The lyrics read: "We found each other/ I helped you out of a broken place/ You gave me comfort/ But falling for you was my mistake." He continues, "Guess I was just another pit stop/ Until you made up your mind/ You wasted my time." 

    The track Wasted Times then refers to an equestrian, drawing conclusions he's singing about Hadid, before comparing his relationship with her to his with Gomez: "Wasted times I spent with someone else/ She wasn't even half of you."
