Jermaine Jackson - You Need To Be Loved Lyrics




Come and get it
Come and get it
Come and get my love

Come and get it
Come and get it
Come and get my love
Come and get it
Come and get it
Come and get my love

Something's on your mind
Something hard to find
Every now and then you smile
Slips away just for a while
Don't you know your tears
Can run like water here
There's no need to feel ashamed
If you let me, I'll explain

You need to be loved
No matter what you say
You need to be loved
'Cause there will come a day when
There'll be people who will get beneath your skin
And they'll take advantage when you let them in
Girl, the world is full of fools
Who will hurt you being cruel
Just like knives into your heart
Unkind words will find their mark

So let me have the chance
To give you some confidence
'Cause it hurts me seeing how
You don't trust nobody now
Oh, yesterday is gone
And mistakes can make you strong
They will help you realize
What you're missing in your life

You need to be loved
That's what's missing, girl (Baby)
You need to be loved
Sheltered from the world
You're so vulnerable, so soft and delicate
You're the kind someone like me just wants to protect
I've been waiting here for you
Just like all the time I do
After you have tried the rest
You will find my love is best, oh

Girl, yeah
(You know I love you
You know I love you)
Oh, girl
(My love, my love)

Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love
Come and get it (Need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love

Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Don't you wanna know
Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Just before you go

Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love
Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love

Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Don't you wanna know
Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Just before you go

Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love
Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love

Oh, baby baby, can't you see
I'm the one who's really gonna set you free
Yeah
Just before you go

Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Don't you wanna know
Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Just before you go

Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love
Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love

Oh, sugar sugar, don't you know (You need to be loved)
I'll never ever let you go
Oh, baby (You need to be loved)

Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Don't you wanna know
Hey, girl (You need to be loved)
Just before you go

Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love
Come and get it (You need to be loved)
Come and get it
Come and get my love
(You need to)

    I remember this song. It was the only song that got airplay on this ‘Feel The Fire’ album. Actually not bad, I thought it should have gotten a little more airplay.

  10. Tyrone Williams

    Fantastic song by Jermaine. Clearly inspired by Earth, Wind & Fire...but hinted at what Switch would sound like when they came out.

  11. Karen Emerson

    I will Love this song FOREVER❤❤❤❤

  12. Kirmet Lyons

    A lot of ppl slept on this album. Too bad

    Ced Bigby

    MsTexas73

  16. Richard Jacobs

    Yo Jermaine we Sagittarians are strong willed people ...always rely on GODS strength and be independent...the J5 left you at Motown but you made thru! Richard Jacobs...my name should ring a bell...T.k.Carter.Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs?

  17. Marcos Samuel

  21. jermaineidole

  22. Muzic lvr

    This is my jam!!!   

  23. Errique Young

    sounds like a "switch"or "debarge" song……….good song jj

    Foster Mac

    NOPE. Sounds like an EWF song. Actually embodies the musical stylings of the late 70's. Motown didnt maket it correctly. Should have been up there with the Confunkshuns of the world.

    IKESQUARED

    It sounds like a Switch song because some of the the musicians from Switch assisted Jermaine on writing, arranging and production on this and some other cuts in the late 70’s.
    You guys have great ears!

  24. Bkkersey93

    I just picked this album up never before opened and was surprised to hear the pitch the album was really made. The mp3 version i had was higher pitched.

  25. hayamint

    Great song ♥_♥

  26. 達夫大本

    カミキリ カミキリ my heart ~ くせになるリズム

  27. BlackBeltJones

    He never gets the respect as one of the baddest bass players of all time.  Am I wrong?

    MsTexas73

    Neither Jermaine not Tito and Randy get the respect they deserve as MUSICIANS. All those brothas got MAD SKILLS.

    7th Heaven

    You ain't never lied!

  28. DoubleEdged7

    For years I thought the name of the song was come and get it which explains why I couldn't find it on YouTube or when it came out

    Christian Bailey

    This exact same thing happened to me! Seached for so long to find it. So weird that could happen but it did.

  29. MsTexas73

    This is my tune right here.  Makes me sad how folks sleep on Jermaine's music...ESPECIALLY his 70s and EARLY 80s cuts.  Released BEFORE Switch debuted...but probably around the time he and Hazel were working with Switch on their first album.  

    LadySoul502

    You already know! Jermaine was no joke on the bass. Not only that, the Brotha was fine as hell. Bashful, yet he had charisma.

    MsTexas73

    @LadySwag502 OK!  Exactly!

  30. MusicLover P

    That is a very good album but this song has always been my fav off of this album i'm glad i own all of the J5,Jermaine,Mike,Jackie and Marlon solo albums as well.

  31. Derrick Williams

    I remember this song, my Aunt had this Jermaine had some nice songs, so did Randy

  32. Adam Koskotnický

    Earth wind and fire - inspired song,its same genre..

  33. 1WisdomNPower

    Me first! :-)

  34. ThePoacherz

    With a hint of Switch!

  35. ludojo662019

    Please make the video's mobile availabile, thanks for all the hard work, we appreciate it very much. I'm a truck driver, and i love to listen to Jermaine's music while driving cross country, it's soul therapy.

  36. Erick L

    somewhere between EWF and Roy Ayres.....tight!

  37. Izabellitaa

    YEAHH I need to be loved by YOU JERMAINE=);)
