Ingram, James - Baby, Come To Me Lyrics

Thinkin' back in time
When love was only in my mind, I realize
Ain't no second chance
You've got to hold on to romance, don't let it slide
There's a special kind of magic in the air
When you find another heart that needs to share

Baby, come to me, let me put my arms around you
This was meant to be and I'm oh so glad I found you
Need you ev'ry day, gotta have your love around me
Baby, always stay 'cause I can't go back to livin' without you

Spendin' ev'ry dime
To keep you talkin' on the line
That's how it was
And all those walks together out in any kind of weather
Just because
There's a brand-new way of looking at your life
When you know that love is standing by your side


The nights can be cold
There's a chill to ev'ry evenin' when you're all alone

Don't talk anymore
'cause you know that I'll be here to keep you warm
(Oh, darling keep me warm)

Baby, come to me, let me put my arms around you
This was meant to be and I'm oh so glad I found you
Need you ev'ry day, gotta have your love around me
Baby, always stay
[PATTI:] 'cause I can't go back to livin' without you

Baby, come to me, let me put my arms around you
This was meant to be and I'm oh so glad I found you
Need you ev'ry day, gotta have your love around me
Baby, always stay
[JAMES:] 'cause I can't go back to livin' without you

Baby, come to me, let me put my arms around you
This was meant to be
and I'm oh so glad I found you
Need you ev'ry day, gotta have your love around me
Baby, always

  45. Chantel Young

    I remember this song, this is my song. My mum use to talk with me about love, one day I realize LOVE is all I got. I later grew to know that if you don't have love then you have nothing, and found that anything that you do have that without love it means nothing. I was born in the nineteen eighties, January the 12, to be precise, still filtering out the 70's; that's why I still feel the mix. It was my mother whom gave me this record, and she gave me a little record player just for me when I was 5 or 6 and I played it over and over again; it helped me to sleep good and well, and to not have nightmares. I liked it a lot. I also was given a learning record and this kids songs record and I had the Jackson's 5 tweeteleet record, smile.



  47. Chantel Young

    Love is the only magic you need. Light of mine. LOVE CONQUERS ALL.

  48. Randy Rankin

  63. tonytwenties

    Man... Growing up east side detroit.. sitting on "colored" Johns porch with him and "Polish" John listening .. like 8 years old.. driving home with Dad (Detroit was grandmother house) song come on radio, father would crank it all rhe way up, we both be singing ... Get home.. mother have the record playing.. lol....

    Back when everything was better .. music . Race relations.. before NAFTA sent our jobs away and brought even more drugs than we already had.. back before the media outlets could keep us divided.. back when someone said "racism" and it actually was... How is it we are going backwards with every single thing???? Growing up didnt see color.. all black friends from 4-7 years old. Finally found out there were other white kids when I was 8... After dad finished fixing our house up, he put in pool.. then on sunday he pick me up from Grandma's in summer and all my black friends got to come stay with us for the week.. the white kids by me finally seen black kids. Immediately everyone just started playing ... And then boom!!! Fast forward 25 years.. game over . Thanks media.. and social media.. way to keep us divided.. id give anything to relive them 25 years and then just die after... Id be good, instead of having to watch our country rot away every day... dad died.. cleaning his house out.. started playing his black records (75% of his collection).. newer black neighbor moved in..met him at father's funeral... Knew all his black friends, black co-workers and black Vietnam buddies , but didn't know one man... So I introduce myself .. he expressed his sympathy... He just wanted to say by to my father and thank him and us for sharing him.. went on to tell me,my father pretty much remodeled their house (2-3 hours a night) teaching him how to do everything... He said he didn't know white people and thought we all hated black people... Then he said when roof contractor was cutting corners to rip em off and not follow code all while doing It without a permit.. my father walked over n acted interested in hiring them as well, guy gsve him his card, in return my father said "you might wanna take my card", my father's card said eastpointe Michigan building inspector and code enforcement... My father told them , they better do this family right or he would violate him and prosecute them.. he told me funniest thing though, never seen my father for first three weeks they lived next door, finally dad got in early and walked over to introduce himself... The black dude says " oh, how many houses down?" Dad told him right next door.. guy tells his wife that all that Luther, and Peabo and al jarreu and James Ingram music always playing at night must be the black folks 2 House away .. dad started cracking up.. said nope, I'm your black neighbor ... Guy was amazed. Actually came back morning of final service snd speak ... Many spoke that morning.. blacks, Italians, polish folks that survived death Camps , parents of kids that were friends of the grandkids who my father always helped too... But the black neighbor was most touching , choked everyone up, because he said it changed his whole outlook on white folks and came so he did not brainwash his kids with the whole "whitey don't like you, don't trust him"....... Told everyone dad helped all his black neighbors and old white neighbors . Even as little as bringing their garbage cans in or out on garbage night.. father raised us all the same... Hired black employees even less experienced ones because like my father we were great teachers to whoever.. one kid was sharp.. gave him raise.. then he started second guessing orders .. when I left site, he was in charge, I'd tell him what order he makes others do the work. So on my return I could do my hard stuff.. he thought he had better way.. costs me $$$$$.. so finally I had to let him go...he can in for his last check during our Friday am mtng... Had 7 workers there , 3 black, 1 Mexican, 1 white guy and 2 hillbillies... This dude calling me punk , every name in book... I let it go.. then he pulled the RACIST shit.. saying I fired him because im racist.. I snapped Immediately thinking of my old timers and dad's nam buddies the men I looked up to since a kid, men who i know lived through the tough times .... Then. I had to remind him I knew he was black when hiring him,. And giving him 25% raise after month because I seen the great talent in him..... Also had to remind him how long the other 3:black dudes been with me... Sorry... This is depressing to see us going backwards .

  64. Karen Kelly

    Wow Talent at its BEST

  65. Troy Evitt

  70. D E

    I grew up on this song. My big brothers played it a lot along with other old school then. It's always so emotional and make me teary every time Its playing.

    And btw, those days were when black men are beautiful and good looking in their afros. Not now when black men acts and look like girls with stupid braid, and crazy lines all over their heads lol. They're now competing with girls. It's a shame some are acting like we've lost out identity. No we haven't. Some of us still rep to the fullest. And there's talents, class and substance and meaning in their music then. I love my blackness.

  71. Lisa Wolfgramm

    Love this song brings back memories of my siblings and myself growing up in Auckland New Zealand. Just like I've always said these musicians are fantastic
