In honor of Valentine's Day... Here are some of the lyrics to a song I adore called I GUESS I LOVE YOU written by Jack Murphy, music by Frank Wildhorn and recorded by Linda Eder. It's on her It's No Secret Anymore album. If you have NEVER heard of her, you are missing a real treat.(couldn't find a video of her singing this particular song, though) And just so you know, I paraphrased the lyrics, leaving some parts out. Let's just say I had my reasons and leave it at that. OK? It is a FUN song, a bit unconventional, but I think you'll like it. It comes from my heart. It is dedicated to all my blog buddies, friends, family, furbabies and last but not least, my hubby. HAPPY HEART DAY.

"I WANT you. What can I say?

I'm undeniably, reliably SINCERE that way

I NEED you... I must confess

The heart and soul of you, the whole of you

And nothing less.

'Cause when I'm near you

You pop the top off my thermostat

I guess I love you, that's that!

Why fight it...What can I do?

I am pathetically, genetically disposed to you

So take me... My heart's aflame

I'll be like Juliet who can't forget old what's-his-name

I guess I love you, like Santa loves his sled

Like "Blue Eyes" said: "You go to my head"

I want you... Haven't you heard?

I'm exponentially, essentially...Oh, what's the word?

I need you...Will I let go?

I'll be redundantly redundant... NO, no, no, no, no!

'Cause since I FOUND you

My life is one sappy, HAPPY mess.

How do I want you?

How do I need you?

How much do I love you?

Just guess."

PS) I was going to end my post on the picture above. But in light of recent news, I changed my mind.  When I first heard the song THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL it touched my soul. It was such an inspiration. Whitney Houston may you Rest in Peace. Your VOICE, that AMAZING voice,  will be missed by us all.

Happy Valentine's Day:) ♥

Bobbi said...

Love it!
So sad about Whitney... so very sad.

Soos said...

Mahalo for sharing the sentiments!

Lucy said...

Have a great Valentines Day!! Addiction can be overcome and why someone like Whitney Houston could not do it, I will never know. She, Elvis Presley, many country western singers, really make me angry. My husband beat an addiction to alcohol.

I must find this woman and hear her sing it! So sad about Whitney. What a talent. My most vivid memory was being at my parents for the Superbowl and upstairs in the kitchen and heard her singing the SSB and racing downstairs into the family room! What a voice.

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Nelle said...

Happy Valentine's Day to you and hubby.

Pam said...

Hope you've had a great day today. I guess I never realized how much I miss Whitney until they started doing tributes to her. She was such a huge part of my 80's and 90's.

Pat MacKenzie said...

I hope you had a lovely Valentines day with your sweetheart. That is a cute song. I'll have to find a way to listen to it someday.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, thank you for that funny little song. It was great. And Whitney's The Greatest Love Of All is one of my favorites of hers. I hope your day of love was a special one. I can't get over this spinning red heart. I keep looking at it and smiling.
Happy Friday, sweetie.
