The 7 Most Risque Lyrics From Shawn Mendes' Self-Titled Album

Well, Shawn Mendes has -- gasp! -- grown up a bit, and he's no longer the squeaky clean 16-year-old who serenaded his way into listeners' hearts with the G-rated heartbreak bop, "Stitches," back in 2015. Over three years later, Mendes' self-titled third studio album, out Friday (May 25), takes a major step up in maturity both sonically and with the inclusion of some slightly suggestive lyrics.

Don't worry about Mendes tarnishing his sugary sweet image, though. Gentlemanly as always, he still keeps it classy on LP3, which also includes his most vulnerable and politically-driven tunes to date.

However, at 19, we think it's only natural for some of his content to get a little sexually implicit when the time is right, employing multiple allusions to risque nights. Here are seven instances of eyebrow-raising lyrics to be heard on Shawn Mendes.

"Nervous"

"You got me acting like I never done this before
I promise I’ll be ready when I walk through the door"

"Where Were You In the Morning?"

"And I hope you had a good reason
​Cause I know you had a good time
And yeah I’m looking up at the ceiling
And I keep wondering why"

"Fallin' All in You"

"Sunrise with you on my chest
No blinds in the place where I live
Daybreak open your eyes
Cause this was only ever meant to be for one night, still"

"Particular Taste"

"But oohh she’s so specific when she’s at my place
At my place she’s got particular taste
Yeah, she’s so obsessed with the chase
Yeah, she don’t waste time on conversations
No, she just goes right for the face yeah"

"Lost In Japan"

"I’m a couple hundred miles from Japan tonight
And I was thinking I could fly to your hotel tonight
‘Cause I can’t get you off my mind"

"Where Were You In the Morning?"

"You said I wanna get to know you
Why you gotta get my hopes up
You said that you were staying over
But then I woke up to the cold air"

"Fallin' All in You"

"Fast forward a couple years, yea
Grown up in the place that we live
Make love then we fight
Laugh cause it was only meant to be for one night, baby"
