See, they don't know nothing.
They don't know nothing.
All this stuff been wound over and redone, it's alright.
I'm glad they're getting there.
I've been in this business for a long, long time and even I didn't know where the music was going for a while.
And I was saying, "When are they gonna find that magic?
When is the music gonna get back to simple and basic?"
'Cause I wanna go back to a time when the music touched your heart and your soul and your mind and your body.
I wanna go back to a time when there were blue lights in the basement.
Y'all know what I'm talking about.
I wanna go back to a time when slow dancing was still in style.
And when you got out on the dance floor, you touched your partner.
You didn't have to look for him.
I want to go back to a time when the music made you feel like you wanted to fall in love.
And you want to drive up to Look Out Mountain and still have enough mystery in it not to tell what you did when you got there.
I wanna go back to a time when the music was one, 'cause a part of my life sent me to the prom with my skirt on.
Even if I did drive myself, I wanna go back.
I wanna go find these people that made that kind of music, you know.
And I just wanna tell them thank you.
Thank you for giving us romance and mystery.
I wanna find Nat King Cole and Billy Eckstine and Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and the Four Tops and the Temptations and the Pips.
I wanna find them and I wanna just walk up them and say, "You did it!  You found that magic!"
I just wanna, I wanna touch old Teddy Pendergrass and I wanna tell him thank you for saying...

(IF YOU DON'T KNOW ME BY NOW)
Of all the things that we've been through,
You should understand me like I understand you.
'Cause babe, I know the difference between right and wrong.
Ain't gonna do nothing stupid to break up our happy home.
Ahhh, don't get so excited if I come home late at night,
'Cause we only act like children when we argue, fuss and fight.  Oh, oh.

If you don't know me by now,
(You will never, never, never know me.) No, you won't.
(Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.) Oh, sing it one more time for me.
If you don't know me by now,
You will never, never, never know me.
Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.

Then along came the Spinners and Philippe said...

(LOVE DON'T LOVE NOBODY)
Sometimes a boy will come and go.
You'll reach for love.
But life won't let you know
That in the end you'll still be loving him.
But then he's gone.
You're all alone.  Oooh.
I never learned (I never learned) to give myself.  (Oh no.)
But I've been a fool.  (Yes I have.)
Right now, I need someone else.
Just like Little Boy Blue, I blow my horn for you.
Just lead me home.
I should've known, oh, oh.

It takes a fool to learn 
That love don't love nobody.  (Yes it does.)
It takes a fool to learn 
That love don't love no one.  (Oh, yes it does.)
(It takes a fool to learn) Sometimes you gotta suffer,
(That love don't love nobody.) Make your bed warm, gotta sleep.  Well, well.
It takes a fool to learn
That love don't love no one.
No one.
(Oooh, yeah.)

I wanna go back to a time when the music touched your heart and your soul and your mind and your body.
I wanna go back to a time when the music made ya feel like you're falling in love.
One day, I was driving down the expressway and this song came on the radio.
I had to pull over to the side and stop, 'cause I felt like getting out and saying, "Oh, they finally found the message!  They finally found the magic!"
I wanted to tell them thank you, thank you Boyz II Men for telling them one more time...

(END OF THE ROAD)
We belong together
And you know that I'm right.
Why do you play with my heart?
Why do you play with my mind?
Said we'd be together.
Said it never would die.
How could you love me and leave me and never say goodbye?

I can't sleep at night without holding you tight.
Each time I try, I just break down and die.
Pain in my head, oh, I'd rather be dead
Spinning around and around.

Why don't we go to the end of the road.
Still I can't let go.
It's so natural, you belong to me.
I belong to you.

Boy, I know you really love me.
You just don't realize.  (Don't realize)
You've never been there before.
It's only your first time.
Baby, I forgive you.  (Oooh, baby, baby.)
Baby, you'll try.  (Come on, baby.)
We should be happy together forever, you and I.

If you love me again like you loved me before,
(Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.)
This time I want you to love me much more.  (So much more)
This time instead, just come to my bed (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.)
And baby, just don't let me down.

Why don't we go to the end of the road.
End of the road.
End of the road.  (Still I can't let go.)
I just can't, I just can't, I just can't let you go, baby.
(It's so natural,) It's so natural,
(You belong to me.) You belong to me.
I belong to you.
Oh, go to the end of the road.
To the end of the road.
I just can't let you go, baby.  (Still I can't let go.)
It's so natural, (It's so natural,)
You belong to me.  (You belong to me.)
I belong to you.

And I wanna say I'm lonely.  (Lonely)
I'm lonely.  (Lonely)
I'm lonely.  (Lonely)
Hey, hey, lo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-onely.
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.  (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.)
Come on, follow me!  (Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.  Oooh!)
Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

Why don't we go to the end of the road.
(Still I can't let go.) Still I can't, I can't, I can't let you go, baby.
It's so natural, (It's so natural,)
You belong to me.  (You belong to me.)
I belong to you.
Oh, go (to the end of the road.) I gotta go.
I gotta go to the end of the road.
(Still I can't let go.) I just can't, I just can't, I just can't let you go, baby.
It's so natural, (It's so natural,)
You belong to me.  (You belong to me.)
I belong to you.
I belong to you.  I gotta go.

Why don't we go to the end of the road.
Still I can't let go.
It's so natural, you belong to me.
I belong to you.
Go to the end of the road.
Still I can't let go.
It's so natural, you belong to me.
I belong to you.

LES BROWN: It's something that we're all earning for, looking for, wanting for, hoping for until we find it.
No, no, don't give up.
It's the universal language that touches everybody.
Love is the one common thing the world has in common.
No matter who you are or where you live, the questions and answers are all the same.
