"Dedicated To The One I Love" as written by and Ralph Bass Lowman Pauling....
While I'm far away from you my baby
I know it's hard for you my baby
Because it's hard for me my baby
And the darkest hour is just before dawn

Each night before you go to bed my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me my baby
And tell all the stars above
This is dedicated to the one I love
(Love can never be exactly like we want it to be)

I could be satisfied knowing you love me
(And there's one thing I want you to do)
(Especially for me)
And it's something that everybody needs

While I'm far away from you my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me my baby
Because it's hard for me my baby
And the darkest hour is just before dawn

If there's one thing I want you to do especially for me
Then it's something that everybody needs

Each night before you go to bed my baby
Whisper a little prayer for me my baby
And tell all the stars above
This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated (to the one I love)
This is dedicated to the one I love
This is dedicated (to the one I love)
This is dedicated
This is dedicated

    General Commentthis is such an adorable song. this person is telling their significant other to pray for them, i think because without their significant other they feel alone and vulnerable - it's like he or she is saying you pray for me and i'll pray for you because we love each other and 'it's something that everybody needs'
    it starts so slow and ends really high, great piano in the background

    General Commenti love this song!! i originally had it by the Shirelles, but when i saw that the mamas and the papas had a version i had to listen to it and, as expected, it was amazing. i think it's such a great song about long distance relationships (or any relationship really when there is time spent apart).

    General CommentThe line 'The darkest hour is just before dawn' stands out for me somehow. Kind of comforting for anyone who's feeling down that things will get better.
