Heartless - The Weeknd

The ExperienceLow life for life 'cause I'm heartless... I'll never be more than this, so I might as well stop trying.
The Vibe: Despair.
The Topic: Failure.
The Value: Happiness.
The Tension: Tryna be a better man (I dreamt of better for myself and others) VS. But I'm heartless... (But I should never have reached so high...).

Music video: Superficial glam. Fake happiness. No relationships. An acid trip. And a broken man fleeing from nowhere to nowhere.

The Meaning of Heartless: A hard fall. The Weeknd embraces the low life. Not because it's a happy place. Because he doesn't feel like he deserves anything else. He wants to have a heart. But without one he can't rise to any challenge. He's heartless. And that's a tragedy.

Ask yourself: How do you resist despair if you keep falling?

Album: - (2019)

LYRICS:


Never need a b-tch, I'm what a b-tch needs
Trying to find the one that can fix me
I've been dodging death in the six-speed
Amphetamine got my stomach feeling sickly
Yeah, I want it all now
I've been running through the p-ssy, need a dog pound
Hundred models getting faded in the compound
Trying to love me but they never get a pulse down

'Cause I'm heartless
And I'm back to my ways 'cause I'm heartless
All this money and this pain got me heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless
Said I'm heartless
Trying to be a better man but I'm heartless
Never be a wedding plan for the heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless

Said I'm heartless
So much p-ssy, it be falling out the pocket
Metro Boomin, turn this h-e into a mosh pit
Tesla pill got me flying like a cockpit
Yeah, I got her watching
Call me up, turn that p-ssy to a faucet
Duffel bags full of drugs and a rocket
Stix drunk but he never miss a target
Photoshoots, I'm a star now
I'm talkin' Time, Rolling Stone and Bazaar now
Selling dreams to these girls with their guard down
Seven years I've been swimming with the sharks now

'Cause I'm heartless
And I'm back to my ways cause I'm heartless
All this money and this pain got me heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless
Said I'm heartless
Tryna be a better man but I'm heartless
Never be a wedding plan for the heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless

I lost my heart and my mind
I tried to always do right
I thought I lost you this time
You just came back in my life
You never gave up on me
I'll never know what you see
I don't do well when alone
You hear it clearly in my tone

'Cause I'm heartless
And I'm back to my ways cause I'm heartless
All this money and this pain got me heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless
Said I'm heartless
Tryna be a better man but I'm heartless
Never be a wedding plan for the heartless
Low life for life 'cause I'm heartless
