Stephanie Mills - I've Learned To Respect The Power Of Love Lyrics

Mmm...mmm... (Mmm...mmm...)

A dee dee dee dee doo doo...mmm...

I was a victim of my foolish thinking
Carelessly I've risked my love and my life
There's no self-pity, I admit I obliged
Overpowered by love I pretended to be blind

Faith has survived all the doubts I've summoned
My heart has stood all the failure and loss
Helpless I cannot further be driven, mmm...ooh...ooh...

I've learned to respect
The power of love
I've learned to respect (Oh...)
The power of love

I've learned to respect (Ooh...)
The power of love
I've learned to respect (Oh...)
The power of love

I was always afraid of being the one left hurt
Running away from the one thing
for which I've always yearned
I'm not ashamed to tell you
many nights I've tossed and I've turned

I've learned to respect (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
The power of love
I've learned to respect (Oh)
The power of love (Yes, I did)

I've learned to respect (Oh...ooh...)
The power of love (Woo, woo, woo)
I've learned to respect (Oh)
The power of love

I need you, I want you beside me {Beside me}
I trust you, I believe, I believe in you
I adore you, I love you so...
Don't you know I learned

I've learned to respect (I've learned)
The power of love (Oh... yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
I've learned to respect
The power of love (I've learned)

I've learned to respect
The power of love (Baby, baby, baby, I've learned the power of love)
I've learned to respect
The power of love (I learned it, yes, I did, oh)

I've learned to respect (Yeah)
The power of love (And I'm not ashamed to tell you, oh)
I've learned to respect
The power of love (Oh, honey, honey, I need you)

It's that power, oh
Baby, baby, baby, I've learned

I've learned to respect
The power of love (And I'm not ashamed to tell you that)
I've learned to respect (Oh)
The power of love

I'm talkin' about the power, yeah
I'm talkin' about the power, oh... {Power of love}, ooh...
The power, oh, ho
It's so good, it's so good to me
I'm talkin' about power, oh... {Power of love}
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

The power of love, ooh
Yeah, say it to me
You're talkin' about {Power of love}
And oh...let's talk about the yearnin', oh
And everybody, I-I-I wanna talk about the feelin', ooh... {Power of love} oh, ho...

I wanna talk about the screamin', ooh...
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Let's talk about the lovin' {Power of love}, oh, ho, oh, ho, oh, ho
Let's talk about the power {Power of love}, oh...
‘Cause I-I've learned the power

I've learned to respect (I've learned, I've learned, I've learned, oh...)
The power of love (I said I've learned)
I've learned to respect (Oh...)
The power of love (Baby, baby, I've learned)

I've learned to respect (Oh, and I'm not ashamed to tell you that)
The power of love (That I-I've learned)
I've learned to respect (Oh, I'm not ashamed to tell you)
The power of love (I've learned it, oh...)

I've learned to respect (And everybody, everybody needs to learn it, ooh...)
The power of love
I've learned to respect (Ooh...ooh...)
The power of love (Oh, baby, baby, I've learned it)

Please report any inappropriate comments to us I've learned to respect (Oh, ho, yeah, oh...)
The power of love
I've learned to respect
