Gordon Lightfoot - I Want to Hear it From You


I Want to Hear it From You

I want to hear it from you.
I want to hear it from one
Who should know how it is.
All the second-hand words
Seem to get in my way.
I want to hear it from you.
I want to hear it again.
I want to know if the soft, scented touch of your lips
Must be taken away
Like a mother's first kiss
To the life that she gives.
I want to hear it from you.
I've got a right
To get it straight from you,
To give my life
A diff'rent point of view,
To find a way
To keep from losin' you.
If you don't know what to say,
To understand is my life.
And the question is,
Why you should cry in the night
While your eyes look away
Every time that I speak
And there's nothing to say.
I want to hear it from you.
I want to hear it from you.
Let me know how you feel.
You've got to make up your mind.
Tell me where can I run
When the roof tumbles in.
I want to hear it from you.
I want to hear it from you.

I'll say it over and over. Gordon Lightfoot is a national treasure in Canada. It is impossible to be a bigger star than he is. And that's been true for 50 or so years. He's pretty much on the same level as Maurice Richard.
I created this transcription myself. After listening to the song a few times, I referred to the booklet with the lyrics that came with the CD. There isn't a lot that differs, nothing significant, anyway.
The CD is from a German label named Bear Family Records, BCD 15699. Near as I can tell, the CD was released in 1992. It consists of both of Lightfoot's third and fourth albums, "Did She Mention My Name" and "Back Here on Earth," the former released in early 1968, the latter later that same year, both of which vinyl records I still own, although I have no idea if they are even playable any more. This song is from the former album.
Here's a link to Gord's biography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Lightfoot and another to an article about the album http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Did_She_Mention_My_Name.
