For Your Precious Love
Jerry Butler Lyrics


Your precious love means more to me
Than any love could ever be
For when I wanted you
I was so lonely and blue
For That's what love will do
And darling, I'm so surprised
Oh, when I first realized
That you were fooling me
And darling, they say that our love won't grow

But I just want to tell them they don't know
For as long as you're in love with me
Our love will grow wider
Deeper than any sea
And of all the things that I want
In this whole wide world, is
Just for you to say that you'll be my girl
Wanting you, I'm so lonely and blue
That's what love will do

This 26 oktober will be. 40 years ,for my sister up on high, she was an angel the day she was born! She was ran over by a drunk ,she was 5,& a 1/2
I was 11 , my brother was 10.
The drunk was 26.
Ive fully forgiven him,and have prayed for him ,and his children!
My sister cheryl joy
Was (D.O.A)
BORN 20 MARCH 1974
26 OKTOBER 1979.
I WAS SUPPOSED TO WATCH ,OVER HER ,YET IT IS MY HEAVENLY ANGEL
WHO WATCHES OVER ,ME FROM UP ON HIGH!!
IVE HAD ,MANY DREAMS OF HER OVER THE YEARS , SHE IS THE SAME AGE , I DONT SEE ,HER FACE CLOSELY
I JUST ,WANT TO REMBER HER, AS SHE WAS!
WHEN LAST WE DREAMED, WE HUGGED AND THAT HUGG WAS THE EQUIVALENT OF 10,000
LIGHTNING BOLTS!
WE HUGGED ,EVER SO BRIEFLY, THEN WE SLOWLY DRIFTED ,APART , I TOLD
HER I COULDNT ,STAY UP ON HIGH MY DAD, WIFE ,AND BROTHER ARE
ALL STILL DOWN THERE!
THEN WE DRIFTED A LITTLE FURTHER,
AT EXACT MOMENT ,WE BOTH SAID
WHEN NEXT WE MEET UP ON HIGH
IT SHALL BE ** FUR IMMER!!**
LOVE IS WHY WE WERE EVER CREATED, JESUS IS OUR ONE TRUE REDEMPTION!
ALAS ,FOR WHEN WE LOVE ,AS PURE
AV HEART ,BEWARE THINE KINGDOM
OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND!!

Your precious love
Means more to me
Than any love could ever be

For when I wanted you
I was so lonely and so blue
For that's what love will do

And darling I'm
(I'm so surprised)
Oh, when I first realized
(oh, I realized)
That you were fooling me

And darling, they say that our love won't grow
But I just want to tell them that they don't know
For as long as you're in love with me
Our love will grow wider, deeper than any sea

And of all the things that I want in this whole wide world
Is just for you to say that you'll be my girl

And wooh...
(Wanting you)
Wanting you
(I'm lonely and blue)
I'm so lonely
(That's what love will do)

Somebody, anybody please bring this music back! Even though this was before my time I long for this type of music, such beautiful music.

You gotta date a Mexican from California...

@Sandy Bettis well said!

I know what you mean. I take nothing away from today's Kids but they need to "Listen" and see how it was "really" done back in the day. In The UK they create Boy Bands/Girlbands like assembly lines. If it were up to me I'd made them learn to sing these songs Doo Wop/Acapella Style and have them see how challenging it is.

They are from a different planet, if you know what I mean 😝

@Audrey hope I'm one of the people that don't like this version of the song. It's boring in my opinion. Linda Jones and Truth Hurts versions are much better in my opinion. Their vocals are so dynamic with so many layer and they do a great job at illustrating the lyrics with their vocal expressions. This song is just a drag to listen to, his vocals are just ok but there isn't anything exciting about this version at all. Just because someone doesn't like this song doesn't mean they are somehow flawed or educated, that's a very closed minded way of thinking.

There may be some love songs as good as this one but there are no love songs which are better. Spare but effective instrumentation. There is no parallel in popular music with the sublime back up vocals. You'd have to go to something like the Don Cossack singers to find this kind of incredible range. And of course Jerry Butler is off the charts.
