[Verse 1:]
Go back in time when I feel her
She touching me, it's too familiar
The way she doing the things
She does exactly the way you used to (you used to)
Let me take a break, I need a breather
The way she moving, I can't believe now
She does exactly the same, I must be going insane (Oh)

[Chorus:]
Am I going crazy?
Do I need some therapy to get shorty out of my mind?
Girl, my head is racing
Heard shortys been needing the rest of my mind

Am I making love to you through her?
Am I make love to you through her?
Am I making love to you through her?
Love through her (love through her)

[Verse 2:]
Thought I left that part of life behind me
It's back to haunt every girl that loves me
Why can't she leave me alone
Can't believe every girl that I hold
I see you, I see you
The greatest times we had the best of
Push back rewind, but I can't delete her
Move forward into my life, I had a place and a time to apologize (to apologize)

[Chorus x2:]
Am I going crazy?
Do I need some therapy to get shorty out of my mind?
Girl, my head is racing
Heard shortys been needing the rest of my mind

Am I making love to you through her?
Am I make love to you through her?
Am I making love to you through her?
Love through her (love through her)

    Song MeaningThe meaning of this song is obvious...He's involved in a sexual relationship (with various girls) while simultaneously missing his previous love-life with one girl. Thus the question "Am I making love to you through her." I love this song, it brings back so many memories seeing how I did the same thing to my ex girlfriend. I tried to escape my memories/feelings for her through sex and it always seemed to fail. Instant gratification can sometimes be tempting, but it's only temporary. God bless!

    My InterpretationI think "Love Through Her" is about the Singer being with other girl and every time he's having sex with her, he keeps on thinking about him ex:

    (Go back in time when I feel her
    She touching me, it's too familiar
    The way she doing the things
    She does exactly the way you used to
    Let me take a break, I need a breather
    The way she moving, I can't believe now
    She does exactly the same, I must be going insane)

    I guess everything that his girl does reminds him of his ex, which obviously sucks for him:

    (Am I going crazy?
    Do I need some therapy to get shorty out of my mind?)


    Sad but great song by The Weeknd ;)

    General CommentI am a guy. But every single song by Abel makes my ears melt and my spine shiver.
    Here's my interpretation.

    [Verse 1:]
    Go back in time when I feel her
    She touching me, it's too familiar
    The way she doing the things
    She does exactly the way you used to (you used to)

    He is with a new girl but clearly he has not forgotten about his ex. He's beginning to do what we all do and notice how our new partner is different/similar from our former ones. She's very similar to his ex, which is maybe the only reason why he picked her?

    Let me take a break, I need a breather
    The way she moving, I can't believe now
    She does exactly the same, I must be going insane (Oh)

    He's taken aback at how similar she really is to his ex. The way she moves/the sex. Maybe he's just imagining all of this because he wants her to be his ex.

    [Chorus:]
    Am I going crazy?
    Do I need some therapy to get shorty out of my mind?
    Girl, my head is racing
    Heard shortys been needing the rest of my mind

    He's conflicted because this new girl is so similar to his ex.
    "Heard shorty's been needing the rest of my mind:" A double meaning that his current girlfriend needs the "rest of his mind" in other words, all of his attention.

    It could also mean that shorty (his ex) is taking the peace of his mind (rest of my mind) and it's ruining him.

    Am I making love to you through her?
    Am I making love to you through her?
    Am I making love to you through her?
    Love through her (love through her)

    He doesn't know if he is just using this new girl as a means of fulfilling his desire for his ex or if he just can't bring himself to love anyone new.

    [Verse 2:]
    Thought I left that part of life behind me
    It's back to haunt every girl that loves me

    The memories of him and his ex continue to haunt him and his future relationships.

    Why can't she leave me alone
    Can't believe every girl that I hold
    I see you, I see you

    She's like a ghost that won't relent. She is in every single girl he sees.

    The greatest times we had the best of
    Push back rewind, but I can't delete her
    Move forward into my life, I had a place and a time to apologize (to apologize)

    The greatest times of his life were spent with her and these memories cannot be forgotten.

    He states how she has moved forward into his life (from his past) and that he had the circumstances to apologize but we never know if he did it or not.

    [Chorus x2:]
    Am I going crazy?
    Do I need some therapy to get shorty out of my mind?
    Girl, my head is racing
    Heard shortys been needing the rest of my mind

    Am I making love to you through her?
    Am I make love to you through her?
    Am I making love to you through her?
    Love through her (love through her)

    General CommentThis is the most insulting song that only an insulting cad would appreciate. First and foremost, he's not making "love" to anyone if he's thinking about another. He's having sex with her, and there's a huge difference, but apparently the cad in the song is too arrogant or ignorant (or both) to get it. And if he thinks any decent, intelligent woman would be flattered by this song than he definitely is a fool. "Every girl he holds" would indicate he's either a male prostitute or should be one. If he's going to be a whore, than at least make some money off from lying on one's back. Prostitutes are obviously brighter than he. Is he going crazy? Dah....crazy as a lying, manipulative, fox. This song is so tiring and stupid. It should be marketed to sleazy insecure shallow losers who convince themselves they love their life and they love anyone they 'hold." Reality will catch up with jerks like this...just give it time.
