atlantic soul

Do you ever have one of those moments when you're just doing your thing, minding your own business, and then a song comes on that makes you stop still. Goosebumps down your back?

It just happened.

I love those moments. They happen once a year if you're lucky. I'm going to write out the lyrics - but it won't even do it justice. I URGE you to hear this song.


Barbara Lewis - Baby, I'm Yours.

Baby, I'm yours
And I'll be yours until the stars fall from the sky,
Yours until the rivers all run dry
In other words, until I die

Baby, I'm yours
And I'll be yours until the sun no longer shines,
Yours until the poets run out of rhyme
In other words, until the end of time

I'm gonna stay right here by your side,
Do my best to keep you satisfied
Nothin' in the world can drive me away
'Cause every day, you'll hear me say

Baby, I'm yours
And I'll be yours until two and two is three,
Yours until the mountains crumble to the sea
In other words, until eternity

Baby, I'm yours
'Til the stars fall from the sky
Baby, I'm yours
'Til the rivers all run dry
Baby, I'm yours
'Til the poets run out of rhyme

  1. sounds lovely...do you have an mp3 of it? can you e-mail? will it change my life? should I have a muffin at morning break?

  2. Well the muffin question goes without saying.

    Alas I have no mp3s though. Slsk it!

    Of course if I just so happen to get you on the next mix swap, you might happen to find this track on there...
