Background

Prior to the album release, Demi revealed to MTV that there was a song she was nervous to release because it would make headlines.[2]

On August 5, 2017, Demi teased a possible snippet of "Ruin the Friendship".[3]

On September 13, 2017, Demi revealed the tracklist of the album with her fans via Twitter. "Ruin the Friendship" was revealed on the tracklist as the sixth track.[4]

When the album was released, there were rumors that the song was about long-time friend, Nick Jonas.[5]

Demi: "This is a song about wanting to get out of the friend zone with someone you have a close friendship with. This song is sexy, fun and a little scandalous. A lot of us have experienced this at some point in our lives, whether it's a close colleague you want to hook up with or a best friend you grew up with. This song is about wanting to take that next step in unchartered territories."[6]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Put down your cigar and pick me up (pick me up)
Play me your guitar, that song I love (song I love)
Thirsty for your love, fill up my cup (up my cup)
I got only good intentions, so give me your attention

[Pre-Chorus]
You're only brave in the moonlight
So why don't you stay till sunrise?

[Chorus]
Your body's looking good tonight
I'm thinking we should cross the line
Let's ruin the friendship, let's ruin the friendship
Do all the things on our minds
What's taking us all this time
Let's ruin the friendship, let's ruin the friendship

[Verse 2]
Baby, you and I got history (history)
And we can't deny our chemistry (chemistry)
So why the fuck are we a mystery? (mystery)
Let's just go with the connection, give me your affection

[Pre-Chorus]
You're only brave in the moonlight
So why don't you stay till sunrise?
 

[Chorus]
Your body's looking good tonight
I'm thinking we should cross the line
Let's ruin the friendship, let's ruin the friendship
Do all the things on our minds
What's taking us all this time
Let's ruin the friendship, let's ruin the friendship

[Bridge]
No, I can't keep denying every minute I think of you
No, I can't keep denying every minute I think of you
No, I can't keep denying every minute I think of you
No, I can't keep denying every minute I think of you

[Chorus]
Your body's looking good tonight
I'm thinking we should cross the line
Let's ruin the friendship, let's ruin the friendship
Do all the things on our minds
What's taking us all this time
Let's ruin the friendship, let's ruin the friendship
