Lowkey - Special Lyrics




If you don't respect yourself, no one's gonna respect you
If you don't love yourself, no one's gonna love you

It's a special kind of love, a very special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love, yeah
It's a special kind of love, a special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love

[Verse 1:]
First verse go's out to the girls, be proud of yourself
But don't just take pride in your outer shell
They take mens advances for granted
Cause it's common that we bother them
That's why so many young women can't take a compliment
You'd probably get put off if I called you
And probably get turned on if I ignored you
Make up caked up to cover up what's under there
All your facebook friends see pics of you in your underwear
He treats you like a princess, your not impressed
The truth is you'd probably like him more if he did less
You change the colour of your hair and the colour of your eyes
When will you realise that this stuff is a diguise
I sympathise certainly, seeing Jordan on tv mentally legitimise surgery
You'll only be truly loved by someone else, when you learn to respect and to love yourself

It's a special kind of love, a very special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love, yeah
It's a special kind of love, a special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love
It's a special kind of love, a very special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love, yeah
It's a special kind of love, a special kind of love

[Verse 2:]
Second verse go's out to the males of the species
The ones who've got different women for each week
What's next? I'll break down the player complex
And tell you what the motive behind it is cause it's not sex
Most people at some point got their heart broke
Misery loves company some people just can't cope
A man that hops beds cause he's scared to sleep alone
Is the same as a loose women that can't keep 'em closed
Your both in the same boat, this is what you need to know
A man gets called a player, as for the woman she's a hoe
The truth is they both are insecure people trying to mend their broke hearts
If you brag that you've slept with thousands of girls
All that tells me is that you don't value yourself
You'll only be truly loved by someone else, when you learn to respect and to love yourself

It's a special kind of love, a very special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love, yeah
It's a special kind of love, a special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love
It's a special kind of love, a very special kind of love,
A very very special kind of love, yeah
It's a special kind of love, a special kind of love

  2. Keith cridz

    only just discovered him in the last year what a guy unbelievable talent very clever love this guy

  3. tom186i

    It's funny because I discovered Lowkey quite a few years ago and loved him pretty much after the second track that I heard and respected everything he rapped about, but, for some reason never went onto his Wikipedia page.
    It turns out that we were born on exactly the same day.

    Vlad the Inhaler

    Wow theres almost a one in 356 chance of that happening well done

  4. Pete's lens view

    We need Lowkey back.

    Serina

    he's back!

    Pete's lens view

    He sure is and his performance in London on the 18th of September was incredible!

  5. austin atkinson

    Lowkeys music breathes so many truths, on so many different level's. I truly hope you come back one day Lowkey, but regardless of whether you do or dont, your music will always live on

  6. nathan robson

    You probably get *put off* if I called you,
    and probably get *turned on* if I ignore you.

    Special Kinda Thug!!! Lol

  11. r3mote

    I feel ripped off that I only discovered Lowkey at 35yo. Maybe I wasn't ready, until now. Thankful he makes music though and it was put before my eyes and ears. 

    Bobstar Bobby

    im 13-19 and i want more of his music. trust me finding him was probably the best thing.

    Bobstar Bobby

    why not.

  12. dmxfan454

    "Don't just take pride in your outer-shell" Yea brotha hopefully the chicks be hearin u here lol

  13. Derek Thomas Lirio

    I've been listening to Lowkey for a while, and I've heard him speak multiple times. Trust me, he'll definitely be back to making music. In fact, I think he's released songs this year already.

  14. Derek Thomas Lirio

    Real recognize real, and this, is as real as it gets.

    Lowkey, much respect. Making music that's of such intellectual mass, is of much more value that going platinum or double platinum. I've seen platinum artists, they're as talented as wooden puppets.

  15. BABA1

    realist shit

  16. Tom Bailey

    I know a girl who struggles on so many fronts, Lowkey has inspired me to help her turn her life around, Thank you man, from the both of us <3

  36. brynios

    If only more people could hear this, this is a song that could change the world. I have never heard so much truth in a song.
    So many people could benefit from hearin this tune and im sure many people have, myself included.

  37. Alerialope

    It's a shame that so many are so busy with their apperance and how many they've taken to bed. Should wish those people get to hear this what Lowkey sings about! To be well with yourself without the need of all the external things is the receipt to a good life!

  38. a b
