The Lyrics Breakdown
Something’s got a hold on me
It’s cheap but it ain’t free
Love or somethin’ like it’s got a hold on me
Love or somethin’ damn near like it’s got a hold on me
Remember that if someone really wants you, he/she would actually put some effort to get your attention. He/she will make sacrifices for you. Furthermore, he/she would not just tell you that he/she wants you, instead, he/she would show you in every little way possible that he/she wants you.
May I ask you a question? What will you do if love hits you? Do you agree that love is an instrument for us to bring out the best version of ourself?
