  • need your sweet inspiration
    I need you here on my mind
    Every hour of the day
    Without your sweet inspiration
    The lonely hours of the night
    Just don't go my way

    A woman in love
    Needs sweet inspiration
    Yeah, and honey that's all I ask,
    That's all I ask from you
    I've gotta have your sweet inspiration
    You know there just ain't no tellin'
    What a satisfied woman might do

    The way you call me baby, baby
    Is such a sweet inspiration
    The way you call me darlin', darlin'
    Sets my heart to skating
    And if I'm out in the rain, baby
    And in a bad situation
    You know I just reach back in my mind
    And there I find your sweet, sweet inspiration

    Sweet inspiration
    Oh what a power
    And I've got the power
    Every hour of the day
    I need your sweet inspiration
    To go on, to go on living
    To keep on giving this way

    I need your sweet inspiration
    Sweet inspiration, sweet inspiration, sweet inspiration
    Sweet, sweet inspiration
    Sweet, sweet inspiration
    I need, sweet inspiration Writer/s: DAN PENN, SPOONER OLDHAM
