Songfacts®:

  • "Don't Get Me Wrong" is about a toxic relationship that has been going on for far too long. Neither Capaldi or his girlfriend want to split up as they're afraid of being on their own.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to stay too long
    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to tell you whatever you want
    But haven't you had enough of loneliness?
    And haven't we had enough of second best?
    So don't get me wrong


    Capaldi has finally woken up to the situation and tells his lover they need to end the relationship as they're just being horrible to each other.
  • Capaldi wrote the song with Los Angeles-based songwriter Jamie Hartman, who also co-wrote the Scot's hit single "Hold Me While You Wait" and Rag'n'Bone Man's "Human."
