She Don't Love Me (stylized as SHE DON'T LOVE ME) is a song by Zayn Malik. It appears as the eighteenth track on the deluxe edition of his debut solo studio album Mind of Mine.

Lyrically, "She Don't Love Me" is a semi-tragic story about unrequited love. Although the protagonist would prefer to be in a relationship with this girl, she doesn’t truly love him. They still have sex, but it’s not the same.

Background

In an interview with Complex, Zayn talked about the album:

"What’s the breakdown of the album, in terms of love songs and pain or heartbreak songs?" asked the interviewer to which Malik replied, "There’s a good ratio of both. There’s a lot of falling in love and a lot of falling out of love. It’s probably 60/40, falling out of love.

He certainly sings about falling in love here. She might not return his feelings, but at least he still gets (physical) intimacy with her.

In his self-titled autobiography, Malik states:

"I don’t swear on a track just for the sake of it; sometimes, a swear word is the only one that will express what you want to say in the way you want to say it. I don’t want to lose the power of what I’m trying to get across. […] Like “Lucozade”, the lyrics for “She Don’t Love Me” came out of me in a stream of consciousness. We were in [XYZ’s studio] partying, getting drunk, and I would get into the beat and jump on the mic to sing various lyrics, just trying stuff out. I was performing rather than recording when I sang that song, and the whole track was very unedited. It was just really relaxing to play it really loud, sip a beer and get up and sing when the mood took me. That song picked up a great energy along the way."

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I, I need you
I, I don't
I question myself all the time
Asking what I don't know

[Pre-Chorus]
It's kinda hard to walk right
When you're walking on my left
With your high heels on
And your sexy ass dress

I see you talking on your phone, phone
Wish I could get you on your own, own
But I've seen you gone over love

[Chorus]
I think I know she don't love me
That's why I fuck her right
I think I know she don't love me
That's why I fuck her right

[Post-Chorus]
I want you,
Your body
I want you
Your body on top of mine

[Verse 2]
I, I want you
I, I don't
I question myself all the time
Asking why I don't know

[Pre-Chorus]
It's kinda hard to walk right
When you're walking on my left
With your high heels on
And your sexy ass dress

I see you talking on your phone, phone
Wish I could get you on your own, own
But I've seen you gone over love

[Chorus]
I think I know she don't love me
That's why I fuck her right
I think I know she don't love me
That's why I fuck her right

[Post-Chorus]
I want you
Your body
I want you
Your body on top of mine

[Bridge]
Should we wait 'til the morning?
See it loud in your eyes
Can't escape what I'm feeling
Your body on top of mine

[Chorus]
I think I know she don't love me
That's why I fuck her right
I think I know she don't love me
That's why I fuck her right

[Post-Chorus]
I want you
Your body on top of mine
I want you
Your body on top of mine
