This Is What You Came For Lyrics

Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody's watching her
But she's looking at you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, you, oh, oh
You, oh, oh, oh, oh

Baby, this is what you came...

    I think that this song is about a girl that’s popular and loved by everyone and everyone watches her for her beauty wishing she could be theirs but she’s looking at that one specific person who she only loves

    I think this song is refering to how when a singer is on the stage, 'everybody's watching her' but she's only looking at one person, her true love. That's what I've always interpreted the meaning to be

    The girl is pretty. There is a bad girl who wants her crush, and she isn't happy at ALL. Everyone looks at her serenity, hottish, and grace. The singer is sad and angry. But the boyfriend also likes the hot girl and is drawn towards her. The lightning refers to the electricity of love and feeling of being drawn together. There is a tinge of pepper, anger, sorrowfulness, and fury in the singer's voice. She loves her crush so much, yet he is drawn away to another girl, which becomes her hate. The girl is so pretty that everyone wants her, but the only person who she wants so so badly is your crush or boyfriend. Jealousy is starting fire in your soul and heart. Yet the sad ending mightn't last long. Maybe the singer will somehow get the crush back and pay the girl.

    I believe this song talks about a girl who is framed as being bad (“= lightning strikes every time she moves”) [in children movies lightning is a reference of evil so it is usually used when a evil character enters the stage.] at her boyfriend by her boyfriend so she says “baby this is what you came for”. “And she is looking at you “ means that she is mad at him or she is still in love with him.

    I think the true meaning of the song is two people start dating, then the girl relizes that the man loves somebody ELSE and she exepts that he is in love with someone else. I think it is that because it says it says SHE not me.

    A guy starts to date a girl, they fall in love. Then he realizes that she's a celebrity (any physical celeb) But only when he goes to one of her show does he understand how much of a big celebrity she is. He then understands what he is in for if he wants to date her. She shows her loyalty by having eyes only for him in the show.

    You have all missed the true meaning of this song. The Illuminati based song is flaunting the fact that they have access to portal devices shaped like cubes. When seen they are often accompanied by lightining. They plan on all leaving the earth when poo hits the fan. Half the time she is saying cube, not you.

    The first image I got in my head upon hearing this was of a stripper or showgirl who is interested in a guy in the audience as much as he is interested in her. The "this is what you came for" is what makes it feel like someone you would pay to see and obviously everyone wants this girls attention but she only has eyes for one guy.

    So, I think the the song is about Taylor and Calvin..I think the "lightening strikes everytime she moves is referring to camera flashes and she is looking at him..

    Maybe the singer is just singing about the boy who like a girl... Nothing to do with jealousy

    I think this song is about a girl who is at a party with her boyfriend/crush or similar and there is another girl who is majestic and beautiful. Even though the amazing girl could have anyone in the room, she is looking at the singer's boyfriend/crush.
