If You Asked Me To

If You Asked Me To is the closing song written and originally released as the lead single for Patti LaBelle's seventh solo studio album, entitled Be Yourself, and for the James Bond motion picture Licence to Kill. The song is a ballad written by critically acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren. The lyrics are from the point of view of a woman who pleads to her significant other. Despite being a Top 10 hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, the song did not crossover to the pop charts until Céline Dion covered it three years later. The song is featured during the end credits of the film.

Lyrics

Used to be that I believed in something,
Used to be that I believe in love,
It's been a long time since I've had that feeling,
I could love someone,
I could trust someone,
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again, darlin',
I said I'd never let nobody in.

But if you asked me to,
I just might change my mind,
And let you in my life, forever,
If you asked me to,
I just might give my heart,
And stay here in your arms forever,
If you asked me to,
If you asked me to.

Somehow ever since I've been around you,
Can't go back to being on my own,
Can't help feeling, darlin', since I've found you,
That I've found my home,
That I'm finally home,
I said I'd never let nobody get too close to me, darlin',
I said I needed, needed to be free.

(But if you asked me to . . . )

Ask me to, I will give my world to you baby I need you now,
Ask me to, I'll do anything for you baby,
For you baby.

If you asked me to,
I'd let you in my life forever,
If you asked me to . . .
