Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

For you there'll be no crying
For you the sun will be shining
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's all right I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing like they
Know the score
And I love you I love you I love you
Like never before

To you I would give the world
To you I'd never be cold
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's all right I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing like they
Know the score
And I love you I love you I love you
Like never before like never before





Like never before
Like never before

It’s just after midnight, Nov. 02, 2021, twenty-five years after Eva’s passing, and I wanted to write this vigil post commemorating Eva’s Quadrans-Centennial Anniversary and to celebrate her “Gift of Music” she left behind for us all. To me, it is the finest music ears can hear, and I thank God for those who were insightful enough to preserve it.
I first heard Eva’s heavenly voice in Jan. of 2021, and I knew then, I’d found the Holy Grail of vocalists. Few artists ever caused me to weep hearing their music, but Eva evoked that level of emotion from me, repeatedly.
Somehow, Eva’s creative, humble spirit paired with her bold, vocal perfection made a spiritual connection with me unlike any singer/songwriter/musician before. It was like finding gold and then developing gold fever. I called it “Eva Fever.”
For the past year, I’ve dug deep into Eva’s goldmine of music, and my obsession has grown song by song, all the while finding we are kindred spirits in music and spiritual beliefs. It’s been wonderful being able to read so many stories about her, and today, I’m even more in awe of Eva’s life and her musical skills. I don’t think I’ll ever get over “Eva Fever,” nor will I ever want to.
Many thanks go out to those who’ve preserved her memory.

OMG incredible!!! Eva was only discovered after she died when her father released all her recordings. Apparently she never thought she was good enough!!!! She's incredible and died so young of cancer heart breaking !
