Ooh...ooh...ooh...yeah

It seems the lovers win every time
You must hold on to the love that you find
In the world of mass confusion one thing I find
It seems the lovers win every time

You must abide by the Golden Rule
Do unto others as they do unto you
‘Cause what goes around comes around, hear what I say
Why look tomorrow, if it's here today

It seems the lovers win every time
You must hold on to the love that you find
In the world of mass confusion one thing I find
It seems the lovers win every time

My love's getting stronger every day
I keep the feeling {The feeling} in the love we make
If you worry ‘bout your feelings, they'll be fine
‘Cause I'm a lover, baby {A lover}, I won't let you go

So baby, don't let people interfere
Just come on and love me your way
‘Cause there's nothing better than to know
That you are my lover {Perfect lover}

Oh...oh...oh...
I really wanna be your lover, girl
Oh...
I really wanna be your lover

It seems the lovers win every time
You must hold on to the love that you find
In the world of mass confusion one thing I find
It seems the lovers win every time

I really wanna be your lover, girl
I really wanna be your lover

Don't you know the lovers, the lovers win every time
You must hold on to the love that you find
In the world of mass confusion one thing I find
It seems the lovers win every time

I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Wanna be your lover)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Hey, hey, hey, yeah)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Here with me, girl)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Oh...oh...oh...)

The lovers win every time
You must hold on to, yeah, the love that you find
In the world of mass confusion one thing I find
It seems the lovers win every time, oh, baby

I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (I got to be, babe)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Want to be your number)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Oh...oh...love you, girl)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Oh...oh...oh...)

I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (I wanna be your lover)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Got to be your lover)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (I wanna be your man)
I really wanna be, I really wanna be your lover (Hey...lady)
