Have I told you
Lately that I love you
If I didn't, darlin',
You see, I'm so sorry.
Didn't I reach out
And hold you
In these lovin' arms
Well, if I didn't, oh baby.
Well, I'm so sorry

[Chorus]
When I realized that you need love too,
Gonna spend my life makin' love to you.
Got to be a lover.
Have mercy.
