  • She always takes it with a heart of stone
    'Cause all she does is throw it back to me
    I've spend a lifetime
    Looking for someone
    Don't try to understand me
    Just simply do the
    Things I say

    Love is a feeling
    Give it when I want it
    'Cause I'm on fire
    Quench my desire
    Give it when I want it
    Talk to me woman
    Give in to me
    Give in to me

    You always knew just how to make me cry
    And never did I ask you questions why
    It seems you get your kicks from hurting me
    Don't try to understand me
    Because your words just aren't enough

    Love is a feeling
    Quench my desire
    Give it when I want it
    Takin' me higher
    Love is a woman
    I don't want to hear it
    Give in to me
    Give in to me

    You and your friends
    Were laughing at me in town
    But it's okay
    And it's okay
    You won't be laughing girl
    When I'm not around
    I'll be okay
    And I'll, I'll not find
    Gotta, the peace of mind no

    Don't try to tell me
    Because your words
    Just aren't enough

    Love is a feeling
    Quench my desire
    Give it when I want it
    Takin' me higher
    Talk to me woman
    Love is a feeling
    Give in to me
    Give in to me
    Give in to me

    Love is the feeling
    I don't want to hear it
    Quench my desire
    Takin' me higher
    Tell it to the preacher
    Satisfy the feeling
    Give in to me
    Give in to me

    I don't want to
    I don't want to
    I don't want to
    Hear it
    Give it to the fire
    Talk to me woman
    Quench my desire
    I don't like a lady
    Talk to me baby
    Give in to me

    Give in to the fire
    Give in to me
    Give in to me
    Give in to me

    Love is a woman
    Give in to me
    Give in to me
    Give in to me
    Give in to me

    'Cause I'm on fire
    Talk to me woman
    Quench my desire
    Give it to the feeling Writer/s: Bill Bottrell, Michael Joe Jackson

  • Delano from HartfordI read something MJ said in his book about The Album Dangerous, its not about being in a relationship. MJ wants a relationship and is telling that from his perspective of wanting love
  • Chi Girl from NigeriaTalk to me woman - not like a lady!
  • Emma from Christchurch, New ZealandMore like the most hetero man in existence :)
  • Emma from Christchurch, New ZealandHow people can think he was homosexual, asexual or a pedophile after listening to this song is beyond me. It is quite simply the sexiest song ever written and MJ wouldn't have to ask me twice ;)
  • Shauna from Atlatna, GaThis is one of MJ's sexiest songs.
