Beyoncé – 1+1 lyrics

If I ain't got nothing,
I got you,
If I ain't got something,
I don't give a damn,
Cause I got it with you,
I don't know much about algebra, but I know
1+1, equals 2
And it's me, and you
That's all we'll have when the world is through

Cause baby we ain't got nothing without love.
Darlin' 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 when the world's at war,
Let our love heal us all,
Right now baby, make love to me,
Me, me, me, me... Oh... ohh
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 gone die but I hope,
That I'm gone die by you!
Hey, I don't know much about fighting, but I,
I know I will fight for you!
Hey, just when I ball up my fists I realize,
I'm laying right next to you,

Baby we ain't got nothing but love,
And Darlin' you got enough for,
The both of us, 0oohh...

Make love to me,
When my days look low, Pull me in close,
And don't let me go,
Make love to me.
So when the world's at war,
Let our love heal us all, help me let down my guard
Make love to me,
Me, me, me, me... Oh... ohh
Make love to me,
Me, me, me, me...

    This song means a lot to me, my sister showed me this song a few months after she'd been diagnozed with cancer. I listen to this song and I think of what love really is. And in the video for 1+1 you can see beyoncé cry and she gets very emotional because she's singing about jay. And the love she has for jay, is something I'd love to find one day. That love that is so real and pure that you get emotional talking about it. My sister passed away six months ago. My sister was my soulmate and my bestfriend. And the love I had and still have for my sister is undescribeble. This song makes me think of love and my beautiful sister. Rest in peace, m.

    1+1 is a song about loving some one so. Special and having them by your side without them letting you go I like this song because of that it is a really good song and when she says I don't know much about fighting but I will fight for you it means that she really cares about someone there's more to the story but can't type too much figure it out your selves.

    I may not know everything but I know I love you and I know the love I have for you can't be stopped changed or forgotten no matter what. 1+1=2. Me and you forget numbers that's all I need to know because its us not them. Evrlasting this song is about real love that's why I love b hands down one of the greatest and graceful if I may add singers of our time history in the making she blew that check her out accapella on YouTube rehearsing for her performance at american idol. Me personally I think if you come at b you must come hard this song is a beautiful ballad that we will never forget, thank you b this song made me cry laugh and sing all in one really made me realize what I want in love.

    I think the meaning for 1+1 is more powerful than anything put together and no matter how you put it in words. 1+1 means, you're never going to let anything ruin your love that you and your partner have for one another. Your love heals you, when you think you're falling and the world's at war with you then their love will strengthen you, and everything falls into place. You're not going to let anything happen to them. You'll fight with all your might for them and not let anything happen to them. Also, more or less in the video it is in fact s**.
