Curtis Mayfield - Make Me Believe In You Lyrics




Ain't a girl to be found
Without a mouth [?]
You just remember from hip to the lip
Before you ask any questions

I ain't for no heart wrappin'
So you can stop with your eyelids slappin'
It's gonna be a real cryin' shame
If I find that you're playin' in a game

Make me believe in you
Show me your love can be true
Do anything you want me to do
Make me believe in you

Keepin' filled with all your temptation
You know it leaves me with no inspiration
Another chart playin' on me
May have a hard time succeedin', you see

You don't seem quite like the others
Respectin' me and your sisters and brothers
It would be awful, awful sad
To give love and you treat me so bad

Make me believe in you
Show me your love can be true
Do anythin' you want me to do
Make me believe, make me believe in you

Ain't no girl to be found
Without a mouth [?]
You just remember from hip to the lip
Before you ask any questions

I ain't for no heart wrappin'
So you can cut off that eyelids slappin'
Gonna be awful, awful sad
To give love and you treat it so bad

Make me believe in you
Show me your love can be true
Do anythin' you want me to do
Just make me believe
Make me believe, make me believe

    Ain't a girl to be found
    Without a mouth [Incomprehensible]
    You just remember from hip to the lip
    Before you ask any questions

    I ain't for no heart wrappin'
    So you can stop with your eyelids slappin'
    It's gonna be a real cryin' shame
    If I find that you're playin' in a game

    Make me believe in you
    Show me your love can be true
    Do anything you want me to do
    Make me believe in you

    Keepin' filled with all your temptation
    You know it leaves me with no inspiration
    Another chart playin' on me
    May have a hard time succeedin', you see

    You don't seem quite like the others
    Respectin' me and your sisters and brothers
    It would be awful, awful sad
    To give love and you treat me so bad

    Make me believe in you
    Show me your love can be true
    Do anythin' you want me to do

    I wouldn't say so.

    "Pharrell Williams has revealed he is a huge fan of Curtis Mayfield and used him as inspiration for his chart-topping track Happy."

    Queezy TV

    He told the Daily Star: "I was pretending to be the masterful Curtis Mayfield. I hope he likes it, I'm trying to do what he would've done."

    Jonathan Murphy

    LOL, if some of you that are commenting can't see how Curtis Mayfield is a huge influence on pharell, then you have no idea about

    James Brown may have been the funkiest, but Curtis had the funk and was the most soulful to boot. A true original. Great post.
