Act like You Love Me

Album: Handwritten Revisited (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Shawn Mendes debuted this ballad during his headlining set at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on August 16, 2015. "It gets a little dark," he told the crowd before adding he was sitting on a tour bus on a rainy day thinking about a story of a happily married couple who had been together for many years. Then, Shawn wondered how the man would feel if his wife said she was leaving him.

    Shawn added the song is hypothetical and isn't about one of his actual experiences.
