    you can love me
    with your kiss
    but...
    can you love me when by family
    I've been dismissed

    you can love me
    with your touch
    but...
    can you love me
    when I'm ill without making a fuss

    CAN YOU...

    love me with
    miles upon miles of
    stretch marks after having
    your baby

    can you love me when
    I'm not looking so pretty

    love me when I'm
    down and out
    or
    when I'm praisin God with a
    scream and shout

    can you love me
    in spite of my past
    build on a love that will
    forever last

    can you love me in
    jeans and a tee
    with pockets filled with
    no cash

    these things will determine
    if your love is superficial

    PROOF that it won't last

    can you...
    love me thoroughly
    if the doctor diagnoses me
    with cancer and I'm no longer the
    Afri-DANCER you once knew

    if you are with out sin
    then cast the first stone

    I'll pack my bags and travel
    this road alone

    Actually, I'll have a travel partner
    a man who
    CAN love me
    My eternal father who'll
    love me
    unconditionally
    beyond a shadow of a doubt

    even in times of spiritual drought

    If this is something
    you feel you CAN'T handle

    there's no need
    to proceed
    with this romantic dinner

    turn off the music

    clear the table and...

    blow out the candle...

    I don't want or need you here.

    can you love me
    Can you loVE ME
    can YOU LOVE ME
