The Very Thought Of You

12 Jun

I don’t need your photograph to keep by my bed
Your picture is always in my head
I don’t need your portrait, dear, to bring you to mind
For sleeping or waking, dear, I find

The very thought of you and I forget to do
The little ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I’m living in a kind of daydream
I’m happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
Why to me that’s everything

The mere idea of you, the longing here for you
You’ll never know how slow the moments go till I’m near to you
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It’s just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It’s just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

    Nat King Cole has to be one of my favourite singers – my gran had a few of his records when I was very young – so I am tempted to see if he’s on CD yet, but money has to be saved as bad times are a-comin’ with the Work Assessment tests which are having to be overturned at a rate of 70% on average with many suicides attributed to people being forced off Incapacity Benefit and on to JSA in order to make the private assessment company lots of money because they are paid on results, not on accuracy, while mental illness is not considered, nor the medical records of the victim.

    It’s all a government controlled scam to save 18 million off benefits that’s already raising protests across the country and in Political circles…

    God Bless!

    Hearing this song takes me back to my childhood….my parents dancing together in the living room. 🙂
