The palpitating beast that beats within my battered breast
Burning and bedevilling, not allowing any rest
The thunder in my mind reflects the storm within my heart
A blasting, blaring sound that tears my soul apart

If this is love ... who needs it?

There's a tender, tempting feeling that is growing in my mind
Soothing and caressing a part of me that's blind
A warming worm that's mellowing and eating my resolve
Changing and challenging my cold heart to dissolve

If this is love ... I want it!


Now a flaming, flaring fire I feel has trapped me in it's trance
Flashing and flickering and forcing me to dance
I'm raised by it's pure energy, aborning me anew
Blinding but enlightening, I know the fire is you

If this is love ... I need it
If this is love ... I want it
If this is what love is like ... oh yes, I need it
Oh if this is what love is like, I wanna have a taste of it
