When I'm alone in my room
And in the back of my mind
Telling me I need a girl who's as sweet as a dove
There I was, giggling about the games
Then the thought occurred, Tear drops made my eyes burn
I can feel it inside, I can't explain how it feels
Playing make believe, pretending that I'm true
Saying amore, kissing you on the ear
Although I often reminisce, I can't believe that I've found
Inside my soul, because my soul is cold
But the other half, needs affection and joy
I need love
I need love
Romance, sheer delight, how sweet
You can scratch my back, we'll get cozy and huddle
Give you a rose, pull out your chair before we eat
It's De Ja Vu, whenever I'm with you
But where you at? You're neither here nor there
Damn sure you ain't in my closet, or under my rug
And if you know who you are, why don't you make yourself seen?
Fantasies can run, but they can't hide
I need love
I need love
I wanna kiss you, hold you, never scold you, just love you
Grind, mold, and never be alone
Can't you hear it in my voice? I need love bad
I need your ruby red lips, sweet face and all
I watch the sun rise, in your eyes
Our bodies explode in extacy unreal
It's like a dream land, I can't lie, I've never been there
Clean and unsoiled, yet sweaty and wet
I need love
I need love
See what I mean? I've changed, I'm no longer
Friendship, trust, honor respect, admiration
It's taught me love, and how to be a real man
Protect you, you're my lady and you mean so much
Of your hand, and understand, I'll be frozen in time
If I find you girl, I swear I'll be a good man
I can't sit and wait, for my princess to arrive
I'd search the whole world for that special girl
I need love
I need love
Girl, listen to me.
Fantasies, they go through my mind.
And if you want to give it to me girl, make yourself seen.
