Lil Wayne- How to Love

lyrics:

[Chorus]
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

[Hook]
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 love

[Verse 1]
When you was just a young’un, 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 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

[Chorus]
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 this corner tryna put it together
How to love, how to love

[Hook]
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 love, how to love

[Verse 2]
Ooohh, 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 listening
But I admire your poppin’ bottles and dippin’
Just as much as you admire bartending and strippin’
Baby, so don’t be mad, nobody else trippin’
You see a lot of crooks and the crooks still crook

[Chorus]
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 this corner tryna put it together
How to love, how to love

[Verse 3]
Ooohh, 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

[Chorus]
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 this 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
Yeahh, 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

Sorry the inappropriate parts.

The video follows the life of a mother, who is beaten by her boyfriend while her baby daughter watches. As the little girl grows older, she visits her father in prison, and then as a preteen, she is molested by one of her mother’s lovers. From there, the young lady, grows up to become a stripper and eventually a prostitute who contracts HIV.

The woman’s perception of the world has been mouleded by her experiences in life and what she has seen. these experiences has caused her to lack the knowledge of what affection and love is. We spoke in class about how knowledge can come about from life experiences and mistakes etc. however the lack of knowledge of something can also come about from these things and this song and music video shows that. Also one way of learning is by immitation, this is how we learn to talk and other things. The woman in the video has only been exposed to such a harsh life and her mother’s lifestyle that this is what she has immitated and learned.
