“Damn I think I love that boy, do anything for that boy/Ooh ooh ooh ooh/Now I’ll never be the same, you and me until the end.” When you’ll do any and everything for love, that’s when you know you’re in deep!
“In December every sign has its own mode/I was in love with a Sagittarius/See the emotions he put me through.” Queen Bey loves her Jay who was born on December 4th, which makes him a Sagittarius. It totally makes sense that this line in the song from her first album is absolutely about him!

“It’s very seldom, that you’re blessed to find your equal/Still play my part and let you take the lead role, believe me/I’ll follow, this could be easy/I’ll be the help, whenever you need me.” There's no denying that Beyoncé and Jay-Z have both established themselves as true powerhouses, not only within the realm of music but also in various other aspects of their lives.

“Now everybody asks me why I’m smiling out from ear to ear/(They say love hurts)/But I know/(it’s gonna take the real work)/Nothing’s perfect but it’s worth it/After fighting through my tears and finally you put me first.” It's hard to pinpoint what makes the lyrics of this song truly special—whether it's the unforgettable moment when Beyoncé's baby bump, heralding the arrival of her daughter Blue, made its debut following her performance at the 2011 MTV VMAs, or simply the song's undeniable brilliance. One thing's for sure: "Love on Top" will forever remain a vibrant and heartwarming ode inspired by the love of her life.
8. Deja Vu
“Baby seems like everywhere I go I see you/From your eyes I smile, it’s like I breathe you/Helplessly I reminisce, don’t want to/Compare nobody to you.” Genuine love reveals itself when you start recognizing traces of your beloved in everything that surrounds you, just as in the lyrics of this track by Beyonce.
9. End of Time
“I’ll be your friend/I will love you so deeply/I will be the one to kiss you at night/I will love you until the end of time.” The foundation of their strong bond lies in their friendship with each other. It is well known how Beyonce and Jay Z melded their love and grew closer as friends and remained steadfast despite being parents to three beautiful children.
10. Part II (On The Run)
“I don’t care if they give me life/I get all of my life from you/And if loving you had a price/I would pay my life for you.” The dedication and sacrifice the two are willing to make for each other resonated through these powerful lines. Beyonce has never shied away from expressing her love for the love of her life be it on stage or any other occasion.
