Song Lyrics

'Don't Let Them'

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me, yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me and,

Don't let them take your love away.

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me, yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me, yeah

Don't let them take your love away.

(Verse 1)

Some say that I am 'a fool' to love ya (to love ya), yes.

And some say that I am 'too dumb' to know what's right for me

(to know what's right for me).

But only I could live my life, and only I could feel my heartache.

I never claim to know everything, but I know when your love's away

I can't sleep, and I can't eat, and can't live, and I can't breathe

(can't breathe).

(Bridge)

So, don't make a fool of me, just love me, say...

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me, yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me, yeah

Don't let them take your love away.

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me, yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me, yeah

Don't let them take your love away.

(Verse 2)

Now they say that me loving you, will hurt me (will hurt me), yes.

And they say that 'it's a matter of time' before you break my heart

(before you break my heart).

But even when we're far apart, I'll always feel that you are with me.

I hope and pray almost everyday that our love never goes away,

'cause I can't see where I would be without your love all over me

('˜ver me).

(Bridge)

So, don't make a fool of me, just love me, say...

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me, yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me, yeah

Don't let them take your love away.

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me, yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me, yeah

Don't let them take your love away.

(Verse 3)

Baby, you're all (baby, you're all), all that I need (all that I need),

Need in my life (need in my life), right here wit' me (right here wit` me).

Baby, you're all! (baby, you're all!), all that I need! (all that I need!);

Needin' my love! (needin' my love), right here wit' me-eee-yeah, yeah...

(Hook)

Say that you want me (say that you want me, babe!), yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me (and you'll never leave me, babe!) , yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me (tell me how you need me, babe, yeah

Don't let them take your love away (and I will never ever take your love away!).

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah,

Say that you'll never leave me (oooh, you'll never leave!), yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me (yeah-hey!), yeah

Don't let them take (don't let '˜em take...) your love away.

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah (you want me),

Say that you'll never leave me (never leave me), yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me (you need me) and,

Don't let them take your love away.

(Hook)

Say that you want me, yeah (you want me),

Say that you'll never leave me (never leave me), yeah,

You gotta tell me you need me (you need me), yeah

Don't let them take your (yeah-yeah) love away.

(Outro)

Yeah-hey'¦

Say that you love, and say that you need'¦me.

Aah-aah-aah-hooo-ooh-aah-aah-hoo-ooh-aah-oh'¦

Yeah'¦yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah'¦
