Unchained Melody

Remember ‘Unchained Melody’ by the Righteous Borthers? This song is a classic. It’s slow and melodious. There are quite a few versions of this number so it’s difficult to really narrate the origins and intentions of the song. Whatever the history, this song is undeniably beautiful. It’s one of those numbers you play at the end of a party when you have people above 25, who can appreciate melody and good music around you. You can slow dance to it or just sip on your choice of poison reminiscing about life et all. 😉

Unchained Melody – Poem by Ruelha

You are my melody.
You are my ecstacy.
I hunger for you.
But, what can I do?
Time passes me by.
And all I do is cry.
Because I need you.
But I haven't a clue.
About how you feel today.
Do you think of me the same way?

Baby, I need your love.
To envelope me like a glove.
I want to be surrounded.
Instead, I'm dumb-founded.
I don't know how you feel.
I don't understand the deal.
I'll accept the crumbs that I get.
Even change my entire mindset.
Because I hunger so much.
For just one touch.

Like a lonely river, I meet the sea.
That is where I want to be.
Wait for me; someday.
There'll be no grey.
I'll be coming home.
Wait for my return.
God speed your love only to me.
Reciprocate and you won't be lonely.
You are my melody.
The one I sing breathlessly.

Time has not spared.
So much that makes me scared.
What can I say darling!
Apart, I've been suffering.
It's been a long, lonely time.
Can I begin to call you mine?
My unchained melody.
Full of complexity!
Are you still mine?
Or would that be out of line?

Lyrics of Unchained Melody

Woah, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea, yeah
Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me
Woah, my love, my darling
I've hungered, hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
And time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

    1. So let it be song;
      And let it be dance.
      Let’s all breathe long;
      And take a chance.
      Because living like a ghost.
      Is like waiting to toast.
      When the banquet and wine.
      Is breathing in precious time.

      Btw, 1989 huh? Lovely couple indeed

        in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

        “So let it be song;
        And let it be dance.
        Let’s all breathe long;
        And take a chance. (Now)
        Because living like a ghost.
