Love Language by Talib Kweli

Damn! Im back on some love shit it seems. But dammit when you sit back and think about it...Love is strange. Mystifying even. There are a million songs that speak about love. This one is of my faves by one of favorite MC's. Check out the some of the lyrics yall....peep the chorus!

Love is blind, you just see bright light
You up in the club feelin' the night life, lookin' for the right type
You know the plan you had to conquer the world
Thinking you Scarface, looking for that perfect girl And now you found her
Started with romantic, then got to frantic
Then things thats normally small become gigantic
Now y'all sinkin like the Titanic here come the panic
Bein with you is like a habit without you I can't stand it
It's tragic when you wonder when you lost that magic
Without understanding that you never had it try to grab it
In the bed gettin a nut off, communication cut off
Getting mad cause you turned on wondering where she shut off
Constantly comparing you to someone in my past
We don't smile anymore, and we argue over cash
Advance to that physical shit See what happens if you keep talkin
See what happens if you lay a finger on me motherf...
Yo, see what I'm sayin' It's like one big mind game that everybody playin
(Men) say (Women) is trife, (Women) say (Men) is
We just don't understand our fundamental differences I'm still learning though, actually
I just do what come naturally, naturally, naturally

(Chorus)
L'amour n'a pas de, frontiere (Love has no boundaries)
Restes car je t'aime comme tu es (Stay because I love you as you are)
J'ai traverse l'ocean du verbe (I crossed an ocean of words)
Et je t'ai trouve (And I found you)

Women thrive on emotions, men refuse to acknowledge
So when we arguin nobody win
Words get in the way time and again
Sticks and stones break your bones words break your heart
Whether you in touch with that part or not say "word"
Words are weapons for the revolutionary
Used for evil make the situation very scary
Word up, but love is brave It flies in the face of fear
Yo, wherever you want to go love'll take you there
