Music Im Feeling: Aretha Franklin - Baby I love you

up again so early in the morning... heard a song on TV by Aretha Franklin... the one that talk about "I never loved a man the way I love you"... then I listened to the rest of the lyrics... and I realized I wasnt totally feeling the whole song as per the words... but then I came across this song... Baby I Love you... and I remember hearing it on American Idol by Jennifer Hudson who did a fabulous job of it in my opinion... and during the audition process I believe a guy used it... my favorite line is "aint no doubt about it baby I love you" and I remember someone belting that out so powerfully... with so much soul... cant remember who... oh well

enjoy

If you want my loving, if you really do
Don't be afraid, baby, just ask me
You know I'm gonna give it to you
Oh an' I do declare (I do), I wanna see you with it
Stretch out your arms, little boy, you're gonna get it
'Cos I love you, (baby baby baby I love you)
Ain't no doubt about it, baby I love you
(Baby baby baby I love you)
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, baby I love you

If you feel you wanna kiss me, go right ahead, I don't mind
All you got to do is snap your fingers
And I'll come a runnin', I ain't lyin' (I ain't lyin')
An' oh, what you want, little boy, you know you got it
I'd deny my own self before I see you without it
'Cos I love you, (baby baby baby I love you)
Ain't no doubt about it, baby I love you
(Baby baby baby I love you)
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, baby I love you

Some day you might want to run away
And leave me sittin' here a cryin'
But if it's all the same to you, baby
I'm gonna stop you from saying goodbye (goodbye)
Baby, I love you, baby I need you, baby I want you
Don't let your neighbors tell you I don't want you
Don't let your low down friends tell you I don't need you ....

i've always wondered, and am still wondering - why it is that even though most songs (at least 70%...?) are about love, we still have broken relationships all over the place...?

there's always hope.. of what you want.. what you wish you could get...

but i think you're trying to draw a parallel where there isnt one :-)
