♫ Always ♫

I can’t believe I haven’t already played this one, but according to my search through the music archives, I have not.

Always is a song by American R&B band Atlantic Starr.  Atlantic Starr began in Greenburgh, New York with trumpeter Duke Jones, drummer Porter Carroll Jr., bassist Clifford Archer, percussionist and flautist Joseph Phillips, Sheldon Tucker, and three brothers: David Lewis, Wayne Lewis, and Jonathan Lewis.  

This was written by the three Lewis brothers, and I’m afraid I have little to no information about the origins of the song other than that the brothers brought this to a 1982 album session, but it didn’t get included because the producer didn’t think it would fit in with their other songs. It ended up being their biggest hit.  Go figure!  The song hit #1 in Canada and the U.S., and #3 in the UK.

Always
Atlantic Starr

Girl you are to me, all that a woman should be
And I dedicate my life to you always
A love like yours is grand
It must have been sent from up above
And I know you’ll stay this way, for always

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be you and me, hey
Ooh your life is sun
Chasing all of the rain away

When you come around you bring brighter days
You’re the perfect one
For me and you, forever we’ll be
And I will love you so for always

Come with me my sweet
Let’s go make a family
And they will bring us joy, for always

Oh boy I love your soul
I can’t find enough ways to let you know
But you can be sure of course, for always

And we both know, that our love will grow
And forever it will be you and me
Ooh, your life is sun
Chasing all of the rain away
When you come around you bring a brighter days
You’re the perfect one
For me, and you forever will be
And I will love you so for always

Oh, you’re like the sun chasing all of the rain away
When you come around you bring brighter days
You’re the perfect one
For me, and you forever will be
And I will love you so for always
Ooh, ooh
I will love you so, for always

  1. Jill, I thought you might be going further back in time to this song by Irving Berlin. Patsy Cline and many others have sung this one. Keith

    ‘ll be loving you always
    With a love that’s true always
    When the things you plan
    Need a helping hand
    I will understand
    Always, always.

    Days may not be fair always
    That’s when I’ll be there always
    Not for just an hour
    Not for just a day
    Not for just a year
    But always.

    Days may not be fair always
    That’s when I’ll be there always
    Not for just an hour
    Not for just a day
    And not for just a year
    But always…
