"Dear Lover"
written by Teena Marie
©1983 Midnight Magnet Music Publishing (ASCAP)

Oooo
If I could paint a picture
Of the love I have inside
It would paint all of you
And all of me
Without no thought of pride
Then maybe you would know
Exactly all the things I feel
Not just a maybe, but baby
I'm for real
Cause I've been wishing on a star and hoping
Just as it shoots across the sky
Searching for the so-called answers
That we're supposed to find in time
Holding you close
Not letting go
Baby, I've got to let you know

Dear lover, I hope this letter finds you
Dear lover, and that it comes in time to say no
C'est la vie -- baby
Dear lover -- listen to me

If I could write your name out
Forever in the Hall of Fame
It would be history, no mystery
And no at all in vain
I'd quote a poet on a verse
That I read when I was small
And write your name out, across the sky
In letters ten feet tall
Cause I've been wishing on the rings of Saturn
Calling on Jupiter and Mars
Praying on ten zillion light years
To bring you closer ot my heart
Holding you close
Not letting go
Baby I've got to let you know

Dear lover, I hope this letter finds you
Dear lover, and that it comes in time to say no
C'est la vie -- baby
Dear lover -- listen to me

Baby -- listen to me darlin'
Baby -- every word that I say
Baby -- I'll give you my love -- ooo
Baby -- if you say you love me
I'll be right by your side
Dare anyone to try to take you from me
all my life
Straight from my heart, dear lover
Ooo -- dear lover, dear lover
Straight -- straight -- straight from my heart
Ooo -- dear lover, dear lover
