Ever since we happened on a glance in Khyber's Café
I will always thank God for the chance He gave us that day
Pleasant conversation on a break, a break from the band
You were then and have always been a perfect gentleman
You love me, Nobody else would do it
You hear me, Nobody else would listen
You see me, Nobody else would notice
I'm special in your life
Going to bed each evening with a dream of having a child
Starting all our mornings with a kiss, a hug and a smile
Sharing all our feelings with a friend, the good and the bad
'Cause you're the very best friend that I've ever had!
(Repeat Chorus )
I love you, I need you, oh so desperately
I can't, can't live without you
Take my hand, take my heart
You're the man that I want
Here I am...
You can have it all because

There was a time when I stayed at home alone
I knew a lot of guys, but none I could call my own
But when you came along, my heart sang a brand new song
Now I'm happy, glad I found you and I'm not afraid say
Welcome to my love
Come on in and make yourself at home
(Chorus - continued)
Welcome to my life
I know everything's gonna be alright
Needed a woman, said you'd need a girl that's just like me
You've had a lot of girlfriends, but none in whom you can believe
Time just dragged along, you're tired a playin' the same ole song
But now you're happy, glad I found you
'Cause you're not afraid to say...
(Chorus - continued)
Come on in, take all you want
You are the only one for me
Here is right where I wanna be
We're like two leaves on a vine
You know just what is on my mind
I just wish you could'a been here in my life
The whole time!

Boy, I've been watching you for so long
Oh, and I like what I see
I can't explain what makes you so...
Attractive to me
It's something 'bout the way you wear your hair
And the scent of your cologne
Doesn't really matter what you wear
You don't need nothing on...
I've been waiting... for you to be mine
Patiently waiting, mhmm for the right time
I just can't wait to get to know you
For you feel like a friend
I can't ignore whatever it is that makes you so...
Different from other men
Anticipating, any moment now
When you walk through that door
Into my home, my heart, my life
And it's just what I've been waiting for...
Patiently waiting, umhm for the right time
I've been waiting, waiting for you
You'll be my knight in armor and I'll be your queen
We'll be together at last we'll share the dream
Nothing's gonna stop us now
Come let's begin right away, why not today?

The summer is almost over and I haven't met him yet
I sit here all alone, right by the phone
Who would ever guess?
With my heart as big as the ocean
And with all this love to share
Couldn't find someone right to light up my life
But then I saw you standing there
Don't you know that
It only took a minute
The moment I looked in your eyes
To see all those love signs
I'd never thought I'd find
I can't believe how you touch me
You're like a breeze blowing through my hair
I get a rush when you tell me to hush
And you take me there
You're my morning coffee
And baby I'm your easy chair
There's no way this could be a love fantasy
When I know we've got the real affair!
And even tho'...
(I'm caught up in it)
I'm caught up
All at once I knew inside
(Only took a minute)
You're the love, you're the love
You're the love of my life!
Ooh I love you (I love you baby) You're the one for me
Ooh you know I thought it was over
'Cause nobody would come my way
The door to love that I almost closed
Was the same door you opened today!
(Repeat 1st Chorus )

I heard that she hurt you... she broke your heart
They said that you just broke down and cried (I couldn't believe it, boy)
'Cause you were the lover (Casanova)
God's gift to this world
And no one girl could ever tie you down
At last, the shoe is on the other foot
And I know just what you've been going through
'Cause I'm still here waiting for you
With open arms
I receive you
Holding my heart in my hand
I will relieve you
From every day in every way that I can
I know that you're lonely... I'm lonely too
And Lord knows I still really love you, yes (you better believe it, boy)
'Cause you are the only, the one & only man for me
And I'm the woman that you need, yes
A million tears would not change my mind
You see, it doesn't matter what you do
I'll be right here waiting for you

