Love Lockdown- Kanye West (2009)

“I’m not loving 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 you never know, never never know/Never know enough, ‘til it’s over love/‘Til we lose control, system overload/Screaming, ‘No, no, no, n-noooo!’/I’m not loving 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.”

You know what really sucks about going back and listening to this song? Realizing that at one time even Kanye felt as if he was the sidepiece or the secret lover no one could know about.

Heartless- Kanye West (2009)

“I won’t stop, won’t mess my groove up/Cause I already know how this thing go/You run and tell your friends that you’re leaving me/They say that they don’t see what you see in me/You wait a couple of months, then you gon see/You’ll never find nobody better than me.”

One word: perseverance. The odds (and friends) were against him but Ye wound up with his “trophy.”

Flashing Lights- Kanye West featuring Dwele (2007)

“She don’t believe in shooting stars/But she believe in shoes and cars/Wood floors in the new apartment/Couture from store’s departments”

We don’t know Kim on a personal level, but it’s safe to say her shoe game is pretty serious AND if you listen to the whole song, you’ll get a feel as to how things were in Kanye’s love life at the time- Kim or no Kim.
