Lyric "Love Of My Life (An Ode To Hip Hop)"

Bring it over here and let's go back
Way back
Ooh...
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

[Pre-Hook]
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

[Hook]
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

[Common]
A freak-freak, y'all, and ya don't stop
To the beat y'all 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

[Pre-Hook & Hook]

[Common]
Y'all know how I met her
We broke up and got back together
To get her back I had to sweat her
Thought she roll with bad boys forever in many ways
Them boys may be better, to I had to let her (Never)
She needed cheddar and I understood 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 now

Love of my life
Ooh, you know you rock my world and
Love of my life
You be boy and I'll be girl and
Love of my life
We don't stop until the break of dawn, ooh...

Love of my life
Ooh, you know you rock my world and
Love of my life
You be boy and I'll be girl and
Love of my life
Yeah...
