Now you say
Everytime you need some affection,
The one you love goes in another direction
You just sit back in a daze reminiscin’,
‘Cause you know some other lips he’s been kissin’.
(Now when you need the love he never showed ya,)
(Come ’round here.)/(Come ’round here.)
(And when you need some lovin’ arms to hold ya,)
(Come ’round here.)/(Come ’round here.)

[Chorus:]
Now I may not be the one you want, girl,
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
But I know I’m the one you need./
(I’m the one you need.) (Honey, honey.)/Say now,
I may not be the one you want,/
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
But I know I’m the one you need./
(I’m the one you need.) (Honey, honey.)

[Bridge, spoken:]
Your life stands still the minute he goes.
You count the hours just hopin’ he shows.

[Verse 2]
Girl, can’t ya see while you’re longin’ for his touch,
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
That I’m the one who loves you so much.
(I’m the one you need.) (Honey, honey.)
And while you’re longin’ for his embrace,
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
You’re all alone now, with the tears on your face.
(I’m the one you need.) (Honey, honey.)

(Now when you feel the need to cry to someone,)
(Cry to me.)/(Come ’round here.)
(And when you feel the need to lean on someone,)
(Lean on me.)/(Come ’round here.)

Now I may not be the one you want,
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)/But I’m sure ’nuff,
(I’m the one you need.)/The one you need.
(Honey, honey.)/Oh, baby,
I may not be the one you want,
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
Whooh, I’m sure ’nuff the one you need.
(I’m the one you need.) (Honey, honey.)

[Spoken:]
Now, the days, the days, the days
You sit alone by yourself, honey

[Sung:]
He’s out foolin’ ’round with somebody else,
Leavin’ you alone here with nothin’ to do.
You’re just waitin’ till he has time for you.
(Now when the loneliness gets hard to bear, girl,)
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
(And when you need a little tender love and care, girl,)
(I’m the one you need.) (Honey, honey.)

Now, I may not be the one you want,
(Come ’round here.) (Honey, honey.)
Ooo, but I’m sure ’nuff the one you need.
(I’m the one you need.)
