Lyrics
Well, well, well
It seems like it was only yesterday
When my mama told me, don't fall in love with the first girl that comes your way
She was pretty and nice, but I took her advice and passed her by
Years have passed and it don't look like love's gonna give me a second try

Boy, the look on your face tells me you understand
Could it be your love life, like mine, needs a helping hand?

Yeah, you need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you

I know it ain't fit and proper for a girl to talk this way
But I can't cope with this loneliness, not one more doggone day
Every day has been an uphill climb to keeping my hopes afloat
Judging by your silence, boy, you must be in the same boat

And again now

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you, well, well, well, well
You need love like I do, don't you?
It seems like I'm looking in the mirror when I'm looking at you

I can't begin to tell how many night times have been all lonely
Come on, tell me, girl, does it ever happen to you?
I'm gonna tell you something and, believe me, it ain't no joke
My love life is just like a sinking boat

I can understand a person being without money
But surely there isn't a reason for a person to be without love
Listen to me now; I'm a girl and you're a guy

Yes, it's true
Come on, let's give love a try
Damn

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you

You find that true love is a dream that everyone wants to come true
Can't you see it's up to us to make this dream come true?

Yeah, you need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you, well, well, well
You need love like I do, don't you?
Well, it seems like I'm looking in the mirror when I'm looking at you

Ain't it true, ain't it true, ain't it true, ain't it true, ain't it true?
Yes, it's true; yes it's true, true, true

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you
You need love like I do, don't you?
Well, it seems like I'm looking in the mirror when I'm looking at you

You need love like I do, don't you?
I can tell by the way you look when I'm looking at you
You need love like I do, don't you?
Well, it seems like I'm looking in the mirror when I'm looking at you

Ain't it true, girl?
I'm in love, I'm in love 'cause I need you
And I need you too
