Robert Cray – I Forgot To Be Your Lover lyrics

Have I told you lately that I love you?
Well, if I didn't darling, I'm sorry
Did I reach out and hold you in my loving arms
Oh, when you needed me?

Now I realize that you need love too
And I'll spend my life making love to you

Oh, I forgot to be your lover
And I'm sorry, I'm so sorry

Have I taken the time to share with you
All the burdens that lovers bear?
And have I done the little simple things to show you
Just how much I care?

Oh, I've been working for you doing all I can
But work all the time didn't make me a man

Oh, I forgot to be your lover
And I'm sorry, I'll make it up to you somehow, baby

I forgot to be your lover, I'm so sorry
I forgot to be your lover
Gonna make it up to you somehow, baby
