""Almost Love" for me is kind of my life story. It's these vignettes of relationships that never have the ending that you imagine or the perfect ending, which I think is not realistic."
— Sabrina Carpenter in a video by Teen Vogue[1]

Lyrics

Ah yeah, yeah, yeah

The moment when the light is red before the go
The moment when the curtain's down before the show
The moment when you're done, but maybe just one more
That's how I feel before I get you all alone

We could give it a minute
But what's the fun in a minute?
When we could push all the limits
Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Shirt hanging off my shoulders
Both hands wanna hold ya
So baby, what's the hold up?
Yeah, yeah

Can you feel the tension rising?
Now you're, now you're getting it close
Now you're, now you're getting it close
Almost love, it's almost love
Speed this up 'cause I'm excited
No more, no more taking it slow
No more, no more taking it slow
Almost love, it's almost love

Almost love
Almost love, but it could be love
Almost love
Almost love, but it could be love
Almost lo-lo-love
Almost love, but it could be love
It could be love
It could be, yeah

I want you like a midnight hour wants a view
I want you like a loner wants an empty room
I want you like a kiss that's long and overdue
I need you more than I have ever needed you

And we could give it a minute
But what's the fun in a minute?
When we could push all the limits
Ah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Shirt hanging off my shoulders
Both hands wanna hold ya
So baby, what's the hold up?
Yeah

Can you feel the tension rising?
Now you're, now you're getting it close
Now you're, now you're getting it close
Almost love, it's almost love
Speed this up 'cause I'm excited
No more, no more taking it slow
No more, no more taking it slow
Almost love, it's almost love

Almost love
It's almost love, but it could be love
Almost love
Almost love, but it could be love
Almost lo-lo-lo-lo-love
Almost love, but it could be love
It could be love
It could be, yeah, oh no

We could give it a minute
But what's the fun in a minute?

Can you feel the tension rising?
Now you're getting it so close
Now you're getting this so close
Almost love, almost love
Oh, 'cause I'm excited
No more, no more taking it slow
No more, no more taking it slow
It's almost love

Almost love, oh baby, oh
It's almost love, but it could be love
'Cause it's almost love, but it could be love
Almost love and you know
Almost love
But it could be love
'Cause it's almost love, but it could be love
Yeah, it could be love, eh

Trivia

  • Carpenter had the title of the song in the notes app on her phone for some time, as it was a reoccurring theme in her life.[2]
  • The song was written in 3 hours.
  • The second verse took the longest for Carpenter and the other songwriters to write. The line "I want you like a loner wants an empty room" was the last line written for the song. It is one of Carpenter's favorite lyrics on Singular: Act I because of "how it paints a picture".[3]
