Love Songs

Love Songs

What can one say that has not already been said a million times about love? There are probably more love songs than any other genre of popular music. Whether about a broken love, an undying love, a mistaken love, a forbidden love the list is endless. Why is this? I believe that love is what we all as humans crave and experience in one form or another.

Our collection here, embraces just a few of the emotions that lovers might feel, and I won’t at this point highlight any particular song. Just give them a listen. I love them all, but then I’m biased.

A Drop In The Ocean

(Bancroft/Johnson)

A DROP IN THE OCEAN
The tide will turn, ebb and flow
Shells will be worn into grains of sand
Don’t let me drift, help me to know
Keep me afloat with a word of warmth.

A DROP IN THE OCEAN
MAY MEAN A LOT YOU SEE
TO SAY SOMETHING REAL TO ME.

White horse to ride, sea to spray
Into the air and then cast away
Ghosts from the past, haunting the shore
Try not to think of what went before.

A DROP IN THE OCEAN
MAY MEAN A LOT YOU SEE
SO PLEASE, SAY SOMETHING REAL TO ME.

So shall we leave on the crest of a wave
Not to be all washed up on the sand
Don’t let me drift, help me to know
Keep me afloat with a word of warmth

A DROP IN THE OCEAN
MAY MEAN A LOT YOU SEE
SO SAY SOMETHING REAL TO ME
A DROP IN THE OCEAN
MAY MEAN A LOT YOU SEE
SO SAY  –  WHY DON’T YOU SAY – SOMETHING REAL TO ME

So shall we leave on the crest of a wave
So shall we leave on the crest of a wave
So shall we leave on the………shall we leave on the……….
shall we leave…………

From My Window

(Bancroft/Johnson)

 

FROM MY WINDOW

From my window I see you smiling,
Far away and out of reach
In my window sun’s rays are streaming
Le ciel de Besancon.

Through my window warm breeze is drifting
Cloches et claxons sonnent l’heure
From my window I see you smiling
Far away and out of reach.

Flying over Dover
Long to be in London
Smile into my wine glass
When we meet in the bar.
It’s so good to be back
Having been so far.

From my window ∼ ∼ ∼

 

Going For A Song

(Bancroft/Johnson)

GOING FOR A SONG
Love is going for a song
Perhaps it won’t last long
There is no guarantee
That it will mean the same to me
LOVE IS GOING FOR A SONG.

It’s a bargain price today
A deposit’s all you’ll pay
Will you sign now on the line
This may be the only time
LOVE IS GOING FOR A SONG.

Bridge One:
You were taken for a ride
Now you’re broken up inside
The words you heard were wrong
And the tune play along.

NOW YOU’RE GOING …. GOING FOR A SONG.

Guitar Solo:-

You can take it home today
But then soon you’ll have to pay
Yes the price of love is dear
You’ll be bound to shed a tear.
YOU’LL BE GOING  FOR A SONG.

You won’t hear the same refrain
If you walk this way again
The words they will have changed
And the notes be out of range
THEY’RE GOING …. GOING FOR A SONG.

Bridge Two:
The song it has no name
And the chorus stays the same
The words you hear are wrong
And the tune won’t play along.

ARE YOU GOING? ….. GOING FOR THIS SONG?…….
ARE YOU GOING?………………..

I’ll see you again when I come home

(J Johnson)

I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN WHEN I COME HOME

I don’t know how to tell you child
I’ve been running ’round playing wild
And you’ve been waiting for such a long long time
I’m sure you always knew I’d come home to you.

CHORUS:-
I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN
AND I’ll MAKE IT UP TO YOU – WHEN I COME HOME.

I can’t wait even a little while
To touch your soft golden hair see your sweet sweet smile
But most of all I miss your warmth at night
I need to lie close to you hold you so so tight.

CHORUS:-
I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN
AND I’ll MAKE IT UP TO YOU – WHEN I COME HOME.

Bridge:-
I’ll find a better way of loving you
I’ll find another way to say I care
And I’ll be there and yes I’ll share
Then you’ll know I love you.

Now you know I’m still in love with you
I’m comin’ home coz I’m missing you
And most of all I miss your warmth at night
I’m gonna lie close to you so you can hold me tight.

CHORUS & CODA:-

I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN
AND I’LL I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN AND I’LL MAKE IT UP TO YOU
YES I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN WHEN I COME HOME
WHEN I COME HOME
WHEN I COME HOME
YEAH YEAH WHEN I COME HOME
WHEN I COME HOME.

I’m only missing you

(F Johnson/J Johnson)

I’M ONLY MISSING YOU

It started out a grey day
Phone rang I heard your voice
Suddenly the sun came out
And it was first of May day – Hey Hey Day.

CHORUS:-

WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHEER ME
BUT I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
COZ YOU’RE ONLY TIME AWAY
AND I KNOW THAT YOU HEAR ME

Feeling like I might cry
I talked with you, you made me smile
’til I was feeling oh so good
And it was fourth of July – My Oh My.

CHORUS:-

WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME
COZ I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
OH I’M ONLY MISSING YOU
I’VE GOT SO MUCH TO SAY
AND I KNOW THAT YOU HEAR ME.
Bridge:
Everybody needs someone to tell their troubles to
Seems no matter where I am I have to talk to you.

