A tune about sweet, spontaneous lovemaking.


Hello sweet lady I think that I know you by name
I think that Ive seen you a-glowing just like you are now
So if I were to take a chance and ask you for a dance
Would you pretend that I know what Im doing
Cause Ive never done this thing before

It seems that its getting too crowded in this room for my taste
After all, yours is the only touch Im really interested in
I would love to see your face in a better lit place
Ill lead my hand to rest gently in your hand
If you lead us both to the door

Oh beautiful soul how natural it feels to be with you
All at once I surrender each notion I had about love
So if you don't mind Ill take my time
I have shed my disguise a new light in my eyes
Will appear when this short night is through

Now Im not religious but you look like some kind of angel
If there were a god shed be shining her light in our room
There is one thing I believe: expectations deceive
Hallelujah Ive found what Ive sought for
And she's nothing like Id ever dreamed

Oh beautiful soul how natural it feels to be with you
All at once Im surrounded by songs I had dared not to sing
My dear ladys face is my saving grace
I will be on my way but Im brand new today
And forever indebted to you
