"If You Want My Love" as written by and Rick Nielsen....
Ah
Ah

[Chorus:]
If you want my love you got it
When you need my love you got it
I won't hide it
I won't throw your love away, ooh

[Chorus]

Yes, I thought you were a mystery girl
A special girl in this crazy old world
You couldn't see me when I laid eyes on you

'Cause lonely is only a place
You don't know what it's like
You can't fight it
It's a hole in my heart, in my heart

[Chorus]

You hold the secrets of love in this world
I'm hypnotized by your every word
A special face, a special voice
A special smile in my life

'Cause lonely is only a place
You don't know what it's like
You can't fight it
It's a hole in my heart, in my heart

[Chorus x3]

    General CommentI fell in love with this song years ago. They used to play it on MTV all the time. I can listen to it over and over again. Love it

    General CommentI have to agree with sunny mushroom and wonder why it is not more popular. They played this song at the end of the movie Joe Dirt and I thought it was such a great way to finish the movie.

    General CommentPhenomenal song by the great Cheap Trick.

    I particularly dig the way Cheap Trick incorporate the middle-eight chord progression from The Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" directly into the middle-eight of this song. Very cool (cheap) trick. They also tip their hats to The Beatles with the "oooooh" harmonies.

    In addition to being a great song in its own right, its also a great, sly tribute to The mighty Beatles.
