The Real Thing Lyrics

Artist: Kenny Loggins
Album: Leap Of Faith

Amanda, I know what you're thinking,
You and I have much to say,
And you've been making me crazy,
Trying to understand
But it's impossible at your age.

I know I said I'll always try,
But you're going to bed alone again tonight,
And you lie there in the dark and wonder why.

I did it for you, and the boys,
Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
There's only one thing,
You can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And that's the real thing you need in love.

You're so afraid your life is over,
And nothing I can say can change your mind.
How can anybody be so selfish,
And treat you all so cruel,
The woman screamed at me and cried.
I'll always hold you in my soul,
And I'm never going to leave you all alone
But your daddy doesn't live here anymore.

I did it for you, and the boys,
Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
There's only one thing,
That you can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And that's the real thing you need in love.

Everybody's got a boat upon the ocean,
Not everybody's sailing out to sea,
And is there someone there for me?
I'm ready to believe.

I did it for you, and the boys,
Because love should teach you joy,
And not the imitation,
That your momma and daddy tried to show you.
I did it for you, and for me,
And because I still believe,
There's only one thing,
That you can never give up,
Never compromise on,
And that's the real thing you need in love.

I have always loved this song and the words. It give me goose bumps when I actually read the words!

Thanks!

This goes out to all the girls who missed their daddy's while growing up. Hope you've found comfort in your hearts.

I got separated this past June and my daughter's name is Amanda. I hope and pray that my children find the love my wife and I didnt have. I cant express how I feel when I hear this song.

Some of these lyrics are wrong. It's not "The woman screamed at me and cried." It's "Go on and scream at me and cry." Just fyi..

I got separated almost a year ago and my two children live with me for which I've been bleased, however my boy is only 6 and all he knows is that mommy is working and that's why she can't live with us.

Everytime I watch him sleep (just like he is right now) I can't help crying in silence
And today for The first time in my life I listened this beautiful song thanks Mr. Loggins, God bless you all who wrote The comments above because it inspired me to write this comment.
