Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You" Lyrics: An Essential GIF Reaction — PHOTOS

The wait is finally over: On Monday, Carly Rae Jepsen premiered her new single, "I Really Like You," and it's three and a half minutes of bubblegum pop bliss. (I was going to make a joke about how I really, really, really, really, really, really like it, but that just seemed a bit too obvious, you know?) Now that we've heard the 29-year-old Canadian-born singer's latest offering, we must address the elephant in the room: Did she outdo herself? Is "I Really Like You" even catchier than "Call Me Maybe"??

For me personally, no, it isn't... but that doesn't mean it isn't catchy! Make no mistake: "I Really Like You" is certainly the catchiest song I've heard this year — I just think "Call Me Maybe" is still in a class of its own. The fact of the matter is, Jepsen may never record another track that's as infectious as "Call Me Maybe" — but "I Really Like You" definitely comes close. The '80s-tinged single's lyrics perfectly describe the intoxicating, exhilarating, and sometimes giggly feelings that overcome you when you're falling in like with someone — and that makes it pretty hard to resist.

Check out the full lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen's "I Really Like You" (plus a few GIFs) below.

1st VERSE:

I really wanna stop, but I just got the taste for it

I feel like I could fly with the boy on the moon
So honey hold my hand, you like making me wait for it
I feel like I could die walking up to the room, oh yeah

PRE-CHORUS:

Late night watching television

But how'd we get in this position?

It's way too soon, I know this isn't love

But I need to tell you something

CHORUS:

I really, really, really, really, really, really like you

And I want you
Do you want me?
Do you want me, too?
I really, really, really, really, really, really like you
And I want you
Do you want me?
Do you want me, too?

POST-CHORUS:

Oh, did I say too much?

I'm so in my head when we're out of touch

I really, really, really, really, really, really like you

And I want you

Do you want me?

Do you want me, too?

2nd VERSE:

It's like everything you say is a sweet revelation

All I wanna do is get into your head
Yeah, we could stay alone, you and me and this temptation
Sippin' on your lips
Hangin' on by a thread, baby
PRE-CHORUS
CHORUS
POST-CHORUS

BRIDGE:

Who gave you eyes like that, said you could keep them?

I don't know how to act or if I should be leaving

I'm running out of time, going out of my mind

I need to tell you something

Yeah, I need to tell you something

CHORUS
POST-CHORUS
CHORUS

Fin.
