  • If tomorrow is judgment day
    And I'm standing on the front line
    And the Lord asks me what I did with my life
    I will say I spent it with you

    If I wake up in World War III (World War III)
    I see destruction and poverty
    And I feel like I want to go home
    It's okay if you're coming with me

    'Cause your love is my love
    And my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
    'Cause your love is my love
    And my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

    If I lose my fame and fortune (really don't matter)
    And I'm homeless on the street (on the street oh Lord)
    And I'm sleeping in Grand Central Station (okay)
    It's okay if you're sleeping with me

    As the years they pass us by (the years, the years, the years, the years, the years)
    We stay young through each other's eyes (each other's eyes)
    And no matter how old we get
    It's okay as long as I got you baby

    'Cause your love is my love
    And my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
    'Cause your love is my love
    And my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

    If I should die this very day (very very very day)
    Don't cry (don't cry), 'cause on Earth we weren't meant to stay
    And no matter what the people say (really don't matter)
    I'll be waiting for you after the judgment day

    'Cause your love is my love
    And my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
    'Cause your love is my love
    And my love is your love
    It would take an eternity to break us
    And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us Writer/s: JERRY DUPLESSIS, WYCLEF JEAN

  • Dios Moagi from Tzaneen, South AfricaThis song is more about appreciation to a time well spent with a loved one. When you truly love, sometimes you'd feel like givin up your all just to be with someone. I do not know what Whitney was going through, but the lyrics depicts the longing and how much one can feel whole around someone they truly love, and hopefully insinuating that we might be looking to achieve the big feats in life when all that is necessary is to simply love and be loved fully without restraint.
