Gwen Stefani's 'This Is What the Truth Feels Like': 8 Lovey Songs We Totally Think Are About Blake Shelton

By
Gwen Stefani is wearing her heart on her sleeve!
With her new album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, Gwen seems to be spilling all on her budding relationship with Blake Shelton and her heartbreaking split from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
We already knew that the song, "Make Me Like You," was written about Blake, but there is plenty more where that came from. "Truth" is a bold-faced love letter to the country star, while "Asking 4 It" is a sultry take on the uncertainty of a new romance.
Meanwhile, a "shady" ex (Gavin, perhaps?) finds himself on the receiving end of a scathing takedown (and hilarious new nickname) on "Naughty."
Gwen herself has sold this album as her most personal offering yet,telling NPR: "This is the first record I've ever made in real time. ... It starts off angry, sad, mad and quite sarcastic — and then really does take a huge change, to hope. People always want to say, 'How do you evolve as a musician?' The biggest evolution is to write. It's so great to write a record that's mainly about being happy, and that's something new for me."
In an interview with USA Today, Gwen revealed that she began writing sessions for the album in June 2015. The singer has said multiple times that her relationship with Gavin began to crumble in February 2015 (the day after the GRAMMYs, specifically) and she filed for divorce that August. Three months later, a rep for Gwen confirmed that she and Blake had started dating.
"I found out my life was going to change forever. Instead of wanting to die, I said to myself, I’m not going to go down. I’m going to turn this into music," she told the publication.
Read on for a sampling of the most powerful lyrics on Gwen's new full-length -- and our guesses for who each song is about!

"You're My Favorite"
Thought I had found it, but I wasn't sure Always a feeling that there could be more Could be more But I've been there, done that, buyed it, tried it More than I can count Shook it, stirred it, broke it, smoked it More than I can count Oh, but out of everything You're my favorite
"Where Would I Be"

"Make Me Like You"
I was fine before I met you I was broken but fine I was lost and uncertain But my heart was still mine I was free before I met you I was broken but free All alone in a clear view But now you are all I see
"Truth"
I really don't want to embarrass myself No one's gonna believe me Not even myself They're all gonna say I'm rebounding So rebound all over me 'Cause I don't want nobody else I know we said we're gonna live in the moment And that's all good That's what we agreed I know it Every day I believe in you and me more and more

I know that it's a lot to handle me But it is what it is It's all a part of my broken history I don't know where I was, I was lost I was nothing The real version of me I had never ever seen You've given me truth and it's such an unfamiliar subject So put your hands on me please
"Rare"
You're a sapphire You're a rolling stone You're a sparkle In a deep black hole You're like moonshine When the curtains close You're my answer One that no one knows
And I can't believe it That you even exist You know I would be dumb to give perfection up
Songs Probably About Gavin:
"Used to Love You"
You thought there were no boundaries, but you just pushed me too far I guess nobody taught you, nobody taught you how to love Suitcase, Band-Aids Pulling back out the driveway You go, I'll stay You can keep all the memories I thought I was the best thing that ever happened to you, I thought you loved me the most
"Red Flag"
Look at you, big boy I'm making it easy for you to go give my love away Spend the check before it even hits the bank This is what happens when you don't hear what your mother say The signs, the signs, the signs, the signs
Big mistake Red flags cry Right there But I close my eyes Carelessly I let it slide A little late Warning signs Right there But I close my eyes Punish me I let it slide
You know how to spend it You know how to blow it up It's getting so expensive You know how to screw it up
"Naughty"
I see you hide behind your glasses, see you love the shade Shady so long that Mr. Shady is your name Shipping it off, contain it, seal it, rip up the receipt But somehow it always finds its way right back to me
Thinking that nobody, nobody, nobody knows But I got your number, I got your phone This ain't my first time at the rodeo Hello! You slide and you slide on a slippery slope Call the police, I'm on patrol Got locked and loaded, I'm ready to go
"Me Without You"
There's more of me and you've seen nothing Hey, you've done nothing that I can't repair I can't repair
No, I don't need you Not a little bit To myself, I've finally admitted it No, I don't need you Not a little bit Get rid of it
Now I'm me without you And things about to get real good Watch me breathe without you And things about to get real good
