From “The Darkest Part Of The Night” (1996)

by Bob Malone

Baby I’m aware that you’ve heard all of this and more
I know I ain’t the first man in love to darken your door
And I don’t pretend to know one romantic line that ain’t been said before
And maybe you’re thinking these are just words to be suspicious of
In a world with too many love songs and not enough love
But honey look into my eyes and I think you’ll know who you can really trust

‘Cause when I tell you I love you I mean exactly what I say
And just because I want you don’t mean I want you to change
And I could hold you forever but I won’t ever hold you down
And baby wherever you are, that’s where my heart will be found

Now I ain’t a rich man and I don’t aspire to be
And I’ll never have no power as great
As the power you got over me
And I’ll never be so clever
That I could make mere words do justice
To the way you make me feel
But if you want passion, well I got more than enough
And if you want a dream come true
I’ll give you all you’re dreaming of
And when you just can’t find the faith
I’ll be strong enough for the both of us


Please don’t confuse me with the others you’ve known
Who spoke of devotion when they really wanted control
‘Cause I don’t need you to be someone you don’t want to be
It’s just that I can’t imagine the rest of my life
Without you next to me…
