Love Me Right Lyrics

I won't even think twice
There's no reason to be shy
Oh I
I can't lieDon't mean to bother
But I wish that you would give it to me right (right)
I'm not the type to holla
But somehow you know just what I like (what I like)[Chorus]
Oh yeah babe
Oh you babe
You don't know how hard I try
(Hard, I, try)
Oh yeah babe
Oh you babe
Just come on and love me right
(Love me right)Sometimes it's long before I'm home
Spending late nights on the phone (phone)
No castle waiting in the sky
We make believe that we're alone (you and I)[Chorus]I get caught up when I'm stressed out
I need a place to unwind
Some pushing, pulling anyway
You had me dreaming all the timeOh I
I never found someone
Who'd fulfill my every need
It's someone gorgeous
It would be you, you[Chorus: x2]
