Roy Orbison

Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988), also known by the nickname 'The Big O', was an American singer-songwriter, best known for his distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions, and dark emotional ballads. Orbison grew up in Texas and began singing in a rockabilly/country and western band in high school until he was signed by Sun Records in Memphis.

The summer sun went down on
Our love long ago
But in my heart I feel the same
Old afterglow

A love so beautiful
In every way
A love so beautiful
We let it slip away
We were too young to understand
To ever know
That lovers drift apart
And that's the way love goes

A love so beautiful
A love so free
A love so beautiful
A love for you and me
And when I think of you
I fall in love again
A love so beautiful
In every way
A love so beautiful
We let it slip away

And when I think of you
I fall in love again

A love so beautiful
We let it slip away
A love so beautiful
In every way
A love so beautiful
We let it slip away
