About Everlasting Love

"Everlasting Love" is a song written by Buzz Cason and Mac Gayden, originally a 1967 hit for Robert Knight and since remade numerous times, most successfully by the Love Affair, as well as Town Criers, Carl Carlton, Sandra, and Gloria Estefan. The original version of "Everlasting Love" was recorded by Knight in Nashville, with Cason and Gayden aiming to produce it in a Motown style referencing the Four Tops and the Temptations. When released as a single, the song reached #13 on the US chart in 1967. Subsequently, the song has reached the US Top 40 three times, most successfully as performed by Carl Carlton, peaking at #6 in 1974, with more moderate success by the duo Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet (#32 in 1981) and Gloria Estefan (#27 in 1995). In the UK, "Everlasting Love" was covered by the Love Affair: with a standout vocal performance by Steve Ellis it achieved #1 status in January 1968. That version eclipsed the Robert Knight original, which stalled at #40, although the latter was reissued in 1974 and reached #19 in the UK. Also in 1968, a cover by the Australian group Town Criers reached #2 in the Australian charts.

Hearts go astray, leaving hurt when they go
I went away just when you needed me so
Filled with regret I come back beggin' you
Forgive, forget, Wwere's the love we once knew?
Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love
Need you by my side, girl to be my bride
You'll never be denied everlasting love
When other loves are gone, ours will still be strong, we have our very own 
Everlasting love
Real love will last forever
Real love will last forever
Ah, ah
Ah, ah

Where life's river flows, no one really knows
'Til someone's there to show the way to lasting love
Like the sun that shines, endlessly it shine
You always will be mine, it's everlasting love
When other loves are gone, ours will still be strong,
We have our very own everlasting love
Real love will last forever
Real love will last forever
 
Ooh

Open up your eyes, then you'll realize here I stand
With my everlasting love
Need you by my side, girl to be my bride
You'll never be denied everlasting love
When other loves are gone, ours will still be strong, we have our very own 
Everlasting love
