Keep My Lovelight Burnin’

“Keep My Lovelight Burnin’” was written by Evie Sands and Ben Weissman and is included on Evie’s 1979 album “Suspended Animation” and released it as a single but failed to chart with it. Sands did an all-out disco recording of the song while Karen Carpenter took the song and added heavy electric guitar and a funk styled bass line turning it into a scorching rocker similar to Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff.”

Lyrics
Keep My Lovelight Burnin’

Every night’s the same
Come home feelin’ down
After you’ve been out
Chasin’ all over town
Do you think that I’ll sit around while you play
If you don’t feed the fire there ain’t no flame
Party lights, empty nights won’t keep my lovelight burin’
I need your body heat next to me
To keep my lovelight burin’
You’ve got to keep my lovelight burnin’ yeah

Used to be we’re out makin’ love in the rain
Come on to me like a hurricane
Now it seems our love isn’t getting’ enough
Baby it much to weak to fill my cup

Party lights, empty nights won’t keep my lovelight burin’
I need your body heat next to me
To keep my lovelight burin’

Party lights, empty nights won’t keep my lovelight burin’
I need your body heat next to me
To keep my lovelight burin’ yeah
keep my lovelight burnin’ yeah
You’ve got to keep my lovelight burnin’

Party lights, empty nights won’t keep my lovelight burin’
I need your body heat next to me
To keep my lovelight burin’ yeah
You’ve got to keep my lovelight burnin’
You’ve got to keep my lovelight burnin’
