about

Picture a smokey blues club. You're sitting in that corner booth, snuggled up with your special someone, with ceiling fans whirling overhead. Over the noise of the crowd you hear the drums and feel the bass. A distorted electric guitar cries alongside some steamy, jazzy piano, with a smoky organ filling in the spaces between. The whiskey-tinged voice of the singer alternately teases and pleads, "I wanna hold you like a lover would." Yeah, it's sort of like that.

lyrics

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
