Music Moods: “In Love with You”

There is another deliciously beautiful song that I’d like to share with you that’s really close to my heart.  Erykah Badu‘s sophomore album Mama’s Gun came out around the time that my husband and I began dating.  On that album was a song that instantly touched both of us because it struck a chord with our relationship.  The song was called “In Love with You” and featured Stephen Marley, son of the legendary Bob Marley.  “In Love with You” tells the story of two friends who find themselves contemplating the idea of being in love with one another.  Can you see why the song struck a chord? Musically, rhythmically, melodically… this song is amazing.  It has the most beautiful reggae flavor to it and is so sweet to the ear.  But, you know what I love best right? Yep, you guessed it… the lyrics.  These lyrics are incredibly simple, yet powerful.  Check out the song below and/or the lyrics right beneath.

And she says she needs more than a friend
That’s all I ever been yo
Well one day you gon’ overstand yo badu
And I remember the first time that we met yo
How could I forget
When you smiled
And I turned and said to you
Yo, your pure and true

I’m in love with you, in love with you
I’m in love with you, in love with you
I’m in love with you, in love with you
I’m in love with you, in love with you, yeah

I’m so in love baby
I don’t care what your mama say
Standing in love lady
And I don’t care what your sister say
Yo badu I need ya

He said he’s really diggin me
I don’t know what to say
I can’t imagine why I feel so weak, say, say
That’s when he took my heart in his hands
And kissed it gently
He opened up his lips then said this poetry

I’m in love with you, love with you
Love with you, love with you
Love with you, love with you
Love with you, love with you

I’m so in love baby
I don’t care what your brothers say, no
I’m so in love baby
I don’t care what the people say

Well I try and I try and I try
And I try and I try and I try and I try and I try

And you said you need more than a friend
That’s all I’ve ever been yo
Well one day you gon’ overstand yo badu

And when I look In your eyes
I know that you were meant to be
My soldier so baby come on
I mean it desperately

I’m in love with you, love with you
I’m in love with you, in love with you
No see I’m in love with you, love with you
No, no, no I’m in love with you, in love with you

I’m so in love baby
I don’t care what the people say
Standing in love lady
And I don’t care what your sister say
I’m so in love baby
I don’t care what the writers say
(Badu-da-dee..)
I try, I try, I try, I try
You in love with me
You in love with me
No you in love with me
No, no, no you in love with me
No see you in love with me
No, no, no you in love with me
No you think you in love with
No, no, no you in love with me
I know you’re in love with me
No, no, no you in love with me
Alright I’m in love with you
Yes I’m in love you
I’m in love with you
And I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
(Badu-badee…)
Yes I’m in love with you
Yes I’m in love with you

  1. I love this song and I love Erykah Badu. That is such a beautiful song. Hope you’re having a great week!

  2. LOL… don’t worry, people have been calling me out all week, including my husband. I’m honored to know that people are missing me. 😉 I didn’t really mean to take a break, but it just sort of happened… just returned from vacation on Monday. But, I am working on it now.

I love your feedback. Please leave a comment!
