How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby
I wanna stop and thank you baby, yes I do

How sweet it is to be loved by you, feels so fine
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night
Wondering where would I be without you in my life
