about

When Love describes the basic concept of the song as “Sometimes in life we get caught up in the wrong relationships, friendships (or we allow people, things or situations in our lives that don't belong there). This song is about a woman who is letting go, releasing and overcoming." With Slo on the beat & production, Kona on the guitar and Aaron "Dubalator" Friedman bassist & mix engineer, the Tempo provide a solid foundation for Lubei’s stirring lyrics and expressive performances.

lyrics

When love come knockin' on my window
All of these chains ah let go
Mi done cryin' inside
Through all these pain and these tears
I should've let you go oh oh oh-
woh oh oh

My love was the real thing
A super planetary nice thing
Now the well has gone dry
Through all of these pain and these tears
I should've let you go
oh oh oh woh oh oh

Realness, seh run come come and bring your realness
Queen original teki empress is bound to take a trip to the highest
Mountain top of mount zion
Rockin these locks of a lion
I'll eat your heart out just for tryin'
Now your love gone a mi nah
Mi nah mi nah cryin'


A woman need love if she gon live in this life
Mi say a woman need love if she gon live in this life
A woman need love if she gon live in this life
Said a woman need love if she gon live in this life

Thissya empress love it ah go deeper than the surface
Pure love alone shine the brightest
Flowin pon your roots and your branches
Like flowers in the garden should be growin
And when your well dry it ah go flowin
Know when to let go and let the breeze in
Cause when you let go you start breathin
And then..then.. then..
