Please return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done

And, oh, baby
I cry myself to sleep at night
For fear of a-never holdin' you tight at all, baby (whoa, baby)
I miss ya more with each passin' day
Every night on my knees I pray
Oh, oh, baby (please)

Return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
For I am just a lonely boy

I'm sorry for the wrong I've done
Now I know how it feels to lose that special someone (whoa, baby)
I need you more than words can say
Without your love I can't face another day
Oh, (please)

Return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
I am just a lonely one

Oh, no, no-o-o-o, babe
If there's a heav'n above you'll be my one and only love (and, oh, baby)
I can't control the glow in me
Girl, come on and an' see about me

(Oh, ple-ea-ease)
Return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
I am just a lonely one

I'm a lonely one
I'm a lonely one
I'm a lonely one
I'm just a lonely... one...
(I am just a)

Please, return your love to me, girl
Forgive me for the wrong I've done
Without your love, I'm just no good
I am just a lonely one
