Lyrics to the song Slave To Love as recorded by Bryan Ferry.

Words & Music By Bryan Ferry

Tell her I'll be waiting
The usual place
With the tired and weary
And there's no escape
To need a woman
You've got to know
How the strong get weak
And the rich get poor

Slave to love, oh oh, slave to love

You're running with me
Don't touch the ground
We're restless hearted
Not the chained and bound
The sky is burning
A sea of flame
Though your world is changing
I will be the same

Slave to love, oh oh, slave to love
Slave to love, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah, slave to love
(No I can't escape) I'm a slave to love
Can you help me?, oh
Can you help me, me, me?

The storm is breaking
Or so it seems
We're too young to reason
Too grown up to dream
Now spring is turning
Your face to mine
I can hear your laughter
I can see your smile

Slave to love, nah nah nah nah oh oh nah nah nah nah, slave to love
Slave to love, nah nah nah nah, slave to love
(No I can't escape) I'm a slave to love
Slave to love, nah nah nah nah oh oh nah nah nah nah, slave to love
(No I can't escape) I'm a slave to love
Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, slave to love
(No I can't escape) I'm a slave to love
Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, slave to love
(No I can't escape) I'm a slave to love
Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah, slave to love
(No I can't escape) I'm a slave to love
