Junie's Place: "I Honestly Love You"

"I Honestly Love You"

At the top of my play list today is a beautiful song by Olivia Newton-John!
(and a few more are also added)

There was a time in my life when Olivia was a top favorite of mine...it must have been in the early 70s when I was sooo into her music! I liked her sound which was mellow and country sounding ...but not TOO country! :) She sang the kind of songs that appealed to my romantic nature!

However, I had not played her music in a long time; but for whatever reason, today I was remembering some of her songs which I loved back in those early days. I found some of them and added them to my play list.

"I Honestly Love You" is a beautiful song - IMO -so I wanted to add the lyrics also!



I Honestly Love You

(lyrics by Jeff Barry & Peter Allen)

Maybe I hang around here
a little more than I should
We both know I got somewhere else to go
But I got something to tell you
that I never thought I would
But I believe you really ought to know

I love you
I honestly love you

You don't have to answer
I see it in your eyes
Maybe it was better left unsaid
This is pure and simple
and you should realize
That it's coming from my
heart and not my head

I love you
I honestly love you

I'm not trying to make
you feel uncomfortable
I'm not trying to make
you anything at all
But this feeling doesn't
come along everyday
And you shouldn't blow the chance
when you've got the chance to say

I love you
I honestly love you

If we both were born
in another place and time
this moment might be ending in a kiss
But there you are with yours
and here I am with mine
So I guess we'll just be
leaving it at this

I love you
I honestly love you
I honestly love you

I loved her, too, several years ago. I always thought she was so pretty and loved her with John Travolta. Great to hear her again. Thanks.
