I've been loving you too long to stop now

You were tired and you want to be free
My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit to me
Oh I've been loving you a little too long
I don't want to stop now, oh
With you my life

I can't stop now 

You were tired and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger as our affair affair grows old
I've been loving you a little too long, long
To stop now
Oh, oh, oh 
I've been loving you a little bit too long
I don't want to stop now no, no, no 

Don't make me stop now, no baby 
I'm down on my knees please, don't make me stop now 
I love you, I love you
I love you with all of my heart 
And I can't stop now
Please, please don't make me stop now
