[Lil' Wayne]

You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn't never figure out
How to love
How to love

You had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

For a second you were here
Why you over there?
It's hard not to stare, the way you moving your body
Like you never had a love
Never had a love

When you was just a young'un you're looks but so precious
But now your grown up
So fly it's like a blessing but you can't have a man look at you for 5 seconds
Without you being insecure
You never credit yourself so when you got older
It's seems like you came back 10 times over
Now you're sitting here in this damn corner
Looking through all your thoughts and looking over your shoulder

See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn't never figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

For a second you were here
Why you over there?
It's hard not to stare the way you moving your body
Like you never had a love
Had a love

You had a lot of dreams that transform to visions
The fact that you saw the world affected all your decisions
But it wasn't your fault
Wasn't in your intentions

You the one here talking to me
You don't wanna listen
But I admire your poppin bottles and dippin'
Just as much as you admire bartending and stripping
Baby, so don't be mad
Nobody else trippin
You see a lot of crooks and the crooks still crook

See You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn't never figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

Oooh,
See I just want you to know
That you deserve the best
You're beautiful
You're beautiful
Yeah

And I want you to know, you're far from the usual
Far from the usual

You see you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn't never figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn't never figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
Now you in the corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

    He's telling a girl that do many people loved her and she wasnt sure if she believed them or if she wanted to love them too. Otherwise, she didnt understand why "crooks" loved her so much.

    I had a lot of "crooks" steal my heart and they were always the wrong men. My dad abused me when i was little and i think because of that i was taught the "wrong" way to love. I don't think i know "how to love". I don't even love myself. Just like the song says. "never had luck, couldn't never figure out. See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever. Now you're in the corner trying to put it together. How to love. " that's exactly what i feel like i'm doing.
