What's Love Got To Do

Written By: Charles Leggio

I saw her at the two-step near the barbecue
She said “Hello, how are you and how do you do?”
“I have a proposition so maybe you should listen…”
I graciously accepted that I’m spoken for
And then she said…
What’s love got to do with me loving you?
What’s love got to be to get you loving me?
What’s love but a day in your life as a stray
If I tear on down my homestead
I’ll be neutered and you’ll be spayed

What’s with all these pretty, lonely women
All they want’s a married man to warm their beds
The more they push I’m less inclined to oblige them
Besides my wife would take me out instead

Another one approached me in her Sunday best
She picked me out from all the other dinner guests
“I don’t live far, so hear me if you want to be near me…”
I graciously accepted that I’m spoken for
And then she said…
What’s love got to do with me loving you?
What’s love got to be to get you loving me?
What love’s not impure when a fish meets a lure?
If I’m your catch today
I’ll be neutered and you’ll be spayed

What’s with all these pretty, lonely women
All they want’s a married man to warm their beds
The more they push I’m less inclined to oblige them
Besides my wife would take me out instead

A third one tried engaging conversation
She said I’m the only one for her relations
“I want to be your wife if only for one night…”
I graciously accepted that I’m spoken for
And then she said…
What’s love got to do with me loving you?
What’s love got to be to get you loving me?
What love we’d have laid with the memories we’d have made
If I take you on the dance floor
I’ll be neutered and you’ll be spayed

Somewhere In My Heart

Written By: Charles Leggio

Over there
I can hear
A faint whisper in her tears
Crying out
From her face
It’s all I can do not to say that I love you

Every now and then I ask myself
What would life be without her
Time and again I say
My life with her is complete

In her eyes
I can see
Strands of strength to carry me
Through the years
And mistakes
I am sometimes so amazed that I found you

Where in my heart
Did you find
Something that changed your mind on me
Am I the ghost you could not see
Where in my heart
Is the sign
On this winding road to find
Something as easy as loving you
Somewhere in my heart

In a way
She’s the lens
Of a camera to her friends
In the words
Pictures paint
Every moment away I’m lost without you

Every now and then I ask myself
What would life be without her
Time and again I say
My life with her is complete

Now and Evermore

Written By: Charles Leggio

As she lays by my side
After all the tears she cried
Somehow she finds the strength
To say goodbye
Fielding calls when angels pray
She brightens even my darkest day
I’ll still love you when
There’s no more love to make

If I could touch what you feel
I could close what’s been unsealed
Maybe chase away the demons
From your fields
Being there doesn’t make it so
Paying more than you’ll ever owe
I’ll still love you when
There’s nowhere else to go

And she says
Don’t look ahead for yesterday
Or behind for tomorrow
‘Cause they’re not there
Trapped in a maze
It’s all I can say when it’s all over
I’ll always love you
Now and evermore

Tenderly obsessed
Never minding her duress
Or knowing when it’s
Someone’s turn to guess
Torn between the ones she loves
Loyalties carried on the wings of doves
I’ll still love you when
My hands are not your gloves
