Roberta Flack - Making Love Lyrics

Here close to our feelings
We touch again
We love again
Remember when we thought
Our hearts would never mend
And we're all the better for each other

There's more to love I know
Than making love

Here no more confusion
We see our lives
We live our lives
Remember when we thought
We never would survive
But now neither one of us is breaking

There's more to love I know
Than making love

Some things never change
Some things sometimes do

[Instrumental Interlude]

And now I'm feeling strong enough to let you in
And now neither one of us is breaking
Knowing now there's more to love
Than making love
And I'll remember you and making love
And I'll remember you
And I'll remember you
And I'll remember you
And I'll remember you

Roberta Flack Making Love Comments
  1. maha77

    I was just reading an old journal with an entry from May 13th 1988 and I mentioned the song to myself in the journal and I realized I have not heard this song since then, so here I am and it sounds as good as it always has


    Some songs have a way of transporting you through space and time...

  3. bostonsirish1

    OMG this is a staple in my childhood and I couldn't remember anything about it except the harmony ! I knew it must of been Roberta flak that unmistakable voice! Thanks for sharing I totally balled my eyes out

  4. Daniel Blain

    Love the movie love the song the movie was ahead of its time

  5. ConsumerWarrior

    The movie to this song was controversial for its time. I never saw the movie through. However, I did hear that Kate Jackson and Michael Ontkean did an excellent job at playing their respective roles in the film. In any event, there's nothing controversial about the song itself. Nobody could have sung this song better than Roberta Flack. I was a teenage kid back when this song was all over the radio dial, and it brings back memories of the summer of 1982. I give it a thumbs-up. :-)

  6. Jose Ruiz

    OMG. This is a really beautiful song.

    Intimately Yours

    Written By: Kelli Elaine?

    Intimate Conversations

    Mental masturbation

    Though quite stimulating

    CunningLinguistic pro

    Trying to get ahead in my bed



    Go getter

    Story teller

    I know you well

    I know me better

    It starts slow

    A smile here

    A kind gesture there

    Before you know it

    Late night words


    Pillow talk, evoking

    Slow, sweet and sensual

    Are the thoughts that internalize

    You just know he's got to see the desire in your eyes

    The tension is palpable

    Intentions mused

    She's confused

    She loves time spent

    But can't be sure

    If what's happening is meant

    To be


    What are we doing here

    I'm grown

    I'm aware

    Feelings getting in the way is what

    I fear

    It's all or nothing

    Always has been

    Can't be a lover

    Without first being a friend

    In doing so

    The story is over

    Before it begins



    Stroking that fire

    Watching your lips

    Needing to feel your hands on my hips

    I'm not good at games

    A novice, if you will

    You're looking in the wrong direction

    If all you need is a release for your massive erection

    I could put my feelings on the shelf

    But I've never been one to play myself

    Games Games and more Games to be played

    You should have come with instructions

    Thought it was more

    But no, we were just two people fucking......

    Bed games


    Head games

    To think,

    I did things to you and with you

    I never thought I'd do

    To know I would be with you intimately,

    I would anticipate

    Shit, couldn't wait

    But for all my efforts

    Being disregarded

    Should've just had a V8

    I shouldn't have come over

    I shouldn't have stayed

    I lost myself in a moment in time

    Looking for

    Seeing something that wasn't there

    Shit, I wear glasses but when it comes to shit like this

    I may as well be blind

    Time is too precious

    To be played with and playing around

    Intimacy is too delicate

    Things shared so privately

    From you I want to flee

    But that shit you do so well

    You did that shit to me

    It wasn't the sex

    That's just gravy

    I opened up and shared

    Like never before

    To have a trust like that broken

    But it's cool, it's okay

    I don't get even

    I don't keep score

    Never request

    From another

    What you're not willing to give in return

    Trust, is an honor

    And with me It must be earned

    I am just a woman

    Just like any other woman

    But if games are what's on the menu

    You've got another thing coming

    Check please

    I am no mystery

    I'll give you a clue

    The friendship

    The connection

    Whatever it may be Is history

    No matter what you do

    Never value one more than they value you

    Intimate friends

    Maybe, once

    As we mature

    And look at our lives

    We must grow up

    What I see

    What I had hoped

    Well, was just a dream

    Because people wear masks

    Things aren't always as they seem

    Looks like we've run our course

    Lack of care On your behalf

    Now mine

    Out of sight

    Out of mind

    No time to waste

    I've lost my taste

    What a fucking waste

    I'll bow out gracefully

    No need to try

    All that's needed is a simple

    Take Care



    Intimately Yours........

  8. Justin Justice

    This song always makes me feel better no matter how bad things get. Roberta's beautiful voice is better medicine than any drug.

  9. Johnny Johnson

    Heard this song when I was very young, but didn't understand it until after the hurt, pain and spiritually of Marriage...

  10. Ruby B.vd.K

    My gosh her voice is so beautiful.

  11. Alexis Araneta

    Ever since discovering this song, I've been wanting to see it on YouTube for the longest time (so I can pull it up and listen to it anytime I want). One of my favourite things about Ms. Roberta is that raw, warm voice that drips of emotion. You feel every note. This one showcases that perfectly. The rather simple instrumentation also reinforces that. A real gem !

    The emotion that makes its way through the stillness of this song - anguish revealed. 11/2019

  17. Bronxboy47

    This gay man is thinking of sending this to his dearest female friend. I'm sure she'll understand. I love her deeply, and there's more to love than making love.

    This came out at the same time me and my first love broke up in high school. Today was the first time after our breakup, where I could make it through the entire song...still feel the pain, but I have someone that I love just as dear, even more..."and now I'm feeling strong enough to let you in..."

    I almost forgot about this song... I haven't heard it in well over twenty years! And just right now a memory popped up in my head and simple little note came to my head after and this song popped up... And here I am right here listening to it such a beautiful song!

  34. jk mj

    o_O. .. our 💙 never mend.......

  35. Jojo

    The entire track is so perfectly composed...thank you Burt!

    But oh those few last measures when Roberta’s angelic voice is singing “...and I’ll remember you” followed by the Rhodes keyboard emulating the same notes.

    My entire being is immersed in the most powerful melancholic state; tears aching to stream down my cheeks while the corners of my mouth break into a subtle smile as poignant memories of past love affairs parade through my mind!

    Where are those women now...

  36. Lionel Thomas

    A great song and I love the movie

    A very sad movie and when they played this song at the end both my wife and I were in tears.


    Here close to our feelings we touch again
    We love again
    Remember when we thought
    Our hearts would never mend
    And we're all the better for each other
    There's more to love, I know
    Than making love
    Here no more confusion, we see our lives
    We live our lives
    Remember when we thought
    We never would survive
    But now neither one of us is breaking
    There's more to love, I know
    Than making love
    Some things never change
    Some things sometimes do
    And now I'm feeling strong enough to let you in
    And now neither one of us is breaking
    Now we know there's more to love
    Than making love
    And I'll remember you and making love
    And I'll remember you
    And I'll remember you
    And I'll remember you
    And I'll remember you

    Theme from "Making Love" woman finds out her husband is gay.


    Reminds me of the season finale of 1981-1982 season of Knots Landing when Val left Gary for cheating on her with Abby


    The scene where he is chasing her on foot by the side of her car as she is driving away crying
