I don't know why but I'm feeling so sad
I'd long to try something I'd never had
Never had no kissing, ooh, what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

The night is cold and I'm so all alone
I'd give my soul just to call you my own
Got a moon above me but no one's here to love me
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

I've heard it said that the thrill of romance
Can be like a heavenly dream
And I'll go to bed with a prayer
That you'll make love, love to me strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet and you'll dry all my tears
And whisper sweet, little things in my ear
Hugging and a-kissing, oh, what I've been missing baby
Lover man, oh, where can you be?

I've heard it said that the thrill of romance
Could be like a heavenly dream
And I'll go to bed with the prayer
That you'll make love, love to me strange as it seems

Someday we'll meet and you'll dry all my tears
Then whisper sweet little things in my ear
Hugging and a-kissing, oh, what I've been missing
Lover man, oh, where can you be?
Lover man, oh, where can you be?
