‘Love is a game in which one always cheats’.
Cheating is not a good thing, but John Legend has found the most beautiful way to put it. From his debut album Get Lifted, when he was a newbie to the mainstream market. The album, released in 2004 on Kanye’s G.O.O.D label, received the grammy for Best R&B Album in 2006. Produced by WILL.I.AM and sampling Sly & the Family Stone’s Just Like a Baby.
‘When I meet you, I got my shades on to cover up my eyes
I’m hoping that nobody sees me passing by through my disguise
I still know you recognize
But you I know you got a little secret of your own
Sneaking out with me while your man’s at home
You know you wrong, but it’s so strong still carrying on
I go to the other side of town so I never risk the chance will catch her eye
Oh no she dont have to know, she dont have to know
And oh girl I know you’re doing the same thing too
I won’t tell your man the things we do
Oh no he dont have to know, he dont have to know’
One love XN.
