Buddy Holly - Because I Love You Lyrics

Well they say what you don't know won't hurt you
And I believe that it's so
So don't tell me that you found someone new
To go thru life with you

Because I love you my darling, my dearest I love you
You're the one I want nearest, may I love you
And I will bet you love me too

Oh, I'd rather die thinking you love me
Than to go on thru life without you
And you with someone new
To go thru life with you

Well, because I love you, I love you, my darling
My dearest I love you, I love you
You're the one I want nearest, may I love you, I love you
And I will bet you love me too

Oh, I'd rather die thinking you love me
Than to go on thru life without you
And you with someone new
To go thru life with you

  37. nico van kampen

    grat music i enjoy it every day back to the 60's

  38. Jorge Mario Rodas

    Nearly sixty years later his songs are still good to hear.   A very talented Singer who sang with feeling and depth.  Too bad he was lost on that airplane accident in February 1959.  Worse still both the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens died that day on the same accident.

    Steve Gross

    Jorge Mario Rodas "I totally agree"

    Dale Deimel

    It all changed a generation. It just did. Beatles, Stones. They we all love that music.

  39. Thomas Haverstock

    Buddy is one of the greatest Rock stars on the planet

    Music & Games

    I agree...

  40. Steve Gross

    Im one of the greatists buddy holly followers, its amazing the number of recordings he made in his short life!


    I am also, to the best of my knowledge I have all his recorded works, and any that he has any involvement with. However I am always looking for others that have slipped past me.

    Steve Gross

    Lancastrian care to share any.?

    Steve Gross

    Any chance you could make copies? I would pay!!!

  41. P.J.W.Chicagoguy

    He should have done more songs like this.This is too good.

  42. MrXtsForLife 4972

  49. Tonny Versijp

    dit is zweven!

  50. Lily Vivianna

    My friends always pick on me for loving 50's and 60's music, but when i hear the music they listen to, I'm glad to have grown up listening to this great artist who will always be one of the best in my eyes. Rest in peace Charles "Buddy" Hardin Holley (Holly).

    Ryan The Prophet

    stick to the 50s and 60s music that's the best music


    We could really "slow dance" to this.

    Pam H

    Some friends! You have better taste. Who do they listen to?


    You are perceptive and have good taste.

    Caress of Stars

    By picking on you, the only thing they prove is their lack of hearing.

    In those good ol' times, artists needed to show talent, knowledge and some thoughts/emotions to communicate if they wanted to be famous. How can it be that our old friend Charles Hardin still touches so many souls? He hasn't been around for 60 years, but the music is still alive, timeless and so incredibly harmonic. And honest.
    Without pioneers like Buddy Holly, there would be no modern rock, punk or pop music to-day.

  51. freddy wessels

    this is a super wearly cool sng from him

  52. Ana Torres

  72. Inspire,a Glimpse

    shame we cant send them up 

  73. Tonny Versijp

    Ook weer zo een speciaal zweefnummer !

  74. Lancastrian

    Thanks I would like to upload a lot more musical tracks but I have been told by 'YouTube' that I have been a naughty boy and been warned about uploading copyrighted stuff. Oh Well!

  75. Lancastrian

    Yes I certainly go back quite a while I remember the birth of Rock.n.Roll amongst other things.

  76. Lancastrian

    Hi, No apologies necessary except maybe from me to say sorry to disappoint you but I am not Ringo, nor a member of any of musical group.

  77. Lancastrian

    You had put quite a lot of thought into my 'name' I must admit I hadn't gone into the same depth, but I can see now how you came up the variations. With regards to your comment referring to 'Ringo' Liverpool is actually in the historic county of Lancashire. so he is a Lancastrian. Merseyside is only an administrative county it's not a true county. Incidentally no doubt you have gathered but I am also a railway buff both models and full size.

  78. PA10403

    1963 version???

  79. jsmusak

    One of my favourite Buddy Holly tracks - superb and timeless. What a talent!

  80. Mitch C.

    The forever brilliant Buddy Holly..What a Gem this song is..

  81. Hans Rooze

    Wat een geweldig nummer hier begon bij mij alles mee.

  82. Agnes van Dam

    Wat een geweldig nummer ! Heerlijke herinneringen ( 1968 Vivaldilaan)

  83. Semper Fidelis

    magnifique chanson d'un grand rocker trop tôt disparu .

  84. joetake holly

    there we go yet another great buddy track,omg this song is something else what a talent this great man had .buddy holly I will never stop playing your music you had talent to no end ]

  85. richard pitcher

    yeah im a 90's kid and i think this is a great time to live, i mean i dont have to wait like 60 years for all this great music to be created and released, i have it all at my fingertips and im able to discover so much more music then anyone back in the 60's could have and its all thanks to the internet and youtube.

  86. Leonnie Hirst

    Don't regret your life. I was born in the late 40's and did rock'n'roll to these fantastic people, still do. I also enjoy some of today's talent and with time they may mature into heroes of music. You can enjoy 60 years of fantastic music using todays technology.

  87. Victor Pena

    Maybe it was his destiny to die young. That is why he had so many recordings at such a young age.

  88. Susie196921

    Buddy had a sexy and romantic voice!

  89. RAMLIA1


  90. Lancastrian

    Many Thanks :)

  91. Lancastrian

    Ha Ha, yes I remember him well, I go back quite a way :)

  92. Lancastrian

    No not at all. sorry if I gave that impression. My meaning was that there are lots of people that only know of his greatest hits and are missing so much of his lesser known excellent music.

    Hope that this is accepted by way of an apology should I have given the wrong impression to you.

  93. Lancastrian

    I gather from your comments that you like this track and also Love is Strange :) .There are many excellent tracks from Buddy unfortunately most people only know his 'Greatest Hits'

  94. kapstereen
