I wrote this song in March of 1991, between episodes of breast cancer. Rich and I were long since together, and we had married that previous December. To me, this is about determination, and it’s a song I wished I could have written much earlier. It is a song for all who are still looking for true love in this maddening world.
Lyrics to Love of My Life
words and music by Donna W. Hill
3/12/91, Col. #10, 1991
No matter how long it takes me,
I’m gonna keep right on looking for you,
Yeah, you, Love of my life,
No matter how far away it makes me go,
I’m gonna keep right on going for you,
Yeah, you, Love of my life.
House full of strangers, street full of fools,
Ignoring all the dangers and breaking all the rules,
Here in the free world, more and more it seems,
You can go with the flow, if you want to, And drown in the mainstream.
Pounding the pavement day after day,
So many people with nothing much to say,
Caught in a maze without any clue,
If I weren’t looking for you, what would I be doing?
I know you’re out there just like me,
Searching for someone who’s willing to be,
Shoulder to shoulder, partners and friends,
We might find each other just around the next bend.