I can only blame myself
To think that someone else could ever take your place
I must have been out of my head to turn away
I said I needed time and space
I thought the grass was greener on the other side
You never miss your water 'til your well runs dry
I wrote you letters ... you sent them back
I'm gonna keep on trying ... in my heart I still believe
I'll take my chances... 'cause I can wait
I promise that's what I'll do... 'til you come back to me
Tried to convince myself
The love we shared was over & a thing of the past
We'd grown apart & lost the feeling that we once shared
Just didn't realize
How much I hurt you when I chose to say goodbye
I had it all but I just wasn't satisfied
(Repeat Chorus then Bridge)
'Cause there's no one in this world
Who's gonna love you like I do
I'll keep on wishing 'til you come back
I won't give up 'til you're right here with me
I love you
But you don't wanna give me my just due
Oh you love me
But this 'give and take' has turned into a monopoly
You can't get until you learn to start giving (2x)
You can't get until you learn to start giving
Tried to please you
But you took everything I had and l let you
Now you need me
Bet you never thought the shoe would be on the other foot, you see
You can't get until you learn to start giving (4x)
I was down and blue
Working within your limited point of view
Oh you always had your way
In matters of love I never had a say
Now you don't know
That someday you'll reap exactly what you've sown
Only then you'll see
Just what kind of pain you've given me!
Oh Lord... what did I do to deserve him?
Heaven knows, I'm not like you... I'm not perfect
When he sees... will he leave
... Or will he stay anyway?
Oh Lord... what did I do to deserve her?
Heaven knows... Lord knows I'm only human
Can this be... someone truly for me
... Or is it a cruel fantasy?
Nothing has ever felt like this...
Nothing has ever meant the whole world to me
Nothing has ever been this good
Nothing has ever been this right
Nothing so sweet in my life
I know that you treasure me
And I know that I'm the only man you see... yeah
I live in love with you
I love my life with you
We'll share a life together
I love you right now and forever!
I don't know why... But I do
I don't know how... . But I know it's you
And I know you love me too, oh
I know you love me too!
I don't know where or when... But I know it's true
And I don't know quite what to do
But I know you love me too, oh
I know you love me
I'm your woman, I'm your wonder girl
Ain' nothin' like it in the whole wide world
'Cause I'm so happy I can hardly breathe
Yeah... I don't know anything else 'cept that you love me!
Out of this world, you send me... It's what you do
And I'm out of my mind... in love with you
Baby, it's gettin' too hard to pay attention
And some of the things I just can't even mention
I can't seem to finish a sentence
You don't know how long it's been since I felt this good inside!

I know it's two in the morning
Sorry for calling so late
I never get any warning
Something comes over me and I cannot wait
I want to be with you... just like it used to be, guess
I'm feeling sentimental tonight
Darling, don't you know that I will never get over you
Sentimental don't remember what's wrong or right...
It's just a feeling that'll help me get through the night
I saw your sister in town today
She wanted to know if I was okay
I tried to pretend everything was cool
She said, "Tears don't lie and I know the truth"
Oh, I want you... I need you to do what we used to do! Cause,
If I'm incurable
Then you're my disease
But I don't mind feeling this way
If you'll come and see about me!

Don't ask what am I gonna do
'Cause it hasn't even started sinking in
Need time... time to think it through
How am I supposed to know where I begin?
Suddenly, I'm alone here
Loving me isn't in your plans
Yesterday you were mine
And my heart was in your hands
Could've fooled me
Turned out I was wrong
You knew all along
That one day you'd be leaving
I was so secure
Confident and sure
We were meant to be
So sad, I'm the last to know
Would've bet my life we were going all the way
It's too bad you didn't let me go
If you were honest then I'd be over you today
Now suddenly I'm alone here
Loving me doesn't feel so right
But we're history tonight
There was no indication, no warning, no signs
I guess you could say that I ... I must have been blind
Sixty-five years must've been too much to bear
For an insecure black man livin' on the verge of despair
Too much resentment and too much hate
From which there can be no easy escape
It's too late, there's nothing left to give
Not for your woman, you've got nothin' for your kids
It's too late, there's nothing left to hide
So you go your way and I'll go mine
My father and I don't get along
He's always right, I'm always wrong
We never talk... he'd rather hide
Preening his pride and pruning mine
I tried to talk to him... to go beyond the insults and lies
Depending on the love to keep the family alive
He said, "I don't wanna talk on account'a the pressure of my blood"
I said, "Can't we talk on account of love? I'm reaching out to you"
He said, "Don't reach out to me"
"But, I love you. I love you! Dad... don't you love me?"
(Bridge - continued)
He stared straight ahead at the basketball game on his precious tv
And he never even opened his mouth...
He never even opened his mouth to me... and now
You go your way, you go your way... and I'll go mine.
How can we have peace in the Middle East when there's none at home?
How can we have understanding in the land
When there's none in the woman
And there's none in the man?
How can we heal the wounds of the world if we cannot heal our own?
And where does this peace on earth begin if not in the home?
Where do we go now... do we let the devil win... or do we get up and fight
Surely we know how to conquer all our fear
Bring an end to the violence
Bring an end to the tears
Well, there's too much talk about it
And too many walk without it
Where is the love?
Where is the God in your life?
To my left a woman abuses her children
To my right somebody's beating his wife
Tell me, where is the love?!!?
Where is the God in your life?!!?
