Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 20/05/2018

img_1345-3We have a slight change this week for Helen’s Song Lyric Sunday. Instead of the usual word prompt, we have to choose “a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”

Well, I am lucky! I can choose my First name, or my Surname.

I thought of Peter, Paul, and Mary, Peter Gabriel,   Peter and Gordon, Peter André,  Ian Matthews, without even pausing, but then decided to opt for Peters and Lee.

Lennie Peters, born Leonard Sargent, was the uncle of Charlie Watts, the Rolling Stones drummer. He was also extremely unfortunate to be blinded in one eye, in a car accident at the age of 5. As if that wasn’t enough bad luck, he lost the sight of his other eye at the age of 16.

He teamed up with Dianne Lee in 1970 and they had a successful 10 year career together.

This song was their only number 1 hit, a simple song about a reunited love.

 

Welcome Home
I’m so alone, my love without you
You’re part of everything I do
When you come back, and you’re beside me
These are the words I’ll say to you
Welcome home, welcome
Come on in, and close the door
You’ve been gone, too long
Welcome, you’re home once more
I thought of all the things I’d say to you
When you come back to me someday
When you are here and we’re together
With all my heart you’ll hear me say
Welcome home, welcome
Come on in, and close the door
You’ve been gone, too long
Welcome, you’re home once more
There are so many lonely people
Why must they ever be apart
I hope someday you’ll be together
Singing these words with all your heart
Songwriters: Bryan Blackburn / Jean Dupre / Gerard Fallec

  1. What a lovely song! I wish I’d heard the harmonies a bit better… it seemed to me that the band was way too loud. I guess that’s the joy of older music. I still really enjoyed it though, so thanks for sharing! 🙂
