Can't Feel my Face

And I know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
And she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
But at least we'll both be beautiful and stay forever young
This I know, (yeah) this I know

She told me, "Don't worry about it."
She told me, "Don't worry no more."
We both knew we can't go without it
She told me you'll never be alone-oh-oh, whoa

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

And I know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb
And she'll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
All the misery was necessary when we're deep in love
Yes I know (yes I know), girl, I know

She told me, "Don't worry about it."
She told me, "Don't worry no more."
We both knew we can't go without it
She told me you'll never be alone-oh-oh, whoa

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh
I can't feel my face when I'm with you
But I love it, but I love it, oh

Abel Makkonen Tesfaye was born on 16 February 1990, in
Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and raised in Scarborough,and is
an only child. He is of Ethiopian descent. His parents,
Makkonen and Samra, emigrated from Ethiopia in the 1980s.

Since Tesfaye's father was never around when he was
growing up, and his mother was constantly working, his
grandmother took care of him most of his young life. Because
of this, Tesfaye speaks fluent Amharic; it was the first
language he learned. His grandmother would take him to
services at their Ethiopian Orthodox church.

Tesfaye says he adopted the stage name The Weeknd after
dropping out of high school at the age of 17 and, along with a
fellow crew-member, "left one weekend and never came
home". The spelling was modified to avoid trademark issues
with a Canadian band already named The Weekend

Critics favorably reviewed "Can't Feel My Face," comparing it
to the works of Michael Jackson. Rolling Stone ranked it as the
best song of 2015. It was also nominated for two Grammy
Awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
The song experienced commercial success, peaking at
number one on both the US Billboard Hot 100 and the
Canadian Hot 100.
