Shai // If I Ever Fall In Love

Shai performing If I Ever Fall In Love. (C) 1993 Geffen Records

Shai is an American 1990s vocal R&B/soul quartet. Their biggest hit was "If I Ever Fall in Love," which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"If I Ever Fall in Love" was released as the first single from the debut album of the same title, and peaked at #2 in the U.S. The next two releases from the double-platinum album, "Comforter" and "Baby I'm Yours," each peaked #10. The group's next album release was Right Back At Cha, a remix album that largely consisted of new versions of their previous hits, with a couple of new songs as well. A completely reworked version of their previous hit "Baby I'm Yours," simply titled "Yours," was released as a single, and peaked at #63.

Shai returned in 1994 with "The Place Where You Belong," from the Beverly Hills Cop III soundtrack. It was the group's final Top 40 single. In late 1995, their follow-up album Blackface was released (#42 Pop, #15 R&B). It featured their final R&B Top 20 single "Come With Me" (#43 Pop). The group's last chart appearance was the follow-up single, 1996's #89 single "I Don't Wanna Be Alone" Remix, which featured Jay-Z and was inspired by the Belinda Carlisle's 1987 "Heaven Is a Place on Earth".

"If I Ever Fall in Love" is a song by American R&B-soul quartet Shai. The song reached number 2 in the US in 1992, and peaked at number two on the US R&B chart.[2] Its eight weeks at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, which was held off from the top slot due to the massive success of "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston, meant that it held the record for the second-most weeks at number two in the chart's history at the time, behind Foreigner's "Waiting for a Girl Like You". The record has since been equalled and surpassed, and "If I Ever Fall In Love" is now in joint ninth place with a number of more recent songs.

LYRICS

The very first time
That I saw your brown eyes
Your lips said hello and I said hi
I knew right then you were the one
But I was caught up
In physical attraction
But to my satisfaction
Baby you were more than just a face

And if I ever (ever fall) in love again (again)
I will be sure that the lady is a friend
And if I ever (ever fall) in love so true (true)
I will be sure that the lady's just like you

Oh, yeah, the very next time she'll be my friend

If I say that I will be your one and only
(promise, promise) Promise that you'll never leave me lonely
I just wanna be the one you need
Oh, baby
I just wanna be the one who serves you
Sometime I feel as if I don't deserve you
I cherish every moment that we share

And if I ever (ever fall) in love again (again)
I will be sure that the lady is a friend
And if I ever (ever fall) in love so true (true)
I will be sure that the lady's just like you

Very next time she will be my friend
Someone who I can believe in

I need someone who'll be my friend
(My friend)
To be with me through thick and thin
(My friend)
Please share my love with me my friend
I need someone like you
