Comeback Hit - I Call It Love

Call me a soppy old thing, but Lionel Richie's new song, "I Call It Love," is a wonderful single as a comeback song, considering it's been a while since Richie came up with a new album. It has a catchy rhythm, and I can't seem to get it out of my head, but, in a good way, not in a "Macarena" or "Ketchup Song" way.

What steams me is the format of the song lyrics as they're posted on various lyrics sites. I mean, don't these people even try to get the grammar right? Ah well.

I've tried to clean up the lyrics as best as I can, and my effort is posted below. I didn't try to fix the punctuation too much, though; it was just too much of a hassle. Anyway, enjoy.

I Call It Love
Lionel Richie

I look at you , you look at me
(You can't tell me you ain't feeling butterflies)
Its obvious, there's some chemistry
(I think I know it 'cause it feels so right)
Girl, I wanted so long to know
Now you're telling me you gotta let it go
(Don't tell me I have to start all over again)
I never thought that this day would come
(This is something that i wanted in my life)
I realize that you're the one
(and you're telling me it's time to say goodbye)
what's inside of my heart, it ain't gonna change
So it shouldn't be so easy to walk away
(You feel it, I feel it, let's not pretend)

(Chorus)
Baby, I don't know what love is , maybe I'm a fool.
I just know what I'm feeling, and it's all because of you.
Don't tell me, I don't know, I want the truth.
'Cause they call it, we call it, you call it,
I call it love.

It's so clear for you to see
(Don't let anybody tell you what to do)
Why they can't they just let us be happy?
(I don't want to find somebody new)
If you know what's really in your heart,
Then don't let them tear us apart.
('Cause you feel it, I feel it, don't say we're through)

(Chorus)
Baby, I don't know what love is , maybe I'm a fool
I just know what I'm feeling, and it's all because of you
Don't tell me, I don't know, I want the truth.
'Cause they call it, we call it, you call it,
I call it love .

We have a bond that's unbreakable ,
And it's not time to let it go .
(We're in love)
And now that we know it's real
We are going to let it show
To the whole world
That I'm yours forever
and you're my girl ...
You're my everything...
I don't know...

(Chorus)
Baby, I don't know what love is , maybe I'm a fool
I just know what I'm feeling, and it's all because of you
Don't tell me, I don't know, I want the truth.
'Cause they call it, we call it, you call it,
I call it love .
(Repeat 2)

Love
They call it love
I call it
Love.
