There's a light, a certain kind of light
That never shines on me
I want my life to be
Here with with you to live with you

There's a way, I know everybody says
Just to do every thing that I can
But what good will it do
If I can't have you, if I can't have you

Ooh baby, you don't know what it's like
You just don't know what it's like
To love somebody, to love somebody
The way I love you

I'm just a man, can't you see that's what I am?
And I breath every breathe that I take for you
But what good would breathing to do
If I can't have you, if I can't have you

Baby, you don't know what it's like
You just don't know what it's like
Ooh, you don't know what it's like
You just don't know what it's like
To love somebody, to love somebody
The way I love you
