lyricist: Gerry Goffin

Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you were the key to my peace of mind

'Cause you make me feel,
You make me feel,
You make me feel like
A natural woman

When my soul was in the lost-and-found
You came along to claim it
I didn't know just what was wrong with me
Till your kiss helped me name it
Now I'm no longer doubtful of what I'm living for
'Cause if I make you happy I don't need no more

'Cause you make me feel,
You make me feel,
You make me feel like
A natural woman

Oh, baby, what you've done to me
You make me feel so good inside
And I just want to be close to you
You make me fell so alive

'Cause you make me feel,
You make me feel,
You make me feel like
A natural woman

Baby, baby, baby, this is just to say
How much I'm gonna miss you,
But believe, while I'm away,
That I didn't mean to hurt you
Don't you know that I'd rather hurt myself?
(I'd hurt myself, I'd hurt myself)

Baby, baby, baby (baby), think of me sometimes (baby)
Because if loving you was so wrong (baby), then I'm guilty of this crime
(Guilty, I'm guilty, I'm guilty)
I'm bewildered, I'm lonely, and I'm loveless,
Without you to hold my hand (Reach out for me, boy)
If you'd just understand (Reach out to me, right now)

Those that we love, we foolishly make cry,
Then sometimes feel it's best to say goodbye, goodbye
But what's inside can't be denied
The power (power of love), the power of love (power of love) is my only guide
Baby (oh), baby (oh)
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, this is just to say
Just how much I'm really gonna miss you,
But believe, while I'm away,
(I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you, I need you)
That I really didn't mean, I didn't mean, I didn't mean to hurt you
Don't you know that, that I'd rather hurt myself? (I'd hurt myself)

Baby, I need you, I need you, I need you
If I did you wrong, if I did you wrong (I'd hurt myself)
I need you, I need you, I need you
If I did you wrong (I'd hurt myself)
