"I Have Questions" is a song intended to be the first promotional single off Camila Cabello's debut studio album, Camila. The song was the first chapter of her story. She considers it as “the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud”.

It was released as a promotional single on May 22, 2017, along with a lyric video. Cabello performed the song along with "Crying in the Club" in several television appearances.

The song is currently scrapped from the album, with "Real Friends" replacing it as the first promotional single.

Trivia Edit

  • Camila wrote the original lyrics in her notes on her phone a year and a half before she released it.
  • The song was originally an interlude.
  • Bibi Bourelly helped write the second part of the song.
  • According with Camila, this was like the "first chapter" of The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving. album (now titled Camila) being The Hurting part.

Composition and release Edit

Lyrically, "I Have Questions" contains themes of abandonment and the acknowledgement that a former object of affection was not who they appeared to be. As the song title implies, the singer has many queries for the song's subject. When Cabello announced her debut studio album on social media, she revealed she began writing "I Have Questions" in a hotel bathroom while on tour in 2016, "I was completely broken during that time," she stated. The song was first featured as an intro on the music video for her first single "Crying in the Club", and was later released to music stores and streaming services.

The story behind the album starts with the second song that you’ll hear called “I have questions” which I started writing in a hotel bathroom on tour a little over a year ago. I was completely broken during that time, I was in the kind of pain that’s uncomfortable to talk about, and it was the kind of chapter you never want to read out loud…. I couldn’t write another song for 6 months because writing meant I had to feel everything, and I wasn’t ready to do that yet. so when I graduated from hotel bathrooms to studios to make my first album, I was making music about everything BUT what i was going through, it was like a secret burning on my tongue and for some reason I could not get myself to say it. 'Til one day I just could not run anymore. I pulled up the lyrics from the year before, and “I Have Questions” was written.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Why did you leave me here to burn?
I'm way too young to be this hurt
I feel doomed in hotel rooms
Staring straight up at the wall
Counting wounds and I am trying to numb them all

[Pre-Chorus]
Do you care, do you care?
Why don't you care?
I gave you all of me
My blood, my sweat, my heart, and my tears
Why don't you care, why don't you care?
I was there, I was there, when no one was
Now you're gone and I'm here

[Chorus]
(I have questions for you)
Number one, tell me who you think you are
You got some nerve trying to tear my faith apart
(I have questions for you)
Number two, why would you try and play me for a fool?
I should have never ever ever trusted you
(I have questions)
Number three, why weren't you, who you swore that you would be?
I have questions, I got questions haunting me

I have questions for you
I have questions, I have questions
I have questions for you

[Verse 2]
My, my name was safest in your mouth
And why'd you have to go, and spit it out?
Oh, your voice was the most familiar sound
But it sounds so dangerous to me now

[Chorus]
(I have questions for you)
Number one, tell me who you think you are
You got some nerve trying to tear my faith apart
(I have questions for you)
Number two, why would you try and play me for a fool?
I should have never, ever, ever trusted you
(I have questions for you)
(I have questions for you)
I have questions (I have questions for you)
(I have questions for you)

[Bridge]
Do you care, do you care?
Why don't you care?
I gave you all of me
My blood, my sweat, my heart, and my tears
Why don't you care, why don't you care?
I was there, I was there, when no one was
Now you're gone and I'm here

[Chorus]
I have questions for you (oh)
I have questions for you (oh)
I have questions for you (I have questions)
I have questions for you (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Outro]
I have questions for you (foul play, no, foul play, no)
I have questions for you
I have questions for you
[Whispers though Outro]
How do I fix it? Can we talk? Can we communicate?
Is it my fault? Is it my fault? Damn. It's me
I have questions
