"Reachin' for Something I Can't Have" as written by and William/weatherspoon Cato/dean Weatherspoon....
(Got me reachin', reachin', you got me reachin', reachin')
Reachin' for somethin' I can't have, though it may cause me pain
Needing his love so much till only hurt remains
Standing high on society hill, a voice calls out to me
From a boy I love & need so much, he says he's not for me
'Cause I live up & he lives down, on the poor side of town
But still I'm reachin', reachin'; I can't help reachin', reachin'
'Cause he tells me he has nothin' & his place is not with me
His pride keeps him away, but still I love him more each day
So I'll keep...

Reachin' for somethin' I can't have, though it may cause me pain
Needing his love so much till only hurt remains
He says he cannot give me all the things a rich man can
"Stay on your hill & don't look down; forget our love began"
& even though he loves me so, he must let me go
But still I'm reachin', reachin'; I can't help reachin', reachin'
For a boy who cannot give me nothin' but his love
But he's everything I need & I've got to make him see
So I'll keep...

Reachin' for somethin' I can't have, though it may cause me pain
Needing his love so much till only hurt remains
I need him & I want him & I don't care if he has nothing
Just to have him close to me, that's all I ever need
