"Addicted To Love" is a single by Robert Palmer, released from the album Riptide by Island Records in January 1986.

The single features Andy Taylor.

About the song Edit

Originally intended to be a duet with Chaka Khan, the song was made without her because her record company at the time would not grant her a release to work on Palmer's label, Island Records. Chaka Khan, however, is still credited for the vocal arrangements in the album liner notes.

Andy Taylor (bandmate of Palmer's from The Power Station) provides lead guitar. The other guitar part on the song is played by Eddie Martinez and keyboards by Wally Badarou.

Bernard Edwards produced the track, who also produced The Power Station album that Palmer and Andy Taylor were both members of in 1985.

The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as spending two weeks at the top of the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart, and it peaked at #5 on the UK Singles Chart.

LyricsEdit

Your lights are on, but you're not home

Your mind is not your own

Your heart sweats, your body shakes

Another kiss is what it takes



You can't sleep, you can't eat

There's no doubt, you're in deep

Your throat is tight, you can't breathe

Another kiss is all you need



Ohh oohh

you like to think that you're immune to the stuff

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough

you know you're gonna have to face it

you're addicted to love



You see the signs, but you can't read

You're runnin' at a different speed

You heart beats in double time

Another kiss and you'll be mine, a one track mind



You can't be saved

Oblivion is all you crave

If there's some left for you

You don't mind if you do



Ohh oohh

You like to think that you're immune to the stuff

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough,

you know you're gonna have to face it

you're addicted to love



Might as well face it, you're addicted to love(5x)





Your lights are on, but you're not home

Your will is not your own

You're heart sweats and teeth grind

Another kiss and you'll be mine



Ohh oohh

you like to think that you're immune to the stuff

It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough

you know you're gonna have to face it

you're addicted to love



Might as well face it, you're addicted to love(5x)
