Would you believe me if I said I'm in love?
Baby, I want ya
A subtle double entendre. The girl can either be a real female Cole is trying to court, or the Hip Hop industry.
Seeing as he’s risen through to the game facing trials, It would make sense that he really appreciates his position, and wants the people to want him the way he wants to perform for them. Both courting the girl and writing music have kept him up many nights, and he wants to exemplify to the audience that he is strong, having the ability to still love after all of the challenges he has faced.
