It's hard to be
It's hard for me to keep arm's length from my baby
Can't you see, when I'm away from her it sho' nuff drives me crazy
Something inside of me, when she's gone I miss her so
I wanna tell her how I feel, just gotta let her know
When I'm alone with her, and she's in my arms I'm in heaven

It's all I see, in my dreams, we'll be happy together
Side by side, I hope that our love will stay this way forever
Something inside of me, got a feelin' that won't let go
I wanna tell her how I feel, I just gotta let her know
Lookin' through her eyes, I see a paradise, no mistake she's full of fire

Like a real live wire, a house on fire
She's my burnin', she's my burnin', burnin' desire
Well it's hard to be, it's hard for me to keep arm's length from my baby
Oh can't you see, when I'm away from her it sho' nuff drives me crazy
Something inside of me, when she's gone I miss her so
I wanna tell her how I feel, I just gotta let her know

When I'm alone with her, and she's in my arms I'm in heaven
Like a real live wire, a house on fire
She's my burnin', she's my burnin', burnin' desire
Hard to be, it's hard for me
It's hard to keep, keep me from my baby
