit: oh wow I just found the build me up buttercup reference 😂 this is why I love Conan

  4. Hmm I keep finding that my friend is listening to songs about heartbreaks and suicide… Should I be worried?

  5. Everytime I saw Fün with an ü my head was reading it the german way since we have the letter ü xD

  6. Why do I love this song. I could literally listen to this all the time. It makes me feel like I’ve won…but like I don’t have a boyfriend…oi.

  7. I have seriously loved Conan Gray since the beginning. I would watch all his videos including the ones where he would just talk to us. He's just so sweet and truthful. A beautiful person inside and out, I'm happy that he is evolving 💜

  8. i just finished lyrics i wrote today❤ the song is called i miss you

    here they are:

    im broken

    a washed away token

    followed by oceans

    drowning in the sea

    i rose up

    making up my luck

    thinking that i could be me

    maybe if you see

    how its like to meet

    someone of your dreams

    and lose them in the seams

    then you would believe

    its not that easy

    i wish it could be

    i wish i could see

    the old me

    im floating

    wasted in emotions

    counting up these sorrows

    its all fake to me

    but maybe

    if i would just believe

    that this is not a dream

    i would see

    maybe if you see

    how its like to meet

    the person of your dreams

    and lose them in the seams

    then you would believe

    its not that easy

    i wish it could be

    i wish i could see

    the old me

    but maybe this is real

    and i just need to see

    i lost the one that was meant to be.

    and ohh

    i miss them

    i miss them

    i miss them

    and

    i love them

    i love them

    i love them

    and

    they left me

    they left me

    they left me

    and

    im here alone with no one to hold

    (comment what i should fix and when you would like the song to come out.)❤😜😊👍✌😉

  9. Woooww he got so many talents!!! Scroling coments and i saw that this video that everything made by himself I think he is a real genius!!!!
    anyway I LOVE YOU SO MUCH conan❤🧡💛💚💙💜 your voice is sooo amazing

  10. Me, a weeb: I clicked this bcI thought it was an "愛して愛して愛して" cover (bc of the art and colors) and found something even better 👌

  11. so story time i was in a long distance relationship and i introduced him to conan and we agreed to listen to this song when we saw each other and then few months later he broke up with me, shit happened and this song describes the situation exactly and it’s just so ironic how we planned to listen to it together but like woaahhhhhh anywwah this is lame bye
