Selena Gomez’s album Rare isn’t the only music the singer is giving fans this year. Gomez joined Trevor Daniel on the remix of his track “Past Life”; the lyrics explore letting go of who you were in the past, taking care of your mental health, and promising to be better to people you used—all while accepting you cannot erase the journey you’ve been on.

Gomez spoke with Daniel about why the song resonated with her. “When I heard the song the first time, I loved the fact that it was kind of like a story about all the things that we tend to hold onto and the patterns that we have,” she said. “And I’m very, very vocal about my personal experiences making decisions that maybe aren’t necessarily healthy for me.”

Gomez may be referring to her past relationship with Justin Bieber, which she discussed during her interview with NPR in January. Reporter Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked if getting over Bieber and that relationship was one of the harder parts of Gomez’s life.

“No, because I’ve found the strength in it,” Gomez responded. “It’s dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I’m not being disrespectful, I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse—”

“You mean emotional abuse?” Garcia-Navarro asked.

“Yes, and I think that it’s something that—I had to find a way to understand it as an adult. And I had to understand the choices I was making. As much as I definitely don’t want to spend the rest of my life talking about this, I am really proud that I can say I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt and I’ve found a way to just walk through it with as much grace as possible.”

Verse 1: Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez
I’m trying to be honest with my happiness
Don’t know why I’m bad at this, uh
And I don’t wanna sit in all my sadness
I know it’s a habit of mine

Perfect, perfect timing
I start, but I don’t know how to end
Don’t re-, don’t remind me
I ruined it before it began, oh

Chorus: Selena Gomez with Trevor Daniel


Last night was the last night of my past life
Got me here like you can never figure me out
Last night was the last time, was the last time
I’ll never let you figure me out
Sitting here, talking to myself
Thinking how I used to use you, only thing I’m used to
Last night was the last time, was the last time, woah

Verse 2: Trevor Daniel and Selena Gomez


Gave me what I wanted when I needed it
Honestly, I mean it
And if I could convince myself to feel it
You know I would feel it, I would

I start, but I don’t know how to end
Don’t re-, don’t remind me
I ruined it before it began, oh

Only thing I’m used to

Thinking how I used to use you, only thing I’m used to
Last night was the last night of my past life, woah

Will never go away (Woah, woah, woah)

Where we’ve been
What we know
