Song updated, review now!
Don't do that
Baby, please don't do that
What are you cryin' for ?
Is it because you're sad, or mad
Or nothing's gonna go wrong ?

Sometimes we feel inside of us that
That everythin' we have is, only here for today
But every now and then two people get lucky
And find that certain thing that makes them wanna
Just keep it, just keep it that way

I don't want you to feel that
That you have to go through
These changes when
Knowin' no way

I know that, our love is different
Our lives will be different
Trust me baby, trust me

Now, that I'm here, no more tears
Come here, come here
And you won't find, things
That broke your heart
And blew your mind
Not here, no, not here

And my, oh, my
Girl, can't you see, can't you see that I
I've got so much to give to you, my dear
It's gonna take a lifetime, it's gonna take years

To you my dear I've got so much to give
It's gonna take my lifetime
It's gonna take years and years
And years and years

And I'll fill you in your hopes and dreams
Believe me, girl, you got everything
Right here, right here
No one could offer you more
Than the love I have for you in store
It's here, oh, oh, yeah

And my, oh, my
Honey, can't you see, can't you see that I
I've got so much to give to you my dear
It's gonna take a lifetime, it's gonna take years

To you my dear I've got so much to give
It's gonna take my lifetime
It's gonna take years and years
And years and years

Believe me, baby
We've found that certain thing
That certain feeling
That lets two people
Express themselves, how they feel
Let your love flow inside of you
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, baby

About"I've Got So Much to Give" is an R&B contemporary romantic ballad composed and recorded by popular soul artist Barry White and released in 1973. It was originally conceived by White as a single but then featured on the album of the same name (released in 1973), that peaked at number one on the Hot R&B Albums Chart. The song peaked at number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and charted for 11 weeks. It also reached number five on the US Billboard R&B chart. White composed and arranged both the instrumentals and vocals.

The song begins with a brief instrumental solo performed by The Love Unlimited Orchestra, the instrumentals are repeated while White speaks romantic words to his apparent love interest, this style is also used in his version of "Just the Way You Are" and Barry's other contemporary ballads. White then begins the song's first verse, after completing his vocals he repeats the title as a chorus. The song then ends with an extended instrumental set consisting of a flute, drums, violin, a bass guitar, and White's own piano playing as White continues to speak romantic words and later improvising vocals towards the end of the song. I've Got So Much To Give ends with a fade similar to traditional ballads of the same type.

The romantic lyrics used in the song helped craft White's sexual persona, and the unusual orchestral combination of instruments in an R&B song influenced the disco sound along with White's other mainly instrumental songs. I've Got So Much To Give was heavily acclaimed by Allmusic who felt it was obvious why the album reached the top of the R&B charts, despite the fact I've Got So Much To Give followed a formula similar to White's past songs they stated "the novelty of White's approach, coupled with the universality of his subject matter, ensured that there was no sense of having heard it all before." In a play written by Mark Frank (included in the book A Collection of Plays Written by Mark Frank), one of the main protagonist transforms himself into Barry White and performs the song. The song is often used in romantic novels and films.
