“Lover for Life” by Whitney Houston Lyrics

Hey yeah baby hoo boy
yeah oh baby
I hope you realize baby
Just what you mean to me (uh)
Hey you where I run for cover
Your love is shelter for me
And when I find myself needing
Some lifting up
One night with you and
That always is enough
How you make being in love
A true rare affair
So take me I’m your prisoner

Will you sentence me
To be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Will you sentence me
I want to be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Your lover yeah yeah yeah
I just want to hear you say
You’ll be my lover, lover for life
Capture, there’s no getaway
You’re my lover, my lover for life

Under your spell or
Under my own power
It really doesn’t matter to me
No boy
See I fell in love
The first time I saw you
And have been falling in love
Ever since mm boy

You heard my testimony
You’ve seen my evidence
Hey, it’s a crime of passion
In every sense
And justice would be served
If you stay here in my world
So take me I’m your prisoner

Will you sentence me
To be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Will you sentence me
I want to be your lover for life
Your lover for life
Your lover yeah yeah yeah
I just want to hear you say
You’ll be my lover, lover for life
Capture, there’s no getaway
You’re my lover, my lover for life

I’m your prisoner
Take me
I’m your prisoner
And sentence me to be
Your lover for life
want to be
Take me baby
Your lover, your baby
