Since I Don't Have You

...Lost in your heart, lost in your eyes
Lost every day, no map to follow
Entire days, weeks, a blur
Flickers of light, in the darkness,
Only to be enveloped in shadows once more...

- Peter Winstanley

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's theme repeats on this day each year:

BONUS -  - Since I Don't Have You - The Skyliners, 1959


"Since I Don't Have You" is a song by the doo-wop group The Skyliners. Released in 1958, the single reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also the top five of the R&B chart. The song, highlighted by a powerful vocal by lead singer Jimmy Beaumont, and a falsetto on the final chorus by Janet Vogel, is considered by oldies fans to be one of the best "heartbreak" ballads ever recorded, and a classic of pre-Beatles rock and roll, and is still frequently played on the radio. The song was featured in the films American Graffiti, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Lethal Weapon 2, and Mischief.

Since I Don't Have You

 Written by Joseph Rock (1884 1962), Jimmy Beaumont, Lenny Martin

Recorded by The Skyliners, December 1958

I don't have plans and schemes,
And I don't have hopes and dreams,
I-I-I don't have anything
Since I don't have you.

I don't have fond desires,
And I don't have happy hours,
I-I-I don't have anything
Since I don't have you.

I don't have happiness, and I guess
I never will again.
When you walked out on me,
In walked old misery,
And he's been here since then.

I don't have love to share,
And I don't have one who cares.
I-I-I don't have anything
Since--I don't--have--
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
