The only thing that's right...

My first love,
You're every breath that I take,
You're every step I make.

And I,
I want to share
All my love with you,
No one else will do.

And your eyes,
They tell me how much you care.
Oh, yes you will always be
My endless love.

Two hearts,
Two hearts that beat as one,
Our lives have just begun.

I'll hold you close in my arms,
I can't resist your charms.

And love,
I'll be a fool for you,
I'm sure.
You know I don't mind,
Whoooooa, you know I don't mind.

'Cos you,
You mean the world to me.
Oh, I know,
I know I found in you
My endless love.

[Instrumental Interlude]

And love,
I'll be that fool for you,
I'm sure.
You know I don't mind.
Whooooa, you know I don't mind.
And yes,
You'll be the only one,
'Cos no one can't deny
This love I have inside,
And I'll give it all to you,
My love,
My endless love.

Thinks that I am unforgettable, too.

That someone so unforgettable,
Thinks that I am unforgettable, too..

"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"
 Roberta Flack

When you get to the top seven, it's like splitting hairs.  A consummate love song, Roberta Flack burst onto the scene with this classic.  Many female singers today know how to belt out a song at the top of their lungs, but they don't know how to sing a song tenderly, as Roberta does here.  The way she treats this song, as one listener put it below, is "almost sacred".  Which is what true love is.

"Roberta tiene una voz exquisitamente Hermosa."

"Very romantic theme."

"I hear perfection.  Roberta is spectacular, great on this song."
"Fantástische song!"
"One of the most romantic songs i`ve ever heard."
"Overwhelming song."

"This song gave me chills way back when and it still does..."

"This beautiful piece, of all types of music, is probably the nearest thing to convey what love is. It is almost sacred."


"I think this song is as close to perfection as it gets."

"Oh god, this is so touching it's making me cry." 

"And yes, it's like a hymn."

"My all-time favourite song."

"So much feeling in this song, it's like the best declaration of love."

"The Gold standard."

"My very, very favorite song in the whole world!!!  Truly a beautiful love song!"

"Brings tears to my eyes, her voice is so beautiful."

The first time, ever I saw your face,
 I thought the sun rose in your eyes.
 And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
 To the dark and the endless skies, my love...
 To the dark and the endless skies...

 And the first time, ever I kissed your mouth,

 I felt the earth move in my hand!
 Like the trembling heart of a captive bird,
 That was there at my command, my love...
 That was there at my command, my love...

 And the first time, ever I lay with you,

 I felt your heart so close to mine.
 And I knew our joy would fill the earth,
 And last 'til the end of time, my love.
 And it would last 'til the end of time, my love.

 The first time, ever I saw your face,

 Your face,
 Your face,
 Your face...


Barbra Streisand

In her prime, her voice was on top of the world.  Streisand delivered a classic love song in 1976 loved the world over.  What is so great about this song is that it points out that true love is not hard; rather, it is "soft as an easy chair".  The lyrics are timeless, and the melody superb. 

"Can anyone else sing something so beautifully?  Not many, that's for sure."
"What an angelic voice--my soul feels so good."
"The control in her vocals here is uniquely flawless."
"Simply fabulous."
"Beautiful.....simply beautiful...makes my tears run down my cheeks." 
"A masterpiece."
"Wow, the best record of all-time."
"One love, ageless and evergreen... beautiful..."
Love, soft as an easy chair...
 Love, fresh as the morning air...
 One love that is shared by two,
 I have found with you!

 Like a rose, under the April snow...
 I was always certain love would grow.
 Love, ageless and evergreen,
 Seldom seen by two...

 You and I will make each night the first,
 Everyday a beginning.
 Spirits rise and their dance is unrehearsed,
 They warm and excite us,
 'Cause we have the brightest love!

 Two lights that shine as one...
 Morning glory and midnight sun.
 Time... we've learned to sail above,
 Time... won't change the meaning of one love,
 Ageless and ever, evergreen... 


"My Heart Will Go On"
Celine Dion

Although it is a great centerpiece of a classic movie and romantic tale that will always evoke memories of that film, this classic song proudly stands on its own as a love song standard.  The woman in the song is so glad her man is strong--"You're here, there's nothing I fear."  The line "Near, far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on"  is timeless.  The echo effect at the end was perfectly chosen to represent that their love indeed does go on and on. 

"Her voice is incredible."

