That's How Strong My Love Is
Otis Redding Lyrics


If I was the sun way up there
I'd go with love most everywhere
I'll be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know that I'm still around

That's how strong my love is, whoa
That's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby
That's how strong my love is

I'll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
And you can go swimming when you're here
And I'll be the rainbow after the tears are gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

That's how strong my love is, darling
That's how strong my love is, baby
That's how strong my love is, whoa
That's how strong my love is

I'll be the ocean so deep and wide
And catch the tears whenever you cry
I'll be the breeze after the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and love you warm

That's how strong my love is, baby
That's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, darling
That's how strong my love is, again now

That's how strong my love is, so deep in
Well, that's how strong my love is
So much love, yes so much love, whoa
Yes so much love, yes so much love
Anything that I can do, I'll be good for you
Any kind of love you want, I'll be with you

That's How Strong My Love Is

If I was the sun way up there
I'd go with love most everywhere
I'll be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know that I'm still around

That's how strong my love is, whoa
That's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, baby, baby
That's how strong my love is

I'll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
And you can go swimming when you're here
And I'll be the rainbow after the tears are gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

That's how strong my love is, darling
That's how strong my love is, baby
That's how strong my love is, whoa
That's how strong my love is

I'll be the ocean so deep and wide
And catch the tears whenever you cry
I'll be the breeze after the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and love you warm

That's how strong my love is, baby
That's how strong my love is
That's how strong my love is, darling
That's how strong my love is, again now

That's how strong my love is, so deep in
Well, that's how strong my love is
So much love, yes so much love, whoa
Yes so much love, yes so much love
Anything that I can do, I'll be good for you
Any kind of love you want, I'll be with you.



Truth Seeker

(Verse 1)
If I were the sun way up there,
I'd glow of love most everywhere.
I'll be the moon when the sun goes down ,
Just to let you know that I'm still around.

(Verse 2)
I'll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears,
And you can go swimming when you are here .
And I'll be the rainbow after the tears are gone,
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm.

(Bridge)
I'll be the ocean so deep and wide,
It gets all the tears whenever you cry.
I'll be the breeze after the storm is gone,
To dry your eyes and love you all warm.

This is such an underrated song. Especially lyrically. The way Otis intertwines the verses with a message. That's how genius Otis is. Hopefully one day, he gets justice!

Otis redding is one of the few singers who can turn me into a blubbering wreck when I hear him sing. One reason is it reminds me of a time long gone when songs and singers like otis existed it actually hurts to listen knowing there will never be another like him, another reason is he sings with pure emotion and raw soul... I never understood what soul music meant until I heard him sing I mean really sing and feel each word, for me otis redding and Sam cooke were beyond special and im thankful their music lives on so we never forget what gifts they had 🎶

LUCY Luu

Amen!! You just Said Everything I Feel and have felt for as long as I can Remember!! I so LOVE Otis and Same Cooke. Hardly a Day goes By that I Don't think of them, Listen to them and Miss the Good ole Days when we Had REAL Singers with Soul.. oh how I miss Those Days.

Delinda Jerome

You are absolutely right. However, i was just watching American idol and this young man from New Orleans just sang, That's How Strong My Love Is, by Otis Redding... i had to look up the song, because all i could hear was Sam Cook, and Otis Redding and i didn't know the song was by Otis Redding.. i was getting those vibes. i hope the young man will go far. I will be voting for him..

Listen to Sam Cooke, then listen to Steve Perry (former singer with Journey) you can see where Steve got his influence from.
