Abdul, Paula - My Love Is For Real Lyrics

I made mistakes when I played with your mind
Gave you excuses with each story line
If you ask me how I feel
My love is for real

Watching you wondering what I feel inside
Deep in my soul I've got nothing to hide
If you ask me how I feel
My love is for real

So baby please don't worry
I wanna make it better
I wanna be your only love

This time I'll understand you
I'll never leave your side
This time it's got to be for you

Let's put an end to these long lonely nights
Things that were once wrong now turned out all right
If you ask me how I feel
My love is for real
If you ask me how I feel
My love is for real

You told me, you loved me
You said that
I need you, you want me
I told you

So baby I won't tease you
I'm gonna make it better
I wanna be your only love
This time I'll understand you
I'll never leave your side
This time it's got to be for you

If you ask me how I feel
My love is for real

    she looks amazing here,and love this video,and brought and love this album

  26. jal b

    Was really hoping Paula would add this to her set list for her Vegas show but it didn't happen. Although the couple of shows this month were referred to as "a soft opening".....so maybe she will add this once the residency really starts.

  27. Weston Huffman

    Wonderful 1995 classic!!

  28. Elfego Chavez

    My favorite artist since I was little.

  29. william5177

  34. MrAmoon76


  35. Халид алиев

    Как я болдела от этой песни в юности😍

  36. RSully94

    Honestly, I can kinda see why she fell off from a commercial standpoint. She wasn't a good singer back then, unlike her dancing/choreography. By the mid-90s, she didn't have the big 80s productions to save her. And of course, not everyone can be Whitney/Mariah in the music industry, but some other artists transitioned better at the time, in particular Janet Jackson, Madonna and Kylie Minogue.

    She still is a good dancer/choreographer and a lovely person from what it seems.

  37. The Chairmen

    What happened to Paula Abdul’s videos on iTunes?

  38. Divya Gayathri

    WHAT?? Not even 1M views?
    This song is dope af

  39. slipdisco

    This should be re-released in honor of Miss Abdul’s upcoming Las Vegas residency!

  40. Tyhler Novac

    Not sure why people always wanted a desert music video in the 90's R.Kelly, Puffy, Sting, Boyz to men Sade, Michael Jackson, Shai, TLC, Etc..... All done it

  41. Andrew Tarantino

    Its so weird that this album didnt do as well,and she never made a full studio album ever again

    Garret Hiller

    This came out in 1995 and her previous album came out in 1991 so 4 years between albums is a long time for an artist to be gone and musical tastes can shift. She had taken a long time off because she was battling bulimia and serious spinal injury from a plane crash she was in. The album at least peaked in the top 20 of the billboard album chart and was certified gold for 500,000 copies sold. And she was supposed to come out with a 4th studio album in the late ‘90s but her record company got bought out by another one and she and other recording artists got lost in the shuffle. At least she made a big comeback with American Idol and even made a few new songs out of that popularity. And now we have a Vegas residency to look forward to!

    Andrew Tarantino

    Yea,but im saying,i think she shouldve came out with another album in like 1997 or 1998,under some other label to keep the fires hot,i guess its good she did Idol,but to me she isnt known for that at all,im glad she is doing the Vegas residency,and i heard she has a ton of songs already made since starting new songs in 1997,i hope we get to hear these songs in the proper format,she should def put out a new album

    Bud S

    Yeah actually this album has a lot of great songs !

  42. Ren The Villain

    This is amazing. Can't believe I've never come across this song and video until now.

  76. Jaoyte Potter-Urbanek

    It's a shame Virgin records abandoned Paula after her first 2 albums. Head Over Heels holds up just as well as anything she released before it.

  77. Sandra Sepeda

  82. Robert Wiegman

    Wow, I never say this before...damn, she's awesome!

  83. Keith walton

    Thank you; Nasty Hoe.

  84. saltwatercb

    I remember exactly where I was (driving down 195E in Massachusetts) when I heard this song for the first time, and I thought, "WOW, what a way to come back," but, alas, the public was indifferent and the album flopped. This song remains sexy, sly and delicious 20+ years later. It's a shame it didn't connect, as it expanded her sound and was a bold yet sensible choice for a lead single. Ofra Haza's sinuous, ethereal background vocals prove to be the icing on an already excellent cake.

    SweetPea 4EVER!

    saltwatercb a well written commentary on a grim I’ll-fated project that WAS “Head Over Heels”

  85. Kasey B.

    Paula gave me everything in this song and vid!!! One of my faves!!!

  86. Red Velvet

    Ummm, anyone else notice the background dancer completely grab Paula's boobs @ 3:41 ???

    Just masterpiece! Another classic Paula's song - best pop in the world. Stoopid critics! The thing is that I didn't saw the video from 1996 but still remember both the song and video. I miss You Paula. We need talents like You. "Dance like there's no tomorrow" and "I'm just here for the music" are amazing too! Come back Paula!
