May this fire in my soul, dear
Forever burn

Pleasant memories are comin' back to me (ahh)
Can't you remember the way it used to be?

You tell me that you really need me
That I'm your only love
Always thinkin' about me
You're true as the stars above

Everyone had gone (ba-da-da-da-da)
We stayed on and on (ba-da-da-da-da)
Vowin' to be lovers

'Cause you're my lovin' baby
You belong to me
That's the way it was meant to be

In the morning
And nighttime too
I can't seem to get my mind off you

Now, love makes me
Makes me feel so good
Just like I, I dreamed it would
And I'm still glad that, ah, I found you
'Cause our love is a gas and I know it'll last

The first time we touched
I was floatin' on air
I knew I was in heaven
Though I never been there

I got up so tight I couldn't unwind
I saw so much I broke my mind

Why was he holding her hand
When he's supposed to be mine?

I mean, the kind of woman make a fool of you
She make a young man groan and an old man pain
The way she took my money was a cryin' shame

When you come across a guy who thinks he's boss
Yet never knows the reason why
He won't let you pass, won't answer things you ask
He's got his orders, do or die

When you put your arms around me
I get a feeling that's so hard to bear

Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes
I asked her for this dance
And then she obliged me

Some friends go bowling every Saturday night
Some sit around and watch the T.V. fight
But all I want to do is hold you tight

I don't care what they say
I'm gonna keep it anyway
I won't let them stretch their necks

You'll be mine in the morning
Oh and be mine again in the night
We'll always, I mean always, be together
Because our love, yes our love will be right

Do you remember when we met?
That's the day I knew you were my pet

You lend your heart
You never give
I guess I should have known
These teardrops fallin' from my eyes
Are interest on a loan

Open up, I wanna come in again
I thought you were my friend

You make my heart go giddyup
You are as sweet as candy
You're my sugar dandy

I keep hearin' you're concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you're givin' me is conscience, I guess
If I were walkin' in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none

Oh brother Jack, you goin' with sister Sadie
When you ought to be at home with your old lady
But your heart is divided in so many pieces
Tryin' to please them both
Never pleasin' neither
Oh Jack, take it on back

Then my baby called me again
And she said, come a little bit c-closer now
Closer to me, please honey baby, honey pie, honey doll
Oh I began sh-sh-shaking like a leaf on a tree

When you wear your bell bottom pants
I just stand there in a trance
I can't move, you're in the groove
Would you believe, little girl, that I am crazy 'bout you
Now go on now with your bad self


You know, I hate to see the sun
Hurry to the west
'Cause I know my whole night
Will be in a solid mess

Wrap your life
In the palm of your heart
Stay distant
Or they'll tear your life apart
