"Whatever You Need"
Whatever you need

Album: Twenty Four Seven - 1999

In what other lives have I known your kiss
And what forgotten moments have I felt like this
The way you touch me I come undone
You know me more than anyone
Whatever you want

In what other lives have I touched your face
And what words did we whisper in a strange forbidden place
To be with you baby is to find myself
We're two of a kind, you and I
I couldn't love anyone else
You are my beginning, my end
You are my lover, my friend
In this life, in this time

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, yeah yeah yeah

Yeah
In what other lives did I feel your skin
And when exactly did I breathe you in
Feel like I've known you for a thousand years
You're so familiar to me and there is no fear
You are my beginning, my end
You are my lover, my friend
In this life, in this time

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Watch the sun go down, yeah yeah
My past and future in you are bound, oh yeah
I watch as time moves on, I'm alive and strong
And when I'm with you there's no right, no wrong

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
I'm gonna be right here waiting, baby baby
Whatever you want (Whatever you want)
Whatever you need (Whatever you need)
I will be right here waiting, baby baby baby
Whatever you want, whatever you need
Whatever you want
Right here, right here waiting
Right here, right here waiting

River deep mountain high

Single: River Deep Mountain High - Ike and Tina Turner - 1966

When I was a little girl, I had a rag doll?
The only doll I ever owned?
Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll
But only now my love has grown

And it gets stronger in every way
And it get's deeper let me say
And it get's higher day by day

And do I love you?
My oh my, yeah
River deep, mountain high
Yeah yeah yeah
If I lost you
Would I cry?
Oh, I love you baby baby baby baby

When you were a young boy, did you have a puppy?
That always followed you around?
Well, I'm gonna be as faithful as that puppy
No, I'll never never let you down

'Cause it gets stronger as the river flows
And it gets bigger baby and heaven knows
And it gets sweeter baby as it goes

Do I love you?
My oh my!
River deep, mountain high
Yeah yeah yeah
Do I love you?
Would I cry?
Oh, I love you baby baby baby baby

I love you baby like a flower loves the spring
I love you baby like a robin likes to sing
I love you baby like a schoolboy likes his pie
Oh and I love you baby!
River deep, mountain high
Do I love you?
Would I cry?
Oh, I love you baby baby baby baby
Oh, yeah oh yeah...

Ooh, do I love you?
My oh my!
River deep, mountain high
Yeah yeah yeah
Do I love you?
Would I cry?
Oh, I love you baby baby baby baby

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
