A truly great song...



just because the lyrics are brilliant,
and the soaring sounds spectacular.
Trust me.
It's not all about you.

Fourth song, side 2.
Greg Lake's voice was never more mellifluous.
Side 2 itself is a tour de force.
Keith Emerson takes the keyboards to new heights on Side 1.
I can pass on Carl Palmer almost any day.
Side 4, when the mood is right, navigates the soul properly.

Nobody Loves You Like I Do
Emerson, Lake & Palmer

(Lake, Sinfield)

You can rent your blues and photograph your soul
You can even dig some diamonds out of rock’n roll
You can change the world
But if you lose control
They will take away your T-shirt.

And when you lose your reason and there’s no release
You can buy seclusion but you can’t buy peace
You got everything but the golden fleece
And a shepherd for your sadness
Now I don’t expect your sympathy
This is what and where I want to be
For as long as my blood runs
Love comes and goes
God knows
Nobody loves you like I do
No no no nobody loves you like I do
It comes unrelentless
I’ve tried so hard to prevent this
But nobody loves you like I do.

There are highway dreams in my head tonight
I can’t breathe without you and I’m losing height
I don’t need a periscope or second sight
To see nothing lasts forever
With a planet stare and a guiding star
You can only be what you think you are
If I didn’t approve it remove it
I’m coming through
Oh nobody loves you like I do
And I’m dirty, mean and unworthy
This is true
But if somebody says he loves you
From all sides out here above you
Believe me nobody loves you like I do.

For you know I will love you sweet and strong
I will love you full, I will love you long
I will love you right even better wrong - tonight
Tonight.

Nobody loves you like I do
I can’t make it, shake it or break it without you
And if you pause at my insistence
I’ll be yours from any distance
So you see, nobody loves you like I do...

Nobody loves you like I do
I said nobody loves you like I do
It comes unrelentless
I’ve tried so hard to prevent this
But nobody loves you like I do
I said nobody loves you
I said nobody loves you
I said nobody loves you like I do...
