Change
Lisa Stansfield Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

[Chorus]
If I could change the way I live my life today
I wouldn't change a single thing
'Cause if I changed my world into another place
I wouldn't see your smiling face

Honey don't you worry, there's nothin' to worry for
'Cause if I didn't love you I wouldn't be here now
And if I didn't want you I would have turned around by now

You've got to believe me babe, believe that I love you so
'Cause if I didn't love you I would have turned around
And if I didn't want you, then I would want you out

This love, this love has filled me up
Ooh my love I'll never give you up
'Cause I'll always want your love

[Chorus]

Believing is the answer, the answer to all your fears
When I first said I loved you, I went in for the kill
Now when I say I love you, I mean I always will

This love, this love has filled me up
Ooh my love I'll never give you up
'Cause I'll always want your love

[Chorus]

This love, this love has filled me up
Ooh my love I'll never give you up
'Cause I'll always want your love





[Chorus]

Most underrated female soul singer of her generation! Lisa should have been a much bigger star than she was. Still listen to her music today.

@valanasha1135

Agree 100%

@pabloblanco2656

Absolutely agree she is the most underrated female vocalist but not just her generation. Lisa is one of the best female vocalist of all time. She's may not be in the same genre as Karen Carpenter but she is definitely in the same ranking. Stansfield and Carpenter are the two best female vocalist hands down.

@paulvanappeven3340
