Mos Def - Love

Your rating:
They say the goodness in life belongs to those who believe
 So  I believe...YES!

 [Chorus] 2x
 I start to think  and then I sink
 Into the paper  like I was ink
 When I'm writing I'm trapped in between the line
 I escape when I finish the rhyme (aiyyo)

 My pops said he was in love when he made me
 Thought about it for a second  wasn't hard to see
 I could hear he was sincere  was a game of promotion
 The entire affair's probably charged wit emotion
 But love call your heart, I guess you got to persue
 12-11-73 my life is testament
 Praise the beneficent, element that rest
 Devoid in the form that make love manifest
 I spent my early years in Roosevelt Project
 It was a bright valley wit some dark prospects
 In '83, Venny C was the host wit the most
 I listened to the Rap Attack and held the radio close
 I listened to the Rap Attack and held the radio close
 This is far before the days of high glamour and pose
 Aiyyo power from the street light made the place dark
 I know a few understand what I'm talkin about
 It was love for the thing that made me wanna stay out
 It was love for the thing that made me stay in the house
 Spendin time, writin rhymes
 Tryin to find words that describe the vibe
 That's inside the space
 When you close yo' eyes and screw yo' face
 Is this the pain of too much tenderness
 To make me nod my head in reverence
 Should I visit this place and remember it?
 To build landmarks here as evidence
 Night time, spirit shook my temperment
 To write rhymes that portray this sentiment
 We live the now for the promise of the infinite
 We live the now for the promise of the inifinite
 And we believe in the promise (love, love *repeated*)
 Yes yes y'all and we don't stop because



 Chorus

 I got love, L-O-V-E and I be
 Love, L-O-V-E to MC
 Get love, L-O-V-E and I be
 Love, L-O-V-E I MC
 Get love, L-O-V-E and I be
 Love, L-O-V-E to MC
 Get love, L-O-V-E and I be
 The M-O-S-D-E-F-initely

 Check it out y'all, feel me out y'all
 Feel me out y'all, hear my out y'all
 Check me, out y'all
 Feel me out y'all, check it out y'all
 Now hear out (bounce) y'all
 Check me out y'all, feel me out y'all
 Check me out y'all, feel me out y'all
 Feel me out y'all (hear me bounce y'all)
 Check me out y'all, check it out y'all

 My folks said they was in love when they had me
 I take they love they made me wit to make rhymes and beats
 (Can you feel?) The raw deal, it's all wheel-driven
 Contemplate the essence of beats, rhymes and living
 Speech in line wit the rhythm, designed wit the rhythm
 Ears and eyes keepin good time wit the rhythm
 I shine wit the rhythm, the Black Star Gallactica
 Big number fleetin, we ancient like the Abbacca's
 After us, I see most proceed to be trees
 Sproutin leaves, given breeze to the we who believe
 I MC, which means I Must Cultivate the earth
 Back straight backs, hard beats and hard work
 I be the funky drummer to soften the hard earth
 (I mean) Pray Allah keep my soul and heart clean
 (I mean) Pray the same thing again for all my team
 ?Restorate? to Fort Green and on out to Queens
 Uptown to Boogie Down, yo just look around
 AND SHOOK UP THE WORLD!, like Ali in 6-3 (right)
 I'm reachin the height that you said cannot be
 I'm bringin the light but you said we can't see
 Saw the new day commin, and it look just like me
 Some burst through the clouds, my photo ID
 I bring light to your day and raise yo' degree
 The Universal Magnetic, you must respect it
 >From end to beginning, ? true and livin
 EVERY CHANGING, it was a state of magnificent
 Building it now for the promise of the infinite
 Building it now for the promise of the inifinite because

 Chorus

 I got love, L-O-V-E and I be
 Love, L-O-V-E to MC
 Get love, L-O-V-E and I be
 Love, L-O-V-E to MC
 Get love, L-O-V-E and I be
 Love, L-O-V-E to MC
 Get love, L-O-V-E and I be
 The M-O-S-D-E-F-initely
