Background

Demi Lovato confirmed "You Don't Do It For Me Anymore" by releasing the incomplete tracklist along with the album pre-order and the release of the title track.[1] On September 8, 2017, she released the song as a promo single.[2]

Although the ballad can be interpreted as a breakup song, Demi said that to her the lyrics cover a topic she has been very vocal about it after recovery: drugs and alcohol. As explained in an interview with Next Radio, Demi is breaking up with her old self, her addiction doesn’t do it to her anymore.[3]

Demi: "Everyone relates to this song differently, and that's the beauty of music. You're allowed to connect with a song in the way that you choose. For some people this song is about the end of a relationship, but for me, it's a goodbye letter to my old self and some of my destructive behaviors. So it's deeply personal.[4]

Lyrics

I see the future without you
The hell was I doing in the past
Now that I've learnt all about you
A love just like ours wouldn't last

I won't fall for your games
So don't hate me when I say

That you don't do it for me anymore
So, you don't do it for me anymore

Money won't
Pay for your problems
You gotta fix them yourself
Vices and pity won't solve them
Stop feeling bad for yourself

I won't fall for your games
So don't hate me when I say
That you don't do it for me anymore
So, you don't do it for me anymore

I'm sorry for honesty I could not hear
To lie to you
To lie with you
I'm sorry for honesty I'm well aware
I lied to you
When I lied with you

I won't fall for your games
So don't hate me when I say
That you don't do it for me anymore
So, you don't do it for me anymore
