One of the biggest blessings/curses of Drake‘s new album, Views, is that we get an intimate, detailed peek into his love life, which is as fascinating as it is heart-breaking.

Here are 11 lyrics from Views that reveal an incredible amount about Drake’s romantic life. (Warning #1: It may bum you out. Warning #2: It will have you craving cheesecake.)

The lyric: “I’ve stopped listening to the things you say/Because you don’t mean it anyway.”
What this tells us: He’s been hurt before. He’s sensitive. (Drake, if you’re reading this, we would mean all the things we would say to you, if given the opportunity to say stuff to you. Xoxo.)

The lyric: “This is not a fairytale/I already know how you like it/Take you to the mall and get you a new outfit.”
What this tells us: He’s dated gold diggers. He’s also realistic about love and why some women might want to take advantage of his purchasing power. Oh and he goes to the mall! So down-to-earth.

The lyric: “Why you gotta fight with me at Cheesecake/You know I love to go there/This a place for families that drive Camrys and go to Disney/They don’t need to know all of our business.”
What this tells us: Drake plans incredible dates. (If you’re reading any sarcasm here, you’re doing it wrong. Cheesecake Factory > all other dining establishments.)

The lyric: “How many girls have slept in this bed?/I say a different number than the one that’s in my head/Lying to protect you; I be doing that a lot.”
What this tells us: Drake has slept with quite a few women.

The lyric: “There’s more to life than sleeping in and getting high with you/I had to let go of us to show myself what I can do.”
What this tells us: Drake is looking for something serious. (Also we will definitely be using that break-up line; thanks for that.)

The lyric: “You don’t want to fall in love, I know/I’m not someone you should trust, I know.”
What this tells us: The man is nothing if not self-aware.

The lyric: “I see your girl all the time/I don’t know if she’s yours or mine.”
What this tells us: HE’S STILL GOT BEEF WITH MEEK. HE’S STILL GOT BEEF WITH MEEK. (And he still has feelings for Nicki.)

The lyric: “I dated women from some of my favorite movies/My exes made some of my favorite music.”
What this tells us: Nothing, absolutely nothing. Name names, Drake. Name names!

The lyric: “All of my ‘let’s just be friends’ are friends I don’t have anymore.”
What this tells us: If things between you and Drake end, they really end. Even though he may never get over it.

The lyric: “But you can’t just diss and come tell me sorry/You can’t listen to me talk and go tell my story.”
What this tells us: At least one woman he’s hooked up with has blabbed his secrets.

The lyric: “Why do I settle for women who force me to pick up the pieces?”
What this tells us: Drake should just date us. We would be very nice to him.
