  • I've been hearing your heartbeat inside of me
    I keep your photo right beside my bed
    Livin' in a world of fantasies
    I can't get you out of my head

    I've been waiting for the phone to ring all night
    Why you want to make me feel so good
    I got a love of my own
    Shouldn't get so hung up on you

    I remember the way that we touched I wish I didn't like it so much
    I get so emotional, baby
    Every time I think of you
    I get so emotional, baby

    Ain't it shocking what love can do
    Ain't it shocking what love can do

    I gotta watch you walk in the room, baby
    I gotta watch you walk out
    I like the animal way you move
    And when you talk I just watch your mouth

    I remember the way that we touched I wish I didn't like it so much
    I get so emotional, baby
    Every time I think of you
    I get so emotional, baby

  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceHouston's '80s heyday produced several singles worthy of inclusion on best-of lists, but this one represents the best blend of danceable beats and an irrepressible chorus. Houston was and is a fine singer, but perhaps her best attribute was her ability to select top-notch material. This tune is a celebration of an '80s pluckiness we're not likely to see again, and it's so infectious that even a lot of rock fans were subject to its seduction.
