Lover, when I`m near you, and I hear you, speak my name
Softly, in my ear you, breathe a flame

Lover, when we`re dancing, keep on glancing, in my eyes
Till loves own entrancing, music dies

All of my future is in you
Your every plan I design
Promise you`ll always continue
To be mine

Lover, please be tender, when you`re tender, fears depart
Lover, I surrender, to my heart

(instrumental bridge)
Lover, it`s immoral, but why quarrel, with our bliss
When, two lips of coral, want to kiss

I say the devil is in you, and to resist you, I try
But if you didn`t continue, I would die

Lover, please be tender, when you`re tender, fears depart
Lover, I surrender, to my heart
