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...

    The video is filled with demonic illuminati symbols, diguised by the kalaediscope of imagery. Watch it again, don't be fooled into thinking it's a harmless love song

    I think that it means when you love someone so much youll do what ever you have to do to keep them close and youll feel empty and alone if your not with them ... This is one of my favorite songs

    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.
