Martha Reeves & The Vandellas — I'm Ready For Love lyrics

As I stand alone on this moonful night
For the first time I feel alone in life
As I watch the moon kiss the starlit sky
I feel the need for your lips to press close to mine
For so long, I've been afraid to love (Ready for love)
But right now (Ready for love) I feel the need for love (Ready for love)
And you, you have a love, a love I need, ooh to comfort me (And ready for love)

Ooh and I'm ready for love, I'm 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 (ready for love) I feel alone (ready for love)
Cause I need a love, ooh, to call my own
And only you, you have a love, a love I need, oh to comfort me
(Oh, you have)

Ooh 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)

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

Right now (just as soon) 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, your wonderful sweet, sweet love
Right now I'm ready for love
