Stitches - Shawn Mendes



Free piano sheet music: Shawn Mendes - Stitches.pdf


Now that I'm without your kisses, I'll be needing stitches.


Stitches is a song recorded by Canadian singer Shawn Mendes for his album, Handwritten. It was released on March 2015. Stitches is the first song by Shawn Mendes to appear on a Billboard airplay chart. It also topped the UK Singles Chart and German Singles Chart. Stitches reached the top 5 in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand and reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and on the Canadian Hot 100.

The song is written in B minor, but I put it in the key of A minor. Song is mostly based on four chord progression (in my arrangement Am - G - C - F). Lyrically, the song is about bad break up ("I thought that I'd been hurt before, but no one's ever left me quite this sore") and trying to move on (Got a feeling that I'm going under, but I know that I'll make it out alive), and so on.

On Billboard by Jason Lipshutz we can read some interesting things about Mendes and his song. About lyrics he said: »It’s more about feeling heartbroken and emotionally beaten up (...) but that can be taken in different ways, in any type of relationship. It doesn’t have to be about a girl.« And whan Jason asked him about actual stitches, Mendes said »When I was 13, I cut the back of my leg open and got 14 stitches, I was trying to step over a guardrail, and it sucks because I easily could have walked around it. A week before that, I had broken my wrist, and a week after getting stitched up, I went in for appendicitis. That was a weird month.«

If you like the song, you should also watch the acoustic version of Stitches, featuring Hailee Steinfeld.


 




Lyrics:

I thought that I'd been hurt before,
but no one's ever left me quite this sore,
your words cut deeper than a knife,
now I need someone to breathe me back to life.

Got a feeling that I'm going under,
but I know that I'll make it out alive,
if I quit calling you my lover,
move on.

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe,
shaking, falling onto my knees,
and now that I'm without your kisses,
I'll be needing stitches.
Tripping over myself,
aching, begging you to come help,
and now that I'm without your kisses,
I'll be needing stitches.

Just like a moth drawn to a flame,
oh, you lured me in, I couldn't sense the pain,
your bitter heart cold to the touch,
now I'm gonna reap what I sow,
I'm left seeing red on my own.

Got a feeling that I'm going under,
but I know that I'll make it out alive,
if I quit calling you my lover,
move on.

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe,
shaking, falling onto my knees,
and now that I'm without your kisses,
I'll be needing stitches.
Tripping over myself,
aching, begging you to come help,
and now that I'm without your kisses,
I'll be needing stitches.

3x
Needle and the thread,
gotta get you out of my head,
needle and the thread,
gonna wind up dead.

Needle and the thread,
gotta get you out of my head,
get you out of my head.

You watch me bleed until I can't breathe,
shaking, falling onto my knees,
and now that I'm without your kisses,
I'll be needing stitches.
Tripping over myself,
aching, begging you to come help,
and now that I'm without your kisses,
I'll be needing stitches.
