Just Love: Concert Love

In the early 1970s, I lived in a big enough city that bands came through. So, when we had our $5 for a ticket, we’d go hang out on the arena floor. Concert love. Amazing performances (ours and the band’s).

I saw the Strawbs twice: once as an opening band, then later as the main act.

I have access to music via my computer, so I am reliving my musical life.

For Song Lyric Sunday, thought I’d chose a love song by the Strawbs, written by band member at the time Dave Lambert. I use lyricsty.com to locate lyrics.

I can see you through my window
With the world you just go passing by
I can hear you in my garden
Waiting for my flowers all to die
Nothing in here is real
Nothing in here is real
No matter how I try
I can’t get you out of my mind.
It’s just love
Don’t try to understand it
You can’t put your arms around it
You might never love again
It’s just love
Don’t try to understand it
If you’ve money you’d best spend it
You might never love again.
There’s your face right in my mirror
I can hear you calling out my name
Feel your hand upon my shoulder
Will I ever be the same again
Nothing in here is real
Nothing in here is real
No matter how I try
I can’t get you out of my mind.
Without your song
Something’s gone
Something good enough to hang your heart on.
If you call me I will answer
You will always be my helping hand
And if I need you in my darkness
I know you will always understand
Nothing in here is real
Nothing in here is real
No matter how I try
I can’t get you out of my mind.

  1. What a great song! I don’t remember this band from the 70s, but then, I doubt I would have been allowed to listen to them anyway.. (strict christian upbringing).. but if I had… oh wow! it would’ve been amazing! Love those lyrics!
