My Unchained Melody

                             In a fragile and nostalgic moment
                       Listening to music and words from the past
                            With tears running down my face
                      Dim lights..Unchained Melody fills the room
                         It reminds me of much needed touches
                           A time that was,and forever is gone

                      Like anyone else..I need to feel that loving aura
               Even though years has passed us by,we still have the future
             Hungry words and beautiful music will always keep me pulsating
                     Let me hold you close tonight..your body next to mine
                     Vibrating hearts..hectic rythm..passionate atmosphere
                      Let me be your Unchained Melody tonight my dear

I my opinion,Unchained Melody is the greatest song ever written.Both,lyrics as well as the music in that piece-hits my emotions each time I hear it:-)

    What a beautiful song to get your inspiration from Arild, I just love this gem of yours. As for that "painting" write of mine, I altered it a bit to move away from it being too personal. Crazy hey? ;) so glad I came across you and your gems at the Soup! love Wilma

    wow, I love how you expressed your feeling about that song and the passion it makes you feel. Certain songs just do that!! My favorite of this past year was Moves like Jagger. THe beat AND the words are so cool.

    Yup,and it HAS to be by the Righteous Brothers.Have heard a few version by other artists..sorry,but none of them gave me the goosebumps.That song takes me back to the past,but also makes me appreciate the present.Hmm..fav Elvis..his version of "Always On My Mind"!! No Doubt! Thanks for your comment pd,it means the world;-)
