Misty Roses
Colin Blunstone Lyrics


You look to me like misty roses
Too soft to touch
But too lovely to leave alone

If I could be like misty roses
I'd love you so much
You're too lovely to leave alone

Flowers often cry
But too late to find
That their beauty has been lost
With their peace of mind

You look to me like love forever
Too good to last
But too lovely not to try

Flowers often cry
But too late to find
That their beauty has been lost
With their peace of mind

If I believe in love forever
I'd forget the past
You're too lovely not to try

You look to me like misty roses
Too soft to touch
But too lovely to leave alone

Flowers often cry
But too late to find
That their beauty has been lost
With their peace of mind

If I believe in love forever
I'd forget the past
You're too lovely not to try

Too soft to touch
But too lovely to leave alone
If I could be like misty roses
I love you much
You're too lovely to leave alone

Flowers often cry
But too late to find
That their beauty has been lost
With their peace of mind
You look to me like love forever
Too good to last
But too lovely not to try
If I believe in love forever
I'd forget the past
You're too lovely
Not to try

Strange to listen to my guitar playing at the beginning, must have done this in 69 or thereabouts so 50 years ago.
It seems like yesterday, drinking pint after pint at the pub with Colin then going in the studio and finally using an old beaten up nylon string guitar abandoned by some musician as Colin preferred the sound to mine. I don't really like my playing here, and the tempo's a bit fast for my taste, but the string arrangement is fabulous, those would have probably been guys from the London Symphony Orchestra.
Funnily enough I'm working on a cover right now in my own home studio, slower tempo and more laid back. I'll post here when I'm done if that's possible.

Stunning guitar playing on this track and showcases Colin Blunstone's wonderful voice perfectly. And that string arrangement! I bought 'One Year' on vinyl many long years ago and it is still one of my favourite albums. You must be so proud to have been part of such a beautiful album, and rightly so.

Can I sample a bit of it for some personal work?

This is the most obscure arrangement, but such intact piece of orchestral brilliance that has ever graced my 43 years of placing myself in musical history . Thank You!

NIce bossa nova beat with that classical guitar... Astrude Gilberto would love it. Thanks for Tim Hardin's incredible writing and soulful singing. Good job Colin; and I don't usually like covers of Hardin...nice!!!
