Raheem DeVaughn - The Love Experience Lyrics

Yo peace and love, I wanna tell yall about the beautiful love experience (hope you have time, hope you don't mind)

To my cousin I'm hoping you can hear this rhyme
When I ride through the bricks yeah
I think about you all the time
That cold day I got that phone call
It plays back in my mind
I can still hear your mother cry

Well at least I can say I had my first experience of love through you

And to my first girlfriend
I know you probably married now
Reminiscing on our prom date
The way I did you yo was kind of foul
But I guess I had to wise up
So now I know better now (but at least I can say)

But at least I can say I had my first experience of love through you

Like how it feels
When it comes
What its like
When it leaves

So to the woman that betrayed me
I think its unfair how
How you chose to deceive me
I thought that was my child
Now he's forced inside for now

But at least I can say I had my first experience of love through you

To the faith I've lost ( faith I've lost )
For the friends I've gain ( the friends I've gain )
I'm thinking while I'm questioning change is a good thing
'Cause with dead weight you can't travel light (can't travel light)
Besides I was born to fight so I'm gon' be alright ( born to fight)

But at least I can say I had my first experience of love through you)Like how it feels
When it comes
What its like when it leaves

To my moma,
To grandma
To my sister (to my sister)
And say good-bye (to my family)
After departure day and my friends told me what happened oh

But at least I can say I had my first experience of love through you
(I've experienced love)

I've experinced
The Love experience
You should experience
The love experience
We are all, all experiments
Of the love experience
So just experience

We all should experience (la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la)
Experience [x2]

  1. Lashawndia Sheppard

  2. Perverted Alchemist

    Raheem DeVaughn being a victim of paternity fraud must have affected him deeply. He mentions it twice on his debut: On this song as well as "Until".

  30. Reuben

    STILL my favorite LP by him. Man that album was classic!


    @Reuben Shandy Ya man this album brings back memories. I was dating a girl (from DC) and she told me about him. Our 1st date was at his concert at the Trocadero in Philly. Best live performance I've ever seen.


    @TheMegaman1982 Man, I am already knowing it was. I have never seen him live but play this on the regular here. He has put out quality music since BUT nothing has come close to topping The Love Experience.

    Shaqwana Williams

    +TheMegaman1982 oh wow that's amazing.

  65. Southern Visionaries

    first heard Raheem on a radio show called diamond soul experience, been a fan every since, love him

  66. SigmaBlack

    I remember hearing "Until"on a music sampler I got free with another CD purchase,then later hearing this song on XM radio back in 03,it drove me crazy for 2 yrs asking for it at my local music shop as nobody had even heard of this or Raheem at that point(down south),it's a shame this was one of the records they first put that now infamous spyware on.

  67. lovesandra

    I've experienced
    The Love experience
    You should experience
    The love experience
    We are all, all experiments
    Of the love experience
    So just experience <3

  68. T Washington

    true. great album

  69. Jerri

    Plus with dead weight you can't travel light.....besides I was born to fight. I hear you Raheem. You gotta love this man.

  70. Whitney Hicks

    this song is beautiful he is so underated ..i wish they would play music like this on the radio

  71. bigreed43

    We are all experiments of the love experience ....WoW!!!!

  72. 33Kellymc

    This is the first song on the cd! My friend called me from back home in Jersey and told me to pick this up!! I was in GA at the time... I was hooked ever since! This cd was hott! This song is HoTT!! Love Rah!!

  74. tinaloveseddie

    Thank you Lee for turning me onto this jam....its in my head and heart all the time.....yes, a very bad jam...oh yeah.

  75. tinaloveseddie

    Me 2........................

  76. TruthSeeker

    This is a real cool sample, I like what he did with switch's "friend in the sky", I think the late great Bobby Debarge would appreciate it. I'm glad he did something classy with the lyrics, unlike so many of the degrading new music. Great job Raheem.

  77. gb4double

    and this beat is sick!!! the bass gettn it in...

  78. gb4double

    how does this only have 3160 in views??? Folks, this is something Marvin Gaye would sung in his prime man... shaking my head.

  79. oneeye9426

    This was one of the first albums that I could truly listen to all the way through without skipping a single song. I love it. I drive limos and we have to drive up to Louisville every year for the Derby from Memphis and I swear I listen to this entire CD at least three times on the way up there and another three or four times on the way back.

  80. oneeye9426

    I totally agree brother!

  81. oneeye9426

    I totally agree.

  82. Norva Sylvester

    Love the sampling, wicked tune, but I prefer the original by Switch, "My Friend In The Sky".

  83. deedeegiggles

    This song is about love not sexuality. Really, what's love got to do with it?

  84. andre brown

    Shit man!U dont have to be gay to appreciate a dope ass song!I'm a dude too,and this whole CD is tight!Real talk!

  85. Aubrey Zanders

    I ain't trying to tag him, but this shit sound so neo-soulish dunn! I pull up to the bodega bumpin this!!!

  86. CJvibez2008

    This was the first tune i heard from raheem and ever scince i been hooked...hes cute too. xx

  87. Shamon Stone

    Sampling My Friend in The Sky by. Switch

  88. redjam40

    This was the first track that got me to notice the album called the Love Experience by Raheem Devaughn. It had even better jams on it then this which was a great bonus. A great album which allowed Soul music to fly in the face of Rnb Music, and on this occaision - win!

    What a album this was.
