Common - Love Is... lyrics

Your rating:


(Yeah, Love is Love.

God is Love.) 3X 


How beautiful Love can be / 

On the streets love is hard to see / 

Its a place I got to be / 

Loving You is Loving Me.

How beautiful Love can be / 

On the streets love is hard to see / 

Gotta reach that frequency / 

Loving You is Loving Me.

1st Verse:

Yeah, you know what love is / 

Even found it on the ground where the thugs live /

My man had to dig deep to find his / 

Couldn't sleep cause on the real he had 5 kids /

Live nigs, real niccas express and chase it / 

In crap games, black dames and big faces /

Cases in court, Fam showing loving support / 

You and your baby's mom thought that Love was a sport /

As men we were taught to hold it in / 

That's why we don't know how ‘til we older men /

If Love is a place, Ima go again / 

At least now, now I know to go within /

At times it can take ya for a spin / 

Heartbreak hotel then you're home again /

I seen Love make a nicca soul pretend/ 

like a story that he don't want to end /


2nd Verse: 

It's all Love where we come from / 

In the hood Loved we was told to run from / 

That same hood where the gun sung / 

We holla Love hoping it become one / 

Crack got so many lives undone / 

From lack of Love many hide, some run / 

I knew this girl with a son who dreamt of acting in plays / 

Demonstration with a man had her trapped in a maze /

Tryin to find herself to regain much of that she had gave / 

Love can free us to which some react as a slave / 

Funny, we love em more when they relaxed in a grave /

Wonder if a thug is raw, or is he acting afraid? /

Everybody loves somebody but I attract shade /

Heard of the love of money, but compassionate pays / 

Talk about it with my youth so she understand / 

What it is to be loved by a man. (Unnh!)


3rd Verse:

Some say that I'm a dreamer cause I talk about it often / 

Seen the hardest niccas soften with his homie in a coffin /

We walk in, stand and fall in it / 

With the right companion, we all in it / 

Mary sang a song about it /

Having broad limits in the game of life /

It's the scrimmage / 

Reminiscing on letters I wrote in my small days / 

A letter to the people.. “Love always”!!
