A Deeper Look Inside the Lyrics of…

A deeper look inside the lyrics of Russ Vitale’s song “Losin’ Control”.

[Hook x2:]
She’s fallin’ in love now
Losin’ control now
Fightin’ the truth
Tryin’ to hide
But I think it’s alright girl
Yeah, I think it’s alright girl

She’s falling but she doesn’t think he’ll catch her
Cause her last relationship was a disaster
Accusations everyday she didn’t know why
All her calls would be ignored he’s on his own time
Shoulda’ ended it before it started
All she ever got was broken hearted
He was cheating on her tryna’ flip it
Back on her like a victim
Now she’s all alone and starting over
Now she’s got baggage on her shoulder
But the new guy really loves her
She loves him but she doesn’t trust herself anymore

[Hook x2:]
She’s fallin’ in love now
Losin’ control now
Fightin’ the truth
Tryin’ to hide
But I think it’s alright girl
Yeah, I think it’s alright girl

Despite her past she can’t help the attraction
He tells her that he’s nothing like the last one
He redefines in every way what love is
She fell for him and hasn’t gotten’ up since
Every now and then she goes off though
Beating on his chest like a bongo
He understands she’s coming from a hurt place
Answers all the questions on her survey
Doesn’t get jealous, doesn’t break trust
Doesn’t call a hoe after hang ups
Gives her everything she ever wanted
And even though she still feels haunted

[Hook x2:]
She’s fallin’ in love now
Losin’ control now
Fightin’ the truth
Tryin’ to hide
But I think it’s alright girl
Yeah, I think it’s alright girl

I connect to this song in a deeper way then I could imagine. This song has been constantly running through my head because of how much of a connection I make with it.

It is telling a story of a girl who is falling in love trying to trust another guy. She is having trouble because she is used to blaming herself for her past relationships being ruined. She blames herself for not ending it before it started because all she ever got was broken hearted. He was cheating on her but tried to make it look like it was her fault. She was alone. She is starting over, but carries a lot of weight on herself. She is with a new guy who really loves her, but she is having problems trusting herself. No matter her past she can’t help but to fall for him. He explains to her he isn’t like the others. He shows her what love really is and she fell for him and hasn’t gotten up since. Every once in a while she blows up, screaming and crying uncontrollably. He understands where she is coming from and answers all her unrealistic questions. He doesn’t envy or break trust, he doesn’t dump her after arguments. He spoils her even though she still feels scared. Because she’s falling in love, losing control, fighting the truth, and trying to hide. But he accepts her anyway.

Coming from three past relationships that were the definition of harsh and haunting, to putting myself out there one more time. I have learned many lessons at a young age and now at nineteen years old I can’t believe how I got this far. I’ve carried the weight of my past relationships on my shoulders for years now and it still affects my life and relationship. Before I opened my heart up one last time to the guy who I plan to marry one day. I had learned finally who I was, how to trust myself, how to love myself, and who I was supposed to be. But when I let him into my life, I had to teach myself to trust him because of all the damage done before him. He repeatedly showed me he wasn’t like the others and he showed me what love really is. There are times we argue, but I know he understands it’s not his fault. Even though I ask him questions I know aren’t needed he still answers them all honestly. And even after almost two years I still hide fear deep down in my heart because it is all still new to me.
