Robert, Would you post the lyrics to The Love of My Life? I like to figure out the meaning of your songs and there are a few words I am not sure about in that one. Thanks.

  • Robert, the lyrics you have written for The Love of My Life intrigue me so.  I was reading Practicing the Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and I wrote down this quote about the same time that I became aware of your song. 

    "Relationships are not here to make you happy or fulfilled.  If you continue to pursue the goal of salvation through a relationship, you will be disillusioned again and again.  But if you accept that the relationship is here to make you conscious instead of happy, then the relationship will offer you salvation, and you will be aligning yourself with the higher consciousness that wants to be born into this world."

    If this is true, it changes everything about the way a person should experience and view relationships.  What, in the past, would be considered a failure or a disaster or turmoil can now be understood as an advace learning experience providing a sort of evolution for the soul.  How did you become attuned to this thinking?  You are the only lyricist that I am aware that writes about such things.  Bravo!

    so many people with a story to tell 

    the world’s full of victims

    and if you asked them what they’re trying to sell

    they want to drag you down with them

    they want to drag you down with them


    in the end the love we live with

    is the love that we wait for

    and the waiting cuts like a knife

    in the end the love we hoped for

    is the love that we learned with

    looking for the love of my life

    the love of my life

    there’s not a day when i don’t open my eyes

    random moments of fashion

    your heart will guide me when my head tells me lies

    I’ve still got the passion

    you know I’ve still got the passion 


    nevermind tomorrow

    it’s only a gypsie's fantasy

    time we have is borrowed

    only wanting what we’re needing

    needing only what we have today


    alt chorus:

     got to treasure every moment

    every moment is a good time

    and I never have nothing to hide

    got a sense of someone who cares

    automation is deadly

    looking for the love of my life

    the love of my life


    • Thanks. There is a lot of wisdom in those words.
