Verse 2

I've been waiting for you, It's been so long. I knew just what I would do, when I heard your song. You filled my heart with your bliss, you gave me freedom. You knew I could not resist, I needed someone. And now we're flyin' through the stars I hope this night lasts forever... Huh, Huh, Huh, Hu-h...

Chorus

Ain't nobody (nobody!), loves me better (that .. can make me feel this way.) Makes me happy, makes me feel this way Ain't nobody (ain't nobody) , loves me better (nobody) Ain't nobody, loves me better (nobody baby..) Ain't nobody, (nobody baby..) loves me better Some fill-ins sung by Chaka Kahn during the last Choruses before fade out: (Aaah (you) make me feel just like your love, (is) so much love, (I) can't look up, feel the bonk of love ... now I know .. another bite .. makes me want to scream and shout ... whoa .. nobody) A Note on Lyrics: Chorus parts were sung by background singers. Parts sung by Chaka Kahn during Chorus are listed in (parentheses). A Note on Chords: (1) You can use "Bm7" (B minor Seven) instead of "D/B", wich means "D major using a "B" instead of a "D" as lowest note. (2) In the VERSES: If you prefer to (to some of you, it might sound better), you can also use plain "D" major chords instead of "D/C" and "D/E". I play those chords around the seventh fret. There, those base notes sound OK to me. (3) "B7sus4" means a B suspended chord with an additional seventh and a fourth ("E") note instead of the third. The notes (1-5-7-4') are (B-F#-a-e). "Cmaj7" means a plain C major chord with an addtional major seventh ("B") note. "Em" and "Am" mean "E minor" and "A minor" chords. Credits: I'd like to thank the guy who posted the previous "intermediate" chords and lyrics version for providing me with a basis to work on. Basically I did not entirely agree with the chords and changed some of the phrasing in the lyrics to match with what I heard on the 1984 Rufus and Chaka Kahn recording. I hope some folks think it was worthwhile enhancing it.
