We Need Love
Johnny Osbourne Lyrics


Things were all good yesterday
And then the devil took your memory
And if you fell to your death today
I hope that heaven is your resting place
I heard the doctors put your chest in pain
But then that could have been the medicine
There you are lying in the bed again
Either way I'll cry with the rest of them

My father told me, son
It's not his fault he doesn't know your face
You're not the only one
Although my Grandma used to say
That he used to sing

Darlin' hold me in your arms
The way you did last night
And we'll lie inside
A little while here oh

I could look into your eyes
Until the sun comes up
And we're wrapped In light and life and love
Put your open lips on mine
And slowly let them shut
For they're designed to be together oh
With your body next to mine
Our hearts will beat as one
And we set alight
We're afire love

Things were all good yesterday
Then the devil took your breath away
Now we're left here in the pain
Black suit black tie standing in the rain
And now my family is one again
Stapled together with the strangers and a friend
Came to my mind I should paint it with a pen
6 years old I remember when

My father told me, son
It's not his fault he doesn't know your face
You're not the only one
Although my Grandma used to say
That he used to sing

Darlin' hold me in your arms
The way you did last night
And we'll lie inside
A little while here oh

I could look into your eyes
Until the sun comes up
And we're wrapped In light and life and love
Put your open lips on mine
And slowly let them shut
For they're designed to be together oh
With your body next to mine
Our hearts will beat as one
And we're set alight
We're afire love

To the love, the love, the love, the love

My father and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing Hallelujah
And my mother and all of my family
Rise from their seats to say hallelujah
And my brother and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing hallelujah
My father and all of my family
Rise from the seats to sing
Hallelujah

To the love, the love, the love, the love
To the love, the love, the love, the love
To the love, the love, the love, the love

Amazing song. This dude is a legend. The early American RnB, and soul music of the early 70's are defninitely evident as an influence on this song, but his ability to pull it off as a reggae song is genious. Bless

LYRICS :

When I was a young boy
We used to go to church every Sunday
There was handclapping, foot-stomping music
We used to dance in the name of the Lord
And now I grow older
Somewhere on the road of life
I wanna sing a song to Him
Gotta be ?

If the whole world could be wrapped up in love
What a beautiful feeling
Such heavenly bliss, oh Lord
And the clouds that pierce the sunset, oh Lord

Oh, what a beautiful feeling
If the whole wide world could join in and sing
You need love, don't you?
People need love, don't we?
We all need love, don't you?
Mama need love, me too
Papa need love, me too

Love, love is a crazy feeling
Of happiness again?

'Cause living in a world without love
Or handclapping, foot-stomping music
For us to get together every now and then
Sing a song of love for the children to learn
Oh oh, la, la la

(..)

Oh what a beautiful feeling
If the whole world could join in and sing
Never mind who wants to do their own thing
If we could be like that every time
We could never solve our problems together
But remember one thing
As a nation and a people that is unified
Remember

You need love, don't you?
We all need love, don't we?
The children need love, don't we?
The whole world need love, don't we?
