  • When I get home, babe, gonna light your fire
    All day I've been thinkin' about you, babe
    You're my one desire

    Gonna wrap my arms around you
    Hold you close to me
    Oh, babe I want to taste your lips
    I want to fill your fantasy, yeah

    I don't what I'd do without you, babe
    Don't know where I'd be
    You're not just another lover
    No, you're everything to me

    Ev'rytime I'm with you, baby
    I can't believe it's true
    When you're layin' in my arms
    'n' you do the things you do

    You can see it in my eyes
    I can feel it in your touch
    You don't have to say a thing
    Just let me show how much
    I love you, need you, oh babe

    I want to kiss you all over
    And over again
    I want to kiss you all over
    Till the night closes in
    Till the night closes in

    No one else can ever make me
    Feel the way you do
    Oh, so keep on loving me baby
    And I'll keep loving you
    Well it's easy to see
    When something's right or something's wrong
    So stay with me baby and hold me all night long

    Show me, show me everything you do
    'Cause baby no one does it quite like you
    I love you, need you, oh babe

    I wanna kiss you all over
    And over again
    I wanna kiss you all over
    Till the night closes in
    Till the night closes in

    Stay with me, lay with me
    Holding me, loving me, baby
    Here with me, near with me
    Feeling you close to me, baby

    Show me, show me everything you do
    'Cause baby no one does it quite like you
    Love you, need you, oh yea

    I wanna kiss you all over
    And over again
    I wanna kiss you all over
    Till the night closes in
    Till the night closes in

    Till the night closes in
    Wanna kiss you all over
    Till the night closes in
    Till the night closes in

    When I get home, baby
    Gonna light your fire Writer/s: Michael Donald Chapman, Nicholas Barry Chinn

  • Sharon from Boston, MaI remember when DJ Charles Laquidara of legendary rock station WBCN-FM played this song on his morning show "The Big Mattress" and claimed that he got complaints from angry conservative listeners on how "dirty and suggestive" the song was. So to (allegedly) mollify his critics he played a "clean" version with the word "kiss" bleeped out everywhere it appeared in the song, which of course had the hilariously opposite effect.
  • Lance from Crescent Spring, KyThank you! I was always told that this song was recorded at my deceased father's recording studio and I haven't been able to find much info about it. This is the most info I have found.
  • Susan from Atlanta, GeorgiaI'm an adult onset fan of this song. I remember when it came out new not being terribly impressed with it, but I heard it again a few years ago and loved it. Now it's among my favorites.
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandExile did the original version of Heart And Soul, later a hit for Huey Lewis & The News...
