Song Lyric Sunday

For Song Lyric Sunday Helen has asked us to post a song about missing someone you love. Let’s let them know how much you miss them and can’t wait to see them again.

I’ve chosen a song from the 1970’s by the British singer Ralph McTell. I was introduced to his music by a boyfriend and this song came to have greater meaning after the relationship ended. It is still one of my favorite songs all these years later.

I’ve written words that say I’m leaving.
Words express the pain.
Old songs lose their meanings,
But new ones they gain.
From Changes that I’ve been through,
New ones I’m coming to.
You were my first song,
And I still…

Sure I still get feelings
To get back on the road.
And I still get leanings
To forget the things I know.
About myself and changes,
Gone through and coming to.
And you were my first song
And I still…

Do words express true meanings,
I mean the words I’ve still to sing.
Old loves lose their feelings,
But new ones they gain.
Changes that I’ve been through,
New ones I’m coming to
You were my first song,
And I still…

Yes, you were my first song,
And I still…

Yes, you were my first song,
And I still…

You were my first song,
And I still love you.

  1. I think my first boy friend and I danced to “Time in a Bottle” and will always think of him, Lisa, when I hear those lyrics. My girlfriend’s and I liked listening to Elvis singing “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.” 🙂 Sigh! ❤
