Verse 1

I hope you realize baby
Just what you mean to me
Hey you where I run for cover
Your loving shelter for me
And when I find myself needing some lifting up
One night with you and that always is enough
How you make being in love
A true rare affair
So take me I'm your prisoner
Chorus

Will you sentence me to be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Will you snetence me
I want to be your lover for life
Your lover for life

I just want to hear you say
You'll be my lover, lover for life
Capture, there's no getaway
You're my lover, my lover for life
Verse 2

Under your spell or under my own power
It really doesn't matter to me
See I fell in love the first time I saw you
And I have been falling in love ever since

You heard my testimony
You've seen my evidence
Hey, it's a crime of passion
In every sense
And justice would decide
If you stay here in my world
Take me I'm your prisoner
Chorus

    My most favourite whitney song. Preferably sung to my husband on my wedding day but until that day comes... I have a friend who is willing to be by my side until i'm 99. God help him if i live to 108!
