Drifting on a memory

Ain't no place I'd rather be than with you

Loving you

Day will make a way for night

All we'll need is candlelight

And a song, soft and long

Glad to be

Here alone with a love unlike no other

Sad to see, a new horizon slowly coming into view



Chorus:

I wanna be living for the love of you

All that I'm giving is for the love of you
(you you you)


Lovely as a ray of sun (oo oo oo)

That touches me when the morning comes (oo oo oo)

Feels good to me (oo oo oo)

My love and me, yeah (oo oo oo)

Smoother then a gentle breeze (oo oo oo)

Flowing through my mind with ease (oo oo oo)

Soft as can be

Well, when you're loving me, ooh baby (oo oo oo)

Love to be

Riding the waves of your love enchanted with your touch

It seems to me

We can sail together in and out of mystery



Chorus:

I want to be living for the love of you (hey baby, baby)

All that I'm giving (giving)is for the love of you
(you you you you)(oo oo oo)




Paradise, I have within, (oo oo oo)

Can't feel insecure again

You're the key

And this I see (ooo) (yeah hooo)

Now and then I lose my way

Using words to try and say what I feel

Oh yeah, your love is real (hooo)

I might as well, sign my name on a card that could say it better

See, time will tell

Cause it seems that I've done just about all that I can do (do do)



Chorus:

I want to be living for the love of you (hey baby, baby)

All that I'm giving is for the love of you

    Song is about relatioinship between whitney and the god. She's not origin. Song actually was writen years ago for another person. And she decide and choose to sing on her own. Perfect match.
