  • I will love you anyway
    Even if you cannot stay
    I think you are the one for me
    Here is where you ought to be
    I just want to satisfy you
    Though you're not mine
    I can't deny you
    Don't you hear me talking baby?
    Love me now or I'll go crazy

    Oh sweet thing
    Don't you know you're my everything?
    Oh sweet thing
    Don't you know you're my everything?
    Yes, you are

    I wish you were my lover
    But you act so undercover
    To love you child my whole life long
    Be it right, or be it wrong
    I'm only what you make me, baby
    Don't walk away, don't be so shady
    Don't want your mind, don't want your money
    These words I say, they may sound funny, but

    Oh sweet thing
    Don't you know you're my everything?
    Oh sweet thing
    Don't you know you're my everything?
    Yes, you are, yes you are

    You are my heat
    You are my fire
    You make me weak with strong desire
    To love you child my whole life long
    Be it right, or be it wrong

    I just want to satisfy you
    Though you're not mine
    I can't deny you
    Don't you hear me talking baby
    Love me now or I'll go crazy

    You're the heat, you are the fire
    You're not mine, I can't deny ya
    Don't you hear me talking, baby?
    Love me now, or I'll go crazy

    You're the heat, you are the fire
    You're not mine, I can't deny ya
    Don't you hear me talking, baby?
    Love me now, or I'll go crazy

    You're the heat, you are the fire
    You're not mine, I can't deny ya
    Don't you hear me talking, baby?
    Love me now, or I'll go crazy

    You're the heat, you are the fire
    You're not mine, I can't deny ya
    Don't you hear me talking, baby?
    Love me now
