Simon, Carly - Love Of My Life Lyrics




I love lilacs and avocados
Ukuleles and fireworks
And Woody Allen and walking in the snow
But you've got to know that

You're the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
From the moment I first saw you
The second that you were born
I knew that you were the love of my life
Quite simply the love of my life

I love Lucy and pumpernickel bread
The Statue Of Liberty and standing ovations
And falling into bed
But get it through your head that

You're the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
From the moment I first saw you
The second that you were born
I knew that you were the love of my life
Quite simply the love of my life

You an drive me crazy
You can drive me anywhere
Here are the keys
Just do as you please
It may not always be easy

But you're the love of my life
My heart is riding on a runaway train
You are the love of my life
through all the pleasure and pain
From the moment I first saw you
I knew it right away
I knew that you were the love of my life
Simply the love of my life
You are the love
The great love of my life.

Carly you have been the back drop to my life, since I heard you 1972, so I have been a admire all my life, when I was so stupid and very immature, because I kinda thoughJT should show and sing for me, wow we have such foolish notions when were are young, I am so very glad to see you doing so well.

    Never looked better or sounded better. I love this song so much for all the meaning it adds to my life.

  24. Paul Christman

    Carly has more class and true beauty in the tip of her little finger than Beyonce, Gaga, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and any other of those contemporary and utterly grotesque and insidious wenches combined. Believe it or not, sex is not a talent.

    Yo Penis smell like pickles And cheese

    Paul Christman you just sound straight up ignorant and stupid but okay

  50. Laurylie Polito

    I am blessed that I came upon this video tonight, it reminded me that you had written it about the love you have for your son Ben. I really needed it today. While I should know better (and really I do) then to believe that my husband of 25 years, Blake will ever be someone I should trust with my affections... We have not been romantically involved for a very long time... Somehow when he is doing his best to convince me that he would actually consider me as another human being in a romantic relationship I lapse into wishful thinking and for a second I hope it could be true... My silly wishful thinking is thankfully soon shattered as he (insert any man I have ever loved here) manages within minutes to treat me as the doormat I am in his eyes. Damn, the truth hurts. I keep thinking over the years that somehow I will find another answer to this equation, but it seems to be the lesson I have chosen to learn over and over in my life. It is the recurring  theme for all the awful endings I have come to find an once again I am utterly shattered, always the fool. I finally embrace the bewildering hopelessness of  something wonderful and good coming out of any relationship a man might have with me, its not going to happen. I knew this when I was young and strong and was careful to never let anyone close enough to let it happen. Somehow I would find foolishly find the courage in spite of myself to let hope come into my heart and find myself fooled, hopes dashed, hope and self confidence destroyed once again.Its comforting to remember the amazing feelings I had, the indescribable love that fills my heart still when I think of  the moment when Trevor was born and so many times since then when I think of how blessed I am to have ever even known him... He (and my daughter Chelsea) along with my older brother Sam are the the very best souls I have ever caught a glimpse of and I am forever grateful to have known them
    I need to p[int this lesson on the walls of my heart so that it will never happen again. 

  51. Laurylie Polito

    I love my son Trevor... 
    I love lilacs and avocados
    Ukuleles and fireworks
    And Woody Allen and walking in the snow
    But you've got to know that

    You're the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    From the moment I first saw you
    The second that you were born
    I knew that you were the love of my life
    Quite simply the love of my life

    I love Lucy and pumpernickel bread
    The Statue Of Liberty and standing ovations
    And falling into bed
    But get it through your head that

    You're the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    You are the love of my life
    From the moment I first saw you
    The second that you were born
    I knew that you were the love of my life
    Quite simply the love of my life

    You an drive me crazy
    You can drive me anywhere
    Here are the keys
    Just do as you please
    It may not always be easy

    But you're the love of my life
    My heart is riding on a runaway train
    You are the love of my life
    through all the pleasure and pain
    From the moment I first saw you
    I knew it right away
    I knew that you were the love of my life
    Simply the love of my life
    You are the love
    The great love of my life.

    Laurylie Polito
    Laurylie, Looking at the time your comments were posted, I can only hope that things have improved for you. I have personal insight for Blake; Wake up!! The personal misery you may feel (and not show to anyone) is shared by the person you swore an oath to love, honor, and cherish for the rest of your life! I was very nearly where you 2 are when I lost my soul mate. The regret you will feel if you lose Laurylie to death, another man, or divorce will be devastating. Losing her to death means there will NEVER be another chance to make things right. Never.
    If either of you want to talk, my email addy is on my profile page.
    If not - God's blessings to you both.

    Laurylie Norman

    Terryp, God bless you for your concern, effort and kindness in trying to help us... I will be forever grateful for waking up today, in time to at the very least do all I can to make sure that our children will come through this with whatever tools I can possibly offer them to see them through and on their way when I am gone. I pray with all my heart that Blake will find his way as well. I can no longer hold hope in my heart that he cares for us or that he will turn around and retrace his steps to where he lost his way. I can not help but see that he would have had a better chance at becoming the man he could be without me reassuring and encouraging him at eachand every step of this path that I would be just fine if he was only happy at last. We all stumble and become lost at times however it is never alright to allow someone to be cruel and mean to you while making excuses, taking the fall and owning the blame for their behavior... I am sad that my children had to live through our bad marraige yet glad that it will soon be finished. Grateful that at last I can understand that I am worthy of decency, live and kindness and I always was. Hopefully this will help me to forgive myself for allowing this to happen. I can not believe my good fortune in coming across your kind words this morning, Thank you. I appreciate this

  52. teresa

    Te  amo,  minha  vida  querida..  Obrigada  pelo  passado  maravilhoso.  Obrigada  pelos  dias  de  hoje.  Obrigada  por  vc  ser  quem  vc  é. Obrigada  por  tudo.  E,  por  favor,  me  desculpe  todas  as  vêzes  em  que  eu  errei...  You  are  the  love  of  my  life  !!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Synderella Blackwood

    Nancy Harn

    +Synderella Blackwood , I also used this song for the mother/son dance. It's perfect.

  54. michael tompkins

    i dont often get to spend much time with my daughter, but today i sent this song to her so that she knows that no matter how far away she goes...shes still the love of my life...

  55. Alvin4NY

    Several times during the last couple of weeks, rather than start my morning with the headlines and whatever else is happening in the world, I've instead begun the morning enjoying Carly Simon's music.  Highly recommend it.....and while I didn't see clouds in my coffee this morning, when I poured in the creamer for my 2nd cup, it did form a perfect heart. 

    NYCBG

    What headlines? :-) Keep it up - music is the universal cure for all the stupidity and filth that encroaches on our lives. 

    Alvin4NY

    Preach!  Looking forward to Carly's book!

  56. Kathy Gabriel

    Beautiful music and lyrics ... plays my heart strings.  A mother's love song.   

  57. Kim Alexander

    The first time I heard this song after becoming an Aunt, I dedicated it to the 3 loves of my life.  I am the proud Aunt of Alexander, my sun; Rebekah, my moon; and Emma my star.  They take my breath away everyday, and they aren't even mine by birth but I can't imagine loving anyone more than I love them.  I love you always and you are growing up into amazing people; people I would be proud to call friends.  

  58. Richard Imparato

    Beautiful Song! No one does it better

  59. Zhay Rodzen, Ph. D.
