  • I've been meaning to tell you
    I've got this feelin' that won't subside
    I look at you and I fantasize
    You're mine and tonight
    Now I've got you in my sights

    With these hungry eyes
    One look at you and I can't disguise
    I've got hungry eyes
    I feel the magic between you and I

    I want to hold you so hear me out
    I want to show you what love's all about
    Darling tonight
    Now I've got you in my sights

    With these hungry eyes
    One look at you and I can't disguise
    I've got hungry eyes
    I feel the magic between you and I

    With these hungry eyes
    Now I've got you in my sights
    With these hungry eyes
    Now did I take you by surprise
    I need you to see
    This love was meant to be

    I've got hungry eyes
    One look at you and I can't disguise
    I've got hungry eyes
    I feel the magic between you and I

    I've got hungry eyes
    Now I've got you in my sights
    With the hungry eyes
    Now did I take you by surprise?
    With my hungry eyes
    With my hungry eyes
    Now I've got you in my sights