"So beautiful."
"This is a masterpiece."
"Perfectiunea in compozitie si voce.Absolut superb!!!!"
"This song touches the soul of feelings." 
"Está hermosa esta canción me hace sentir viva..."
"forever my song..."
"This song is awesome."
"This song is so beautiful...... No words can describe how amazing it is...."
"Beautiful!  Speechless...Bra-V0!!"
"Amazing voice and a beautiful very beautiful song!!!!!  TITANIC GO ON FOREVER!!!!!!!!!"
"I never get tired of listening to this soul piercing track, can't stop shedding tears."

Every night in my dreams,
I see you, I feel you,
 That is how I know you go on.

 Far across the distance,

 And spaces between us,
 You have come to show you go on.

 Near, far, wherever you are,

 I believe that the heart does go on.
 Once more, you open the door.
 And you're here in my heart,
 And my heart will go on and on...

 Love can touch us one time,

 And last for a lifetime,
 And never let go till we're gone.

 Love was when I loved you,

 One true time I hold to,
 In my life we'll always go on.

 Near, far, wherever you are,

 I believe that the heart does go on.
 Once more, you open the door.
 And you're here in my heart,
 And my heart will go on and on...

 You're here, there's nothing I fear,

 And I know that my heart will go on.
 We'll stay forever this way,
 You are safe in my heart
 And my heart will go on and on.

Dan Fogelberg

Dan Fogelberg wrote a masterpiece in 1979 with this one.  He had to have been "in the zone" in writing lyrics that flowed together like the ones in "Longer".  In an all too brief three minutes, he is saying that he and his lover's souls were together long before there were stars or fishes.  Then he professes that his love is "stronger than any mountain cathedral", and truer than any tree ever grew.  But most impressively, he masterfully captures the deep love that a couple shares in their twilight years, and Fogelberg was just 28 years old at the time!  

"One of the great tunes ever written!!!!"
"♪♡♪Love this song always..!!!♪♡♪"
"This song touches inside and makes the hair on my neck stand up.  On some days, it will bring a tear to my eye.  I believe many guys feel the same way about his music."
"Beautiful and special."

"Dan the Man."
"This song is too beautiful!!!"

"Deep and very spiritual."
"Beautiful song."
"Absolutely majestic."
"Sem palavras para descrever essa bela canção."
"To the highest of human feeling."
"As love songs go, it's hard to beat "Longer".  So epic.  So perfect."

Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean,
 Higher than any bird ever flew,
 Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens,
 I've been in love with you.

 Stronger than any mountain cathedral,

 Truer than any tree ever grew,
 Deeper than any forest primeval,
 I am in love with you.

 I'll bring fire in the winters;

You'll send showers in the springs.
 We'll fly through the falls and summers
 With love on our wings.

 Through the years,

as the fire starts to mellow,
 Burning lines in the book of our lives,
 Though the binding cracks, and the pages start to yellow,
 I'll be in love with you.
 I'll be in love with you.

 Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean,

 Higher than any bird ever flew,
 Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens,
 I've been in love with you.
 I am in love with you.


"When A Man Loves A Woman"
Percy Sledge
This song, perhaps better than any other, describes what a man feels when he truly loves a woman.  Percy Sledge delivered a vocal for the ages...
"Beautiful music,,,,,,touches the soul and the heart."
"Impressive Sensuality.
"Beautifully done."
"A classic, beautiful track."
"Greatest & most true love song ever written & sung."
"One of the best songs ever, always will be."
"This song is so classic... Love it ♥"
"Beautiful, chills all over..."
"One of the most beautiful songs ever written."
"This recording is almost 50 years old and still the best song I've ever heard." 
When a man loves a woman,
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else,
 He'd change the world for the good thing he's found.

 If she is bad, he can't see it,
She can do no wrong,
Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down.

When a man loves a woman,
He'll spend his very last dime,
 Tryin' to hold on to what he needs.

He'd give up all his comforts,
 And sleep out in the rain,
 If she said that's the way It ought to be.

Well, this man loves you, woman.
I gave you everything I have,
Tryin' to hold on to your heartless love.
Baby, please don't treat me bad.

When a man loves a woman,
 Down deep in his soul,
She can bring him such misery.
If she is playin' him for a fool,
He's the last one to know.
 Lovin' eyes can never see.

When a man loves a woman,
 He can do her no wrong.
 He can never want some other girl.

 Yes, when a man loves a woman,
 I know exactly how he feels,
'Cause baby, baby, you're my world.

 When a man loves a woman....
I know exactly how he feels...

God speed your love to me!

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea,
To the open arms of the sea...
Lonely rivers sigh, "Wait for me, wait for me,
I'll be coming home, wait for me".

Whoa, my love,
My darling,
I've hungered, hungered for your touch,
A long, lonely time.

I need your love,
God speed your love to me !

My darling, you...

Bittersweet memories –
That is all I'm taking with me.
