You know, baby, I spent a lot of time running away from love,
Because I didn't wanna be tied down when I afraid I might miss something.
But you know life is funny.
I was missing out on something anyway.
I was missing some of your good love.
And you being the most beautiful and considerate person that you are,
You've shown me nothing but kindness, tenderness, and respect.
And that's why I'm here.
It takes a grown man to admit why he's a fool and darling, I've been a fool and I'm sorry.
But now that I'm back, baby, anything you want, anything you think you want, I can get it for you.
Just do this for me.

Put your hand in mine.
Girl, don't waste no time.
I love you and that's all that matters.
Place your trust in me.
Darling, you will see the kind of love that makes the world go 'round.

You're my woman.
You're the one that wraps your love around me so tight.
I can feel it.
I can feel it in me, girl.  Come on.

(Tell me again) Tell me again, my baby.  Whoa.
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
We will be so much more, girl.
(Tell me again) Tell me again, girl.  Come on.
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
Lovers and friends, my baby.
Yes we will.
Yes we will.  Listen.

I've waited for so long.
Girl, with you I belong.
I don't care about age because that's just a number.
A beat to me and you.
There is so much we can do.
We can start right now.
Let me love all your mind, body and soul.

Oooh.  You're my woman and forever you're mine.
And I'm so glad you gave me a chance, baby,
To woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo for you, baby,
'Cause I can do it.  I can, I can do it good.

(Tell me again) Woo, oooh, oooh, oooh, baby.
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
Would you tell me that, baby.
Tell me that, darling,
(Tell me again) That we're gonna be lovers, girl.
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
Because I know that I can love you right.
(Tell me again) Girl, I will take care of you.
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
I'll buy your house for you, baby,
And I'll buy one for your mama too.  I will.
(Tell me again) If you're feeling love like I do, just tell me
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
That you want me, baby.  That you want me now.
Come on.

Ahhh.  Ah, ah, ah, hoo.
Ah, ah, hoo, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.
That's how I feel, baby, when you touch me.
We're gonna get it on all night long,
(Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh.)
'Cause I came back for you, baby, and I know what to do.
(Tell me again) Tell me.
(That we'll be lovers and friends.)
We will be lovers.  Ah, baby.
