Love Of My Life
Erykah Badu Lyrics


Right here what we gon' do is go back
Way back
Way back, yeah

I met him when I was a
Little girl, he gave me
He gave me poetry
And he was my first

But in my heart I knew I
Wasn't the only one
Cause when the tables turned
He had to break up

Whenever I got lonely
Or needed some advice
He gave me his shoulder
His words were very nice

But that is all behind me
Cause now there is no other
My love is his and his is mine
A friend became the

Love of my life
You are my friend
Love of my life
I can depend
Love of my life
Without you, baby
It feels like a simple true love

Hope this shit ain't clear
A freak-freak ya'll, and ya don't stop
To the beat ya'll and ya don't stop
A freak-freak

Or could it be that it was
All just so simple then
A teenage lover who said
He's just a friend

He moved around and we kept
In touch through his friend Mike
The world was young and he knew
We couldn't rush but

Whenever I got lonely
Or needed some advice
He gave me his shoulder
His words were very nice

But that is all behind me
Cause now there is no other
My love is his and his is mine
A friend became the

Love of my life
You are my friend
Love of my life
A dude I can depend, yeah, yeah
Love of my life
Feels like a simple true love, yeah

Love of my life
You are my friend
Love of my life
A dude I can depend, yeah, yeah
Love of my life
Feels like a simple true love, yeah

Hope this shit ain't clear

Y'all know how I met her
We broke up and got back together
To get her back I had to sweat her (sweat her)
Thought she roll wit bad boys forever
In many ways them boys made her better
To grow I had to let her (let her)
She needed cheddar and I understood that (that)
Lookin' for cheese that don't make her a hood rat (rat)
In fact she's a queen to me, her light beams on me
I love it when she sings to me
It's like that and a

Ooh you know you rock my world
And you be boy and I'll be girl
And we don't stop until the break of dawn
Ooh you know you rock my world
And you be boy and I'll be girl
And we don't stop until the break of oohhh

Totally agree, except for the simple part .

This song came out in 2002 the summer after 9/11

I'm a New Yorker the Patriot act had us getting search at random to get on the train.

There was soldiers in the subway with M4 riffles...

Life would never be the same.

I didn’t realize as a child. This video is a love letter to hip hop. Showing the evolution and paying homage to every era. Even leaving the future of hip hop up to the children in the end. Beautiful.

Saxpoobie Lex

How unfortunate as kids we didn't know the real love she was singing too. It was not just another love song on the radio. This song was a message, example, and life lesson.

Yes, it's a ode to Common's 94' I used to Love Her love letter to hip hop. Nice touch having him feature & the brown sugar soundtrack had that whole vibe.

Love how at 3:37 she talks about cultural appropriation and the elements of hip-hop that are supposed to bring Black People together against the struggle, slowly loses meaning through white people wanting to look cool and feel accepted, not understanding or caring about the depth of this art. What a Goddess.

Fick Dich

black people are just racist as hell and love to talk shit about white people

Mermaid Unicorn

She just looked at the audience like this is different and wow, yall feeling this too?
