Quotations

I feel the need to be naked with you. Take off my pants, my shirt, my socks and my shoes. I need to be naked with you.

"The Need to Be Naked", from Naked (2002).

Your hair shines like gold, says my child. You are pretty old, says my child. And I think to myself how I used to be. There's another wrinkle that I see. Then he takes my hand and smiles at me.

"The Smile of My Child", Naked (2002).

You entered my aura and fell into my arms. I just wrapped around you like a snake that's been charmed.

"You Move Me", My Kind of World (2004).

It's the way that you kiss, the way that you give back, The way you love me like this -- look at the beauty of that. These are the tangled words of our love, that we both do untie -- Same old ways, same old spice, same old paradise.

"Same Old Paradise", My Kind of World (2004).

Ooh, little boy, in between changing fathers. Little girl has to live without Mother. They don't understand why they seem not to need them, Although all they need is a loving hand.

"More Time for a Child" (written by Amber's sister, Anne-Fleur Cremers), My Kind of World (2004). Category:Living people Category:Musicians
