Well, if you loved me half as much as I love you
You couldn't worry me half as much as you do
Woah, you're so nice to me when there's no one else around
But you only build me up to take me down

Oh, but if you missed me half as much as I miss you
Well, you couldn't stay away half as much as you do
Woah, I know that I could never be this blue
Well, if you only loved me half as much as I love you

I know that I, I know that I could never be this blue
Woah, if you only loved me half as much as I love you

Well, as I love you
Oh, as I love you

Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »
