Hyman, Phyllis - When I Give My Love (This Time) Lyrics

When I give my love
This time
I'm gonna make it last forever more
And when I give my love this time
I'm gonna give it all I got for sure

No more mistakes that's my resolution
Lord knows I've been through so many changes
Stick to the path that's the solution
It's for sure I won't go wrong

At last I've found someone
Someone that I can trust
Feel good about myself
Feel like nobody else

When I give my love
This time
I'm gonna make it last forever more
And when I give my love
This time
I'm gonna think it through and be for sure

Follow the book that's my intention
The book of life
The book of love
To be hurt by love is too painful to mention
But you learn from experience

At last I got someone
Someone I can trust
Feel good about myself
Feel like nobody else
Ooh baby

When I give myself this time
I'm gonna give it all I've got for sure

(Last forever) I'm gonna make it last
I'm gonna make it last
(Last forever) yeah-yeah-yeah
Giving my love to you baby
(Giving my love to you)
Oh gonna make it last
(Giving up, giving up)
Forever more
(Giving up, giving up)
I'm gonna make it last
I'm gonna make it last
Ooh when I give my love this time
Ooh forever and ever
When I give my love (next time I give my love) I'm gonna think it through
And be for sure
I will have my eyes open baby
Yes I will
Never take advantage of my love
For you baby
Got my eyes on you
Ooh when I give my love to you baby yeah
I'm gonna make it last
Forever and ever
Oh forever more
And I'm gonna give it all I have for sure
Hey I won't go wrong
No at last I found someone
Someone that I can trust
Forever and ever
Last forever and ever
I found myself
Ooh baby
Last forever (don't have to look for love) and ever
Last forever and ever
(Don't have to look no more)
Oh no, no
Last forever and ever
No, no no more
No ain't got to look for love no more
Gonna make it work
This time
No, no, no

    Miss Phyllis... you just dont know how your voice, lyrics, musicianship has a huge impact all over the world. Your legions of fans still celebrate you and truly truly loved you. I wish you could have seen it and really understood that you were and still are very much loved and celebrated. Yes, we had Whitney, Chaka and Angela Bofill but you were in a league of your own. Your own lane that could never be disputed or duplicated! You are a legend and you left many of fan shattered and wishing you would of felt the impact of our loss.

  50. Jourdan Phillips

    Who is listening to this awesome woman in 2019 ???? Gosh my heart is hyperventilating every time I hear her voice and remember the first time I heard just few seconds to her voice about 6 years ago on a radio station play one of her songs and i felt something that stuck with me till today and i cant get enough of her music. I have managed to download as much song 6 years ago and wen i hear people talk mention her name or a song comes on i get all up in my emotions. I never got to meet her or see her in concert but thanks to YouTube and the uploaders for aiding in us younger folks to appreciate what musically gifts she was has blessed us with.

  90. Prettybrown Eyes

    Who’s still listening in 2019💕

  91. Judy Cruz

    To me one of the greatest woman vocalists. So sad her life was cut short. She had it all but felt the loneliness of that special one missing in her life. Rest in peace Queen. May your music live on.

  92. Mark W.

    I live in Austin, i first heard this song skipping into Austin from over 350+ miles away from collage Station on a clear "BEAUTIFUL" Sunday morning with a (STRONG) Signal back in 1993. Once i heard the words to this song i just had to stop and think how well put and how beautiful the words to this song is. Its clear what she is saying, She will give her love and her heart this time!

  93. annmarieanderson30

    This woman sang her life; the confusion, failed love, abandonment, and self esteem issues. I wish she had the strength to stand on her own and understand her self worth. She wasn't able to see what we saw in her. We saw a rich, raw, unique, beautiful and super talented human being. God, we have to remind people how special they are and that they matter.

  94. Lynette Townsend

    Sing it Phyllis Hyman

  95. Olatunbosun Bode-Alaaka

    Phyllis has since been singing in my head.

  96. e46 enthusiastic

    This GODDESS this title this song these words this is what real music is this is the INCOMPATIBLE this is Ms PHYLLIS HYMAN in my Phyllis kind of mood

  97. Frances Rush

    Classic Phyllis Hyman! RIH! My Jam here! Played the grooves off of her Albums! Loved me some Phyllis and miss her! Much Love!
