Oh, yeah

Hey, how's it going?
Can you meet me down on Adelaide Street?
Can you talk for a moment?
There's no way to say this that easily
And everything I said, I swear I meant it
I need to tell you that this isn't your fault
And I know...

    Shawn Mendes is very talented and this song is so sweet because he's explaining to this girl why he's breaking up with her. And it's not because he doesn't love her I think it's because he loves her a lot and wants the best for her so he's letting her go, because in the end he knows its the best for her.

    to be honest I can relate to the girl character in this song, I feel like he couldn’t handle the commitment and the stress of a relationship which is understandable if he feels this way he can’t help it. But I feel like he should of let her know in the first place, not lead her on

    I feel like this song is about a guy and a girl but the guy is saying that he can’t meet the expectations from the girl. He is saying he wants to be with her but he has to be honest with her by telling her that it would be better if they were apart

    They love each other but the guy doesn't know if he can handle this kind of commitment. He's saying she deserves better than him because he can't take the pressure. There is no one else he could love except her.

    I feel like Honest is about a guy and a girl who have been seeing each other for a while and the girl is wanting more from the guy aka a relationship and he just can't give that to her ..

    Honest is about how even though the truth is hard it is the right thing to do and follow. In a relationship you have to be entirely honest with each other even though it can be hurtful and lead to a break up.
