Cooke, Sam - Unchained Melody Lyrics

O, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
Times goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
Wait for me, wait for me
I'll be coming home, wait for me

O, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
Times goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love
God speed your love to me

  9. Terry Chandler

    Sam Cooke what a voice just think if he were white all the thumbs would be up, but who cares we still have Sam and all they have is hate and envy.

  10. Nunu Loser

    Nobody sung this like Mike Yung sorry Sam I still love u rest up

  14. John Steele

    Just the best singer ever.

  15. michael george

    Sam sings this song like he does with all of his songs with great passion.

  16. Lyn Procopio

    beautiful. so beautiful.

  17. kacenoroyal

    A wonderful rendition from this genius, I thoroughly enjoyed his take. Bobby Hatfield's version is still my favorite but his version gives a new perspective & feeling of this most beautiful song. Both died tragically.. May they Rest in Peace 💔💔

  18. Terry Chandler

    The great Sam Cooke touched this song like no other his vocals made it possible for all of us to travel on his journey and once again I am transformed into a passenger on a trip and the pilot is God's messenger the one and only Sam Cooke the shooting star. I thank you!

  19. LoveH 123

    Bumblebee movie brought me here

  20. Jenni Duc

    Wow 💙

  21. Sheryl Iheanachor

    rest my dear...we miss you

  22. Nicholas Grayson

    His voice inspires and touches your soul to this day. There's been little notoriety, no big Hollywood films, no reinvestigation of his murder.... Truly an injustice and tragic end to such an iconic figure in music, and more importantly his stance for equality. Things have improved since then but we still have so much hatred in this world. One day people will realize we don't "have" a soul, we have a body... We ARE that soul. When you consider the title "King of Soul" there is no greater title.

  23. Lois Prince

    Delicates to the one that I Love 💚💛❤️😉😍🥰😘XOXO 💋💋💋💋

  24. Sweet Memories

    This recording came out the same year I started high school. I remember hearing it. Always felt it was strange that the only version was the one from the Righteous Bros. True they own it, but Sam did a wonderful job.

  33. Cathy Woods

    Who sung it first.. Sam, Elvis or Righteous Bros...

  52. michael george

    THIS A SONG that has been sung by every man and his dog but here the GREAT SAM COOKE sings it with total feeling.

  53. Veego von DOOM- Reviews!

    Sam kinda butchered this one.

  54. Mickey Hodge

    Only one Sam ,Thanks for the fine music.


    Its make me mad when you do search in Google and iTunes who is the original singer or first singer OF this music its always says THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHER THE ELVIS ETC... but they never mention SAM COOKE there, well I guess these people are good on stealing shit OF others! This is the problem here in the U.S.A if you are not white they gonna treat you shit! In my opinion if you want to be the AMERICA WHITE AGAIN? I think you guys should keep it in your mind that maybe YOU SHOULD GO BACK TO EUROPE because thats where you belong thats your COUNTRY way way way back then before your ancestors kills these native Indian American and steal the U.S.A to them same what your ancestors did in Hawaii kill most OF people there and change their language.. and also same to the other countries like Philippines .
    To those people doesnt know about the history OF America do the Research first before you talk shit about minority because you guys are same like US “IMMIGRANTS”, “MINORITY”
    Pakyu kayo sampu mga putang ina ninyong mga racist kayo!
    We are all human , we eat a same shit, you poop ,you pees, we drink a same water, we get sick and dies and we are all equal in this planet !
    Spread the Love whatever your colors .

  56. James West

    Sam could lay down a track.

  57. ron freeman

    A more subdued version..but one thats done with style and grace....

  58. Barbie Soli

    MY kind of music, such a great voice to be put out by who knows who or what :(

  59. Carol Taylor

    Sam Cooke's voice.......perfection!

  60. Dave Orange

  69. Shae50

    True story, Sam Cooke was friends with my aunt. My aunt took my mother to see him in concert, he sang to my mother during the show. After that he came to our house for some downtime with my family. Word got out that he was at our place and he could barely get out of the neighborhood! Where did this happen-Baltimore!!

  70. me responde corno viado

  76. Irene Mccann

    I agree, I bet most of them are fifty onwards, no taste for decent music, they are brainwashed, with rubbish.

  77. Terry Chandler

    This beautiful song is searching for a new heart to live in as time has passed on just listen and you will be forever touched. The young may never know how great Sam Cooke really was but if you listen you will so please just listen. Thanks

  78. Terry Chandler

    life is so short and the special moments have to be captured and given to us by someone special like the great Sam Cooke, he touched me with this song in ways I could never imagine and will forever grateful for his blessing! Thanks, Sam

    Sam Cooke Bio on Nexfex Heavey and Sad...

  97. Patti Thomas

    I'd love to dance to this at my wedding.

  98. Ernie Gervacio

    Great great vocals, just had some goosebumps. If only someone can "clone" his voice but I doubt it. I put this on my greatest list.

  99. 113 DmG

    They should make video and mimic scene from movie, but have Sam Cooke lookalike play the ghost. That would be cool!

    113 DmG

    Make video as if it were in the same time period as right before he died.
