Lyrics

MY MELODY
MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY

VERSE 1
SOMETIMES IN THE QUIET OF A LONG AND LONELY NIGHT,
SHE WHISPERS IN MY EAR THE WORDS OF HEAVENLY DELIGHT,
FRIGHTENED BY A SUDDEN WIND SHE CLINGS TO ME SO TIGHT,
MY MELODY, MY MELODY.

VERSE 2
ONE DAY IN THE SUNSHINE WE WERE TRADING THOUGHTS,
SHE TOLD ME OF A MAN WHO DIED UPON A CROSS,
WAS HIS LIFE WORTH GIVING UP AT SUCH A COST?
MY MELODY, PLEASE TELL ME.

CHORUS
SPEAK TO ME OF DAYS GONE BY,
WHEN MEN WERE BROTHERS AND RELIED ON GOD ABOVE,
FOR PEACE AND LOVE, MY MELODY, PLEASE TELL ME.
SPEAK TO ME OF DAYS TO COME,
WHEN SORROWS AND TEARS WILL BE UNDONE,
AND WE CAN LIVE IN HARMONY.
MY MELODY, PLEASE TELL ME.

BRIDGE
SINCE YOU RAISED THE QUESTION:
“WHAT’S THE PRICE OF PEACE?
HOW MANY HEARTS MUST BE BROKEN,
BEFORE ALL CONFLICTS CEASE?”

INTERLUDE
La la la la; la la; la la la la.
La la; la la; la la; la la la la-ah-aah.

REPEAT VERSE 1
SOMETIMES IN THE QUIET OF A LONG AND LONELY NIGHT,
SHE WHISPERS IN MY EAR THE WORDS OF HEAVENLY DELIGHT.
FRIGHTENED BY A SUDDEN WIND SHE CLINGS TO ME SO TIGHT,
MY MELODY, MY MELODY, MY MELODY, PLEASE TELL ME.
