Lyrics / Paroles

 

Michael
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

Jackson 5
Born to love you, born to love you

Michael
Guess I was born to love you.

Jackson 5
Born to love you, born to love you
Darling I, I was born to love you
Give my love to no one but you.

Jermaine
This is a man with the future in his hands
Don't let go,

Jackson 5
Don't let go,

Jermaine
Baby, don't let go.

Jackson 5
Don't let go,

Michael
You better come on
And take my hand
Cuz 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

Jackson 5
Born to love you, born to love you

Michael
Guess I was born to love you.

Jackson 5
Born to love you, born to love you
