Written by chuck jackson and marvin yancy


Needing you, wanting you, I just don't know what I'm gonna do

To tell the truth it just ain't no use, my mind ain't strong enough

To forget about you, oh baby, hey, here I am trying to be proud

Trying to fool myself with this unreal smile, telling everyone

That I no longer cling to you, but I know myself that can't be true, oh

How can I forget a love I've known for so long

The heart may not remember, but the mind goes on and on

And the more I think about it the worse off I get

Something keeps telling me you ain't seen nothing yet

I'm needing you, wanting you, I just don't know what I'm gonna do

Now that you're gone, how can I go on, the same love that made me smile

Right now it makes me blue, oh, how can I get you back, I need you here so bad

The neighbors say since you've been away, I seem to be so sad

You know they're right, I can't stand to be out of your site

You need to be here close to me to lift these lonely nights

I'm needing you, wanting you, oh I just don't know what I'm gonna do, ooh, no

To tell the truth, it just ain't no use, my mind ain't strong enought to forget about you

Baby, baby, I'm sure needing you, yes, I'm wanting you

You know I just can't stand it, it just ain't no use, ain't no use
