BORN TO LOVE YOU

  • January 9, 2012 4:05 am

Born to Love You

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the  Album: Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5 (1969)

Written by Ivy Jo Hunter, William “Mickey” Stevenson

YouTube link – “Born to Love You”
Girl, as you walk by
I see the sign so deep inside
I knew it had to be
When you smiled for a little while
I heard the same rhapsody
So lovely and so fair
I knew right then and there
That you were made for me
And it wasn’t hard to see
Guess I was born to love you
Guess I was born to love you

Darling I, I was born to love you
Give my love to no one but you
This is a man with the future in his hands
Don’t let go, don’t let go,
Baby, don’t let go

You better come on
And take my hand
Cause I can’t understand
This feeling in my soul
But I know that I would rather die
Than to let this feeling go
Oh, now, girl, can you see
That this was meant to be
It’s funny but it’s true
Guess I was born to love you.
Guess I was born to love you.
Guess I was born to love you.

Stand

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5 (1969)

Written by Sylvester Stewart

YouTube link – “Stand”

 

Stand! In the end you’ll still be you
One that’s done all the things you set out to do
Stand! There’s a cross for you to bear
Things to go through if you’re going anywhere
(Everybody say):
Stand! For the things you know are right
It’s the truth that the truth makes them so uptight
Stand! All the things you want are real
You have you to complete and there is no deal

Yeah yeah yeah yeah. Oom bah bah bah Oom bah bah bah
Stand! Stand!
Huh! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Stand! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya

Stand! They will try to make you crawl
And they know what they’re saying makes no sense at all
Stand! Don’t you know that you are free
Well, at least in your mind if you want to be
(Everybody say):
Huh! Hah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya.
Huh! Hah! Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya. (etc. to fade)

I Know I'm Losing You

Lead vocal: Jermaine Jackson

Written by Norman Whitfield and Eddie Holland

YouTube link – “I Know I’m Losing You”

 

Your love is fading
I can feel it fading
Girl, it’s fading away from me
Cause your touch, your touch has grown cold
As if someone else controls your very soul
I’ve fooled myself long as I can
And I can feel the presence
Of another man

Girl, when you speak my name
It’s just not the same.
Ooh, little girl, I’m losing you
It’s in the air
It’s everywhere
Ooh, baby, I’m losing you

When I look into your eyes
A reflection of a face I see
I’m hurt, down-hearted and worried, girl
Cause that face doesn’t belong to me

It’ all over your face
Someone’s taking my place
Ooh, little girl, I’m losing you
It’s hard to hide
The emptiness inside
Ooh, little girl, I’m losing you
I can tell when we kiss
From the tenderness I miss
Oh, baby, I’m losing you
I can feel it in my bones
Any day you’ll be gone
Ooh, baby, I’m losing you

Oh, baby, what happened to the love we shared
Ooh, baby, I’m losing you
I don’t wanna lose you, girl

Written by Frank Wilson

YouTube link – “Chained”
Listen darling, yeah, yeah

Seems like yesterday
You were in my arms
And in a special way
You touched my heart with all your charms
Now you’re gone
And I find myself
Baby, I’m all alone
And there’s no love left

Hey! Hey!

Don’t know why I failed
For you I’ve always cared
And I did all I know
To win your love and make it so
You’d always stay
But you turned away
Honey, what could I say
How could you
How could you do me this way

Cause I’m chained
To your love and affection.
Chained cause your love
Is my only direction

Huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh huh.
I’ve got to make it right
Somehow it all went wrong
Somewhere down the line
The love I lost
The love I gotta find
Whoah! and it won’t be long
I’ve gotta make it right baby
And carry you tenderly back home
I’m chained
To your love and affection.
Baby, chained to your love.
When I hear your name
How I tremble, how I tremble, yeah.
Honey, you know, honey, you know, yeah.

