Lyrics for PILLOWTALK by ZAYN:

Verse 1
Climb on board
We'll go slow and high tempo
Light and dark
Hold me hard and mellow

Pre-Chorus
I'm seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, 'body but me
'Body but us, bodies together
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you

Chorus
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

Verse 2
Pillow talk
My enemy, my ally
Prisoners
Then we're free, it's a thin line

Pre-Chorus
I'm seeing the pain, seeing the pleasure
Nobody but you, 'body but me
'Body but us, bodies together
I love to hold you close, tonight and always
I love to wake up next to you

Chorus
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

Bridge
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone
Paradise, paradise, paradise, paradise
War zone, war zone, war zone, war zone

Chorus
So we'll piss off the neighbours
In the place that feels the tears
The place to lose your fears
Yeah, reckless behavior
A place that is so pure, so dirty and raw
In the bed all day, bed all day, bed all day
Fucking and fighting on
It's our paradise and it's our war zone
It's our paradise and it's our war zone

Song Facts

The debut solo release from former One Direction-er Zayn Malik, “PILLOWTALK” gets “dirty and raw” about sex—Malik explained to The Sunday Times:

Everybody has sex, and it’s something people want to hear about. It’s part of everybody’s life, a very BIG part of life! And you don’t want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about.

Malik’s lyrics focus on both the spiritual and physical elements of sex: the pleasure and the pain, the purity and rawness, “our paradise and our war zone.”

Going solo frees Malik from the restraints of a made-on-TV ensemble like One Direction:

I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m not censoring myself anymore, so I’m not tired. I love it.

“PILLOWTALK” premiered on January 29, 2016, the day after an interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe during which he previewed the song and other tracks on his debut solo album Mind Of Mine. It later debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
