Luther Vandross – I Who Have Nothing lyrics

I who have nothing
Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller, Mogol and Carlo Donida
(album: power of love - 1991)

Duet with Martha Wash

(Luther)
I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Adore you, and want you so
I'm just a no one
With nothing to give you
But Ooh, I love you

(Martha)
She, she buys you diamonds
Say they're bright, they are bright sparkling diamonds
But believe me, boy, Ooo boy, hear what I say
She could give you the world
But she'll never love you the way
That I love you, baby

Bridge:
(Both) You can go any place you want
(Luther) To fancy clubs and restaurants
(Both) But I can only watch you with her
(Martha) My nose pressed up against the window pane
(Luther) The window pane
(Both) Ooo Yeah... Yeah

Saxophone Solo

(Both) I
(Martha) Who have nothing
(Luther) Nothing
(Both) I
(Luther) Who have no one
(Luther) Must watch you
(Martha) I will watch you, baby
(Luther) Go passing by
(Martha) But you don't see me
(Luther) Wrapped in the arms of
(Both) Wrapped in the arms of somebody else
(Luther) When darling it's I
(Martha) Who
(Luther) Really loves you, baby
(Martha) Really loves you, baby
(Luther) I'm the one
(Martha) I'm the one, I'm the one

(Both)
I want to be the one that you just can't live without
I want to be the one that you never feel no doubt
I want to be the one that you let give you the lovin'
But, I have nothing
(Martha) Nothing

(Both)
I want to be the one that you always want to be near
I want to say the words that your body and soul need to hear
I want to be the one that you let give you all the lovin'
But I have nothing
