Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 13/05/2018

img_1345-3“Heart” is the theme for Helen’s songs this week.

My mind immediately went back to the 1960’s (I can recall those times far more easily than yesterday, or last week!), and to Cilla Black with “Anyone who had a heart.” Then I listened to it, and was reminded how strident Cilla’s voice was. So, for plan B, I went to the original version by Dionne Warwick. Much nicer in my opinion. See what you think.

If you want to compare, here is Cilla Black’s version:

“Anyone Who Had A Heart”
Anyone who ever loved
Could look at me
And know that I love you
Anyone who ever dreamed
Could look at me
And know I dream of you

Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart 
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn’t really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
What am I to do?

Every time you go away
I always say
“This time it’s goodbye, dear”
Loving you the way I do
I take you back
Without you I’d die, dear

Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart 
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn’t really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
What am I to do?

Knowing I love you so
Anyone who had a heart 
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn’t really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
Anyone who had a heart would love me, too
Anyone who had a heart 
Would surely take me in his arms and always love me
Why won’t you?
Anyone who had a heart would love me, too, yeah
Anyone who had a heart 
Would surely take me in his arms and always love me
Why won’t you, yeah
Anyone who had a heart would love me, too
Anyone who had a heart 
Would surely take me in his arms and always love me
