I WANT TO BE IN LOVE
Melissa Etheridge


I have climbed the highest mountain

I have sailed across the sea

I have wrestled with my demons

And woke up with only me

I have been around the block

Three times maybe four

And I think I deserve just a little more



In front of total strangers won't you kiss me

Flowers for no reason but you miss me

Oh I want to be in love

You're standing on the doorstep in the rain

Cause you couldn't wait to see me once again

Oh I want to be in love



I have made some big mistakes

And I've paid a heavy price

I found a little peace between will and sacrifice

I have watched as all my dreams

Went walking out the door

And I think I deserve just a little more



I'm looking for a heart of gold

I'm looking for a hand to hold

A happy end

Strong and kind

Somewhere to rest my troubled mind



In front of total strangers won't you kiss me

Flowers for no reason but you miss me

Oh I want to be in love

On Tuesday light the candles bring me wine

Wednesday morning I won't get to work on time

Oh I want to be in love

Surprise me as I'm stepping off the plane

Take my hand as they play our song again

Oh I want to be in love
