TELL ME YOU LOVE ME...LEELA JAMES

This woman speaks to me!  I love the richness of her voice.  I love love love this song.  It is soooo old school Saturday night! Anyway, I feeling this song in a big big way.



I unpacked my chest for you
Do everything that you want me to
Can't believe I gave you all my love
What in the world was I thinkin' of?

I just let it all slip away
With every minute, hour of the day
And if it really meant to be, just share with me
Why do I still feel incomplete?

Tell me, yeah
I need to know, baby
I got to know
Tell me, yeah
Tell me that you love me

If I give you what you need
Would you do the same thing for me?
'Cause I don't want to be alone
I want you here all night long

'Cause when you leave me, baby
I'm thinkin' about you always
I'm ashamed to say
How much I want you to stay

Baby, tell me, yeah
I need to know
Say it now
I got to know
Tell me that you love me

Now you see
I'm not tryin' to make a big fuss over this
But I'm just sayin', you need to let me know how you feel sometimes
Say it, it's not wrong, expressing yourself?
That's what wo- women like that, you know what I'm sayin'?
You know, you got to tap into your romantic side
Shoot, return the love, baby, return the love

I need to know, I want to know
I need to know, I want to know
I need to know, I want to know

I need to know, yeah baby
I got to know, oh, tell me
Tell me that you love me, love me, love me, love me
That you love me, love me, love me, love me

I unpacked my chest for you
Do everything that you want me to
Can't believe I gave you all my love

Yes. Feelin this song. She's the truth! Leela is baaaaaaaad!

Her vocals always stand out, and her brand of soul is soooo CLASSIC and rooted in the Blues that it sounds original in this day & age. Dig her madly! I have her version of "A Time Go'n Come" on my player.


One.

I have dug Ms. James and her music since 8 first heard her song 'Music' many years ago. Her voice is powerful but those lyrics are...my thoughts turned into words.
