We’ve talked about it before, here on the blog. The current music that you hear on the radio is trash sex music, it has nothing to do with love. So every now and then we have to do a lil music education here on the site. Every blue moon we give a tribute of sorts to the brothers who sing, and sang real music. These were songs by grown men, with grown men problems, and grown men situations. They weren’t talking about, wanting a girl with a big booty, they were talking about matters of the heart, and not having sex but instead, making love!

On the next few pages we present 5 love songs (with lyrics) that can break a brother down if it catches him on the wrong day. We’re talking about the day that his woman leaves him, the pollen count is high and he accidentally left all of the windows open at the house LOL.

Check them out then let us know what songs you would add to our list.

You know, me and my woman
We’ve been goin’ through a lot of changes for about six months or so
It’s been real hard to talk to one another
You know a relationship ain’t nothin’ without communication
How we were lying in the bed
The both of us lookin’ at the ceiling overhead
Eyes wide open, about 3 O’Clock in the mornin’
I said, “Baby, we can’t go on this way”
She said, “You’re right”
I said, “I know you love me and I love you”
Then we start holding each other
I felt a tear roll down my face

Last night me and my woman
We cried, cried together
Said we cried {Cry}, cried {Cry}, cried {Cry}
We cried together (Oh…oh…oh…)

Ain’t nothin’ wrong with you, no
There ain’t nothin’ wrong with me, uh-uh

We’re not the only people in the world
Who go through ups and downs
All we have to do is talk
We can work it out

Oh…oh…let me kiss you eyes
Let me wipe your tears away
Let me hold you tight
Tomorrow we’ll feel better “˜cause it’s a brand new day

Oh, last night me and my woman
We cried together
Said we cried {Cry}, cried {Cry}, cried {Cry}, cried
We cried together (Oh…oh…oh…)

Now we had ties when we laughed hearty
We’d even go out on the town and we’d party, party, party

Every day the sun doesn’t shine
Sometimes it has to rain
Just like we enjoy the pleasure
We have to stand the pain

Oh, let me kiss you eyes
Let me wipe the tears away
Oh, let me hold you tight
Let’s talk to each other, I wanna hear what you got to say

Oh…last night, sweet last night me and my woman
We cried together
Said we cried {Cry}, cried {Cry}, cried {Cry}
We cried together, together
And then we and then we and then we and then we made love [Love, love]

Love like we never made love before
You know we stopped huggin’ each other
And kissin’ {Cry, cry together} and I wipe the tears from my face
And there was love all over the place {Cry, cry together}
Said we cry {Cry, cry together}
There’s nothin’ wrong with you {Cry, cry together}
And there ain’t nothin’ wrong with me {Cry, cry together}
We’re not the only people in the world who go through ups and downs
And changes and turn arounds

    I actually like “This Woman’s Work” by Maxwell more than any other Maxwell song because the first 2 words of the song said it all: “Pray GOD” and then the rest of the lyrics from the first verse: Pray God You can cope, I stand outside this woman’s work, This woman’s world, Ooh It’s hard on the man, Now his part is over, Now starts the craft of the father
