Drake – Take Care lyrics

[Rihanna]
I know you've been hurt, by, someone else.
I can tell by the way, you carry yourself.
If you let me, here's what I'll do.
I'll take care of you.
I've loved and I've lost.

[Drake] [Verse1]
I've asked about you, and they told me things,
But, my mind didn't change and I still feel the same
What's a life with no fun, please don't be so ashamed.
I've had mine, you've had yours.
We both know, we know.
They won't get you like I will,
My only wish is I die real,
Cause that truth hurts and those lies heal.
And you can't sleep thinking that he lies still.
So you cry still, tears all in her pillowcase,
Big girls all get a little taste, oh
Pushing me away, so I give her space oh.
Dealing with a heart that I didn't break.
I'll be there for you, I will care for you
I keep thinking you just don't know.
Tryna run from that, say you done with that,
On your face girl it just don't show.
When your ready, just say your ready.
When all the baggage just ain't as heavy,
And the party's over just don't forget me.
We'll change the pace, and we'll just go slow.

[Hook:] [Drake]
You won't ever have to worry.
You won't ever have to hide.
And you have seen all my mistakes,
So look me in my eyes.

[Rihanna]
Cause if you let me, here's what I'll do.
I'll take care of you.
I've loved and I've lost.

[Verse 2:] [Drake]
It's my birthday, I'll get high if I want to,
Can't deny that I want you,
But I'll lie if I have to. Cause you don't say you love me,
To your friends when they ask you.
Even though we both know that you do, you do.
One time, been in love one time.
You and all your girls in the club one time.
All so convinced that you're following your heart,
Cause your mind don't control what it does sometimes.
We all have our nights though,
Don't be so ashamed.
I've had mine, you've had yours.
We both know, we know.

[Hook:]
You hate being alone when you ain't the only one.
You hate the fact that you bought the dream
When they sold you one.
And you love your friends,
But somebody should have told you somethin,
To save you.
Instead they say...

("Don't tell me, I don't care, if you hurt.
I don't tell you, you don't care if you're true.
Don't tell me, I don't care, if you hurt.
I don't tell you, you don't care, if you're true. ")

[Rihanna]
I know you've been hurt, By, someone else.
I can tell by the way, you carry yourself.
If you let me, here's what I'll do.
I'll take care of you.
I've loved and I've lost.

    The meaning of this dam song yall is basically of two people who have deep feelings for each other. Obviously both em been hurt, despite tryna hide their feelings and tryna push em away. But both em are willing to 'take care' of each other if either one of em allows em to do it like the song says! " i know you been hurt by someone else. I can tell by the way you carry yourself. If you let me heres what ill do, i ll take care of you, ive loved and ive lost"
    Pendejos! Jajajaj.

    I think the song is about to people that are in love with each other but they are afraid to love because they have be hurt in the past, I think this song is a really great song and I can relate to it cause I feel the same way and I have also had my heart broken and it is hard to let someone else in when he have had a broken heart. I love drake.

    It's about a girl and a guy who has beeen hurt by a previous partner and they love eachother deeply but they are afraid to show their true feelings for one another due to the fact that they are scared that if one of them gets too close to the other they will get hurt again, meaning they are afraid to get their heart broken again but they are not afraid to go out there and find true love again. In the song they are telling eachother how they will take care of eachother because they know what happen to one another before they found eachother. I love this song it reallly makes you think about what true love is and what true love is about. This song touches my heart.

    I guess this song is pretty much about a girl (well, he never actually says "she", so it may be a g** partner, but I doubt it) who's gone through a lot, done quite questionable s*t, in other words, someone who went to hell and came back. But now she's back, she feels as if she doesn't deserve love or to be loved. Or something between those lines. And of course, he's trying to tell her that the past is history and he loves her regardless.
    But it may be a lot deeper, when it says "and you can't sleep thinking that he lies still" it clearly refers to a dead person, maybe a past lover? But then, why does she feel remorse? Did she kill him?
    What do you think, everyone?
