Lyrics: I Love You

“I Love You” by The Grasshoppers, 1964

Well I saw you and you glanced at me

And I knew right away that you would always be

My only true love, and now I’ve run off the time*

I thought forever that you’d be mine

 

I love you, I love you

I love you, my love

I love you forever, ever, ever and ever

 

Well now when I saw you, love, standing in the dark

And slowly but surely you were breaking my heart

I left you with your hand* and I ran away

But I want you to know that until this day

 

I love you, I love you

I love you, my love

I love you forever, ever, ever and ever

 

Well, now rock!

 

Well I love you, I love you

I love you,  my love

I love you forever, ever, ever and ever

 

Well now say when I saw you, love, standing in the dark

And slowly but surely you were breaking my heart

I wanted to say that I love you

I knew right away that you were making me blue

 

I love you, I love you

I love you, my love

I love you forever and ever and ever

Grrr, rock!

  1. Very Beatlesque, including the singing accent! I listened to it at a slower speed which was creepy but perhaps the lyrics, “My only true love, and now I’ve run off the time*” were meant to be, “now I’ve run out of time”… he just forgot the line at that moment during recording. I think you got “I left you with your hand* and I ran away” correct. The Big 5 days! He was all of 16 or 17 years old, what a treat! Thanks for posting!

    1. Yes, I was wanting so much for it to be “run out of time” but I just didn’t hear him saying it. LOL I do the same thing — I slow the songs down and listen over and over and it gets to a point where they sound normal that way, and then when I put the setting back to regular speed I’m always kind of surprised at the quick tempo. Hahaha!

  2. Dear Donna, what a wonderful job ❤
    Great minds must think alike as I created a video to use the MP3 file I got from the seller of the actual record and added a photo of Benjamin which I added colour to and used a Tasmanian sunset shot as a backdrop to this and uploaded it just when I got home onto Youtube. I hope it is OK that I did this and does not distract from the truly orrsome work you do, I only uploaded it and made a photo, did not add lyrics. My German ear had trouble with one line 🙂
    Warmest regards
    Tia ❤

    1. I’d love to see your video! The link I posted is by someone else on youtube but I don’t know them. It was the only one I could find to the song and I wasn’t sure about making my own, either. Haha! I am planning to do “Love Me Baby” next. If you have a video for that, I’d be happy to use it (if you don’t mind). ❤

      1. Dearest Donna,
        Thank you so much, I will add a link on my page to your blog and lyrics and if Youtube allows me I will do this as well, I have done this on several items on Youtube where I suggested fans go to the link to check out information about Benjamin etc. Hope this is OK. I will get onto “Love Me Baby” , I am using a different software than I used to so it is taking me ages compared to the old one and I am not sure if I am allowed to use any photos of The Grasshoppers so I may keep it simple with just a few shots of Benjamin. I am sleep deprived today and brain is slow, so making sure, you mean the 3rd track on that MP3 file from The Grasshoppers, don’t you? I will get onto this 🙂 warmest regards and lots of love ❤

  3. PS This is the simple video I made, I had to change the file from MP3 to MP4 and just added a photo of Benjamin with an orangy sky backdrop photo I took and then added some slight colour to the black and white shot photo. Because the software is new ( 3 or so years ago I was creating videos for our musician friend with 40 or so photos and that was time consuming but I loved that software and was good with that) I had to relearn it and kept going wrong… a few German swear words were said 😉 and so I ended up only adding the one photo. I can do more for “Love Me Baby” . This is the link to the simple video I made yesterday for I Love You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOPHtdiGaFY

      1. Thank you dear Donna ❤ I tried to get it as clear as possible, felt this was the more important than photos 🙂 I will try and do the video for this tomorrow, it's almost 5pm Thursday here 🙂 if I can get it finished tomorrow I will send you the link per email 🙂
        Hugs,
        Tia
