    You say it's only a matter of time
    I wish I was the master of time
    So I could fast forward through the heart ache
    `Cause during these days
    With each passing second my heart breaks
    I've fallen in love with you
    Kind of like people fall in love with the idea of heaven
    I know it's hard for you to trust men
    And I know it's hard for you to believe what I'm sayin
    But let me say this
    I've fallen in love with the way you talk
    I'm mesmerized by the way you walk
    If I couldn't be with you
    I'd become a man of the cloth
    Besides you
    Only God deserves this kind of love
    I know it's hard for you to trust
    `Cause men would come at you with love
    But it was a disguise to hide their lust
    If I could travel back to the past
    I would show you real love
    I'm like no other
    A new model of brother
    Even though I couldn't do it
    My soul has time traveled
    Taking me to all forms of music
    Anita Baker sang ANGEL
    That's who you are to me
    Next I learned from the great Bob Marley
    Then I listened to DISCO LADY
    Johnny Taylor sang that
    But we had to travel further back
    Muddy Waters sang MANNISH BOY
    And Billie Holiday sang STRANGE FRUIT
    Your love will be the fruit of my labor
    I tell the world that I'm here to save her
    My soul went further back
    To old Negro spirituals
    Baby can we WADE IN THE WATER
    But we still had to go back a little farther
    Like Afrikans coming off the Amistand
    Saying, "Give Us Free"
    Your love will set me free
    Let's get contemporary
    And start talking about India.Arie
    ARE YOU READY FOR LOVE
    I know Eric Sermon didn't mean it this way
    But YOUR JUST LIKE MUSIC
    I've been thinking
    That you use to mess with thin kings
    Now you're sinking in self doubt
    So let my words sink in
    That you're what love is all about
    You're why songs are written
    Other brothers talking about love
    But they just lip singing
    Come and check out what I'm bringing
    I know it's all about timing
    So why not set you clock to now
