Alicia Keys – When You Really Love Somebody lyrics

I'm a woman
Lord knows it's hard
I need a real man to give me what I need
Sweet attention, love and tenderness
When it's real it's unconditional
I'm telling y'all
Cause a man just ain't a man if he ain't man enough...

To love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take you higher when the world gotcha feeling low
He's giving you his last, cause he's thinking of your first
Giving comfort when he's thinking that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone
I'm telling y'all, I'm telling y'all

Cause you're a real man
And Lord knows it's hard
Sometimes you just need a woman's touch
Sweet affection, love and support
When it's reall it's unconditional
I'm telling y'all, oh
Cause a woman ain't a woman if she ain't woman enough

To love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take you higher when the world's gotcha feeling low
She's giving you her best, even when you are at your worst
Giving comfort when she's thinking that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone
I'm telling y'all, I'm telling y'all
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Sometimes you're gonna argue, sometimes you're gonna fight
Sometime it's gonna feel like it'll never be right
But something so strong keeps you holdin on
It don't make sense but it makes a good song
Cause a man just ain't a man if he's man enough...

To love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take you higher when the world's gotcha feeling low
He's giving you his last, cause he's thinking of you first
Giving comfort when he's thinking that you're hurt
Oh, that's what's done when you really love someone
I'm telling y'all, I'm telling y'all
I'm telling y'all that a woman ain't a woman if she ain't woman enough

(To love ya)
Love you when you're right
Love you when you're wrong
(To hold ya)
Love you when you're weak
Love you when you're strong
Take ya higher and higher
When the world's gotcha feeling low
She's giving you her best, even when you're at your worst
Giving comfort when she's thinking that you're hurt
That's what's done when you really love someone

I'm telling y'all, I'm telling y'all
Mm, mm, yeah
Mm, mm, yeah
Mm, mm, yeah
Mm, mm, yeah
