    If you love me,
    Then please give me space
    I like you very much
    But I' ain't ready to let you in my place

    If you love me
    Then please do as I say
    Please stop loving me
    You will get hurtif you stay

    If you love me
    Then get to know my past
    I have skeletons in my closet
    They're still killin my heart-and fast

    If you love me
    Stop coming around
    You make me wanna...:eek:
    I will only let you down

    If you really love me
    Then you would wait
    I have a lot of things I need to settle
    When I shoulda set them straight

    If you love me
    You will wait until I call
    Wait until I can LOVE YOU BACK..
    Cuz right now I can't give you my all......

    Forgive me for my chauvinistic stereo types but as I was reading this I was feelin your flow and thinking that I have said that very same thing and been ignored, and so you can see my surprise when I find this coming from the other half.
    But all you can do is be honest

    Shaz, it's ok!!!
    I am sursprised though that that female didn't listen..:shrug; females can be a lil on the ignorant side though. I just feel like "ok, you aren't ready to take this relationship farther b/c there are sum things you still don't know"

    lf you love me
    then tell me your secrets
    for if my love is real
    then peace we both will sleep with

    if you love me
    don't shut me out
    tell me, baby
    what are you crying about?

    l can't stop loving you
    l loved you from the start
    l don't look at your past
    l look at your heart

    if you love me
    then give me a chance
    allow me to take you out to dinner
    afterwards to a dance

    "if you love me"
    is the quote you say
    but yes l love you
    but l love me more today

    so l'm out.

    from a male perspective :wink:

    T, this one's on point...
