Luther Vandross – I'm Gonna Start Today lyrics

I'm gonna start today
Luther Vandross and Marcus Miller
(album: power of love - 1991)

I got up this morning
And without a word of warning
I knew for sure I had to change my way
Dusted my mind to clear it
My body and my spirit
But it's okay, I'm gonna start today, Hey
Emotions disappearing
I call out but you're not here and
I question why I have this debt to pay
But I'll do my best believing
That I'll get that lovin' feeling
I mean to say, I'm gonna start today

Channel I:
Start today to turn this love around
I know for sure I'll never let you down, baby 'cause
No longer do I think it's all in your mind
I get the point and I've got nothing but time
To be the way I know I really should be
And find a way for love to rescue me, Ooh

Chorus I:
(I'm gonna start today)
Working on loving you better
(I'm gonna start today)
Working on leaving you never
(I'm gonna start today)
So baby dry your tears away, it's okay
I'm gonna start today, Hey Yeah

Still dream of you returning
My pilot light is burning
I mention you every time that I pray
I sleep with one eye open
'Cause in my heart I'm hoping
You'll believe what I say
I'm gonna start today, baby
And from this moment on
Even though you'll be gone
I'm gonna do everything that I say
I wanna be your best man
I'll let time do the rest
And I'll sweep you away
I'm gonna start today

Channel ii:
I am here, but since your love is gone
The days are lonely and the nights are long, baby 'cause
I want that love I knew, no less or more
I want you back the way you loved me before
'Cause yesterday is how tomorrow should be
I'll start today if you will rescue me, Ooo

Bridge:
The night's so long, so long without you baby
And I can't stand it no more (Anymore)
Come here 'cause I want to prove my love for you baby
Come back this is where you belong

Chorus ii:
(I'm gonna start today)
Working on it, love has the power
(I'm gonna start today)
I'm working on it every, every every hour
(I'm gonna start today)
So baby dry those tears away, it's okay
I'm gonna start today

Channel iii:
Start today to turn this love around
I know for sure I'll never let you down, baby 'cause
No longer do I think it's all in your mind
I get the point and I've got nothing but time
To be the way I know I really should be
And find a way for love to rescue me

Now I know how to make love real
You don't know how 'til you know how to feel
I've been picking up the pieces of my broken past
But it's okay, your baby's gonna start today
