VanderWaal, Grace - I Don't Like You Lyrics




Here we go again in that same story
Follow the routine until we say, "I'm sorry"
Hands are shaking till I just look down at the floor
Face is turning red and eyes are going puffy
You ask me why we yell and I come up with nothing
Your insecurities are pulling you back
But please know, oh, oh

I love you, but I don't like you
The simple truth is I can't do this, though I try to
I love you, but I don't like you
And I can't shut you out, so I'm shutting my mouth
But I'll never despise you
I just don't like you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

We pour our souls out about the past months
By just trying to talk about lunch
And every single thing we say is gonna start a new war
And I'm exhausted from this tug of war of words
And when you said, "I don't care for you", it got worse
We both know it isn't working but I still put you first

'Cause I love you, but I don't like you
The simple truth is I can't do this, though I try to
I love you, but I don't like you
And I can't shut you out, so I'm shutting my mouth
But I'll never despise you
I just don't like you

Ooh
We both refuse to lose
We both refuse to choose the higher road
Which way will we go? Oh-oh, oh-oh
And ooh (Ooh)
We both refuse to lose (Lose)
We both refuse to choose the higher road
Which way will we go? Oh-oh, oh-oh

'Cause I love you, but I don't like you
The simple truth is I can't do this, though I try to
I love you, but I don't like you
And I can't shut you out, so I'm shutting my mouth
But I'll never despise you
I just don't like you
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
I just don't like you

VanderWaal, Grace I Don't Like You Comments
  1. CoffeeDrinkingwoman Kelch

    I've liked her since the first day I heard her sing. Before the talent show. I've introduced my grandchildren to her music and they all love her. Grace is one of a kind!! Great sing here! Loved it.

    Ross Winslow

    I've introduced her to all of my Great Nieces and Nephews but haven't had the success you've had which disappoints (and baffles) me. Happy you've done better!

  2. ivan portillo

    Ur so beautiful i like you

  3. Dreams

    Grace at 15: Creates future mega hit
    Me at 15: Is in ER with crayon in nose

  4. Kookie Monster

    She is such a generic white girl with a mediocre singing voice... why are people so obsessed with her? LOL

    Dave Thomas

    If you aren't familiar with Grace Vandewaal (Stargirl from the Disney movie Stargirl), here is her most recent music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hk9RhLn5aZo
    Grace Vanderwaal YouTube channel and playlist. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2qc1KM4zgRoOpysqVEaNbw/playlists

  5. melody lang

    even though it’s such a common name, if you search up “Grace” into youtube, vanderwaal is the first suggestion

  6. Zaylia Georgia

    If anyone’s been in an abusive relationship.....

  7. Dave Thomas

    Grace stars in the movie Stargirl on Disney Plus March 13. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoRlldfi7E8

  8. •BLACKPINK •

    WHY IS THIS NOT ON THE RADIO. SHE IS NO DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER ARTIST

    james thomas

    Grace's label has not pushed her onto mainstream radio yet because grace says she has time and wants to enjoy being a kid first hopefully now that she is 16 she will want the push

    Dave Thomas

    Maybe that will change soon. From ScreenRant dot com: "The Stargirl trailer teases a breakthrough performance from VanderWaal, a musician who is still relatively unknown in pop culture. Her 2017 debut album Just the Beginning earned her a loyal fanbase, along with the November 2019 release of the EP Letters Vol.1. Now, with a lead role in Stargirl, VanderWaal will become more recognizable upon being introduced to millions of Disney+ subscribers, especially if her performance hits the mark. And given the director Hart's success this past year with Fast Color, an indie hit starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stargirl will have an extra bit of momentum throughout 2020."

  9. sweet tart

    How did I just find out about this now!?! I love this!! <3

  10. Lucy Dolan

    Grace is amazing🌹👌

  11. Edgar Delvalle

    If she does good gain criticism, i she doesn't samething. Wake up people and relocate your mind before start with coments. She's a baby star that just had born. Let be her, let her survive, let her do what she knows what to do. Than til than i hope you'll stop criticizing her. All she need now is support. And she'll get it, weather you like it or not. Not trying to be rude, just trying to support her great talent. Give her the oportunity to bright and shine like a diamond in the sky.

