Like a Lover Would


words and music by Rick Paul

I wanna hold you
Like a lover would
I wanna kiss your lips
Like a lover should
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna be your man
I wanna hold you
Like a lover would

I wanna please you
In every way
I wanna tease you
Every night and day
Though I know it ain’t right
To be here in your arms tonight
I wanna hold you
Like a lover would

I know that you and I
Will never add up on paper
But my heart ain’t paper
It pumps real blood
And, baby, you’re just a baby
When it comes to love
But I…
I can’t resist your touch

I wanna hold you
Like a lover would
I wanna kiss your lips
Like only a lover should
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna be your man
I wanna hold you
Like a lover would

I wanna hold you
Like a lover would
