Monumental Soundbyte - 72

Luther Vandross - A House Is Not A Home

What isnt to love about this song?

Originally done by Dionne Warwick in 1964, i will admit that i prefer Luther's version. Then again i am biased. My darling Luther took this song and made pure magic with it. Like warm honey - this song just eases along. Kanye West and Jamie Foxx worked with this song on Slow Jam as well.....I will let the words of this song do all the talking....Enjoy!

A chair is still a chair, even when there's no one sittin there
But a chair is not a house and a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight
And no one there you can kiss goodnight
Whoa...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...Girl

A room is a still a room, even when there's nothin there but gloom
But a room is not a house and a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends, it ends in tears

Pretty little darling, have a heart
Don't let one mistake keep us apart
I'm not meant to live alone
Turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there
Sayin that you're still in love with me, yeah

I'm not meant to live alone, turn this house into a home
When I climb the stairs and turn the key
Oh, please be there, still in love
I said still in love
Still in love with you

Are you gonna be in love with me
I want you and need to be
Still in love with me
Say you're gonna be in love with me
It's drivin me crazy to think that my baby
Couldn't be still in love with me

Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Are you gonna be, say you're gonna be
Well, well, well, well
Still in love, so in love, still in love with me
Are you gonna be
Say that you're gonna be
Still in love with me
