Lou Rawls - Need You Forever Lyrics




Today we're friends
Oh but tomorrow
We could be lovers, baby
You see it happened yesterday
You thought I wanted to play
But girl I wanna stay
Right here with you

You say you wanna know
You wanna know, you wanna know
If I really love you, baby
You see ya mean more to me
I'm chained and I can't break free
Your love has a hold on me

You see that I need you forever!
I need you forever
I need you forever
Starting right now

You oughta understand
That I ain't playing with ya, woman
I'm for real, girl
This time I'm for real, baby
You see it happened yesterday
When you kissed me that-a way
Not another day, baby, not another day
Can I spend without you

I need you forever
I need you forever
I need you forever
Starting right now

I need you forever
I need you forever
I need you forever
Starting right now

I need you forever
I need you forever
I need you forever
Starting right now

I need you forever
I need you forever
I need you forever
Starting right now

You see, you mean more to me
I'm chained and I can't break free
Your love has a hold...
You got a hold on me

You see that I need you forever
I need you forever
I need you forever
Starting right now

I need you forever
I need you forever

Lou Rawls Need You Forever Comments
  1. Robert Chatman

    This song reminds me of my first girlfriend. I sang this song to her while she visited from Ohio, when her visit was over, she went back to Ohio. I was sad and lonely for a few weeks, but I got over it. I still sing this song today. Always will. I just love this soulful song. Rest in heaven. Lou Rawls.
