Jackson 5 - I Wanna Be Where You Are Lyrics




Ooh, can it be I stayed away too long
Did I leave your mind when I was gone
It's not my thing trying to get back
But this time let me tell you where I'm at

You don't have to worry 'cause I'm coming
Back to where I should have always stayed
And now I've learned the meaning to your story
And it's enough love for me to stay

Can it be I stayed away too long
Did I leave your mind when I was gone
Well, it's not my thing trying to get back
But this time let me tell you where I'm at

I wanna, wanna be where you are (ooh, aah)
Anywhere you are (ooh, aah)
I wanna, wanna be where you are (ooh, aah)
Everywhere you are (ooh, aah, ooh)

Please don't close the door to our future
There's so many things we haven't tried
I gonna love you better than I used to
And give you all the love I have inside

[Instrumental Interlude]
Ooh

I wanna, wanna be where you are (ooh, aah)
Any, any, Anywhere you are (ooh, aah)
I wanna, wanna be where you are (ooh, aah)
I gotta, gotta be where you are (ooh, aah)

I wanna be, I wanna be (ooh, yea, yea, baby now)
I wanna be, I wanna be (ooh, ooo)
I wanna be, I wanna be (ooh, now, now, yea, yea)
I wanna be, I wanna be (ooh)

I wanna be, I wanna be (ooh, now, now, baby)
I wanna be, I wanna be (ooh)

    It's not my thing trying to get back
    But this time let me tell you where I'm at

    You don't have to worry cause I'm coming
    Back to where I should have always stayed
    And now I've heard the maybe to your story
    And it's enough love for me to stay

    Can it be I stayed away too long
    Did I leave your mind when I was gone
    Well, it's not my thing trying to get back
    But this time let me tell you where I'm at

    I want to, want to be where you are (ooh aah)
    Anywhere you are (ooh aah)
    I want to, want to be where you are (ooh aah)
    Everywhere you are (ooh aah)

    Please don't close the door to our future
    There's so many things we haven't tried
    I gonna love you better than I used to
    And give you all the love I have inside

    Oh

    I want to, want to be where you are (oh aah)
    Any, any, anywhere you are (oh aah)
