"Turn Me On" as written by and John Loudermilk....
Like a flower waiting to bloom
Like a light bulb in a dark room
I'm just sittin' here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

Like the desert waiting for the rain
Like a school kid waiting for the spring
I'm just sittin' here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

My poor heart, it's been so dark
Since you've been gone
After all, you're the one who turns me off
But you're the only one who can turn me back on

My hi-fi is waiting for a new tune
My glass is waiting for some fresh ice cubes
I'm just sittin' here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on, turn me on

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites on her new album.. Only thing i don't like about it are the lines: "After all your the one who turns me off You're the only one who can turn me back on".. Seems kinda cheesy to me.

    But besides that. 'Tis great. :)
