Taking A Love Song To Another Level

Not even 24 hours ago, Beyonce performed her new debut single 1+1 for millions to hear on last nights, American Idol season 10 finale. The song which is a spectacular love ballad where she sings about the POWER of  what LOVE can do to someone. Of course we all know she's lovingly talking about her other half/husband rapper Jay-Z. This song has taking love songs to a whole other level. I believe the song is a mix between Dangerously In love and Satellites. 1+1 may not have as much words as both songs, but the short verse metaphors Beyonce uses to describe how she's feeling is incredibly indescribable. You can listen to the song below and after the jump check out the lyrics. The song of course is available to purchase on iTunes as well as pre-ordering her forthcoming album "4"

   
If I aint got nothing, I got you
If I aint got something I don't give a damn, cause I got it with you
I don't know much about algebra, but I know one plus one equals two
And it's me and you, thats all we'll have when the world is thru

Cause baby we aint got nothing without love
Darling you got enough for the both of us
So come on baby, make love to me

When my days look low, pull me in close and don't let me go.
Make love to me. So that when the worlds at war, that our love heal us all
Right now baby make love to me...me...me...mee...mee. ooh ooh make love to me.

Hey! I don't know much about guns but I...I've been shot by you
Hey! And I don't know when I'm gon die, but I hope that I'm gon die by you
Hey! And I don't know much about fighting, but I, I know I will fight for you
Hey! Just when I ball up my fist I realize that I'm laying right next to you

Baby we aint nothing but love, and darling you got enough for the both of us
Make love to me...when my days look low, pull me in close and don't let me go.
Make love to me...so that when the worlds at war, that our love heal us all
Help me let down my guard, make love to me…me..me….me..meee ooh ooh ooh make love to me...me...me...mee...mee.
