Verse 2: (Power chords)
I've been waiting for you,      It's been so long.
I knew just what I would do,  when I heard your song.

You filled my heart with your bliss,    you gave me freedom.
You knew I could not resist,      I needed someone.
And now we're flyin' through the stars    I hope this night lasts forever...
       Huh,    Huh,    Huh,   Hu-h...

Verse 3: (Power Chords)
I wait for night time to come,  to bring you  to me.
I can't bel-ieve I'm the one;    I was so     lone-ly.
I feel like no one could feel;   I must be    dream-ing.
I want this dream to be real.    I need this  feel-ing.
I make my   wish upon a star  and  hope this  night will last forever…
       Huh,    Huh,    Huh,   Hu-h...

Ain't nobody, (nobody!) loves me better,
makes me happy, makes me feel this way.
Ain't nobody, (nobody babe...) loves me better (nobody makes me feel..)
Ain't nobody, loves me better (than

|Em  D/E | D D/B |Am7                  |D
|        | and a | love  so  deep  we  |cannot measure!

Ain't nobody (nobody!),    loves me better (that .. can make me feel this way.)
Makes me happy,    makes me feel this way
Ain't nobody (ain't nobody) ,    loves me better (nobody)
Ain't nobody,    loves me better (nobody baby..)
Ain't nobody, (nobody baby..)   loves me better

(Repeat and fade out)

Some fill-ins sung by Chaka Kahn during the last Choruses before fade out:
(Aaah (you) make me feel just like your love, (is) so much love,
(I) can't look up,  feel the bonk of love ... now I know .. another bite ..
makes me want to scream and shout ... whoa .. nobody)


A Note on Lyrics:

Chorus parts were sung by background singers. Parts sung by Chaka Kahn during Chorus are 
listed in (parentheses).

A Note on Chords:

(1) You can use "Bm7" (B minor Seven) instead of "D/B", wich means "D major using a "B" 
instead of a "D" as lowest note.
(2) In the VERSES: If you prefer to (to some of you, it might sound better), you can 
also use plain "D" major chords instead of "D/C" and "D/E".
I play those chords around the seventh fret. There, those base notes sound OK to me.
(3) "B7sus4" means a B suspended chord with an additional seventh
and a fourth ("E") note instead of the third. The notes (1-5-7-4') are (B-F#-a-e).
"Cmaj7" means a plain C major chord with an addtional major seventh ("B") note.
"Em" and "Am" mean "E minor" and "A minor" chords.

I'd like to thank the guy who posted the previous "intermediate" chords and lyrics 
version for providing me with a basis to work on.
Basically I did not entirely agree with the chords and changed some of the phrasing in 
the lyrics
to match with what I heard on the 1984 Rufus and Chaka Kahn recording.
I hope some folks think it was worthwhile enhancing it.

I'd also like to credit the author of a set of scores I read, which were quite OK for 
playing a related interpretation of the song on piano,
but of impossible format if you just needed a lead sheet with chords: The scores are 
written on seven subsequent pages and the position
of the chord symbols are not in sync with actual chord changes required in the song.
The lyrics in those scores are do not match what heard on the recording, hhich I took as 
a refence.
Those scores are by Warner Chapell Music Ltd, London (copyright Overdue Music, USA 1983)
