POV talks about finding true love
POV is a mid-tempo R&B tune that focuses on the subject of true love. The song is melodious. The percussion and string accompaniments are soothing. Grande’s voice calmly expresses her passionate feelings for her partner.
In the 3:21 track, Grande talks about how much her partner loves her back. She then expresses the desire to see herself from her partner’s point of view (POV) to understand why her partner loves her despite her shortcomings.
She is happy her partner accepts her for who she is and understands her, but she also yearns to learn to love herself. It is a song about self-doubt and the struggles to love herself, and she wants to see what he loves about her through his eyes.
She sings in the chorus:
“I wanna love me (Ooh)
The way that you love me (Ooh)
Ooh, for all of my pretty and all of my ugly too
I’d love to see me from your point of view
I wanna trust me (Trust me)
The way that you trust me (Trust me)
Ooh, ’cause nobody ever loved me like you do
I’d love to see me from your point of view”
