Here I Am
Al Green Lyrics


I can't believe that it's real,
The way that you make me feel.
A burning deep down inside,
A love that I cannot hide.
Our love is you and me baby,
That make the world go round.
And if you've been doin' lovin' with me,
Layin' all my troubles down,

Here I am, baby,
Come and take me.
Here I am, baby,
Come and take me,
Take me by the hand, oh
Show me,
Here I am, baby.

It always ends up this way,
Me begging you every day.
A love that I cannot have,
You broke my heart into half.
Our love is you and me baby, yeah, yeah
That make's the world go round.
And if you've been doin' lovin' with me,
Layin' all my troubles down

Here I am, baby,
Come and take me,
Here I am, baby,
Come and take me,
Take me by the hand, yeah
Squeeze it
Here I am, baby.

When I'm down I can always call you,
For a helpin' hand.
I know you'll do the best you can.
But it don't take much from me,
Just for my cup of Joe.

Oh there's love inside me,
I believe there's going to be an explosion,
It's tough for me, oh baby,
I can do worry,
Tell me all your troubles, yeah
You won't ever have to worry no,

One more thing, you just can't trust everybody,
Everybody you see, oh no, no
You'll find yourselves lost and alone on a dark end of the street,

Here I am, baby,
Come and take me.
Here I am, baby,
Come and take me,
Take me by the hand.
Show me, take me, won't ya
Show me
Here I am, baby
Take me
Teach me, baby
Won't you take me by the hand
Teach me
Here I am baby

You won't ever have to worry no,
One more thing, you just can't trust everybody,
Everybody you see, oh no, no
You'll find yourself lost and alone on a dark end street

Lyrics

I can't believe that it's real
The way that you make me feel
A burning deep down inside
A love that I cannot hide

Our love is you and me, baby
That make the world go round
And if keeping you 
And loving you means
Laying all my troubles down

Here I am, baby, 
Come and take me
Here I am, baby, 
Won't you come and take me
Take me by the hand, yeah
Show me
Here I am, baby

It always ends up this way
Me begging you every day
A love that I cannot have
You broke my heart into half

Our love is you and me, baby
That make the world go round
Keeping you and loving you means
Laying all my troubles down

Here I am, baby, 
Come and take me
Here I am, baby, 
Won't you come and take me
Take me by the hand, yeah
Squeeze it
Here I am, baby

When I'm down 
I can always call you
For a helping hand
I know you'll do the best you can
But it don't take much for me
Before my cup runs over
All this love's inside of me
I believe there's going 
To be an explosion, yeah
You can talk to me, 
Oh baby
I'm in no hurry
Tell me all your troubles
And you won't ever have to worry, no
And one more thing
You just can't trust everybody
Everybody you see, 
No no
You'll find yourself lost and alone
On a darkened street

Here I am, baby, 
Come and take me
Here I am, baby, 
Would you come and take me
Take me by the hand
Show me, hey hey
Take me, hey hey
Show me, won't you?
Here I am, baby, hey hey
Take me, won't you?
Teach me
Baby, 
Won't you take me by the hand?
Teach me
Here I am, baby
