  • Moving forwards, using all my breath
    Making love to you was never second best
    I saw the world thrashing all around your face
    Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
    There's nothing you and I won't do
    I'll stop the world and melt with you

    (You should know better)
    Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
    (You should see why)
    Trapped in the state of imaginary grace
    (You should know better)
    I made a pilgrimage to save this humans race
    (You should see why)
    Never comprehending the race had long gone by

    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    (Let's stop the world)
    You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
    (Let's stop the world)
    There's nothing you and I won't do
    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you

    The future's open wide

    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    (Let's stop the world)
    I've seen some changes but it's getting better all the time
    (Let's stop the world)
    There's nothing you and I won't do
    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you

    The future's open wide
    Hmmm hmmm hmmm
    Hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm
    Hmmm hmmm hmmm
    Hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm

    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    (Let's stop the world)
    You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
    (Let's stop the world)
    There's nothing you and I won't do
    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you
    (Let's stop the world)
    I'll stop the world and melt with you Writer/s: Gary Frances McDowell, Michael Frances Conroy, Richard Ian Brown, Robert James Grey, Stephen James Walker

  • Julie Burns from MoThis song reminds me of someone I will always love. Can't think of a better way to end my life than making love to him and melting into each other, literally. We have already figuratively melted into each other!
  • Carolyn from Rochester, NyThis is my husband and my song. He will call me if he hears it on the radio. We have been together 31 years.
  • Habner from FlyovercountryTrue: we had this song in our wedding. What a lovely thought... I want to be with you when our world melts.
  • Kenny from Princeton, NjCould never understand why this wasn't a MUCH bigger hit.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhYum. This is a delicious song. Very sensual.
  • Adam from York, PaAt the time of the burger king commercials, there was a conflict of interest, because one of the members of the band, I think it was the lead drummer, was a vegan. But then they got the money and quickly forgot about the conflict. Oh and I think it was vh1, some channel anyway, put this in the top 100 one-hit-wonders of the eighties, along with Our house by madness, that one song by don johnson, dear god by xtc, and several other 80s songs that REFUSE TO DIE.
  • Larry from Wayne, PaThis song was played at pretty much every party when I was in college. Along with "Rock This Town" by Stray Cats, "Dancing With Myself" by Billy Idol, and "What I Like About You" by The Romantics.
  • Erika from West Band, WiLove it! :)
  • Carrie from Roanoke, VaGreat song. A cover fo it was also featured in a recent Hershey's commercial.
  • Mike from Matawan, NjCan't help but like this song. I'll own that....it's a guilty pleasure.
  • Robert from Zanesville, Ohloved it down to the last hum!
  • Michaela from Usa, NyThis song is so sweet and smooth, love it! -_-
  • John from Kirkland, WaI head mentioned (I think it was in the Special Edition interviews of Valley Girl) that this song was about a couple at the moment of a nuke bomb being set off.
  • Michael from San Diego, Ca"Moving forward, using all my breath, making love to you was never second best!"

    Sweet love song in it's own way, and an early 80's classic!
  • Skyttles from Poolpartytopia, Czech RepublicI LOVE THIS SONG!!! My dad would sing it to me when i was younger...brings tears to my eyes sometimes
  • Chet from Buffalo, NyThe actual title of this song is "I Melt With You"
