To Be A Lover Lyrics

by Billy Idol

Have I told you
Lately that I love you
If I didn't, darlin'
You see, I'm so sorry
Didn't I reach out
And hold you
In these lovin' arms
Well, if I didn't, oh baby
Well, I'm so sorry

When I realized that you need love too
Gonna spend my life makin' love to you
Got to be a lover
Have mercy
Forgot to be a lover, babe
Forgot to be a lover
Forgot to be a lover
Make it on through to you somehow
Got to be a lover, babe
Forgot to be a lover

Well, did I ask you
Yes, would you come and share
Oh, share
Oh, the burden and the task
That's at love's command
Didn't I say
All those lovin' special things
That you long to hear
To show how much I care

Well, when I realize
That you need love too
Gonna spend my life
Makin' love to you
Forgot to be a lover
Have mercy

Well, well I worked all day
Hard as I can
Worked all night, didn't make me a man
Forgot to be a lover
Have mercy

When I realized
That you need love too
Gonna spend my life
Makin' love to you
Forgot to be a lover
Got to be a lover, babe
Mercy
Have mercy, baby
I'm gonna make it on through
To you somehow
So have mercy

Have I told you
Yes, lately that I love you
If I didn't, oh baby
Yes, I'm so sorry
Ah, but you know I really love you, baby
I really love you, baby
I really need you, baby
I really want you, baby

When I realized
That you need love too
I'm gonna spend my life
Makin' love
Makin' love
Makin' love to you
Well, I worked all day
As hard as I can
Worked all night
It didn't make me a man, babe
Forgot to be a lover
Have mercy baby
Have mercy baby
Have mercy baby
Make it through

Well, when I realized that you need love too
I'm gonna spend my life
Gotta spend my life makin' love to you
Forgot to be a lover
Forgot to be a lover
Have mercy
Have mercy
Have mercy baby
Have mercy baby
Forgot to be a lover
Have mercy
Have mercy
Have mercy baby
