Love or Life
by Nii Parkes
Can't nobody love me like this man do;
chase the shivers down my spine
make me moan until I'm cryin'
Don't nobody beat me like this man do;
throw me like a cigarette pack
twist my neck till I see my back
This can't be right, this can't be right
I think I'm gon leave...
I'm gon leave and find me another man
who can't love me to ecstasy
but loves me the right way - not the hard way
I'm gon leave and find me a new lover
who can't make me tremble and scream...
... but I'd rather tremble less and be silent
than tremble hard from a tear washed coffin
and scream his name from six feet under.
