Album: Whitesnake 1987 (1987)
Charted: 9 2
  • I should have known better
    Than to let you go alone
    It's times like these
    I can't make it on my own
    Wasted days, and sleepless nights
    An' I can't wait to see you again

    I find I spend my rime
    Waiting on your call
    How can I tell you, babe
    My back's against the wall
    I need you by my side
    To tell me it's alright
    'Cause I don't think I can take anymore

    Is this love that I'm feeling
    Is this the love that I've been searching for
    Is this love or am I dreaming
    This must be love
    'Cause it's really go a hold on me
    A hold on me

    I can't stop the feeling
    I've been this way before
    But, with you I've found the key
    To open any door
    I can feel my love for you
    Growing stronger day by day
    An' I can't wait too see you again
    So I can hold you in my arms


    Is this love that I'm feeling
    Is this the love that I've been searching for
    Is this love or am I dreaming
    This must be love
    'Cause it's really got a hold on me
    A hold on me

    Is this love that I'm feeling
    Is this the love that I've been searching for

  • Shery Jones from St Louis MoAlong with David Coverdale and John Sykes who are the other three musicians in this song
  • Laurent from Manama, BahrainThe band was not breaking up as stated in the comments above. Coverdale actually fired them! The band was on hiatus due to Coverdale's health problem. They were given green light to get involved in other projects until he gets better. Neil Murray, for instance, got together with Japanse band Vow Wow. He and Anynsley Dunbar actually had to hire lawyers to get their share of the money yielded by the album. John Kalodner wanted to change the line-up because he wanted to sell a more americanized looking band to the US market. That's how Sykes (who actually Kalodner wanted to stay but his tense relationship to Coverdale made it impossible for him to stay), Neil Murray and Aynsley Dunbar were let go. In came Rudy Sarzo (who spent his entire career copying other bass players's lines), Adrian Vandenberg (who could not get one emotional song our of his guitar even if his life depended on it), Vivian Campbell (no comment) and the great Tommy Aldridge to shoot the video and tour the album. NONE of them played on this song or the album (with the exception of Vandenberg who recorded the lame solo on "Here I Go Again" and Campbell who re-recorded the solo for the single version of "Give Me All Your Love").
  • Danny from Your Town, IaYeah, check out her mug shot. Just google it. It's from when she beat Chuck Finley with her high heels, which actually coming from her sounds kind of kinky! Anyway, time has been rough on her. I remember beingin high school and hating this song since MTV played it every 20 minutes. Now I look back and it was a good song. Kind of gets me in the mood :)
  • Mark from Kitakyushu,Tawny assaulted that Chuck Finley with her high heels while he was driving. He was a pitcher for the Angels.
  • Cristina from Long Beach, Cavery good song i love it its cool and something you can sing along with
  • Nicola from London, EnglandThis song is a real tear-jerking, and touching song. This song is great to listen to, and it's a very powerful ballad.
  • Rjh from Marquette, MiI like this song, but it's too classic and too many things are said over and over again. At least it has some cool sounding verses and it makes it alright.
  • Stratis from Brighton, EnglandJohn Sykes wrote and performed the solo for this song afterr he was fired! He didn't want someone else to take credit for his exceptional work throughout the whole "1987" album.
  • Amy from St. Peters, MoTawny doesn't look so good anymore. She was in the latest season of the Surreal Life and she looked pretty rough.
  • Sophia from London, EnglandThis video makes me smile because i cant stop laughing a coverdales poodle perm!!!
  • Pete from Nowra, AustraliaTawny was also in Batchelor Party with Tom Hanks
  • Kurt from Downers Grove, IlCoverdale's future wife, Tawny Kitaen, is featured in the videos for this and Here I Go Again. Damn she's fine.
