I've Got A Need For You
David Ruffin Lyrics


See I′ve always been known as a strong man
Though a poor man, I still kept my pride
I've never shared love with nobody
Too afraid I′d be cast aside
See, but in you I've found something wonderful
I feel so secure in your embrace (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Since you've entered my world of seclusion
The fears of love′s been erased

Oh-oh, right now I′ve got a need for you
Deep down here and upside, darling
Oh, whoa! oh, I've got a need for you
That sets my soul on fire, fire, fire, fire

Before you came into my life (do-do-do)
I was carеful not to get involved (do-do-do)
′Cause I witnеssed the heartache of lovers (do-do-do)
And the problem that they couldn't solve
Oh, but slowly you crept up on me
And you showed me love′s better side
There's no doubt that I′d be lost without you
Though I couldn't get a feel for it, try, try, try

'Cause, whoa! I′ve got a need for you
Deep down here inside (deep down here inside)
Oh, let us say, whoa! I′ve got a need for you
That sets my soul on fire, fire, fire, oh

I'm well from every kiss you give me (do-do-do)
Oh, they warm me on each chilly night (do-do-do)
Respect your sweetness brought to me (do-do-do)
Has changed my outlook on life
Baby your smile′s like the morning sun
It shines for me each day, yeah (do-do-do)
Yeah, your love is such a priceless treasure
Oh please, don't let it slip away
I love to say

Yeah, I′ve got a need for you
Deep, deep down here inside
And I'll say, yeah, I′ve got a need for you
That sets my soul on fire, fire, fire

Oh, I've got a need for you (oh, I've got a, I know I′ve got a need for you)
Deep down here inside (it′s deep down, deep down here inside)
Say, whoa! I've got a need for you (I know I got a need, I got a need for you)
That sets my soul on fire, fire, fire

Oh, whoa! I′ve got a need for you (oh, I know I got a need for you)
Deep down here inside
Oh, I say, yeah, I've got a need for you
That sets my soul on fire...
