Sammy Hagar – Two Sides Of Love

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Above/Below/Between

From his 1984 album, VOA. The song peaked at #5 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart on August 3, 1984.

 

Two Sides Of Love

You never hear about it
It’s not the thing you talk over with friends
You never see it comin’ until it begins
But something stepped in between us
It’s taken all of our time alone
In a heart broken maze
But it still is shown
So why does she cry herself to sleep at night
Why do I have to work so hard to make things right
To fall in love came nat’rally
To make it last is so hard you see
I’m caught in between the two sides of love
A kiss goodbye, a kiss hello
You wonder why she gets lonely
You’ve got to show her no doubt
She’s your one and only, yeah
A kiss goodbye, a kiss hello
You wonder why she gets lonely
You’ve got to show her no doubt
She’s your one and only, yeah
We make promises, promises
And late at night you make big plans
Someday we’ll run away
And leave the love demands, yeah
Two sides of love
Two sides of low
Two sides of love

Sammy Hagar – Give To Live

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Give/Get/Take/Receive/Send

From his 1987 album, I Never Said Goodbye. The song reached #23 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart on August 28, 1987.

Give To Live

Ooo I can see that you’ve got fire in your eyes
And pain inside your heart
So many things have come
And torn your world apart
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
If you want love
If you want love
You’ve got to give a little
If you want love
If you want faith
You just believe a little
If you want love
If you want peace
Turn your cheek a little
Oh you’ve got to give
You’ve got to give
You’ve got to give to live
An empty hand reaching out for someone
An empty heart takes so little to fill
It’s so much easier to push instead of pull
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
Don’t give up
If you want love
If you want love
You’ve got to give a little
If you want love
If you want faith
You just believe a little
If you want love
If you want peace
Turn your cheek a little
Oh you’ve got to give
You’ve got to give
You’ve got to give to live
Each man’s a country in his own right
Oh everybody needs a friend
One friend one God one country
No man can defend
Yeah
I believe in faith and destination
But so much of that ties in our own hands
But if you know what you want
Just go on out and get it
Oh baby, baby just don’t give up no, no
Ah don’t give up, yeah, yeah

Sammy Hagar – Baby, It’s You

This is my contribution to Song Lyric Sunday for Jim Adams’s blog. This week’s prompt…Baby.

From his 1982 album, Standing Hampton. The song did not chart but Standing Hampton would become Sammy’s first platinum album. I wore this album out.

Baby, It’s You

When I’m starin’ into space
You wonder what I’m thinking of
No one’s ever crossed my mind
When I’m thinking about you, my love
All my memories
My special fantasies
There’s someone I owe them to
Baby, it’s you
When I’m dreaming in my sleep
Many worlds I travel to
My soul is yours to keep
I always will return to you
Until we can fly away
Go where the angels play
Become a kiss from the sun to the day
Baby
Ooh baby, it’s you
Oh yea
Ooh baby, it’s true
Ooh baby, it’s you
Oh yea
Baby it’s you
When I’m beaming of light
So sure of myself and this place I’m in
It’s always fresh and new
That something, I’m in touch again
And it’s no mystery
How it happens to me
You’re the one I owe it to
Yea baby
Ooh baby, it’s you
Oh yea
Ooh baby, it’s true
Ooh baby, it’s you
Oh yea
Baby it’s you

Sammy Hagar – Plain Jane

From his 1979 album, Street Machine. The song never charted. One of Sammy’s best songs and it’s a shame it did not get more radio airplay. The song was written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman.

Plain Jane

She falls somewhere in-between
Levi’s and Vogue Magazine
She doesn’t paint on her face
But what she does she does with taste.
And you can call her Plain Jane
But she’s drivin’ me insane
Plain Jane – Oh yeah, you’re drivin’ me insane.
Plain Jane – Oh, let me love you baby, yeah!
She kisses with her lips so tight.
Ooh, it hit’s me just like dynamite.
Her sweet, simple innocence
Makes everyone else seem like past tense
And you can call her Plain Jane
But she’s drivin’ me insane.
Plain Jane – Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’re drivin’ me insane, oh!
Plain Jane – Heave-ho, oh, let me love you, love you, love you, love you,
Love you, love you
Takes a special kind of man.
To love and understand
My Plain Jane.
My Plain Jane – Talkin’ ’bout my baby.
My Plain Jane – Oh yea.
Plain Jane – Uh-huh, my
Plain Jane – Ain’t no body else no.
Plain Jane – Tellin’ you you’re drivin me insane.
Her smile comes on insecure.
But her eyes, they let you know for sure.
Oh, you gotta look hard and deep.
Her kind of lovein’, it don’t come cheap, no.
And you can call her Plain Jane
But she’s drivin’ me insane.
My Plain Jane – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you’re drivin’ me insane. Ow!
Plain Jane – I just, what’s so bad? I wanna love you, love you, love you,
Love you, love you, love you
Plain Jane – Ow! I’m talkin’ ’bout my
Plain Jane – Yeah, yeah, she’s my baby.
Plain Jane – See her walkin’ down the street, and I just wanna love you.
My Plain Jane – Come here baby.
Plain Jane – Now, come here baby.
Plain Jane – There ain’t nobody else, no, and I’m gonna love you, love you,
Love you, love you, love you, love you
Plain Jane – Ow!
Plain Jane – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah…

Sammy Hagar – Your Love Is Driving Crazy

From his 1982 album Three Lock Box, The song reached number 13 on Billboards Hot 100 chart in 1983. I am a big fan of Sammy’s. He did Hard rock/Metal the right way.

Your Love Is Driving Me Crazy

I don’t mind, when you act your age
It suits me fine, that you treat me like a child
And I can’t deny, when I’m with you that you
Step outside, from all those fears locked up inside
Your love is driving me crazy
Your love just takes me away
Your love is driving me crazy
Takes me all the way
What I like, is what you’ve got to offer
Just my type, I don’t mind playing on the edge
Your love is driving me crazy
Your love just takes me away
Your love is driving me crazy
Takes me all the way
Lead me to forbidden doors
You know I’m yours
Yeah you’ve got it, yeah I want it
Don’t you know it babay
Right on time, a tight fit right on the money
So sublime, hot sweet cherries on the vine
Your love is driving me crazy
Your love just takes me away
Your love is driving me crazy
Takes me all the way
Your love is driving me crazy
Your love just takes me away
Your love is driving me crazy
Your love just takes me away
Your love, your love, your love just takes me away
Your love, your love, your love just takes me away
