Dear Foreigner,

I'm going to be publishing a book. It's all small time but the book will be on sale for money. I would like to print these lyrics from your song "I Want to know what love is" before one of the chapters:

"In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far, to change this lonely life
I want to know what love is, I want you to show me"

I want to be respectful to you and was wondering the cost for reprinting your lyrics.  Is this irritating/disrespectful from an artist's stand point ? You would receive credit in book.

The book is fictional and not in bad taste at all. It's not objectionable, racist, ugly.

Thank you
