Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah

I usually love sleepin' all alone
This time around, bring your friend with you
But we ain't really gonna sleep at all
You ain't gon' catch me with them sneak pictures, sneak pictures
In my city I'm a young god
That pussy kill be so vicious
My god white, he in my pocket
He get me redder than the devil 'til I go nauseous

She asked me if I do this every day, I said, "Often"
Asked how many times she rode the wave, not so often (baby)
Bitches down to do it either way, often
Baby, I can make that pussy rain, often
Often, often, girl, I do this often
Make that pussy poppin', do it how I want it
Often, often, girl, I do this often
Make that pussy poppin', do it how I want it
Often

Infatuated by the fame status
She wanna ride inside the G-Class grey 'matic (oh)
I come around, she leave that nigga like he ain't matter
That girl been drinkin' all day, need to change bladder
She's just happy that the crew back in town
She 'bout to go downtown for a whole hour
If I had her, you can have her, man, it don't matter
I'm never sour, I'm just smokin' somethin' much louder

She asked me if I do this every day, I said, "Often"
Asked how many times she rode the wave, not so often (she rode the wave)
Bitches down to do it either way (baby), often
Baby, I can make that pussy rain, often (baby, I can make that pussy rain)
Often, often, girl, I do this often
Make that pussy poppin', do it how I want it
Often, often, girl, I do this often
Make that pussy poppin', do it how I want it
Often

Ooh, the sun's risin' up
The night's almost up
The night's almost done
But I see your eyes
You wanna go again
Girl, I'll go again
Girl, I'll go again

She asked me if I do this every day, I said, "Often"
Asked how many times she rode the wave, not so often
Bitches down to do it either way, often (bitches down to do it)
Baby, I can make that pussy rain, often
Often, often, girl, I do this often
Make that pussy poppin', do it how I want it
Often, often, girl, I do this often
Make that pussy poppin', do it how I want it
Often

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah




Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah

Seneler sürer her günüm
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Yalnız gitmekten yorgunum
Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Seneler sürer her günüm

@JeanPierreBro

"Seneler sürer her günüm"
"Yalnız gitmekten yorgunum"

This is a sample of Turkish singer Nükhet Duru song “Ben Sana Vurgunum” (I Am in Love with You). She’s singing a poem written by Turkish poet Sabahattin Ali. Translated into English, she says:

Each day goes on for years
I’m tired of being alone

The Weeknd is such a lyrical genius



@georgerevell5643

There is so much more genius hidden in this song that encapsulates with intense musical beauty ultimately corrupted extatic bliss, than people realize. Allow me to explain. The lyrics that the Weeknd and his team have chosen to sample OFTEN (pun intended) in the song translated to english reads:
"Every single day of mine lasts for years
I am tired of walking alone
Do not think I am upset with you
I am still in love with you

Even if I smile to others
Even if I stay away from you
Even if I know you do not love me
I am still in love with you

When my head crossed over the mountains,
All my friends got behind
Come my beloved, come my brother,
I am still in love with you

My heart was a lover to your heart.
They felt the same things.
Our feet were in harmony.
I am still in love with you.

I was pushed and kicked away.
I was burned on the day I was born.
I trusted only you,
I am still in love with you."

All the while, The Weeknd sings with the dark beauty of an evil demi god about his intense passion for drug abuse and casual sex.

what does it all mean?

By sampling the above lyrics he is cleverly hiding from the average listener the tragedy of much of his early life, including unfair psychological trauma that corrupted him and how drugs and sex is the place where he ultimately found a way to make life at times heavenly and how awfully this contrasts with his tragic failure to connect with the world around him. It further implies that even though he suffers terrible missery when he's in withdrawl or coming down or even just sober and celebate, these cruely subjectively long periods of awful suffering is not enough to turn him away from his intense love of decadent delgihts that draws him like a moth to the flame to that devilish moon just over the horizon of the dark and twisted inner world he endures when low. This is beacuse he knows he will choose to experience it all again when he gets back to the nervous system reward circuit hacking experience of using drugs after a period of sobriety and that all the suffering is worth it because of this and because he was never happy before drugs in the first place and doesn't believe he ever could be.

Therefore despite that his amazing voice expresses a serene, tranquil, blissful, joyous experience, the song is EXTREMELY DARK.

Now you know why you enjoy this song more than you could logically explain to yourself due its intentionally deceptive simplicity.
