The minute I wrote this song I knew I wanted to get it out before my tour started, to give fans something new and fresh in addition to everything from Illuminate I can't wait to perform it on the tour, and for everyone to hear it. It's equal parts what is amazing about this album, and what I'm so excited for about the music I have coming up next.
— Shawn Mendes

"There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" is a single by Shawn Mendes that was released on April 20, 2017. It was announced via his social media accounts. This was added as the opening track on an updated version of the deluxe version of the "Illuminate" album on digital platforms only.

Background and releaseEdit

The slow reveal began with a moody blue-tinged picture of the singer playing guitar with the message "There's Nothing #HoldinMeBack" on Monday morning (Apr. 17), followed by another wavy blue background with the whole phrase floating in white.

LyricsEdit

I wanna follow her where she goes
I think about her and she knows it
I wanna let it take control
'Cause everytime that she gets closer

She pulls me in enough to keep me guessing
And maybe I should stop and start confessing
Confessing

Oh, I've been shaking
I love you when you go crazy
You take all my inhibitions
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
You take me places that tear up my reputation
Manipulate my decisions
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
There's nothing holding me back
There's nothing holding me back

She says that she is never afraid
Just picture everybody naked
She really doesn't like to wait
Not really into hesitation

Pulls me in enough to keep me guessing
And maybe I should stop and start confessing
Confessing

Oh, I've been shaking
I love you when you go crazy
You take all my inhibitions
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
You take me places that tear up my reputation
Manipulate my decisions
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
There's nothing holding me back
There's nothing holding me back

'Cause if we lost our minds and we took it way too far
I know we'd be alright, I know we'd be alright
If you are by my side and we stumbled in the dark
I know we'd be alright, I know we'd be alright
'Cause if we lost our minds and we took it way too far
I know we'd be alright, I know we'd be alright
If you are by my side and we stumbled in the dark
I know we'd be alright, I know we'd be alright

Oh, I've been shaking
I love you when you go crazy
You take all my inhibitions
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
You take me places that tear up my reputation
Manipulate my decisions
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
There's nothing holding me back
I feel so free when you're with me, baby
Baby, there's nothing holding me back
