Mathis, Johnny - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me Lyrics




Hold me, hold me
Never let me go
Until you've told me, told me
What I want to know
And just hold me, hold me
Make me tell you I'm in love with you
(Hold me tight, never let me go)
Thrill me, thrill me
Walk me down the lane where shadows will be, will be
Hiding lovers just the same as we'll be, we'll be
When you make me tell you I love you
(Will you take me in your arms)
They told me, "Be sensible with your new love
Don't be fooled thinking this is the last you'll find"
But they never stood in the dark with you, love
When you take me in your arms
and drive me slowly out of my mind
Kiss me, kiss me, and when you do
I know that you will miss me, miss me
If we ever say adieu, so kiss me, kiss me
Make me tell you I'm in love with you

    Incredible one of my top10 slow jams,no doubt

  2. Daniel Alva

    Gracias por todo Yulie

  3. Daniel Alva

    To Wong foo yulie

  4. wseabuck

    This version is the young Johnny version...he evidently did one in the 80's...nice but slower and older voice.

  5. Posma Henry

    Hold me, hold me
    And never let me go until you've told me, told me
    What I want to know and then just hold me, hold me
    Make me tell you I'm in love with you

    Thrill me (thrill me), thrill me (thrill me)
    Walk me down the lane where shadows
    Will be (will be) will be (will be)
    Hiding lovers just the same as we'll be, we'll be
    When you make me tell you I love you

    They told me "Be sensible with your new love"
    "Don't be fooled, thinking this is the last you'll find"
    But they never stood in the dark with you, love
    When you take me in your arms
    And drive me slowly out of my mind

    Kiss me (kiss me), kiss me (kiss me)
    And when you do, I'll know that you
    Will miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)
    If we ever say "Adieu", so kiss me, kiss me
    Make me tell you I'm in love with you

    kiss me
    When you do, I'll know that you will
    Miss me (miss me), miss me (miss me)
    If we ever say "Adieu" so kiss me, kiss me
    Make me tell you I'm in love with you

    Never, never, never let me go (Hold me, thrill me)
    never, never, never let me go (Hold me, thrill me)
    never, never, never let me go

  10. Jordan Green

    We were soldiers , brought me here

  11. Joyce Nierman

    JOHNNY MATHIS is one of the most magnificent and talented singers I have ever listened to and I might add that velvet ROMANTIC VOICE is a hard one to top however this song although excellently done was knocked out of the park by Mel Carter.
    But Johnny Mathis's songs very hard to top that magnificent voice !!!!!!

  12. Eileen chen

    Hold Me...Kiss me....♥️

  13. Eileen Chen

    I'm so in Love with you Babe ♥️

  14. Bruno Ottina

    In 78 I was a little boy and my mom let it play this song on saturday evening just after the dinner. So much memories on my mind.
    Even in France, Johnny was famous and appreciated about his voice and his style.

  15. Lala LeVej

    Well, pumpkins.... sometimes it just takes a fairy.... 💜

  16. Elaine Dwyer

    Gloria Estefan version is pretty damn good. Especially, if you want to dedicate it to the one you Love.

  36. Ashley Willett

    I'm 17 and Im in love with this song

    Dennis O'Connor

    Ashley, I'm 70 and I remember the first time I heard it on the radio. Who said there is a generation gap. Not when it comes to good music.

    Ivan LaGuer

    Bravo Ashley! Good music is timeless.

  37. Gaile Zimmer

    always perfection......

  38. Zachary Faller

    Thanks For Everything!

  39. ANITA SCHON

    OMG, so beautiful, Johnny as always makes the music his.

  40. Denise Robertson

    When Johnny was young with his magical voice there was not a better source of goose pimples on earth! Mel Carter's version was my mainstay as a young teenager. But Johnny gave him a run for his money here. Don't you agree?

    matteo2211

    yes Denise, I sense more emotional depth and more capability in Johnnys voice.

    Kathy Peach

    They were both excellent. I like Jonny’s phrasing better. It’s a little smoother but Mel did it well also.

  41. Franklin NJ

    Wow what a voice and orchestra accompanying him, in the late 60's and 70's we would watch variety tv shows with this type of music every week.

    Hold me, hold me
    Never let me go
    Until you've told me, told me
    What I want to know
    And just hold me, hold me
    Make me tell you I'm in love with you
    (Hold me tight, never let me go)
    Thrill me, thrill me
    Walk me down the lane where shadows will be, will be
    Hiding lovers just the same as we'll be, we'll be
    When you make me tell you I love you
    (Will you take me in your arms)
    They told me, "Be sensible with your new love
    Don't be fooled thinking this is the last you'll find"
    But they never stood in the dark with you, love
    When you take me in your arms
    and drive me slowly out of my mind
    Kiss me, kiss me, and when you do
    I know that you will miss me, miss me
    If we ever say adieu, so kiss me, kiss me
    Make me tell you I'm in love with you

  43. Ruchel Kersner

    great rendition of one of my favorite songs of the that year.