CHORUS:-

WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHEER ME
WHEN YOU@RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME
WHEN YOU’RE SO FAR BUT SO NEAR ME
YOU CAN ALWAYS HEAR ME. (Fade)

Let’s say au’revoir and not adieu

(F Johnson/J Johnson)

LET’S SAY AUR’VOIR AND NOT ADIEU

We have had such perfect times
And I don’t wanna face the end
But though you say you have to go
Remember I’m still your friend
If it don’t work out right
Don’t let pride stand in your way
I’ll be waiting here for you
Darling what more can I say?

CHORUS:-

LET’S SAY AUR’REVOIR AND NOT ADIEU
YOUR FACE BELIES THE WORD YOU SAY
IT HURTS SO MUCH MY LOSING YOU
NOW YOUR HEART OF GOLD HAS TURNED TO BLUE
THOUGH IT HURTS US BOTH TO BE APART
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN IT FROM THE START
LET’S SAY AUR’REVOIR AND NOT ADIEU.

If I had to let you go
I’d still love you just the same
Let me hold you one more time
’til I see you again.

CHORUS:-

LET’S SAY AUR’REVOIR AND NOT ADIEU
YOUR FACE BELIES THE WORD YOU SAY
IT HURTS SO MUCH MY LOSING YOU
NOW YOUR HEART OF GOLD HAS TURNED TO BLUE
THOUGH IT HURTS US BOTH TO BE APART
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN IT FROM THE START
LET’S SAY AUR’REVOIR AND NOT ADIEU.

Instrumental Refrain:

Bridge:
I didn’t mean to let you down
But I didn’t know the score
Coz I don’t understand
What it is you’re looking for.

CHORUS:-

LET’S SAY AUR’REVOIR AND NOT ADIEU
YOUR FACE BELIES THE WORD YOU SAY
IT HURTS SO MUCH MY LOSING YOU
NOW YOUR HEART OF GOLD HAS TURNED TO BLUE
THOUGH IT HURTS US BOTH TO BE APART
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN IT FROM THE START
LET’S SAY AUR’REVOIR AND NOT ADIEU.

Perfect Dancer

(Hunt/Johnson)

PERFECT DANCER
We caress to the sound of a love song
In a world where nothing ever goes wrong,
Common sense didn’t make it to first base
Here in your arms the right time the right place.

CHORUS:-
AND THE BELL NEVER SOUNDS THE PHONE NEVER RINGS
I’VE GIVEN UP EVERYTHING
WHEN THE QUESTION IS ASKED YOU KNOW THE ANSWER
HERE IN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE – HEREIN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE
HEREIN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE – THE PERFECT DANCER

It was the first flush in the heat of the night
And I don’t remember it feeling so right
The search for the truth had begun
I never guessed that we would see it as one.

CHORUS:-
AND THE BELL NEVER SOUNDS THE PHONE NEVER RINGS
I’VE GIVEN UP EVERYTHING
WHEN THE QUESTION IS ASKED YOU KNOW THE ANSWER
HERE IN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE – HEREIN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE
HEREIN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE – A PERFECT DANCER.

Bridge:-
It was passion and then it was love
Now you’re all I’m thinking of – The Perfect Dancer.

FINAL CHORUS:-
AND THE BELL NEVER SOUNDS THE PHONE NEVER RINGS
I’VE GIVEN UP EVERYTHING
WHEN THE QUESTION IS ASKED YOU KNOW THE ANSWER
HERE IN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE – HEREIN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE
HEREIN THE SHADOWS OF LOVE – MY PERFECT DANCER.

Please don’t let our light go out tonight

(J Johnson)

PLEASE DON’T LET OUR LIGHT GO OUT TONIGHT
How do you know when you’re out on your own
Where you’re blazing a trail through the strange and unknown
you think that you’re free coz you’re not there with me
But you’re alone
You’re trying to be what you think you should be
You’re hanging around and you’re waiting to see
But you’re losing your mind coz you’re hurting inside
And it shows.

CHORUS:-
PLEASE DON’T LET OUR LIGHT GO OUT
WHILST THERE’S WARMTH IN OUR HEARTS
THINK OF ALL THAT WE SHARED
BOTH THE GOOD AND THE SAD
LET ME HOLD YOU TONIGHT
I CAN MAKE IT ALL RIGHT
PUT YOUR FAITH IN OUR LOVE
PLEASE DONT LET OUR LIGHT GO OUT TONIGHT.

Refrain:-
Lve is the reason I’m waiting for you
Some things were just mean’t to be
We can do anything we can go antwhere
Let’s open our hearts and be free.

Take your time

(F Johnson/J Johnson)

TAKE YOUR TIME
Lazy days in summer time
Yesterday when you were mine
Like a fool I didn’t know
Just what I was letting go
After all you tried to teach me
I wouldn’t let your sweet love reach me.

CHORUS:-
TAKE YOUR TIME
TAKE SOME OF MINE
HOLD ON TO THOSE DREAMS
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY IT SEEMS.

Winter days were warm with you
Tenderly you saw me through
As I watched the falling snow
I realise I love you so
Please forgive me if you can
Coz after all your just a man.

CHORUS:-
SO TAKE YOUR TIME
TAKE SOME OF MINE
HOLD ON TO THOSE DREAMS
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY IT SEEMS.

Instrumental break:

CHORUS:-
SO TAKE YOUR TIME
TAKE SOME OF MINE
HOLD ON TO THOSE DREAMS
LOVE WILL FIND A WAY IT SEEMS
TAKE YOUR TIME
TAKE SOME OF YOUR MINE. (Fade)
