In 2005, a piano-driven arrangement of the song was played live twice, featuring Brian Bell on lead vocals.

Lyrics

Album version

Open the door and let your love come down
Over the wall you're spinning 'round and 'round
'Cuz you wanted some love
I'll make it happen

'Cuz I don't want to break
Your fine face I can't take
The way you wanna wrap me up inside your smile

Open your heart and let the good stuff out
Water me girl and let me ease the drought
'Cuz you wanted some love
I'll make it happen

I can't be gone, darling
For very long, no
Never know what you're gonna do
Standing there deep in front of you
Take a look in between my eyes
Because I'm back, yeah

Gimme a chance if you can force yourself
Look at me girl and get up off your shelf
'Cuz you wanted some love
I'll make it happen

Alternate lyrics, "Green Album" leak

I can't be gone, darling
For very long, no
Never know what you're gonna do
Standing there in the ocean blue
Take a look deep within my eyes
Because I'm back, yeah
