Simone de - I'll Come Running"

Simone de has created an absolutely beautiful song to the melody of one of my favorite Johnnie Taylor records.  His voice is so pretty and this song will make you fall in love all over again.  I'll come running back to you if you come back to me....  So beautiful!!!

I never understood
Why our love wasn’t so good
After trying so hard to get along
Yet we managed oh to break up
Our love we couldn’t wake up
Where did it go girl
All the love that we shared

There were times you did me wrong
Yet I walked away oh I would never do you harm
We used to fuss and fight girl
All the day and night through

But I’ll come running back to you if you come back to me
I’ll come running back to you if you come back to me

I always tried to do good
Tried to do the best that I could
Nothing could please you girl
In spite of all I do
I know you’re seeing
Oh you’re seeing someone else
Go on and help yourself
I’m trying to tell you girl
Don’t let the green grass fool, don’t let it fool you
In his arms he wants to hold
Everything, everything that glitters just ain’t gold
I still love you girl
I hope you still love me, too
I hope you love me, too


It’s hard trying to get along
I can’t make it on my own
What happened girl, can I hear it coming from you


My favorite line - "I hope you still love me, too, I hope you love me, too!"
I'm going to get to the Mobile area one of these days to
see this beautiful man in concert!
