When a cold chill begins to burn at your very soul 
That's the sweet touch of Love 
When just the drop of a name begins to sting your very toe 
That's the sweet touch of Love 
Just the thought about seeing you would blow my mind 
That's the sweet touch of Love 
I was about to give up but you came just in time 
With your sweet touch of Love 
 
You brought out the best in me,  
Made me leave the rest of me behind 
Oh yes you did 
You delivered me from lonelyness 
And onlyness ooh yes 
And Oh little girl I want...  
 
One little kiss to let me know girl 
That I couldn't live without your love, you know it's true 
I've found the joy that I had been missing for so long 
It was the sweet touch of Love 
 
When a cold chill begins to thrill your very soul 
That's the sweet touch of Love 
When just the drop of a name begins to sting your very toe 
That's the sweet touch of Love 
 
You know that there's nothing that's sweeter than you 
I got to have you early in the morning 
And when the icy wind a-blow from the north 
I don't need no clothes I don't need no coat 
 
I got you early in the morning 
I got you late in the afternoon 
I got you late in the evening too 
I got you 
 
When ever my love come's tumbling down 
And you know you got to be there 
You can use the rest of this world of mine 
And you know you got to be there 
When my love come's tumbling down 
And you know you got to be there 
When my love come's tumbling down 
And you know you got to be there
