Another lovers touch song version

Listen to poem:
Another lover's touch There's never been a love, that's ever been enough... You keep searching for... another lover's touch Why do I even try, I should stop wasting time... You say that we are fine... we both know that's a lie Chorus I can see the ending, in our book of love... Well I try and I try and I try, but it's not enough... I see the curtain falling on our romantic play.... I never thought our love ... would end this way I remember that first look, the first chapter of our book... We thought we'd found a love that would never die The days turned into weeks, so many nights without sleep... The love we felt was an unrelenting fire Chorus I can see the ending, in our book of love... Well I try and I try and I try, but it's not enough... I see the curtain falling on our romantic play.... I never thought our love... would end this way Chorus I can see the ending, in our book of love... Well I try and I try and I try, but it's not enough... I see the curtain falling on our romantic play.... I never thought our love... would end this way There's never been a love, that's ever been enough... You keep... searching... for another... lover's... touch. John Derek Hamilton November 22,2019 re-posted with music and vocals January 27,2021 Copyright © John Hamilton | Year Posted 2019

Hi Charlotte I'm glad you enjoyed the song, it is one of six that I have had produced, I've been writing songs since the 80's, it comes easily to me, more so than poetry. My pleasure to give your poem top place, I am always so impressed with your writing. Thanks for your kind visit!

Thanks Andrea, no I don't sing well enough for recording so the singer is in a band in San Francisco, he's pretty good right? Thanks for your support!

John, from the potd link I didn't see the audio file. Now that I've heard it, I like it twice as much; very emotive and melancholy. Great job, songwriter! ~ John

Your words and the music meld together to create a moving piece that most all of us can relate to at some time in our lives. The singer you chose did a wonderful job bringing out the deep emotions felt by heartbreak. A wonderful achievement John! I am so happy for you. Songwriting isn’t as easy as most would think. Congratulations on your POTD honors. I wish you much success with your future with it, as it is timeless in content. I am Faving it. Blessings xxoo
