Kanye West – Love Lockdown lyrics

I'm not lovin you, way I wanted to
What I had to do, had to run from you
I'm in love with you, but the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me, all the way home
So ya never know, never never know
Never know enough, til it's over love
Til we lose control, system overload
Screamin no no no, no no
I'm not lovin you, way I wanted to
See I wanna move, but can't escape from you
So I keep it low, keep a secret code
So everybody else don't have to know

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Now keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Now keep ya love locked down, you lose

I'm not lovin you, way I wanted to
I can't keep my cool, so I keep it true
I got somethin to lose, so I gotta move
I can't keep myself, and still keep you too
So I keep in mind, when I'm on my own
Somewhere far from home, In the danger zone
How many times did I take fo' it finally got through
You lose, you lose
I'm not lovin you, way I wanted to
See I had to go, see I had to move
No more wastin time, you can't wait for life
We're just racin time, wheres the finish line

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Now keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Now keep ya love locked down, you lose

I'm not lovin you, the way I wanted to
I met no one new, I got no one new
Know I said I'm through, but got love for you
But I'm not lovin you, the way I wanted to
Gotta keep it goin, keep the lovin goin
Keep it on a roll, only god knows
If I'll be with you, baby I'm confused
You choose, you choose
I'm not lovin you, way I wanted to
Where I gotta go, I don't need you
I been on this road, too many times before
I'm not lovin you, way I wanted to

So keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Keepin ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Now keep ya love locked down, ya love locked down
Now keep ya love locked down, you lose, you lose
You lose... You lose... You lose

    Well the first verse tells like how a guy broke up wif his gurl cuz he didn't want his friends to really know but when he did break up with her he realized he really loved her.
    In verse 2 its tellin how hes rethinkin if he did love her or not but he can't tell. So hes tryin to tell himself hes not a bad guy for doin what he did.
    In verse three it shows how hes really confused now and tells himself that he doesn't love her but yet he still has somethin for her.
    If you guys are confused on how to tell what it means then just like actually read the lyrics carefully and slowly that's what I did. =)

    I like this song. I had an ex that I still liked then one day he asked me out again. So I said yes, but then I really didn't kno if I should be with him again soo. I didn't tel any of my friends. And I kept it low. I liked him but it wasnt the same feeling that I felt before. And I didn't really need him. At that time I didn't really like anyone else. But yeah. So I finally broke up with him. And I think that's what this song is about.
