Critical reception Edit

Thomas Bleach said: "On the back of the release of her highly praised EP “Nemesis” Bridgit Mendler has dropped another single before stepping out on tour in March. The brief “Temperamental Love” is as much Devontee’s song as it is hers. His rap verse takes up half of the song before her slow burning chorus takes. The production and melody is similar to Diana Ross’ “Im Coming Out” and I know that sounds like a weird comparison but it’s valid. It perfectly continues the indie-pop sound that she has injected to her sound with a more DIY approach. “Temperamental love taking over me. All the lows shake my bones every time you leave but I can’t escape the thought of you boy”. However compared to her other tracks from this project I can’t help but feel a bit underwhelmed. It’s repetitive but not overly catchy and fails to make that impact that the EP did. It’s a slow burner though and does grow on you with each listen."[13]

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1: Devontée]
Uh, uh
Girl, you ain't the only one that's all alone
Hell, I'm only seeing you on the phone
What's a FaceTime? I need face-to-face time
Calls being dropped, you think it's all my fault
I'm in the hills, girl, and I'm working extra hard
Don't let the long distance make a mess of us
Or make you think I'm less involved
I'll call you tomorrow, I'm tired of this

[Chorus: Bridgit Mendler]
Temperamental love taking over me
All the lows shake my bones every time you leave
But I can't escape the thought of you, boy
But I can't escape the thought
But I can't escape the thought of you

[Verse 2: Devontée & Bridgit Mendler]
Ya, baby, me neither
I need to breathe you, I never need a breather
I need to see you, and never say "see ya"
I need you now, I'm just as eager
I'll wait around, that's the procedure
I don't ever do it on purpose, girl, believe me
Both get heated, tell me what's the reason
What makes you think for me this is easy?

[Chorus: Bridgit Mendler]
Temperamental love taking over me
All the lows shake my bones every time you leave
But I can't escape the thought of you boy
But I can't escape the thought
But I can't escape the thought of you

[Bridge: Bridgit Mendler]
Give me the highs and lows, baby
I'm hung up on it
I'm all alone, I'm all alone
Hopped on a plane with your woes, baby
Do what you want but
I'm waiting up all alone, boy

[Chorus: Bridgit Mendler]
Temperamental love taking over me
All the lows shake my bones every time you leave
But I can't escape the thought of you, boy
But I can't escape the thought
But I can't escape the thought of you

[Outro: Bridgit Mendler]
But I can't escape the thought of you, boy (But I can't escape the thought of you, boy)
But I can't escape the thought
But I can't escape the thought
