Turn it up loudHahaha, ahahaha, hey manYou a little sucker for love,
right?Word up, hahahahahaI shoulda seenyou was trouble right
from the starrrrt, taught me so many lessonsHow not to mess with broken
hearts, so many questionsWhen this began we was the perfect match,
perhapswe had some problems but we workin at it, and nowthe arguments
are gettin loud, I wanna sayBut I can't help from walkin out just a little
wayJust take my hand and understand, if you could seeI never planned to
be a man it just wasn't meBut now I'm searchin for commitment, in other
armsI wanna shelter you from harm, don't be alarmedYour attitude was the
cause, you got me stressinSoon as I open up the door with your jealous
questionsLike where can I be you're killin me with your jealousyNow my
ambition's to be freeI can't breathe, cause soon as I leave, it's like a
trapI hear you callin me to come back, I'm a sucka for lovethat's right,
sucka for love[Chorus: Eric Williams]What you won't do,
do for loveYou tried everything, but you don't give up[repeat
2X]Just when I thought I broke away and I'm fellin happyYou try
to trap me say you pregnant and guess who the daddyDon't wanna fall for it,
but in this case what could I do? So now I'm backto makin promises to you,
tryin to keep it trueWhat if I'm wrong, a trick to keep me on and
onTryin to be strong and in the process, keep you goinI'm bout to lose
my composure, I'm gettin closeTo packin up and leavin notes, and gettin
ghostTell me who knows, a peaceful place where I can goTo clear my head
I'm feelin low, losin controlMy heart is sayin leave, oh what a tangle web
we weavewhen we conspire to conceive, and nowYou gettin calls at the
house, guess you cheatinThat's all I need to hear cause I'm leavin, I'm out
the do'Never no more will you see me, this is the endCause now I know
you've been cheatin, I'm a sucka for lovedamn, sucka for love... sucka for
lovesucka for love[Chorus]Now he left you with scars,
tears on your pillow and you still stayAs you sit and pray, hoping the
beatings'll go awayIt wasn't always a hit and run relationshipIt use to
be love, happieness and companionshipRemember when I treated you goodI
moved you up to hills, out the ills of the ghetto hoodMe and you a happy
home, when it was onI had a love to call my ownI shoulda seen you was
trouble but I was lost, trapped in your eyesPreoccupied with gettin tossed,
no need to lieYou had a man and I knew it, you told meDon't worry bout
it we can do it now I'm under pressureMake a decision cause I'm waitin, when
I'm aloneI'm on the phone havin secret conversations, huhI wanna take
your misery, replace it with happinessbut I need your faith in me, I'm a
sucka for lovesucka for love, know you ain't right G but yet I'ma sucka for
love[Chorus]I'ma sucka for love, sucka for loveSucka
for love[Chorus][Chorus]

    My InterpretationEveryone could relate to this song @ some point in time in their life~

    -People want to be loved but many times most people go into new relationships with emotional baggage from previous relationships: "I shoulda seen you was trouble right from the starrrrt, taught me so many lessons How not to mess with broken hearts"

    -However most people have faith when they enter into a new relationship that it would work: "When this began we was the perfect match,perhaps we had some problems but we workin at it"

    -But because the emotional baggage has not been dealt with it creates more problems in the new relationship: "and now the arguments are gettin loud, I wanna stay But I can't help from walkin out just a little way"

    -With the chaos in the new relationship then there are questions about commitment i.e. do you really want to be in a committed relationship with this particular person? : "Just take my hand and understand, if you could see I never planned to be your man it just wasn't me, But now I'm searchin for commitment, in other arms"

    -Then the blaming begins because no one wants to take responsibility for their faults in the relationship: "your attitude was the cause, you got me stressin, Soon as I open up the door with your jealous questions, Like where can I be? you're killin me with your jealousy! Now my
    ambition's to be free!"

    -However because there is a strong emotional attachment, although both people in the relationship are hurting they still feel an intense pull to keep going back to one another- why? Because of that need we all have to be loved and belong to someone special "I can't breathe, cause soon as I leave, it's like a trap I hear you callin me to come back, I'm a sucka for love that's right,sucka for love"

    And the rest of the song describes his reflection on relational ups & downs and the possibility of what their relationship could be if they but are will to have faith in their love for each other.

    General CommentDidn't even bother looking at the lyrics posted. No need to look at them, I know them by heart. This is one of Pac's best songs, released after he died. Not sure if he intended to use this beat or not, but I'll tell you what... the beat carries it's weight along with pac's vocals/lyrics.

    General CommentGreat song. I like how it goes full circle. At first he believes that his girlfriend is having an affair coz he picks up her phone and they hangs up. Then he splits up and at the end hes the one phoneing up and hanging up when her new man answers

    whatever, point of the song:
    Tupac is struggling with love, and relates his experiences.
