Locked In Your Love

Listen to the song

Recorded by: The Pleasure Seekers
Written by: J. Ross/M. Schuman

“LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE” WAS THE FINAL SONG RECORDED IN 1968, WITH MERCURY RECORDS, AND NEVER RELEASED. WRITTEN BY GRAMMY WINNERS, JERRY ROSS AND MORT SHUMAN, THIS TUNE WAS MUCH MORE IN THE STYLE OF THE PLEASURE SEEKERS, AND WOULD HAVE BEEN PREFERRED AS THEIR SINGLE RELEASE. INSTEAD, THE LABEL WENT WITH THE OTHER TWO TUNES RECORDED AT THE 1968 SESSIONS, “GOOD KIND OF HURT”, AND “LIGHT OF LOVE”. THE SONG FAVORED SUZI ON VOCALS, IN THE FUNKIER STYLE OF THE PLEASURE SEEKERS.

Lyrics

I LOVE YOU BABY, YES I DO BOY, YOU REALLY MOVE ME
YOU TURN ME ON NOW, ALL RIGHT, AND THEN YOU LOSE ME
YOU ONLY WANT ME WHEN YOU NEEDED SOMEONE
I ONLY PLEASE YOU WHEN THE PLEASIN’S ON YOU
I DON’T WANNA LIVE IN YOUR LIGHT,
BUT EVERYTIME THAT YOU HOLD ME, I’M HELPLESS
YOU REALLY GOT ME LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE,
BOY YOU KNOW YA GOT ME LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE

I WANT YA BABY, YES I DO BOY TO BE MY LOVER
NO JUST FOR ONE DAY, OH NO BUT ALL THE OTHERS
AND WHEN YOU WHISPER I’M YOUR ONE AND ONLY
I KNOW YOU’RE GONNA BREAK MY HEART AGAIN
OH, I DON’T WANNA LIVE IN YOUR LIGHT,
BUT EVERYTIME THAT YOU HOLD ME, I’M HELPLESS
YOU REALLY GOT ME LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE,
BOY YOU KNOW YA GOT ME LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE

NOW DON’T YOU WANT ME FOR MORE THAN A PLAYTHING,
CAN’T HELP BUT FEEL THAT I’M A DAY TO DAY THING
I DON’T WANNA LIVE IN YOUR LIGHT,
BUT EVERYTIME THAT YOU HOLD ME, I’M HELPLESS
YOU REALLY GOT ME LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE,
BOY YOU KNOW YA GOT ME LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE,
SOCK IT TO ME ONE TIME—-NA NA NA YA GOT ME
LOCKED IN YOUR LOVE
