I was born to love you

An amazing feeling coming through
I was born to love you
With every single beat of my heart
Yes, I was born to take care of you
Every single day of my life

You are the one for me, I am the man for you
You were made for me, you're my ecstasy
If I was given every opportunity I'd kill for your Love
So take a chance with me, let me romance with you
I'm caught in a dream, and my dream's come true
(It's) so hard to believe this is happening to me
An amazing feeling coming through

I was born to love you
With every single beat of my heart, yes
I was born to take care of you
Every single day of my life

I wanna love you, I love every little thing about you
I wanna love you, love you, love you
Born to love you, born to love you, yes I was born to Love you
Born to love you, born to love you every single day of my life
I was born to take care of you every single day of my life

I was born to love you
With every single beat of my heart
Yeah, I was born to take care of you, honey
Every single day of my life

This is the CD I listen to the most actually but I could change tomorrow....
Apple music

Dhafer Youssef is a Tunisian living in Paris.
His music is nourished by Sufi traditions, Arabic lyricism, multicultural influences and instrumentation from jazz and improvisation.
VERY good recording.


among the comments : "I love how hyped dhafer is while tigran kills it on the piano, while they all kill it. what an incredible jam at the end. just amazing"...

These old Chesky recordings are pretty great. Not available on streaming that I've seen (although you can't search by label), but I have a few on my music server:
