M.c. k~swift - Love gone wrong

You mad at the woman cuz she act like you
Sexually free to fuck who she attracted to
You act like you don't care
But you can't side the truth inside
So weakly you choose to lie to yourself
And slide on to the next tryin' to flex
Like your mind not all on your ex
And now you vexed
Cuz you can't control her voice, her choice
Her boisterous attitude
Or moistures when she in the mood
It's misogyny
Honestly, I'm speakin' to myself
In a not distant past, I was something else
I wasn't conscious of my thought patterns
I really believed I couldn't hurt a woman if she wasn't being battered
I offered equal treatment to bring her nearer
But I didn't love the person in the mirror
Placing my self esteem somewhere between my wallet and my dick
And half the time, my wallet wasn't holding shit

This is a love gone wrong
Love gone wrong
This is a love gone wrong
Love gone wrong

I swore up and down that I loved women but truthfully
What I loved was the things they would do for me
Saw myself as God looking at the Earth
A beautiful creation but I'd always come first
From religion to politics, men are the leaders
You never need to hear her
Never need to see her
Never recognize her
Not ever in life
Even in this song, she's just a poetic device
A radical shift is necessary
If I'ma commit to not treatin' women secondary
I'ma have to do some diggin' way down the core
Cuz in my mind, women are either madonnas or whores
Your favorite rapper prob'ly doesn't think different
Conscious brothers be the same as street niggas
We inherit sexism from society
But I'm responsible to get it from inside of me


This is a love gone wrong
Love gone wrong
This is a love gone wrong
Love gone wrong

I tried to put myself in her shoes
Nobody likes to feel used
I didn't give a fuck
That I didn't mean to hurt her isn't worth a mention
If I overstand that impact supercedes intention
Contradiction in the shit I'm speakin' now
But I can't correct my actions without understanding how
I got to be so callous
Sensitivity is a challenge
Yeah, I open up at times but it's totally out of balance
Empathy for me doesn't come naturally
But if I practice I have it in high capacity
I feel more comfortable in apathy
Cuz being vulnerable was never depicted as what a man should be
Not in my family
Not in too many others
My neighborhood was comprised of nothing but hard brothers
For years I've been bull headed with thick skin
I don't wanna be the way I've been

This is a love gone wrong
Love gone wrong
This is a love gone wrong
Love gone wrong

Love gone wrong
Love gone wrong
This is a love gone wrong
