Love Letter #4




Lyrics to 1st verse from Faithful by Common

"I was rollin' around, in my mind it occurred
What if God was a her?
Would I treat her the same? Would I still be runnin' game on her?
In what type of ways would I want her?
Would I want her for her mind or her heavenly body?
Couldn't be out gettin' bogus with someone so godly
If I was wit' her would I still be wantin' my ex?
The lies, the greed, the weed, the sex
Wouldn't be ashamed to give her part of my check
Wearin' her cross, I mean the heart on my neck
Her I would reflect on the streets of the Chi'
Ride wit' her, 'cause I know for me she'd die
Through good and bad call on her like I'm chirpin' her
Couldn't be jealous 'cause other brothers worship her
Walk this earth for her, glory, I'm grateful
To be in her presence I try to stay faithful

[Chorus]
[sample] Faithful to the end
[sample] Faithful to the end
[sample] Faithful to the end
[sample] I'd like to be her very best friend"

Thank you for putting this heart on my neck.
Thank you for loving my mind and not just my body.
Thank you for giving me part of your check.
Thank you for giving me all of you, the honesty, the ambition & yes the sex.
Thank you for not being jealous because other brothers worship me.
Thank you for being my medicine, and healing my broken spirit.
Thank you for wearing my heart on your sleeve, (facebook,) and for repping me in the streets on the internet, LA and Miami. Thank you for ridin' with me because you know for you'd I'd die.
Thank you for calling on me in good and bad, in sickness and in health,
for as long as we both shall live...
I'll be faithful
to the end.

love, Me.
