Kanye West Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Why are you so paranoid
Don't be so paranoid
Don't be so
Baby, don't worry about it
Lady, don't even think about it
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong things

Tell me right now
You really wanna spend your whole life alone?
A little time out might do you good, might do us good
Before we be done for good
'Cause I could make it good I could make it hood
I can make you come I can make you go
I can make you high I can make you fly
Make you touch the sky hey maybe so
All of the time
You be up in mine checking through my cellphone baby no
You wanna kill the vibe on another night
Here's another fight oh here we go

Baby don't worry about it
Lady we'll go out to the floor
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

All of the time
You wanna complain about the nights alone
So now you're here with me
Show some gratitude leave the attitude way back at home
Yeah you see 'em look
Baby let 'em look give us cold looks 'cause we look cold
Yeah you heard about all the word of mouth
Don't worry about what we can't control
All the talk in the world lost in the world
Till you finally let that thing go
You wanna check in to the heartbreak hotel
But sorry we're closed

Baby don't worry about it
Lady we'll go out to the floor
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

Baby don't worry about it
Lady don't even think about it
You worry bout the wrong things, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing, the wrong thing
You worry bout the wrong thing

Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you
Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you




Anyway they don't know you like I do
They'll never know you

@@santiaguilsmia2511 BIBLE calls us all to be real, sober minded souls, who live holy lives on earth.
BIBLE calls nor expect nobody to be:
- religious of any kind
- monk
- nun
BIBLE expect us to turn our LACK OF KNOWLEDGE into KNOWLEDGE OF TRUTH (HOSEA 4:6)
Each human life on earth:
- repent
- BORN AGAIN and GO AND SIN NO MORE
- be baptised in HOLY SPIRIT /THE COMFORTER
- LIVE HOLY
= soul, after earthly death in HEAVEN. Easy logic, asks no degree in anything.

Bible calls us to give out RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT, no to keep our mouth shut and support everything with blind eyes and deaf ears.

See no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil – that old saying, it belongs to masons, am I right again? The vow of silence of theirs.

SOULS, dare to read and study BIBLE (KJV) and search about FREEMASONRY.

It's sad how barely anyone recognized how ahead of time this song and album was.

@sweetlife6299

+William Pope I like your profile pic

@marcopecorino9

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

@KaizerMan

The album was maybe ahead of its time seeing as it used 808s when only some people used it and now everyone does and it was very creative how Kanye used autotune and stuff. But this song isn't ahead of its time. It sounds like 80s synth pop or some old Daft Punk. Still a good song though

@FishiestFillet

i got so much love for this album

@andrewholland5004

rolling stone named it one of the most groundbreaking lps of all time

I just heard it for the first time and I thought the exact same thing. He's really ahead of his time.

@SwarlsBarkley

808s was so far ahead of its time it's ridiculous!
