Story

A very old song of mine that I used to play a lot in the band Cayenne and Spunk in southern VT for many dances. It's got a memorable latin montuno that comes in the middle and propels the song to it's finish. A love song about wanting to make things work in a relationship that's had it's ups and downs.

Lyrics

Love To Spare

 

I will try to love you more

Whose ever fault it is, it's no use keeping score

I will be the one to bend

For I would rather compromise than lose a friend

 

For I know that there is more

And a rainbow at the core

And though we almost reached the end

If you dare to try again

 

Dedicate my life to you

Each and every thing I do

I will never lie to you

I would rather die for you

After all that we've been through

I've got to make it work with you

 

I will try to help us share

The little secrets that have kept us unaware

And I will be the one to care

For I'll be standing by your side with love to spare

 

For I know that there is more

And a rainbow at the core

And though we almost reached the end

If you dare to try again
