This Is What You Came For Lyrics
(feat. Rihanna)

[Verse 1:]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody's watching her
But she's looking at you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

[Chorus:]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody's watching her
But she's looking at you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

[Post-Chorus:]
You (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

[Verse 2:]
We go fast 'til they can't replay
Who knows why it's gotta be this way
We say nothing more than we need
I say "your place" when we leave

[Chorus:]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody's watching her
But she's looking at you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

[Post-Chorus:]
You (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

[Bridge:]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
Yeah

[Chorus:]
Baby, this is what you came for
Lightning strikes every time she moves
And everybody's watching her
But she's looking at you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

[Post-Chorus:]
You (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, oh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ooh), you (oh-oh, oh)
You (oh-oh, ohh, ohh)

This Is What You Came For Info:

Taylor Swift actually ghost wrote for the song under the alias Nils Sjöberg.

• Calvin Harris originally intended the song for Rihanna's Anti album.

He said:
"I was playing it to her for her album and she said, 'I don't really think it suits my album.' I went, 'Ah OK, no worries.' And then she said, 'But I'd do it as a feature'. I'm like, 'What?!'"

"'OK, that's incredible,' you know, 'thank you so much,' and then when she was done with her album, she recorded this for me."

Rihanna hadn't heard the final mix until he played it to her at Coachella 2016. (She made a surprise appearance to perform We Found Love with him there).

Calvin said:
"She was like 'this is sick.' It was great. It was the first time anything's happened like that with me when I sit with the artist and nervous to play it to her because I changed so many bits from when she heard it, like musically. I'll never forget that actually, sitting in the trailer playing it and seeing the vibe hitting her, she was into it. It was amazing."
