"Unchained Melody" as written by and A. North H. Zaret....
Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

    General CommentOk...this song is a different meaning for me...ok not different but it makes me tear up each time i hear it. The day my boyfriend left to go to Kuwait....i talked to him for a half hour before he left then you know i cried...but when i got in the car to go to work...this song came on and it just made me cry more because of what he says "time goes by so slowly, and time can do so much are you still mine?" "lonely rivers sigh wait for me, i'll be coming home wait for me" it was almost like it was meant to be sung to me from my boyfriend. but he didnt sing it to me so...eh..but it still makes me sad when i hear it cause i miss him so damn much

    General CommentThis song describes me perfectly. My girlfriend decided that we needed to go on a break for 3 months, and all I want is to be back with her.
