​I Want You Here With Me

This song is by The O'Jays and appears on the album Identify Yourself (1979).

I want you here with me
Come on inside my world
Let me share my love with you
Be with me everyday

I want you here with me
'Cause you're so far away
I need you closer so I can love you
Love you in every way

Why don't you come on, come on, come on, come on to me
This is where you belong
So I can protect and love you
Love you the way I know you should be loved

And if by chance I'm movin' a little too fast
And you've got some other plans that don't include me
But if you feel the same way, the same way I do
Then you ought to pack your clothes, I'm comin' to get you

I want you here with me, baby (You and me)
I want you in my arms
Here we are talkin' on the phone for hours
And we could be together

I want you here with me
I need you by my side, oh
When I'm away from you I'm so lonely
I'm so lonely, I'm only half alive

And if by chance I'm movin' a little too fast
And you've got some other plans that don't include me
But if you feel the same way, the same way I do
Then you ought to pack your clothes, I'm comin' to get you

I want you here with me
Oh, I want you in my arms, oh
Here we are again talkin' on the phone for hours
When you know one thing, one thing, girl, we'll be together

Why don't you come on, come on, come on
This is where you belong
I just wanna protect you and love you
Just the way, just the way I know you ought to be loved

One thing for sure
I'm over here {Yeah, yeah}, you're over there {Well, well}
This love affair ain't goin' nowhere
{We need to be together, baby}

I need you by my side, when we're apart
(We're only half alive, alive and I wanna live, I wanna live)
If you feel the way I do, pack your clothes
(I'm comin' to get you, baby, just as fast as I can, I'm over here)

Come on, come on, come to me
{Ah... ooh... ooh... I just wanna hear come on}
Come on, come on, come to me
{Ah... come on, girl, come on}

Come to me (Come on, babe)
Come to me
Come to me (I need you, I really, I really do)

Come to me (Come on)
Come to me (Come on)
Come to me (This is where we belong, this is where you belong)

Come to me
Come to me
Come to me

Come to me
Come to me
Come to me