    Dennis O'Connor

    +Ruchel Kersner I still remember standing in the dark with my first Love back then. when will they invent time travel, I want to be back there again

  44. david forster

    I was 16 when i heard this song for the first time and head over heals in love with Debbie Morino. Her kisses used to set me on fire. We would listen to this song and make out sometimes until 4 or 5 in the morning when her father would have to get up to go to work. we'd duck out until he was gone, then spend half the day making out on her couch. This song brings back such fond memories of a special time in my life. Debbie, I wonder where you are now and if you had a great life. Thank you for loving me the way you did. Because of you I became a great kisser and learned how to give hickies. You'll always have a special pace in my heart. After all these years, I still love you.
    As far as I am concerned Johnny is the only person who can sing this with any heart in it.

  45. Pocahontas

    Nice!!!!!!

  46. Sharon Swann

    I adore this, so romantic. ❤ I am living in the wrong era 😕

    Patricia Rodriguez

    I am too, you are not alone. Love this son with Ben Carter too.

    Patricia Rodriguez

    Sorry, Mel Carter.

  47. MrCosmo314

    No no no. Mel Carter only can do this

    J Vernon

    No, lots of good versions of this lovely song, and all good in their own way.

  48. Norris Hohn

    so beautiful

  49. Daniel Dhesmos de Aquino

    yes love

  50. 123Anewor

    Mel Carter surely owned this song and sang it with so much more passion and conviction esp. uttering the song title... Dreamy! Nevertheless, Mr. Mathis' rendition is not bad at all but I just can't deny that Mel Carter's is certain the best version ever!

  51. hazelssister

    Both JONNY AND FREDDIE MERCURY HAVE THE BEST VOICES FOR POP SONGS

  52. Sinclair Yvonne

    I am searching for Johnny's song with these lyrics...one of my favs. " sitting by the fireside high on the white wine, the rhythm of the rain keeping time to the rhythm of your body lying next to mine saying Baby won't you like to do it one more time"

  53. Yulissa Cross

    To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar...! :-)

    Ezequiel Chanuar

    +Yulissacross yep :D

    Kathy Peach

    Yulissa Cross yes!

  54. Debbie Hutchinson

  55. Debbie Hutchinson

    mam loves Johnny

  56. Debbie Hutchinson

    makes met

  57. GTPrincess123

    this is a damn good remake... imo mel's is better but this competes very well

    Rafael Storm

    In the music business, it's called "a cover". Remakes are for movies.

  58. Shane Copeland

    To me the #1 version of this beautiful piece of music! Johnny does it best! What a great love song!

    Really Honest

    @Shane Copeland Sigh....

    Dennis O'Connor

    Shane, this brings back so many memories. Gave all the ladies goose-bumps in my arms. Definitely #1.

  59. Fernando Arellano

    Love slow melow music is like stories

  60. Hadassah Santos

    Hold me, Thrill me, Kiss me <3

    philmor1776

    +Ester Santos , OK, you convinced me. Now we just have to decide where to meet. LOL

  61. Hadassah Santos

    Isso sim .. Faz bem aos ouvidos ... amo demais essa musica..

  62. Atomank68

    What, this is Johnny?  Extraordinary!  A very unusual, and amazing range of voice range for him.  When was this recorded?

  63. Michael Jander

    A beautiful, uplifting song. loved by many fans and artists alike. The fact that it has been covered by so many top artists over so many years is a tribute to its timeless appeal and has meant that we fans and music lovers have enjoyed repeated opportunities to rekindle memories each time yet another version has hit the charts. Each cover has brought out another nuance, much like each reading of a great poem does. Great in its simple honesty and truthfulness. I note that in the 123 comments to date, even those that are critical only go so far as to say that they prefer other cover versions - not a single hater or troll statement (I hope I haven't unwittingly invited them by my statement!) - which I see as yet another tribute to Johnny Mathis as a person.Thanks for sharing your efforts and reminding us of good times and a positive, genuine, enduring and much loved artist.

  64. Jamie Mitchell

    sweet tune

    Rick Boney

    Zev Feldman q

  68. Darrel Johnson

    One of the best versions of this song was sung by a C&W singer by the name of Jim Ed Brown. He wasn't nearly as nasal.

  69. Reginald Thornton

    this is a classic of the 1950's

  70. Jan Jacobsen

    fantastic 

  71. LM Butler

    Breathtaking!

    i know Joni James sang this about 1952-53---but i can't find it

  82. Eddie Mayes

    "Too Wong Foo...." brought me here!! "sometimes all it takes is a fairy"

  83. Rickstar 2000

    lot of good singers have sung this song but mel had more heart

  84. Connie Yelp

    This song was written by Harry Noble in 1952. Mel Carter recorded it back in 1965 and gave it a place in history. I read that his recording sold over a million copies and was awarded a gold disc. The original version was released by Karen Chandler in 1952 and was her only hit. I liked this the first time I heard Mel sing it, it was a hit in the 1950's as well as the '60's. It was recorded by many artists over the years, Connie Francis, Gloria Estefan, and of course our Johnny.

  85. doc2skate

    Great, great song. I like Mel Carter's version just a little better, but Johnny Music's version comes very, very close.

  86. holdingcheriot

    I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH WOW. SUCH A CLASSIC. HAD 2 FIND THIS SONG ON TOO WONG FOO. LOL

    @TopazDupree Wow! Never knew it dated back to 1952!

  92. Chris Mulwee

    Never heard this version before. But it's great. Most stations only play the original(?) by Mel Carter. Both are great on their own terms.
