Love me right 
What's the matter with you 
Hold me tight 
Why must I tell you what to do 
Smilin', smilin' 
Comes as no surprise 
Smilin' ain't hidin' 
What I see in your eyes 
The story goes much deeper 
Than the eye can see yes it do 
Stop runnin' a game 
I can tell you're avoiding me 

Oh ain't nothin' 
I wouldn't pay 
Just to hear, hear you say 
I love you, I need you 

Love me right 
What's the matter with you 
Hold me tight 
Why must I tell you what to do 
Smilin', smilin' 
Comes as no surprise 
Smilin' ain't hidin' 
What I see in your eyes 

You got the love 
Gimme the strength 
To keep on livin' 
Whatever it is 
I can't do without what cha givin' 

Oh, ain't nothin' 
I wouldn't pay 
Just to hear, just hear you say 
I love you, I need you 

You got the love 
To gimme the strength 
To keep on livin' yeah 
Whatever it is 
I can't do without 
What cha givin'
