"In My Songs" as written by Gerald Edward Levert, Edwin Lamar Nicholas and Eddie Levert....
I don't mind making you happy
I don't mind making your day
Feels so good to give
But I never, never seem to get my way
I'm tired of waking up with nobody laying next to me (next to me)
I'm tired of being alone and everybody else is lovey dovey (lovey dovey)
I'm so tired of all y'all being happy but me
If I could only find a lover to sing about (oh oh)

When I sing my songs
When I sing my songs

Oh, oh, yeah
See, I know what I want
Something real, something I can feel
And I know it don't come easy
I wanna be with somebody who can share my ups and downs (ups and downs)
And when they're feeling bad, I can be the one to make a smile (make a smile)
Make her realize that I'm the special guy I sing about

(If I could only find her) If I could only find her, a love
I'm searching, I'm searching here and there and everywhere
(If I could only find her) find, if I could find a love to sing about when I

See, every night on my knees
I pray send her to me (please, send her to me, send her to me)
See, I ain't been perfect
In fact, I been dead wrong
But it's time for me to live off the love that I sing about
In my songs

See, listen, I wanna walk down the aisle to my song
I want the first dance to be my song
And I wanna, and I wanna, wanna make love to my song, to my song, yeah
Wanna have babies to my song
I wanna cry, cry, cry, cry when I'm singing my song
I wanna say, "damn it's too good, it's too good to be my song."
I wanna break-up to make-up (break-up to make-up) to my song (oh)
I wanna spend quality time, quality time like my song
Years to years to my song (just like my song)
Waiting for the time when we can say, hmm, this is a song, yeah
Sing it together, sing it together

If I could only find a (if I could only find a) lover (lover to sing about) sing about
(If I could only find a) I been looking and looking, (lover)
Searching here and there, see, this is what I been doing
One week it's good, two weeks is great, three weeks is turbulence
Fourth weeks we just crash and burn, then it's all over
So I gotta find, find a lover to sing about (sing)
