Beautiful Girl
1976; orginally written while married to Pattie Boyd in 1969 and was reworked in 1976
Never seen such a beautiful girl
got me shaking inside
Not the kind you go handing around
want to keep her right there
But this love it don't come as no surprise
and when I saw the way that she smiled at me
I knew it there and then that she was A1
and then I felt the way she was touching me
Was something I had known I was waiting upon
never seen such a beautiful girl
Had me quickly untied
calling to me she made me realize
Not the kind that is lost or is found
she has always been there
A lover needed for this soul to survive
and when I felt the way she got through to me
Was something I had known I was waiting upon
never seen such a beautiful girl
Got me shaking inside
calling on me from deep within her eyes
Not the kind you go handing around
want to keep her right there
But this love it don't come as no surprise

Golden Ring
Eric Clapton, 1978; written after Pattie Boyd found out that George had married Olivia
He gave to you a golden ring
it made you happy, it made you sing
And I played for you on my guitar
it didn't last long, we didn't go far
And though the times have changed
we're rearranged
Will the ties that bind remain the same?
You came around after a while
everyone said that I made you smile
It all went well, and suddenly then
you heard that he would marry again
And though the times have changed
we're rearranged
Will the ties that bind remain the same?
Well I know that I have been here before
I've trod on your wings, I've opened the door
if I gave to you a golden ring
Would I make you happy, would I make you sing?
And though the time have changed
we're rearranged
Will the ties that bind remain the same?

Dark Sweet Lady
1979
My dark sweet lady
you really got to me
you gave me everything
I've really fallen
you came and helped me through
when I'd let go
you came from out the blue
never have known what I'd done without you
My dark sweet lady
your heart so close to mine
you shine so heavenly, and
I love you dearly

Your Love is Forever
1979
Sublime is the summertime warm and lazy
these are perfect days like Heaven's about here
but unlike summer came and went
Your love is forever
I feel it and my heart knows
that we share it together
Resigned to the wintertimes cold and dreary
peering into fire flames, burning I know
that unlike winter came and went
Your Love is forever
I feel it and my heart knows
that we share it together
I feel it and my heart knows you're the one
the guiding light in all your love shines on
the only lover worth it all
Your love is forever

This Is Love
1987
Precious words drift away from their meaning
and the sun melts the chill from our lives
Helping us all to remember that we came here for
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
Little things that will change you forever
may appear from way out of the blue
making fools of everybody who don't understand
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
Since our problems have been our own creation
they also can be overcome
when we use the power provided free to everyone
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love
Oh, this is love, this is la la la-la love
This is love, this is la la la-la love

Never Get Over You
2002
I know I'll never get over you
so deep this feeling I have for you
your eyes pierce through my heart
your smile tears me apart
I knew it, it's so true
I'll never get over you
you touch me, making my heart race
so much was written on your face
I knew when you arrived
that no words could describe
that your love made me do
I'll never get over you
Girl, you're so much heart and soul
Girl, was the moonlit night you came into my life
and now this feeling has grown
and if you leave me alone I know
I'll never get over you
So hide the moments when I feel blue
you warm the coldest feet
can cool me in the heat
and all though love was new
I'll never get over you
My understanding grew
but I'll never get over, never get over you
you, you
