Orleans

Orleans is an American pop-rock band best known for its hits "Dance with Me" (1975), "Still the One", from the album Waking and Dreaming (1976) and "Love Takes Time" (1979). The group's name evolved from the music it was playing at the time of their formation, which was inspired by Louisiana artists such as Allen Toussaint and the Neville Brothers. Orleans was formed in Woodstock, New York in January 1972 by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter John Hall, vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Larry Hoppen and drummer/percussionist Wells Kelly. In October of that year, the group expanded to include Larry's younger brother, Lance, on bass. Drummer Jerry Marotta joined in 1976, completing the quintet. more »

Time passes on like a river that must always run;
now you are gone but I will have you till time is done.
You can never take away
the love you gave me yesterday,
and I don't have to capture you
‘cause you're here in my memory.

My life goes on like a song that is never still;
I'll sing that song to the emptiness I'll never fill.
I don't need your photograph
to see your face in front of me.
We may never touch again
but you're here in this melody.

What once was will always be,
and you've left your imprint on me.
Sometimes I think it's the spark of conflict
with which we affect most heavily.
But I hope if you think of me
you'll remember only harmony and

time passes on like a river that must always run;
now you are gone but I will have you till time is done.
You can never take away
the love you gave me yesterday,
and I don't have to capture you
‘cause you're here in my memory.
