Otis redding/j butler
Roy's version bears little similarity to the original

Otis version (original)

There were time and you want to be free
My love is growing stronger,
As you become a haven to me
Oh i've been loving you a little too long
I dont wanna stop now, oh with you my life,
Has been so wonderful i can't stop now
There were times and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger
As our affair [affair] grows old
I've been loving you a little too long, long,
I don't want to stop now oh, oh, oh
I've been loving you a little bit too long
I don't wanna stop now no, no, no

Don't make me stop now, no baby
I'm down on my knees please,
Don't make me stop now
I love you, i love you,
I love you with all of my heart
And i can't stop now don't make me stop now
Please, please don't make me stop now
[good god of mine]i love you
I love you, i love you, i love you
I love you, i love you
I love you in so many different ways...
I love you in so many different ways....



Roy version

I've been loving you a little too long
To stop right now
You're tired, and you wanna be free
My love is growing stronger
As you become a habit to me
Ooh, and loving you a little too long
I don't wanna stop right now
Oh with you my life has been so wonderful
I just can't stop now

You're tired and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger
As our affair grows old
And i've been loving you a little too long
I don't wanna stop now

Ooh, too long, long
Don't wanna stop my loving you right now
No, oh i've been loving you a little too long
To stop right now
Ooh, loving you a little too long
To stop right now

No, no, i can't stop now. no
Loving you a little too long
To stop right now, i can't stop...
