Throw yo' hands up in the air
If ya know he love ya
Tell the DJ play this song right here
If ya know he love ya
Let, let, let, let me see you 2-step
If ya know he love ya
It don't matter if you by yourself
If ya know he love ya

If that boy don't love you by now
He will never ever, never ever love you
He will never ever, never ever love you
If that boy don't love you by now
He will never ever, never ever love you
He will never ever, never ever love you

I know you think that I just be trippin' on ya
Boy you see, this ain't how I normally be
But I can't help this jealousy
Ooh it's taking over me, ooh I'm falling way to deep
Without you by my side I feel like I can't eat or sleep

But I, gotta come down to earth, I don't wanna
But I, gotta let you go, but baby I dont wanna
And I, I gotta see, that you and me, ain't meant to be
That's why I tell myself

If that boy don't love you by now
He will never ever, never ever love you
He will never ever, never ever love you
If that boy don't love you by now
He will never ever, never ever love you
He will never ever, never ever love you

Baby, I can't help but fantasize
Wondering what it might be like
You and I sound so right
But I'mma let it go tonight, Ain't nothin'
Coverin' my eyes
Ain't gotta see it more than twice
I get it, I got it
Baby, baby

But I, gotta come down to earth, I don't wanna
But I, gotta let you go, but baby I dont wanna
And I, I gotta see, that you and me, ain't meant to be
That's why I tell myself

If that boy don't love you by now
He will never ever, never ever love you
He will never ever, never ever love you
If that boy don't love you by now
He will never ever, never ever love you
He will never ever, never ever love you
(Girl you better listen)

Alright, alright, alright, okay
I see ya point, I must admit
I grind, I grind, I grind all day
This paper's what I'm tryin' to get
Now normally when I'm paper chasing, I be having tunnel vision
And if it's really like that lady, just turn on ya television
And there go Young, I said there go Young, you tryin' to get it did
Just know I gets it done, she love the I cheat
She love the way I move, I sho, I show up to her
Shows wit bout 100 goons
Its black this, black that
Black card, black flags
I really hope that's money that y'all got off in them black bags (ha ha)
808's & heartbreak,
State troopers & interstates,
Giving me a bad vibe,
Guess I'm just a bad guy

Throw yo' hands up in the air
If ya know he love ya
Tell the DJ play this song right here
If ya know he love ya
Let, let, let, let me see you 2-step
If ya know he love ya
It don't matter if you by yourself
If ya know he love ya

    My OpinionThis song is true.

    I mean, you can't force someone to purely love you.

    If he still doesn't love you yet, well, he probably never will. No point in trying to get him to love you.

    Of course, you shouldn't give up loving them but you gotta realize sooner or later that they will never ever love you.

    General CommentI must say that this song is a real grower and so relevant to me right now. I love this person and there is this small chance that they may love me, but there is also that inevitable withdrawal, too. My favorite line is: "And I, I gotta see, that you and me, ain't meant to be", my friends are like "Just give it up, they don't want you, etc." but I'm like, "I just can't give up like that..."

    I agree with VeggiexDawg, that is exactly how I interpreted the song as well.

    General CommentI am not normally a fan of Ciara, but the first time I heard this song, it hit me hard. The lyrics and meanings are more than relateable to what I have going on in my life right now. Even hearing this song as I type this makes me think more and more about my situation. Also, I must say, even as a female myself, Ciara looks absolutely amazing in this video. I never paid much attention to how beautiful she really is.

    My Opinioni think evrybody has once been in a situation like this
    when i first herd this song it hit me so hard
    i couldent lsitin to the whole song
    but it came on the radio, and well, it reely does make sence
    as much as you love someone, if they dont love you back whats the point in still loving them?
    im not a fan of ciara and this song hasent changed my veiws on her at all
    ( i probebly like her evan less because this song made me relise its time
    to let go )

    General CommentI have this song in my computer since a while ago and I never paid much attention to it, I was looking for a song today and by chance I saw this one and I thought, 'what's this song? ooh yeah the one that says if that boy dont love you by now he will never ever love you.. omg wait a second I feel so related to that line' lol so I listened to it and I related to each and every line!! this song is amazing, but I don't think I'm ready to let him go and give up right now.. but then I think well if he doesn't want me yet I guess he never will, like why would he suddenly TRULY want to? I'll try again though, I'm sure I'll feel it when it finally is the moment to give up on him

    General CommentI agree with all of u. Its like when u kiss someone for the first time u know straight off if u feel something and if its one of those very rare connections u try make it work and if that person didn't feel the same way u did when it happened then u wont be able to change it. It is those people who u will remember forever no matter how much u try to forget them u simple can't there with u for the rest of ur life. I was broken hearted when i found out the guy i liked didnt like me in the same way i liked him, he always said he liked me but he could never explain how he liked me. this song really hits u if u are in a bad place (in a relationship)when u first hear it. its impossible to get over the people that dont return ur love.

    General CommentWow, this is a really late post but I came across this song since it's so relevant to me. The lyrics are pretty straight forward, there isn't much more to explain. You can't make someone love you, and you eventually have to get to the stage where you just let go of the person even if it hurts.
