Yo, we're going to have the word love
In many different languages
Translated all through the track
So, whenever you hear the word love
Know that, it's going to be in a different language
The language of love cannot be translated, yo

Love is blind, you just see bright light
You up in the club feeling' the night life
Looking' for the right type

Blood rushing to your heart making it beat
When she swept you off your feet and made it complete
You know the plan you had to conquer the world
Thinking you Scarface, looking for that perfect girl

And now you found her
Started with romantic, then got to frantic
Then things that's normally small become gigantic
Now y'all sinking like the Titanic, here come the panic

When I'm with you like a habit, without you I can't stand it
It's tragic when you wonder when you lost that magic
Without understanding that you never had it try to grab it

In the bed can't get a nut off, communication cut off
Getting mad, 'cause you turned or wondering where she shut off
Constantly comparing you to someone in my past
We don't smile anymore, and we argue over cash

Advance to that physical shit
See what happens if you keep talking
See what happens if you lay a finger on me motherfucker
Yo, see what I'm saying'

It's like one big mind game that everybody playing' and
Niggas say bitches is trife, bitches say niggas is
We just don't understand our fundamental differences
I'm still learning though, actually
I just do what come naturally naturally, naturally

L'amour n'a pas de, frontiere
Restes car je t'aime comme tu es
J'ai traverse l'ocean du verbe
Et je t'ai trouve

Women thrive on emotions, men refuse to acknowledge
So when we arguing' nobody win
Words get in the way time and again
Sticks and stones break your bones words break your heart
Whether you in touch with that part or not say word

Words are weapons for the revolutionary
Used for evil make the situation very scary
Word up, but love is brave, it flies in the face of fear
Yo, wherever you want to go love'll take you there

Let's go, you know a flower that grow in the ghetto
Know more about survival than the one from fresh meadows
It got love for the sun, that's where I'm coming from
Spit and it's smashing, 'cause the love rocking' over drums

Word, I put my love into my music
If you with me then you love how I do it
If my heart you're living' in your ocean I'm swimming' in
Never drowning got me floating' watching you in slow motion

Love potion overdosing' approaching'
The explosion of my senses
Everyday without your heart
Is like a sentence in jail

Trust I'll always be mentally free
You got the key to let it out I'll show you how it could be
Love, it ain't nothing' but a word
A chicken ain't nothing' but a bird, yo, yo, yo

L'amour n'a pas de, frontiere
Restes car je t'aime comme tu es
J'ai traverse l'ocean du verbe
Et je t'ai trouve

Some of you love that material bug
Love enter my life like a miracle
And it reciprocal that's why I'm feeling you love
We exhibit our natural behavior

Like making love under the moon in Jamaica
Get you so hot you call the name of the creata
The morning we hop back into action again
Up on a wall love how the sun liking your skin

Remember when we explored the beach
Swam in the ocean and saw beneath
How the colors of the coral reef
Looked like the idlest floral piece

That's what your beauty remind me of
It's hard to find a love like ours, taking it high above
Them other duns try to spit game but, I don't sweat it though
Know in my heart that we connected so I let it go

Now if they call you out your name and that's a different thing
Anything but Queen I'll go to war like a King
Your friends sweat you, 'cause you ain't got a band
But they don't understand
Some things is meant to stay between a woman and man

And they hate Griffy too so they try to get into it
Both you and me see through it so the way we flow is fluid
We speak the love language, they speak from pain and anguish
Some don't love themselves so they perception is tainted

Out the joint like 'shit he paying for you and missing the point
When you rubbed me into your skin just like an ointment
Is more than pillow talk, it can't be translated
But how to speak it, and become emancipated, it's a language
Universal love

L'amour n'a pas de, frontiere
Restes car je t'aime comme tu es
J'ai traverse l'ocean du verbe
Et je t'ai trouve

Oh, love, love love love love, love, love
Love love love love, love, love
Love love love love, love, love
Love love love love, love, love
...
