Kanye West – Bound 2 (Feat. Charlie Wilson)

Bound to falling in love…”

The only true love I’ve ever known is the love I have for my family and the love I have for music. Music is everything I know jack, it’s gotten me everything I have and dictated pretty much all the major decisions I’ve made in my life. I’m in a very serious, exclusive and committed relationship. But this morning I was listening to Yeezus the whole way through and as much as I like the album when Bound 2 came on it threw me through a rough loop man, it really did. It made me sad as hell.

I can’t pin point it but I remember not long ago when my entire being depended on my artistic expression. If I didn’t sit down and write something or record something I didn’t feel like myself. Every time I listened to music and discovered something new I was falling in love left and right with the world of artistic expression. I needed that, I was bound to it.

Bound to falling in love…”

These days the thought is always in the back of my mind but it’s not life and death like before man, it’s not the same. My friend said something insightful to me yesterday, she said that when you care about something you always want to keep things in good order and when that’s not the case it makes you blue as hell…

It’s always been just me and my music but since moving to LA my life has been non-stop and in the mix. I haven’t had the alone time I needed dealing with so many different people, projects etc and everything is just bottled up. I guess it feels like I have all this love for music I want to share with the world and I can’t get it out…
I know you’re tired of loving, with nobody to love…”

That really rocks me man because I can’t stop, I can’t stop wanting to share everything I feel. You ever feel like you have all this love to give and can’t figure out how to share it? I guess I’m finally in a place where I feel like I can be alone with music again and this Yeezus album came right in time to spark the flame, I’m starting to need that feeling again, it’s a beautiful thing. Do what makes you feel love man, that’s all you need. You could have a billion dollars and be blue as hell if you’re not doing what makes you fall in love, don’t ever forget that. Enjoy.
