Now you say, every time you need some affection
The one you love goes in another direction
You just sit back in a daze and miss him
'Cause you know some other lips, he's been kissing

Now when you need the love you never showed, you come 'round here
And when you need some loving arms to hold, you come 'round here

Now I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
But I know I'm the one you need
(Honey, honey)
Say now, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
But, I know, I'm the one you need
(Honey, honey)

Your life stands still the minute he goes
You count the hours just hoping he shows

Girl, can't you see while you're looking for his touch
(Honey, honey)
That I'm the one who loves you so much
(Honey, honey)
And while you're longing for his embrace
(Honey, honey)
You're all lonely with the tears on your face
(Honey, honey)

Now when you feel the need to cry to someone, cry to me
And when you feel the need to lean on someone, lean on me

Now, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
But I'm sure 'nough the one you need
(Honey, honey)
Oh, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
But I'm sure 'nough the one you need
(Honey, honey)

Now the days, the days, the days you sit round by yourself
He's out fooling round with somebody else
Leaving you alone here with nothing to do
He's just waiting till he has time for you

Now, when the loneliness get hard to take, girl come 'round here
And when you need a little tender lover care, girl come 'round here

Now, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
But, I'm sure 'nough the one you need
(Honey, honey)
Oh yeah, I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
(Honey, honey)

I may not be the one you want
(Honey, honey)
But, I'm sure 'nough the one you need
