About This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)

"This Will Be" is a song written by Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy, and performed by American singer Natalie Cole. Often appended with "(An Everlasting Love)" but not released as such, this was Natalie Cole's debut single released in April 1975 and one of her biggest hits, becoming a number-one R&B and number-six pop smash in the United States and also reaching the UK Top 40. Cole won a Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, a category that had previously been dominated by Aretha Franklin. It would also help her win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Cole had been turned down by every label she approached, but finally gained the interest of Larkin Arnold, who at the time was the executive of Capitol Records, through demos produced by Jackson and Yancy. The two wrote the song at the end of sessions for Arnold, just as he and Cole were about to leave town.

This will be
An everlasting love
This will be
The one I've waited for
This will be
The first time anyone has loved me, oh 

I'm so glad
He found in time
And I'm so glad that
He rectified my mind
This will be
An everlasting love for me, whoa, oh

Loving you
Is some kind of wonderful
Because you've shown me
Just how much you care
You've given me the thrill of a lifetime
And made me believe you've got more thrills to spare, oh

This will be
And everlasting love, oh, yes, it will now

You've brought a lot of sunshine into my life
You've filled me with happiness I never knew
You gave me more joy than I ever dreamed of
And no one, no one can take the place of you, ooh

This will be, you and me, yes, siree, eternally
Huggin' and squeezin' and kissin' and pleasin' 
Together forever through rain or whatever
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you and me
So long as I'm livin' true love I'll be givin', to you I'll be servin'
'Cause you're so deservin'

Hey, you're so deservin'
You're so deservin', yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh
The love, the love, the love, the love, the love, the love
Love, love, love, love
The love, the love, the love, the love, the love, the love, love, love
From now on, from now on
From now on, from now on
From now on, from now on
From now on, from now on, yeah
From now on, from now on 
From now on, from now on
