Love's Got A Hold On Me



I got a light shining over me,
I thought this could never be,
It's so amazing what I feel,
'Cos love - love's got a hold on me;

Up in the air walking down the street,
Smile like a fool at everyone I meet,
I wake in the night, I just can't sleep,
'Cos love - love's got a hold on me;

Too many heartaches, too many tears,
Too many women, too many years,
But I've got me a girl, who takes me high,
All the way to heaven day and night;

Love is a dance with a different beat,
And I can't stop my dancing feet,
I'm as high as I can be,
'Cos love - love's got a hold on me;

Too many heartaches, too many tears,
Too many women, too many years,
But I've got me a girl, who takes me high,
All the way to heaven day and night;

Love's got a hold, a hold on me,
Love's got a hold, a hold on me,
Love's got a hold, a hold on me;

I said love - love's got a hold - love's got a hold -
Love's got a hold on me.
"This is like an r 'n b song that Albert and I came up with. It's just great fun. It's quite fast, and it's about a guy who's just totally in love. It goes 'I'm up in the air, walking down the street, smile like a fool at everyone I meet. Wake in the night, I just can't sleep because love, love's got a hold on me. Too many heartaches, too many tears, too many women, too many years - but I've got a girl that takes me high, all the way to heaven, day and night.' The guy is thrilled about being in love, and it's great fun, this track."
