Hold On, We're Going Home - Drake feat. Majid Jordan




The Experience:
I think there's something baby. This love feels like it can go places - I  want your hot love, I know exactly who you could be... And Drake jumps straight to taking it all the way: It's hard to do these things alone, hold on, we're going home.

Music Video:
Miami, 1985. Drake's girlfriend gets kidnapped by his rival. He and his team of gangsters go out to get her back. (Despite the AK-47s, there's no on-screen blood. Took fair talent from the director to do that.)

My Take:
A mixed bag. On one hand, Drake promises he'll love endlessly, and you're the one. On the other hand, he's got his eyes on you, on your hot love and emotion. He makes the jump to we're going home. Will he keep that promise? I don't deny that love-at-first-sight can last endlessly. But does sex-at-first-sight last forever? You decide. 

Ask Yourself:
Why is it that the first thing a guy sees in a girl is hot love and emotion? How should the girl react to that kind of initial interest? Should the first step in their relationship be we're going home?

LYRICS:
I got my eyes on you
You're everything that I see
I want your hot love and emotion
Endlessly, I can't get over you
You left your mark on me
I want your hot love and emotion endlessly

Cause you're a good girl and you know it
You act so different around me
Cause you're a good girl and you know it
I know exactly who you could be
Just hold on we're going home
Just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
Just hold on we're going home

I got my eyes on you
You're everything that I see
I want your hot love and emotion
Endlessly, I can't get over you
You left your mark on me
I want your hot love and emotion endlessly

Cause you're a good girl and you know it
You act so different around me
Cause you're a good girl and you know it
I know exactly who you could be
Just hold on we're going home
Just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
Just hold on we're going home

You're the girl
You're the one
Gave you everything I love
I think there's something, baby
I think there's something, baby

You're the girl
You're the one
Gave you everything I love
I think there's something, baby
I think there's something, baby

Cause you're a good girl and you know it
You act so different around me
Cause you're a good girl and you know it
I know exactly who you could be
Just hold on we're going home
Just hold on we're going home
It's hard to do these things alone
Just hold on we're going home
