When We Love
Jhené Aiko Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You're mine and I like it, yeah
You're fine, but besides that, I
See through to your heart
You lie, I don't mind it
That's just the kind of guy that you are

Tell me anything, everything, whatever, I wanna hear
It's the sweet little nothings that's all I need to keep me here
If you want me like you say you want me
Then you'd do whatever, yeah
Love me like you say you love me
We'll be down forever

Aye, aye, aye, aye

Don't lose me, don't lose me
Don't choose me, then use me
Just stay right beside me, oh
Don't you dare deny my love

Tell me anything, everything, whatever, I wanna hear
It's the sweet little nothings that's all I need to keep me here
If you want me like you say you want me
Then you'd do whatever, yeah
Love me like you say you love me
Then we'll be forever

Aye, aye, aye, aye

And I never knew
Never knew a love so good
Never knew
Never knew a love so good
Never knew, never knew
Never knew a love so good
Never knew, never knew
Never knew a love so
Never knew
Never knew a love so good
Never knew
Never knew a love so good
Never knew
Never knew a love so good
Never knew
Never knew a love so good

"What's wrong"
"Don't hurt me okay?"
"Man, chill
Look, you ain't got nothing to worry 'bout alright?"
"Alright"
"Come on sit down, hit this
It's nice, right?"
"Mmm, I like this"
"That right there, that's some sativa"




"Sativa"
"Mhm, just relax"
