    Baby what does love mean to you?
    is love using your manhood to overwhelm
    using your size to hurt and swell
    does it mean I MUST obey
    be ridiculed and put down day after day
    to turn the other cheek when you go astray
    in hopes that you will lose intrest and once again everything will be o.k
    to look at you as a ruler and not a partner
    to be denied my spiritual bread and water
    to be taught that my opinions don't matter
    to keep the peace I have to put up with whatever
    to feel that I am a slave and there is no shelter
    bring down my self worth to think I can't do better
    to say my words hold no ground
    made to think I am lost and can never be found
    to make me weak, to give up
    is that what you really call love??

    Well let me think
    let me see
    I can tell you that's not love to me
    I feel love should nurture
    mentally and emotionally
    I should be the roots AND leaves to your tree
    to be held up for all to see
    to be put on a pedestal, treated as your queen
    to let no other come between
    talk to me as if I am on your level
    think of me like that most precious metal
    touch me to heal me
    the physical and the mental
    forsake me not for some other person or thing
    theres only me your nubian queen
    let me know my opinion matters
    let us meet inbetween
    prove to me there is no better place to go
    make me want to stay even as we grow old
    show me that the WHOLE world isn't so mean
    YES baby that's love to me

    And if theres some question about any of these things
    then you may as well let me be
    I refuse to go on unless I can see
    that you TRULY understand what "love" means to me
