Richard Marx

Richard Noel Marx (born September 16, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American adult contemporary and pop/rock singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. He had a stream of hit singles in the late 1980s and 1990s, including "Endless Summer Nights", "Right Here Waiting", "Now and Forever", and "Hazard". Although most of his major hit songs were slow ballads, many of his songs had a classic rock style, such as "Don't Mean Nothing", "Should've Known Better," "Satisfied," and "Too Late To Say Goodbye". Marx placed himself in the record books by being the first solo artist to have his first seven singles hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart (3, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 4).

I whispered you
Words I thought I'd never say
We played the game
But then we tossed the rules away
Could deny it
Justify it
But we both know we went too far
Oh, I can feel you
And I need you
No matter wherever you are

[Chorus]
I don't want to watch my love come crashing down
But I can't lie to my heart
I don't really want your memory hangin' 'round
But baby I just can't lie to my heart

I have loved you
Longer than you've even known
When you hurt I hurt
I'm your flesh and you're my bone
If I could only
Be two people
Darlin' I swear we'd both be with you
Oh, I know I'm selfish
But I'm helpless
I  want you and nothing else will do

[Chorus]

I won't pretend anymore
Been hiding too long
I won't go on like before
I'm not that strong
I can feel it when I'm near you
It's not healthy to need you this way
Try to fight it, get inside it
But this pain is stronger than me and it won't go away

[Chorus]
