Locked Away - R. City ft. Adam Levine




The Experience: Would you still love me the same... You think this is it, but you still have that nagging doubt. Will it ever go away? Is it time to commit? What if they don't...



Music video: The lyric video, filmed in and around an old Volkswagon bug, portrays life as a journey you have to make together. You will both have moments of doubt - Rock City and Adam Levine sing the lyrics, but the girl is the one who writes them on the car's windows and headlights with pink lipstick. In the end, they both get in, and drive off together. The images that interrupt the lyric video halfway through and at the very end are strips of film with the writing - sound ratio, color, roll no., etc. - backwards for projection. It's not just a journey. It's also something that others will watch, and hopefully be able to imitate.

The Meaning of Locked Away: Do they love your money? Your style? Your success? Your strength? Or you? The only answer to that nagging doubt is the music itself - happy, self-assured, and serene. R. City and Adam Levine think she's a keeper.

Ask yourself: When can you be absolutely sure that you'll never be abandoned? Or do you simply keep trusting?

LYRICS:

[Adam Levine]
If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?

Right about now
If I judge for life, man, would you stay by my side?
Or is you gonna say goodbye?
Can you tell me right now?
If I couldn't buy you the fancy things in life
Shawty, would it be alright
Come on show me that you are down
Now tell me would you really ride for me
Baby tell me would you die for me
Would you spend your whole life with me
Would you be there to always hold me down
Tell me would you really cry for me
Baby don't lie to me
If I didn't have anything
I wanna know would you stick around

[Adam Levine]
If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?

Skiddley dong dong dong dine
All I wanna is somebody real who don't need much
A gal I know that I can trust
To be here when money low
If I did not have nothing else to give but love
Would that even be enough
Gal me need fi know
Now tell me would you really ride for me
Baby tell me would you die for me
Would you spend your whole life with me
Would you be there to always hold me down
Tell me would you really cry form
Baby don't lie to me
If I didn't have anything
I wanna know would you stick around

[Adam Levine]
If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?

Tell me tell me would you want me
Tell me tell me would you call me
If you knew I wasn't ballin'
Cause I need girl who's always by my side
Tell me tell me do you need me
Tell me tell me do you love me
Or is it just tryna play me
Cause I need a girl to hold me down for life

[Adam Levine]
If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?

[Adam Levine]
If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?
If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn't be strong
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?
