Lyrics:

Something in the way he moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way he moves me
I don’t want to leave him now
You know I believe in how

Somewhere in his smile he knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in his style that shows me
Don’t want to leave him now
You know I believe in how

You’re asking me will our love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way he moves
And all I have to do is think of him
Something in the things he shows me
I don’t want to leave him now
You know I believe in how

You’re asking me will our love grow
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way he moves
Something in the way he knows
Something in the way he smiles
Something in the way he moves
Something in the way he smiles
Something

FROM THE ARCHIVE 341 -1984-

MI0001812057I Am What I Am was the only studio album recorded by Shirley Bassey for the Towerbell Records label, several other tracks were also recorded at this label and issued as singles only. The recording sessions took place at Olympic Studios, Barnes, London, in July and August 1984. Following the success of the previous album All by Myself this album peaked at number 25 in the UK album chart and reached Gold status. This release was the first digitally recorded album made by Shirley Bassey and was issued on vinyl, cassette and CD. Consisting of mainly re-recordings from Shirley Bassey’s back catalogue and two new songs, this album was recorded ‘live’ with The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Carl Davies. The album also reunited Shirley Bassey with Norman Newell, who had served successfully as her producer throughout the 1960s. More……….

Towerbell Records is now defunct but this album has been re-issued on CD many times on various labels.

Several of the vocal performances made for this recording were remixed for the 2007 album Get the Party Started.

Lyrics:

What now my love?
Now that you’ve left me
How can I live
Through another day?

Watching my dreams
Turning to ashes
And my hopes
Into bits of clay

Once I could see
Once I could feel
Now I’m numb
I’ve become unreal

I walk the night
Without a goal
Stripped of my heart
My soul

What now my love?
Now that it’s over
I feel the world
Closing in on me

Here come the stars
Tumbling around me
There’s the sky
Where the sea should be

What now my love?
Now that you’re gone
I’d be a fool
To go on and on

No one would care
No one would cry
If I should live
Or die

What now my love?
Now there is nothing
Only my last
Goodbye

Finally below you can watch Dame Shirley Bassey perform What My Love live in 2009 at the Electric Proms supported by the Welsh Guards.
