Stephanie Mills - Rising Desire Lyrics




Mmm...mmm...

Rising desire
Fire of the heart
Rising desire
Felt it from the start

Rising desire
Fire of the heart
Rising desire
Tears my life apart

Why do I feel this way
About you in my life
You weren't here for me
When I asked to have you near
Now things have turned around
You want to be with me
I'm tried to fight your love
But it so agrees with me

Rising desire
Fire of the heart
Rising desire
Felt it from the start

How can it be your eyes
So deep inside of me
Strange magnetism
In your personality

It's getting scary how
Your presence shakes my life
I lose all self-control
When I'm with you through the night

To hold you in my arms
Is more than I can bear
But looking in your eyes
I don't know if you care

Rising desire
Fire of the heart (Fire of the heart)
Rising desire
Felt it from the start (I felt it)

Rising desire
Fire of the heart (Fire of the heart)
Rising desire (Ooh...ooh...)
Tears my life apart

Yet still you haunt my dreams
As strange as it may seem

Love and desire
Burning deep within me
And you are the answer to my needs
But it seems like there's always something between us
And it tears me apart
More and more as the days go by
Ho...baby

Rising desire
(I'm rising, I'm rising)
Rising desire
Felt it from the start (Oh...baby)

Rising desire
(I can't stand it, don't want it)
Rising desire
Tears my life apart (Oh...oh...oh...baby)

Rising desire
(I can't stand it and I can't come back)
Rising desire
(Oh...oh...oh...)

Rising, mmm
Oh, I can't fight it
Ooh...ooh...ooh...
I don't wanna fight it
Oh...oh...
Rising, oh, baby
It's in your eyes
It's in your arms, ooh
It's in your walk, baby
Ey...hey...hoo...
It's in your eyes, yeah
It's in your walk, baby
It's in your arms, yeah
Ho...baby

Rising desire
Fire of the heart (Oh, oh, oh, baby)
Rising desire (Oh...)
Felt it from the start (It's in your eyes)

Rising desire
(It's in your walk, baby, it's in your arms)
Rising desire (Oh...oh...ho...)
Tears my life apart (It's in your walk, baby)

Rising desire
(It's in your arms, ooh, ooh)
Rising desire (Oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...oh...)
Felt it from the start (Baby)

Rising desire

    Kelli Elaine. I heard that.

  11. DJ V- ANTHONI

    oh, I finally found this self titled cd and I thought something was off but I didn't know what until I came here and notice the album cover on this screen is different from the one I have. I guess when they finally released it on cd they didn't use the original album cover picture. The cd is her in a 80's ripped blue top and I thought about the "Stand Back" video so it didn't click wth me that the cover was different

    Asia Wells

    We're is that song if you want my love you have to tell me so what the name of it

  12. DJ V- ANTHONI

    Even though at this point they stop using real instruments as much and started going into the electronic age, this song STILL had a soulful mood feeling to it. I so love this song. If Stephanie would've done a video for this I just know it would've very warm and inviting.

    I saw Stephanie when she was out on tour promoting this album (Atlantic Starr opened the show) and was really upset that she didn't perform Rising Desire as it was just released as a single. Is there any footage of her performing this song live that you could upload? That would be awesome!!
