Old Love
Eric Clapton Lyrics


I can feel your body
When I'm lying in bed
There's too much confusion
Going around through my head

And it's making me so angry
To know that the flame still burns
Why can't I get over?
And when will I ever learn?
Old love, leave me alone
Old love, go on home
Just go home

I can see your face, yes
But I know that it ain't real
It's just an illusion
Caused by how I used to feel

And it's making me so angry
I know now that the flame will always burn
It will always burn
I can't get, gonna get over?
And when will I ever learn, ever learn?

Old love, old love
leave me alone
Old love, old love
Just go on home

Old love
Just go on home, go on home

Old love
Old love
Old love
Old love
Old love
Old love
Old love

"Old Love"

I can feel your body
When I'm lying in bed
There's too much confusion
Going around through my head

And it makes me so angry
To know that the flame still burns
Why can't I get over?
When will I ever learn?

[Chorus:]
Old love, leave me alone
Old love, go on home

I can see your face
But I know that it's not real
It's just an illusion
Caused by how I used to feel

And it makes me so angry
To know that the flame will always burn
I'll never get over
I know now that I'll never learn

I can feel your body
When I’m lying in my bed
Too much confusion
Going ‘round through my head

Makes me so angry
To know that the flame still burns
Why can’t I get over?
When will I ever learn?

Old love
Leave me alone
Old love
Go on home

I can see your face
But I know that it’s not real
Just an illusion
Caused by how I used to feel

Makes me so angry
To know now that the flame will always burn
Never her over
Know now that I’ll never learn

Old love
Leave me alone
Old love
Go on home

Take me home, boys

Old love
Leave me alone
Old love
Go on home

The keyboardist's solo is simply mind-blowing. I loved it.

@S G you think so? Oh well that's sad. I wish I could share the joy, the "eargasm" I just had listening to this keyboard solo with you. Of course you're entitled to your opinion. I wish you a great day sir/ma'am.

Fats

@S G Maybe the key he played in??? The album cut has a long piano solo as well but in a different key

S G

Everyone has his or her own tastes. So I appreciate your opinion. But I think that guy ruined the atmosphere of this song. It just doesn’t fit.

@Rick S. Carmon!

The first 6 minutes of this video is perhaps the finest example of heart tugging guitar coupled with a vocal track that is gut wrenching. It lays bare the hurt and mixed feelings that a love gone wrong can do to a person. You can't go back and fix things. All you can do is try to continue to make one day after another...I think this may be the best playing and singing i've ever heard...

Only one of the best songs of all time. Doug has a grdaughter who is named Layla bcuz of Eric Clapton. Saint

Errol Torres

Watch and listen to the live version with Robert Cray and Eric Clapton on Saturday night live it is the best version of this song in my opinion easily found on YouTube

Kimberly Williams

An amazing song, hitting home for me in an obtuse way. All good no matter what side is up. Thank you!
