Lyrics

When My Love Is Near

Written By: Margaret O'Brien

“When My Love Is Near”

When my love does speak
His voice it seems to me to be
As sweet as the nightbird
And though I slept
I would answer him
For his melody holds
The key to my soul.

And if my love cried out
In the darkness
Alone or afraid
Through the cold
I would come to him
For his comfort is
As necessary as my own.

And when my love grows old
And the frailties of age
Do beset him
Even if I walk slowly
I will stay by him
For our hearts will remain
Forever steadfast.

And when my love is near
I breathe more deeply
For it seems that all is possible
And when my love is near
My heart does touch the sky
For it seems that all is possible
Because my love is near
Because my love is near
Because my love is near

Take A Chance

Written By: Margaret O'Brien

I see you almost every day, and you smile at me.
Working out what I'm gonna say, to impress you.
Oooohhhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

I see the way that you treat your friends, looks good to me.
I think that I would like to spend, time with you.
Oooohhhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

You seem to radiate from deep within, a loving soul.
Heart strings playing like a violin, vibrations.
Oooohhhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

You may have lost at love in the past, so you have doubts.
But I know that we can make it last, this time.
Oooohhhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

You know it's been awhile for me, but I'm eager to.
Try this love thing on and see, where it leads to.
Oooohhhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

So the next time that I see you, coming down my street.
Gonna introduce myself, so we can meet.
Oooohhhh...take a chance, join love's dance.
Come on baby, take a chance on this romance.

Chorus:
Because I am so tired of being alone.
Want a sweet lovin man to call my own.
Enjoy the riches that love can bestow.
Hearts of gold can give off a glow.
Let your feelings show.
Let me know.
Let me know.
Let me know.
