Lyrics / Paroles

 

Now you say
Everytime you need some affection
The one you love goes in another direction
You just sit back in a day reminiscing
íCause you know some other lips heís been kissing

Now when you need the love you never saw
You come around here
And when you need some loving arms to hold you
Come around here
Now I may not be the one you want

(Honey, Honey)
But I know Iím the one you need
(Honey, Honey)
Say now, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, Honey)
But I know Iím the one you need
(Honey, Honey)

Your life stands still the minute he goes
You count the hours just hoping that he shows
Girl, canít you see while youíre longing for his touch

(Honey, Honey)
That Iím the one who loves you so much
(Honey, Honey)
And while youíre longing for his embrace
(Honey, Honey)
Youíre all alone with the tears on your face
(Honey, Honey)

Now when you feel the need to cry to someone
Cry to me
And when you feel the need to lean on someone
Lean on me

Now, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, Honey)
But Iím sure that Iím the one you need
(Honey, Honey)
Oh baby, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, Honey)
But Iím sure Iím the one you need
(Honey, Honey)

Now, the days, the days, the days
You sit alone by yourself
Heís out fooling around with somebody else
Leaving you alone here with nothing to do
Heís just waiting till he has time for you

Now when the loneliness get hard to bear, girl
Come around here
And when you need a little tender love and care, girl
Come around here

Now, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, Honey)
But Iím sure Iím the one you need
(Honey, Honey)
Oh baby, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, Honey)
Babe, babe, babe, babe, baby
Oh now, oh now, I may not be the one you want
But, Iím sure Iím the one you need
