When I"m alone in my roomSometimes I stare at the wallAnd in the back of my mindI hear my conscience callTelling me I need a girl who"s as sweet as a doveFor the first time in my life, I see I need loveThere I was, giggling about the gamesThat I had played with many hearts and I"m not saying no namesThen the thought occurred, Tear drops made my eyes burnAs I said to myself, "Look what you"ve done to her"I can feel it inside, I can"t explain how it feelsAll I know is that I"ll never dish another raw dealPlaying make believe, pretending that I"m trueHolding in my laugh as I say that I love youSaying amore, kissing you on the earWhispering "I love you" and "I"ll always be near"Although I often reminisce, I can"t believe that I"ve foundA desire for true love, floating aroundInside my soul, because my soul is coldOne half of me deserves to be this way till I"m oldBut the other half, needs affection and joyAnd the warmth that is created by a girl and a boyI need loveI need loveRomance, sheer delight, how sweetI"ve got to find me a girl to make my life completeYou can scratch my back, we"ll get cozy and huddleI"ll lay down my jacket so you can walk over a puddleGive you a rose, pull out your chair before we eatKiss you on the cheek and say "Ooh girl, you"re so sweet"It"s De Ja Vu, whenever I"m with youI can go on forever telling you what I"ll doBut where you at? You"re neither here nor thereI swear, I can"t find you anywhereDamn sure you ain"t in my closet, or under my rugThis love search, is really making me buggedAnd if you know who you are, why don"t you make yourself seen?Take a chance with my love and you"ll find out what I meanFantasies can run, but they can"t hideAnd when I find you I"ma pour all my love insideI need loveI need loveI wanna kiss you, hold you, never scold you, just love youSuck on your neck, caress you and rub youGrind, mold, and never be aloneIf you"re not standing next to me you"re on the phoneCan"t you hear it in my voice? I need love badI"ve got money but love"s something I never hadI need your ruby red lips, sweet face and allI love you more than a man, who"s ten feet tallI watch the sun rise, in your eyesWe"re so in love, when we hug, we become paralyzedOur bodies explode in extacy unrealYou"re as soft as a pillow and I"m as hard as steelIt"s like a dream land, I can"t lie, I"ve never been thereMaybe this is an experience that me and you can shareClean and unsoiled, yet sweaty and wetI swear to you, this is something I"ll never forgetI need loveI need loveSee what I mean? I"ve changed, I"m no longerA playboy on the run, I need something that"s strongerFriendship, trust, honor respect, admirationThis whole experience has been such a revelationIt"s taught me love, and how to be a real manTo always be considerate and do all I canProtect you, you"re my lady and you mean so muchMy body tingles all over with the slightest touchOf your hand, and understand, I"ll be frozen in timeTill we meet face to face and you tell me you"re mineIf I find you girl, I swear I"ll be a good manI"m not gonna leave it, in destiny"s handI can"t sit and wait, for my princess to arriveI gotta struggle and fight, to keep my dream aliveI"d search the whole world for that special girlAnd when I finally find you, watch our love unfurlI need loveI need loveGirl, listen to me.When I be sitting in my room, all alone, staring 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 waiting, I love you.
