Don't try to blow out the sun for me baby
I'm not hoping for what I know can't be

All that I ask, is for a kiss each day
And I'll give you love that will never go away

Yes I will, yes I will, yes I will

'Cause girl I wouldn't ask you to lift up this great big world little baby
I know that your not that kind of a girl

All that I ask, is for a kiss or two
And nothing in this world will be too good for you

Nobody(x7) knows, how deep my love for you really goes

Nevermind now , with your heart ,how much you say(x5)
(on 6th line changes to)
Nevermind now how much you say, much you say
(or "what you say")

Oooooooh... (descending)

'Cause girl, I want you to know
I wouldn't ask you to hold back the dawn by the dawn baby
That's just a little too much to ask of anyone

All that I ask, is for your loving ways
And I'll keep you happy for the rest of your natural born days
(or "natural warm days", whatever)

Nevermind now , with your heart ,how much you say(x3)
Nevermind now how much you say, much you say

    General CommentMAN! I love this song. Nina Simone cover. It's actually the only song to always ALWAYS cheer me up. Nobody expects you to be perfect, and someone loves you - you, the organic you, the way you naturally are without thinking about it. Amazing grace.

    General CommentOh, plus, it's "never mind now in your heart how much it hurts".

    General CommentIT's actually:

    "Nevermind with your heart, how much is owed."

    I checked with the version he played in Live a L'Olympia, and that's what he sings, on *that* version at least.
