I Won't Last a Day Without You

“What we do not see, what most of us never suspect of existing,
is the silent but irresistible power which comes to the rescue of those
who fight on in the face of discouragement.”

- Napoleon Hill
(26 Oct 1883 - 08 Nov 1970)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This song's been running through my head again. In fact, it runs through my head a good portion of the time.....

BONUS #1 - - I Won't Last a Day Without You - The Carpenters

BONUS #2 - - I Won't Last a Day Without You - Diana Ross

BONUS #3 - - I Won't Last a Day Without You - Barbra Streisand

BONUS #4 - - I Won't Last a Day Without You - Mel Torme and Buddy Rich


"I Won't Last a Day Without You" is a song composed by Paul Williams and Roger Nichols. Williams released his version as a single in 1973, but garnered only minor success. Maureen McGovern recorded the song and also released it as a single in 1973 (and included on her album The Morning After), with results similar to those of Williams. It became a hit single for The Carpenters in 1974, reaching number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number one on the easy listening chart,[1] becoming their ninth number one on the chart.

In 1972, Richard Carpenter had learned of a new song from his partners, Paul Williams and Roger Nichols (composers of the famous Carpenters singles "We've Only Just Begun" and "Rainy Days and Mondays"), and he put it on their A Song for You album. Shortly after, Diana Ross heard it and put it on her album Touch Me in the Morning the following year. In 1974, Barbra Streisand included the song on her album ButterFly. Mel Torme also sang a version of the song, culminating in holding one of the longest last notes in showbiz history, with a full six and a half four-counts.[citation needed]

   I prefer to view it as careful attention to detail and setting the bar for excellence.

“Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others. Without it there is arrogance and evil.”

- Gordon B. Hinckley, October 1964

From - 11/24/17:

Two elderly, excited Southern women were sitting together in the front pew of the church listening to a fiery preacher. When the preacher condemned the sin of stealing, these two ladies cried out, "Amen, Brother!"

When the preacher condemned the sin of lust, they yelled again, "You preach it, Reverend!"

And when the preacher condemned the sin of lying, they jumped to their feet and hollered, "RIGHT ON! TELL IT LIKE IT IS! AMEN!"

But when the preacher condemned the sin of gossip, the two got very quiet. One turned to the other and said, "He's quit preaching and now he's just meddling."

I Won't Last a Day Without You

Composed by Paul Williams (b. 19 Sept 1940) and Roger Nichols, 1972/3

Recorded by The Carpenters, 1974

Day after day, I must face a world of strangers
Where I don't belong, I'm not that strong
It's nice to know that there's someone I can turn to
Who will always care, you're always there

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

So many times when the city seems to be
Without a friendly face, a lonely place
It's nice to know that you'll be there if I need you
And you'll always smile, it's all worthwhile

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

Touch me and I end up singing
Trouble seems to up and disappear
You touch me with the love you're bringing
I can't really lose when you're near
When you're near, my love

If all my friends have forgotten half their promises
They're not unkind, just hard to find
One look at you and I know
That I must learn to live without the rest
I've found the best

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day without you

When there's no gettin' over that rainbow
When my smallest of dreams won't come true
I can take all the madness the world has to give
But I won't last a day .............................without you
