If I wanted to, I'd have anything
I could ever need, anything indeed
But if I can't have you I'd be lost within
And everything else baby
Would really not be worth anythin'

And I've really got to tell you
Exactly how I feel
And make you understand
That love ain't playin' this time
This is for real, real

And if I could, I'd change what I am
