I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he's here
It's not the same, it's not the same


Chorus:
He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I've ever seen
He's all I've got,
He's all I've got in this world
But he's all the man that I need


And in the morning when I kiss his eyes
He takes me down and rocks me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He holds me close and won't let go
He won't let go


Chorus

    If you have really ever been madly in love with a man this song tells the story. This song really makes you feel like a woman. My favorite whitney song ever. She was amazing and my heart is broken.

    This is phenomenal perfect song for my husband, ron s. His all the man that i need in my life. I thank you for every thing that you've done to me, like what the lyrics says "he fills me up" "he gives me love"; and definitely he spoiled me a lot. We've been 23 yrs. Married and my love for you will never be change and keeps stronger. Like what you said b4 no matter we gets older 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80? Mmm... My love 4u will never change. I love you ron.
