If This Is Love Lyrics

by Glen Campbell

The palpitating beast that beats within my battered breast
Burning and bedeviling, not allowing any rest
The thunder in my mind reflects the storm within my heart
A blasting, blaring sound that tears my soul apart

If this is love, who needs it?

There's a tender, tempting feeling that is growing in my mind
Soothing and caressing a part of me, that's blind
A warming worm that's mellowing and eating my resolve
Changing and challenging my cold heart to dissolve

If this is love, I want it

Now, a flaming, flaring fire I feel, has trapped me in it's trance
Flashing and flickering and forcing me to dance
I'm raised by its pure energy, aborning me anew
Blinding but enlightening, I know the fire is you

If this is love, ohh, I want it
If this is love, I want it
If this is what love is like, ohh, yes, I need it
Ohh, if this is what love is like, I wanna have a taste of it
