Song of the moment: “The Look of Love” by Isaac Hayes

Posted in Music with tags , , on December 9, 2009 by The Quintessential Geek

I am cleaning house, listening to one of the best (no, correction, THE best) funk / soul singer of his generation.  R.I.P.

The look of love is in your eyes
The look your heart can’t disguise
The look of love is saying so much more
Than words could ever say, yeah

A look my heart has heard
My, my takes my breath away
I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I’ve waited
Waited just to love you
Now that I have found you

The look of love
Oh, it’s on your face
Oh, mama that look time can’t erase
Be mine tonight

And let this be
The start of so many
Groovy nights like this, yeah
Let’s take a lover’s vow
And seal this thing with a kiss

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you

Now that I have found you
Don’t ever go
Oh no

I can hardly wait to hold you
Feel my arms around you
How long I have waited
Waited just to love you

Now that I have found you
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
The look of love
Don’t go
I love you
Oh, baby
The look of love
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
Don’t go
Aaah

“If you have a large collection of music, you might have thought of editing the sound track for yourself by adding or removing part of it. There are many audio editing tools available that allow you to do the same – edit audio files, like you edit text files by cut, copy and paste. Many of these tools also support audio recording, if you are planning to create your own album then you can edit your tracks by yourself.”
