LL Cool J - I Need Love
--------------------------------------------------

When Im alone in my room
Sometimes I stare at the wall
And in the back of my mind
I hear my conscience call
Tellin me I need a girl who's as sweet as a dove
For the first time in my life, I see I need love
There I was, gigglin about the games
That I had played with many hearts and Im not sayin no names
Then the thought occured, Tear drops made my eyes burn
As I said to myself, "look what you've done to her"
I can feel it inside, I cant explain how it feels
All I know is that I'll never dish another raw deal
Playin make believe, pretendin that I'm true
Holdin in my laugh as I say that I love you
Sayin amore, kissin you on the ear
Whisperin "I love you" and "I'll always be near"
Although I often reminsce, I cant believe that I've found
A desire for true love, floatin around
Inside my soul, because my soul is cold
One half of me deserves to be this way till I'm old
But the other half, needs affection and joy
And the warmth that is created by a girl and a boy
I Need Love

I Need Love

Romance, sheer delight, how sweet
I've got to find me a girl to make my life complete
You can scratch my back, we'll get cozy and huddle
I'll lay down my jacket so you can walk over a puddle
Give you a rose, pull out your chair before we eat
Kiss you on the cheek and say "Ooh girl, you're so sweet"
It's De Ja Vu, whenever Im with you
I can go on forever tellin you what I'll do
But where you at? you're neither here nor there
I swear, I cant find you anywhere
Damn sure you aint in my closet, or under my rug
This love search, is really makin me bugged
And if you know who you are, why dont you make yourself seen?
Take a chance with my love and you'll find out what I mean
Fantasies can run, but they cant hide
And when I find you Im'a pour all my love inside
I Need Love

I Need Love

I wanna kiss you, hold you, never scold you, just love you
Suck on your neck, caress you and rub you
Grind, mold, and never be alone
If you're not standin next to me you're on the phone
Cant you hear it in my voice? I need love bad
I've got money but love's something I never had
I need your ruby red lips, sweet face and all
I love you more than a man, who's ten feet tall
I watch the sun rise, in your eyes
We're so in love, when we hug, we become paralyzed
Our bodies explode in extacy unreal
You're as soft as a pillow and I'm as hard as steel
It's like a dream land, I cant lie, I've never been there
Maybe this is an experience that me and you can share
Clean and unsoiled, yet sweaty and wet
I swear to you, this is somethin I'll never forget
I Need Love

I Need Love

See what I mean? Ive changed, im no longer
A playboy on the run, I need somethin that's stronger
Friendship, trust, honor respect, admiration
This whole experience has been such a revelation
It's taught me love, and how to be a real man
To always be considerate and do all I can
Protect you, you're my lady and you mean so much
My body tingles all over with the slightest touch
Of your hand, and understand, I'll be frozen in time
Till we meet face to face and you tell me you're mine
If I find you girl, I swear Ill be a good man
I'm not gonna leave it, in destiny's hand
I cant sit and wait, for my princess to arive
I gotta stuggle and fight, to keep my dream alive
I'd search the whole world for that special girl
And when I finally find you, watch our love unfurl
I Need Love

I Need Love

Girl, listen to me. When I be sittin in my room, all alone, starin at the
wall, fantasies, they go through my mind. And, I've come to realize that,
I need true love. And if you want to give it to me girl, make yourself seen

I'll be waitin, I love you.
