Astrid’s Simply Bassey #181

Today I am dedicating a song to Darby for the very special Lydia who wrote to me:

.“Thank you for all of the lovely delightful songs you share with all of us.  I am writing today to request a special song.  My only little brother died in September.  On March 10th it will be six months since he passed away. I would like to dedicate “And I love you so” to my dear brother Darby.  He was always so excited to hear my Shirley Bassey music. He too was taken away by Shirley’s gifted voice. I miss him, but I am so glad that his 16 year battle with MS is over, and he is resting in peace. Thank you Astrid for all the joy you spread on this blog.”

Extending deepest sympathies on behalf of the Bassey Blog team to Lydia and her family.

Lyric

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I’ve lived till now
I tell them I don’t know
I guess they understand
How lonely life has been
But life began again
The day you took my hand
And yes, I know
How lonely life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free
But I don’t let the evening get me down
Now that you’re around me

And you loved me too
Your thoughts are just for me
You set my spirit free
I’m happy that you do
The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is there
That is my belief

And yes, I know
How loveless life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free
But I don’t let the evening get me down
Now that you’re around me

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I’ve lived till now
I tell them I don’t know

And I Love You So
