[Shawn & Camila:]
Ahhh - Ahhh
Ahhh - Ahhh

He knows
Dirty secrets that I keep
Does he know it's killing me?
He knows, he knows
D-d-does he know
Another's hand have touched my skin
I won't tell him...

    Cabello described "I Know What You Did Last Summer" as a "conversation between two people in a relationship where it's dying, but nobody wants to admit that it's dying." (wikipedia)

    Are you also in highschool like your bf who cheated on you? I guess you are still too young for love, mature first and you will love the right person at the right time. You will know love when you are more mature.
    For the person who commented today or HOPE4BEST at 15:34 pm. You are still too young for true love. Like is different from love. Let go of the guy who cheated on you and let go of the guy you are with right now. If you are not ready to open and trust at this moment, better not to think of being with someone because you are confused right now. Have a relationship when you are ready and when you are ready to open up and trust again. - CONFIDENTIAL 11/25/17

    This is for the person who posted on October 11th at 10:55. I know exactly how you feel. I'm a senior in high school. I was dating this guy for just over a year, and I found out that he had cheated on me with his co worker. Now I'm with someone else and he wants me back. Honestly I don't know what to do. I really like this guy- might even love him, but I still love my ex too, which just complicates everything so much more. And just the other day my ex had told me that he had got me a ring- like an engagement one. It's so complicated. Like do I stay with the guy I'm with even though he's gonna be leaving me soon to join the Marines, or do I go back out with my ex, and hope that whatever broke in our relationship could be fixed? Honestly though...I really don't know if I can open up and ever trust anybody like that again.

    I can really relate to this song because i had just found out that my boyfriend has been cheating on me with another girl. She is a freshman.I feel like i will never be able to love anyone ever again. I honestly dont know what love is anymore.

    The girl cheated on the guy and now the boy is asking the girl where she has been.

    This song is about the elephant in the room. He knows she has cheated but she will not come clean about it. This leads to a strain on the relationship.

    The girl cheated on the guy last Summer, but the girl feels really bad about it, but won't tell him, yet he knows. They know their relationship is ending, yet nether can seem to let go. If you listen to the song, when Shawn is asking where she's been, etc, Camila is trying to just say "Hold me close" this doesn't have to end, don't say anything, don't talk, don't try to fight with me, "Hold me close."
    Throughout the whole song, Shawn is asking where Camila has been, Camila is trying to avoid it. "I know what you did last Summer,"

    It's about a love that's falling apart. The girl has cheated on the guy. They both know that it's practically over but won't admit it to themselves because they're trying to hold onto the past. The guy knows what she did, hence the 'I know what you did last summer'. They both can't seem to let each other go or hold each other close
