Manhattan Transfer – The Thought Of Loving You lyrics

The thought of loving you
The way I'm longing to
A thousand hopeful dreams I have
Are finally coming true
I used to put you on a pedestal
Where you became untouchable
But now we touch and now so much is possible

Just being near to you (So near to you)
Would be enough for me (For me)
The many years without your love have been so tough on me
But now a change has taken place in me
I found someone whose faith in me
Has given me the strength I need so desperately

Oh in my darkness you turn on the light
My illusions vanish overnight
The thought of loving you is now reality
The thousand dreams I have I'll know in the end how it could be
For as we melt in love so beautiful
I never felt so wonderful
The thought of loving you the way I'm loving you right now

(Background voices)
In the darkness you turn on the light
My illusions vanish overnight
In the darkness...
(repeat to fade)
