FOREVER

Original Little Steven And The Disciples Of Soul version


If I give you my heart, would you love me forever

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh

Oh, I learned when I was a young boy
You turn your cheek you get slapped, yeah
I take the punches, I can't slip
And then I give it right back

Oh, even if I win, girl
You know it really won't mean too much
What I want, baby, most of all
Is the only thing that I can't touch

Oh, if I give you my heart, would you love me forever
Would you pick up the pieces if I stumble and fall
If my world falls apart, could you keep it together
If I can't have you I don't want no one at all

Oh yeah, yeah yeah

Oh, just because I'm so quiet
Just because I don't cry
Oh, the hardest lesson to learn, girl
Is how to take it inside

But there's leather and jewels to soothe me
But it isn't really what I need
Oh, there's an aching hurt inside of me
And it's the kind of thing you don't see

Oh, if I give you my heart, would you love me forever
Would you pick up the pieces if I stumble and fall
If my world falls apart, could you keep it together
If I can't have you I don't want no one at all

Yeah!
Oh, baby
Yeah!
Oh, oh-oh, yeah!

Now the years are unwinding
But I still feel the hurt
Oh, I've been fighting my whole life
For the privilege to work

Now I've stopped and looked around me
There's nobody left to blame
If I don't have you to hold me, girl
All of my work's in vain

Oh, if I give you my heart, would you love me forever
Would you pick up the pieces if I stumble and fall
If my world falls apart, could you keep it together
If I can't have you I don't want no one at all

If I give you my heart, girl, would you love me forever?
Oh yeah, stumble and fall
Oh, baby, keep it togetherI don't want no one at all

Oh, baby, yeah
Yeah, baby
Oh, oh yeah!
My baby
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, baby
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
[Fades out]
