HAVE YOU EVER? by Brandy

Listen to this song and fill in the gaps with the missing verbs:

"Have You Ever?"

Have you ever ……………………….. somebody so much
It makes you cry
Have you ever …………………….. something so bad
You can't sleep at night
Have you ever ………………………….. to find the words
But they don't come out right
Have you ever, have you ever

Have you ever ……………………….. in love
Been in love so bad
You'd do anything to make them understand
Have you ever …………………… someone steal your heart away
You'd give anything to make them feel the same
Have you ever …………………….. for words to get you in their heart
But you don't know what to say
And you don't know where to start

Have you ever…………………. the one
You've ……………….. of all of your life
You'd do just about anything to look into their eyes
Have you finally ……………………………the one you've ................... your heart to
Only to find that one won't give their heart to you
Have you ever ………………………..your eyes and
Dreamed that they were there
And all you can do is wait for the day when they will care

What do I gotta do to get you in my arms baby
What do I gotta say to get to your heart
To make you understand how I need you next to me
Gotta get you in my world
'Cuz baby I can't sleep
