Everyday
Buddy Holly Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Everyday, it's a gettin' faster,
Everyone says go ahead and ask her,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)

Everyday seems a little longer,
Every way, love's a little stronger,
Come what may, do you ever long for
True love from me?

Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,
Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)

Everyday seems a little longer,
Every way, love's a little stronger,
Come what may, do you ever long for
True love from me?

Everyday, it's a gettin' closer,
Goin' faster than a roller coaster,




Love like yours will surely come my way, (hey, hey, hey)
Love like yours will surely come my way

Buddy was such a nice guy
Richie was only 17 and bought his mom a house
JP was a big boy and such a jolly Santa clause individual.
The v tail beaxh craft was a problem plane.
pilot unfamiliar with its artificial horizon.
snow storm.
plane was over weight
should have kept the flaps down.
tour should have had better management .
should have kept the flaps down and full power and not had so much cargo.
it was their laundry.
That beechcraft was a substandard aircraft and in a snowstorm late at night.
