Bassey, Shirley - What Now My Love Lyrics

What now my love
Now that you've left me
How can I live through another day?
Watching my dreams turn into ashes
And my hopes in to bits of clay

Once I could see
Once I could feel
Now I am none
I become unreal
I walk the night without a goal
Stripped of my heart, my soul

What now my love
Now that it's over?
I feel the world closing in on me
Here comes the stars' tumbling around me
There is the sky where the sea should be.

What now my love
Now that you're gone?
I'd be a fool to gone on and on
No one would care
No one would cry
If I should live
Or die.

What now my love
Now there is nothing?
Only my last goodbye.

Bassey, Shirley What Now My Love Comments
  1. Evil Seeds Grow Naturally

    Huh, that's odd.
    ... Where are the photographs of the dead iraqi and afghani children, torn to pieces by U.S shrapnel in the name of democracy, capitalism and "real-politiks"?

  2. Jose Marcos Alves De Lima

    Não tem como evitar a emoção de ouvir essa interpretação da Dame Shirley Bassey, ainda mais sendo no ano que eu nasci, nasci em 1962 e ela já brilhava intensamente como cantora. É realmente incomparável. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

  3. Seventies Memories

    I only knew Judy Garland's version of this song, who sadly sang it after her voice had declined. But what she could have done with it in her prime. This version realizes the potential of the song - heartbreaking.

    Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Ms. Garland was Shirley's idol when growing up, and when she became a star in her own right, they became friends. The older Judy took Shirley under her wings and gave her great advice. Shirley took Judy's advice, and her resulting achievements over the past 65 years is nothing short of outstanding. In 2001 Dame Shirley was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest selling female artist from her country, the United Kingdom. She is also the only artist who has recorded more than one James Bond soundtrack theme song. Shirley has recorded three. Anyone who takes an unbiased listen to Shirley's wealth of recordings from the 1950's until today will become a fan. She is also great to watch when she performs live. Attendees, young and old, are mesmerized by her.. Regards, Scot

    My husband is very ill with cancer & our time together is coming to an end, we don't know how long we have but whatever it is it will not be long enough. I thought I had chosen the song I wanted to have played at his funeral until I came across this version of What now My Love. We literally saw each other across a crowded room & I found myself looking into his amazing eyes. That was 35 years ago but I still remember how I felt the first time I saw him. What now my Love 💔💔💔💔💔

    Crystalclear Skies

    My world ended this morning at 9.50am 💔

    Loretta Pierce

    @Crystalclear Skies So sorry to hear that God bless you

    Arlene Cerf

    Crystalclear Skies So sorry to hear that. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Stay strong and May God always bless you xxx

    Nelson's basis for his super arrangement was, of course, Ravel's Bolero.

    mike clarke

    I thought it was .. thanks for mentioning

    Paul Geidel

    Yes! You're definitely right. I read somewhere that Ravel had a "private program" for Bolero, and it is really about a suicide - like this song.
    I only remember a few details: the trombone solo, with the glissandos is when the man drinks to try to forget his sorrows. When the music suddenly jumps to E major, that's when he opens the window to his high-rise apartment and climbs out. The dissonant trombone glissandos near the end are the screams of people on the ground who see him on the ledge, and the final rapid downward scale - well, that's pretty clear.
    I don't think too many people know about this (and I suppose I'm not 100% sure it's true), but I wonder if Nelson Riddle did.
    (BTW, just played Tchaikovsky's 4th in NYC. Great piece.)

    This song was a mega-hit, covered by just about anyone who could sing. I had at least 5 different versions, by singers such as Jim Nabors, Cher, and Sinatra. Can not recall who else. I made a mash up of all the different singers back in the day, with a little reel to reel tape recorder. Sent it to my brother in Viet Nam. Hearing Shirley sing it again brings back a lot of memories.

    Teripie You have Elvis Presley very good by the way. Andy Williams to.

  13. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Fans: Dame Shirley Bassey will be appearing at the 2013 Academy Awards Show on February 24th. She will headline the 50th James Bond anniversary! Wonderful News!

  14. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    Perfectly understandable. But in this case, I'm reflecting what I believe this song is about. I find that so many people listen to this song, they hear the words, they love the beat, but what the song is about really doesn't sink in until one sees pictures to the words. But, I perfectly understand that this is a very sad song, and your preference to a happy song. The next will be a happy one, I promise...(I guess, the song 'Born to Lose' won't be my next one...haha)

  15. Shirley Bassey Music and Vids

    4everyoung447: I just read your comment and I'm sorry to hear about your two losses in such a short period of time. My mom is almost in her 80's now, and I dread the day. But, to lose your child....just awful, unbearable, and so sad.
