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".

Your situation's in need of help

You wear his ring like a cheap disguise

Don't believe it's just the clothes that make the man
No one else can love you like I know I can

[Chorus]
I got what you want
Takes more than money to turn you on
I got what you need
c'mon baby take a chance on me

Somethin' 'bout your smile seems counterfeit
It ain't in you to be a hypocrite
So he's got a mansion, got lots of cash
You live like a queen but feel like trash
I can save you if you put your heart in mine
Baby, can't you see, we're two of the same kind, Yeah

[Chorus]

Baby, there ain't nothin' keeping chains on you
Don't you let your head make up your mind

I can't get you off my mind
I'm afraid I may go blind
Won't you let me take you for a ride, yeah
