Them There Eyes

I have very eclectic taste in music.  I enjoy making mix CDs for friends and family, and they are always a random (bordering on chaotic) blend of genres.  If you like surprises, you would like my mix CDs.  🙂  Today, I wanted to highlight a few of my favorite song lyrics about love.  Please keep in mind that these lyrics will NOT have the same impact without hearing the beautiful melodies that go along with them and their context within the complete song.  I recommend listening to each of these songs when you’re in a romantic mood.  Can you identify any of these lyrics?

1)  All at once you look across a crowded room to see the way that light attaches to a girl…
2)  Mercy’s eyes are blue and when she places them in front of you nothing holds a Roman candle to the solemn warmth you feel inside…
3)  And in a wide sea of eyes I see one pair that I recognize and I know that I am, I am, I am the luckiest…
4)  I fell in love with you the first time I looked into them there eyes…
5)  Remember those walls I built?  Well, baby, they’re tumbling down.  And they didn’t even put up a fight.  They didn’t even make a sound.  I found a way to let you in, but I never really had a doubt…
6)  At last my love has come along.  My lonely days are over and life is like a song…
7)  Then say you’ll share with me one love, one lifetime.  Let me lead you from your solitude.  Say you need me with you, here beside you.  Anywhere you go, let me go too…
8) So take me don’t leave me.  Take me don’t leave me.  Baby, love will come through it’s just waiting for you.  Well I stand at the crossroads of highroads and lowroads, and I got a feeling it’s right.  If it’s real what I’m feeling there’s no make believing the sound of the wings of the flight of a dove…
9) If anyone can make me a better person you could.  All I gotta say is I must’ve done something good.  You came along one day and you rearranged my life.  All I gotta say is I must’ve done something right…
10)  Nights when the heat had gone out.  We danced together alone.  Cold turned our breath into clouds.  We never said what we were dreaming of, but you turned me into somebody loved…
11) If you let your feelings go, dear, it’ll scare you what you’ll find.  I find them on your street, dear, and you’re always on my mind.  No one needs to know that you let me in tonight.
That you let me see the world behind your eyes…
12)  Chances are you’ll find me somewhere on your street tonight.  Seems I always end up driving by.  Ever since I’ve known you it just seems you’re on my way.  All the rules of logic don’t apply…
13)  I think I figured it out.  We need to be together like the shore and the sea.  We are not one thing.  We’re drawn here together; my ocean and me…Love, we sleep apart for the last time,
For the last time…
14) There’s no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard, no song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart.  Our dreams, and they are made out of real things like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving.  Love is the answer, at least for most of the questions in my heart like why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving.  I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together…
