I'm Ready For Love
Martha Reeves Lyrics


As I stand alone on this moonful night
for the first time I feel alone in life.
As I watched the moon kiss the starlit sky
I feel the need for your lips to press close to mine.
For so long I been afraid to love,
but right now I feel the need for love
and you, you have the love the love I need
to comfort me oo and I'm ready for love
truly ready for love your wonderful
sweet sweet love right now I'm ready for love.

I've tried to shield my heart from love's tender touch
'cause to lose in love would hurt so much;
but as I softly walk in my solitude
I searched my heart and found there's a need for you.
And for the first time I feel alone,
'cause I need a love to call my own;
and only you, you have the love the love I need
to comfort me oo and I'm ready for love
I'm truly ready for love you know I'm ready for love
your wonderful sweet sweet love
I'm ready right now I'm ready right now.

Something wonderful has come over me
and filled this heart of mine with ecstasy
I'm glad I finally opened up my eyes
and pushed the fear of love, the fear of love aside;
and for the first time I feel alive
I have the touch of love deep down inside.
And just as soon as I see your smiling face
I'll rush into your warm embrace.

Right now I'm ready for love,
I'm truly ready for love,
you wonderful sweet, sweet love
right now I'm ready for love

you know I'm ready for love,
I'm truly ready for love,
your wonderful sweet, sweet love
right now I'm ready for love

you know I'm ready for love,
I'm truly ready for love,
your wonderful sweet, sweet love
