To Answer You, R. City and Adam Lavigne

My cousin made me listen to this song called ‘Locked Away’ by R. City featuring Adam Lavigne. And it hit home. I felt tremendous amount of guilt and shame. I mean, the song pretty much implied that I should stay with someone no matter what, and well, that simply isn’t the case with me. So, I decided to break it down, and post my answer to all these questions the two of them ask in the song. I am hoping people have similar answers to mine, or I’d be a horrible, horrible human being.

Not that I care much.

Here are the lyrics, and my answers. Let me know yours too!

If I got locked away
And we lost it all today
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?

Eh? It really depends on the crime. You got locked up because the country we live in is a homophobic nation-state with laws criminalising homosexuality and you’re a lesbian/ bisexual? I’m going to love you the same. You got locked up for murder? Probably not going to love you as much. So you know, depends.

If I showed you my flaws
If I couldn’t be strong
Tell me honestly would you still love me the same?

Define flaws, then we talk. But I don’t expect you to be strong all the time, I really don’t. I’ll love you more if you’re real and true to me, rather than put up an act of being this Greek God.

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?

I’ll tell you after knowing what this thing is about?

If I couldn’t buy you the fancy things in life
Shawty, would it be alright

Oh hell yeah, you don’t have to buy anything for me. Don’t you see me going through college? All of this is to get a job and get money and get my Dior Addict perfumes myself. I need little things from you, like unexpected hugs and cooking me food and we’re good to go.

Come on show me that you 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

I shall do all of the above (and more) if you love, respect and trust me, and I reciprocate the feelings. But, isn’t that rather obvious? Why do we even need to ask this question? Man, don’t go around wasting my time. Also, we really need to talk about being very extreme with these questions.

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

Wow, you know when we have assignments/ papers to submit worth 5000 words but don’t have enough material, we paraphrase and elaborate and give examples for every single thing? That is exactly what is happening right now. Also, if you want to, refer to my answers above because I’m not repeating myself.

Blah. Same. Every single line came back to being the same, but the answers to all of them are written above, dear R. City and Adam Lavigne. Also, loving the accent.

Mandatory disclaimer: I don’t own the song, the lyrics, the composition. Nothing. Nada. I just copy pasted them off google, since I’m too lazy to type them myself. However, if any copyright owners want this content off this website, please tell me. I will take it off. It’s not like anyone reads this anyway. If I may add, copyright people, if you found this somehow, you need to find some more productive things to do. And also, please don’t shut this website down. Like plij.

P.s. Adam Lavigne has a beautiful voice. *fan girl squeal*
