Dusty Springfield – I Want Your Love Tonight lyrics

(Halley / Spencer)

Oh, love is like a flame, now
Upon a candle
Get it burnin' brightly
And it's a-too hot to handle
Oh, baby
(I want your love tonight)
Come on and satisfy me
Baby, don't deny me
(I want your love tonight)
Excuses, boy don't hand me
Just love and understand me

Oh, patiently I've waited
For your sweet kissin'
Though we steady-dated
You know, somethin's been a-missin', oh, oh
(I want your love tonight)
I don't want to sit here and talk
(I want your love tonight)
I don't want to go for a walk
(I want your love tonight)
Oh, take me up to heaven
All the way to cloud eleven

I want a-your love tonight
Oh, yeah I do
Come on and love me, baby
Oh, come on and satisfy me
Baby, don't deny me, yeah
(I want your love tonight)
Love me, love me, baby
(I want your love)
