Drake - Take Care Lyrics (feat. Rihanna)

Play this song

"Take Care" is one of the most anticipated tracks on Drake's sophomore album (which will be released on November 15th, 2011). And since this song was so much awaited, Drake decided on an early release of the final, Rihanna assisted version so the fans can enjoy it until the official release of the new album. Riri and Drizzy sing over a piano and drum-patterned beat about one very special lost love and the song actually samples Jamie XX's remix of Gil Scott-Heron's "I'll Take Care of U" and Lesley Gore's "It's My Party".

Drake – Take Care Lyrics (feat. Rihanna)

Know you’ve been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
If you let me, here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

I’ve asked about you and they’ve told me things
But my mind didn’t change
I still the feel the same
A life with no fun, please don’t be so ashamed
I’ve had mine, you’ve had yours we both know
We know, they don’t get you like I will
My only wish is I die real
Cause that truth hurts, and those lies heal
And you can’t sleep thinking that he lies still
So you cry still, tears all in the pillow case
Big girls all get a little taste
Pushing me away so I give her space
Feelin’ with a heart that I didn’t break
I’ll be there for you, I will care for you
I keep thanking you, just don’t know
Try to run from that, say you’re done with that
On your face girl, it just don’t show
When you’re ready, just say you’re ready
When all the baggage just ain’t as heavy
And the parties over, just don’t forget me
We’ll change the pace and just go slow
Won’t ever have to worry,
You won’t ever have to hide

If you seen all my mistakes
So look me in my eyes

Cause if you let me, here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

It’s my birthday, I get high if I want to
Can’t deny that I want to, but I lie if have to
Cause you don’t say you love me
To your friend when they ask you
Even though we both know that you do (you do!)
One time, been in love one time
You and all your girls in the club one time
All so convinced that you’re following your heart
Cause your mind don’t control what it does sometimes
We all have our nights though, don’t be so ashamed
I’ve had mine, you’ve had yours, we both know
We know, You hate being alone
You ain’t the only one
You hate the fact that you bought the dream
And they sold you one
You love your friends but somebody shoulda told you somin’ to save you

Know you’ve been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
If you let me, here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

    For me, these lyrics are about a guy who is very much in love with a girl who has been heartbroken badly in her past relationships. She has been hurt so badly that she doesn’t trust anyone with her heart, not even herself, so she has tremendous trouble trusting this new guy with her heart. She loves him too but won’t admit it to herself because she has gave in before and it only lead to heartbreak.

    So the guy is trying to tell her, he will appreciate her and their bond because he has loved and lost (had his heart broken) too. He’s emphasizing that they both have been around the block and they both have enough experience in love to not take it for granted.

    Then he basically tells her that he loves her so much that he is willing to wait until she is ready to open her heart to him. This is a very nice song.
