(Ooh, ooh, sweet love, yeah)

I didn't mean it when I said I didn't love you so
I should have held on tight I never shoulda let you go
I didn't know nothing I was stupid, I was foolish
I was lying to myself

I could not fathom that I would ever be without your love
Never imagined I'd be sitting here beside myself
'Cause I didn't know you, 'cause I didn't know me
But I thought I knew everything
I'd never fail

The feeling that I'm feeling now that I don't hear your voice
Or have your touch and kiss your lips 'cause I don't have a choice
Oh, what I wouldn't give to have you lying by my side
Right here, 'cause baby
(We belong together)

When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby, please
'Cause we belong together

Who else am I gon' lean on when times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone 'till the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place there ain't nobody there
Oh, baby baby, we belong together

I can't sleep at night when you are on my mind
Bobby Womack's on the radio saying to me:
"If you think you're lonely now"
Wait a minute this is too deep (too deep)
I gotta change the station so I turn the dial
Trying to catch a break and then I hear baby face
I only think of you and it's breaking my heart
I'm trying to keep it together but I'm falling apart

I'm feeling all out of my element
I'm throwing things, crying
Trying to figure out where the hell I went wrong
The pain reflected in this song it ain't even half of what
I'm feeling inside
I need you, need you back in my life, baby
(We belong together)

When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby, please
'Cause we belong together

Who else am I gon' lean on when times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me on the phone 'til the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place there ain't nobody there
Oh, baby baby, we belong together, baby!

When you left I lost a part of me
It's still so hard to believe
Come back baby, please
'Cause we belong together

Who I'm gonna lean on when times get rough
Who's gonna talk to me 'til the sun comes up
Who's gonna take your place there ain't nobody there
Oh, baby baby, we belong together

    Every time i hear this song i start to cry because it makes me think of my ex. it just reminds me how much i miss him. but theres nothing i can do to change that. But getting over him slowly but surely. big step for me. Hope some of you know what im talking about. If you do, then your not the only one out there who feels the way i do. For sure your not alone.

    i love this song it is about a relationship where u think that u can live without a special someone but than when u r not together u think'' i cant live without him'her'' and want them back so badly and u r willing to do anything just to say one last time that he is mine and just to have him hold u in his arms and say i love you and u dont want him to let go but u took him for granted and now its too late and than he's gone.

    This song truly is 1 of my favorite songs. The meaning behind the song is basically saying how 2 people are meant for each other, they are together for awhile but they break up. The moment you get into another relationship you realize how much you miss the other person. You start realize you were always meant for each from the start!
