Lyrics

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]

Tell me something I need to know Then take my breath and never let it go If you just let me invade your space I’ll take the pleasure, take it with the pain And if in the moment I bite my lip Baby, in that moment, you’ll know this is Something bigger than us and beyond bliss Give me a reason to believe it

[Chorus] Cause if you want to keep me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder And if you really need me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder (Lo-love me harder) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Love me, love me, love me) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Harder, harder, harder)

[Verse 2: The Weeknd] I know your motives and you know mine The ones that love me I tend to leave behind If you know about me and choose to stay Then take this pleasure and take it with the pain And if in the moment you bite your lip When I get you moaning, you know it's real Can you feel the pressure between your hips? I’ll make it feel like the first time

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & The Weeknd] Cause if you want to keep me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder (I'ma love you harder) And if you really need me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder (Lo-love me harder) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Love me, love me, love me) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Harder, harder, harder) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Love me, love me, love me) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Harder, harder, harder)

[Bridge: The Weeknd & Ariana Grande] So what do I do if I can’t figure it out? (You got to try, try, try again, yeah) So what do I do if I can’t figure it out? (I’m gonna leave, leave, leave again)

[Chorus: Ariana Grande & The Weekend] Cause if you want to keep me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder (I'ma love you, love you, love you) And if you really need me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder Got to love me, baby Cause if want to keep me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta Got to love me harder, love me harder And if you really need me You gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta (I'ma do it, do it, do it) Got to love me harder (I'ma love you harder)

[Outro: Ariana Grande] Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Love me, love me, love me) Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (Harder, harder, harder) Boy get love me, love me, baby (Love me, love me, love me)

Just a little bit harder, harder, baby (Harder, harder, harder)
