About You Give Good Love

"You Give Good Love" is a song by American recording artist Whitney Houston from her eponymous debut album in 1985. It was written by La Forrest 'La La' Cope and produced by Kashif. When La La sent Kashif a copy of the song, originally offered to Roberta Flack, he thought it would be a better fit for Houston and told Arista he would be interested in recording with her. The song was released on February 22, 1985 as the album's lead single. The release of "You Give Good Love" was designed to give Houston a noticeable position and standing within the black music market first, which topped the US Billboard Hot Black Singles chart. However, it also made an unexpected crossover pop hit, peaking at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, her first of what would be many Top 10 hits. It was later certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The single was released officially in some countries such as Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and United Kingdom, but failed to make the top 40 in the countries except Canada, where it reached the top ten. The song won Favorite Soul/R&B Single at the 13th American Music Awards, and was nominated for Best R&B Song and Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female at the 28th Grammy Awards in 1986.

I found out what I've been missing
Always on the run
I've been looking for someone

Now you're here like you've been before
And you know just what I need
It took some time for me to see

That you give good love to me, baby
So good, take this heart of mine into your hands
You give good love to me, 
Never too much
Baby, you give good love

Never stopping I was always searching
For that perfect love
The kind that girls like me dream of

Now you're here like you've been before
And you know just what I need
It took some time for me to see

That you give good love to me, baby
So good, take this heart of mine into your hands
You give good love to me,
Never too much
Baby, you give good love

Now I've stopped looking around
Each night, what this life's all about
Our love is here to stay, to stay
Baby, you give good love

So good
Take this heart of mine
Into your hands
You give good love to me
Never too much
No, no, no, no, no
You give good love to me
So good, so good

You give me good love
Good love, good love
Yeah you do
You know what I need
