Katy Perry – Small Talk (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)
Katy Perry has a brand new single for 2019, and this one is going to be a hit. In the brand new song, titled “Small Talk,” Katy Perry is seen trying hard to move on from a past relationship. We have all been in this awkward stage.
Katy Perry’s last major contribution to music was the feature on Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down” music video, starring as a burger. This monumental occasion marks the end of a cold war that has been running between the two superstars for years.
So far, Katy Perry has released several singles in 2019. “365” and “Never Really Over” were released earlier this year, and the latter charted at #15 on Billboard Hot 100 chart. Looks like things are cooking up well for Katy’s next studio album.
Leading up to the release of “Small Talk,” Katy teased the lyrics of the song on her Twitter page.
“Small Talk” talks about that absolutely awkward phase right after when two people end a relationship. Things are worse when the couple is from the same office. Then, even after the breakup, the two of them cannot avoid meeting each other. Then, you have to put up your best act to act normal–as if you haven’t seen this person naked or haven’t been intimate with him. The lyric video for “Small Talk,” starring a Katy Perry look-a-like, shows this friction perfectly.

The lyrics, assisted by singer/songwriter Charlie Puth, talks about the awkward residual feelings of two exes who cannot avoid meeting each other. The two who used to share everything is now reduced to small talk which usually amounts to hi’s and goodbyes and talk of the weather. The two of them at one point were strangers, which turned into lovers and then turned back into strangers, and nothing else around them had changed.
It’s even worse when she attempts to move on. All eyes on her and him and the other him. It’s worst when the two exes have gotten physical during their relationship. As the lyrics explain they have enjoyed every inch of each others’ bodies. It is not easy to act as if none of this ever happened.
Let us hear your experiences of being lovers and strangers with that someone at the office in the comments below. Check out the full lyrics to the song next.
