"My Love" as written by Timothy Mosley, Nate Hills, Clifford Harris and Justin Timberlake....
If I wrote you a symphony
Just to say how much you mean to me (what would you do)
If I told you you were beautiful
Would you date me on the regular (tell me would you)
Well baby I've been around the world
But I ain't seen myself another girl (like you)
This ring here represents my heart
But there's just one thing I need from you (saying I do)

Because, I can see us holding hands
Walking on the beach our toes in the sand
I can see us on the country side
Sitting in the grass laying side by side
You can be my baby
Let me make you my lady, girl you amaze me
Ain't gotta do nothin crazy
See all I want you to do is be my love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
Ain't another woman that could take your spot
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
Ain't another woman that could take your spot
My love, my love, my love, my love

Now if I wrote you a love note
And made you smile with every word I wrote (what would you do)
Would that make you wanna change your scene
And wanna be the one on my team (tell me would you)
See what's the point in waiting anymore
'Cause girl I've never been more sure (that baby it's you)
This ring here represents my heart
And everything that you been waiting for (just saying I do)

Because, I can see us holding hands
Walking on the beach our toes in the sand
I can see us on the country side
Sitting in the grass laying side by side
You can be my baby
Let me make you my lady, girl you amaze me
Ain't gotta do nothin crazy
See all I want you to do is be my love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
Ain't another woman that could take your spot
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
Ain't another woman that could take your spot
My love, my love, my love, my love

It's time to get it jt
I don't what she hesitatin' for man

Shorty, cool as a fan on the move once again
But he still has fam from peru to japan
Listen baby, I don't wanna ruin your plan
But if you got a man, try to lose him if you can
'Cause the girls really wild, throw they hands up high
When you wanna come kick it wit a stand up guy
You don't really wanna let the chance go by
'Cause you ain't seen wit a man so fly
Friends so fly I can go fly private, 'cause I handle mine
B.I., they call me candle guy, simply 'cause I am on fire
I hate to have to cancel my vacation so you can't deny
I'm patient, but I ain't gonna try, you don't come, I ain't gonna die
Hold up, what you mean, you can't go, why?
Me and your boyfriend, we ain't no tie
You say you wanna kick it, when I ain't so high
Baby, it's obvious that I ain't your guy
Ain't gonna lie, I feel your space
But forget your face, I swear I will
Same mark, same bullet anywhere I chill
Just bring wit me any pair, I will

Because, I can see us holding hands
Walking on the beach our toes in the sand
I can see us on the country side
Sitting in the grass laying side by side
You can be my baby
Let me make you my lady, girl you amaze me
Ain't gotta do nothin crazy
See all I want you to do is be my love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
Ain't another woman that could take your spot
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
My love (so don't give away)
Ain't another woman that could take your spot
My love, my love, my love, my love

    General CommentThe arrangement of this song and TI's part lead me to believe this song is more about courtship/seducing a woman with words. I would say it seems Justin is describing the experience of meeting a beautiful woman, and wanting her to be his, mostly in a sexual way. The things in the song ( what if I wrote you a symphony, love note, etc) are the things he would say to try and seduce her with his words.

    General CommentWow this is definatly one of his best songs. the beat is awesome and makes the song catchy. Its a very sweet song, perfect for an engagment. But i think TI really killed it. His rap kinda burned the whole commitment meaning and turned it into another player/sleepwithmenow song.

    General CommentIt used to be significant I suppose, reminds me of a whirlwind romance, I think this song is quite ironic though, Justin is being really romantic and proposing or whatever
    And in TI's rap he says I’m patient, but I ain’t gon' try
    You don’t come, I ain’t gon' die and And forget your face, I swear I will! Just think it's amusing!

    General CommentThis is what I think.

    A man loves a woman. Or at least he thinks he does. JT and TI represent two competing halves of the man's psyche. JT's lyrics are about the heady sensation of being in love, and the rush of wooing her. He's using lots of clichéd courting imagery; the "symphony", "love notes", long "walks on the beach"/in "the countryside", and even proposing to her. His singing is high, floaty and melodic, evocative of the high-handed and stereotypically "lovey" mood he describes. It is romantic, but unrealistic - this half of the man's mood is naive, and even as childish as an appeal of "Would you date me on the regular?"

    However, TI gives the harsh voice of reason, rapidly and deeply cutting through with the reality of the situation; the man is successful, and there are plenty of other women out there. He is even frustrated by the subject's inability to comprehend this. Contrasting with the floaty falsetto of JT's lyrics, TI raps quickly and with a deeper tone of voice. While JT is all about the woman, TI is realistic, and takes into account his own success.

    The conclusion of this internal argument is absent - the battle will rage within the man, leaving only an ironic echo of the request; All he wants her to do is be his love.

    General CommentThis should have been the first single off the new album.

    Corrections welcome.

    General CommentI dont think that it should be the first single off the album. I think that the idea of sexyback is to introduce his concept on the new album. i think that his whole album is sorta his take on what music is going to be like after he brings "sexy" back into the music world. (if that is possible) If My Love came out as the first single, I don't think it would have put him in the right direction. It would be like....."4 years and he could only come up with a techno-pop love song with a famous rapper on it?" My Love is an amazing song and I think it's really crazy but I think SexyBack set a standard that we weren't expecting this time around. Now that we know what to expect, My Love will complement the new sound he's put out there. I do think that this single will make more waves than sexyback.....it deserves it.

    General Commentand that part that says "and you know.. "
    it's actually, to my understanding at least, "ain't another woman that could take this from my love"
