Love 2 Fast
Steve Lacy Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I swear there's something in the wind outside today
And it ain't cool
Got me thinking 'bout how things decay
And about you

Uh, but I'll be fine, I have to set delay
Before I try to fall in love, not pain
Yes, I'll be fine
I just can't rush, not again
Not again, no, not again, uh

Fuck, why is falling in love so hard?
I think I just move too quickly
Based on the patterns I've been studying on myself
I've done the most scientific research and I think
That I should just take things a little slower
You know, I've learned a lot in experience
You know, I'm grateful to be in this place right now, ayy

I swear there's something 'bout a loss there is to gain
Perhaps a lesson
If you do it once, don't do it again
Unless it's destined, oh

But you'll be fine, you have to set delay
Before you try to fall in love, not pain
Yes, you'll be fine




You just can't rush, not again
Not again, no, not again

Overall Meaning

In "Love 2 Fast," Steve Lacy sings about the difficulty of falling in love and the pain that can come with it. The opening lines set a melancholic tone, as he reflects on the feeling of something being off in the air, perhaps signaling an impending change or loss. He then addresses his tendency to move too quickly when it comes to relationships, acknowledging the patterns he has identified in his behavior and the need to take things slower in order to avoid repeating past mistakes.


The chorus is a self-assurance that he will be fine, as long as he avoids rushing into love again. He questions why falling in love is so difficult, and reflects on the lessons he has learned through experience. In the second verse, he offers the same advice to a hypothetical "you," describing the potential for growth through the pain of loss and the importance of taking time to heal before trying to love again.


Overall, "Love 2 Fast" is a thoughtful meditation on the complexities of love and the self-awareness required to navigate its ups and downs.
