William Bell – 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 arm
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, so sorry

Have I taken the
Time to share with you
All the burdens, a love affair

And have I done the
Little simple things to show you
Just how much I care

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

If you'll forgive me
I'll make it up to you
I'm only a man and I forgot...
