Lyric of the week

May 29, 2013

There goes my baby with someone new
She sure looks happy, I sure am blue
She was my baby till he stepped in
Goodbye to romance that might have been

Bye bye love
Bye bye happiness
Hello loneliness
I think I’m-a gonna cry

Bye bye love
Bye bye sweet caress
Hello emptiness
I feel like I could die
Bye bye my love goodbye

I’m through with romance, I’m through with love
I’m through with countin’ the stars above
And here’s the reason that I’m so free
My lovin’ baby is through with me

(The Everly Brothers, “Bye Bye Love”)

The papers lie there helplessly
In a pile outside the door
I’ve tried and tried, but I just can’t remember what they’re for
The world outside is tugging like a beggar at my sleeve
Now, that’s much too old a story to believe

And you know that it’s taken it’s share of me
Even though you take such good care of me
Now you say “Morocco” and that makes me smile
I haven’t seen Morocco in a long, long while
The dreams are rolling down across the places in my mind
And I’ve just had a taste of something fine

(Jackson Browne, “Something Fine”)
