  • Always be around

    Don't you know I can see what you do to me
    Running around with your cheap talk, cheap talk
    What I need is a man who can do me right, do me right

    If you got what I need, I can guarantee
    To return all the love that you've giving to me
    But, I've got to be sure that you always will be around (Always be around)

    Do you know what it takes to love me
    Do you know what it takes to do me right
    Do you know what it takes to love me, baby, baby

    Heaven knows in my time, I've been lonely
    Feeling my love echo in my mind, in my mind, yeah
    Never satisfied girl is what they call me
    But I just can't keep going on living lies

    Guaranteed, underneath
    You won't let me down
    There's so much I can give
    But it's buried so deep
    I just got to be sure that you always will be around (Always be around)

    Do you know what it takes to love me (Do you know)
    Do you know what it takes to do me right
    Do you know what it takes to love me, baby, baby
    Do you know what it takes (Do you know)
    Do you know what it takes
    (Don't waste my time, with your lies)
    Yeah baby, I got enough
    (You got to prove that you will always be around)

    I'll give you everything
    Boy will you do the same for me
    Will you do anything
    I gotta know the way it'll be

    Do you know what it takes to love me (Do you know)
    Do you know what it takes to do me right
    Do you know, do you know, do you know what it takes
    Do you know what it takes, do you know what it takes to do me right
    (Don't waste my time baby)
