Luther Vandross - I Wanted Your Love Lyrics

All of the band was on time for rehearsal
And played everything just right
Then came the news telling me not to worry
The show is selling out tonight
Well, the lights went on and suddenly the crowd began to scream
And as you could well imagine, it was like living a dream
Oh, but when the lights went down and the standing "O" was done
I was just another lonely guy who didn't have no one

I wanted your love
Your love, your love, love, love, love, love

So busy daydreaming 'bout you baby
I didn't even hear the phone
Then when my friends rang the doorbell it scared me
They said, "we're so glad you're home!
You just won a million dollars and a trip around the world?
Better get yourself and forget about that girl
They thought I was acting crazy not to get excited too
But all the money in the world could never take the place of you

All over the city the lights were so pretty
The holiday was filled with cheer
The stars really glistened and lovers were kissin'
It was the special part of the year
So what a perfect time it was to find someone to say "I do"
Thought that I could still be happy even though she wasn't you
We had told the world we were going to ring the wedding bell
But when I really thought about it, I was really lying to myself
