[Verse 1:]
So many things I've got to tell you
But I'm afraid I don't know how
Cause there's a possibility
You'll look at me differently
Ever since the first moment I spoke your name
From then on I knew that by you being in my life
Things were destined to change cause......

So many people use your name in vain
Those who faith in you sometimes go astray
Through all the ups and downs the joy and hurt
For better or worse I still will choose you first

[Verse 2:]
Many days I've longed for you
Wanting you
Hoping for the chance to get to know you
Longing for your kiss
For your kiss, for your touch, for your essence (your beautiful essence)
Many nights I've cried from the things you do
Felt like I could die from the thought of losing you
I know that you're real
With no doubt or no fears
Or no questions

At first you didn't mean that much to me
But now I know that you're all I need
The world looks so brand new to me
Now that I found love
Everyday I live for you
And everything that I do I do it for you
What I say is how I feel so believe it's true
You got to know I'm true, love

    General CommentI believe that he's not only singing to a "love" he once had... but to the actual word love. "So many people use your name in vain" is soooo true, how many people do we all know who have uttered those words and didn't mean them! Its a horribloe thought, yes I know! =p But seriously, i love this song.. because he is singing from his heart to his heart. LOVE... gotta love it!

    General CommentPer an interview that he gave, Musiq stated he was speaking to Love, as if it were a person. (kind of like he was writing it a letter) That is what I had gotten from it, but I wasn't too sure, until I read the article. I had heard some people interpreted that he was speaking of 'God', makes sense, 'God is Love'. Others interpreted it as a present relationship, also, untderstandable. I do like, though, that it is an actual conversation with "love" itself. Gives it a deeper and more original feel.

    You are right. the song was originally titled "Lord", but he changed it beacause he didnt want to be seen as a gospel artist. Ttry it: Where he says "Love", replace it with "Lord".
