"If You Love Me" as written by Bobby F. Ervin, Steven J. Ettinger, Dwayne Emil Simon, Darryl La Mont Pierce and James Todd Smith....
Ooh yeah, yoo hoo

I don't want to rain on this parade
But I'm starting to question the love that was made
I'm not looking for just an affair
I want a love that is based on truth not just dare

You will not hurt my pride
If right now you decide
That you are not ready to settle down
But if you want my heart
Then it's time that you start
To act like you're mine in the light and the dark

If you love me, say it
If you trust me, do it
If you want me, show it
If you need me, prove it

I don't want to rain on this parade
But I'm starting to question the love that was made
I'm not looking for just an affair
I want a love that is based on truth not just dare

You will not hurt my pride
If right now you decide
That you are not ready to settle down
But if you want my heart
Then it's time that you start
To act like you're mine in the light and the dark

I don't want to rain on this parade
But I'm starting to question the love that was made
I'm not looking for just an affair
I want a love that is based on truth not just dare

I don't want to rain on this parade
But I'm starting to question the love that was made
I'm not looking for just an affair
I want a love that is based on truth not just dare

I don't want to rain on this parade
But I'm starting to question the love that was made
I'm not looking for just an affair
I want a love that is based on truth not just dare

You see now actions speak louder than words
So don't just say things that I've already heard
Don't want your body without your soul
I don't want a love who will come here and go

Oh I, oh I, I want to touch you baby
And spread my love all around you, honey
And if you come, you gotta show, baby
True love to share
Ooh yeah, my sweet baby

    General CommentOh... I always thought the lyrics went a bit more like this:

    "I'm not looking for just anything
    Want a love that is based on truth, not just dating"

    "To act like you're mining a light in the dark"

    "Don't just say things that I've already heard of"

    "And if you care, you gotta show it baby"

    "True love will shine"

    o_O How odd.

    Well, anyway the song is pretty self-explanatory. What I heard seems a little deeper than the written lyrics, though.. a woman wanting a man to prove that he really loves her, who is willing to search for good in all the bad, and that if he can make it through the love with prevail. Right? Maybe not..
