Song Lyric Sunday – Romantic Love Songs


For Song Lyric Sunday, we were asked to find the love song that spoke to us. For me, it is Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” written, in 1972, by Dolly Parton. My friends, my best friends, will know why this song speaks to me. Here are the lyrics to the song. You can hear the song from the video at the bottom of the page:

“I Will Always Love You”

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I’ll go but I know
I’ll think of you every step of the way

And I… will always love you, ooh
Will always love you
My darling, you…

Bittersweet memories –
That is all I’m taking with me.
So good-bye.
Please don’t cry:
We both know I’m not what you, you need

And I… will always love you
I… will always love you
You, ooh

[Instrumental / Sax solo]

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of
And I wish you joy and happiness
But above all this I wish you love

And I… will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you
I will always love you

I will always love you
I, I will always love you.

Darling, I love you.
I’ll always…
I’ll always love you.

  1. Such a classic! I’ve always loved both versions of the song because they are so completely different, but you can’t deny that Whitney is a power house. Thanks so much for playing along! 🙂
