"Love On The Rocks" as written by Gilbert Becaud and Neil Diamond....
Love on the rocks
Ain't no surprise
Just pour me a drink and I'll tell you some lies
Got nothin' to lose so you just sing the blues
All the time

Gave you my heart
Gave you my soul
You left me alone here with nothing to hold
Yesterday's gone
Now all I want is a smile

First, they say they want you
How they really need you
Suddenly you find you're out there
Walking in a storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You've got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

You need what you need
You can say what you want
Not much you can do when the feeling is gone
May be blue skies above
But it's cold when you love's on the rocks

First, they say they want you
How they really need you
Suddenly you find you're out there
Walking in a storm
When they know they have you
Then they really have you
Nothing you can do or say
You've got to leave, just get away
We all know the song

Love on the rocks
Ain't no surprise
Just pour me a drink and I'll tell you my lies
Yesterday's gone
And now all I want is a smile

    General CommentThe song is from the Jazz Singer arock star on tour happy ,succsessful and in love then it all falls apart no one wants him fans freinds lover.
    the guy gave his all to his music heart and soul he even gave up his religion.
    It may look like everything is blue skies but it's cold inside when it's all on the rocks. SEE THE MOVIE

    General CommentI am surprised about how few people have wrote on Neil Diamond. He is one of the greatest songwriters ever!!

    This song means a lot to me right now....my gf dumped me to start school in California, and this is one of the only songs that comforts me anymore..I LOVE IT!! I feel the same exact way as the song describes.
