Shawn Mendes’ New Song is WAY ‘Too Much’ For Your Heart to Handle

By  | 

Shawn Mendes has somehow managed to shatter our hearts once again! We truly thought we’d never be able to get over the feels we were hit with following “Something Big,” but lo and behold his new track, “A Little Too Much,” is actually ENTIRELY too much for our poor hearts to handle! The feels are so overwhelming, you guys!

While the studio version “ALTM” was just released today, Shawn actually performed the track live for the first time ever back in October. Here’s how he described the song:

“This girl, she’s super strong and she never wants to tell anyone that she’s upset or frustrated,” he explained. “And I feel like sometimes when you keep it all in, you just want to break. You want to explode. It happens to all of us, right? It’s okay to ask for help, because we all feel the same.”



Like, how is this kid even real, you guys? Give us a second to compose ourselves… *Vomits from sobbing forever*

While we’re doing that (’cause it’ll prob take WAY more than a minute), we’re going to need you to check out the new song above! Here are the lyrics, too:

She would not show that she was afraid
But being and feeling alone was too much to face
Though everyone said that she was so strong
What they didn’t know is that she could barely carry on



But she knew that she would be okay
So she didn’t let it get in her way
Sometimes it all gets a little too much
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up
And you don’t have to be afraid, because we’re all the same
And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much

She would always tell herself that she could do this
She would use no help it would be just fine
But when it got hard she would lose her focus
So take my hand and we’ll be alright

And she knew that she would be okay
So she didn’t let it get in her way



Sometimes it all gets a little too much
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up
And you don’t have to be afraid, because we’re all the same
And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much, yeah
A little too much, I said a little too much, ohhh

Sometimes it all gets a little too much
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up
And you don’t have to be afraid, because we’re all the same
And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much yeah

Sometimes it all gets a little too much
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up
And you don’t have to be afraid, because we’re all the same
And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much

“A Little Too Much” is just one of the fabulous songs on Shawn’s debut album, Handwritten, out April 28. Want to download the song ASAP and have it forever? Duh! If you pre-order the CD on iTunes, you’ll automatically become its proud new owner!
