"Like Lovers Do", also known by demo titles such as "Winona Ryder" and "Winona Ryder Ref 1", is an unreleased song by Poppy. The song is an outtake from the "Bubblebath" EP.

Background

The original leaker of the snippet, Eclipse, posted a 22-second snippet on SoundCloud on September 4th, 2016. Eclipse also tweeted more lyrics from the song and on June 26th, 2017 leaked another snippet on Twitter with the lyrics that they had posted months before the leak. All of the snippets can be listened to here.

Theme

From what has been leaked thus far, "Like Lovers Do" is about Poppy being passive-aggressive to an unnamed boy, mocking him for watching softcore porn, being a feminist and unable to buy a plane ticket because of this manner. Later, she mockingly asks if she is "just [his] type". The boy she sings about seems to only use women for sex. Unlike other songs in the Poppy discography, this song deals with mature subject matter.

Lyrics

Softcore porn in a rental car
Only like a boy who could take it hard
So pretty, you hurt my eyes

Now the boy says he's a feminist
That's why he can't buy his own plane ticket
Close your eyes and imagine you're inside her
So pretty, you never had to try

Ooh, am I
What you like?
Ooh, am I
Just your type?
Ooh-

Like to think you're in control
Another girl, another hole, am I being typical?

Trivia

  • The speculated title by fans was "Am I What You Like?" for a long time before the title was confirmed fake by copyright claims by Island Records.
  • According to the leaker of the snippets, the song is about men having sex with multiple women.[1]
