  • I am not in love
    But I'm open to persuasion
    East or West
    Where's the best
    For romancing

    With a friend
    I can smile
    But with a lover
    I could hold my head back
    I could really laugh
    Really laugh

    Thank you
    You took me dancing
    'Cross the floor
    Cheek to cheek
    But with a lover
    I could really move
    Really move
    I could really dance
    Really dance
    Really dance
    Really dance
    I could really move
    Really move
    Really move
    Really move

    Now if I can feel the sun
    In my eyes
    And the rain on my face
    Why can't I
    Feel love

    I can really love
    Really love
    Really love
    Really love
    Really love
    Love love love love
    Love love love love

    Now I got all
    The friends that I want
    I may need more
    But I shall just stick to those
    That I have got
    With friends I still feel
    So insecure

    Little darling I believe you could
    Help me a lot
    Just take my hand
    And lead me where you will
    No conversation
    No wave goodnight
    Just make love
    With affection

    Sing me another love song
    But this time
    With a little dedication
    Sing it, sing it
    You know that's what I like
    Once more with feeling
    Give me love
    Give me love
    Give me love
    Love

    Make love
    With affection

    Sing me another love song
    But this time
    With a little dedication
    Sing it, sing it
    You know that's what I like
    Once more with feeling

    Sing me another love song
    But this time
    With a little dedication
    Sing it, sing it
    You know that's what I like

    With affection

    With a little dedication

    Once more with feeling

    You know that's what I like Writer/s: JOAN ANITA BARBARA ARMATRADING
