You Take My Breath Away
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away
You watch my love grow like a child
Sometimes gentle and sometimes wild
Sometimes you just take my breath away

And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there just to use
I'm gonna stand up on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away

Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away
Your beauty is there in all I see
And when I feel your eyes on me
Oh don't you know you just take my breath away

And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there just to use
I'm gonna stand up on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away

And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there just to use
I'm gonna stand up on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away

Oh yes you take my breath away

Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away
You watch my love grow like a child
Sometimes gentle and sometimes wild
Sometimes you just take my breath away
And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there
Just to use
I'm gonna stand on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away
Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away
Your beauty is there in all I see
And when I feel your eyes on me
Oh don't you know you just take my breath away
And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there
Just to use
I'm gonna stand on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away
And it's too good to slip by
Too good to lose
Too good to be there
Just to use
I'm gonna stand on a mountain top
And tell the news
That you take my breath away



HIGH PIT WILMA

Hendrik,when I first set eyes on my Wife at the then local roller skating rink,as I walked in through the doors,she was among a hundred skaters, all going around the floor,in anti-clockwise direction.
As I looked around on entering the building at lots of lovely girls,one skater caught my eye,and I knew that second as I watched her go by..she would be mine!
The following week,I didn't go...the week after that...I did go...and I took my girl home....met her Mother that night...went for my tea the next Saturday afternoon,as was customary,a long time ago,in the Coalmining communities,in Northumberland U.K....[in 1962]
I was 17 yrs old,my girl was 16 yrs old,we were both like-minded ,in music,walking,chatting,etc..
We were courting five years,have been married fifty-two years,and she is STILL the one I look at with the same feelings I had when I met her 57 years ago!
In my part of the world we say "I dote on her"!
You and me are both touched by Eva's beautiful voice and guitar playing.
When I watch Eva playing and singing,I wish I could play the way she does effortlessly,and I have played guitar 60 years!
Kindest regards to you and your Wife,Hendrik.

Eva Cassidy was the lead singer for a band that I and my wife-to-be hired for our wedding reception in the fall of 1986 (years before she was famous). We had booked them months in advance -- not because she was famous, that would come at least 10 years later -- but because that's what you did, planning a wedding. (I wanted to hire Root Boy Slim, but Donna said, "No frickin' way." The band cost $700, including the agent's fee, and it had broken up by the time we got married.. But they were good to their commitment. Eva showed up in a cast (broken leg) and sang every song sitting down. They rocked that Hilton ballroom in Fairfax County, and she blew away every one of our guests. None of you have ever heard her sing, "Ain't to Proud to Beg," but I have, because she did at our reception, and I have a video to prove it. RIP Eva, you were amazing then and now!

@comkid very nicely said.

You can digitize the vhs recording.

Versus “Ain’t too Proud to be Fat”?

I am absolutely sure we have mutual friends.

What a story. It is rather sad that Eva only became well-known in the UK after her death. The radio presenter Terry Wogan told the story of how his producer raved about this singer called Eva Cassidy singing Somewhere over the Rainbow, and of course of her illness and sad passing. Terry listened to Eva's beautiful voice and played her song on the radio and the viewers went wild wanting to know more about this girl with the beautiful voice. Before long, Eva was Number 1 in the British charts. A well-deserved honour but tinged with sadness that Eva was not around to enjoy her success, but there again, would she have liked it.

She is the queen of tears, millions cry to her songs, she is The Openerer Of Closed Hearts, she holds my loneliness with her voice, I can bear it, with St.Eva in my ears.

Milica Adamovic

I cry generally from childhood hearing wonderful music and voice!

Rong Li

Mesmerised by her voice and your words.
