Love And Affection
Joan Armatrading Lyrics


I am not in love
But I'm open to persuasion
East or West
Where's the best
For romancing

With a friend
I can smile
But with a lover
I could hold my head back
I could really laugh
Really laugh

Thank you
You took me dancing
'Cross the floor
Cheek to cheek
But with a lover
I could really move
Really move
I could really dance
Really dance
Really dance
Really dance
I could really move
Really move
Really move
Really move

Now if I can feel the sun
In my eyes
And the rain on my face
Why can't I
Feel love

I can really love
Really love
Really love
Really love
Really love
Love love love love
Love love love love

Now I got all
The friends that I want
I may need more
But I shall just stick to those
That I have got
With friends I still feel
So insecure

Little darling I believe you could
Help me a lot
Just take my hand
And lead me where you will
No conversation
No wave goodnight
Just make love
With affection

Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like
Once more with feeling
Give me love
Give me love
Give me love
Love

Make love
With affection

Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like
Once more with feeling

Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like

With affection

With a little dedication

Once more with feeling

You know that's what I like

Goddesses for sure but have you ever checked out this Righteous Babe; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=111KaJeRhNY ?
There's a truth that goes way beyond just the words they sing. It's a spiritual truth I think, a truth that is becoming harder and harder to find in music these days as artistic integrity is more often than not overruled by commercial interests. We just have to wait



& sometimes there's some poetry
if you turn your back long enough
and let it happen naturally

I was maybe ten when this song came out and I could feel it then. This is the first time in years I've heard this song and it still gives me goosebumps, but now I gno why...

"Sing me another love song
But this time
With a little dedication
Sing it, sing it
You know that's what I like
Once more with feeling
Give me love
Give me love
Give me love
Love"

Thanks for posting. YES Love.

Me too.

What's funny to me, now, and also so sweet, is that I first heard Joan Armatrading from guy friends. (I'm female.)

I was the oldest in my family, but most of my friends happened to be the youngest in their families. We spent a lot of time sitting in basements, getting high... Ha ha... Like so many did. But my friends had a frikken ARSENAL of music from their older siblings.

Most of the best music I ever learned was like that. I still appreciate that those guys recognized great music and shared it. Men, women, soft or loud... just GOOD.

Appreciation.

Criminally underrated artist in my opinion. This tune is right up there with the best ever written.

I was fortunate to see this beautiful lady (In every sense) at Cardiff's St David's Hall.

Blessings to you Joan.
This song is definitely in my top ten.

Sadly, I feel this woman never really got the recognition she absolutely deserved!
