Listen To Me
Buddy Holly Lyrics


Listen to me and hold me tight
And you will see our love so right
Hold me darling
Listen closely to me

Your eyes will see what love can do
Reveal to me your love so true
Listen to me,
Listen closely to me
I've told the stars you're my only love
I want to love you tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet, sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day
Hold me darling,
Listen closely to me

Listen to me
Listen, listen
Listen to me

I've told the stars you're my only love
I want to love you tenderly
Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet, sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say
Our hearts can be nearer each day
Hold me darling,
Listen closely to me

Buddy Holly

An interesting fact:

look almost just like him. I’m from Texas, have a bit of a similar voice, and play guitar and some other instruments. I remember singing a while ago and my parents and everybody said I reminded them of Buddy Holly. Then my parents looked at my family tree. There he was. On my family tree. I’m also same religion as him. I’m a baptist he was too. And I realized that my father looked like buddy too. I am happy to be related to him. I impersonate him

Some information about Buddy Holly:

Buddy Holly was only 22 when he died and sang since he was around 13. He was in a country and western duo with bob Montgomery for a while then he joined the crickets in late 1957. They had good songs together, such as, Oh Boy!, Peggy Sue, That’ll be the day, Everyday, and words of love. He was no doubt great at a lot. I don’t like him because he’s my relative, I like him because he has talent. I was a fan of him before I figured out I was related to him. But his band was mainly friends but he had his 3rd cousin by marriage join. Niki Sullivan was in there but then quit because he wasn’t a fan of the traveling. Then it was stuck with Buddy Holly, Joe B Mauldin, and Jerry Allison. Then the crickets got in a argument because Buddy wanted to record in New York. But Jerry and joe wanted to stay in Clovis New Mexico. Also Joe and Jerry were drinking a little bit. Then Buddy on a tour that took his life along with Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper. Maria Elena Holly had a miscarriage and lost the baby. She was devastated and she never remarried again. February 3rd 1959 was then nicknamed The Day The Music Died. And there is some theories that Buddy shot The Big Bopper but there was no way it was possible for Buddy, Ritchie, or The Big Bopper to live. The last thing I want to say is....

Listen to me and hold me tight
And you will see our love so right
Hold me darling, listen closely to me

Your eyes will see what love can do
Reveal to me your love so true

Those same bright stars in heaven above
Know now how sweet sweethearts can be

Listen to me, hear what I say

So far ahead of his time. Holly was a genius and one can only imagine what he would have done.

Even after all these years, no one better.

Buddy inspired nearly all the bands from the 50s right through the 60s and 70s and up to today
God Bless you Buddy
