"On Bended Knee" as written by James Samuel Harris Iii and Terry Lewis....
Darlin' I can't explain, where did we lose our way
Girl, it's drivin' me insane and I know
I just need one more chance to prove my love to you
If you come back to me I guarantee that I'll never let you go.
can we go back to the days our love was strong.
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong.
Can somebody tell me how you get things back the way it used to be
Oh God give me the reason, I'm down on bended knees
I'll never walk again until you come back to me I'm down on bended knees.

Darlin' I can't explain, where did we lose our way
Girl, it's drivin' me insane and I know
I just need one more chance to prove my love to you
If you come back to me I guarantee that I'll never let you go.
can we go back to the days our love was strong.
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong.
Can somebody tell me how you get things back the way it used to be
Oh God give me the reason, I'm down on bended knees
I'll never walk again until you come back to me I'm down on bended knees.

Gonna swallow my pride, say I'm sorry,
stop pointing fingers, the blame is on me
I want a new life and I want it with you
If you feel the same don't ever let it go.
You gotta believe in the spirit of love
It can heal all things we won't hurt anymore
No, I don't believe our loves terminal.
I'm down on my knees, begging you please come home.


Darlin' I can't explain, where did we lose our way
Girl, it's drivin' me insane and I know
I just need one more chance to prove my love to you
If you come back to me I guarantee that I'll never let you go.
can we go back to the days our love was strong.
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong.
Can somebody tell me how you get things back the way it used to be
Oh God give me the reason, I'm down on bended knees
I'll never walk again until you come back to me I'm down on bended knees.

So many nights I dream of you
Holding my pillow tight
I know I don't need to be alone
When I open up my eyes
To face reality
Every moment without you
seems like eternity
I'm begging yo, begging you, come back to me

Darlin' I can't explain, where did we lose our way
Girl, it's drivin' me insane and I know
I just need one more chance to prove my love to you
If you come back to me I guarantee that I'll never let you go.
can we go back to the days our love was strong.
Can you tell me how a perfect love goes wrong.
Can somebody tell me how you get things back the way it used to be
Oh God give me the reason, I'm down on bended knees
I'll never walk again until you come back to me I'm down on bended knees.

    General CommentWhen i was a little girl, this song was popular. My dad says I used to always sing it under my breath and he heard me one day and i was saying- "come down by livin me" instead of "i'm down on bended knee" I dunno, thats just funny to me. Anyway this song is really nice and its nice to hear a man to beg his girl to come back instead of vice-versa.

    General CommentWow... this song leaves me speechless. It's breath-taking. Yeah, I almost always feel like crying whenever I hear this song - even just the beginning of the song!! The tune is so beautiful, their voices, the words - everything about it!!! If only all men could swallow their pride and be like these guys!! This song really touches the heart and soul so deeply. Also makes me feel emotional because of the memories associated with this song - when I was in the 5th and 6th grade!!! This song was just soooo popular!! What a huge hit it was!!! Love the video clip. Just a classic song, I love boyz II men soo much... they're really beautiful.
