Cold Hard Love
Tory Lanez Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

So you took a chance with me 'cause you heard I'm cool
So let me show you why what you heard is true
And you're supposed to feel like it's all for you
And this is what we 'bout to do
I dance around my house to your favorite song
It's electrifying when you got my t-shirt on
And I wanna touch but I just stay cool
And this is what we 'bout to do

It don't take a lot to keep it unpredictable
As long as you let me love your heart and touch your soul
And when you give it up to me, you give your all
'Cause all that I give in return is
Cold, hard, hard love
Cold, hard, hard love

Put your records on, hot sex all up in the air
Raking up my fingers all up in your hair
Those eyes you do make my world blue
And what we 'bout to do is
Now take hold of me baby I feel it too
Never been this far from safe but I won't hold you
'Cause there's nothing left to hold true

It don't take a lot to keep it unpredictable
As long as you let me love your heart and touch your soul
And when you give it up to me, you give your all
'Cause all that I give in return is
Cold, hard, hard love
Cold, hard, hard love

Uh, what if I told you I ain't know love
And all the chicks I'm with I don't love
Shit still getting harder for me when I'm trying to find it alone
But I know I'm supposed to be grown up
It might be time a nigga owned up for this shit I once did
Games that I once played, shit I once said
No one's turning back on me now
Don't turn your back on me now
I need you more than ever
You make me wanna put this TV off the sound
And put these covers over us and take it slow forever
We go together, you so forever
Put the sunny in the stormy weather
I spent forever trying to figure out how I can fit up in your endeavors
You know I love you like a bow and arrow
Cupid shootin' who he aiming at
Who laying the body down where the statement at?
When love is lost who gonna show you where to claim it at?
You always told me you could show me how to claim it back

Cold hard love, cold hard love
There's nothing in this world that I
Nothing in this world
That I know, you

After our little robbery attempt on the East Side went bad, it was best to lay low




I kicked it at my girl's house that whole night
The plan was to smoke weed and get high, little did we know, that plan was soon to be cut short
