Actor Donald Glover's musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino, is earnest, even pleading, in his passion. You'll feel that raw emotion when you listen to the standout gospel song, "Me and Your Mama," on his new album, Awaken, My Love!

That same moving single now has a virtual reality video to accompany it. To watch it, you have to download his Pharos app (free and kind of strange). While you're encouraged to use a VR headset, it's not necessary. Just tilt your phone to see Childish Gambino rock glow-in-the-dark duds and belt out "Me and Your Mama" with a live band to back him up. The VR experience is promo for the album release. 

"Me and Your Mama" lyrics

You may get so swept away while listening to "Me and Your Mama" that you don't quite catch all of the words. Here are the lyrics (via Genius) to this intense forbidden love song:

[Intro]
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la
I'm in love when we are smokin' that la-la-la-la-la

[Hook]
Do what you want
I'm telling you
Let me into your heart

[Verse 1]
Can't stand it, backhanded
They wanna see us fallin' apart
You know that I love you
So let me into you

[Hook]
Let me into your heart
Do you really love me?
I'ma get you, girl, ahhhh!

[Verse 2]
This is the end of us
Sleeping with the moon and the stars
I know where you've been
You can see the sun

[Hook]
Let me into your heart
Oh, this ain't no bullshit
I really love you, girl
Oh, oh God

[Bridge]
Girl you really got a hold on me
So this isn't just puppy love
Girl you really got a hold on me
So this isn't just puppy love

[Outro]
I'm in love when we are smokin' that
Oh my God, I
Let me in
Girl you really got a hold, woo!
