Don Covay – Now That I Need You lyrics

Baby, oh, baby
Where are you?
Oh now, that I need, I need, you
Oh now, that I want you
So badly, I could cry
(I could cry, I could cry, I could cry)

Baby (where are you?)
Where are you?
Oh, now that I love you
Oh, now that I need you
So badly I could die
(I could die, I could cry, where are you?)

I had you at my beggin' call
I called you any, any, time at all
But I took, I took, too much for granted
Now I lie, awake and cry

Where are you?
Oh, now that I love you
Now that I need, I need you
(Rat-tat-tat-too) so badly

I could, Uh!
Uh! Cr-iii-iii
(Cry, I could cry, where are you, where are you?)


Oh, people let me cry
(I could cry, I could cry)
(Where are you?)
Yes, I've gotta cry-i-i-i.
