“Her voice wasn’t warmed up, but she recorded almost 90 percent of the song that day. That’s unusual, says Narada Michael Walden, who credits the fresh performance to the fact that Whitney recorded it in one session.”

Producer: Narada Michael Walden for Perfection Light Productions

Lyrics

I’ve been hearing your heartbeat inside of me
I keepp your photo right beside my bed
Livin’ in a world of fanticies
I can’t get you out of my head

I’ve been waiting for the phone to ring all night
Why you want to make me feel so good
I got a love of my own
Shouldn’t get so hung up on you

I remember the way that we touched I wish I didn’t like it so much
I get so emotional, baby
Every time I think of you
I get so emotional, baby
Ain’t it shocking what love can do
Ain’t it shocking what love can do

I gotta watch you walk in the room, baby
I gotta watch you walk out
I like the animal way you move
And when you talk I just watch your mouth

I remember the way that we touched I wish I didn’t like it so much
I get so emotional, baby
Every time I think of you
I get so emotional, baby
Ain’t it shocking what love can do
Ain’t it shocking what love can do
