Grass Roots, The - What Love Is Made Of Lyrics




Right now, my love, my trust in you is gone
I can't go on
Because you hurt me so
When you said you love me more
Than you really did
And trust is what love is made of

And now, my love, my dreams have fallen apart
My simple heart
Can't seem to find a way
To make it through each day
Without you near
Oh, dreams are what love is made of

Try to make it alone (Try to make it alone)
Try to make a new start (Try to make a new start)
Try to find reason why I should believe anyone can reach another

And so, my love, I face a world full of doubt
And think about
The lonely years for me
When in my mind I'll see
What might have been
And know that you were what love is made of

Try to make it alone (Try to make it alone)
Try to make a new start (Try to make a new start)
Try to find reason why I should believe anyone can reach another

And so, my love, I face a world full of doubt
And think about
The lonely years for me
When in my mind I'll see
What might have been
And know that you were what love is made of

  2. Heather Gall

    Warren Entner is the most gorgeous man ever! Nice song.

    lrh1966

    Thanks Heather for listening and have an awesome holiday season from Lloyd :)

    MrGoldenthroat

    Heather, you are spot on!!

    Carolyn M

    Warren just had the magic I crave in a man. Masculine, sexy, and a take charge kind. Beautiful voice, too!

  3. Karen Manemeit

    just lovely

    lrh1966

    Thanks Karen for listening and I hope you had an awesome holiday season. Best wishes for 2017 from Lloyd.

    MrGoldenthroat

    You are a woman of impeccable taste, Karen - I agree totally. I've loved this song since 1969 when it came out! Just curious, how long have you known about this tune? Best Wishes, Lenny.

    Karen Manemeit

    MrGoldenthroat To be honest I'm a newer Grass Roots fan,I'm 56 and I always knew about their hits but about a year ago I started watching videos here and I'm stunned how much amazing music they have. I actually prefer the music that wasn't hits. Don't get me wrong I love the hits also but their early music is just incredible. I have now bought what I can on cd all their records. I can't get enough of them, I'm on here every day watching and listening to their music! Be well, Karen

    MrGoldenthroat Lenny by any chance have you listened to the live recording on here its The Grass Roots live in San Francisco California circa 1967. I find it fascinating. It haunts me that I never got to see them live. When I listen to them this early in their career so raw its wonderful! To me anyway I just love it and listen to it quite often. Warren also sings lead on quite a few of the songs and there's also an instrumental. Ha ha I keep going on about it obviously I enjoy it ! Well take care. Karen

  4. hank koopa

    not their best

    MrGoldenthroat

    I couldn't disagree more Hank! I feel it is one of the lovliest ballads not only by The Grassroots but by anyone ever period!

  5. MrGoldenthroat

    God Bless Rick Coonce - the dynamic drummer and great all around person and family man - I'll miss his infectious sense of humor!! Also God Bless Rob!!!

    lrh1966

    Thanks for listening to these timeless Grass Roots tracks.

  6. MrGoldenthroat

    One of the prettiest ballads they've ever made!! Thanks again Irh1966 for exposing countless others out there to this fabulous tune and all your other great posts! This song along with I Can't Help But Wonder Elizabeth, Here's Where You Belong, Melody For You and  Bella Linda rank up there with the loveliest ballads ever by anyone!!

    lrh1966

    Thanks again for checking out these vintage records I posted from over the years, it is a fun hobby archiving older recordings when I get the time to work on these projects.

    Gold Hunter

    +lrh1966 They had a folk rock flare during the '60 and had Steve Barri and PF Sloan writing many of the early songs. PF Sloan wrote Barry McGuire's #1 hit "Eve of Destruction" in I believe 1965. That song is as true today as it was then. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P._F._Sloan

    MrGoldenthroat

    @Gold Hunter Steve Barry deserves a slight minimal amount of credit and contributed
    very little to the collaboration. P.F. Sloan contributed about 95% of everything! I know this for a fact for I was part of the music scene in the sixties.

  7. lrh1966

    Yes, they were a great band that was sort of underrated when compared to the bigger names like the Stones, Doors, and Beatles for example(Which were all great as well!!)...Friends, Lloyd.

  8. MrGoldenthroat

    I never liked what Dennis Provisor brought to the group - and the shift in the direction of their music from that point on. During what I refer to as The Grassroots heyday which includes the albums LET'S LIVE FOR TODAY, FEELINGS, and LOVIN' THINGS - I firmly believe they were the absolute best band of the decade of the sixties!!!

  9. MrGoldenthroat

    This is a gorgeous ballad sung by Warren Entner! - An absolutely amazing singer!! Warren and Rick were and have always been my favorite band members.They turned out their best music while Creed was present. He left due to creative differences and they should have listened to Creed - for once he departed in 1969 the group went steadily downhill with all the revolving door players and sub-par songs - many with bubble gum flavoring! It's a crying shame, the drop off in quality. I knew Warren,Rick!

    @1968bobbyolin

    Yes they were(and are!!) still a great band. Thank you for giving this vintage LP record a listen to...Friends, Lloyd.

  11. Gold Hunter

    This was Warren Entner singing the lead. I believe he wrote it too. Very baroque with that harpsichord. My favorite group in the '60s and over the years. "Let's Live for Today" was as important to that period, in my opinion, as "Come Together or "San Francisco". I met them before a concert in Western Washington College in the winter of '69. To me at 18, it was like meeting the Beatles. Warren showed me the chords to "Let's Live for Today". I made sure my later R&R group included it.

    Diana Buck

    Warren and his sister wrote it together.

    Diana Buck

    She does backing vocals on the track as well.

    @bluegin24

    It was sad about his loss, and thank you for checking one of his classics out...Friends, Lloyd.

    Absolutely love this song. May Mr. Grill rest in peace. Thank you so much for posting.
