Why Does Love Got to Be So Sad
Derek and the Dominos Lyrics


Got to find me a way
To take me back to yesterday.
How can I ever hope to forget you?
Won't you show me a place
Where I can hide my lonely face?
I know you're going to break my heart if I let you.

[Chorus]
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?

Like a moth to a flame,
Like a song without a name,
I've never been the same since I met you.
Like a bird on the wing,
I've got a brand new song to sing,
I can't keep from singing about you.

[Chorus]

I'm beginning to see
What a fool you've made of me.
I might have to break the law when I find you.
Stop running away;
I've got a better game to play,
You know I can't go on living without you.

[Chorus]

If you can tear yourself away from the magnificent guitar playing for a moment, you'll find Jim Gordon absolutely kills it on the drums here.

@lorraine costanzo They were operating on alcohol and cocaine too!

The way Gordon keeps the top-end so Dynamic without interfering with things while maintaining that solid bottom through most of the song and then when he picks up the kick intensity during the guitar solo(s) to add bottom to keep the song together so that the song doesn't degrade into a Madness of guitar solos is just amazing... it's astonishing the skill level of that man...
