I want to walk with youOn a cloudy dayIn fields where the yellow grass growsknee-high
Love this, because there is lots of knee-high yellow grass where I live. I can sooo picture it.
When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I’ll never give my heartAnd the moment I can feel that you feel that way tooIs when I fall in love with you.
It’s a bit like one of my favourite quotes (minus the cooking part…but good advice nonetheless): Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all. –Harriet Van Horne
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
Now doesn’t that just say it all? Such a pure and giving love – nothing expected, nothing needed. Just celebrating that the world is better with you in it *sigh*.
I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes.
Well truth be told, the whole song makes me melt, but that line about “love light in your eyes”? Wow.
It’s the heart afraid of breakingThat never learns to dance.It’s the dream afraid of wakingThat never takes the chance.
You must remember thisA kiss is still a kissA sigh is still a sigh
Apart from being an archetypal love song, this is a reminder to those of us who are returning to all this romance stuff after a long hiatus not to take things too seriously, not to over think it. After all, “a kiss is still a kiss…”
…You smiled, you smiled
And then the spell was cast
Great song. Great artist. Great line. Indeed, I have lived this feeling…
If I should live foreverAnd all my dreams come trueMy memories of love will be of you
Apart from reminding me of my mother, that first and safest of loves, this song overflows with beautiful sentiments about that most beautiful of emotions.
2. In My Life — The Beatles
Though I know I’ll never lose affectionFor people and things that went beforeI know I’ll often stop and think about themIn my life I love you more
What can I say? It’s The Beatles. And although some would argue that Something is the best Beatles love song ever, this one speaks to me more. Plus, I love that sorta baroque piano solo!
My life is yours,my heart will be,singing for you eternally
Ahhh…I love absolutely everything about this song. The lyrics are incredible…I mean, who among us has not had that “take my breath away” feeling with a lover? And also: Patti’s timbre is right around the same range as mine, so I can easily crank this tune in the car and sing along at the top of my voice. Which I love doing, by the way.
It’s too good to slip byToo good to loseToo good to be thereJust to use
Anyway you slice it, this is definitely my all-time favourite love song. At the moment, it is on high rotation (as in, repeat one) on my iPhone.