    Crimson God

    Well said. Pls! Guys stop hating or attacking a 16 yo girl.

    Ross Winslow

    Edgar - couldn't agree more, she is special and we who have found Grace are truly fortunate to have her in our lives!

  12. Golden Lotus

    this sounds so similar to other songs mmmmmmm. copy maybe? but in dif style

    Crimson God

    Which songs? Name them.

    james thomas

    Name them because you cant it does not sound like other songs good attempt at trolling but your not good at it yet.

  13. Funny Lj

    Happy birthday Grace!😀❤🎉🎈

  14. Andressa costa

    🇧🇷🇧🇷❤️❤️❤️

  15. Camila K

    I could picture her with her ukulele singing like a Jack Johnson style... in the beach... ocean scenario... nature. This is another pop star from Hollywood, again. But nice, although I 'd love to see her singing again with the husky voice. =)

    james thomas

    She sings many different styles guess you dont follow her here is another song from the ep letters vol I
    https://youtu.be/TBk195XPk3s

  16. Nahla Aromin

    I just got home from the airport and I’m not getting my food right

  17. J H

    Grace can do no wrong. Every release is beautiful.

  18. Vick !

    ok what's up aurora.

    james thomas

    @Vick ! hair is hair how about Grace's beautiful voice

    Vick !

    james thomas look I’m sorry I didn’t do a whole thesis on it. I looked it up and couldn’t find it. And yeah she has an amazing voice. Next time you should tell me what I should say, send it to me in an email, and then I will look it over and see if I can do that.

    james thomas

    @Vick ! on an unrelated note did you enjoy her new ep letters vol I

    Vick !

    james thomas tbh I don’t know it that well, I think it’s pretty though. she is a talented singer-songwriter... and this song is the top of them, i think. it’s such a mood. which was your fave?

    james thomas

    @Vick ! the city then poser then this I was at the Asheville nc show in August when she debuted this song

  19. Kari Nixon

    She's Sia mixed with the girl that be dancing in sia videos

  20. Kari Nixon

    She sounds exactly like sia




    That's a compliment btw

  21. Alpaca In Hufflepuff

    Gosh, she is so underrated.

    Crimson God

    Agreed, but sometimes underrated is a good thing. But yes, she deserves so much more than this.

    Alpaca In Hufflepuff

    Crimson God That is true. Also, as soon as you said “she deserves so much more than this” this is what my mind instantly thought of;
    So mUch mORe than this iT is whAt iT is

  22. Bryan Rowe

    Love the new song. You have matured a lot.

    james thomas

    Her last album just the beginning is fantastic this is from her new ep letters vol I and its amazing

  23. Funny Lj

    ❤❤❤❤❤👍👍👍👍👍

  24. Jack Riley

    I think this is a great song but something kept me thinking the style familiar with another artist. It finally hit me that Grace is likely influenced by Billy Eilish.

    Crimson God

    Billie Eilish? Not really. Two* different artist.
    Grace more like Malenie or Halsey or Bea Miller. But nooo!!! She is the first Grace VanderWaal, the one and only!

    james thomas

    No not at all they are nothing alike they dont write alike they dont sound alike they dont act alike

    Crimson God

    Omg, the autocorrect... Two*

    Greg Cadman

    Grace listens to a wide range of artists they would logically have influence, check out all her music to see her range of styles

  25. Flying Dutchman

    Like it !

  26. 23Marion Hess

    1. youre so talented
    2. youre really pretty
    3. youre music is amazing
    4. youre getting more confident and we stan

  27. Gabriel Cunha

  28. Madame Paulettes

    Love this!! Can't wait to watch Star Girl! One of my favorite books and you are the perfect casting for Star Girl!!

  29. Emily Norris

    She sounds like SIA

    james thomas

    No other then some voice breaks they sound nothing alike

  30. Widad Bader

    You were better 12 no effence your music is still nice tho

    james thomas

    She was amazing then and even better now

    Greg Cadman

    12 year old Grace was not making music at this lvl

    Better in what way? She is better singing, her voice is more mature with a wider range and more control. Her songs have increased in complexity.......

  31. Thomas Wagner

    I dont`get it.Grace has uploaded my Favorite Song of hers Yesterday,and nobody recognises it?
    Type in "Happy Songs" Grace Vanderwaal and enjoy!

    Jairo Suarez

    Because it was not supposed to be released yet. Trying to make it public before been released goes against Grace's interests

    james thomas

    It's a beautiful song someone found it on sound cloud and leaked it sounds like a demo o hope it gets released it's just to good to go away

  32. Friend Stuff

    This girl is very talented

  33. Matthew deGroot

    Soon people are going to be saying to their kids, "You are the future Grace Vanderwaal"

I said to her that It is very very important. But it is true. You are very important to me. I love you. Happy Birthday! 😘😘🇺🇸🎂🎂

    Dave Thomas

    If Grace sees your comment I believe she will be touched and happy that you care so much. Here is a present for you in case you haven't see it yet. The trailer for Grace's new movie StarGirl was just released. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fE-e7v4bvxw

You inspire me so much and from one ukulele player to another, I think you're incredible. Hope your bday is amazing. Can't wait for Stargirl!!! ❤️ Love From Breann

    james thomas

    Are you here to enjoy grace or make fun of her

    Greg Cadman

    Yes she does check out the rest of her EP letters vol 1

  60. Ross Winslow

    Grace listens to a powerful voice "from deep in a place in my chest"... most of us would call that her 'heart'! She ALWAYS follows it and it always takes her... and us... to a wonderful place!!

  61. Ryan&Isiah Vlogs

    literally was watching her why golden buzzer right before this an oml her voice is so much diffrent

    james thomas

    This is from her new ep letters vol I its amazing her last album just the beginning is also amazing subscribe to her channel and enjoy the last three years of incredible music

  68. Kenji Lucero

    She is so beautiful.
    Im inlove

  69. Bubblecries

    she reminds me of aurora bc of the hair lol

  70. thatbeingsaid thatbeingsaid

    Well...where is that beautiful singing she used to do? She sounds like everyone else. If you put this song on and I didn't know it was her, I couldn't tell if it were another singer. I know honesty hurts... And with a reason to better ourselves. I'd like to see her stretch her talent in the style of singing she became a hit with. She is very raw and natural and that's what I liked about her... Now she's going a little to the other side.

    Greg Cadman

    Grace is an eclectic artist she does most styles
    Here are a few lives of different songs in different styles

    what if she is our new secret?

    james thomas

    She is lol but we are willing her I envy all the people who have not discovered her yet the joy of hearing grace for the first time is something I will never forget.

  86. Sylvia Wright

    I'll never despise you, l really felt that mannn.

  87. UFC casual #1

    I remember finding Grace before America's got talent, I was doing my military training and I used to blast her out in the hallway when we were cleaning weapons and me and all the lads used to sing along to her song's after a long day on the range

    Ken Aldrich

    cool, but you did this BEFORE America's Got Talent? No, it could only have been after.

  93. Olivia Horan

    Her hairstyles is exactly like *Aurora*

    james thomas

    You may want to look at Aurora then look at grace and take back the looks exactly like statement. They are slightly similar and that's it grace didn't even know who Aurora was until a few months ago she said her hair was inspired by hope Sandoval who had braids long before Aurora. Aurora is not the only person to have braids lol and if you really looked at both styles you would not say exactly

    Dave Thomas

    Aurora? Is she the singer who copied her hairstyle from Hinata Hyuga and sings and dresses like Enya in some songs?

  94. lstr ms 1260

    She's a perfect mix of Taylor swift and Sia
