  • I will never find another lover sweeter than you
    Sweeter than you
    And I will never find another lover more precious than you
    More precious than you
    Girl you are close to me you're like my mother
    Close to me you're like my father
    Close to me you're like my sister
    Close to me you're like my brother
    You are the only one you are my everything and for you this song I sing

    And all my life I've prayed for someone like you
    And I thank God that I, that I finally found you
    All my life I've prayed for someone like you
    And I hope that you feel the same way too
    Yes, I pray that you do love me too

    I said you're all that I'm thinking of, baby

    Said, I promise to never fall in love with a stranger
    You're all I'm thinking of, I praise the Lord above
    For sending me your love, I cherish every hug
    I really love you

    And all my life, baby, baby, I've prayed for someone like you
    And I thank God that I, that I finally found you, baby
    All my life I've prayed for someone like you
    And I hope that you feel the same way too
    Yes, I pray that you do, love me

    You're all that I ever known, when you smile, on my face, all I see is a glow
    You turned my life around, you picked me up when I was down
    You're all that I ever known, when you smile on your face all I see is a glow
    You picked me up when I was down
    You're all that I ever known, when you smile on your face all I see is a glow
    You picked me up when I was down and I hope that you feel the same way too
    Yes I pray that you do love me too Writer/s: Joel M Hailey, Rory A Bennett
