10 (Surprisingly) Profound Kanye West Quotes About Love


He may be a dick, but his lyrics are profound.

Kanye West music is my guilty pleasure. I know, I know. I'm ashamed of my love for the beats and verses created by such a grade-A douchebag, but I simply cannot help it.

Ever since the days of "Through the Wire", I have continued to enjoy the music that Kanye West makes and find myself connecting to it. And though I will always remain #TeamSwift, I thought I would share love quotes in Kanye West's lyrics that I find really powerful. 

1. "Coldest Winter"

"If spring can take the snow away  
Can it melt away all of our mistakes  
Memories made in the coldest winter  
Goodbye my friend I won't ever love again" 

2. "Bound 2"

"Close your eyes and let the word paint a thousand pictures 
One good girl is worth a thousand bitches." 

3. "Heartless"

"You run and tell your friends that you're leaving me 
They say that they don't see what you see in me 
You wait a couple months then you gonna see 
You'll never find nobody better than me" 

4. "Talk About Our Love"

"The more they talk about our love 
The more they make it obvious 
The more they seem envious 
How can they talk about our love 
When they don't know one thing about (us) 
Instead they just running they mouth 
So all we do is tune them out." 

5. "Runaway"

"I-I-I-I did it, all right, all right, I admit it 
Now pick your next move, you could leave or live with' it." 

6. "See You In My Nightmares"

"I got the right 
To put up a fight 
But not quite 
Cause you cut off my light 
But my sight 
Is better tonight 
And I might see you in my nightmare 
Oh how'd you'd get there 
Cause we were once a fairy tale 
But this is farewell." 

7. "Blame Game"

"On a bathroom wall I wrote 
'I'd rather argue with you than to be with someone else' 
I took a piss and dismiss it like fuck it and I went and found somebody else 
Fuck arguing or harvesting the feelings, I'd rather be by my fucking self 
Till about 2 AM and I call back and I hang up and start to blame myself 
Somebody help." 

8. "Love Lockdown"

"I'm not lovin you, the way I wanted to 
I bet no one knew, I got no one new 
I know I said I'm through, but got love for you 
But I'm not lovin' you, the way I wanted to." 

9. "White Dress"

"We have problems but thats all in the past 
Everybody got problems baby I got a past 
Remember I used to do things that would make you laugh 
Like ordering girl drinks in a masculine glass." 

10. "Runaway"

"Never was much of a romantic
I could never take the intimacy
And I know I did damage, 
'Cause the look in your eyes is killing me, 
I guess you've got another advantage 
'Cause you could blame me for everything. 
And I don't know how I'm a manage, 
If one day you just up and leave."
