Hathaway, Donny - I Know It's You Lyrics

Nothing feels better than my baby's arms
They've around me a long time
Nothing feels better than some good news
Makes you glad to face the new times

I tell you nothing's better
When there's no need to look
'Cause you know who's there
I smile the world over

When I think of the past
How we past all the test
Through the good and the bad
And that's why I wanna see it by now

No, I ain't got nobody else in mind
I know it's you
No, I ain't got nobody else in mind
I know it's you

Home is the castle you built in my mind
I'm home anywhere, anytime
Peaceful and patience, easy taken time
It's so nice to have a simple mind

I tell you nothing's better
When there's no need to look
'Cause you know who's there
I smile the world over

When I think of the past
How we passed all the test
Through the good and the bad
And that's why I wanna see by now

No, I ain't got nobody else in mind
'Cause I know it's you
That's the reason I wanna stay right here
'Cause I ain't got nobody else in mind
I know it's you

No, I ain't got nobody else in mind
I know it's you

    Donnie you always sang the songs that were so beautiful. They touched the heart. "I hope you are singing with the Angels." You are alive and free from this world's problems and confusions now. You were the Songster for the Lovers of this world. You encouraged people to hang in there and hold on to their love. You are missed. You were a light to love. Thank you and I know that you are watching over your daughter Lalah she is following your lead. Rest In Peace in that beautiful place my Brother of Spirit.❤️

    Really I don't believe we have that deep love we once had as a people we lost something from these days of Donny and all the other brother who could really blow.

    Vicky De Maere

    Raphael Saddler: Same here (no wonder he jumped out of a window (he was too sensitive for this plastic world))

    one sided loyalty is for suckas

    Vicky De Maere how do you know he jumped?

  58. Benjamin Foster
