Adrian Belew – Standing In The Shadow lyrics

How could you look so cool
And make me feel so hot
How could you start me up
And never let me stop
And when you touched my hand
And when you plugged me in
I said "you turn me on"
But you forgot to turn me off

Standing in the shadow of your love
So hot, I'm burnin' up
Standing in the shadow of your love

And when you look in my eyes
And you make me feel blind
How could you be so good
And make me want you so bad
And when you touch my hand
And when you plug me in
And then you call my name
I forget who I am

Standing in the shadow of your love
So hot, I'm burning up
