ASHFORD & SIMPSON lyrics - Over And Over

ASHFORD & SIMPSON
"Over And Over"
(Nick Ashford / Valerie Simpson)

[Chorus:]
Over and over
Time and time again
You can't be nobody's lover
You can't be nobody's lover
Till you're somebody's friend

[Chorus]

I love you
To me you're a shining star
First let's find out just who we are

[Bridge:]
First you got to look deep to see
Take some time in my company
Don't be afraid to explore
This time we've got to be sure

[Chorus]

I told you before
I'll tell you again
You can't be nobody's lover
You can't be nobody's lover
Till you're somebody's friend

What's a book before it's read?
How can the cover say all that's to be said?
Who am I, lion or the lamb?
Baby, I want you to know all the folks I am

[Bridge]

[Chorus]
