1, 2, 3, 4…
By the fire on my lips
Hot candle wax drips
I perspire
Late Afternoon Desire
Though you’re so pretty
I feel sad for all the chances I’ve had
To lend you my fire
Late Afternoon Desire
When I take you home tonight,
If I could, I’d tell you I love you
Please be patient ‘cause it’s my first time,
But baby, I promise I’ll try to
Say the words so I can make you mine
And tell the whole damn world all about you
It’s been far too long for me to wait
Left out in the rain
Hanging on a wire
Late Afternoon Desire
I see you try to lead me in
With that ravishing grin
And your eyes of sapphire
Late Afternoon Desire
When I take you home tonight
If I could, I’d tell you I love you. Please be patient ‘cause it’s my first time
But baby, I promise I’ll try to
Say the words so I can make you mine
And tell the whole damn world all about you
By the fire, I squeeze your hips
As you’re biting my lip
I’m your lover for hire
Late Afternoon Desire
On my back, you have me pinned
As you kiss me again
And it takes me higher
Late Afternoon Desire
Now that I’ve got you home tonight
I’m sure you know that I love you
It’s a shame we’ve wasted all this time
But baby, I’m glad what we’ve been through
If I am yours, I will make you mine
And tell the whole damn world that I found you.
