C is for Cherish

 I
Day 3 of the April A-Z Blog Challenge and my song today is one of the greatest love songs from the 1960's.  The song is Cherish by the Association.  It was the first song I fell in love to for the first time at age 12.  His name was Mike.  He was a neighborhood boy and a couple of years older than me.  He never gave me the time of day, but the song remembers when.  Ahhhhh, unrequited love.   I am sure there are some more of you Baby Boomers out there who have danced a few times to this wonderful song.  If you have never heard it I included a link so that you can enjoy the sweet, soulful, melodious, harmonies of The Association.  If you have heard it....then enjoy a little side trip down Memory Lane with me and have a Blessed Sunday!  Peace Out!

Cherish

Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you
Perish is the word that more than applies
To the hope in my heart each time I realize
That I am not gonna be the one to share your dreams
That I am not gonna be the one to share your schemes
That I am not gonna be the one to share what
Seems to be the life that you could
Cherish as much as I do yours
Oh I'm beginning to think that man has never found
The words that could make you want me
That have the right amount of letters, just the right sound
That could make you hear, make you see
That you are drivin' me out of my mind
Oh I could say I need you but then you'd realize
That I want you just like a thousand other guys
Who'd say they loved you With all the rest of their lies
When all they wanted was to touch your face, your hands
And gaze into your eyes
Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you
And I do cherish you
And I do cherish you
Cherish is the word
