"Desire" as written by Lamont Herbert Dozier, Eddie Holland, Brian Holland, Troy Donald Jamerson, Alan Maman and Luroner Lethel Brooks....
Lover I'm off the street
Where the bright lights and the big city meet
With a red guitar on fire
Desire, desire

She's like a candle burning in my room
I'm like the needle, needle and spoon
Over the counter with a shotgun
Pretty soon, everybody got one
And the feelin' when I'm beside her
Desire, desire (yeah)

And the feelin' when I'm beside her
Desire, desire

Well she's the dollars for my protection
She's the promise in the year of election
I said sister can you let you go
I'm like a preacher stealing hearts at a traveling show
For the love or money, money
And the feelin' when I'm beside her
Desire, desire
Desire, desire
Desire, desire
Desire, desire
Desire, desire
