The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is Touch/Feel.

Eddie Levert is known for more than his sixty-plus year career with the legendary R&B group, The O’Jays.  He’s also known for his talented sons, Gerald and Sean, two of the three-member R&B/New Jack Swing group, Levert, popular in the 80s.

After seven studio albums and songs like the top five pop hit, Casanova, Gerald embarked on a solo career in 1991. He enjoyed much success with hits like I’d Give Anything (To Fall in Love) and the R&B chart-topping duet with his father, Baby Hold On To Me.

But it was on his 2001 album, Gerald’s World, that the single Made To Love You appeared. It didn’t receive a wide release, but still stands the test of time as an anthem for holding steadfast to your relationship, especially through the bad times.

FUN FACTS

    • Gerald wrote and produced songs for other artists such as Patti LaBelle, Barry White, Stephanie Mills, Anita Baker, Teddy Pendergrass, James Ingram, Freddie Jackson, The Rude Boys, and New Edition.
    • In 1997, Levert teamed up again with fellow singers Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill, to form the supergroup, LSG. The trio released the album Levert-Sweat-Gill the same year, selling over two million copies.
    • On November 10, 2006, Gerald Levert was found dead in his bed at his Cleveland, Ohio home when his cousin tried to wake him. Initial reports stated that Levert had died of an apparent heart attack. In February 2007, an autopsy report conducted by the Cuyahoga County coroner’s office concluded that Levert’s death was caused by a fatal combination of prescription narcotics and over-the-counter drugs. He was 40 years old.

Made to Love You

by Gerald Levert

Songwriters: Edward Berkeley / Harold Lilly Jr / Harold Spencer Jr Lilly

I recall when we first met, a long time ago
How could I forget they way I felt
When I first laid eyes on you
I remember saying to my friends
There is my future wife and then
I took the step to need
Someone who would change my life
It had to be my destiny
‘Cause I was made to love you
My hands, to touch you
My arms, to hold ya, my legs to stand
My time, to spend with ya forever
I was made, made to love ya
My lips to kiss ya
My eyes to see you, my legs to stand
My time, to spend with you forever
My life, together I was made
Made to love you
Made to love you
I remember out first date
Our first arguments
Our very first breakup
And makeup that got us to this moment
And every girlfriend and every one night stand
Every heartbreak and every heartache led me to you
It brought me to and made me better
Better, sooner for you
It had to be my destiny
I was made to love ya
My hands, to touch ya
My arms, to hold ya
My legs, to stand
My time, to spend with you forever
I was made, made to love you
My lips, to kiss you
My eyes, to see you, my legs to stand
My time, to spend with you forever
My life, together
I was made, made to love you
Made to love you
Made to love you
My hands, to touch ya
My arms, to hold ya
My legs, to stand
My time, to spend with ya forever
I was made, made to love you
My lips to kiss ya
My eyes to see you my legs to stand
My time, to spend with you forever
My life, together
I was made, made to love you
It had to be my destiny
I was made to love you
My hands to touch ya
My arms to hold ya
My legs to stand
My time to spend with you forever
I was made, made to love you
My lips to kiss ya
My eyes to see you
My legs to stand
My time to spend
With you forever
My life together
I was made, made to love you
Made to love you
My hands to touch ya
My arms to hold ya
My legs to stand
My time to spend with you forever
I was made, made to love you
My lips to kiss ya
My eyes to see you
My legs to stand
My time to spend
With you forever
My life together
I was made, made to love you
Made to love you
My hands to touch ya
My arms to hold ya
My legs to stand
And my time to spend with you forever
I was made, made to love you
