Natalie Cole – Like A Lover lyrics

Like a lover, the morning sun slowly rises and kisses you awake
Your smile is soft and drowsy as you let it play upon your face
Oh how I dream I might be like the morning sun to you
Like a lover the river wind,

Oh how I dream I might be like the river wind to you
Sighs and ripples it's fingers through your hair
Upon your cheek it lingers, never have I known a sweeter place
Oh how I envy a cup that knows your lips

Let it be me, my love
And a table that feels your fingertips
Bring an end to the endless days and nights without you

Let it be me, let me be your love
Like a lover the velvet moon shares your pillow and watches while you sleep
It's light arrives on tiptoe gently taking you in it's embrace
Oh how I dream I might be like the velvet moon to you

Como um radio de sol (Like the sunshine)
A brincar com seui rosto (Playing upon your face)

Let it be me, let me be your love
My love and a table that feels your fingertips
Oh how I envy a cup that knows your lips let it be me
Bring an end to the endless days and nights without you

Like a lover the velvet moon shares you pillow and watches while you sleep
Oh how I dream I might be like the velvet moon to you

It's light arrives on tiptoe gently taking you in it's embrace
I might be like the velvet moon to you


Como um radio de sol (Like the sunshine)

A brincar com seui rosto (Playing upon your face)
I might be like the velvet moon to you

I might be like the velvet moon to you
Como um radio de sol (Like the sunshine)

I might be like the velvet moon wanna be like the velvet moon

I might be like the velvet moon to you
