D’Angelo- Really Love

What’s remarkable about Black Messiah, other than the fact that it actually exists, is how fresh D’Angelo sounds when slotted next to modern R&B artists. It’s the same trick The Roots pull off with every new album—sounding inherently classic yet completely of the present. There’s a thematic and sonic awareness to Black Messiah—credited to D’Angelo And The Vanguardthat makes it so much more than a long-delayed comeback album from an artist widely declared a genius some 15 years ago. It’s somehow the past, present, and future all in one.

Here’s the lyrics:

When you call my name
When you love me gently
When you’re walking near me
Doo doo wah I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love with you

When you look at me
I open up instantly
I fall in love so quickly
Doo doo wah I’m in really love with you, doo doo wah I’m in really love with you
I’m in really love with you

All night beside you I’d lay
I love you deep when you come to my bed
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you
Ooh wah, I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love with you

When you touch me there
When you make me tingle
When our nectars mingle
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love
I’m not an easy man, to overstand, you feel me
But girl your patient with me
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love with you

All night I wish for you here
Lay your head beside my hip
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you
I’m in really love with you

Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you
I’m in really love with you
Oh how I love the little things you do
I’m in really love with you