Now I admit that I
Haven’t been the perfect guy
For a girl as sweet as you
But my heart and soul cries out to you

One more chance that’s all I need
I’m gonna make it right, baby,
Now you just stay won’t you stay with me

Cause I’m chained
To your love and affection.
Baby, I’m chained cause your love
Is my only direction
I’m chained…

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la.

My cherie amour lovely as a summer day
My cherie amour distant as the Milky Way
My cherie amour pretty little one that I adore
You’re the only girl my heart leaps for
How I wish that you were mine

In a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street
I’ve been near you but you never notice me
My cherie amour won’t you tell me how could you ignore
Back behind this little smile I wore
How I wished that you were mine

My cherie amour
My cherie amour
Maybe some day you’ll see my face among the crowd
Maybe some day you’ll share your little distant cloud
Oh cherie amour pretty little one that I adore
You’re the only girl my heart leaps for
How I wish that you were mine

La la la la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la la la

Your legs were little but now they are big
instead of wearing ponytails

and I love the way you walk, way you sway your little hips

Now when I look at you
All my love come running through
You’ve changed and it’s showing yeah
My love for you is growing yes it did now
You’ve changed and it showing

Oh the way you speak to me

Ooh, my honey sugar

Ooh, hear my crying

STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE

Standing in the Shadows of Love

Michael Jackson – The Jackson 5 – from the Album: Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5 (1969)

Written by E. Holland, L. Dozier, B. Holland
Lead vocals: Michael and Jermaine Jackson

YouTube link – “Standing in the Shadows of Love”

 

Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come.

Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come.
(Can’t you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come

I wanna run but there’s no place to go
Those heartaches will find me I know
Without your love, a love I need
It’s the beginning of the end of me.

Cause you’ve taken away all my reasons for living
When you pushed aside all the love I’ve been giving
Now wait a minute!
Didn’t I always treat you right
Now baby didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I?
Didn’t I do the best I could
Now didn’t I, didn’t I?

(Don’t you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
Getting ready for the heartaches to come.
(Can’t you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
Doing my best to get ready for the heartaches to come.

All alone I’m destined to be
With misery my only company

It may come today, or it might come tomorrow
But it’s for sure I ain’t got nothing but sorrow.
I thought your conscience would kinda bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I’ve done for you?

Hold on a minute!
I gave you all the love I had
Now didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I?
When you needed me I was always there
Now wasn’t I, wasn’t I?

(Don’t you leave me) Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready for the heartaches to come.
I’m trying not to cry out loud
Cause all this cryin’ it ain’t, it ain’t gonna help me none!

Now what did I do, girl, to cause all this grief?
Now what did I say to make you want to leave?
Now wait a minute!
I gave my heart and soul to you
Now didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I?
And didn’t I always treat you good
Now didn’t I, didn’t I?

(Don’t you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
I’m getting ready or the heartaches to come
(repeat to to fade)

Lead vocals: Michael and Jermaine Jackson

YouTube link – “Nobody” 

 

Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody
No, no, no, nobody can love me like you do
Can love me like you do, to love me like you do

Money in the bank, money in the bank
Don’t mean a thing
Money can’t buy, money can’t buy
The love you bring
Your love, baby
Can make a blind man see, yes, it can
Can it make the devil
Get right down on his knees

Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody
No, no, no, nobody can love me like you do
Can love me like you do, cab love me like you do

Movie star queen, a movie star queen
Can move me not
Movie star queen, take off the paint, baby,
Whatcha got?
Take me, girl,
You’re my desire, honey,
I get steaming hot
Every time you light my fire

Nobody, no, nobody, said nobody
No, no, no, nobody can love me like you do
Can love me like you do, can love me like you do

The good book says, the good book says
To share with your brother

The good book says, when it comes to you,
You better find him another
You know the wise old owl
Got nothing to say.
But if you loved him like you love me
He’d hoot hoot twenty-four hours a day
Nobody, no, nobody… (repeat to fade)
