Maybe it’s You-The Carpenters 1979


Maybe it’s You-The Carpenters 1979

One of my favorite Carpenters song is ‘Maybe It’s You’. The album that this track was on, ‘Greatest Hits’, was my first album I got. I remember dancing around the living room to ‘Top of the World’ and singing along to ‘Sing’. . . la la la la la la, my nickname. I used to listen to those two songs only, practically, but now, six years later I listen to all of them.

This song is one of my new discovers. I especially love the melody.

I imagine singing to it.

I would sing. . .

Maybe it’s you

Maybe it’s me

Maybe it’s just the constant rhythm of the sea

Maybe it’s just that I’ve never been

The kind who can pass a lucky penny by

Maybe it’s wise

Maybe it’s not

Maybe it’s you who brought the caring I’d forgot

Isn’t it nice to talk about the special way

That you smile whenever I’m around

Rising on the shore

The ocean came

Walks along the waves of velveteen

His only thought

Was love for me

Couldn’t we stay?

Or must we go

Couldn’t we stay?

And watch the splashing rock we throw

Only a fool would want to leave this paradise

That I find whenever you’re around

Only a fool

Isn’t it nice to talk about the special way

That you smile whenever I’m around

Rising on the shore

The ocean came

Walks along the waves of velveteen

His only thought

Was love for me

Couldn’t we stay?

Or must you go

Couldn’t we stay?

And watch the splashing rocks we throw

Only a fool would want to leave the paradise

That I find whenever you’re around

Only a fool

Only a fool
