LSS: How to Love by Lil Wayne

Okay. I may not still be totally over by the great Super Bass… but guess what?
I have a new last song syndrome (LSS)!

I first heard this song via my sisters and their weird obsession with youtube artists that do covers of songs. So, yeah. I did not hear the original version first.

The one that stick my mind was the cover Megan Nicole did (where she changed some lyrics to Spanish). My sister harassed the replay button on this one.

I have to be honest, by then, I already liked the song. I was impressed by how meaningful it was — add to that how sweet Megan Nicole’s rendition was.

However, my LSS started (and still goes on for what seems like forever) when I heard the original version.

I don’t know.
There is something about Lil Wayne’s voice (and character?) that contradicts the song entirely…
but still and makes every bit of sense and gives it the right sentiment.
Or simply put, it brings more “kilig” factor to the song.
Again, I don’t know.

What the hell…
Just cut the music up! Little louder… ;P

How to Love by Lil Wayne

 Cut the music up a little louder
You had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart
 Never really had luck, couldn't ever figure out
 How to love
 How to love
You had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
 Now you're in this corner tryna put it together
 How to love
 How to love
For a second you were here
 Now 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 and your looks were 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 five seconds
 Without you being insecure
 You never credit yourself, so when you got older
 It's seems like you came back ten 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 try to steal your heart
 Never really had luck, couldn't ever figure out
 How to love
 How to love
See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
 Now you're in this 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 transformed to visions
 The fact that you saw the world affected all your decisions
 But it wasn't your fault
 Wasn't in your intentions
 To be the one here talking to me
 Be the one listenin'
 But I admire your popping bottles and dippin'
 Just as much as you admire bartending and stripping
 Baby, so don't be mad
 Nobody else tripping
 You see a lot of crooks and the crooks still crook
See You had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart
 Never really had luck, couldn't ever figure out
 How to love
 How to love
See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
 Now you in this corner tryna put it together
 How to love
 How to love
Oh,
 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 try to steal your heart
 Never really had luck, couldn't ever figure out
 How to love
 How to love
See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
 Now you in this corner tryna put it together
 How to love
 How to love
See you had a lot of crooks try to steal your heart
 Never really had luck, couldn't ever figure out
 How to love
 How to love
See you had a lot of moments that didn't last forever
 Now you in this corner tryna put it together
 How to love
 How to love, mmmm.

So just like Megan Nicole, I want to know…

…who taught you How to Love?
