“I Wanna Be Your Lover” by Corinne Bailey Rae

“I get discouraged cause I never see you anymore. I need your love babe. That’s all I’m living for.”

I ain’t got no money
I ain’t like those other guys you hang around
It’s kind of funny but they always seem to let you down
I get discouraged cause I never see you anymore
I need your love babe that’s all I’m living for

Don’t want to pressure you baby
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I want to be the only one who makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I want to turn you on, turn you out
All night long, make you shout
Lover, I want to be the only one you come for

I wanna be your brother
I wanna be your mother and your sister too
That can do the things that I’ll do to you
And I get discouraged cause you treat me just like a child
They say I’m so shy
But with you I just go wild

Don’t want to pressure you baby
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I want to be the only one who makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I want to turn you on, turn you out
All night long, make you shout
I want to be the only one you come for
