I Totally Forgot This!

This song is perfection.

 

Layla- Eric Clapton

What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long.
You know it's just your foolish pride.

Layla, you've got me on my knees.
Layla, I'm begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
Turned my whole world upside down.

Chorus

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don't say we'll never find a way
And tell me all my love's in vain. 

 

Layla was based on a book by a 12th-century Persian poet called Nizami about a man who is in love with an unobtainable woman. The song was fantastically painful and beautiful.

I like this one better than when he played as Derrick and the dominos

Yeah, the fact that EC stole GH's wife was and is still icky to me.

It was also written for and about Patti Harrison.

I totally agree with you there mizzblue!<br />
It is awesome!

OK - this has to be one of the BEST songs ever ever recorded ....
