Hands To Myself Lyrics

Can't keep my hands to myself
no matter how hard i'm trying to
i want you all to myself
You're metaphorical gin and juice
so come on give me the taste
of what it's like to be next to you
won't let one drop go to waste
You're metaphorical...

    The people who wrote the lyrics were referring to drugs throughout the whole song.
    The character in the song liked to snort heroin and cocaine whenever they got the chance.
    They were going to listen to noone's advice against it.
    And did not think it would ever become a problem or would stop, so why would she want to?

    Am I the only one that sees the theme of drug addiction? She mentions the downs and the uppers, aka typed of drugs. Also mentions the Doctor says it's not good, which only makes sense in the context of drugs. The whole breathing in and even the I could keep my hands to myself but I don't want to are further proof. I think the sex is only there as a disguise really.

    She has a love addiction with this guy, its talking about making love and sex... Even though there problems she still loves him (even when it is a bit creepy) Selena gomez said in her music video that all these young girls think of love and sex like a steryotyipcal movie- like thing, buts its not like that.. waatch this video for Selena Gomez to explain

    She basically can't keep her hands away from his metaphorical gin and juice.

    It's saying that she can't seem to get this guy out of her head and she can't keep her hands to herself. She must have one more taste of his love. "I mean I could, but why would I want to?" she says in her song. That's saying that she could potentially keep her hands to herself and not touch him, but she doesn't want to...

    It's about having a desirable feeling for a crush or someone you're in love with! You can't keep your hands to yourself!! Its a cheesy but yet enjoyable song!!
