WHERE ARE YOU?
The heights of love can envelope your heart yet it can also disappear in the blink of an eye. The haunting melodic energy of this song asks the questions that never seem to get an answer. I was always left wondering where did the love go and where is the person that once was there… Totally left alone with insurmountable questions and in an emotional quandary that remains unanswered.
This song was taken from the “Smokey and the Bandit” soundtrack album and is one of the most moving songs that really creates the emotional connection to one love that comes and goes then comes and goes again. Lyrically the dynamic words would connect to most anyone who has ever felt unrequited love yet continued to hope for the moment when it would no longer ebb and flow and just stay consistent. Not having the courage to disavow it, the love just keeps leaving and then appearing again and again.
You make me weak, when I need to be strong
Break my defenses, till I can no longer resist
It's always like this
And then I'll cry again, say goodbye again and again.
You make it start, with a touch of your hand
I fall apart, till there's nothing to stand in the way
Whatever you say, I'll believe again
Then you'll leave again and again.
How many times, must I go through
this thinking I'm really over you
And how many time, will I open my arms
And let you fall back in.
Oh, time after time, I say I won't give in
Your eyes meet mine, I feel it beginning
And I just don't even try
I just fall again, give it all again and again.
Again and again, again and again...
