Let's stay together

I, I'm I'm so in love with you
Whatever you want to do
Is all right with me
'Cause you make me feel so brand new
And I want to spend my life with you

Let me say that since, baby, since we've been together
Ooh, loving you forever
Is what I need
Let me, be the one you come running to
I'll never be untrue

Oh baby
Let's, let's stay together ('gether)
Lovin' you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
Whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why, somebody, why people break up?
Oh, then turn around and make up
I just can't see
You'd never do that to me (would you, baby?)
Just being around you is all I see
Here's what I want us do

Let's, we oughta stay together ('gether)
Loving you whether, whether
Times are good or bad, happy or sad
Come on
Let's, woo (let's stay together) let's stay together
Loving you whether, whether times are good or bad

    General CommentA beautiful dedication to a loved one. No matter what state his life is in, he will always love this woman. He's tired of seeing all the love rollercoasters surrounding him and ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY appreciates the adoration and stability of his relationship.. Al Green is a luck man.. Although, he's a man of God now.

    General Commentthis is so classic. i love the lyric "you make me feel so brand-new" in almost any song (stylistics - "you make me feel brand new"). this person is so incredible that s/he makes you feel like you have a clean slate and anything is possible. not to mention the utter catchiness... sometimes my boyfriend and i just sing it, it's so great.

    General CommentI think it could possibly be a dedication to the special someone whilst there are maybe going through a rocky patch - hence the title - also the section that goes:

    "Why, somebody?,
    Why do people break up,
    and turn around and make up?
    I just can't see.
    You'd never do that to me
    (would you baby)?"

    That question is almost looking for reassurance. Its the sort of song you'd play to someone just as / before / after a marriage proposal.

    General Commental green is so cool. he's 1 of my favorite oldies singers. all his songs just have this upbeat tune to it, like you're strolling through the park on a pretty summer day.
