Eric Benét Gonna Be My Girl Lyrics

sponsored links
First time I ever saw you across a crowded cafe
I was staring at my future face to face
You were like a loving memory though we'd never met before
Then you smiled and my heart was yours forever more
Of all the things I've known that can't be denied
I've never been so sure in all my life

I don't know how
I don't know when
I don't know what I'm gonna say to make it all begin
But I do know one thing
As sure as anything
As sure as love is still alive in this world
You're gonna be my girl
You're gonna be, you're gonna be my
You're gonna be my girl

See I was going through some changes and I know I broke your heart
But I've been working on myself since we've been apart
(Some things you have to just let go till you learn the way to hold them)
You were the best of anything I've ever known
The love we had comes once upon a life (once in a life)
And I'll be damned if I give up, just let it die

I don't know how
I don't know when
I don't know what I'm gonna do to bring it back begin
But I do know one thing
As sure as anything
As sure as love is still alive in this world
You're gonna be my girl
You're gonna be, you're gonna be my
You're gonna be my girl

I know this road won't be easy (I know baby)
It's gonna be the fight of my life (of my life yeah)
But a love that tries is a love that survives
And I'll be holding on with of my mind
'Cause I

I don't know how
I don't know when
I don't know what the hell to do to bring it back begin
But I do know one thing
As sure as anything
As sure as love is still alive in this world
You're my girl, you're my girl

I don't know how (my yeah yeah)
I don't know when
I don't know what the hell to do to bring it back begin
But I do know one thing
As sure as anything
As sure as love is still alive in this world

You're gonna be my girl
You're gonna be, you're gonna be my
You're gonna be my girl
You're gonna be, you're gonna be my
You're gonna be my girl
