David Gates was best known as the leader of the 70’s soft rock group Bread. Bread broke up and David launched a solo career recording Good-bye Girl for a Neil Simon film. However, this song was released a year ago, and yet his golden voice remained as wonderful as before.
Skies are not as blue, when you’re not with me
The stars, they never seem to shine as bright
And the hours drag like days across the ages
And a year or two pass by with every night.
It makes me know if I should ever leave this world before you do
When you follow you must promise, cross your heart and promise to
Find me…look hard, and don’t stop, I’ll be waiting till then
Dont sleep, and don’t eat till I’m back, back in your arms again
I don’t wanna have to spend all my forever without you.
Just knowing that you’re out there somewhere too.
So darling…please I’m beggin’ you on bended knee…
I’ve tried to tell this world how much I love you.
But they don’t understand how deep it goes.
And I can’t even find the words to tell you
So I’m the only one who really knows.
And though we have our time together, I am always wanting more
So if we get separated won’t you do just like before and
Find me…look hard and don’t stop, I’ll be waiting till then
Don’t sleep, don’t eat till I’m back, back in your arms again
Through a hundred million faces you will see me shinin’ through.
‘Cause I glow when you come close , I always do.
So darlin’ please im begging you on bended knee..
We can share our love through all eternity
‘Cause with you is all I ever wanna be……
