"Send Her My Love" as written by Jonathan Cain and Steve Perry....
It's been so long
Since I've seen her face
You say she's doin' fine
I still recall
A sad cafe

How it hurt so bad to see her cry
I didn't want to say good-bye...

Send her my love, memories remain
Send her my love, roses never fade
Send her my love

The same hotel, the same old room
I'm on the road again
She needed so much more
Than I could give

We knew our love could not pretend
Broken hearts can always mend


Callin' out her name I'm dreamin',
Reflections of a face I'm seein'
It's her voice
That keeps on haunting me

Send her, send her my love
Roses never fade
Memories remain
Send her, send her, my love

    General Commenteven soft rock can ROCK! great song off the Frontiers album(1983). very slow,haunting song. only Steve Perry can sing stuff like this, and i can't believe no one's fucking commented on this.

    heavy on the keyboards (nice work Johnathan Cain), but hey it was the 80s.

    Neal Schon is the fucking MAN. man he KILLS on that solo.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song. You can almost feel the pain of whoever wrote the song by the words and by Steve Perry's voice. (I believe steve perry was cowriter) I would like to know the background of the song like if it was written about someone specifically. The song reminds me of a breakup I had where we still loved each other but just couldnt be together.

    General CommentIMO this is one of the most under-rated power ballads ever to be written. Send Her My Love reminds me of my first girlfriend, we broke up after 7 months because of the distance. I don't think Steve Perry wrote this song for anyone specific, however he puts so much emotion into the song, you can't help but wonder, especially on the last verse: "Calling out her name I'm dreaming, reflections of her face I'm seeing, it's her voice that keeps on haunting me".

    General Comment...about the singers inner turmoil about having to leave a girl who could not deal with the style of life he chose to live... being on the road... being away for so long.
