Afterglow Of Your Love
Small Faces Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Love, love is all around me
Everywhere
Love has come to touch my soul
With someone who really cares
No one can deny us
People who once passed me by
Will turn their heads 'round
I'm happy just to be with you


And loving you the way I do, yeah
It's everything I need to know
Just resting in the afterglow of your love

You, yes you have always been here
Feeling deep inside
A feeling that I could not see
Or touch, or try to hide
My love is in and around you
I bless the day that I found you
So listen up baby
I'm happy just to be with you
And loving you the way I do, yeah
It's everything I need to know
Just resting in the afterglow of your love
Love is like a voice in my head
Keeps turning 'round the things that we said
I'm happy just to be with you
And loving you the way I do, yeah

It's everything I need to know
Just resting in the afterglow of your love

NIGEL WILLMOTT

IMO, The Small Faces were the most creative, diverse, imaginative and progressive band of the mid to late 60's. Never afraid to try something new (or cover something old), they were a unique band of fab musicians, fronted by the best vocalist ever - Steve Marriott.

Richard Witherow

I think I agree, or at the very least, up there in the top five.

Zane Goodeker

There was a lot of good musicians from that time. Ogden's Nut Gone Flake is pretty fucking incredible though yeah.

Sandy Pompilii

Steve Marriott....such an amazing voice. I'm still obsessed in 2022.

daz the mod

Youre not alone in that. He's up there with God on my top ten lol

ellen scavuzzo-duggan

Same here

rawchin risold

just beautiful, everything's ephemeral but the sound of a fantastic band at their youthful peak is captured here in all its glory and will be available to us all, always. A great group performance, led by Marriott's soaring heartfelt vocals, all youthful power and beauty. For a while in 1968, they were the best band in Britain, nah fuck it...the world.

Harry Minter

I believe it, I am a late comer to their work, amazing!!!!!!

Paul Lashley

I agree. Still a bunch of fans listen and always will. The music is always here for posterity. And I am still finding new music from the 60s and 70s that I didnt hear back then. And YES I. Still listen to Beatles and all of them.REAL MUSIC

losgrindos

YEP. The whole wide World - from mid '67 to mid '68 undoubtedly the greatest.
